Houzz Inc., the leading platform for home renovation and design, today announced the community’s picks for Best Of Houzz 2016 in North America, a homeowner-to-homeowner guide to the top home builders, architects, interior designers, landscape pros and other residential remodeling professionals on Houzz from cabinetry or roofing pros to painters.
De Pere, Wis. (March 21, 2016) – Andy Selner, president of Roc Building Solutions, LLC, in De Pere, was recently honored as one of home building’s young leaders. He was profiled as one of Professional Builder editors’ “40 Under 40” and profiled in the magazine’s March 2016 issue.
Selner, the only Wisconsin honoree, was among individuals selected based on both professional and personal accomplishments, including community orientation. The Luxemburg native established Roc (pronounced “rock”) Building Solutions, LLC, in 2012; it was a natural evolution in his 14-year building career to start a company that mirrored his personal philosophy and style. It was a very personal decision rooted not only in expressing his passion and creativity on behalf of clients, but also was the right thing to do for his young family.
“It was about being my own boss and living my own brand, but also about doing that and maintaining the balance required for my family,” said Selner, who is married to Nicole and has two boys ages 5 and 3.
That philosophy transcends both the professional and personal worlds for Andy and Nicole, who is also part of the company. It includes embracing servant leadership with contractor partners, which to Selner means working alongside them in a team atmosphere; showcasing creativity; being transparent and approachable; offering unique style touches (including Nicole’s on-site assistance in interior design selections and establishing a home visioning guide for clients) that allow for individuality in a world of cookie-cutter homes; setting expectations up-front; and maintaining open communications on everything from design decisions to timeframes to remove the stress that can accompany a home-building project. It’s proven to be a powerful combination; clients are ecstatic about their homes, core contractor partners make room in their schedules because they enjoy the working dynamic of Roc Building Solutions, and sales have continued to increase 50 percent year to year since 2012. In the past three years, Roc Building Solutions has completed 20 new homes, seven large remodels and several smaller projects – factors that also contributed to the 40 Under 40 honor.
“We work hard to maintain balance in our lives. We’re in a good place right now, creating unique homes that offer the best value, aren’t overpriced, and respect each family’s individuality,” said Selner. “Yeah, we want to make money. But first and foremost, we want a happy customer because that’ll build our business in the future.”
Selner’s servant leadership – which was also a factor considered for the 40 Under 40 – extends to his community outreach. He is an active member of the Brown County Home Builders Association and began serving on its board of directors in January; serves as chairman on the long range planning committee for state compliance for the Town of Lawrence; is a member of the town’s variance committee; and has contributed his skill-sets in design and building to the small chapel remodel at Green Bay Community Church.
Selner earned his business certificate from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in 2009 and is obtaining his certified graduate builder designation through the National Home Builders Association.
