“How often do you end up just loving your architect?! Too often the more mundane challenges of a project overwhelm the opportunities for creativity. My house seemed to be the perfect example of just that: budget, deadline – a complicated and precarious site on the leading edge of the Malibu bluffs…not to mention the arduous City “requirements” that had to be negotiated and overcome.
Jim Eserts came to me through one of my best friends who said, “He is the best I have ever worked with.” Well, that was good enough for me, and his assessment ended up to be true in my case as well.
Jim’s eye for contemporary architecture, his impeccable taste, and his way with other people was inspiring. He worked with me, the general contractor, and the decorator in a graceful and collaborative way that allowed everyone to contribute and feel like a part of the project.
I think that Jim is simply the best and encourage others to give him their trust.”

“Jim and his experienced team transformed a very challenging vacant lot into our dream home. His vision and tenacity helped us move through the often tenuous process of building a home in Malibu with an air of calm. Jim Eserts and his team participated in every aspect of the project’s development: from planning and design to permitting and construction. No detail was ignored and his team perfectly balanced the elegant architectural aesthetics with our living needs.”

“I have no idea what we would have done without the brilliant architectural involvement of Jim Eserts during our many Malibu projects.”
In conjunction with Jim and our general contractor, we have completed 7 homes in Malibu: 5 beachfront and 2 estate projects. Jim is an exceptionally talented architect, and, as a result, is never “married” to a solution. He always listens patiently and attentively to each client’s input. It is this partnership of ideas that results in a smooth running project and a stunning finished product.
Pictures may tell a thousand words and Jim’s project photos speak volumes, however, once they are put aside and the initial client meetings begin, it is the man that will impress you the most. Jim Eserts will always be our “go to” guy for all our future projects.”

“It’s difficult to express in brief the vast advantages of having Jim Eserts at the helm of one’s architectural project. Having worked with him now for nearly 20 years, he remains an egoless counterpart – always looking to the greater good of the project, while keeping in mind the ultimate goals of the budget and design. His personal skill with clients are both impeccable and supportive – never pushy – and his ability to pursue Building Departments and other regulatory and entitlement agencies to achieve his desired result is nothing short of amazing. I consider Jim my dear friend as well as an admired associate. I would consider no one else for my architect.”

“To find an architect that can perfectly blend a designer’s vision with the technical expertise required to satisfy a sophisticated client is not always easy. Jim does this so flawlessly that we’ve asked him to work with us on projects in New York and Las Vegas, as well as on our projects in the Los Angeles area.”

“I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Jim Eserts on several high-end luxury penthouse projects in Beverly Hills. Jim has been more than the ideal Architect, striving to exceed expectation in design excellence while maintaining the utmost quality of construction detail. The clear and constant communication between Architect & General Contractor added to the success of the projects and helped build a relationship that will last for many years to come. We are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to work with Jim Eserts again in the future.”

“I first met Jim Eserts a year before I decided to completely renovate my Hollywood Hills home. I provided him with my basic wants and needs and then let him “have at it”. During the design phase, he would often say to “trust him” when making important design decisions, and I found his ideas to be fresh as well as reasonable. The design he produced was amazing. Jim also worked equally well with the general contractor and the City inspectors. For a lawyer who is accustomed to controlling all aspects of my endeavors, I chose to trust Jim and he did not disappoint. Since that time, I have consistently consulted him on other real estate projects and have recommended him to my associates & friends.”

“Dear Jim… We were reflecting on the assistance and guidance you gave us, and wanted you to know how we feel. You helped us in many ways to make our project a success. You displayed familiarity and competence in terms of the complex and cumbersome government regulatory process as well as the ability to within different stylistic architectural approaches. However, what we valued most was your personal attention, availability and responsiveness, sound judgment, and excellent taste.”
