He obtained his adjusters license in 1998 and worked as a claims adjuster for two years. While adjusting property claims, it became very obvious to him that people were in need of better service from their contractors. He observed substandard repairs and frustrated customers without repercussion. In 2000 he re-entered the Construction / General Contracting field and clearly shows his passion by making sure his clients are taken care of daily.
