When a family member passed away recently, I was in a bit of a bind. Faced with an unplanned, whole-house remodel to prepare my loved one’s home for market, I needed help—fast.

While I was able to tackle the bulk of the work myself, there were a couple areas where I just couldn’t step up to the plate. The carpeting and the tub surround required a professional touch.

A quick call to Brian Erickson, the owner of Floorz, and both jobs were prepped, scheduled and installed in time for me to get the house on the market as planned.

I told Brian I needed a new tub and shower, and a gorgeous new tub and shower combination is what he gave me. I told him I needed carpeting that would appeal to every buyer, and a gorgeous, neutral, gray-beige carpet was professionally installed. What he didn’t give me was a hard time about the scope of the project. He was happy to address my needs and stay within my budget.

“We’re the Realtor, home buyer and home seller’s best friend,” Brian says.


He’s right, and I couldn’t be happier with the way my projects turned out. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the house sold in three days—for over asking price.
