David Hawk – President
“My Dad who was a perfectionist and who was the most honest person I have had the privilege of knowing, taught me by living example that your personal integrity is your most valuable asset. If you treat people with honest integrity, you will never want for a friend or for a client. I am proud to say that the best friends I have are also clients.”
David earned a Business degree from the University of Missouri St Louis. Early career accomplishments in the Silicon Valley electronics industry included managing national sales organizations, general management and quality control. This experience gave David a strong operations background and intense training in the importance of zero defects and client communications and service to ensure long-term relationships.
Tired of travel and the corporate setting, David made a life-changing decision for his young family, moving to Colorado to pursue his passion for remodeling and to build his own legacy.
Since 1992, David has continued his education and leadership in the remodeling industry. He has been active in supporting the professionalism of the industry by serving on the Board of Directors of the Home Builder’s Council of Professional Remodelers. He holds certification as a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS), Certified Lead Paint Renovator by the EPA, has served on industry advisory councils for major manufacturers, and has been called on as expert court witness in industry disputes.
With the exception of living in Germany for three years, Michelle Eliason has lived in Denver for over 30 years. Her professional life took root in the business world, and then her passion for design and desire to help others led her to return to school for an interior design degree. Michelle’s business acumen, plus an eye for the creative, makes for a winning combination in designing functional, beautiful spaces in an organized fashion.
Michelle has over five years combined experience working in the home-building industry as well as with commercial and residential design materials. She now works exclusively in kitchen and bath design, a field that fulfills her analytical and creative interests. Clients are pleased by Michelle’s drive to provide excellent customer service and her keen interest in helping them achieve their remodeling goals — aesthetically, functionally and within budget. When she isn’t designing, Michelle runs a neighborhood supper club, participates in book club, coaxes her husband on exotic trips, and reluctantly exercises to justify girls’ night out at decadent restaurants.
Coming from the culinary field, Jeanne brings a unique perspective to her clients and the creative process — combining her love of cooking and food with 16 years of design experience in New York and Denver. Jeanne loves learning and being a strong resource for her clients. Her approach combines creating a functional and beautiful space that brings each customer’s vision to life. “I strive to quickly learn my client’s priorities for their project so that I can give us the tools, as a team, to make their new space a reality. I value the individuality of each family, and project, and enjoy working with them to create their dream space.”
Jeanne is an avid reader and also enjoys gardening, biking, hiking, yoga and swimming. She loves living and working in beautiful Colorado.
With a background of commercial interior design, art and architecture history Linda appreciates all styles of architecture and design and enjoys helping clients to identify their own style. While she practiced commercial interior design for over 12 years, her passion for remodeling homes began when she and her husband bought their first home, a 1907 fixer upper. Her weekends and hobby became consumed with what project to tackle next. An original 1950’s ranch was her subsequent purchase and project — and from there she began doing interior design and kitchens and baths for clients, as well.
Linda has the ability to “peel back the layers” and envision what a space has the potential to become with re-planning and new finishes. She is an exceptional space planner and prides herself on her attention to detail and project foresight. She enjoys helping clients identify what their own style is and incorporating it into their new design. Linda is excellent at listening to her clients’ wish lists and incorporating these elements into the design while meeting their budget. “A remodeling project is an opportunity to truly make improvements, not just changes.” This is when a client will be genuinely happy in their remodeled home.
When not remodeling, Linda enjoys spending time with her husband and two children and attending their many activities and events. As a family, they enjoy skiing the beautiful Colorado Rockies and golf.
