The Louver Shop of Decatur
David Agnesia, the owner of The Louver Shop of Decatur, Alabama was born and raised in Northern Alabama (Birmingham) and attended The University of Alabama at Birmingham where he majored in Finance. David has found that his degree has helped him in running a successful business since he is almost a “one man show.” “I do everything,” he says “from sales, to installation, to accounting and invoicing.”
David has been a part of The Louver Shop team for more than 23 years and he says that what really sets The Louver Shop apart is that it is a “start to finish” operation. Says David, “We offer full service – from estimates to manufacturing to installation and finally to warranty. Not too many other companies can offer this. It is a great benefit for our customers because they only have one point of contact from beginning to end.”
What David really enjoys about his job with The Louver Shop is that he is not stuck behind a desk all day. He is able to get “out and about,” he states. He does much of his installations himself so he is involved with his customers from the sales process to putting the final product on his customers’ homes. He says that this means that he is really able to build a rapport with his clients and this is another aspect of his job that he likes tremendously.
David’s favorite thing about the region and Decatur is that the people are very down to earth. He covers many rural areas and he likes that most of the people he deals with are out to “make it for themselves”. He also feels that Decatur has a “real Southern Charm”. He values that he is able to have such friendly customers and that good manners and making people feel welcome are part of life in the Decatur.
When David started with The Louver Shop, he had just been laid off and needed a job with good benefits so that he could support his family. He had no idea that he would actually be starting such a rewarding career. Says David, “The company sounded like it had good potential. Now that I have been onboard for 23 years I know they have great potential and I am so glad I answered that help wanted ad all those years ago.” David loves that his career with The Louver Shop has allowed him to make a good living and to be out doing something different every day. He especially says that he loves working with his customers. “It’s rewarding to make someone happy” he states.
In fact, making his customers happy is David’s main goal. He says, “I don’t try to push them into a certain product. I listen to what they want and that is what I present them with.”
David finds that Plantation Shutters are about 90% of his business. People in his region want them more than any other product he sells. According to David, “Part of it is because they are so well made and another part of it is that Plantation Shutters are a classic and make any home look better.
David is active in his community but he says that most of his spare time is taken up with his two grandchildren. He loves spending time with the kids and often keeps them for his daughter (their mother) who is a nurse. David is also a big fan of almost any kind of sport and enjoys watching and participating in a variety of sporting activities.
Although David has won awards and been recognized over the years for his achievements, he says that he is not “a big awards person”. “I’m part of The Louver Shop so that I can take care of my family, have a nice life, and make my customers happy,” he says. “That is the true reward.”
