Alair Homes Charlotte, North Carolina

Builder • Remodeler • Coach • Consultant Regional Developer with Alair Homes Co-host of the Builder Nuggets Podcast Duane entered the construction industry over 30 years ago working on oceanfront estates in The Hamptons on Long Island, New York. From laborer to craftsman to business owner he was always honing his skills and immersed himself in all aspects of high end custom construction. In 1996 he moved to Charlotte, North Carolina and started a general contracting business with Roger Ketchum and the two achieved success right away, winning industry awards and earning rave reviews from clients, designers, and trade partners. That relationship continues to this day. Today, as a builder, remodeler, coach, & consultant, he is dedicated to elevating professionalism in the construction industry. Having built an all star team that runs his construction business, he has now shifted his focus from the day to day aspects of building and remodeling award winning homes to helping others build more rewarding and more valuable businesses. He believes the key ingredients to success are continuous learning, strategic planning, collaboration with like minded peers and the elimination of egos. He believes that if you fail to do these things the industry will reduce you to a commodity and leave you alone on an island. When he is not talking shop you will most likely find him outdoors. He and his family love to travel, hike, explore, and discover new places and new things. "Enjoy life by living in the moment and try not to take yourself too seriously." Duane is a previous International Builders Show - Speaker/Presenter
