About Us | Professionally
Our business story starts in 1983 when our owner, David Gretzmier, was 14 years old and working on a lighting project for his parents’ home. This project was like many he had tried and succeeded at, such as mowing, planting and weeding flowerbeds. A neighbor noticed his work, remarked how good it looked, and asked him to do their lighting project as well. Thus was born our first paying lighting customer. Many landscaping and lighting projects later, we still have the same passion for doing the best work possible for over 25 years.
Many things have happened over the past 25 years. David continued to run his landscape business through High School and College, ultimately moving the business to Northwest Arkansas, and renaming it AAA Lawns. Over time he grew his landscape and lawn care business into a multi-partner million dollar firm, which David eventually sold the lawn care portion of the business to a partner, which still operates today as AAA Lawns.
With renewed energy and full of new ideas, we called our new lighting company Brite Ideas NWA, named after the Brite Ideas lighting distributorship we purchased in 2001 to expand our lighting capabilities. In 2003, sensing a need in the marketplace, we purchased an additional distributorship selling Holiday Bright Lights products. Both Brite Ideas and Holiday Bright Lights are Headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. For more information, click on their names above.
Another phenomenal distributor we would like to mention is Ewing Supply. They have been an excellent distributor of FX Lighting products to us for over a decade. They have truly helped us succeed with excellent products, and they continue to supply us with many products to this day. For more information, click on their name above.
Although we still do the occasional landscape project, such as water features and French drains, the bulk of our business is Christmas Lighting and Landscape Lighting. Since 2001, we have consistently won lighting awards on the work we do for our clients. Our reputation for the best lighting in the Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, and Bentonville market is unsurpassed. You can see a partial list of our clients on our Services page. We have been proud to serve them and hundreds of others.
About Us | Personally
David and his wife, Sarah, are the parents of 4 beautiful children ranging in ages from 10-21 years old. They love to travel and are actively involved in South American missions as well as the college ministry at Mount Comfort Church of Christ, where David has been a deacon for almost 20 years.
David enjoys projects that allow him to work with his hands and use his creativity. He has experience as a journeyman welder and in wood working, and he even owned his own restaurant at one time. He is an avid user of electric cars as well. But more recently, you will find David hard at work improving The Lighting Master shop with eco-friendly solar panels.
The Lighting Master has always been, first and foremost, a family owned and operated business – something that they believe has helped contribute not only to their business’ success but also to the health and growth of their family as a whole. In fact, their oldest daughter, Anna Marie, who has been helping David since she was 10, is now a full-time employee. She is in college majoring in small business management and has enjoyed applying her acquired knowledge into her job at The Lighting Master.
The Lighting Master staff would like the opportunity to show you the true vision your home or business can become under their tutelage. Call Today 479.502.1047!
