CEOJavier’s enthusiasm for construction, remodeling, and business started at a young age. He gained renovation and construction experience in Florida where Javier purchased homes and supervised remodeling them, provided home inspection services, and completed all the marketing for his business, JML Real Estate Services. Javier has designed, remodeled, and been a Restaurant Owner (among other things!), contributing to his vast business experience. Most recently, he was with a very established design-build company acting as General Manager in Boston. He really enjoys working with and helping people, which is what drives and motivates him.
CMOKara has an educational background in Interior Architecture and Design through the Academy of Art University, and work experience as a designer for a commercial architect in Boston. She successfully transitioned into the sales and marketing side of business, where she has been for the past 10 years. In her last position, she was in charge of running the marketing for an award-winning design-build company in Boston. Her contributions to growing that company combined with her design and marketing background made her an excellent fit for Build Forward Construction.
“Javier is a pleasure to deal with. He listens and understands what is needed and works with you every step of the way. He helped with various aspects of remodeling a 1904 2 story-farmhouse in McMinnville including putting in a beautiful stairway banister and railing that perfectly matched the upstairs railings. He takes pride in his work, and gives good quality for a good price. I'll definitely use him again.”LARRY P.
“Javier is great to work with!! He makes the process of construction/repairs easy for his clients, especially when they may be long distance. He has created many custom works for 2 of my properties as well as hung drywall & doors, installed moldings and baseboards plus assembled oversized pre-standing closets. I am happy with the works he's completed”Zonjah L.
“Build Forward does great work. One of the most service-oriented companies around. You won't be disappointed! These guys are great, and they deliver what they promise. If they tell you they'll be there at noon, they're there at noon. Very professional work.”Dege D.
