My name is Vicki Gianacakos. I have worked as a designer for California Closets for over 2 ½ years. I love working for California Closets because every day is a new challenge. You get to meet new people, go into their homes and help them organize and design their spaces. I love my customers because they come from all different backgrounds. I enjoy getting to know them on a personal level as well as a professional level.
I came to work for California Closets after being employed by another closet company in the area. I wanted to work for the leader in the industry and for a company that stood behind their product. Prior to working in this industry, I was a design consultant for a major builder in the Chicagoland area for over 12 years -- and had the highest sales in the design department there for 3 consecutive years. I continue to develop my design expertise by attending industry events and seminars with speakers such as Jeffery Gitomer, Doug Finney and Charles J. Clark III.
- In August 2010, I achieved over 1 million in lifetime sales.
- In 2007, I achieved selling the largest single job.
What My Customers Say About Me
I think my customers observe that I listen to their needs and design based on those needs. I have strong organizational skills and give excellent customer service. I love following up with my customers after our product has been installed to hear how much they love their finished space.
When customers ask my advice for other areas of their home, I often refer them to the following local businesses:
- Chicago Garage and Flooring
- Best of it Interiors
"Work should be challenging and the challenge should be fun!"
