FR Review:
Jay Bruder brings a variety of talents to the table. As a native Angeleno, Bruder has a profound interest in architecture, and we hear that translates into a very sensitive approach to renovation and good working relationships with project architects. Bruder is said to carry "a heartfelt appreciation for the intrinsic beauty of classic architecture" into every job, including renovations of homes by the likes of Paul Williams and Summer Spaulding. Clients remark on the firm's ability to reproduce levels of craftsmanship and attention to detail of older homes.

The majority of its work consists of new construction from the ground up, additions and renovations. Bruder helms six to nine big projects a year, ranging from $500,000 to $12 million. The firm specializes in photographic restoration of old homes to their former glory. However, on a more progressive note, Bruder has more than once added a low-voltage sliding roof for star gazing. The firm's work can be seen from Pasadena to Malibu to Bel Air, to Brentwood to Beverly Hills to Rancho Santa Fe, and has been featured several times in This Old House magazine. Bruder was featured in the 2016-2017 Luxury of Home coffee book as the Best Builder of Custom Residential Homes in Los Angeles.

Clients cite Bruder's "aesthetic sensibility and grace in handling clients" as a major strength. He attends all project meetings and manages the time-line schedule, assisted by his office, the field project managers and finish carpenters. We hear that the amount of paperwork can be overwhelming, but ultimately clients agree that the firm makes working together "a sheer joy." Bruder will even work around a client's lifestyle, starting work later in the day so as not to disturb their sleep.

Representative Client Comments:
"Over a six month period, I worked with Jay Bruder on a daily basis and found it to be the most satisfying relationship I've ever had with a builder." "His work is outstanding and his subcontractors are excellent in every area."
