I’m the Flooring Girl. My name is Debbie Gartner, and I love flooring. I love transforming my customers’ homes from drab to fab.
I used to own my own flooring store in Westchester NY/Stamford CT.
Yes, I was a woman owned company in a male dominated industry, and that is one of the things that set us apart. I advised my customers on the right type of flooring for their needs and budget, I helped them pick out the right colors and I optimized the design layout. I explained the ins and outs of flooring, so my customers understood what’s best for them – I enabled them to make the best decisions.
I’m a huge pet lover. I grew up with a Golden Retriever and a Tiger cat, and since then, I’ve always had a pet in my life. This is a picture of my 2 furry babies. They are brother and sister, and they are from one of my customers. She needed to find a new home for two of her cats. Being a pet lover helps me help my customers as we try to find the best flooring solutions for them and their pets.
