Fred and Chico Ochoa are brothers and original owners of The Window and Door Shop, in San Francisco. In 1998, they hired their favorite sales person ever, Warren Sizemore. One day, Gaby, the brothers’ sister, came in to the shop, and Warren fell head over heels for her. The brothers saw this as a perfect opportunity to “trap” Warren in the business, and suggested they get married and start a family. So Warren and Gaby got married in the year 2000!
Unfortunately, for the brothers, Warren took a job in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Gaby was excited to become a stay-at-home, since that was impossible to do, while living in San Francisco. However, the cold and snow, proved to be too much for Gaby and there were soon conversations with the brothers to open a second store in California somewhere. Warren and Gaby, decided to move to Sacramento, the Capital City, to raise their family.
In September of 2009, they opened their doors to The Window and Door Shop, Inc. in Sacramento. It wasn’t the best time in the economy to do this, but they figured the only way to go, was up. And up they went, due to their hard work and dedication. In less than a year, they hired their first sales person, Steve Robertson, and six months later, their second, Diane Larson.
They are now a team of six and have established a lot of working relationships throughout Sacramento and within the industry. They love meeting new people and making friends. Come in and meet them and you’ll see why!
Warren Sizemore has been in the industry for more than 25 years. Starting out in lumber yards, hardware stores, and moving into the window and door business, he knows the industry very well and can work seamlessly with builders, contractors, architects, designers and homeowners alike. His expertise and product knowledge is greatly appreciated and sought out by many professionals.
Gaby Sizemore handles all aspects of operations for the shop in Sacramento and marketing of both locations. She has analytical, managerial and negotiation skills obtained by working at UCSF Medical Center for 18 years. Her last position was as a Principal Analyst in the Contracting Department in Organ Transplantation. Gaby enjoys reading, talking, and Friday movie nights with Warren and her three boys!
Steve Robertson came to The Window and Door Shop, less than a year after opening. He has been in the window and door industry since 1986. Steve started out as a driver, delivering and servicing product. That lead him to warehouse manager and ultimately to project manager. Steve worked for Collier’s Warehouse for 25 years before it closed its doors in 2009. Since then he has had many of his customers follow him over. His clients love his honesty, attention to detail, and experience. Steve enjoys rock music and spending time with family and friends.
Diane Larson joined our team in January of 2011. She brings over 20 years’ experience in the building industry and a long list of loyal clients! Diane works directly with many builders on their new custom homes; contractors with large and small remodeling projects; and homeowners on their window and door needs. She is extremely detail-oriented, prompt, and organized! Diane enjoys reading, cooking and spending time with her family.
