Meet the Owners

Our Story

 I, Juliano Scherba, and my wife, Lia Scherba, are the owners and founders of JL Home Projects. We were born in Brazil and came to this country more than 20 years ago seeking the “American Dream.” We had the simple and yet complex belief that anyone, regardless of where they were born or what class they were born into, could attain their own version of success in a society where upward mobility was possible for anyone willing to work. We recognized this was not a reality in most of the world, but we became another living example that the “American Dream” is still alive and available to anyone.

Our story began, with what seemed at the time, as the crazy idea of a very young couple. We moved to United States of America with very little resources and a minimal understanding of the language. We left behind careers, family, friends and everything else. In Brazil, I worked with an accounting firm and then as a salesperson in a multinational firm. After that I worked in my family’s business. I have studied business and finance. My wife Lia, at the time girlfriend, worked as a clerk at an International Bank and had a bachelor’s degree in business and system analysis.

The “American Dream” was not easily attained. Our beginning was nothing but HARD, a lot of work with very little money to show for our effort. My first job in the United States was as a tile setter helper, and Lia’s first job was as a housekeeper. They certainly didn’t seem to be the dream jobs we had left everything in Brazil and come to America for, but we were thankful to have jobs and a starting point. We knew that with perseverance and faith we would arise. Together we cried rivers and almost gave up many times. This background helped us in our decision-making process and also helped us relate to people.

It was brick by brick that we built our lives and business, with extra hard work and surrounding ourselves with great people that we now have an extensive list of achievements and success stories. Our first showroom opened in 2005 in Broward county, then in 2013 we opened our second showroom in Boca Raton. Most recently we purchased our own showroom location in the most valued area in East Boca Raton and completely furnished it with top quality display materials and build outs. We have completed over 1000 jobs from small bathroom renovations to multi-million-dollar new construction and finest luxury renovation projects. Yet, what really fills our hearts with joy is the ability to employ dozens of families directly and hundreds indirectly. It’s simply a beautiful blessing. We are grateful to GOD for our lives, our 2 beautiful daughters, Zoe and Lisa, great friends, the most amazing working team and wonderful clients that have made our “American Dream” possible.

We don’t know exactly what the future holds. We don’t know the obstacles we have yet to overcome, but we always felt passionate about our dreams and continue doing our best at everything we do. As Steve Maraboki stated in Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience, “Do the best you can, with what you can, while you can, and success is inevitable.”

We strive for excellence in every detail, leading to the highest quality of professional services in all aspects of design, construction and renovation. The dignity of our construction projects, and the vast number of enthusiastic client testimonials are evidence of our commitment to quality.
