How has ProSource Wholesale helped your clients?

They’re valued partners… very knowledgeable. They also have a great relationship with their vendors and can help with pricing.

What’s the most valuable benefit of being a ProSource Wholesale member?

Their great relationship with suppliers and reps, as well as the vast number of products they carry.

How has myProSource.com helped your business, or how do you envision it helping your business?

Haven’t used it much, but it does make it easy to find products and they have good pictures of their own products which you can’t find anywhere else.

What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?

I enjoy completing a design vision for the homeowner and seeing the project come to life.

What are the greatest challenges you face in your work?

Trying to keep the homeowner on budget is always a challenge. Plus, product availability has been a major issue during the pandemic.

What trends are you seeing with regard to home design and remodeling?

People have busy lives so they’re looking for functional products that are very low-maintenance, like waterproof luxury vinyl flooring.

Describe a recent project you’re particularly proud of. What made it so satisfying?

We were doing a rehab, but the client couldn’t exactly picture what they wanted. They decided to give me free rein to come up with the design and were very happy with the results.

What’s one piece of advice you would advocate to clients (homeowners) before they begin a project?

Do what you want — don’t be scared to go bold.

What’s your dream project?

Every project is my dream project because they encompass so many styles that each one is unique.
