Jay Maya started doing landscape lighting in Boca Raton, FL in Jan 1998. At first we did our home as a hobby and soon our neighbors wanted us to do theirs, so we did… then other neighbors & relatives wanted it and it just kept growing from there. We finally had to go and get properly trained by a real pro and we did it in Tallahassee, Fl by my college roommate and youth friend from Gainesville, Fl Carlos Galavis. Carlos graduated as an engineer and owns lighting business 20+ yrs . He trained me hands on and also the designing aspect of the business without cutting corners. Just do it right and is done one time. A+ Illuminations (was Jay’s company name in Boca Raton, Florida) it was fun but extremely hot in mid summer in the 90s. The business rocketed for years then came the recession of 2008 🙁
It was time to make the move to Asheville. Jay left many clients with his older son Chris and do all helper friend Phil.
Jay is college educated with a bachelors in business marketing BA 🙂 worked with big bank and graduated to VP in it and after 15yrs left it to do Outdoor lighting. Ended the coat and tie work.
Jay has also built every home he has lived in, including 2 in Asheville. A1+Illuminations is the legal self proprietor name of the business.
A1+ Illuminations services a 50 mile radius from Asheville. A special large job request somewhere further might be possible. LED technology has transformed the landscape lighting business radically by ease of installation. Fixtures just last for years without changing any LED bulbs.
A1 doesn’t profit on light fixtures. Our hard earned profit comes from Great designs and installations. Jay friendly and easy to get along with.
WE don’t push fixtures, we don’t feel that by adding more fixtures to a good design will make it any better. No hidden fees and “TRUE QUOTES IN WRITING FIRST VISIT. WE WILL NOT WASTE YOUR TIME” We are only a phone call away to show up with a verified appointment 828 707 4380 Jay
