As one client recently wrote, "Where else can you coordinate a project manager, designer, builder, architect, organizer, home stager, contractors, and personal assistant with one-stop shopping?  When you can't be in 5 places at once, you need the Home-Build Concierge." Your Home-Build Concierge is here. Schedule your meeting today.

Rami Dalal
 
Founder and President
Chief Concierge
 

Starting with his very first home, when he was in his mid-twenties, Rami Dalal learned quickly that when you build a new home, you should build it for your specific needs and decorate it with your sense of style. When the time came to sell that house, Rami realized that a well-built, unique house with well thought-out decor commands a much higher price than the "market price". That's when his passion for creating beautiful homes started. Since then, Rami’s work in custom homes has also raised the bar for communities throughout the nation’s capital, consistently resulting in record-setting increases in community home values.

 

His success and love of managing custom home projects and renovations could no longer be contained and fulfilled with personal home projects. When his friends and family would question his very frequent moves, he explained that when you're good at what you love to do, it is not stressful -- it is fun. He is excited to now share that skill and passion with his clients through his innovative Home-Build Concierge services. 

 

Rami Dalal’s home designs and residential projects have won awards and recognition around the United States, mostly in the Washington, DC area as well as South Florida, where he won the prestigious City of Fort Lauderdale Community Appearance Award for his residential design work.  The Community Appearance Board Award was presented each year to encourage aesthetic awareness and to acknowledge individuals and organizations who are working to enhance, improve and beautify the Fort Lauderdale community.


Rami's network and his personal Marketing and Web Strategy and Consulting leadership at Fortune 100 companies for over 25 years also uniquely positions Home-Build Concierge's Web Services as a solution for your web and marketing needs. 

 

Though his professional roots are firmly planted in consumer and business marketing of major brands like MCI, 1-800 MUSIC NOW, AOL, Booz Allen Hamilton, and Freddie Mac to name a few, Rami's real estate project management, design and marketing expertise is equally dynamic and impressive.

 

As founder and Chief Concierge of Home-Build Concierge, Rami is excited to share his success and love of the custom home process with his clients.

Chris Handy


Chris Handy Associate Broker, GRI Washington, DC Metro Chris Handy for Home-Build Concierge A native of Montgomery County, Maryland, Chris spent much of his youth in the Gaithersburg, Darnestown, North Potomac area. After studying pre-law at the University Of Maryland, Chris and a partner began an internet based marketing company in 1999. In 2001, after selling his marketing company, Chris joined the Bethesda Chevy Chase office of Long & Foster Real Estate Inc. as a Realtor. Chris wanted to put his knowledge of marketing and business to good use in the Real Estate market. Chris' long hours, hard work and innovative marketing approach quickly paid off. Within just three years Chris Handy was the Top Producing agent of that office. In 2004, Chris was offered an opportunity to join the newly formed Long and Foster Fallsgrove sales office in Rockville as an associate broker. During his time with the Fallsgrove office, Chris formed the Chris Handy Group real estate team. Chris was the Top Producing agent in both number of homes sold and dollar volume of homes sold, from the day the Rockville office opened, until his departure in late 2009. Continuing to think outside the traditional Real Estate business model in mid-2009 Chris was inspired to join the RE/MAX REALTY GROUP and open an office near his home in Darnestown, Maryland. Chris and his team were one of only three RE/MAX teams in the nation to be awarded with an office location for their own private use. Chris has also become a trusted resource for some large commercial institutions. Banks, developers and some of Montgomery county's most well-known new home builders have relied on Chris to deliver the same spectacular results to them that he does to his private clientele. Chris is proud to say these large clients have placed their trust in him and his team, however the focus of Chris' business remains on helping private buyers and sellers successfully navigate their real estate transactions. After almost 15 years of success specializing in selling homes in Rockville, North Potomac, Darnestown and Gaithersburg Maryland, Chris continues to work every day to bring the highest level of service and the best results to his clientele.
