Our Mission

TAG REAL ESTATE PARTNERS LLC is a boutique design / construction management company. And coming in Q2 2017 we will be the only firm to provide online home improvement through a “user-friendly” 3D CAD interface.

With our construction management and design services we provide our clients with personalized design, exceptional customer service, local knowledge and comprehensive project supervision to ensure an unparalleled end product.

Luxury is created not through opulence, but rather in allowing the home to capture the simple things that life has to offer like a bay view window framed within a space, the sound of running water or the natural light that plays off the texture of the wall. It is these elements that create the moments that truly bring each space to life.

Having TAG REAL ESTATE PARTNERS LLC as a single point of contact allows for cohesiveness of every aspect of the project. TAG REAL ESTATE PARTNERS LLC also maintains a high standard of quality control that begins with the trades people and consultants and continues all the way through to the materials and workmanship to allow the client peace of mind in knowing that they are getting the best

TAG REAL ESTATE PARTNERS was founded by Michael L. Armanini who has been developing luxury homes, facilitating land entitlements and providing construction management in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area of Northern California since 1985.

2017 is going to be our standout year with the integration of our 3D CAD online home improvement for homeowners seeking prices for materials, labor, permits and financing…….all at their finger tips and at no cost!
