When I sat down to write this about me page I figured, no problem, I know everything there is to know about Leger's Cabinets, should be easy. The problem I did not foresee is, how do you sum up an entire family in a few paragraphs? What do I put in, what do I leave out? Leger's Cabinets has always been the heart and soul of the Leger family. I grew up running around the shop with my brother and cousins. At one point or another, every part of my family has worked for Leger's Cabinets, or had work done by us. We have developed more long term friendships than I can count out of a job that we did for someone. How would I possibly explain a bathroom remodel turning into a full home renovation. How do I describe the process of our Cabinet Shop, starting out a job with updating a kitchen counter, and finishing a year later having acting as the coordinator of a full home renovation. Pulling in subs we trust for Electrical and plumbing, or vetting new ones, for the homeowner. Coordinating deliveries, for all of the different subs, to our shop so that each piece is exactly what the customer described, and no time is lost in the process.
The problem again is, how do I tell a complete stranger, over a computer screen, to leave the process to us and focus on the fun things like granite and backsplash colors, without sounding arrogant, controlling, or just plain crazy? But, for our company, for our family, it's part of the package. Our goal is never to get the job done and move on to the next one, but rather, to take the vision in the customer's mind and make it a part of their home. Then we find all of the ways we can improve upon that vision until it's perfect.
To answer to my original question, there is no way to truly experience the level of trust we develop with our customers without meeting us. You don't have to take my word for it, come see for yourself.
One of dads gifts is the ability to see a finished room given a couple of material selections and a chat with the homeowner. He can see the cabinets on the walls, the paint colors that will flow best, the granite on the counters, the best backsplash for the granite color, even what color the faucets and door pulls should be to finish off the look just right. I've been working at it for a while now, and though I'm close, I have to give the award for best visualizer to him.
