Glickman Design Build is built on the foundation of service. Russ Glickman and his team of design and remodeling experts has been serving the Montgomery County, MD, Washington, DC and Northern Virginia area for over 33 years. Here’s what some of our clients have to say about their experience working with Glickman Design Build.
Combining function with beauty
The Glickman team saw our vision and transformed it into the masterpiece we have today. The plans and contract superbly depicted our goals at a reasonable price… Every phase far exceeded our expectations.”
~Julian & Anne Wright, Bethesda, MD
“As your satisfied clients we want to express our sincere gratitude. Only minor changes had to be made during construction. We are very pleased with the final product. The project receives the highest compliments from all visitors who see it, both for the beauty of the room and the quality of the construction.”
~ Roger Berry and Gene Hufford Washington, D.C.
We respect our clients, their space, and their time.
“Dear Mr. Glickman, we undertook this project with some trepidation since we had heard the usual horror stories from people who had dealt with companies who were undermanned, had underbid a project, or who turned a 3 month project into a 9 month disaster. Not only was the job finished in the time called for, it turned out beautifully. I want to personally commend your team for making our remodeling experience a most rewarding venture. We absolutely love our new master suite and bath. If our votes count, you will win the national NARI competition hands down. Thanks again.”
~ Jill R.M. Alexandria, VA
“I want to extend an “EXCEPTIONALLY WELL DONE‟ to all the Glickman team involved in this project. All phases of our construction were completed on schedule and precisely on price.”
~ Julian & Anne Wright, Bethesda, MD
“I interviewed three builders, and two architects and one of the bigger, better know remodeling companies in Montgomery County. None of them really struck me as having much experience working with someone with disabilities or aging in place. …I happened to see an article in The Gazette and found Glickman Design Build, who had done some advising for the county, and made an appointment with Russ Glickman. We did an initial walk through and he listened carefully as we articulated our wants and needs…I wanted to assure that we didn’t end up looking “added on” or “stuck together.” We selected Glickman Design Build after looking at some of the photos on the web site, and realizing that he had solid experience with remodeling, good ideas to share and firsthand experience with the challenges of accessibility. The big picture is that Russ Glickman builds a team that works cooperatively together to create a product that met our specific needs. The smaller pieces were that communication was stressed, details attended to, and we knew who was coming to do what work, and when. Our space was respected, and the smaller pieces fit nicely together to make a wonderful and useful addition to our home. ~ Kathleen T. Silver Spring, MD
Four months of meticulous tearing down and building up… They didn’t leave a spot on the floor or a drink on the wall. Glickman’s stance is that the customer is always right and that’s very refreshing.” ~ Jane Strauss, McLean, VA
Anticipating needs before they become a problem
“Russ was at the top of the list and quickly proved out as the advocate we’d been hoping for… I could spend a whole day describing our needs to a new home building supervisor, but they couldn’t really help us, or even tell us where to get help. We were just locked out, so Russ was a miracle. Working initially without compensation, Glickman accompanied Latha on house-hunting expeditions — simultaneously concentrating on Sai’s prognosis and probable needs.”
~ The Ganesan Family Gaithersburg, MD
Tackling hard-to-do remodel projects
“We hired a [another] contractor [unfortunately, not Russ Glickman] to remodel a bathroom and create a barrier-free shower for use now by visiting relatives and later, for our safety and convenience during retirement. The contractor we chose built a beautiful shower… that within 90 days was leaking into the room below. The contractor would not stand behind his work and we were struggling to find any contractor who would redo someone else’s job. Through a local magazine article we heard of Russ Glickman and his credentials in “accessible” design. He correctly diagnosed the construction issues in our shower and his crew rebuilt our shower in less than a week, starting when promised and finishing ahead of schedule, neat and tidy and on-budget. In short, Russ quickly replaced our bad remodeling experience with a great one.
~ Ray and Carol Armstrong, Rockville, MD
Going above and beyond to make the customer happy
“The quality of work, attention to detail and
consideration of my special circumstances far exceeded my expectations.
~ Alice R. Cook, Chevy Chase, MD
