What our clients are saying



Although I was out of the country for a couple of months during the project, Brent did an excellent job of keeping me informed and provided videos with commentary (via Marco Polo) as the work progressed. Brent’s wife, Michelle, also did an excellent job as a project manager on the project and she too kept me informed throughout the remodel. I really felt I could trust the Potters throughout the job.”

– David R., Ormewood Park


“Brent & Michelle make home remodeling look easy. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the work that was done to our house. It looks incredible! And although I’ve heard a lot of contractor horror stories, working with the Potters was a dream. They kept the lines of communication open throughout the process and even in the middle of a pandemic & supply line issues they stuck to the timeline. I highly recommend considering Potter Design Build if you’re planning to undertake a major project on your house!”

– Joel L., Ormewood Park


“Brent is fantastic. He listens and really thinks through the best use of the space in harmony with our functionality and aesthetic desires, while providing modern and creative innovations and space usage. Before our home was tired, old and did not suit our family of four well. And entertaining was problematic. We now have a great entertaining flow, a gorgeous space, and a home we adore and are proud to show off.” 

– April S., Atlanta


“This renovation was a big project and Brent did a first-class job. He really understood what we wanted and how to incorporate the 1937 details into a modern renovation. People have told me they can’t tell where the original house stops and addition begins. The house is now twice the size and we love how it is open, full of light and has a great flow.”

– M.S.T., Decatur


“We had a vision to fit a two story carriage house in our steeply sloped backyard, no simple challenge. Brent listened carefully to our needs and created a beautiful, open flow architectural layout that met all the parameters for The City of Atlanta and Inman Park Historical Area within our total construction budget. I am a raving fan of his architectural design. His work was ahead of schedule and within budget. He executed closely and patiently with us through the construction phase. We recently have occupancy and our renters all rave about the design as well as the tree house feel of the home. It is not just about brick and mortar for Brent. He has savvy creative skills and cares about his clients.”

– Gary C., Inman Park


“Brent and Michelle Potter of Potter Design Build are the best design build/general contractors I have ever met. They are passionate people full of integrity. Our house in Poncey Highlands was completed by them and we love it. My wife and I renovated our entire house, new kitchen, bathrooms and master. Brent worked with us in design/architecture of the house first. Conceptually he really helped us make key decisions on what we wanted. Everything turned out great. He did a great job with the scheduling and meeting budget. I would highly recommend using this firm.”

-Jonathan H., Poncey-Highland


“Potter Design Build has my absolute highest recommendation! I hired them to renovate my entire home, which was a shell when I bought it last year (December 2017). Brent Potter did everything from the design to the construction, and covered everything in between. He managed patiently to explain his recommendations while still incorporating my wishes into the design. He also found an incredible historic tax program that will help me tremendously in the long run, and was willing to work with historic experts to conform design elements and materials with the requirements to preserve the character of my home and save me money.

The business manager, Michelle, is always responsive, highly organized, and a great liaison between loan officers and trades. Both she and Brent did an amazing job of interfacing between subcontractors and keeping clear communication with me about additional costs or changes in timeline. I trust them both completely, because they have proven themselves over the past year to be true professionals, diligent with work, excellent in judgment, patient with me, and somehow managing to pay attention to detail in the midst of bigger picture planning. I recommend them wholeheartedly!”

-Joanna J., West End


“We had a great experience working with Potter Design Build. Brent listened really well to our needs and wants, and worked creatively with us to imagine how the space in our home could be better utilized. His designs are beautiful, and we absolutely love our new kitchen. Brent was very communicative throughout the whole process. In any big house project there are going to be bumps in the road that cause delays or new decisions, but we were never left wondering what to do or what was going on. We wholeheartedly recommend Potter Design Build!”

-Jason D., Mechanicsville


“Brent is fantastic! We absolutely love our kitchen and new bathroom, and we love that our house is now level. Any time we had questions, he was patient, thoughtful, and thorough with his ideas, suggestions, and responses. His method of construction and in general, were always deliberate and methodical, which as a designer myself, I appreciated. Leveling our house was a huge task, and I am extremely assured that because of Brent’s persistent research, we chose the right solution. Additionally, Brent’s attention to details was also appreciated to make sure we weren’t left with a design that felt partially completed. We’re grateful and happy on a daily basis for the beautiful space we get to live in thanks to Potter Design Build.”

-Tiffany C., Southwest Atlanta


“Brent and Michelle were so easy to work with! We worked with them to draft up some plans for a detached garage we are building. They met all timelines and were really good at keeping us in the loop at all times. They made the process a breeze for us attending the permit meetings and drafting the permit applications. We really would have been lost without them. We definitely recommend them to anyone needing an architect for their future project!”

-Ashley B., Adair Park


“Thank you for the million dollar idea! Love your design; I am very grateful to have your team on my project. Great communication and easy to work with throughout.”

-Fatou C., Westwood Terrace


“Brent recently helped us with drawings/plans for our major kitchen/living/dining room renovation. We could not be any happier with how our project turned out! Brent is quick and efficient, and he and Michelle are great with their communication. Brent’s experience and knowledge helped us narrow down what we were trying to accomplish; taking us from concept to functional and practical reality. It also helps that they are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.”

-Amanda H., Atlanta
