Architectural Designer Entrepreneur, John Williams

Tell us a little something about your business...

Williams Residential Design offers a full range of design services specializing in both custom homes and renovations. My philosophy: “We design your dreams and our future legacy.” Over the last 45 years, it has been humbling to be internationally recognized by my peers in both commercial and residential projects as a builder, developer and architectural designer. It is with great pride and integrity that I credit these opportunities with thanks to my clients who provide a showcase for my designs. There is no doubt that I love what I do…

When was your lightbulb moment?

As a child I was always drawing and sketching, my 10th grade art teacher encouraged me to be creative. When it came time to choose a career, I actually wanted to be a surgeon but realized that I would not have the finances to get through med school. It was at this time that I fell in love again with drawing and that was it…architecture became my passion – For the last 45 years, she has been the love of my life!

What are your three words of advice?

If your interested in referrals then you need happy clients. I built my business on introductions from current and past clients. In any business, you really need to “Listen to Your Customer” in order to receive the privilege of a qualified lead.

Three words of advice...
