Republic West - Our History
Friends since childhood, partners Jim Weisman and Linda Zimmerman, worked together in another industry before leaving Chicago with their respective families to start Republic West, a Scottsdale home improvement company with a different type of vision.
From day one, they chose to be the alternative solution in the marketplace. In an industry where ethics, honesty, morality and fairness tend to take a back seat to promises, lies and whatever it takes to get a signature on a contract, they set out to build a Scottsdale home improvement company that focuses not only on the end result, but on the customer experience before, during and after completion of the home improvement project.
They opened their doors with one employee, a kitchen table and a fierce desire to change the way home improvement companies are viewed and the experience customers received. They sold and installed energy efficient windows and doors designed for their weather conditions in the Phoenix metropolitan area. As their initiative caught on and customers began referring other customers, their business grew. They knew that the only way to achieve their vision was with an operationally driven company that would not promise what it could not control and deliver.
So, they set up an extensive structure of professionals; all employed by their company and driven by the notion of making the Scottsdale home improvement experience a great one. It has continued to be a resounding success with their customers who continued to do more work and refer Republic West to their friends and families. Today, 14 years from inception, Republic West has revenues of over $12,000,000 per year and growing. But they never take their eye off of their vision: Creating the best home improvement experience possible, before, during and after the completion of the project.
Republic West is a full service Scottsdale home improvement company, specializing in energy efficient window and door replacement, complete remodeling including kitchens, baths, home offices, entertainment areas and room additions and cabinet refacing. Their current structure allows for growth without compromising their vision. They firmly believe that in an industry where the business model of so many companies puts them at risk of being swallotheyd up by companies like Home Depot and Lowe’s; they have a model, vision and structure which will help Republic West to endure and prosper.
Customers will forever desire a pleasant home improvement experience, and as long as Republic West and its employees understand, believe in and continue to live its vision, customers will continue to seek us out and refer us to others. We believe we have the ultimate in staying power: a company built on exceptionally high business ethics, morality, standards and fair play, with quality of both products and installation a given.
In 2003, Republic West was honored to receive the Better Business Bureau Business Ethics Award and in 2006 and 2008 Republic West was chosen as a finalist in this competition. Both of these honors are a testament to the validity of their vision and the culture they have instilled at Republic West.
