"On January 20, 2012, my wife and I returned to our home of 29 years and immediately detected something was wrong. Within 30 seconds we found water pouring through the ceiling of the first floor foyer and family room; a water pipe broke in the wall of the second floor bath and the water had been running for days.  We immediately contacted our insurance company for assistance.

The insurance adjuster arrived and advised us that we suffered a major loss that would require 10-12 contractors to repair the damage. The adjuster advised us that due to the number of contractors involved, it would be necessary to hire a Project Manager (PM). We  narrowed the list of PM's, and with the assistance of the insurance adjuster hired "Jane of All Trades".

Andrea arrived the next day and immediately started to organize the project  by obtaining estimates from all the contractors and coordinating the budget with the insurance company to ensure we did not have any "surprises" from either the contractors or the insurance company.

After five months of daily on-site management, our house was returned to us in better condition then before the incident. Andrea provided daily updates to include photos as well as the critical responsibility of tracking the budget by line-items.

Without the professional and meticulous oversight by Andrea, we could never have managed this project to its successful completion. There are many contractors who claim they can perform at a very high level, but there are few who actually can.  Andrea far exceeded the expectations of the insurance company as well as us, the homeowners. Andrea, thank you for all you hard work and dedication."
