Nicolas Alegria was born and raised in Miami and is a second-generation finish carpenter. Nick (or Nico as his father called him) grew up watching his father build his dream in South Florida which instilled in him core values of hard work, honesty, integrity, and a drive to achieve success in all endeavors taken on. His father Daniel began teaching him the tools and methods of the trade at a very young age and also provided ample opportunities for him to rise within the ranks of the company in which he desired to have him lead into the future. Nicolas was always a quick study and gained a great deal of experience both in construction and business from his father but realized that one is truly never done learning, so he also earned a Civil Engineering Bachelor of Science degree from Florida International University.
After years of managing operations alongside his father, Nick restructured the companies in 2011 and shifted the business plan to include a more commercial project portfolio. During this time Nicolas also attained a Certified General Contractor license in Florida in order to be able to expand operations into the future. Through years of experience with his father Nick knew that the construction market was missing a specialty trade contractor that could adapt between large residential and commercial developments without sacrificing Dedication to the core values his father instilled in him, Authentic quality products and workmanship, and Reliability unparalleled in the field.
As President, Nicolas oversees all projects and project managers to uphold his vision for the future of DAR. Over the last few years, he has led DAR Finish Specialties and DAR Wholesale to successive growth by continually offering quality and reliability for turnkey products and services for custom residences to high-end hotels and resorts.
