In 1994, I began my journey into the window business with a small company based in Scottsdale, Arizona. Although we were small in "stature" we provided Windows and Doors for a decent percentage of the higher-end Luxury Homes in the Scottsdale/ Paradise Valley area. Our area of expertise was the tougher, more challenging projects, which many other suppliers would simply avoid or would over charge to do. As Project Manager for these jobs, it was my responsibility to figure out all the details of the project and then to manage & maintain the client's overall budget. It was an outstanding way to enter this complicated business. I learned the right way from the very start and ended that seven year tenure, as President of the company.
My talent and passion for beautiful windows and doors consistently grew and in 2000, the journey continued with a very large Production Window Manufacturer whose business focus was the Track-Home industry. I accepted their invitation to diversify their business & gain a foothold into the Custom / Luxury market. Together we created a "Luxury Division" that served a luxury market that reached over $5 million in annual sales.
I left that organization in 2009 for the opportunity to develop my own Business. I wanted to do for myself, what I had been doing for others for over 17 years. In 2010, I launched my own company, Architectural Window Products, LLC., where we proudly say “We serve at the pleasure of our Client “. Whether the project is a humble remodel, or a million dollar custom home, we believe that by listening closely to our clients’ needs, we can provide both the quality & service they desire while still maintaining their budget. Our professional experiences along with our creative talents allow outstanding designs that integrate a variety of quality product lines.
We are truly committed to providing the highest attention to detail and we will continue to operate at the highest level of integrity. This is not just my mission statement; it is indeed how we operate and how I have been able to maintain success for the last two decades...my client's desire, is always my focus.
At the end of the day I enjoy looking at the craftsmanship and beauty of each completed project from start to finish as its own wonderful work of art, and I feel fulfilled and proud. The best reward is the joy seen in the clients' eye. We look forward to many years of working together joyfully and successfully!
