In addition to being an excellent architect, Mike has a unique understanding of the political landscape that is critical to obtaining governmental approval and his involvement does not end with the issuance of the building permit.  The “ownership” that Mike demonstrated during the lengthy construction phase was evident during weekly meetings with our general contractor. His input during construction resulted in a “fine-tuned” residence and the complements we receive continue.   While Mike has many attributes, perhaps his best quality is his ability to listen.
