Jeff Light, Project Manager

Jeff began his career in construction as a home warranty specialist. Working with homeowners to solve problems sparked his curiosity to learn more about what works and what doesn’t in construction practices. This led him to seek and obtain certification as a home energy rater and green building advisor. From there Jeff began working with a local custom home builder. Jeff truly loves the process of building and seeing a project come to life, turning our client’s vision into reality.

Tammy Smalley

Tammy joins the Talon team with an extraordinary history in the building industry and an eye for perfection! Her father is a carpenter by trade and a general contractor which naturally led to her interest in all things building. Together the duo ran a custom home building company for 13 years when they moved to Florida from New Jersey. After her father retired, Tammy stayed busy raising her two boys and providing consultation services to clients taking on home renovation projects. In 2016 she found herself back in a full-time position with a luxury home builder and used her decades of experience to help guide customers through the building process in a stress free and fun manner! Tammy knows how to get the job done and loves the process from beginning to end!
