Our Team

Maretes - CEO/President

Maretes, the CEO and President of COR Improvements, was inspired to start her own company during a conversation with a patron at the bar where she worked part-time. Discovering Maretes' passion for finish carpentry and specialized painting, the patron, who was a business owner herself, urged Maretes to start her own company in 2007. This encounter sparked the creation of COR Improvements. With a background in building theatre sets and working on various construction jobs, Maretes transitioned into the remodeling field with guidance from her mentor, Kevin. She enjoys the problem-solving aspect of her job, collaborating with trade partners and clients to find creative solutions to onsite challenges. In her free time, Maretes loves playing pickleball, golfing, traveling, cooking, and gardening. She also enjoys ballroom dancing and riding motorcycles.
