Landing repeat and referral customers is a sign of any company’s success. Building a reputation that has sustained Drury Design’s success over the past 27 years takes expertise, tenacity and longevity. “Being in business for over 25 years, some of our repeat clients are people that have moved during that time, and we are doing second kitchens for the same clients,” President Gail Drury says. “Some are redoing their kitchens we previously remodeled because they are just ready for a change.” 

Drury Design was founded in 1987 by Gail Drury, who is certified as a master kitchen and bath designer (CMKBD) by the National Kitchen and Bath Association. Her husband, Jim, co-owner and studio manager, joined the company in 2001, the same year the company opened its second location, a 7,500-square-foot showroom in downtown Glen Ellyn, Ill. 

Spinnaker Development’s business model has evolved from designing and building high-end home renovations during the height of the recession in 2009 to building and developing multimillion-dollar, turnkey custom homes today. 

The Newport Beach, Calif.-based company is a boutique residential design/build firm that provides architectural, interior design and general contracting services for new construction projects. Its luxury, custom-built homes range in price from $3 million to $20 million, depending on location. “We try to bring the total package as a team,” owner Mike Close says. “We strive to provide the ultimate level of comfort for our clients by streamlining the approach and process of the project. The proper execution of the pre-construction process is critical to an efficient design/build.”
