Estes Builders adds four staffers to team

Estes Builders is growing in both its Poulsbo and Sequim offices, with four new hires joining the company in recent weeks.

The new hires expand Estes’ company from 11 to 15 employees, and come from across the region: Bremerton, Poulsbo, Seattle and Redmond.

New employees include: Custom Home Adviser Michelle Hough, Office Manager Christian Keyser, Sales and Marketing Manager Angela Robar, and Customer Liaison Stacey Swann.

“This is a banner moment for our little, growing company. We are adding four key players — all who happen to be women — and it is going to make such a positive impact on our customers, employees and the builder industry,” Estes Builders CEO Kevin Estes said. “As we head into our 30th year in business, we couldn’t be more excited by what is to come.”
