Review by in San Mateo, CA
I highly recommend Alan Olin for any architectural/design work as well. He was such a pleasure to work with...he designed our 100 year old home...bringing the home's true integrity back to life. Our home has been featured in several kitchen/home magazines as well as two kitchen tours. The attention to detail/design is amazing! Thank you Alan!!

Review by in Los Altos, CA
Alan Olin designed a Frank Lloyd Wright Modern Prairie House for us and we are extremely happy. We have lived in the home for 5 years and have only increased our appreciation of the detail Alan made possible.

Review by in Manteca, CA
I highly recommend Alan Olin for any architectural/design work. He made possible the 7000 sqft $6 million owner/builder custom home we built in Los Altos Hills. He took my design requirements, made appropriate suggestions and produced the drawings and specifications needed for city and county approvals. He has a wealth of experience in residential building regulations and works cooperatively with engineers, planners and building department officials to effectively solve problems. His recommendations for structural engineers, surveyors etc were excellent and he is very easy to work with.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
