Debbie Gartner - The Flooring GirlDebbie Gartner – President & Owner

Debbie loves spending time getting to know her customers and finding materials, colors and designs that work best for them.  So, whether it’s selecting the right species of hardwood, or the best color for the carpet, or selecting the best style and layout for the tile, she always has a solution that looks great and fits within the budget.  She is also great at designing backsplashes and putting some more intricacies with glass and metal inserts.  Debbie is great at demystifying the process and one of the reasons customers love working with her is that they know they can trust her honesty and integrity.


Many people ask her, how did she get involved in this business which is so male dominated and does she see it as a disadvantage.  Her answer is a flat out “No, in fact, it’s a huge advantage” since the primary decision maker is often a woman, and after all, it’s all about making the home look more beautiful and she is wonderful at that.  She loves seeing the impact and transformation that she has had on a home.


Debbie is originally from Chappaqua, has lived in Stamford and now resides in White Plains.  She went to Dartmouth College and has an MBA from University of Chicago.  Prior to starting her own flooring store, she was a Marketing Director at top marketing companies including Procter & Gamble, Cadbury Schweppes and Revlon.  She used to redesign packages, and now she redesigns floor.
