PAUL STECK

Chief Customer Officer

 

Paul joined the Elevate Team in February of 2021, just in time for the historic snowmageddon. Because he moved from up North, he was one of the crazy ones driving around. Thankfully he came equipped with a Jeep. Besides being an excellent driver, Paul brings 30+ years of development, commercial construction management, and restaurant design experience to our team. He has been absolutely jazzed about working with the Elevate Team and its fantastic clients, helping them build their dream homes. Paul will primarily focus on the development side of our business but has a passion for meeting new clients. When not working, you can find Paul in his kitchen. As a passionate chef (and eater) Paul loves to design kitchens. Oh, if you wonder about his co-pilot, that is Cabot, his prized Chesapeake Bay Retriever.

MD WOODALL

Design & Sourcing Specialist

 

Maria-Daphne (or “MD”) was born and raised in NY spending summers in Greece. She followed her passion in fashion, textile, and design to get a degree in Apparel & Textile Management and worked abroad in Barcelona, Paris and Mexico City as well as NYC.

Even though she loves fashion and color, MD has always had an eye for interior design and has used these skills and innate creativity to stage her homes while she has lived in multiple states with her husband, Jeff and 3 boys. MD moved with her family from NC to Fort Worth in 2019 and loves it! Her other passions include spending time with her family here & in NY, traveling, photography, exploring flea markets as well as reading a good thriller and gardening.

For Elevate, he does a little of everything from hanging a mirror, to demolishing a full kitchen, and everything in between. He loves working with his hands—just ask Vanessa—and learning new things. Every day is different and that’s what he loves about his job. As a Project Manager his goal is to satisfy clients, keep them laughing, and give them the home of their dreams. You might see one of his daughters as his sidekick on a job site from time to time.

SANDY

Chief Construction Doggo
