It also works to the client’s benefit, said Patrick Fingles, the company’s chief executive. “We want to change the buying experience and simplify the estimating process,” he said. “We are doing to home contracting what Carvana has done to car sales.”
The Columbia, Md.-based company has 60 employees and nearly 7,000 licensed users at 1,000 companies in the United States and Canada. Fingles said Leap has been profitable since its 2016 launch and expects it will gross about $10 million this year. It just moved into a 15,000-square-foot office designed to accommodate a doubling of its workforce.
Leap is the second company that Fingles, 43, has built: Nu Look Home Design, a Maryland home improvement company formed in 2003, has more than 150 employees, including its builder workforce. It recorded $30 million in sales last year across five states — Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania
