  4. Review portfolios: Ask to see examples of their work to get an idea of their design style.
  5. Check references: Ask for references from past clients and contact them to get a better understanding of their experience working with the architect.

  7. Make sure they understand and agree to work within your overall construction budget with design and material selections.
  8. Make your decision: After reviewing all the information, select the architect that best meets your needs and budget.
