"During our initial meeting, Brad asked so many questions that we had never even considered as part of the design process. He asked questions relating to how we actually live our lives on a daily basis. Obviously these questions were specific to us and our lifestyle, and I now know the answers had a direct impact on the design. He asked very thorough questions and listened to us completely."
- Dana Buford
"We were novices, since this was the first house we had built, and Brad was so great about listening to our ideas and making it easier for us. The very best thing about Brad is that he would take my ideas and work with it....instead of calling me crazy."
- Laura Solomon
"Brad's strength is his creative ability. We like his mix of creativity and business thinking to truly help shape the projects. As a result, we have increased the amount of business we have done with Shapiro & Company over the last few years. Brad is an integral part of our team."

"You've been great with us and we've loved working with you. I just wanted you to know that I would be happy, at any time, to talk to prospective clients and tell them how happy we were with you and your firm. You can always count on us for a great recommendation -I'm sure this goes without saying, but I just wanted to put it out there. Thanks for everything."
- Dominique Gariepy
"I want to thank you again for your work. I remember when we first sat down together. We spent a great deal of time discussing our thoughts, lifestyle, likes and dislikes . Then at our next meeting that we had within a short period of time, you came back with a sketch and we were amazed how it was such an accurate reflection of what we discussed. We enjoyed working with you and seeing how you made sense of our various ideas and notions. We absolutely love our house and my family very much enjoys using all of the great spaces"
- Dan Umansky
"Todd and I are thrilled with our renovation and give you guys the thumbs up. Thanks to all your team Brad."
- Todd & Adrianne Tillmans
"Jill and I want to make sure you know how happy we are with your work. We are really looking forward to seeing your vision for our home take shape. You captured quite well what we had in mind when we first saw the house. We would highly recommend you to anyone seeking an architect's services."
- Marlon Utech
We hired Brad Shapiro in the summer of 2015 to design our new home in East Memphis. In our first meeting we could tell that Brad has a passion for home design, and a greater passion for pleasing his customers. His secret? Listening. Brad spent time with us, both in his office and in our current home, to gain a better understanding of what we like. He then used that information to design our new home incorporating our functional requirements with aesthetic beauty.
We highly recommend Shapiro & Company if you are considering building a new home or remodeling an existing one.

Brad Shapiro and his team at Shapiro and Co. created a wonderful experience for our family. They were calm and and patient throughout the entire process. They made it so enjoyable we actually missed the process of building after it was over and we had moved in. We will use Shapiro and Co. if we ever build again. We have recommended them to many people who have also used them for their building needs.

We hired Brad Shapiro of Shapiro and Co to design our custom home about 3 years ago. We could not be happier with the result. Working with Brad and his staff was amazing. He is an attentive listener and figured out how to give us everything we wanted. He was also great at pushing back on us when what we were asking for was maybe not the best way to go. Brad also demonstrated flexibility, as things inevitably come up during the house build. He was readily available to meet on site to discuss issues/ changes that arose. This was our first time building a home, and we came to realize that an architect needs to be a great team player, as they need to work closely with the builder and interior designer. Brad exceeded our expectations in this regard. We had an "A+" team with Brad at the helm and if given the option to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing.
Tara Engelberg, Homeowner
Our experience working with Brad was wonderful. From the very beginning, it was obvious to us that Brad found joy in creating beautiful spaces for his clients. He listened to what we needed and asked many questions about how we wanted to live in and use the space. He took our vision and made it so much better than we could have imagined. We started with a colonial built in the 40s that needed major renovations. Brad was able to completely transform the space while staying true to the traditional elements of the original design that we loved so much. We would absolutely use Brad in the future and highly recommend him to others.
