 From Craigslist to Full-Service Design: 

I opened my remodeling business in the recession and my first job was answering a Craigslist ad to fix a fence. I made $600. Now I’m doing six-figure jobs for clients that feel like family. A great example is a years-loyal client, a surgeon whose house we’ve transformed—from a driveway to retaining walls, covered patio, an outdoor kitchen, audio, lighting, a batting cage, anything and everything.

When one of our team members was injured in a fluke accident, I called in a favor and he stepped up in our time of need. He looked over his case, sent notes, and helped make sure my team member was setup with a proper team of surgeons to get him on the road to recovery. He helped save our lives. Meanwhile, his wife is making dinners for the families involved. We take pride in client friendships like that.
