"I was the owner/operator of 'Rutt of Chicago' in the Chicago Merchandise Mart when Rachele was 'spotted' by the Rutt National Sales Manager while at internship in North Carolina.  Upon his recommendation, she was hired for the Rutt of Chicago Flagship showroom.  Rachele combines her education in Interior Architecture, natural ability for spatial and design relationships with an extremely high level of AutoCAD ability.  She is the brightest and best kitchen design engineer I have ever worked with during my 38-year career.  Through her work with the world's top lines (Rutt, SieMatic, Christopher Peacock, Poliform, Berloni and La Bastille) she provides clear, perfectly accurate plans accompanied by complete sets of written specifications for manufacture with accuracy and knowledge of construction and jobsite installation.  In my view, working with Rachele often during the last eighteen years, she has no 'integrity' match in the field of kitchen design engineering and stands alone as 'the best'."

"I will never forget how you saved the day on this project, not just with your good energy, but knew more than the so-called contractors.  You are the one person I probably would believe in more than anyone else in this field of design."
