This could be a trick question to all but a few insiders.
Of these choices, only the Architect is licensed to be your Boy Scout, crossing this unfamiliar street in the dark with so many profiteers hounding you and friends advising you (blind leading the blind). Of these choices, only the Architect is the least profit motivated and duty bound against profit & kickbacks giving advice. This is the profession that counsels your project holistically from site selection, through design folder wishes, into 3D designs, construction/bid sets, construction inspections as per contract (above City/CODE standards). That said, when choosing an architect, choose residential specialist small firm over commercial, hourly rates over $/sf and the firm that will throw at your project fewest draftsmen, engineers-in-training, et al. ... you want professionals only, if possible.
