” I have been working with BOD for the past 2 years on 3 brand new single family homes in Menlo Park & Burlingame and plan to work with them for future projects. As a developer I feel really comfortable to work with Hamed and his team. They spend enough time with clients to understand their needs and share their own experiences to get the best outcome. Also the idea of a 3D rendering that is included in their Drawing package help a lot to have a realistic idea about the project. So if you are looking for a designer to help you to get what is in your mind, I recommend to hire BOD.”
