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

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!

Legion Time Capsule Opening 012Yesterday, Jagoe Homes had the opportunity and the honor of witnessing the James L. Yates American Legion, Post #9 opening of their historical time capsule from 1935.  Jagoe Homes, along with the help of Yeiser Excavating, delivered the corner stone to the American Legion only weeks before.  Upon removing the corner stone from the original American Legion building, the rumored time capsule was discovered encased inside of the stone.  This was a surprise, since no one, including the current members of the American Legion, knew for a fact that the corner stone contained this incredible piece of history.
