Estate Planning 

An estate plan is not just your trust or your will. It is a complete set of tools used to control what will happen to you and your assets when you are no longer able to make those decisions for yourself. A well-designed and maintained set of tools will make the implementation of your wishes much simpler. There are different types of tools available: revocable trusts, powers of attorney, wills, advanced health care directives, etc. There are additional tools that go further to reduce the estate tax due at your death, such as irrevocable trusts and charitable trusts.

  • Revocable Living Truststhe 
  • AB Truststhe surrounding communities great.
  • QTIPs (Qualified Terminable Interest Property) Trusts
  • Disclaimer Trusts
  • QDOTs (Qualified Domestic Trusts)
  • Special Needs Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Generation Skipping Trusts
  • ILITs (Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts)
  • QPRTs (Qualified Personal Residence Trusts)
  • GRITs (Grantor Retained Income Trusts)
  • GRATs (Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts)
  • GRUTs (Grantor Retained Unitrusts)
  • Crummey Trusts
  • IDITs (Intentionally Defective Irrevocable Trusts)


A quality estate plan will meet your needs today, implement tax planning strategies appropriate for your current situation and set the foundation for future revisions as your family and financial situations change over the years. This way, you can be sure that you and your family will be prepared for whatever the future may hold.

Creating a trust-based estate plan is often the best way to start. People in California who own a home often use a revocable trust to avoid going through the probate process. Probate is very costly and takes a minimum of six months from start to finish – if everything goes right. Having the guidance of a lawyer with extensive experience and in-depth understanding of the complexities of these practice areas will definitely work to your advantage.

Our attorneys can help you decide what type of an estate plan is best for you and your family now and in the future. Our goal is to empower you through informed decision making so that your estate plan conveys your wishes precisely.

Our dedicated team works in all aspects of the building process including planning, estimating, value engineering, management, supervision, and safety. Since 1997, BSM’s goal remains to build quality projects that meet or exceed our clients’ expectations.

Upon completion of a project it is important that we have instilled a strong sense of trust and integrity in our clients. Our clients rely on us to represent them in a highly professional manner in all aspects of the construction process including planning, estimating, value engineering, management, supervision and safety.

From after-hour cold case replacements resulting in a seamless store opening the next morning, to full store remodels including full isle reconfigurations, check stand retrofits, Disabled Person compliance and professional refrigeration services, the BSM Construction team is well “seasoned” in the Grocery environment.

RETAIL TENANT IMPROVEMENTS
Retail TI's are a unique breed of construction, as typically these build-outs are performed during retail center operating hours, when the surrounding tenants are actively catering to their clients. Non-disturbance of neighboring tenants and a clean and stealth like storefront is of utmost importance. The BSM Construction team is well aware of the importance of this and while top quality construction is the ultimate objective, a keen sensitivity of the surrounding retail environment, the safety of our crews, subcontractors and the shopping center patrons alike, is always at the FOREFRONT of the BSM Construction operating procedure.

SHOPPING CENTER EXTERIOR RENOVATIONS
Updating the exterior of your shopping Center is proven to attract the most desirable and highest paying tenants. The attractive look and feel of a shopping center makes for a more inviting and pleasurable shopping experience for the patrons of your center, which translates into more sales for your tenants. BSM Construction is an expert in exterior shopping center renovations. Our team has done it all from newly updated facades, siding replacement, parking lot resurfacing, strategic signage enhancements and landscaping improvements. We will work with your Architect, or our design build team can put together a plan that will attract new higher paying tenants to your center, while extending the life and increasing the value of your properties.

OFFICE BUILDING TI'S
Diligent coordination with top notch team players is the key to any successful Office TI. We work in unison with your Building Engineer to assure that all building rules and regulations are understood upfront and adhered to by our employees and subcontractors alike. Weekly progress meetings are held with the Property Manager, Building Engineer and Architect, when appropriate to assure that the project schedule is on track and that the project is being built according to specifications. Assuring that our project is virtually unnoticeable to the surrounding tenants and their patrons is our prime concern and we know that. Our superintendents are well trained to maintain a safe, clean and sound sensitive work environment at all time.

GROUND-UP CONSTRUCTION
The BSM team has built a vast variety of ground-up construction projects. Please allow us the opportunity to provide budget pricing for your next new construction project. Our experienced team will work with you and your Architect to put together a value engineered plan to include your project objectives, while meeting your specific budget constraints.

INDUSTRIAL CONSTRUCTION
Construction is well adept in the industrial construction arena. We know the many pitfalls that can occur and the additional obstacles that are introduced in any industrial construction environment. Ever changing power requirements and code compliance knowledge is where we shine. We are very comfortable in the industrial arena and have a proven track record under our belt to prove it. Please contact us for more information on how we can help you plan your upcoming industrial construction project.
