At Sweeney Design Remodel, we believe every home remodel — and most things in life, for that matter — are better when steeped in values. That’s yet another reason we’re thrilled to celebrate the 27-year work anniversary of our estimator and project developer, Jeff Darga!

Jeff embodies everything we cherish, including his relentless dedication to customer satisfaction through personal interaction, proven technical and industry expertise, and unwavering passion to dive into the details of every project and get things done the right way. 

“Tim Sweeney and I go all the way back to grade school,” beams Jeff. “So you can say we’re close friends to the point of being family. Everyone at Sweeney has made me feel right at home for over two decades — and hopefully many more years to come.”

Jeff’s first tour with Sweeney started back in 1984 as a laborer, and quickly rose to lead carpenter. After moving up north for his wife’s job relocation several years later, Jeff was welcomed back with open arms in 2003 and has been a key Sweeney staffer ever since. 

In 2005 Jeff was promoted to project developer in sales, and by 2016 moved into developing all the project estimates and contracts for us. Jeff’s hands-on experience as a carpenter, customer service lead, and project developer have made him an invaluable asset for us and our many satisfied clients. 

“My twenty seven year Sweeney journey has been at times, exciting, scary, but always extremely rewarding,” smiles Jeff. “I take pride in holding steady, giving good advice, and always being honest with myself, my colleagues, and our clients. That’s what makes all of us at Sweeney thrive and do our best work, each and every day.” 

These shared values also make Jeff a highly respected member of our Sweeney team, and is greatly appreciated by our subcontractors, vendors, and clients. “Jeff has been a key player in the success of this company,” agrees Tim. “I consider him a good friend, and part of our family.” 

Married to ‘the love of his life’ since 1989, Jeff and his wife are blessed with a grown daughter. In addition to spending time with his family, Jeff enjoys being outdoors in his spare time, and working on woodworking projects or fishing by the Mississippi River.

From all of us at Sweeney, congrats to 20 consistent years with us, Jeff, and 27 years overall! We can’t thank you enough.
