“I was deciding whether to sell my house and move, or stay and remodel. After looking at hundreds of homes for sale, I made the decision to stay and remodel. The smartest action that I took was to hire Laura Davis with HPD. Her emphasis on maintaining the integrity of the architecture while simultaneously updating my home to 2013 was a major factor in my decision to go with Laura and her firm.”
