Alan Adler-
Alan has built his reputation in the construction industry through his hard work and constant strive for perfection. Alan’s remodeling career began in Chicago in the mid 1980’s where he worked as a project coordinator in renovating rundown, multi-unit Graystone apartment buildings near Wrigley Field. In 1989, Alan moved to Arizona and began working for a custom home builder. He then transitioned into the remodeling industry where he met Claire Ownby and co-founded Ownby Build. Acting as in-field project lead on every project, Alan’s experience and knowledge is the driving force behind the level of detail delivered by Ownby Build.
Jeff Rifkin
As a recent graduate of Arizona State University, Jeff has found his niche in residential design and remodeling. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Design, Jeff felt his knowledge of home development would best be used here in Arizona rather than return to his native home of Chicago. Jeff has a wide array of on hands experience in the design and remodeling field while working as an intern for an architecture firm as well as a residential remodeling company. Jeff’s fresh perspective adds to every job as Ownby Build’s project designer.
