The 2018 Year End Review with Jagoe Homes

2018 was QUITE the year at Jagoe Homes! We want to share with you what we believe are huge successes, accomplishments and milestones that we met as a home builder. We have overcome obstacles, found areas to develop and strengthen, and established priorities.  However, what seems to remain constant every year is how happy we are for our new Jagoe Home owners!  From families visiting our Model Homes or setting appointments for a first-time visit, and for each step throughout their journey to new home ownership, for all of us at Jagoe Homes, this is a humbling and wonderful experience. The best part is always at closing, when we finally hand the keys over to our new home owners. This is not a sad moment for us, because once you’re a Jagoe Home owner, you become a part of the Jagoe Homes family. We appreciate our employees who work day in and day out to help Jagoe Homes reach goals to make our company the best it can possibly be. We also want to thank the realtor community, our preferred lender, FBC Mortgage, trade partners, and affiliates.

NOW onto the numbers…

2018 jagoe homes review

We started out 2018 at the International Builders Show in Orlando, Florida!

2018 jagoe homes reviewThe International Builders Show (IBS) is a world-wind for Jagoe Homes employees. This year we were able to take all upper management, the marketing team, the estimating team and the drafting team. IBS is an important part of our year. We find extreme value in the education it provides from our industry’s top ranking trainers and professionals, and the elaborate showcasing of new products from our vendors. We look forward to another trip to IBS, this time in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2019!

 

We had 7 Community Grand Openings!

We started off with Berkshire’s Grand Opening in Newburgh, IN – we opened sections in Waterside at Berkshire and Turnberry at Berkshire!

Then we hosted a Grand Opening for Windstone in Owensboro, KY, which includes sections Avondale at Windstone, Bellefield at Windstone and Overton at Windstone.

Finally it became time to open our FIRST Downtown Building in Owensboro, KY, Parkside 100! This was a MAJOR milestone for Jagoe Homes! We purchased this historic building in hopes of bringing our reputation from award-winning design, experience, and quality homes to this historic elegant setting. A few homes are currently still available in Parkside 100 going into 2019!

In the spring of 2018, we had the Grand Opening for Central Park, which is a community centrally located in Owensboro, KY. Central Park is home to our beautiful garden home series.

In the summer, we sold the first home site in Brook Stone Estates in Louisville, KY! Brook Stone Estates is our newest community in Louisville, located in the heart of Jeffersontown, more commonly referred to as J-Town by locals.

Then in the fall, we hosted the Grand Opening for Eastwick at Berkshire in Newburgh, IN. Since Eastwick at Berkshire is a brand new section with different home elevations and product than our other sections in Berkshire, we had its own grand release event!

Finally in November, we opened the much-anticipated Bluegrass Commons community in Owensboro, KY! This wonderful community features our single-family attached homes in The Acoustics at Bluegrass Commons, our single-family homes on 50′ home sites in The Ballads at Bluegrass Commons, and our single-family homes on 60′ home sites in The Legends at Bluegrass Commons.

While we hosted these grand openings, we also extended parts of our communities in The Orchard and Cayman Ridge in Evansville, IN, and Glenmary Commons in Louisville, KY.

COMING SOON in 2019 – Magnolia Hills in Bowling Green!

We took home several awards…

Jennifer Lucas, our Online Sales Manager, was awarded the Silver Award at The Nationals during the International Builders Show in 2018 for Online Sales Counselor of the Year! The Nationals salute and honor the best in the building industry for their determination, integrity, creativity and endurance. Shortly after that, Lindsey Jagoe, our Louisville Regional Sales Manager, was highlighted in the Home Builders Association of Kentucky’s Member Profile! Lindsey is one of the pioneers of our Louisville market, which really took off in 2018! We are extremely proud of our employee’s accomplishments!

We took home THREE awards during the Southwestern Indiana Builders Association (SIBA) Parade of Homes in June. These awards included Best Kitchen and Best Exterior!

In our FIRST YEAR in the Builder Industry Association (BIA)’s Homearama in Louisville, we placed 2nd in Overall Home and Interior Design, and were also awarded “Best Closet Design” by the BIA board.

Our first year ever in Homearama was FABULOUS!

While we are proud of the awards we took home from Homearama 2018, we are mostly proud of the teamwork and impeccable effort that was put into this project by our Jagoe Homes staff! Amelia Laster, our Design & Merchandising Manager, beautifully decorated this home, while Paul DiGiorgio and his team masterfully designed its architecture. Not only did our staff work very hard on this home, our supplier, and WinSupply of Owensboro, supplied us with the kitchen, owner’s bath and owner’s closet features. It just goes to show, a project of this size involves everyone from inside the company and out, right down to the people who came to tour our Homearama home during the two-weeks it was open to see us! We are still able to build on home sites in the community where Homearama took place, Catalpa Farms, in 2019!

We participated in MAJOR Community Events, sponsorships, and many other events in all of our regions.

Each year, we pride ourselves in sponsoring and being a part of community events. We feel like being a part of the communities that we build in is very important!

We sponsored the Kiwanis Club of Owensboro’s 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off & Auction! This event supports local non-profits and was help at the Cliff Hagan Boys & Girls Club in Owensboro, KY.

For the third year in a row, Jagoe Homes was the proud Title Sponsor for Friday After 5, a 16-week free concert series, held every Friday from May until August on the Downtown Owensboro Riverfront. We look forward to another sponsorship opportunity with Friday After 5 in 2019!

Although we have had a sponsorship with ROMP Music Festival in previous years, in 2018 we became the Official After Party Sponsor! We also celebrated the opening of the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum in October. We are looking forward to continuing this ROMP tradition in the summer of 2019!

We also sponsored the 2018 Evansville HydroFest & GP-20 Hydroplane on Labor Day Weekend for the second year in a row!

This was our first year participating in the Gaslight Festival in Jeffersontown in Louisville, KY! This is where our new community in J-Town, Brook Stone Estates, is located.

Jagoe Homes participated in many home tours in 2018: Spring Tour of Homes in Newburgh and Evansville, IN, The Tour of New Homes in Louisville, KY, Chefs on Parade and Parade of Homes in Newburgh and Evansville, IN, Parade of Homes in Owensboro, KY, Parade of Homes in Bowling Green, KY, Fall Tour of Homes in Evansville and Newburgh, IN and Owensboro, KY and finally the Christmas Tour of Homes in Owensboro, KY.

Jagoe Homes introduced 13 NEW home plans!

While many of these plans can be found in all of the regions that we build in, some are only available in select communities. These new plans introduced in 2018 include:

  1. Thomas Jefferson
  2. Spruce Craftsman
  3. Spruce Farmhouse
  4. Declaration Craftsman
  5. Declaration Farmhouse
  6. Revolution Craftsman
  7. Revolution Farmhouse
  8. National Farmhouse
  9. Mandolin
  10. Mandolin w/ Hobby Room

We have a new, amazing preferred lender, FBC Mortgage!

Jagoe Homes welcomed Bambi, Kevin and Kyle from FBC Mortgage into our Corporate Office this year! FBC has been such a blessing to our company and provides our home owners with competitive rates and financing incentives.

We introduced a new Realtor Reward$ program!

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.

Louise Murdock Honored with the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce 40Under40, News4U Evansville Magazine 20 Under 40

Jagoe Homes’ own Social Media/PR Coordinator, Louise Murdock, was appointed with top honors in the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce’s 40Under40 (Copyright Tanner Publishing) and News 4 U, 20Under40 in 2017. Forty individuals were nominated for 40U40 based on their leadership and potential to influence our community. Each nominee was recognized as hardworking, daring, innovative, and going above and beyond to affect change in the workplace and in the community.

They are executives and directors of foundations and non-profits. Principals and professors. Some are second and third generation business owners, while others are entrepreneurs and pioneers. All are shaping the future of Owensboro in their unique way.

After nominations were received, each nominee was sent a packet. Those applications were carefully reviewed by an anonymous panel of judges on a selection committee that was independent of the greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce staff and board members. Final selections were made by that independent committee based on the nominee’s experience, contributions, and essay answers.

louise“I’m truly humbled to be associated with such an incredible group of people,” Murdock states. “I’m excited to lead Owensboro into the future by putting our minds together and working towards the growth of Owensboro.”

Atlanta native, Murdock is very much at home in Owensboro and Jagoe Homes. The University of Alabama graduate oversees all social media accounts and contributes to marketing endeavors. When not giving her all to promote the Jagoe brand, Murdock especially enjoys giving back to her community. She loves volunteering on behalf of Girls Inc., an Owensboro non-for-profit.

“It’s about empowering young girls and women to seek their highest aspirations. I’ve spoken to girls about the dangers of social media, and how to deal with issues on the internet. It’s important to be aware of what you are putting on the internet, and knowing that nothing ever truly goes away. They need to know when something is wrong, and to seek out a responsible adult to address any issue that they have.”

Murdock was also nominated for News4U Magazine’s 20 Under 40 in July. News4U is a free publication available at 450+ locations in Evansville, Owensboro, Henderson and Newburgh and feature a monthly calendar of area entertainment and events and a comprehensive full service restaurant guide, as well as articles and reviews featuring local and visiting talent in music, art, theater, comedy, & sports. 20 Under 40 was a combined list of the most influential people in music, sports, food & drink, fashion, and being social in the Tri-State.
