FR Review:
JD Group receives virtually unanimous acclaim. From homeowners and subcontractors to high-profile designers and even competitors, it seems everybody has something nice to say about this sophisticated, full-service firm. JD Group's sterling reputation was forged building large estate compounds, a tradition it continues today. Commissions for ground-up residences and whole-house renovations run from $1 million to $40 million for 4,000 to 50,000 square foot homes. JD Group navigates the full gamut of high-end architecture, from big name architects to ambitious up-and-comers. Provincial French houses of limestone are on the firm's resume next to contemporary structures. The JD Group is especially praised for historical projects, exemplified by a ground-up Greek villa home featured in Architectural Digest.

Principal Dan McGhee leads the charge for JD Group, formed over 25 years ago. Clients describe McGhee as "a man of unquestionable integrity, vast experience and practical advice." McGhee's fingerprints are visible on every project, which he entrusts to a talented pool of field players. Projects are staffed with professional managers, creative site supervisors and, if a project requires it, clerical support. With 60 employees, all quality-oriented and owner advocates, the firm has great depth. JD Group takes only eight to twelve projects at any one time, working typically in the West LA area. However, we hear the firm is currently working on projects from Orange County to Santa Barbara and even up to the bay area. Clients often turn to JD Group first for their consulting prowess. Budgets are tamed in pre-construction, for which the firm bills hourly or as not to exceed a certain lump sum above the estimate. Contracts are negotiated and cost plus. We hear everything about this firm is high-end, including its costs.

Representative Client Comments:
"JD Group's attention to detail and willingness to consider value-based options made them the perfect builder for our custom contemporary home. They were intent on us getting a perfectly constructed dream house." "Can tackle any project." "Other construction people think really well of him." "Dan has impeccable taste and that reflects in his workers and subcontractors." "Dan stands behind his word." "Very honest and dependable. Able to follow through and handle unforeseen situations." "They recommended cost-effective options and strategies." "If we ever build a house again, the first person we would go to see is Dan McGhee, not an architect."
