About Michael Mok:

I founded this blog because my friends and family have been asking me for advice on design, contractors and home product (faucets, appliances, tiles, etc.). They want to learn from me on how to save time and money while getting the result they want.

I am the founder of Geonoma, a real estate development company. For the last nine years, I was the Vice President of a kitchen and bath remodeling company where I managed both the design and the construction team. I learned to understand people’s concerns from working with homeowners, interior designers and general contractors. During that time, I also served on the Board of Directors of the Silicon Valley Chapter of the National Association of Remodeling Industries (NARI).

How to be a Successful Customer for your Remodel?

How can a customer be a great customer? Here is a quick tip.

Know what you want. Exactly what you want. Educate yourself about your own person design choices and what you like.

Hire someone you trust. One of the problems is a lack of trust and poor communication from the homeowner to the GC and vice versa.
