Lindsey Jagoe Highlighted in HBAK Member Profile

Lindsey Jagoe Highlighted in the Home Builders Association of Kentucky Member Profile

lindsey jagoe
Lindsey Jagoe, Jagoe Homes Louisville Regional Sales Manager

Lindsey Jagoe is our Regional Sales Manager in Louisville, Kentucky.  As the Home Builders Association of Kentucky (HBAK) puts it, Lindsey, “does not fit the mold of a sales manager for a home building company that is firmly planted in multiple markets and has received national recognition for its energy-efficient building practices.”

Well, no offense to HBAK, but we think that Lindsey broke the mold for a sales manager. Lindsey brings a fresh look on management, while still technically learning how to be a leader. When she took on this position within Jagoe Homes, she knew that she was going to have to forge her own path. She, along with her soon-to-be husband, Brent Vorst, who is in charge of Jagoe Homes’ Land Acquisitions, took the plunge and moved to Louisville in the Summer of 2016.

Currently, we have a Model Home in Glenmary Commons, a garden home community located off of Bardstown Road that offers maintenance-free living at its finest. Soon we will also add another community, Brook Stone Estates to the Louisville market. Of course, Jagoe Homes also offers the option to build your new home where you want.

This year will be Jagoe Homes’ first year in Homerama,  in Catalpa Farms, where we will be featuring one our our new Luxury Home plans.  This annual tour takes you through dream homes in one of the city’s newest developments, carefully planned to provide the feel of living with nature while enjoying the latest in home design and technology.

lindsey jagoe

The HBAK articles goes on to explain that Lindsey, “is among the fourth generation of her family to work for the company. She grew up immersed in home building, hanging out on job sites, and sketching out floor plans. She’s also lived in several Jagoe-built homes.” Lindsey has her bachelor’s degree from Transylvania University in Lexington, and went on to get her masters degree in Urban Planning from UCLA.

Lindsey and Brent will admit to you that they enjoyed their time in California. However, they  unanimously agree that it was not their favorite place to live. They found their way back home to  Kentucky. “In Los Angeles, she saw the impact a lot of affordable housing can have firsthand. She’s since watched the problem spread across the country. ‘That is something that drove me back to Jagoe [Homes],’ she said. ‘We build in a lot of different price points, and many of our customers are first-time home buyers. I think it’s important to provide that first home for people to start investing… I definitely had a lot of idealistic dreams about urban planning, and I have been trying to figure out how to mesh those with the real-world realities of sales and marketing.'”

Let me just tell you, from a true insiders perspective of Lindsey, she’s a truly remarkable person. She’s kind, and hopeful and her laugh is simply contagious – and this is just to coworkers and family! Imagine how she is to a complete stranger! The term “over and beyond” envelopes her drive for success and happiness, not necessarily for herself, but for those complete strangers that show up at her model home, eager to purchase a new Jagoe home for themselves.

That’s probably why Lindsey and her team are seeing such success in Glenmary Commons. Everyone they encounter, whether they purchase a home or not, at the very least leaves with a smile. Hopefully, you’re the next one to have the pleasure of meeting Lindsey Jagoe.

Downtown Owensboro: Where Everything Happens

A View from the Top of Downtown Living – a True Resident’s Perspective

There’s nothing quite like living in Downtown Owensboro. It’s everything that I love – the people, the hustle and bustle, the parks, the events, the nightlife and the restaurants. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to walk twenty feet to your front door after having a few at the local watering hole after work. Life is just simpler walking to church or your friends house or, in the most ideal circumstance, even your job. Who doesn’t need that little bit of extra exercise on a warm, sunny day on a stroll down by the river or playing with your children at the park? That’s probably why I couldn’t imagine myself living outside of this downtown setting.

City and country living are not as opposite as you think. In fact, I believe Downtown Owensboro blends the best of both worlds. What do you envision when you think of quaint suburban life? Pleasant neighborhood parks almost always come to mind. For some, this contrasts with their vision of city life as living in a concrete jungle. Owensboro is home to the world-renowned Smothers Park on the riverfront, which displays a couple infamous concrete trees that actually double as a handicapped access bridge on the playground. There is something for everyone to do downtown – take a look around the next time you’re there!

You can also get a bit of country tranquility from living and working at higher altitudes. Downtown Owensboro is vibrant and offers continuous action and movement. While most of the time this is exciting and enjoyable, we all seek a retreat to spend time alone or in a quiet place. Taller buildings allow you to rise above the din – literally, taking solace in a home above the street level.

If you do happen to find yourself becoming a city dweller, try to remember how enticing your downtown home is for friends and family to visit. Rather than lamenting another trip to the sleepy suburbs, those closest to you can’t wait to come back! Once they arrive, you’ll have endless opportunities to show them new corners of the Owensboro you love. From aforementioned parks to the famed International Bluegrass Museum and unique shopping experiences, the downtown life puts you in the heart of it all.

 

 

Sure, I enjoy the weekend getaway to the country side or the lake just as much as anyone else, but it’s the excitement of Downtown Owensboro that I like to call home. It’s here that I walk my dog, I take my nieces and nephews to play at the park, I walk to dinner with my family, I entertain business associates at the restaurant around the corner, I visit with friends on the riverfront and often just visit with myself and my labrador as I watch the barges tug by.

I have a lot of skeptics who ask me why in the world I would want to live in Downtown Owensboro, and maybe I can’t convince everyone, but I have certainly convinced many who are tired of mowing their front yard. I have friends that visit from Nashville and Lexington and the like. I take them onto our rooftop during the Air Show to watch the jets fly overhead, and their eyes widen. I take them down to Friday After 5 for free summer concerts, and they dance. I make them stand in line for twenty minutes to get a chicken that’s been barbecued for five hours at BBQ Fest, and they get back in line for more. “I like it here,” they say.

No offense to my big-city buddies, but the reason they like it in Downtown Owensboro so much is because they get a more intimate taste of what they experience in their own city every day. You get to live in a downtown setting without the traffic or the crime or anxious feeling of getting somewhere that’s really close quickly and safely. There’s your feel-good feeling you were looking for. Now you feel home in downtown.

 

downtown

 

Now you too can experience what I love so much about Downtown Owensboro: Where Everything Happens! At Parkside 100, Jagoe Homes brings our reputation from award-winning design, experience, and quality homes to this historic elegant setting. Located at 100 Allen Street, the condominium suites offer beautiful architectural features such as wood-clad windows, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and a spacious, open-concept layout that’s perfect for any family. Modern features also adorn the homes with gourmet kitchens, embellished with beautiful granite countertops, travertine backslashes, custom cabinetry and premier luxury appliances.

Your neighborhood at Parkside 100 is a lively Downtown Owensboro experience. Whatever the occasion, or whatever your hunger, you will find eateries for every appetite. Step outside your door and explore the distinctively different and uniquely inspired shops of Downtown Owensboro. You will find yourself in the heart of the city’s premier community events because there is always something to do in downtown!

Move Up to the Luxury Suites at Parkside 100 and Enjoy Carefree Living in Downtown Owensboro!

Owensboro Parent Magazine Features Ally Newton in Their March & April 2018 “Playbook”

Ally Newton is the beautiful daughter of Jagoe Homes’ own Payroll Account/HR, Dawn Powers. Owensboro Parent is a free magazine for families in Western Kentucky. You can pick up a copy of each issue, which comes out every two months, at any of their pickup locations. The March & April 2018 issue featured the Owensboro Parent Playbook: Your Essential Guide to Youth Sports and Recreation in Daviess County. The inspiring article focuses on the wide range of sports and activities that parents can get their children involved in. It encourages parents not to, “be surprised if it takes a few tries – or a few seasons – to find the sport that’s right for your child. It often takes times for kids to figure out which activities they enjoy. The Owensboro Parent Playbook is meant to serve as a handbook for youth sports and league registrations in the community.”

Ally Newton was one of the four local kids that Owensboro Parent chose to highlight in the Playbook issue. 12-year-old Ally has found great success at her martial arts academy, Hidden Samurai, where she is the only female competing in jiu-jitsu. Her older brother was already involved in the sport, and while cheering wasn’t really her thing, sparring in a male-driven sport has already lead her to three, first-place wins and one, second-place win!

In the Owensboro Parent article, Jagoe Homes’ Dawn Powers admits that, “There are certain moves where she could get hurt. But a lot of it is discipline and her mind. She will cry sometimes, but it comes with the territory.  As a parent you learn to just sit back and let her work through it on her own.” Dawn goes on to say that,  “It’s very empowering as a parent to watch your child develop the required skills, techniques, and the physical fitness required for this sport.  Especially when you see the impact it has on building good character in young people.”

IBS 2018: New Products from Our Vendors at the International Builders Show in Orlando

The International Builders Show (IBS) is a world-wind for Jagoe Homes employees. With three days of non-stop education, show floor time, and networking, we are excited to share with you some of the new products that several of our vendors debuted at the convention from January 9th – 11th in Orlando, Florida.

Sherwin Williams – Indoor Paint

Sherwin Williams has made color-matching smarter with the ColorSnap Match smart device app, which pairs with a specially-designed ColorSnap Match paint color matching device. IBS attendees saw that the ColorSnap Match use can press the paint color matching device directly against a paint swatch or solid color of any kind to transfer an image of that color directly to the app. The app will precisely identify a Sherwin-Williams paint color, provide a palette of similar colors, or identify a Sherwin-Williams color that closely resembles the color that the device has picked up. With so many similar paint colors, this will be an easy way for all of our home buyers to choose colors with confidence.

Formica – Laminate Countertops

Formica continues to impress us with their innovations in laminate. This is not your grandmother’s countertop! Formica Corporation debuted the Quartz Composite, inspired by the look of traditional quartz, which is a much more expensive countertop material like granite. Created from concrete and recycled glass, Formica’s Quartz Composite patterns include medium to fine-fill background particulates and a blue-gray river-like vein. The composite’s Artisan finish offers a smooth, slightly glossy surface that brings out the details of the pattern. Formica also showed off its Magnetic Laminate – perfect for any kids room, where you can place this product on a wall. This is ideal for communication and display for a strong magnetic effect that can be written on with chalks or special board markers.

Napoleon – Fireplaces

Napoleon launched two new electric fireplaces this year at IBS – Alluravision and CLEARion. CLEARion is the industry’s first see-through electrical fireplace. While some people still prefer a more traditional standard gas fireplace, this is quite an innovation! The 48-inch fireplace fits in a standard wall cavity and can heat both sides of a room separately with different temperatures, and can heat a room that is up to 800 square feet in size. It is all electric, so that means that this product can be installed with no gas lines or vent runs. It can be plugged into the wall or wired directly into an electrical system. Alluravision is a frameless electric fireplace that can be built in or wall mounted without the need for venting. Homeowners can change the speed, color, and display of the flames for added customization.

Kwikset – Door Locks

Kwikset is growing its line of smart locks through partnership with Amazon to work with the new Amazon Key technology. Amazon Key allows Prime members in 37 cities to receive in-home delivery and grant secure home access for guests using the Amazon Cloud Cam and a compatible smart lock. Kwikset offers two of the lock options available when purchasing the system– Kwikset SmartCode 914, a touchpad smart lock, and Kwikset Convert, a smart lock conversion kit that converts standard door hardware in rentals to a smart lock – to work exclusively with the Amazon Key In-Home Kit. Kwikset is also expanding the Kevo line of Bluetooth enabled touch-to-open smart locks with Kevo Contemporary, a new square-shape contemporary style for a modern aesthetic.

LP Building Products – Siding

LP Building Product’s Smartside group is a tall order! The new cedar texture vertical siding comes in lengths of up to 16 by 4 feet and also comes pre-printed. LP also introduced the Perfection shingle, which features cleaner lines and what a company official called a “modern classic look.”

Simpson Strong-Tie – Hurricane Clips

You may be wondering what this is, but Simpson Strong-Tie has made an impressive building innovation that one of our owner’s, Bill Jagoe, was especially excited about. Simpson Strong-Tie’s new Fascia-Fastening Solution is designed to securely fasten composite and PVC fascia boards while providing corrosion resistance. The two-part system consists of stainless steel fascia screws and a counterbore bit, which bores a hole that is wider than the shank of the screw. Designed for use with ½-inch to ¾-inch fascia boards, the Fascia-Fastening Solution accommodates expansion and contraction of installed boards to prevent material failures due to changing environmental conditions.

We are rolling out even MORE innovations for our team in addition to our vendor’s new products for 2018 – Stay Tuned!
