Transparency, Value & Integrity:

That’s our real promise to you.

“Somewhere between the project proposal and completion, all cost and time projections are thrown out the window.
We thought: ‘Why is this acceptable?’ That’s when we decided to start Real View.”

Tired of development projects that are always late and over budget? So are we.

Real View Design and Development is a Chicago-based design and development firm that was founded exclusively to provide clients with an alternative to traditional development firms—a turnkey, transparent solution for all design and development needs, on a flat fee basis.

With extensive experience in every aspect of the design and development process, Real View Design and Development offers a unique experience by providing everything you need to design and develop residential properties all under one roof. We work extensively at the start of each project to ensure that we understand the full extent of the scope in order to provide a realistic projection in regard to time and budget.

“As we progressed in the planning stages, we negotiated with subcontractors to reduce their prices resulting in a $15,000 to $18,000 cost-savings for the client before we even started construction.”
