Carlos Guzman

Carlos Guzman, a native New Yorker, joined our team as chief estimator with over 17 years of experience. A tremendous asset, Carlos has an architectural degree from New York City Technical College and a BA from Borough of Manhattan Community College.  He enjoys design, music and travel and has instilled these interests in his children.  Carlos is bilingual – fluent in English and Spanish.

As a “North Carolinian,” Carlos encourages his family and friends to visit this beautiful state.  With the changing seasons and landscape, Carlos and his family (4 children) have enjoyed vacationing from the mountains to the coast.  Carlos especially loves the NC winter snow storms since he no longer has to shovel his way out of his house.   ​
