“Working on Old Town projects is like being the conductor of an orchestra,” says Olson, who had to manage dozens of different teams on a lot with less than 25 feet of frontage and limited curb space. “I’m one of the guys known for being an expert in Old Town projects. In Old Town, there’s not a point in the process when we’re not trouble-shooting; the level of difficulty is generally an 11 on a scale of one to ten.”

Olson’s experience with navigating dozens of moving parts, while attending to and communicating his clients’ needs, is part of what makes his other work in new-home builds incredibly successful. In one home in Promontory, he worked with the clients and their architects from the beginning to ensure that they could seamlessly navigate the entire building process. “I like to come in early and make it a team project. On the Promontory home, I got to work with the clients from the start, so I was able to answer questions, educate the clients on costs, and help them design a project that would be on budget and bring their vision to fruition.”
