Hi, my name is David Esteve and I am a Spanish Surveyor and Building Engineer. I completed my four years degree at the Polytechnic University of Valencia and also completed my final Project degree at the University of Applied Sciences in Oldenburg.

HOUSE RENOVATION MANAGEMENT
Do you have to contract my services as a House Renovation Manager after you hire my services as a Survey Reporter?: NO. They are two completely different services from each other.
My Survey Report services, are totally independent, and they do not necessarily have to be linked to the House Renovation ones.
Since my beginnings as a Property Surveyor, there have been many Surveys Reports that I have carried out. During all this time, the truth is, that many of my clients asked me to help them by repairing and fixing all the damages that their house needed, before they moved in, and some homebuyers went forward by asking me to manage their House Renovation process. So this is why, I really considered a good idea by expanding my services and offering a House Renovation Project Management Service, when my clients really need them.
This is why “Valencia Surveyor” also offers as a Studio, the possibility of hiring a qualified and transparent House Renovation Project Managements Service. With more than ten years of experience offering these services, I have been able to specialize in what are the main needs and concerns of many of my clients coming from other countries. I am very glad to say at this stage, that they have finally been more than satisfied, with all those improvements that they were asking for, by creating all together a modern designer life experience.
Valencia Surveyor Studio, offers a wide range of samples of modern house renovations, some of them shown below. We can offer you the multiple choices, regarding the different materials, layouts, and different budgets. We basically listen to our clients, providing them with different proposals, according their needs and pockets.
I hope you enjoy having a look at some of our projects below, as much as we did by creating them.
