Our family had the best experience imaginable with this firm. We could not have been more pleased with our architect, Monica Ratliff. We initially chose her as architect for our remodel because we were impressed by two of her projects in the Seabright area of Santa Cruz where we live. However, beyond giving us a great design for our extensive remodel, she was able to work beautifully with our opinionated family, as well as with the contractor and city agencies. She helped us navigate challenging situations with neighbors and government agencies with great professionalism and consideration. She brought respect for the character of the neighborhood to her design, and yet she managed to give us literally every detail of what we personally wanted in our house, without compromising the quality of the design. She consistently saved us on the cost of our project with her knowledge of rules and regulations, her concern for energy efficiency, and her dedication to quality all around for a reasonable price. Not only was Monica top notch, but any contact we had with anyone else at Boone Low Ratliff left us impressed by their competent and caring professionalism.
