Our decision to make recent hires directly reflects the boost in sales that we have seen from new home purchases or homeowners’ recent decisions to renovate long-term homes.

On Thursday, May 2nd, National Public Radio ran a segment on its popular program “All Things Considered” about the improved housing market in the past year, and its positive effect on growth in other sectors. Mina Fies, CEO of Synergy Design & Construction in Reston, VA, confirmed that a recovery in the housing industry boosted business for the design-build firm in 2012.

“2012 was just an amazing year for us,” Fies stated on the show. “We grew about 40 percent in revenues. We added three people, more toward the end of 2012. And already we're tracking for 2013 to grow another 30 percent, and we're looking to hire at least another three employees.”

During the segment, the sentiments were echoed by an economist at the National Association of Realtors and members of the landscaping and even automobile industry.

“When asked by vendors and realtors over the past year, we have been consistently answering that business has definitely improved,” confirms Fies. “As the owners of a small business where smart spending is key, our decision to make recent hires directly reflects the boost in sales that we have seen from new home purchases or homeowners’ recent decisions to renovate long-term homes.”

Synergy D&C currently employs seven full-time team members who lead home and commercial renovation projects from the early planning phases through construction. With several projects currently on the table and in the pipeline, 2013 revenue should well exceed last year, with continued growth projected in 2014.
