Acting in the advisory capacity of consigliera (instead of a personal assistant), I offer comprehensive consulting on home and lifestyle matters, serving as a discreet confidant and unbiased liaison. My 13 years of practical experience managing multiple estates, designing/overseeing the construction of a luxury home and acting as an emissary on behalf of my family’s interests gives me a unique appreciation of the complexities of a high-performance lifestyle, and my name recognition allows me to provide my clientele with complete confidentiality. You can rely on my professionalism, trust my integrity and depend upon my expertise.
Having the right support is critical to effectively managing transition and change. I provide a high-touch structure for this process through personal development coaching tailored to your specific needs. My private mentoring and coaching services address concerns related to adjusting to a new lifestyle, managing family members, mastering your mind/emotions/time, overcoming limiting beliefs, creating a balanced and grounded life and more.
Custom-built homes are a collaborative art form, and your business deserves to be represented in a way that conveys your value and earns you trust and referrals. Miscommunication and a lack of oversight caused by gaps between the roles of the builder and the real estate agent result in tension between builders and buyers and increased on-site stress. At best, your attention is divided. At worst, unsatisfied clients cost you a net loss of time and money and possibly future referrals. I shape the relationships, so you can build homes and multiply your business.
As a consultant for your build team working as a dedicated client liaison, I work side by side with you to eliminate communication gaps. I manage client expectations, collaborate with you on the client’s wishes, coordinate meetings and showroom visits and provide a cohesive experience for your clients throughout the construction process. Designed to give you room to work with freedom and flexibility, this high-touch, high-value service provides your clients with a seamless, positive experience.
• I manage the client’s expectations and communicate the buyer’s interest.
• I coordinate and collaborate with multiple professionals on behalf of the client’s vision.
• I establish and maintain a consistent flow of information and communication to the client on your behalf.
• I provide timely answers to questions and provide solutions to issues as they arise.
• I am a voice of experience to help clients navigate choices and tasks.
• I follow up to ensure that execution is on budget and consistent with the client’s vision.
• I help clients understand construction delays and deadlines.
• I update clients on their budget vs. the actual cost.
• I walk clients through the project on a pre-determined schedule.
• I follow up after move-in.*The following elite resource is available to retain as a stand-alone service whether or not I represent you in a real estate transaction.
Building a dream home on a luxury scale involves extensive planning, coordination and follow-through. On paper, your plan may be perfect, but the reality of the process is often endless questions, delays and unforeseen circumstances. The probability of miscommunication increases with each new vendor and contractor, and budget issues hover even on well-supervised sites. Adding a long-distance element to the mix only compounds these factors.
For clients with demanding professional and personal commitments seeking to manage their time effectively, I offer a custom solution that ensures your vision becomes a reality.
As a Homeowner’s Representative, I act as a professional consultant to oversee the entire process of high-end construction projects. From meeting with builders, architects, interior designers and other contractors on your behalf to resolving conflicts and coordinating details based on your preferences and interests, I provide a clear, authoritative presence on-site and ensure the seamless organization of your project. This high-value service includes progress monitoring, milestone tracking and team coordination.
• Your interests are protected at all times. I take the time to fully understand your vision and act as an extension of you.
• Your risks are mitigated. I am your eyes and ears on the ground to monitor the quality of work, maintain boundaries around your timeline and budget and resolve potential issues before they grow into major concerns.
• You save time and money and enjoy an increased work/life balance.
• Your communication is enhanced. I serve as a liaison and single point of contact, which ensures an open and efficient line of communication between you and your project team.
• Your decisions are conscious and purposeful. I help explain complex issues and filter trivial questions, freeing you to focus on significant decisions for maximum impact.*The following elite resource is available to retain as a stand-alone service whether or not I represent you in a real estate transaction.

The construction industry has many sharp and rough edges and many barriers, but having DeShawn on your team smooths out rough edges and break-down barriers. We recently closed on three very desirable lots that had multiple interested buyers. We dealt with 3 different sellers, in 3 different areas, with 3 vastly different personalities. Had I missed a date or an email I would have more than likely lost out. I am a very busy person, so I am not great at multitasking. She brought it all together and made it all seem simple.

I am fortunate to have her on my team.”– Al Waters, Developer/Builder, SCAD Company

DeShawn's niche focus delivered a true boutique experience.”-Ooshie Oldham
