It’s that time of year when gratitude feels like it’s in the air everywhere. But here at Pearl, we believe practicing gratitude should be a year-round activity. Of course, we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk. In fact, every week at Pearl, we have an all-staff “meeting” called Thankful Thursday, during which the sole purpose is to share what we’re feeling grateful for. (Check out the screenshot from a recent Thankful Thursday above and you’ll get a sense of how much we all enjoy this time.) 

Showing appreciation for others is also built into our Pearl Contractor qualifications — and we recently wrote about how an “attitude of gratitude” is not only good for the soul, it’s good for business too.

Of course, we couldn’t help but want to amp up the gratitude this month. In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we wanted to publicly express our sincere gratitude to all the people who make our work meaningful and enjoyable: The Pearl Contractors who work hard to improve homes, the real estate professionals who ensure those homes are valued properly, the homeowners who use Pearl Contractors to improve their home’s performance, and the industry partners who support us along the way. We certainly could not do what we do without your support—and for that, we are very thankful.

We asked some of our team to share what they are most grateful for, and here’s what they had to say...

“I'm grateful to our contractors for defining what it means to be elite! A common theme that I have recognized across the various contractor types from all over the country is their commitment to their employees. If they take care of their employees, their employees will take care of their customers, which helps to elevate their business. In short, take care of those that are taking care of your customers and you'll have a successful business. Thanks for setting a great example!”

John White Director, Contractor Success

“Every time I get the opportunity to connect with our Pearl Partners, I'm met with integrity, quality, and often a good dose of humor. Each company we accept into our network raises the bar on quality installation and customer service. I'm truly grateful to have the chance to work with all of you.”

Amy Beley Vice President of Success

“I’m grateful for the Pearl Real Estate Network Members who bring the value of differentiation to Pearl Certified homes on a daily basis. People like REALTOR Melisa Camp, real estate professional Brett Vredevoogd, and so many others. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to provide a healthier, happier lifestyle to new homeowners across the country.”

Joseph Gentile Vice President of Real Estate

“Owning a home is both rewarding and challenging but we have such a unique opportunity to support homeowners through that process. That’s what I’m thankful for: the opportunity to deliver products for homeowners to help them create high-performing homes. I am also thankful for the continuous engagement and excitement from homeowners as we build Green Door.”

Rachel Davis Vice President of Product

“I am thankful for like-minded partners and manufacturers who are committed to the same kind of excellence and integrity that we are here at Pearl. Their collaboration, creativity, and commitment to transforming U.S. home health is inspiring. In addition to long-running contractor association partners like Air Conditioning Contractors of America, Business Development Resources, Building Performance Association, and the National Comfort Institute, we are thrilled to have formed new partnerships with ClimateCheck, Schedule Engine, NAR Green designees, and manufacturers such as Lennox Industries, Owens Corning, and SunPower.”

Lindsay Bachman Communications Director

“Part of Pearl’s mission is to make high-performing features of homes visible as they are often overlooked. On a daily basis, I support homeowners as they get to know their homes in novel, intimate ways. The most rewarding aspect of my work, for which I’m so grateful, is helping guide people toward understanding and confidently investing in that incredibly important foundation of their lives—their home.”

Nathan Gee Customer Solutions Manager

Happy Thanksgiving to all, from all of us at Pearl!
