Julie O’Neill – Co-founder
“My daily tasks supported construction, sales, buyers, vendors and others in details, decisions and communication – each component being a mass of information to maintain. It was challenging and exciting, and fraught with the limitations of spreadsheets and legal pads,” she recalls. “Sometimes I imagined throwing a basket of balls in the air in the morning, and hoping I could get them all back into the basket by the end of the day.”
Her input has been key in the development of HomePersonalizer™ as a vital system for both builder and buyer, as well as for the relationship they create through their home building experiences together.
While BuildSys™ was taking form she returned to school and completed undergraduate and graduate degrees. During her studies she developed both respect for the web as an engaging access to information, and curiosity about compelling web utility. Her experiences seeded a fascination with the usefulness of the web in creating helpful, human business relationships and interactions. She enthusiastically directed this perspective to the BuildSys™ system that became HomePersonalizer™.
