  • Head-Shot

    Robert Emmerson


    Robert Emmerson has been the proud owner of Budget Blinds of Central Tampa since October 2015. Although raised in Rochester, Michigan, Robert has been a resident of the Tampa area for approximately 26 years and considers himself a local. His love of sailing, fishing, and the beach make him perfectly suited for life in Tampa, and he cannot imagine living in any other place. Robert is an avid traveler with favorite destinations like Hluhluywe, South Africa and Bogota, Columbia. The proud father of four beautiful daughters, Emmerson is a graduate of St. Petersburg College, a State Certified Fire Marshall, and has certificates in Fire Inspection and Fire Investigation. The active role he plays in the community allows Robert to meet new people, grow his continually satisfied client base, and ultimately achieve the honor of 2017 Budget Blinds Rookie of the Year! Robert and Budget Blinds of Central Tampa live by one motto only: I don't care how much is spent or what is bought, as long as they buy from us!

  • Kathy Balzer - CTamp

    Kathy Balzer

    Queen of Administration

    Kathy Balzer has been a member of the Budget Blinds of Central Tampa family since 2015 serving in the capacity of Office Administrator. A fourth (at minimum) generation Tampa native, Kathy moved away from the area for what seemed like an eternity (four months), but quickly realized that any state north of Georgia was simply too frigid. Kathy brings over 25 years in retail experience to the team and has a work ethic and organizational skills that are unparalleled. Whether it’s organizing, scheduling, or redirecting/refocusing Robert and Brett, she is the oil the keeps the machine running smoothly. Perhaps it is these skills (among many more) that have earned her the title of Queen of Administration for the Budget Blinds of Central Tampa team!
