Long Beach is a huge city with many architects and architecture firms. In fact, when you Google phrases like “Long Beach architect” or “architecture firms in Long Beach,” you get dozens of results. When we first started M. Grisafe Architects, we wondered how we’d ever stand out in the crowd and make a name for ourselves in a city of almost a half a million people. We knew we had something to offer the Long Beach community, but how would people find out about us?
As it turns out, doing great work and delivering exceptional customer service goes a long way toward growing a small business in a big city. We get a lot of referrals from past clients who have been happy with our work and are eager to tell others about their experience with our firm.
In addition, people regularly find us through our company’s website, and especially through our blog. We often get calls from people who tell us, “I read several of your blog posts and you seem like just the type of architecture firm I want for my project.” We do our best to give people a good understanding of the experience they can expect to have with our architecture firm before they even make the first call or send us an email. By reading our blog, they also see things like how we were chosen by the City of Long Beach to help them test their new, more streamlined online plan check system.
We consistently appear on lists of the best architects in Long Beach, and we find ourselves bidding on projects with other top Long Beach architecture firms, many of whom we’re on great terms with. There seems to be plenty of work to go around right now, thanks to a booming economy and high home values. Many of the architecture firms in Long Beach also have their own specialties, which helps clients differentiate among the various architecture firms in Long Beach in order to find the right type of architect for their project.
Our architecture firm tends to attract clients who want to be highly involved in their projects. They want to be part of the design process, giving input along the way, but also have a professional they can rely on to be their advocate for things like communicating with their general contractor and dealing with the various city departments. Our clients tend to be thoughtful, interesting, and opinionated—and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
At M. Grisafe Architects, we love to work with clients who are highly invested in their projects. The finished project tends to be much better and the client tends to be more satisfied when they are involved throughout the process. In addition, we get to know unique and interesting people and help them figure out how to create a space that works for them—whether it’s their home or place of business.
