Presented by California Closets May 25, 2021

At California Closets of Oregon, treating others how they would like to be treated is more than a lighthearted proverb; it defines their entire ethos. To see it in action, look no further than Karina Guasso, an Executive Sales and Design Consultant who’s been with the company since 2013.

In 2020, she was selected as the single recipient of the esteemed “Golden Rule” award, chosen by a committee from an international group of hundreds of her peers. For years, Karina’s customers and co-workers have spoken highly of her integrity, attitude, talent, and ability to listen to others’ needs. Not only is this a great personal honor, but it’s also a testament to her colleagues and their unparalleled commitment to assisting their customers.

A female-owned and -operated franchise, CC has served Portland and the surrounding areas since 1984. With a state-of-the-art woodshop located in Tualatin and 40 Oregon-based employees, it's truly a local business. “We are your friends and neighbors,” explains General Manager Nicole Kypreos. “We look for opportunities to align ourselves with philanthropic endeavors that give back and support our local community.”

The branch’s owner also sits on the board of Home Builders Foundation–HomeAid Portland, and in collaboration, the CC team regularly contributes to projects that develop housing for those in need. Each month, a different CC employee also nominates a charity of their choice for additional giving.

“I can’t think of a better place to raise my daughter than the Pacific Northwest,” Kypreos adds. “After 17 years with California Closets, serving our clients and growing our team members has been an absolute privilege.” Complimentary in-home or virtual design consultations are available, or you can visit the showroom to browse functional and beautifully designed custom storage solutions suited for every space of your home.
