Because what other people have to say about us is more important than

anything we could say.

Marty Marren:  John and I recently completed the design and construction of a playground for the Catalyst School in Rach Gia, Vietnam. John was a great collaborator, bringing a reality-check during the design process informed by his years of construction experience, and a determination during the construction that enabled us to complete the build-out in the four days we were allotted. The foundation was delighted by the results and hundreds of children voted their approval with shrieks of delight as they stormed the play structure. I look forward to working with him on the next project: affordable housing for the same community.

Joe Novicki:  The work you completed at our home is something we take great pride in every day. From the first time we met and began the project with your attention to detail and overall great design vision, we knew we made the right decision to work with you. The project was completed on time and within our budget.

Beth Marsh:  The Crossroads/Blue Sky team did an amazing job transforming our home – both inside and out! John’s innovative design created a home that has pleasing curb appeal and addressed our space needs inside. The unique design created a home that flows and does not appear to be a renovation, it looks and feels like a brand new home. The team of contractors were of high quality, finished on time and on budget. We could not be more pleased – we have and will continue to recommend CRBS to anyone looking to improve their home or build a new home.

Dave Kissel:  John is a pro’s pro … one with a rare combination of vision and an incredible attention to detail. We couldn’t be happier with our house … The process of working with John and his team was fun, creative and the results speak for themselves: the work is amazing. And it stands the test of time … we’re still uncovering (and appreciating) some very smart details and features. If the ultimate test is, “Would you work with CRBS again?” we can proudly and affirmatively say, “ABSOLUTELY!”

Dan Barber:  My wife, Jane, and I engaged Crossroads/Blue Sky to undertake a substantial master bath and walk-in closet rehab project. The crews were punctual, reliable and professional in every sense, and flexible when minor changes to the original plans were at times requested. The work was completed on time and results exceeded our expectations.

Brad Jeffery:  John takes great interest in his clients’ needs and desires. He works hard to deliver uncompromising results.

Frank Quigley:  I have worked with John Richert in several Real Estate transactions as investment projects. Our relationship has become more than client/agent, we have become colleagues and friends. We share the same commitment to success. He has a passion for his work and a commitment to his clientele. I would highly endorse John as a quality individual that will provide quality results.

Richard Adler:  I am writing to thank you and your team for the fantastic job you did with our recent kitchen remodeling and addition. The project really turned out nicely and the project management made it as least “painful” as possible. Your creativity and knack for understanding our tastes has resulted in a kitchen that we just love. Kathy and I would recommend your firm to anyone!

Lisa Dempsey:  John is a detail-oriented manager with innovative ideas that helped make our home more beautiful and livable. He was aware of our budget and comfortable with presenting options to make sure we met our financial goals. Our projects were completed in a timely fashion.

Maura Shuey:  John did a great job on updating our 100-year-old home. His designs were well thought out and turned out beautifully! We were gone for most of the demo & work so John oversaw it all to be sure the job would be done on time. It was done efficiently and within budget! We would highly recommend him for large or small scale renovations!

Peter Larson:  We have worked with John and CRBS on multiple occasions over the past 10 years. This work has ranged in size from small or simple design projects to a major renovation. John and his team have always delivered creative and cost-effective solutions to our home design challenges. The CRBS team are highly organized and has always delivered on commitments.

Debbie DeJean:  CRBS completed a large addition to our older home. The character of our 1920's home remains; the addition is seamless. They were creative, meticulous, and current. It was a pleasure to work with them.


Heather Richmond:  We hired John and crbs as our architect and builder for a whole house remodel and couldn't be more pleased with the process and results. The project was on time and budget - and done well. We continue to recommend John to our friends and neighbors.
