Our Mission

TAG DEVELOPMENT GROUP LLC / TAG BUILDERS, INC. is a boutique design – construction management and Real Estate investment company.

With our construction management and design services we provide our investors and clients with a 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  or building 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 DEVELOPMENT GROUP LLC / TAG BUILDERS, INC. as a single point of contact allows for cohesiveness of every aspect of the project. TAG DEVELOPMENT GROUP LLC / TAG BUILDERS, INC. 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 our clients and investors the peace of mind in knowing that they are getting “THE BEST OR NOTHING.”

TAG DEVELOPMENT GROUP LLC / TAG BUILDERS, INC. was founded by Michael Luigi Armanini who has been developing luxury homes, facilitating land entitlements, commercial construction and providing construction management in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area of Northern California since 1985.
