They are a team. He is the builder. She is the realtor/interior designer. They are Joesph Trimarco and Olga Baram. Their professional merging of talent produced a successful and busy operation going strong for five years now. “We’re all about keeping costs down,” they both told me. They do both renovations and build dream houses “from conception to completion,” Baram says, all without the stress of unavailable contractors, endless trips to look at kitchens and appliances, room layouts, etc.
All shopping can be done online, and both Trimarco and Baram are there to guide you every step of the way. “We are hands on. We take it personally. We understand when you build a home, it is an individual thing,” Baram says. Best of all, “we are easy to reach, that is what sets up apart,” Trimarco says. That alone could be the draw. But there’s more. Advanced Builders (AB) will even find you a property or land if you don’t know where to look or what exactly you want. Or maybe you are tired of your present home and need to renovate and shake things up a little. “People outgrow their homes, we can redesign or find them another,” says Baram. They have a lot of experience and very satisfied customers. Advanced Builders has done waterfront homes in Southampton and Water Mill. On the North Fork, The Shady Lady Inn, a landmark historic building, and Townsend Inn are AB projects. They are Energy Star certified, which means houses are insulated better to keep monthly utility bills down. Baram is a Certified Green realtor.
It all starts with a five or six page questionnaire. Based on your information, Baram and Trimarco will know what you want in your house. Your vision. They make it happen. “We iron out every last detail. We are accommodating,” they speak this last part in unison. Are you ready to hire this team or what?! The team expands as the vision becomes real. Architect, designer, builder. All on the same page. Be it a single home, big or small, or multiple houses. They do it all for you. The surveys, the permits, the Health Department, the variances.
“We make it as painless as possible,” they say. There are renderings of your dream house or renovation in 3-D, “so people can visualize.” There is no rush. Their customers have plenty of time to select appliances and décor ahead of time for prompt delivery. This next part you are going to love. When their office is closed, you can reach Baram on her cellphone. All calls are forwarded to her. No one is left hanging at a crucial moment or when a new thought about their dream house or project comes up. Baram and Trimarco both told me “business is good.” They are both expecting a “busier season than last.”
