Sean Olgin, our Outside Sales Professional for the Builders Division, has been with WDC for just over a year and a half but has worked in the home remodeling industry just shy of six years. His sales territory covers Central California, Southern California, as well as the low and high deserts. Sean travels a lot to meet his clients in person and visit the Builders Division construction sites.
The Builders Division of WDC is a special department that provides appliances to contractors and developers who need multiple kitchens outfitted at once. The Builders Division projects can be from five houses to a high-rise apartment complex, to a large development of 300-400 homes. The department doesn’t work on anything commercial, but instead specializes in residential projects – Single Family, Multi-Family and Custom Homes. This unique division has its own trucks and crew to deliver and install appliances for their specific projects. The division provides all the kitchen appliances needed, with top brand name packages that include refrigerators, ranges, wall ovens, and dishwashers, as well as outfitting laundry facilities with the many washer and dryer brands that WDC carries. Sean’s job is to generate new business for the Builders Division, with his connections, and relationships he has with his clients.
“I absolutely love building relationships with customers. I always try to exceed their expectations, so I make sure I answer my phone, return calls and emails immediately and treat my customers the way I expect to be treated – this makes me proud every day.”
Sean does a great job of keeping the Builders Division busy, and Sean thinks this will continue in the future…“Our Builders department is growing daily, and we work really well together to reach our sales goals. We have a great team, and I am happy to be part of it. I anticipate doubling my book of business this year.”
Sean works on multiple projects simultaneously, with several clients all at once. “Most of the projects I work on are specified by designers. I have a handful of builders that I collaborate with on design, but mostly I am provided a schedule to work with. Each project is different and exciting, with its own challenges and rewards. I love it when the job is completed, and I know I had a hand in a fabulous project furnished with WDC’s amazing appliances. The outcome is always tangible, since it’s a construction project, plus it’s always quite impressive when it’s all finished. It’s a fantastic feeling to see it all come together.”
