Welcome Gary and Michele Hogg!
We would like to welcome our newest owners to the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE family!
Please meet Gary and Michele Hogg owners of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE of Central Georgia.
Gary and Michele started a carpet cleaning and restoration business four years ago in Milledgeville, Georgia. Ever since, they've been voted the best carpet cleaning and restoration business in their area by the local newspaper, winning the Readers' Choice Award each year.
Gary has owned an independent insurance agency for over thirty years. While working in local insurance, he was disappointed to see their clients only had one choice for full-service restoration work. That was when Gary, Michele, and their son Jordan began searching online for potential franchise opportunities, knowing that a franchise opportunity could take their business to the next level. They soon discovered 1-800 WATER DAMAGE and decided to schedule a Meet The Team Day visit. During their time spent in Ann Arbor, it became clear that 1-800 WATER DAMAGE would give them the additional support they need to rapidly grow the restoration side of their business.
With their conversion to 1-800 WATER DAMAGE of Central Georgia, Gary, Michele, and Jordan continue to provide superior service to Milledgeville, Macon, Dublin, and the surrounding areas. Jordan's experience in business management will play an important role in the business, as he will be the location's Operations Manager. Gary's experience as an insurance adjuster along with the continued support from the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE team, should give their business the boost they need to compete for insurance claims in their area. Michele's continued customer service practices, along with her exceptional attention to detail will help ensure the team is well suited for success.
Gary and Michele are happily married and have five children. They also have five grandchildren, two of whom are five-month-old twins. They share a love for animals as they currently have seven dogs. When Gary and Michele are not busy with work, they tend to stay very active in their church. Michele serves in the children's ministry and Gary plays the saxophone as part of the worship team.
