Best Practice: As a former U.S. Army Ranger, Carroll believes in the elite fighting force’s motto: Rangers Lead the Way. And his “forward leaning” attitude is key to his success, earning him a reputation for integrity and honesty throughout the region. With a management philosophy of hands-on involvement and setting the example for others to follow, Carroll lives his leadership style daily for clients and employees, whether he’s digging a trench, ordering supplies, or interacting with homeowners. On a recent job remodeling an 1860s home for a difficult client, Carroll was on site early each day and regularly interacted with the homeowner, completing the job to perfection and gaining the client’s enduring trust and admiration.
