(Savannah) Summer Smith joined the sales team at Coastal Empire Exteriors in August. As a field representative in the windows division she is selling windows, siding, gutters and porch enclosures throughout the southeast.

Smith has been surrounded by the home remodeling business her entire life. She spent her summers riding around with her father who was in sunroom sales. Later she worked for a competitor in the remodeling business where she expanded her knowledge. In addition, Smith has worked in the home building and real estate industries.

"I really like this company" said Smith. "The people are very caring and supportive." Smith is six months pregnant. A scare in the beginning of her pregnancy had her on bed rest. She was very impressed with the support she received from the management of CEE.
