We are now Design Build Planners. The main reason for the rebranding is that for years, with the name Design Build Pros, some homeowners thought that we were actually builders and remodelers. We are a project design firm that offers homeowners a unique pre-production consulting service for any type of remodeling or construction.
Digging even further back, the original company name from the 2010 incorporation was Design Build Profit since the initial plan was to offer business coaching to remodeling companies as well our design services on their behalf for homeowners. While quickly successful, we felt that dealing directly with homeowners up front and then introducing them to remodelers was more effective and a better process for all. However, having “Profit” in the name was not the best approach to attract homeowners so we created the DBA Design Build Pros. In hindsight, we should have made the original name Design Build Prophet.
Very soon, Design Build Pros became a recognized and respected name among contractors, suppliers and homeowners. DBP for short. DBP and its process has been the subject of many industry articles. Neil Parsons, a four-decade remodeling industry veteran, has been a featured speaker for events and interviewed in several podcasts. Jason, Neil’s younger brother, has won design awards for his exceptional, incredibly realistic computer renderings. He was also previously named as a Top 40 Remodeler Under 40. Both Jason and Neil have been on HGTV as well. Upon graduating the University of Miami three and a half years ago with honors, Andrew, Neil’s son, made the duo a trio of Parsons. He is now the DBP Director of Business Development.
DBP projects have won dozens of awards and many have been featured in magazines and on websites. DBP proudly has over 100 projects featured on Houzz plus over 40 amazing reviews! Over the years, DBP has helped several remodelers win local and national awards including remodeler/contractor of the year honors. Through DBP mentoring, several companies have more than doubled their volume and market presence.
In 2017 the team welcomed Jacki Venezio as DBP’s Move or Improve Consultant. As an accomplished professional realtor, Jacki is well-suited to advise homeowners on remodel or sell options and return on investment when considering a very large renovation project. Additionally, Jacki has a great, natural design sense that she utilizes when staging her real estate clients’ homes for an open house. Now, as the CEO/owner of Design Build Planners, her style and design input plus as her business acumen will be incorporated.
Design Build Planners has purchased the Design Build Pros website, project and design portfolio, software and all its social media sites. The new DBP team is excited to deliver the same great award-winning service…PLUS! Among the next steps, will be growth and expansion locally and nationally.
