Growing up in New York, I spent my teen years working with my Dad, after school, nights and weekends helping him in his Construction Company building residential homes. Periodically, he would take on smaller side jobs of remodeling or repairs, where I was his assistant
I am a retired ARMY Sergeant, having served in numerous locations, to include the Republic of Korea. I currently live in Houston, Texas, and have lived in New York, California, Georgia, Washington State, Indiana, and Missouri!
Upon retiring from the ARMY in 1995, I joined ACE Hardware in San Diego, CA as the Service Manager.I left Ace Hardware in 1999 to join The Home Depot (HD). I worked in numerous departments which included Electrical & Lighting; then I was promoted to Department Manager for the Plumbing Department, Kitchen and Bath Department and Appliances. Later, I also managed the Millworks Department (Doors, Windows & Molding). Occasionally assisting in the Paint Department, as needed.
I moved to Houston Texas to start school at the University of Houston in 2004, studying Architecture, then Construction Management, while I continued to work Full-Time at a Home Depot sister company called EXPO Design Center. Eventually, the EXPO division closed and I transferred back to the HD to begin work as a Kitchen and Bath Designer after completing Kitchen and Bath Design training. I continued work with the Home Depot until I decided to start my own business in 2014, Beau Maison Homes LLC.
I have completed training with Fortune Builder’s, the premier real estate education company in the country. I also regularly attend Real Estate Investor Association (REIA) group meetings, to keep current in the industry.
I have learned a great deal throughout my life about construction, remodeling & repairs, building materials, as well as costs related to the above, and am now well prepared for my current venture!
