Jason Qunell, Design Consultant
Jason, the sales representative was very professional. He had great ideas to enhance my storage and the look of the storage. The installers were equally professional and timely. I believe their names were Bobby and Stuart. The entire experience and product is outstanding.
Jason was great. The designs are great. Actually everybody was great. Working with them was great. Everything went smoothly and professionally, and I really enjoyed that Jason came back out to do an inspection afterward. I will for sure be calling Jason back to come and do some more design work through my house.
I was VERY happy with the end product. Can you send me your supervisor's name and address (and the supervisor for the installers - if it is different from you)? I would like to send letters of appreciation/recommendation for our experiences with you and the installers we had today (Tom, Jeff & Kevin). Thanks again for all your help!
I wanted to let you know how happy I've been with the closets you designed. I've been bragging to all my friends!
I can't believe the difference. Not only are our coats, clothes and accessories completely organized - my mind is a lot more organized. It's wonderful getting rid of all that clutter. I love my California Closets. Thank you for making it possible. -Sheri P
It was the best experience ever. The visuals and Jason, the designer, was great. I didn't feel rushed. It felt like a very personable experience. The service of when it was delivered was perfect and they showed up when they were supposed to. Jason is an asset to your company. THANK YOU.
We so appreciate your thoughtfulness and your attention to detail. It's worth every penny of what we're paying to get someone as conscientious as you watching out for all the "little details." Take care.
Jason is fabulous. He came over and my closets were the most important thing to him. So helpful and thorough. I had all these things going on. He was patient and got it done right. He was personally engaged. He wanted it to be perfect. Exceptional customer service. The install was really good too.
A diverse path has lead me to the field of custom closet, cabinet and storage design. Beginning with an architectural focus through high school, I later changed course towards product design, and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in the field. Challenged with finding work out of college, opportunities lead me towards the computer side of design. Just when it was looking like I was heading for a career in computers, my path pointed me towards the cabinet/closet industry, where I found a rewarding niche that utilizes my many talents.
As much as I wanted to be the designer when I entered the industry, it was not the first role I would play. I began as an installer and production assistant for a very small closet company. It was not long before I recognized little potential for a future there. So began my adventures with California Closets.
Likewise at California Closets, I was not handed the "designer hat" to wear from the beginning. No design positions were available. Besides, they were very attracted to my fresh Installation and production experience. But when opportunities presented themselves for me to move up the ladder, I jumped. I transitioned from the installer department to the production department for a time, and then to a brand new position titled, "all purpose employee." After 2 years of climbing, a design position finally opened up and I hit the ground running. I learned the CAD program with ease. I knew the products and how they were manufactured, making designing very easy.
It took longer than I had hoped to become a design consultant, but in hind sight, I would not have had it any other way. I am quite thrilled to be designing for the leader in the industry. My skills and work ethic have proven to be a perfect fit.
I am very meticulous when designing, and thoughtful in every detail (mindful of crawl spaces, access panels, switches & outlets, etc). I like to put myself in your shoes when sizing up a space for an optimal design. I find many storage needs are similar from one client to the next, but recognize that everyone is unique, and I appreciate the out of ordinary. I try not to let anything inhibit my creativity (within our realm of possibilities).
To arrive at an optimal design, I weigh several aspects of a potential design with regards to the size and shape of the space: ergonomics (elbow room and accessibility), space efficiency, functionality, balance and beauty. I am a refined perfectionist that appreciates that we live in an imperfect world, and sometimes not all design aspects can be perfectly achieved. Sometimes it's worth sacrificing beauty and balance to gain better function and/or accessibility. That being said, I love the challenge of odd shaped spaces. I listen very well, and am very communicative to optimize our understanding of one another and of my design concepts (verbally, written, and visually).
