John Spinks- CEO | FL Certified Building Contractor | HGTV Designer

As a graduate of the only dual-accredited Construction Management program in the country and a licensed Florida Building Contractor, Johnny’s passion is…well, homes. Building them, designing them, making them better; it’s what he loves to do. His Midwest roots run strong and deep, but Florida is the perfect landing spot for his soul. He takes pride in his work, and intensely desires to constantly improve in everything he applies himself to. His favorite things are his beautiful and remarkable wife, their bulldog Mannie, rainy nights and learning and experiencing other cultures.



Erica Flamm- Interior Design Assistant

Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, Erica couldn’t imagine calling any other place home than the 904! She is a cardiac nurse by trade – so helping others comes naturally. She has found that laughter truly is the best medicine! Her favorite things are: Josh (her tall, dark and handsome hubby), family get togethers, yoga, and traveling. Her sense of style and design combine both living on the first coast and her experiences abroad in Europe, Asia and California. Good wine and chocolate are a form of currency in her eyes. Pizza is always a good idea. Above all, she enjoys using her creativity to inspire others. Always say “yes” to new adventures!
