This month we sat down with Harry Marks, Residential Estimator, to showcase his work ethic and give those who have yet to meet him a glimpse of his fun-loving attitude. Harry has been with Sigmon over a year and a half and has already brought such a positive impact to our office and all the clients he meets.
Q: What is one of the most rewarding parts of your job?
Harry: Going all the way through the project with the clients, seeing them at the very beginning, getting them to sign, negotiating out the details, and then getting the project started. Basically the project life cycle- “life is like a circle”
Q: What is one thing that most of our customers don’t know about you?
Harry: I’m getting married in November, and my fiancé and I are currently renovating a house that has been in my family for three generations. My grandpa and dad lived there and now I’m going to be living there.
Q: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Harry: Hunting, fishing, whitewater rafting, mustaches
Q: What are three words that describe you?
Harry: Tall, dark, and handsome (jokingly) Dependable, light-hearted, enthusiastic
Q: If you could only drink one beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Harry: Coors Light- the official beer of NASCAR
Q: Who is a memorable client that you have worked with in the past?
Harry: The Moriseys. They would make everyone lunch during the day, talk to you, and ask about your life. They were just really good people.
Q: What is one residential construction project, you see time and time again, that will always be popular?
Harry: Screened in porches and deck additions- because people love being outside.
Q: What was one of your favorite projects to work on?
Harry: I like the big jobs- the full home renovations that bring up a bunch of complications you get to work through, and you get to know the clients well because you’re with them for months.
Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to customers considering remodeling or additions?
Harry: Bring as much information to the table as you can- do your homework, figure out what kind of style you want.
Q: What is one construction ‘trick of the trade’ you have learned over the years?
Harry: Always bring your wood stretcher.
