Danielle oversees our design-build services, including architecture and interior design, and how they interrelate to our construction services. She has worked in land use for over 25 years, in both real estate and as a licensed Professional Engineer and permitting specialist.
Working collaboratively with the business development team, Danielle is integrally involved in all new projects at Knickerbocker Group, guiding each client through the appropriate steps to either acquire a new property or consider a renovation or new build on an existing property. She enjoys getting to know clients, understanding their program goals, and working through the due diligence process to make sure the selected property can support their dreams. Once the project is underway, Danielle retains the role of client advocate, overseeing the design-build process to make sure the team is listening to and understands the client’s intent, communicating well, and delivering high-quality service. Danielle is your first phone call if you have concerns or questions along the way.
Danielle and her husband, artist Brad Betts, built their own energy-efficient farmhouse in East Boothbay where they raised their two boys, Ben and Sam, both artists and musicians. In 2016, the Betts family purchased an old dairy farm on 35 acres in Edgecomb, transforming it into Down East Gallery: a creative space for art, music, and film.
