Stephen Jaron has built a niche serving snowbirds in Florida, remodeling bayfront 20-to40-year-old condominiums, with projects in the $75,000 to $200,000 range. He networks with designers, property managers, and real estate agents. “Working in condo buildings — if you do a good job, word gets around pretty quickly,” Jaron says.

• Based on the complexity of the project, he brings in a cabinet designer, kitchen designer, interior designer, or architect as needed.

• Whether it’s work on condos, restaurants, stores, or offices, Jaron tries to schedule jobs so that work on several spaces in the one location — condo building or strip mall — occurs simultaneously. This maximizes efficiency.

• Jaron keeps up with hurricane codes at local seminars and online classes.

• The company hosts six seminars per year at the Miromar Design Center on a range of remodeling-related topics.
