All About Allison Guido
Allison Guido officially joined the Almar team in 2002, but she’s been a part of Almar for much longer. Growing up, her dad, Former Almar President, Terrance Quinn, would take her and her sister around neighborhoods on the South Shore. They would go door to door delivering flyers and really spreading the word. You could find Allison in the field working and learning about home remodeling from the time she was nine.
Allison went on to receive a degree in Arts Management from West Virginia Wesleyan College. She double-majored in Business Administration and Technical Theater. During the summers, she would come home and go to JLC LIVE Residential Construction Show in Rhode Island. She gained a ton of practical knowledge. Allison loved all the practical ways she was using what she was learning in college at these conferences.
When she first came in after college, her dad was doing everything by himself. He was working in the field, estimating, and doing all the customer service. Once she got on her feet, she started helping him get things out of his head and onto paper. She created the systems we used today to keep all the projects running smoothly in a format that we keep replicating. That’s been the approach she’s taken all along and continues to take to this day.
Taking Over The Business
Allison took over when Terrance retired and is now one of the co-owners with her husband Craig. “As Almar moves into the future I want to continue to get better about educating people, about creating great homes, and about improving our process and the information that we put out during the process. So you know what’s happening, when it’s happening, and get your questions answered before you even think to ask them. Because remodeling can be stressful, there are people in your house, there’s disruption, your system gets thrown out of whack, and as much as you think you’re prepared for it- you can never be too prepared for what’s coming down the pipeline. I want to be there to help answer those questions and to give you good resources as we move through the process.” -AQ
