Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
ERS Better Homes LLC is my General Contracting/New Home Building company that I am very proud of! I worked and learned so much when I was in the corporate world that really helped and molded me to become a contender in this male dominated industry. It’s not easy, but I love what I do!
ERS Better Homes LLC is registered as a Home Improvement Contractor (General Contractor) and Home Builder. Concetta started out as an accountant in the corporate world, to working with a residential construction company, to becoming a real estate appraiser and getting licensed as a real estate agent, all helped lead her to this goal as a woman entrepreneur in this industry where we don’t see many woman!
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
Most people who refer me are my clients. Sometimes they’ll mention me in the Facebook groups when people ask for recommendations. Also, I put myself out there in the FB group pages which has helped. In the beginning it was extremely difficult, but one person introduced me to a church member who gave me the opportunity to do their home which helped in moving upwards with my company.
