Welcome Steven Goldstein!
We would like to welcome our newest managing operator to the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE family!
Please meet Steven Goldstein, managing operator of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE of North Broward.
Steven has worked in large banking and financial organizations for most of his career but has never operated his own business. After some serious soul searching, and with the support of his wife, Steven decided this was the time in his life to take the leap into a new career path. He did some preliminary research to find the right business opportunity but eventually met with a franchise consultant who helped him develop a focus via personality analysis, past experience/background, and several other criteria. Steven and the consultant honed in on several service-type franchises that matched his personality, focused on helping others, and were fairly well-established. After sifting through all the possibilities, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE seemed to hit all the checkmarks on Steven's "must-have" list. Once he had the initial call with the franchise development team, Steven says he was hooked and knew 1-800 WATER DAMAGE was a great fit for him.
Steven's new territory in North Broward County encompasses a number of cities in Florida, but Pompano Beach is the main community he will be serving. Steven has three key goals for his new 1-800 WATER DAMAGE business. First, Steven hopes to reach profitability within his first 12-18 months of operation. Second, he wants to build a business that can financially sustain both him and his wife running it together, which was one of the original "must-haves" when he began his franchise search. Finally, Steven wants to grow 1-800 WATER DAMAGE of North Broward into a successful enough business that he's eventually able to purchase additional territories and/or another franchise within the BELFOR family.
Steven is a newlywed to his incredible wife, Jennifer, and he also has two children from his first marriage. Steven's daughter, Marissa, is 23 and lives in California, and his son, Zachary, is 19 and going into his sophomore year at Florida Atlantic University, where he's studying computer engineering. The final member of their family is their 8-year-old Wheaton Terrier named Tucker, who still thinks he's a puppy. (Look out for Tucker in their future marketing campaigns!)
Outside of work, Steven enjoys golfing, bike riding with his wife, and he recently added swimming to his routine. As an avid golfer, Steven's looking forward to the opportunity to use that for building business relationships as well. Finally, Steven is also a huge fan of most of the professional sports teams in South Florida, but recent years have turned him into "a very frustrated diehard Miami Dolphins fan!"
