Listen in as Evan takes us through the evolution of CroweBuilt over the past six years, touching on his keys to thriving in a down market as well as exciting technological developments for the industry, QR codes being among them.

Evan speaks on the importance of setting expectations with clients early on and how CroweBuilt is able to skillfully honor the architect’s vision while factoring in the client’s needs and desires.

He talks about the advantages of being a cost-plus builder, his strategy for pricing in upgrades and options along the way, and how giving clients a construction questionnaire early on has been an invaluable part of the entire process.
