Consulting Residential Team | Step Into Your Worry-free Success …
Our consulting service for the most part, is a two stage process. Often however, our consulting services, including professional advice and project management assistance do not end until a Client’s needs are satisfied and the Project is fully completed.
The Urbane Residential Consulting Process In A Nutshell
Initially, from the point of first contact with us, we engage in a phone consulting session with our potential Client. The phone consultation is the starting point for every inquiry we receive and every project we give our consideration to.
Consulting helps us understand the Clients’ directives, objectives and what they are looking for. Sometimes it is real estate, sometimes a new custom home design.
Whatever the case, it is important for us to have a clear understanding and general information about the Client. How they wish to live on, and use their land, is important if we are to be of maximum help to people in achieving their goals.
This phone consulting conversation is a service we provide to every prospective Client – and it’s FREE. It also helps us to determine who the best choice would be for them within our Firm.
Also, during the phone consultation, we will explain our Company protocol, the way we work, discuss the systems we’ve developed and utilize.
During this initial consulting conversation, we sometimes even provide professional advice when necessary.
Typically, we also make a preliminary determination of our compatibility between each other to work together.
The Client typically does a similar assessment and makes a related determination during the consulting process.
We’ll also answer any questions and explain how we charge for our services, as well as giving a clear understanding of our fee and rate schedules.
Most of the time our potential Client will want to come to our Offices to meet with us for more extensive consulting dialogue.
During this discussion time in either case, we need to gather information about the Clients’ needs, lifestyle and tastes to ensure effectively working together and a successful relationship down the road.
A proper initial consulting phase is the cornerstone for each project we engage in.
Our Team of Professionals lay the groundwork by dedicating the extra time and care to ensure that we know everything we need to – including budgetary matters.
We also make sure and explain everything, so the Client knows what they need to about us. From there, we are generally retained and officially hired as the consulting agency for our Clients, in whatever capacity they need us.
Residential Consulting Services For Your Every Need
Sometimes however, a Client may wish to conduct this typical process in the reverse. Some will request us directly for an on-site appointment, or to conduct a formal consulting session at their property.
This consulting service of course, carries our standard hourly fees, which are in complete alignment with schedules set out by the Professional Consultants, Engineers and Architects Association’s guidelines, and are based on the individual skill-set, experience and seniority of our Pro who will be conducting the consulting visit.
In a more typical scenario however, it is only after the successful completion of the phone, and/or, Office consultation, that we get booked by the Client to attend and conduct a field consulting session, or a walk-through of a property.
There are also many occasions, where a Client will retain us on a turnkey basis, to do any variety of consulting tasks, related to real estate, lifestyle enhancement, design, project scope, trouble shooting, project management and many other functions.
There is great value in the fees involved for this process.
In addition to walking through the property together, we gather data first hand and get a crystal clear visual of how things should and need to be laid out for the Clients needs.
We take our time with you and detail the entire process.
We’ll discuss the Sales Listing Contract, the Offer To Purchase, permits, architecture or engineering, for example.
Our Pro will empower you with the knowledge, ideas and the advice you will need for a successful project.
An Added Bonus – These Consulting Fees Are Credited Back To You
Later, as we advance together, we’ll credit a portion or all of the consulting fees you paid to us, toward any Design or Construction work required or requested of us. It’s just one of many ways we help with your budgetary guidelines and it’s also one of our ways of saying ‘thank you’ for your business. Not every Company works this way!
Not every Company goes to the great consulting lengths that we do to ensure a Clients’ complete comfort, satisfaction and success in their proposed project. Not every Contracting Firm is equipped with the knowledge, experience or skill-set to handle everything for you.
Whenever there are unknown elements to a project, shortcuts taken, or when things are not properly understood or handled – there will always be problems – always!
That’s why our consulting process is so detailed and refined, and with an entire Integrated Team of Professionals in their fields of expertise. It ensures an error-free working relationship together and to achieve that, consulting and communication are paramount.
The Urbane Residential Group of Professionals recognize that we are not perfectly suited for every Client, but for the ones who we are – they can expect an exciting, rewarding, stress-free and fun experience.
Through our two stage consulting process, the guess work is eliminated and we begin to develop the deep-rooted relationship with every Client who chooses to work with us.
The typical rifts caused by moving forward to Design and Build are eliminated through our comprehensive UCG System For Success – that has been perfected by 43 + years in the making.
A great accountant can save you loads of grief and money at tax time. Similarly, our Professional Team can save you a heap of heartache and wasted cash at project time – no matter how simple or complex and no matter what your project may be.
