CR Home, Custom Home Coordinator
Having a lifelong exposure to the home industry from her parents’ fabrication shop, Taylor Gann uses her experience to help clients build their dream project as a Custom Home Coordinator with CR Home.
How did you get your start in the home industry? My family has been involved in the industry for many years. That, combined with my love for all things home design, made the decision very easy for me. My parents are easily my largest source of inspiration. Not only did they give me my first industry job, but they have pushed me to realize that the sky’s the limit and to never stop reaching.
Why do you have a passion for the home industry?
I guess it boils down to the fact that I am a homebody. I like my home to be comfortable, liveable and to make me feel good at the end of the day. I feel lucky to be able to help my clients achieve the same.
How do you spark your creativity when you feel stuck? This may sound crazy, but lists help my creative process. When I am feeling stuck or overwhelmed, I like to break things down item by item or task by task. Concentrating on one thing at a time allows me to give that thing the time it deserves and I can begin to see the big picture more clearly. Dogs and music certainly don’t hurt, either.
What do you think is the most important part of a home? In my opinion, the most important part of a home is the kitchen. In my experience, the kitchen tends to be most consistent gathering zone for families.
What has been the most difficult part of your career so far? The most difficult part of my career path so far would be making the decision to leave my family’s business. I learned so much from them and am lucky that they are my biggest cheerleaders in life.
