FR Review:
Sources tell us this intelligent, down-to-earth, and "civilized" contractor performs high-end residential renovations with good workmanship and a good attitude. References only half-jest that the "pleasantness" and "timeliness" of working with RD Wright "will help keep your marriage together" during a stressful renovation. The firm is also diplomatic with sensitive neighbors and co-op boards.

After working his way from the South of France to Greece as a skilled laborer, principal Doug Reetz came home and started his firm in 1986. Clients find Reetz to be a "charming" character who will volunteer ideas for managing costs and improving efficiency," and "always sticks to his word." Sources tell us he does not cut corners and is a hands-on leader for his strong staff of fifteen. Gut renovations generally start at $400 per square foot and end up costing $2 million. For his many repeat customers, Reetz will also work on small tasks with budgets of $150,000.

Representative Client Comments:
"We were blessed to have a contractor with energy and commitment to completing our renovation." "Under-promised and over-delivered." "Highest quality craftsmanship from all their trades." "Easy to talk to and patiently explains every detail." "He gets the job done, and you will like him when the job is over." "Folksy style, but extremely professional and responsive." "I never have to chase him." "He can communicate well with the client and the architect." "Despite setbacks and debate with the co-op's architect, the project was delivered on schedule and with detail and beauty we did not originally expect." "A year later we still get timely response to requests for adjustments." "You will probably want to be his friend and will love living in your apartment." "Doug's humor and calm problem-solving lowered my blood pressure."
