For Tony Giannakakis, putting the “luxury” in a luxury home isn’t about the dollars spent or having the latest trends; it’s about the details. It’s about the subtle, yet significant elements that each have their own story to tell. It’s about going the extra mile to preserve historical integrity and authenticity in a sustainable, environmentally friendly manner.
This appreciation for history and architecture Tony learned from his father, who moved to the United States from Greece to buy property and start his own business. His father imparted to him the importance of solid craftsmanship in even the smallest of details. Even if this attention to detail means painstakingly researching and importing old wooden crates once used in the Asian spice trade to add a unique touch to a homeowner’s kitchen (that’s a true story).
Tony’s proudest moments have been seeing his clients’ reactions to their finished projects. He prides himself on delivering exceptional quality and service, and challenges his company to always be one step ahead. He is an active member of both the Builder’s Club and BATC (Builder’s Association of the Twin Cities). Tony lives with his wife and two dogs in Edina, and enjoys vacationing in Canada and Greece when he gets time away from work.
