Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Architects Award Winner: Kendle Design Collaborative

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Kendle Design Collaborative is an award winner for architects in Arizona for the second year in a row!

If you’re looking for an architecture firm that can bring your vision to life, look no further than Kendle Design Collaborative in Scottsdale.

Kendle Design Collaborative has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 4.81 stars, earning them a fantastic Rating Score™ of 95.14 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five architects in all of Arizona!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that helped them win for the second year in a row:

“We have admired Brent’s design of contemporary homes over the years and knew he would be our first call when we decided to build another home. In addition to tremendous talent, Brent is a good listener and quickly responded to our questions. Brent created our beautiful new home with a floor plan that will fit the changes life presents through the years. The details of his work have been admired by many.” – Linda B.

Maintaining a Strong Online Reputation by Sticking to Their Word

Brent Kendle, the owner of Kendle Design Collaborative, sat down with us for a few minutes so that we could learn about what his team has been up to over the last year.

Winning a Top Rated Local award once is a sign that a company knows how to build a solid online reputation, but as a second-time award winner, Kendle Design Collaborative clearly has a lot of insight into also maintaining their online reputation. Brent told us that it all comes down to doing what they say they will, as well as to providing the best design and service they can to their clients. He also pointed to their passion and ability to listen to their clients and follow through on what they need.

When asked what makes Kendle Design Collaborative stand out, Brent said:

“We have a total of five people, and we are a boutique design firm focused on modern luxury design. Modern is what we are passionate about. We were doing modern design before it was popular and everyone started jumping on the bandwagon. Being small allows us to be very choosy about the clients and projects we take on. We focus solely on the work that has the greatest potential for outstanding design and elevated client experience. Our primary market is in Arizona; however, we have projects underway in multiple states, as well as proposals for homes in Portugal and the Middle East.”

Every new year comes with new lessons and new achievements, and when we asked what those were for Kendle Design Collaborative, Brent told us:

“The biggest lesson for anyone is that character matters. What you do when people are not looking is more important than what you do when people are looking. Integrity is everything.
We aren’t perfect, but when we fall short, we take ownership of it and move forward. We may work in the fifth-largest city in the US, but it is truly a small town. One instance of dishonesty or slip of character can sink a business for good, ruining your reputation with the individuals that ultimately have the ability to bring you success.”

Brent went on to tell us about their biggest accomplishment:

“Our biggest accomplishment has been to assemble and keep a core team of individuals who
have the highest character, are very talented and hard-working, and are passionate about what they do. It is really what allows us to do what we are able to do. We could not be successful without the talent and passionate people who are committed and want to work for this company continuously.”

Looking Forward with Kendle Design Collaborative

Being a part of a small business is not always easy, and that’s why we wanted to know why they do what they do at Kendle Design Collaborative. Brent shared with us:

“The most rewarding part is getting to do what we love and getting paid for it. Everyone here is passionate about what they do to the point that,if it wasn’t our profession, it would be our hobby. We are blessed to meet a lot of unique, successful people, and get to know them very well through the process of designing their homes…”

As an award-winning company, we expect big things out of Kendle Design Collaborative, and we were excited to find out what comes next. Brent told us that they aim to keep raising the bar with the type of projects they are doing, and to look for opportunities to branch out into the top tier of architecture nationwide to compete for design opportunities in unique locations that will stretch their creativity.”

It’s clear to us that, as the owner of a second-time award winner, Brent has learned a lot about growing a successful business and building an online reputation. When we asked what advice he has for business owners who are just starting out, he said:

“You need to find what you’re passionate about. Do what makes you happy and brings you joy, as cliche as that sounds. …Continue to focus on that rather than on what everyone else may think is a path to success.”

Brent ended our conversation by giving a shoutout to his crew, who he says does a great job and makes it possible for Kendle Design Collaborative to do what they do.


Congratulations to Brent and the team at Kendle Design Collaborative for a Top Rated Local award winner for the second year in a row.

“Our experience with Robinette Architects was excellent. Ron is very knowledgeable and had consistently great advice. Robinette Architects designed our home from the very beginning when it was just a patch of dirt. They worked with us through the entire design and construction process, keeping a close eye on all of the details and making adjustments where necessary. He and his firm were very responsive to our requests. Ron was clearly our best advocate; his support was invaluable. He helped us make decisions, ranging from construction materials to colors. The end result is spectacular, just as we had imagined it. Robinette Architects created our family home, and we are delighted with every detail. Ron’s artistic and architectural abilities are outstanding, and this is reflected in the beauty and functionality of the residence. His cheerful demeanor and knowledge made a potentially stressful process very exciting and pleasurable. I cannot recommend Robinette Architects highly enough.” – Timothy M.

Maintaining a Strong Online Reputation by Asking for Feedback

Ron Robinette, the owner of Robinette Architects, Inc., sat down with us for a few minutes so that we could catch up about what his team has been up to over the last year.

Winning a Top Rated Local award once is a sign that a company knows how to build a solid online reputation, but as a second-time award winner, Robinette Architects, Inc. clearly has a lot of insight into also maintaining their online reputation. Ron told us that they are more engaged when it comes to asking for feedback and that they have an extensive portfolio, which goes a long way toward earning clients.

When asked what makes Robinette Architects, Inc. stand out, Ron told us that their five-person team has two licensed architects and said:

“We listen, care and want our clients to be happy. With our experience, we provide great value because we can handle difficult properties. Where another firm might encourage the client to seek another property, we pride ourselves on working with the client on the property they’ve selected. We specialize in customized residential architecture, and we listen to our clients’ needs.”

Every new year comes with new lessons and new achievements, and when we asked what those were for Robinette Architects, Inc., Ron told us that they’ve learned to be educators and advocates for their clients, as well as their community, and that they’re dedicated to continuing to learn the basics of architecture and building in the desert.

Looking Forward with Robinette Architects, Inc.

Being a part of a small business is not always easy, and that’s why we wanted to know why they do what they do at Robinette Architects, Inc. Ron shared with us that the most rewarding part about what they do is when their clients become their friends.

As an award-winning company, we expect big things out of Robinette Architects, Inc., and we were excited to find out what comes next. Ron told us, in the future, he plans to step back and take a more advisory role in the business.

It’s clear to us that, as the owner of a second-time award winner, Ron has learned a lot about growing a successful business and building an online reputation. When we asked what advice he has for business owners who are just starting out, he said:

“Treat your clients like gold; they are the lifeblood of your business.”


Congratulations to Ron and the team at Robinette Architects, Inc. for a Top Rated Local award winner for the second year in a row.

Travis did a great job on the installation and really worked hard to get the job done in time for our party!!” – K.P.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Volterra Architectural Products is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Architectural Products Business

We were excited to learn all about Volterra Architectural Products and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Marketing Director, Beth.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Volterra Architectural Products stand apart from its competitors. Beth told us that they have been around since 2002 and that their customer service and tech support is incomparable.

They are a local manufacturer that ships all over the nation and are helping their community by boosting the local surrounding economy.

Building Success, Online And Off

Volterra Architectural Products has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Beth how they have managed to grow their business and get such great reviews. She said that they are not afraid to request reviews from their satisfied customers.

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Volterra Architectural Products has spread the word about who they are and what they do mostly through word of mouth.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Volterra Architectural Products has managed to. We asked if Beth could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Be authentic, and get good reviews. Stay up on social media and marketing.”


Congratulations to Volterra Architectural Products for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Beth for taking the time to speak with us!

Hawaii’s Top Rated Local® Architects Award Winner: Tropical Architecture Group

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Tropical Architecture Group is a 2019 award winner for architects in Hawaii!

When it comes to resort-style living, there’s no better architecture firm to turn to in Hawaii than Tropical Architecture Group.

Tropical Architecture Group has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 4.95 stars, earning them a wonderful Rating Score™ of 89.50 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five architects in all of Hawaii!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“[It was a] truly wonderful experience to have worked with T.A.G. on our beautiful home in Bali, Indonesia. We were thrilled with the result and grateful for the dedication, professional approach and attention to detail by the entire team. We felt taken care of at every stage of the process. Good job, guys.” – John D.

Not Your Average Architecture Firm

We wanted to learn all about Tropical Architecture Group and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Lani, one of the Principals.

The first question we had for Lani was what is it that sets Tropical Architecture Group apart from their competition in Hawaii. Here’s Lani’s response:

“The first thing is that we specialize in luxury, tropical architecture, so we incorporate lots of indoor-outdoor living with expansive glass sliding doors for panoramic views of nature. Resort-Style Living is our tagline, because when you live in the tropics, your home can be designed with the romantic ambiance of a resort. People love our tropical style with oversized outdoor lounging Bale’ gazebos — a look that we pioneered here in Hawaii. The second thing is that we know what works in tropical climates and what doesn’t, which helps us avoid expensive mistakes. The third thing is that a client can experience their home in 3D augmented reality at the first phase of their conceptual design. That means that they can place their design on their land, walk around it, go inside and see what their views are, as well as get a sense of the size of rooms and how it will feel when it’s built. That’s VERY exciting for people, and it’s exciting to see their reactions when they first see their conceptual design in 3D.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Tropical Architecture Group and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Lani had to say:

“Our mission is to create aesthetically beautiful tropical designs with warm, livable spaces that inspire people’s lives.”

Lani went on to say:

“We utilize low-maintenance, sustainable materials, and encourage the use of solar and other natural energy resources to have as little impact on the environment as possible.”

Building Success by Creating Designs Clients Love

Lani attributes Tropical Architecture Group’s strong online reputation to their commitment to creating designs that their clients love. They become close with their clients during the process, and by the end, they think of their clients as friends. Lani told us that all of their reviews are organic.

When we asked Lani how Tropical Architecture Group has gotten their name out there outside of building a powerful online reputation, he said:

“I believe that the most important way to grow your business is to do a great job for every client and to have open, positive communication with everyone involved. In my opinion, word of mouth is key to growing a business. Having beautiful images and videos of our work get people excited. We also have a marketing company that helps us with search engine optimization.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Tropical Architecture Group has. Here’s Lani’s expert advice for them:

“Have a good website that targets your clients, and make clients happy. People really pay attention to reviews, and your business will grow organically. Being savvy about social media will expedite your growth.”


Congratulations to the team at Tropical Architecture Group for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Lani, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Tropical Architecture Group in Kilauea. Visit their website today!

Before and during construction, LineSync Architecture works closely with its clients to ensure all concerns are addressed and handled appropriately. [They are] always using environmentally friendly options.

Not Your Average Architecture Firm

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Julie, the owner of LineSync Architecture.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Julie about what it is that makes LineSync Architecture unique compared to the many other architects in Vermont. Julie told us that they pride themselves on being sustainable and that they do a lot of value engineering. She added:

“We are very focused on creativity and working with uncommon materials to bring beauty to a project, even if it is a pump house for a ski resort.”

We also asked Julie about the LineSync Architecture mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Julie shared with us that they aim to help people enjoy their space with a combination of art and functionality in a green and sustainable way.

Julie went on to say:

District of Columbia’s Top Rated Local® Architects Award Winner: Kube Architecture

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Kube Architecture is an award winner for architects in 2019.

If you are looking for a modern architecture studio that challenges the norms of daily life and attempts to reinterpret ways of working and living in the built environment, look no further than this award-winning company!

Kube Architecture has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across three different verified sites with an average rating of 4.87 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 94.72 and two 2019 Top Rated Local awards for ranking as one of the top 100 businesses and one of the top three architects in the District of Columbia!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“We have worked with KUBE Architecture on a number of projects in the past five years, and they have always been a great pleasure to work with. It’s not just that they have remarkable designs, but they are very knowable and professional, and they always bring a great deal of positive energy. We are looking forward to the next project.” – M.W.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Kube Architecture is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Architecture Firm

We were excited to learn all about Kube Architecture and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Principal, Richard Loosle-Ortega.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Kube Architecture stand apart from its competitors. Richard told us a bit about their unique style, which he described as “warm modernism.” Richard said that warm modernism means that their work is inspired by and full of color, texture, and materials. Richard said:

“We like to use a lot of color, texture, materials… It’s not just a big picture, but all the way down to the tiny details. How wood meets tile, or how tile meets glass, those details are fun for us to work out.”

Richard went on to tell us about the overall business mission at Kube Architecture, and how they work to improve the lives of their clients. He said:

“We like to work very closely with our clients, and we try to give them what they want for the way they live. It’s not about us imposing ideas on them. They’ve come to us because they like our aesthetic, but in the end, we try and tailor each project to what the client is looking for in terms of how their space will function and how they live in it, which may be unique or different from another client. It’s really a team effort. We’re providing them something, and it’s a big expenditure, so we really want to give them something they are going to enjoy for a long time.”

Building Success, Online And Off

Kube Architecture has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Richard how they have managed to grow their business and get such fantastic reviews. Richard told us that their reviews are organic and are left because of their great work and exceptional customer service. He said:

“We get good reviews because our clients like our work. We don’t ask for those reviews. I don’t think there’s any secret to what we do. We do good work, and they like our work. We have fun with our clients.”

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Kube Architecture has spread the word about who they are and what they do by keeping in touch with their clients, hosting parties and open houses, and by getting publicity from the many awards they’ve won. They also send out a newsletter every few weeks and keep their social media accounts up-to-date with their latest projects.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Kube Architecture has managed to. We asked if Richard could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“We keep our presence out there by being consistent and by posting, but not over posting. Post enough so that, when you have new stuff, people will notice it. If you post too much stuff, it’s going to wash over them. If you post every week or every two weeks, that’s probably better than overdoing it. What you put out should be interesting and should catch their attention. In terms of architecture, you want interesting projects with good photographs. Most of what you post is professional photography, so it catches people’s eye if it’s done well.”


Congratulations to Kube Architecture for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Richard for taking the time to speak with us!

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Architects Award Winner: Rodwin Architecture

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Rodwin Architecture is a 2019 award winner for architects in Colorado!

If you’re looking for an architecture firm that will help to bring your vision to life while respecting your budget and schedule, look no further than Rodwin Architecture in Boulder.

Rodwin Architecture has received dozens of reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.93 stars, earning them an incredible Rating Score™ of 97.30 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five architects in all of Colorado!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“After vetting several companies, we chose Rodwin and could not have been more happy! After deciding to scrap an old house and start from scratch, we knew we needed an architect, and we had a budget. They helped us to stick to it (which can be tough). They were very flexible with meetings (as we have small children) and made house visits when necessary. Their response times to email/calls were always prompt. We had a lot of changes through the process, and they walked us through every step professionally and honestly. We would highly recommend Rodwin Architecture for your next project!” – Jon B.

Not Your Average Architecture Firm

Scott, the owner of Rodwin Architecture, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Rodwin Architecture apart from the many other architecture firms in Colorado. Here’s Scott’s response:

“We are one of the oldest design-build firms in Colorado. Our method makes for a much better experience! We have 28 years of experience building sustained builds. We have developed some of the greenest homes in Colorado. We incorporate our design-build methodology with a superior product at a price point that is expected. When I meet with a client for the first time, I tell them that we are human and will make mistakes, as will everyone. Our favorite clients are those that appreciate Tesla — those who are looking for a home to be extraordinarily beautiful, exquisitely engineered and deeply green!”

Scott went on to say:

“We treat clients as humans instead of a business contract. We are creating a work of art for them. We don’t tell people what they want to hear; we set realistic expectations. Our design-builds are faster, cheaper and higher quality. The most important thing is the single-point responsibility. I have the ability to walk onto a job site and say, ‘Hey fix that or change that.’ This has helped us give the best possible overall product to our clients. Our quality control is second to none.

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Rodwin Architecture. Scott told us that their goal is to strike a balance with attention, simplicity, integrity and compassion.

Building Success With a Responsibility to Their Clients

When we asked Scott about Rodwin Architecture’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“We focus on our responsibility to our clients! We are both architects and builders. We are able to present our clients with a design perspective and help to ensure that it is financially responsible for each client. When we combine these perspectives, it is a very efficient way to meet and exceed the clients’ expectations!”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Rodwin Architecture has spread the word about who they are and what they do by teaching classes and educating the public, as well as fellow contractors.

Clearly, Scott knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Take care of your clients. We get most of our clients through referrals. My goal, by the end of this, is to say, ‘Please put me on your list of references.’”

Scott ended our conversation by expressing his gratitude for his team:

“Thank you to my team; all of you do such amazing work.”


Congratulations to the team at Rodwin Architecture for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Scott, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Rodwin Architecture in Boulder. Visit their website today!

“Pohl Rosa Pohl is a highly talented, forward-looking architectural firm. Clive Pohl is a highly organized, professional, practical, out-of-the-box thinker and a pleasure to work with. I will never hire any other firm!” – T.M.

Not Your Average Architectural Firm

We wanted to know what makes Kentucky’s number one architectural firm so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner and Main Architect, Clive.

The first question we had for Clive was what makes Pohl Rosa Pohl unique compared to their competition in Kentucky. Here’s what he had to say:

“One of the things that has differentiated us is our attention to sustainable issues. People want as much energy efficiency as they can afford. We were the only the progressive architects around for awhile in the area. We were here in service to our clientele before the market got flooded. We are continuing to change as well. We are updating our social media and online presence all of the time. We do modeling in 3D on our digital platforms, and we were the only people doing that for a while.”

Clive went on to tell us that their Helix Garage has been voted among the top three coolest parking garages in the U.S.

We also asked Clive about Pohl Rosa Pohl’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Clive told us:

“We have always been community-focused and have spent time furthering the well-being of the community. For many years, I was out lecturing about sustainability. We are all about improving and informing the community. Money is not our only motivation…”

Building Success by Honoring Clients and Listening to Them

When we asked Clive what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Pohl Rosa Pohl, he attributed it to their commitment to always honoring their clients and listening to them. He added:

“Our goal with every project is to get through what can be a very complicated process and keep a friendship…”

Apart from building the kind of online reputation any business would envy, Pohl Rosa Pohl has spread the word about their service through Houzz and radio ads. They are also in the process of launching a new website.

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Pohl Rosa Pohl has. Here’s Clive’s advice for them:

“If you want to build a good reputation, it might be wise to stay small rather than grow big and have the quality diminish. We emphasize quality instead of quantity.”


Congratulations to the team at Pohl Rosa Pohl for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Clive, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Pohl Rosa Pohl in Lexington. Visit their website today!

“We always say that we are the firm to go to if you have a challenging problem to solve. We are not the place if you just want a box on the back of your house.”

When we asked Rene and Marvin about their business mission, they said:

“We are very interested in solving complex problems and creating interesting architecture that meshes into the neighborhood seamlessly.”


Congratulations to Clawson Architects for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Rene and Marvin for taking the time to speak with us!

Oklahoma’s Top Rated Local® Architects Award Winner: Churches By Daniels

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Churches By Daniels is an award winner for architects in 2019.

If you are in need of a leading church construction company that is ready to help your church at any phase of the design and construction process, look no further than this award-winning company!

Churches By Daniels has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across multiple verified sites with an average rating of 4.63 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 90.30 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as one of the top five architects in Oklahoma!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Rhema Bible Church can’t say enough about Churches by Daniels! They partnered with us from the very beginning and have been by our side through the years as we’ve expanded our campus and added new facilities. Pastors, if you want a construction company with integrity that will catch your vision, call Churches By Daniels. It’s one of the best choices we ever made!” – K.M.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Churches By Daniels is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Architecture Firm

We were excited to learn all about Churches By Daniels and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Marketing Director, Jennifer Wise.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Churches By Daniels stand apart from its competitors. Jennifer told us about the unique way they work, saying:

“Our process is very unique; we are a design build company. We complete projects from conception to completion. We are all Christians, and our owner’s father was a pastor. We pray for the church we are building; we walk pastors through every step of the way, and we show that we truly do care! Yes, we are a for-profit company, but we honestly do not care about the money; we care about furthering the Kingdom of God. We tend to say that the best churches are often the ones we did not build at all. It is much bigger than just building a church; this is a nation-wide ministry.”

She also told us about how they are able to stick to their clients’ budgets:

“There is a massive difference between having a general contractor versus having an architect build your church. We like to learn our clients’ budgets and what design elements they like, then we make our building design fit that budget. By keeping everything in-house, we have a very unique way of controlling the budget.”

We asked about the Churches By Daniels business mission, and Jennifer told us:

“Our mission is helping churches and pastors to reach their community! We want to be a resource nationwide. If we cannot build for you, we want to steer you in the right direction.”

Building Success, Online And Off

Churches By Daniels has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Jennifer how they have managed to grow their business and get their name out. She said that they utilize all platforms of social media to keep up with the people they have worked with. They also make sure to keep up with their SEO (search engine optimization).

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Churches By Daniels has spread the word about who they are and what they do by partnering with large organizations. Churches By Daniels partners with numerous organizations that offer help to pastors in need of advice, guidance, or any resource involved with building. They are partnered with the ARC, NACBA, and WNX.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Churches By Daniels has managed to. We asked if Jennifer could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“My best advice is that you have to grow, keep up with the trends on social media, and keep up with technology. If you don’t grow with it, you will lose a considerable amount of business. There is a huge division between a millennial and a baby boomer. You have to know your clients and what affects them. We live in a visual world where the elders are less consumed by this visualization than the younger generation is. You need to know where the market sits and stay up to speed. Different marketing is always required. You have to have a diverse team that cohesively works together to provide the best possible experience and service.”


Congratulations to Churches By Daniels for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Jennifer for taking the time to speak with us!
