Review by in Leander, TX
My wife and I had never built our own house. We both had different ideas about what we would like in our �forever home� along with some similar features, as well, and we had no idea how to bring all of our various ideas together. Because we live out of town, we communicated with Daniel over the phone and via email. The final result was absolutely fantastic! When significant design decisions needed to be made, we would then get together in person over lunch. Daniel had a design process, and outlined all the steps we would work through. Daniel is a talented architect, and we are more than happy to offer this recommendation.

Review by in Austin, TX
Although i didn't actually employ Daniel because my project fell through, I was planning on doing so based on my interaction with him. I did look at a project he worked on during my evaluation process and was impressed. He was very responsive and informative and generously gave me two free consultations: one where he showed me samples of drawings and walked me through the process, and one where we visited some prospective sites and discussed the possibilities. He seemed very professional, and although I couldn't claim his prices were cheap, I would say that his work looked of the caliber I would expect from more expensive architects.

Daniel did what he said he would do and at the price he promised. Our major home remodel went well and we are very pleased with the Daniel's layout, his talent and eye for design and color, not to mention the contractor's appreciation of the drawn plans. From past experiences with architects, their is no ego or overpricing, Daniel was down to earth and a pleasure to work with.

Review by in Leander, TX
It took abit of telephone tag to finally get together but that was due to travel on both of our parts. He visited our property twice and came up with 2 equally viable options. He is friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. I'd call him again if we needed additional advice.

Review by in Round Rock, TX
daniel is really good and nice however i felt like he took longer than we wanted and there was some confusion with the budget and we ended up paying more than we wanted to.so if you work with him be sure you have all your ducks in a row and make your budget and timeline VERY CLEAR!!!! But other than those two issues everything went fine. he is also a little hard to get a hold of him on the phone. however i must say that the extended timeline was not all daniels fault there were some hang ups with the project theat were out of his control.
Response by Daniel Boardman Residential Design: This was an excellent project and I did enjoy working with these clients, although I was a little surprised to hear that there could be any confusion over time or price considering I gave them a 30% discount to accommodate their budget, which was explained 2 times very clearly and in writing on the contract in bold lettering next to there signature. This project was an addition that took me 3 weeks to complete, I squeezed it in between two other custom homes to help them. I think any possible confusion arose from working with two different people who were in a big rush b/c they had already paid a builder and then realized they needed plans.

Review by in Austin, TX
Daniel was very helpful in giving us ideas and direction. His dwgs were very professional and accurate. The only negative was his response time. It seemed he was quite busy and our job was not a very large job, therefore it felt like we were put on the back burner. Fortunately we were not in a big rush so everything was OK.

Daniel was extremely prompt and paid incredible attention to the details that we wanted in our new home! The finished drawings are great and we are about to start construction! I have been in the construction industry for over 30 years and have worked with countless architects.......Daniel ranks up at the top of the list.

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.
