When you work with a Realm advisor, you get unbiased answers to your biggest questions so you can move forward with confidence.
Daydreaming about future renovations? Trying to figure out which project to tackle first (and second, and third)? Wondering about the best way to finance your remodel? Whether you’re planning to renovate next year or further down the road, your Realm advisor will give you a clear picture of what’s possible.
If you’re ready to renovate, a Realm advisor will provide expertise and support through every step of the process. From project planning to financing guidance, a Realm advisor makes renovating easy.
It’s frustrating when a project stalls. Maybe you ran into bureaucratic red tape or your contractor fell through. Or maybe you tried to DIY something and found yourself in over your head. Whatever the reason, our advisory team has the experience, expertise, and local knowledge to get your project back on track.
When you’re exploring and planning potential projects, your Realm advisor will put together a customized report, including:
✅ Accurate project cost
✅ Impact on home value
✅ Local zoning rules
✅ Financing options
✅ Rental data (if you’re building an ADU or J-ADU)
Having a design in-hand ensures you get accurate quotes from contractors. Once you’ve decided on a project, your advisor will pair you with an Realm designer who will provide:
✅ Design consultation (ideas and input welcome!)
✅ Layout options and recommendations
✅ A custom design for your project
When you’re ready to get bids, we’ll match you with three vendors who have been thoroughly vetted using comprehensive criteria, including:
✅ Reviews: We audit major review sites to ensure past customers are happy.
✅ License: We check to ensure vendors’ licenses are active and in good standing.
✅ Permits: We verify that vendors have experience with permitted projects similar to yours.
✅ References: We call at least 2 past customers to confirm they were satisfied with the vendor’s work.
✅ Pricing: We use our proprietary database to verify that each bid you receive is competitive for your neighborhood.
✅ Contracts: We review each vendor contract to ensure it meets industry standards and contains all the necessary components, from fair payment schedules to important insurance details.
On a daily basis, we get the chance to ease fear and anxiety and truly improve people’s lives both emotionally and financially.
