NARI Master Certified Remodeler

Glickman Design Build’s Own Russ Glickman Receives Master Certified Remodeler Designation

The Glickman team is excited to announce that company president Russ Glickman has recently achieved the prestigious top honor of Master Certified Remodeler (MCR) by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).

The designation of MCR emphasizes Glickman’s superior remodeling knowledge, dedication to the industry, and community involvement. NARI’s MCR program measures skill and expertise valued not only by other professional remodelers, but by consumers as well. Highly respected by those who have achieved the designation, the MCR program identifies professional remodelers who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of business management, ethical conduct, and technical skills.

In addition, those with the MCR designation must adhere to NARI’s strict Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. The NARI certification program assesses the knowledge and skills of the remodeler in more than 20 remodeling task areas including business methods and practices, building codes and construction law, planning and building site layout, and all trades skills required in remodeling your home. Attaining this certification requires the candidate to have attained the Certified Remodeler (CR) designation and maintained it current for a minimum of 10 years. The candidate must have achieved at least one additional NARI Certification and served in a NARI chapter or a community leadership position.


“I’m honored to be recognized as a Master Certified Remodeler,” says Russell Glickman, president of Glickman Design Build. “From every remodel project our firm completes to our efforts in the community, we strive to be leaders in the industry.”

Quote from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) website:

“Master Certified Remodeler (MCR). You won’t see too many of these, but if you do, pay careful attention. This designation is given only to individuals who hold at least two certifications from NARI, and have held the CR for at least ten consecutive years. They also must demonstrate significant leadership in the industry. These are the leaders of our industry.”

Glickman is also certified as a NARI Universal Design Certified Professional (UDCP) based on his and Glickman Design Build’s comprehension and skill in principles attractive not only to those who wish to age-in-place, but also families with special needs and families who are forward thinking
