Parker Design | Build | Remodel

Chris Parker
President

FOUNDING PRINCIPLES
“In our industry, core values and principles have become a lost art. Remodelers frequently top the Better Business Bureau’s list of most complaints,” says Chris Parker, president of Parker Design | Build | Remodel. “We believe that being honest and trustworthy is key to every interaction with our customers, trade contractors and suppliers. If we say we will do something, we will do it.”

ONBOARDING FAMILY
“As our business grows, we will continue to evaluate our onboarding processes for family members,” says Parker. “Working from the ground up, in a variety of capacities, is extremely important, as it provides a level of insight into the areas that impact profitability and customer service.”

Fun Fact: “I started college majoring in computer science. The summer after my freshman year, I took a job with a residential builder. I fell in love with construction so much, I decided to stop attending college and learn everything I could about the various construction trades.”

CULTURAL VALUES
“The culture of our business is efficiency and communication,” says Parker. “We have invested in an online platform that allows our clients, our project managers and suppliers to use today’s technology to effectively communicate. They can follow the progress of a project with photo uploads, be notified of deliveries, coordinate meetings or assign items that need to be done.”

LASTING LEGACY
“Good, old-fashioned values are easy to proclaim, but much harder to deliver,” says Parker. “We must always remember that a home is the biggest investment most people make in their lifetimes, and when they trust us to change, remodel or improve it, they are entrusting us with their biggest and most personal investment.”
