Renovation Specialist Field Trainer
From Corona, California
Hey! My name is Caleb Flores and I am a Southern California native who moved to Wake Forest in the Summer of 2019. I am married to my wonderful wife, Katy, and have three children. I moved here to attend Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary to get my M.Div. in Church Revitalization, but quickly realized that North Carolina is a great place to call home!
I have been in construction and trade work all my life, and specialize in carpentry, framing, siding, and roofing. I have worked with several General Contractors, some good, and some not-so-good. What drew me to Odyssey Contracting was their honesty, quality workmanship, and authentic family atmosphere. Within my first few weeks, I could tell that everyone at Odyssey truly wanted to take care of each and every homeowner they work with. I am passionate about serving people in my community, and so is Odyssey Contracting.
From Raleigh, North Carolina
I was introduced to Odyssey Contracting when my dad needed a roof replacement. The Odyssey team came in and met our every need (with a great deal of patience). Sean had told us that he could use some help with social media and photography, and that’s what I love to do.
I am currently a student at East Carolina University, studying Exercise Physiology with the intent of becoming a physical therapist. While this is my primary direction, I have experience with both marketing and photography. It is important to me that I support local, honorable businesses like Odyssey. I am dedicating myself as much as I can to assisting this company in their endeavors to grow and help others. Personally, I would fully recommend anyone with renovation needs to trust Odyssey with their largest investment: their home.
From Atlanta, Georgia
Hey there! My name is Maria Aguilar. I am one of the secretaries/assistants here at Odyssey. I am originally from Atlanta, GA. However, I moved to North Carolina about 2 years ago to be closer to my sister, Ixia. I am a new mom to a sweet baby boy. I am still trying to get the hang of the “mom life,” but I feel like I am pretty darn good at it.
What I love about working at Odyssey is how I can bring my son to work and watch how excited everyone gets to see him. He is a big part of this company. When I came to work at Odyssey, I had no idea what I was doing since I was a surgical tech back in Atlanta. Ixia took the time to train me though, and this job ended up being a perfect fit for me. I am planning on going back to work as a surgical tech once my son is a year old. Right now, I’m trying to enjoy every bit of him, and Odyssey is very understanding and helpful when it comes to taking care of my son.
From Garner, North Carolina
I was born and raised right here in Garner, NC. I have 1 younger sister and a very adorable and loving miniature dachshund named Chico. I worked in the phone industry for 5 years, but I wanted to branch out and try something new. I joined Odyssey Contracting in August of 2020 as an administrative assistant, and I love it, 10/10, WOULD RECOMMEND!
I plan on completing my education in business administration and traveling as much as possible. When I am not at work, I’m usually hanging out with friends trying some new foods or having a solo day to unwind and relax. “Beep boop, beep bop” – Nancy
From Phoenix, Arizona
One of the most important things about working with a company is always being able to feel comfortable and safe in its environment. The reason I love working for Odyssey Contracting is the everyday experience, working with people that care about making a difference in a client’s home.
Homeowners are always pleased to know they have someone from the company on the job site to ask any questions or concerns; their questions are always answered with accuracy and assurance.
My passions are playing basketball, maintaining my body, and working on cars. I also enjoy video games from time to time. It is very important for me to stay close with my family. As the oldest brother to my siblings, I feel that it is one of my jobs to keep my family connected.
My goal with Odyssey is to become the best supervisor that I can, and one day become a manager. Learning something new everyday is always something that I look forward to, whether it’s learning how to get a job done more efficiently or even finding a new way to communicate with our contractors to make sure that the customers are always content. In the end, the most important thing to me is always making sure that homeowners feel comfortable coming to us with any concerns or comments they have during or after the project.

From Whittier, California
I grew up in Whittier, California, and graduated from Whittier High School, the only public high school to have a graduate become President and was the high school in the movie Back to the Future.
After graduating from BYU, I worked for 15 years in information technology. However, finding my people skills under-used, I moved into sales. When selling, the most important thing is to sell a service and company that will greatly benefit customers, and honestly deliver when I promise that value will exceed their costs. I joined Odyssey because of the trust I have in the ownership, Sean and Ixia Holmes, and their commitment to building a business on honesty, top quality workmanship, and extra effort.
I am the blessed father of four beautiful children, Cooper, Cat, Lydia, and Calder, with one more on the way. I am the middle child of seven, my father was in sales and set an example to me of how to treat customers with respect and also educate them in all they need to know to make a commitment.
My personal interests include religion, sports, great architecture, and trying new and delicious food. I can also bake 30-minute brownies in 20 minutes.
