Also, attention given to the client. If you are waiting weeks for a turnaround in emails, flog them off. We had this, and continuous apologies, realised his priorities weren't us, and sometimes waited weeks, into months for a response or even showing excitement to begin. Even recommended a shonky builder which he had no in depth knowledge of. Would never recommend him, and far from a professional service. Don't bother complaining to the Architectural society in your state as they didn't even answer the complaint sent to them.

How do you know which category an architect fits in to ? Reputation is really the key to deciding once you have established that the person or the team is a good fit.

I have encountered the Bad Architect and lived to hugely regret the amount of faith and friendship my husband (of the time) and I put into him. He ticks 4 of the 4 boxes perfectly, and created such a monument of grandiosity at the end of the 1980s that not only was the house not a home due to its insane scale but it bankrupt us. Beware of smooth talkers who provide little detail!
