Chris Donaghy, Managing Owner of Kitchen Brokers, is an independent kitchen designer. The company has evolved ahead of the competition to become the first "green" kitchen design company on the east coast. Chris specializes in not only "green" products, but also difficult to find products from around the world. Also, his competence in creating "cooks" kitchens is a result of his exposure to commercial as well as embassy kitchens.
Chris anticipated the declining role of storefront kitchen dealerships, and in 1998 created a business model that allows him to create high-end spaces on realistic budgets. The company maintains low overhead, allowing him to pass on cost savings to his clients.
As a small shop, Kitchen Brokers is a very personable company and prides themselves on getting to know each client fully. "We consider ourselves designers rather than salespeople, which allows us the time to work out solutions for clients. Yes, we earn our keep by selling products, but not at the cost of the clients needs", says Donaghy. With definitive style, and with concern for the environment, Donaghy also utilizes an MBA degree to bring intelligence, integrity, and professionalism to the job. Chris has appeared on numerous segments for HGTV and is quoted regularly in The Washington Post, Kitchen and Bath Design News, Modern Woodworking, and Signature Kitchens, just to name a few.
Chris and his wife, Laura Douglas (owner of RedEye Professional Post), reside in scenic Mason Neck, Virginia with their daughter Cassidy.
