The Louver Shop of Florence
David Agnesia is the owner of The Louver Shop of Florence, Alabama. David was born in Northern Alabama and grew up there. He graduated from The University of Alabama at Birmingham where he got his degree in Finance. David has found that his education has enabled him to run a successful business especially since he calls himself a “one man show.” “I do it all,” he says “from the sale, to the installation, to the final accounting and invoicing.”
David has been on The Louver Shop team for over 23 years. What really makes The Louver Shop unique, he says, is that it is a “start to finish” operation. According to David, The Louver Shop offers a complete service – from estimates to manufacturing to installation and finally to warranty. “Not too many other companies can offer this. Our customers love it because they only have to deal one point of contact from beginning of the job to the end,” He states.
David really enjoys the fact that his job with The Louver Shop is that he is not at a desk all day every day. He likes to be able to get “out and about,” he states. He performs most of his installations himself so he works with his clients from the beginning sales process to placing the final product on his customers’ homes. He is grateful that this means that he can build a true rapport with his clients. This is part his job that he likes extremely well.
One of David’s favorite things about Florence is that he feels that the people are very down to earth. He travels around many rural areas in his job and he likes that most of the people he deals with are out to “make it for themselves”. He says that Florence has a “real Southern Charm”. He is happy that he has such friendly customers and he appreciates that good manners and making people feel welcome are part of life in Florence.
Back when David began his career with The Louver Shop, he had just been laid off and a job with good benefits that would enable him to support his family was necessary. He says that at the time, he had no idea that he would actually be beginning such a rewarding career. “I felt that The Louver Shop sounded like it had good potential. Now that I have been a part of it for 23 years I know they have great potential and I am so grateful that I responded to that help wanted ad all those years ago” declares David. David’s job with The Louver Shop has allows him to make a good living and to be out and about doing a variety of different things every day. His favorite thing is working with his customers. “I really like be able to make someone happy. It’s rewarding,” he states.
In fact, David says that making his customers happy is his primary goal. “I don’t try to push them into a certain product” he says, “I listen to what they want and then that is what I present them with.”
According to David, Plantation Shutters constitute about 90% of his business. He says that people in the area want Plantation Shutters more than any other product he sells. He states, “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 quite active in his community but he says that he spends the majority of his free time with his two grandchildren. He especially enjoys spending time with the kids and often watches them for his daughter (their mother) who is a nurse. David really likes watching or taking part in many different kinds of sports and calls himself “a big sports fan!”
David has received awards and recognition throughout the years for his achievements but he states 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.”
