PRODUCTION

Approach each project with determination and a willingness to tackle any challenge head-on.

LOFTED STORAGE
BAR | SAWING STATION
COVID READY

Created a custom built in desk area that was a perfect match to the kitchen that I had completed soon after purchase.
Utilized every square inch of the 1800 SQFT space by converting the dining into a home office/guest area.

POOL | HARDSCAPE | LANDSCAPE

Designed myself, with the deepest part of the pool at 5′ 6″ in the center and both ends at 3′ 6″.
Umbrellas mounted to concrete piers I poured before pavers were laid.
I installed the walkway pavers at the pump and beyond past the storage building.
Purchased and installed all landscape lighting.
Selected all the landscaping that was installed by the company.

My diverse background that also includes construction knowledge, listening, and communication skills have equipped me to adapt and thrive in customer-centric roles.
Whether working autonomously or as part of a team, I bring an ownership mentality, ensuring that I represent the customers, vendors, and HabiJax associates with the highest levels of professionalism and integrity.

I am excited about the opportunity of joining a community focused organization with shared core values. My customer service skills at the executive level, real estate photography business development, and dedication are a perfect match for this role’s requirements.

Thank you for considering my application!

Warmest Regards,
Matthew A. Crace
