Sixty-five years of combined management experience helps build dream homes.

San Felipe Management Services is the result of sixty-five years in managing people and projects for partners Kristy Deegan and Stan Shifflet.

In May of 2005, they launched the San Felipe Management Service. The SFMS team consists of the owner, the architect, the contractor, the legal team, the interior designer, the finishing contractor, and the building inspector.

San Felipe had a need for a professional construction management company to be the eyes, ears, and voice for absentee owners during construction. Many fall in love with the area, and buy a piece of Baja, but then what? This is where San Felipe Management Services comes in. “People hire us for peace of mind,” says Kristy.

Kristy and Stan have developed detailed processes and procedures that bring the team together in two phases: Phase I converts the owners’ dreams into drawings that meet their cost and schedule goals and comply with all developer and government regulations. In Phase II, team members oversee the construction, provide detailed reports and pictures of the progress (via a website), resolve issues and concerns among team members, control payments to the contractor, and ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget. They monitor the payment of social security and withhold final payment to the contractor until the Letter of Liberation is in hand—a worry free experience.

San Felipe Management Service is increasingly involved in managing custom homes, homes for developments, managing commercial projects, and inspecting homes for lending agencies. Kristy and Stan call San Felipe home and they want you to do the same.
