Vision and Leadership

2014 brought a new vision to Builders Design. Partners Joe Duffus (CEO) and Jon Nash (President) look to take the firm’s iconic status to greater heights. Having both grown up with the company, they lead an exemplary staff of professionals committed to excellence in design, trend forward marketing, and stellar customer service.

Our design leadership is second to none in the industry. Britney Gilley (Design Director, Multi-family Interiors), Jennifer Snowden (Director, Model Design Operations), Erin Karcher, (Director, Luxury Division), Tracee Murphy, (Director, Florida Model Design Operations), Christina Tasho, (Director of Project Management), push the boundaries of design excellence. Together, they bring inspiration, innovation, and creativity, along with a dedication for detailed execution.

It all starts with great design

From balance to scale, our team focuses on every detail of your project.  We believe that good design starts with the fundamentals.  

Yet great design connects people. It draws you into a space and it can inspire. Our credentialed designers have dedicated their professional lives to bringing great design to life.  

BUT A PROJECT'S SUCCESS GOES WAY BEYOND GREAT DESIGN

We are in the business of designing and merchandising interiors that increase new home sales and occupancy rates with an emphasized perceived value. That takes more than great design; it takes an emotional connection.

Our partnership with one of the top trend research companies in the world allows us to understand design and color trends better than anyone else in the industry. We educate our designers on demographics and generations -- what amenities speak to them, where their interests lie, what design elements are relative, what finishes are they aspiring to. Although what we create is art, we are committed to the science behind it.

We focus on the importance of community. Our clients are not just selling a home or leasing an apartment, they are bringing people together. That’s why we identify our clients' potential customers and reinforce their community's assets, whether it is the blue ribbon school, the local farmer’s market, a beloved coffee shop, or the annual fall festival. This isn’t just about selling or renting homes, it’s about a specific lifestyle. And we get that.

WITH THE EXPERTISE OF MANY

We are more than just designers, we are a company that understands the importance of marketing and the role it plays in our clients' drive to move real estate. Our team of lifestyle experts and project managers ensure your project is on target, on time and on budget. With a warehouse staff and installation crew that provides white glove delivery service, we can guarantee quality control throughout the entire process and ensure 100% satisfaction. Our multidisciplinary team of 90+ design and marketing professionals work together seamlessly, providing our clients' prospects with an experience that moves them -- literally.
