Republic West Adds to Design-Build Team

If you’re in need of a dwelling shift and a new property is out of the question, why not work with what you’ve got? Recently, Scottsdale-based Republic West, added two new experts to their Design-Build team to better serve those with home improvement on the mind.


“Since we started Republic West back in 1995, we have made it a priority to make sure we can give each and every client the attention they deserve – and in a timely manner,” said Linda Zimmerman, co-owner of Republic West. “Due to the enormous success of our design-build division, we have added two veterans who bring diversity of style and years of experience to our team, creating a Dream Team, if you will.”

With the addition of these new team members, Republic West is now in an even better position to take on high-end, complex construction and home remodeling jobs. A Dream Team of specialists and an Operational Team that the company says is equal to none will help Republic West lead the way in home remodeling and design-build projects in the 21st century.

Rick Ritivoy comes to Republic West with over 26 years of experience in the design-build business. As a CGR (certified graduate remodeler), Rick has completed thousands of projects including new homes, room additions, kitchen and bath remodeling, whole home remodeling including rearranging interior space to create a brand new floor plan within the existing walls. As a CGR, Rick brings the construction experience that clients need and deserve and that Republic West requires of all of its designers. It is difficult to find the combination of skills and experience that Rick brings to the Republic West Scottsdale home remodeling design-build team.

Steve Price is the newest addition to The Republic West Scottsdale home remodeling team, but hardly new to the remodeling industry. Steve was formally a general contractor working on some of the largest remodeling projects for some very high profile clients including Producer Harvey Weinstein, the Disney family and actors Robert Redford and Robin Williams. Celebrities notwithstanding, Steve’s extensive background as a general contractor and designer in remodeling has made him “a firm believer that budget does not dictate quality of design. Once you understand form, proportion and the importance of details, you are able to create something beautiful with even a modest budget.”

He brings his experience and expertise to Republic West where he can concentrate on the design aspect of the project where he excels in bringing clients’ thoughts and dreams to concept, while leaving the operations in the capable hands of the Republic West team.
