From the President’s Desk
Chris Risher

As Austin’s economy continues to outpace the nation’s, it is exciting to see the large number of homeowners reinvesting in their home. You cannot seem to turn a corner in your neighborhood without seeing a home being renovated. This is a testament to Austin’s resilience and our belief that our home really is our best investment.

With this much activity, there is a tremendous shortage in qualified remodelers to handle the large workload. Unfortunately, this demand can and will offer incentives for un-skilled labor and management to move into the industry. NARI’s role in our industry has always been important, but even more so in an environment like ours.

By choosing an Austin NARI member, you can be assured that you are working with a firm that has pledged itself to a higher standard of practice, including honesty, integrity, and responsibility in the conduct of their business.

I invite you to browse our website so that you can learn more about our organization, our members, and why Austin NARI is so important to our community.

2015 President, Austin NARI
