Meet the Team
We'd like to tell you a little bit about ourselves and why we love what we do.
Our President & Founder
Steve has been a proud business and community leader in the Tualatin-Tigard area since 1983, when he moved to Oregon with his family and founded SLS. Thirty-five years and countless projects later, that business dream has grown into his life's work, transforming homes and communities for hundreds of Oregon and Washington families.
As a former mayor of Tualatin, a prominent voice in city planning, and a former board member of the Home Builder's Association, Steve has dedicated his career not only to the the project of building homes but to the project of building the community where he, his family, and his customers live.
He has four children and 8 beautiful grandchilden and lives in Tualatin, OR, with his wife Joyce. Steve truly understands the remodel experience, because he has lived through it too!
They still live in the house he built for their family 32 years ago, and they have remodeled it nearly as many times.
Our Office Team
Gail is the glue that keeps our office together! She is the voice you hear on the phone when you call our office, and we are grateful for the11 years of office management background and experience she brings.
She is a master at getting things done, keeping us organized, and keeping us calm when things get busy.
She loves getting calls from clients and hearing how excited they are about remodeling their homes.
Originally from Miami, FL, Gail has called Oregon home for 29 years. When she isn't making SLS a better, more organized, more efficient place to be, she loves cooking, wine tasting, and spending time in Manzanita with friends.
Mary Anne Paget
A former die-hard mortgage professional, Mary Anne left the industry to enjoy the ‘quieter’ side of finance and has been the Bookkeeper for SLS since 2008.
She brings over 20 years combined bookkeeping and mortgage experience to her role with SLS.
Mary Anne loves her family, and the SLS team has Mary Anne's little girl to thank for some of the best coloring book artwork an office could ask for. She has 4 chickens and 2 cats, and enjoys gardening, crafting, and the beach in her spare time.
