(Denver, Colorado)---This might appear as a marriage of convenience for Lynn Wunsch, but she certainly doesn’t mind if anyone knows. In fact, the more people who know the better when it comes to spreading the word about her situation.
Sound confusing? Well, it’s really not. In fact, it’s a pretty smart move on Wunsch’s part.
You see, Wunsch is a successful realtor who specializes in investment real estate, specifically fix-and-flip, fix-and-keep (typically rentals), and new construction. And as of July 5, Wunsch became one of the newest franchise owners of Floor Coverings International, which offers an unmatched selection of flooring products including carpet, hardwood, ceramic, tile and vinyl, as well as specialty products such as bamboo and slate.
Serving customers in south Denver, Floor Coverings International’s expert Design Associates offer free in-home Design Consultations, visiting customers’ homes in a Mobile Flooring Showroom with thousands of flooring choices to assist them in choosing the perfect flooring solution.
It’s a win-win for Wunsch and her clients, especially given her specialty in the real estate business. Looking to maximize their investment, Wunsch’s clients can benefit from some great deals and advice on quality flooring.
“Flooring is a major concern and expense when you’re buying and selling real estate as an investment vehicle,” Wunsch said. “Since I already have a strong background in remodeling and design, also being able to offer the services of Floor Coverings International can be quite a convenience for my clients.”
Wunsch can use those same skills to give outstanding service to customers looking to improve and increase the investment value of their own homes.
“I was looking for a new challenge and wanted it to align with my passion for home renovation and real estate,” Wunsch said. “Floor Coverings International was a very good fit. Their culture and core values were in perfect alignment with mine.”
Wunsch was so enthused to get going that she condensed 45 days of franchise preparation into 30.
“That’s what having your own business is all about,” Wunsch said. “It’s about rising to the challenge and seizing opportunities.”
Wunsch’s timing couldn’t be better. According to a recent report by The Freedonia Group, the demand for hard-surface flooring in the U.S. is expected to increase 6.1 percent per year to 11.3 billion square feet in 2019, valued at $16.7 billion. The fastest growth will come from the residential market, driven by gains in housing completions and a shift toward hard-surface flooring in living and dining areas, where carpet has predominated, the report said.
Not only is the industry flush with potential, but Floor Coverings International further separates itself from the competition through its customer experience, made up of several simple and integrated steps that exceed customers’ expectations.
“Anything to do with the home excites me and flooring is such a transformative product,” Wunsch said. “A customer can totally re-invent their home by changing out flooring. There are some super-cool products out right now. It never gets old.”
