KAREN FARMER
Sales Consultant

Didn’t think flooring was creative, expressive, and fun? Meet Karen!

When did you join the company? I joined the Messner family in September 2009. After almost 20 years working for large and impersonal retailers, I really wanted to work for a small family owned retailer. Messner was the perfect choice, as they had a wonderful reputation and were well known for their impeccable customer service.

What is your role? Prior to Messner Flooring, I worked for Arhaus Furniture for 11 years; initially as a design consultant and later was promoted to the store manager. Being able to go to client’s homes and help them make their homes a special place was a true joy. During this time my passion for interior design grew and I am pleased to share my years of experience with the customers at Messners.

What do you like about your work? The customers that shop at Messner Flooring have the best selection in all of Rochester at their fingertips. I love having the opportunity to work with each of our clients to make the best choices for their lifestyles, as well as the perfect design choice for their homes.

Other interests? Obviously, I love interior design. I also love going to flea markets and I’m currently in the process of looking for an historic farmhouse to restore.
