Russ Glickman of Glickman Design Build is creative, fun to work with, trustworthy, & talented. We are very pleased with Russ' services - designing and building. We liked his crews and felt everyone was professional and helpful. We undertook this master suite addition project with some trepidation since we had heard the usual horror stories from people who had dealt with companies who were undermanned, had underbid a project, or who turned a 3 month project into a 9 month disaster. Not only was the job finished in the time called for, it turned out beautifully. I want to personally commend your team for making our remodeling experience a most rewarding venture. We absolutely love our new master suite and bath. If our votes count, you will win the national NARI competition hands down. Thanks again." ~ Jill R.M. Alexandria, VA

Russ & Glickman Design Build did a great job for us. Russ Glickman designed and built a two story addition and outdoor living spaces including a new master bedroom/bathroom suite with walk-in enormous closets; a newly expanded and renovated kitchen; an enlarged family room; a breakfast nook; a fireplace; a screened porch, deck, stone patio, outdoor kitchen and spa. As satisfied clients we want to express our sincere gratitude. Only minor changes had to be made during construction. We are very pleased with the final product. The project receives the highest compliments from all visitors who see it, both for the beauty of the spaces and the quality of the construction. We highly recommend Russ Glickman to friends and would not hesitate to use Glickman again. Congratulations on your recent national awards. Being named one of the Top50 remodelers in the nation by Remodeling Magazine was quite an honor! I also congratulate Russ on his recent Regional Chrysalis Award Award for Universal design which he earned by helping a family recover from tragedy after the death of a father who cared for a child with significant physical challenges. Russ is as trustworthy and talented a professional as you will ever find! J.H. Y. Bethesda, MD

Very pleased with Russ Glickman & crew. We wanted to stay in our home until they carry us out feet first! Therefore, we wanted to make our home fully wheelchair accessible; with a caveat…we did not want it to look at all wheelchair accessible! Russ Glickman was the perfect choice for this project. Russ has not only has 30+ years of award winning remodeling experience, but he also has personal experience with accessible remodeling. Russ has a son Mike with Cerebral Palsy who has lived at home and has been confined to a wheelchair for 23 years. If you are considering a accessible design/build you MUST talk with Russ! I highly recommend Glickman Design Build over and above all others! Ron Janssen Bethesda, MD

Awesome! Best design/build remodeler in DC area!! Very Talented! Adept, honest a pleasure to work with Russ and his crew. Russ Glickman recently completed a whole house design and renovation for us. We had Russ' team design and build a large addition, an elevator, a master suite, a kitchen expansion and remodel and other renovations. Originally, I planned to get several estimates. Russ was the 2nd appointment. After meeting Russ, I knew he was the right professional for our project. Russ asked lots of questions, and not only understood our concerns, but he helped uncover our needs. His team was respectful of our property, they cleaned up well, the project was on time, on budget and of award winning quality. It is totally accessible but does not even appear to be.
