My name is Roy Krantz. In 2001 several friends convinced me to help them with their renovation projects.
They had seen the results of my own projects... a challenging 600 sq' Back Bay apartment and a four-story row house in Boston's South End were the first back in the '80s. In 1998 my wife and I discovered a 6200 sq.' Greek Revival on a large parcel on Fort Hill. We decided to move to the country. Off to Roxbury.
It was here I discovered how much I love focusing on how people use space. I started helping those friends of mine.
In 2001 I formalized my interest in renovation into krantzform. Over the years I have assembled a great team of contractors, architects and consultants that I call on when clients don't have their own team in place.
Please take some time looking through the photo albums here on this site to get an idea of what I do.
Check out my interview, How to Design the Kitchen of Your Dreams on Mass Realty, one of the top sites for Massachusetts real estate. Mass Realty also services New York real estate and Rhode Island real estate.
A large part of what we do is helping clients define their goals and choose the team to get the job done. Through the years we have worked with many wonderful people... and we're always willing to expand our circle.
We'd very much enjoy working with your designer cousin. Or the plumber who happens to live next door. We'll even help you do it yourself if you're up to it. That's how we meet new contractors... and that helps us find the right contractors for our next client.
We do have our favorites. On the design side we work with Tess Leeds for the finishing touches on your new space. Visit Tess Leeds Redesign.
And if your vision is a large one, we'll introduce you to one of our favorite architects, Eben Kunz at Kunz Associates or Jay Mason of Architectural Consulting Services.
krantzform has long-term working relationships with many general contractors and trade professionals, from plumbers and electricians to flooring and roofing experts. Two of my favorites are Jay Fishlin at Fishlin Construction and Ken Chan at Chan Construction.
If you need to find the right space to create your vision, our good Realtor friend William Brokhof at The Boston Home Team would be a great choice to help.
With krantzform managing your project, the odds are high that your renovation project will come in on time and on budget.
