Senior Production Coordinator
After graduating from Ohio University in 1996, Steve Colopy started The 3rd Estimate with architecture, energy efficiency, finance- and most importantly, our community in mind. Building a business and a family over the past 3 decades, he and his wife Third Estimate CEO Tara, are still hands-on in the business’s day-to-day operations- working alongside our team to bring big ideas to life.

Steve Colopy

Founder and President
An inspiring leader, Tara Colopy has brought balance and process to Steve’s big ideas from the start. After a brief break to enjoy their daughters Izzy and Addy’s early teen years, she came back home to The Third Estimate team in 2020 with a plan to inspire and drive growth. Her dedication to community commitment and advocation for women in the trades has helped the Colopys build a team of leaders more diverse than the industry standard.

Chief Morale Officers

Brothers Louie and Teddy keep our Solon headquarters Pawsitively upbeat

LOUIE

Older by 4 years, Louie can be found following others around the office to keep tasks interesting and exciting- mainly by adding the step of petting him. He knows there’s something connecting how many pets he gets to how productive we are and isn’t afraid to make demands. Known to “raise the roof,” he lets us know when things are getting too serious with a woof that reminds us to have fun.

 

Younger brother Teddy came from a litter a few years later, and can usually be found following Louie around. As he became more confident around the office, he has started creating his own niche- making sure we all get the energy needed for the workday by monitoring our meals.
