From the very beginning, I felt that Elysha genuinely heard me and understood my vision and my trepidations. Her ability to listen and advise made the experience far less terrifying then I had feared it would be (I'd been putting off the work for 18 months for this very reason).
By the time the work had commenced, the anxiety and detail obsession that I had started with had almost completely faded. I TRUSTED this woman, and more importantly the mutual respect she had with the contractors made me know that there wasn't going to be a gulf between the design and build phases and that the work would be done with the tradesmen's best efforts. How many sleepless nights did that save? I don't even know.
I never felt ignored, I knew our goals were aligned, even when we encountered the inevitable problems that I'd read about (terrible old work discovered behind walls, contractor delays, material backorders, etc), it never took long to have work orders adjusted and rescheduled to optimize the project's completion.
The finished product is exactly what I desired, but more importantly the journey was smooth and I felt like I had a true partner walking with me the whole time. Confident, supportive, and strong. The true Trifektah!
