Luxury homebuilder Diamond Custom Homes has announced the promotion of Karen Velasco-Carter to the position of Director of Architectural Services.
In this position, Velasco-Carter serves as an in-house architect, responsible for all architectural design drawings and permitting for the remodeling division. Velasco-Carter has 20 years of industry experience, including tenure as an architectural designer for two prominent local design studios. She has a bachelor’s degree in architecture from San Buenaventura University, is an AIA associate and a certified general contractor. Velasco-Carter joined Diamond Custom Homes in 2015 as cabinet designer and architectural coordinator.
“Karen plays a vital role in the Diamond Custom Homes process, working closely with our clients to articulate their ideas,” said Diamond Custom Homes President Michael Diamond. “We congratulate her on this promotion and welcome her to this new position as our remodeling division continues to experience remarkable growth.”
“Good planning, communication, design and construction teamwork —from start to finish— is necessary to ensure a successful remodeling project,” said Diamond. “One key difference in our remodeling division versus those of our competitors is that we offer both remodeling design services as well as the execution of our designs. Providing these services with the same team enables us to more seamlessly deliver the client’s vision.”
Diamond Custom Homes’ remodeling division offers total home renovations, additions, kitchen and bath renovations, and outdoor living remodels. Once a project is complete, clients may consider Diamond Custom Homes’ estate management division, which offers an array of concierge services including weekly home inspections to identify potential areas of concern, as well as ongoing maintenance and repair. Fully accredited by the National Home Watch Association (NHWA), the estate management team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide peace of mind to homeowners.
“We are committed to providing the highest level of service and personal attention to each project we undertake,” said Diamond. “Thanks to this commitment, we are pleased to work with numerous repeat clients who become more like family with each project we create for them.”
