Several years ago Jared worked for the architect who designed our house.  Jared was an integral and invaluable part of the design "team" and, ultimately, indispensable during the construction phase.

The design and construction process can be stressful, but clients of Jared's will find him to be a good-natured guide with a sense of humor.  He is thoughtful and conscientious but, more importantly, responds well to problems (and disasters) in an even-tempered manner... all essential in the design/construction process.  He was unfailingly gracious when we needed to make significant changes to the plan that we felt were necessary.

Jared went out of his way to research options for us for everything from fireplaces and plumbing fixtures to windows and siding.  He accompanied us to two window manufacturers' showrooms to help with questions and get us started.  Later, he had suggestions on brands and styles of plumbing fixtures, as well as advice on what to consider when selecting a daunting array of other essential products for our house.

In short, it would have been an indescribably difficult process without Jared on our team.

Katie and the team at Hoke Ley are fantastic.

We hired (Hoke Ley) to help with interior design decisions related to renovating a kitchen, bathroom, and adding new furniture and light fixtures throughout the home. We both brought our ideas to the table and ended up with solid final decisions that incorporated some of my ideas and some of theirs. (Katie) was able to point out important pieces that I would have never thought of on my own. I'd highly recommend working with Hoke Ley.

I have had the great fortune to work the Hoke-Ley Architects for the last 8 years on a variety of projects.

I have had the great fortune to work the Hoke-Ley Architects for the last 8 years on a variety of projects. Everything from outdoor kitchens to complete estate remodels and remote spec development projects. Aside from their natural talent at their craft (both interior design and architecture), they are professional, creative, thoughtful, engaging, and responsive. We often work remotely from each other (and the project), but you would never know it, they work with me like my office is right down the hall. Their sense of integrity and trust is rare in this industry which makes it all the more pleasurable to collaborate with Katie, Jared, Roy and staff.

There was no arrogance or talking over me like I've experienced with other designers - just pro-active, degistible guidance that resulted in our dream house.

I'm a numbers person that appreciates quality design but struggles to articulate what's in my head. That's why I could not be more happy with Hoke Ley - not only did they respect our budget (i.e., the numbers side of my brain) but they were able to take our thoughts and convert them into reality.

I was very impressed with the professionalism of all staff and the principals in this firm, who provided prompt and detailed feedback and helpful insights.

I had the good fortune to work with the firm of Hoke Ley during 2019-2020 on a large scale rebuild of my residence. The firm came in at my request to improve a design for a large residence in Manhasset, NY...I was so happy with their hands on approach and detailed comments to improve the design provided by my local architect, I hired them to continue working on the project in conjunction with my local team as well as to interact with the architecture review board in my town...I was also very involved with the design details and they handled all of my input with care and concern and patience. No question was left unanswered and they did not hesitate to accommodate my making very specific requests such as researching how to obtain phantom screens in my screened in porch.

I would not hesitate to hire Hoke Ley for any project and I was very happy with every aspect of their services and work product.
