James' History & Experience in Window Treatments

James Despopulos of the Louver Shop of Sarasota Florida, is more than just someone who is familiar with
window treatments, he has plenty of firsthand experience in the industry, over 25 years, actually. In fact, Mr.
Despopulos has a long track record of working with all kinds of window coverings, having grown up in the
family business alongside his father, Alex, for more than a quarter century.

Get to Know James

James says that he’s learned after so many years in the industry there’s far more to selling and installing home
improvement products - it all really comes down to relationships - especially with his customers. People
become loyal, long-term customers when they get more than just window shutters.

What James Enjoys About the Area

Although not a native of the Sunshine State, James visited often before he became a full-time resident many
years ago. He explains that every time he traveled to the area to visit with friends, he loved the warm weather,
and the combination of those two and a couple more elements made Florida feel like home - eventually
convincing him to make it his permanent home.

He loves the beaches along Anna Maria Island and the Siesta Keys, playing basketball, hitting the tennis courts,
going to or watching the Miami Heat, and strolling around downtown Sarasota, where there’s so many
interesting things to see and do. When he has the time, Mr. Despopulos likes to travel to Greece, returning to
where he studied abroad for a year.

James' Business

But, here in Sarasota County, his Louver Shop is dedicated to its customers’ satisfaction above all else.
Whether it’s blinds, shades, or shutters, it doesn’t matter. All his customers appreciate the time he takes to
ensure they’re getting exactly what they want.

James says, “Customer service is my primary goal and I personally want to deliver a 5 star experience for every
one of my customers.”

Mr. Despopulos also states that he’s proud to offer some of the best custom window treatments available in
the country. Along with his installers - who have over 50 years of combined experience - James feels great
pride when they finish a job. He says that here in the Sarasota/Bradenton area, motorized roller shades for
large Lanai sliding door shutters are among the most popular products.

Meanwhile, his personal favorite is the Louver Shop Louverwood because of its beauty, longevity, and lifetime
warranty. He states this product has the best manufacturing and quality materials to withstand the Florida
heat and humidity.

He also says that homeowners in the North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton area really appreciate that he offers
American-made, high-quality products, particularly because even though it’s a relatively small company, it
delivers superior window treatments each and every time.

My mom wanted window shutters from day one when we moved in in 2012. Well she finally got them and i must say they change the look of each room they are in I would HIGHLY recommend the Louver Shop for you louver needs. They are built to measure and are sturdy, easy to clean and will help keeping the sun out during Florida's Hot and Sunny summers so that should help keep the house cooler. Getting an in home estimate was a breeze from the web site Bill Turner was extremely nice and knowledgeable and on time. Communication was simple phone calls and texts kept me informed all in a timely manner. The shutters were installed today (12/14/23) within the time frame given once order was placed. Bill and "Spanky" were on time for the install and very experienced they did 5 regular sized single windows, 1 large arched window and one "double" large arched window in 2 hours. I only have one photo of one window before the install to share to see the difference the shutters make Highly Recommend for all your shutter needs

Ryan was very transparent and candid with his team's ability to ensure seamless window treatment installation. A refreshing standard we "new construction victims" have NOT been living nor experienicing since closing on our home here in Beaufort SC since date of closing. Brad, the most VITAL team member, KNOCKED the BALL out of the SERVICE COURT!!!+++ Note to Louver Shop...you will soon be appointed the MASTER TRAINER of bringing back CSX to consumer based services....mark my words...you've been appointed 😉 LLR SC take note. TIME's UP. RESPONSIBILITY. ACCOUNTABILITY.

Great work and a great product. This is the second time I have used The Louver Shop. Their work is terrific. They look like they were originally part of the house. Gary goes out of his way to make sure you know what you are getting and everything is to your satisfaction.

Love, love, love my new shutters. I had the Louver Shop of Maryland install shutters at our previous home 25 years ago. We just moved and couldn’t wait to call them back for our new house. Ronnie was fabulous from start to finish with my order through installation. They have outstanding personalized customer service! I highly recommend!

I love our new shutters and shades. Beautiful selection of items. Craig did an excellent job of helping me select the right items and Kenny did an excellent job of installing everything. I hope you can see the pictures but my husband and I are thrilled with the Louver Shop of Charlotte. They are a new company but everything is made here in the US and that is why I picked them.

Excellent service! So quick and easy to work with! Our home looks fabulous with the new plantation shutters installed by the most careful and knowledgeable crew. Hire them, you can't get a better job for such a reasonable price! 100 stars!

Bill Turner was wonderful to work with. Great price, on time installation, and skillful hanging. I wholeheartedly recommend the Louver Shop.

Kenny arrived, explained how long it would take and went right to work. Amazed that he was a one man crew. Besides quick installation he took time to explain care and operation of the shutters. He cleaned up any debris that was created. I highly recommend Carolina Home Products and The Louvre Shop.
