Tim Hughes


The Vertical Connection Carpet One began with the mission to create happy customers. Founders, Kathy and Steven, didn’t want to be at the mall, a restaurant or a party and bump into an unhappy customer. It was as simple as that! Over 4 decades later, the mission hasn’t changed.

John Robb


Thank you for stopping by to get to know a little more about me. I have been a mortgage loan officer for over 20 years and for the past 10+ have also managed a team of loan officers while always continuing to produce mortgages myself. I feel it is important to those that I manage to lead by example. Prior to this career I was a Russian Linguist in The United States Air Force where I proudly served for 10 years. I enjoy volunteering, giving back to my community and charities. I have been and am still competitive in both judo (45 years) and tennis. I mention these things so you can know a little about the person that you will be working with. Having a military and martial arts background you will find that I am organized and dedicated to everything I do. My goal is to protect my clients and make sure they are fully informed of all options available to them. What you can expect from me is honest, prompt and deliver what I tell you I am going to deliver service. Whether it is your first, vacation or investment home there is no greater joy of knowing that I have helped someone achieve the dream of home ownership.

Thank you,

John B. Robb
