Testimonials

We're proud to receive some exceptional compliments from our clients and here are just a few of them.

JJ designed a beautiful house for my wife and I. He took what was in our head and completely placed in on paper. From the initial meeting until the final design, it was a pleasant, professional, and enjoyable process. EDG is a great firm to design your dream home.

We have worked with JJ Barja and his team at Elite Design Group to design and develop single, large scale, custom homes for our clients as well as complete product lines for our business. JJ Barja is an incredibly talented individual who has the unique gift to be able to listen to your wants/needs/desires and translate them very quickly into a home plan. I consider him an artist in what he does. He has a good eye for the finer points that really make a home, has a very good understanding of how the house fits together and His finished plans are very detailed and easy to build. His team does a great job of taking plan concepts and producing high quality working drawings. I continue to use JJ Barja and the Elite Design Group to develop our home plans and have not hesitated to refer him to my clients and friends.

As a custom builder, I am always dealing with customers that have specific needs and desires. Elite Design Group is one of the best at trying to achieve the complete satisfaction of my clients. They are very good at listening to what my clients want in their custom house along with providing them suggestions to make it even better. Once the final product is complete, my clients always feel comfortable that they have made the right choice on the plan development process.

EDG was amazing to work with. We hired JJ with some idea of what we wanted our home to look like and what we wanted our layout to be. JJ really took our idea and made it into our dream home. He listened to all of our wants/needs and was very creative on the room setup as we had a small narrow lot to build on. He was very easy to work with, quick with his work and have recommended him to all of our friends and family.

We are considering remodeling our home and we asked JJ to work on some designs for us. We chose him since we had seen some of his previous work and knew it matched our style. He was great to work with throughout this process. He came over, assessed the space and discussed our goals. He returned with drawings and worked with us until we felt they were perfect. Unfortunately when we requested bids from contractors we realized that we wouldn't be able to execute the initial plans so we went back to JJ for a scaled down version. He quickly revised the designs to work within our existing house footprint. We are happy with the new designs and planning to move forward with these recent plans.

We had a sketch drawn up over a year ago of our dreams for an addition on our lake house. The sketch was based on input from my husband and myself while walking around our home. We admired his ability to combine our differences into something we both loved. We have not acted on it yet, but we have been dreaming about it ever since. We plan to contact them shortly to begin the next step in the process.

We have worked with EDG on our primary residence as well as a vacation home in the mountains. We had a vision for our primary residence that we asked EDG to adhere to, but we gave them full reigns on the mountain house and we couldn't be happier. We have been told that the house is the most beautiful house on the entire mountain (which is located in a very popular ski town), and the materials that were selected on this house are rarely used or even known about.

EDG is a very flexible and easy to work with company. If you have an exact plan in mind or have no idea what you are looking for, their proven track record will steer you in the right direction.

After going through 2 large projects with EDG I would highly recommend them and will use them again if my wife would let us build again!

I am a custom builder in Charlotte, North Carolina. When the time came to design our last house we chose Elite Design Group. J.J. Barja and his team are not only great home designers, but without question, the best "listeners" in the area. I would defintely use them again and would highly recommend their firm.
