2019 Jagoe Homes Year in Review
We had an explosive year at Jagoe Homes in 2019 and are expecting even more from 2020. 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.
What brings us the most joy year in and year out, is the fact that we are able to build new Jagoe Homes for families in Louisville, Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana. 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.
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.
Jagoe Homes introduced a new, interactive Design Tool!
Our future homeowners can now Design their new Jagoe Home using our Interactive Online Design Tool! We were very excited to give our customers a way to visualize what their new Jagoe Home will look like once the exterior is completed. Additionally, it allows them to click on features of a home that are not included in the base home plan. For example, if a customer wanted to add a fireplace, covered patio or drop zone in the family entry, this is easily visualized by clicking through the options that are available for that home plan. Start designing your new Jagoe Home online!
Jagoe Homes is awarded with the Foundation Builder Award and the Platinum Builder Award from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty!
Jagoe Homes was awarded the Foundation Builder Award for a lifetime achievement of exceptional customer service and protection for homebuyers. In addition, Jagoe Homes was also awarded the Platinum Builder Award for outstanding performance for skilled craftsmanship and improving quality of housing in the homebuilding industry! As a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty builder member, Jagoe Homes is honored to provide every home we build with 10 full years of structural home warranty protection from the nation’s leading home warranty company.
Jagoe Homes attended the International Builders Show in Las Vegas.
The International Builders Show (IBS) is a world-wind for Jagoe Homes employees. This year we were able to take all upper management and the marketing 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. This is where we met with Rendering House, the company that powers our new Interactive Design Tool!
We opened 10 New Communities & New Sections of Existing Communities.
With the closing of The Vinings Subdivision in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Jagoe Homes opened its new community, Magnolia Hills! At the Grand Release Event, we sold eight home sites to now Jagoe Homeowners. Magnolia Hills was a cool project for our Design & merchandising Manager, Amelia Laster, because she was able to Reuse & Redesign with a lot of the furniture from The Vinings!
We also opened Brook Stone Estates in Jeffersontown, Kentucky! This is a unique Jagoe Homes community in Louisville because it’s in the heart of J-Town and offers 1-Story & 2-Story homes with Basement options. We have sold several home sites in Brook Stones Estates with many remaining for other families in J-Town!
At the end of September, we hosted the Blevins Farm Grand Release Event, where 4 home sites were sold! The occasion launched home site sales for our newest community in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Blevins Farm, which features single-family homes, is located in the Three Springs Road Corridor. The new community reflects the beauty of T.J. and Georgia Blevins’ famed Hackney bred horses. With home sites selling briskly at the well-attended Grand Release Event, the community’s remaining home sites will sell out soon!
Lastly on the brand, new communities front, we opened Lone Oak Village! Residents of Highview enjoy the balanced lifestyle the area offers: a peaceful community just minutes from all the exciting activities of Louisville. Highview itself is host to its own array of excellent shopping, dining, schools, and more! Jagoe Homes is proud to bring you Lone Oak Village, our newest Louisville community you’ll love to call home.
We also opened several new sections of existing communities…
- Cayman Ridge – Evansville, IN
- The Orchard North – Evansville, IN
- Chadwick at Berkshire & Eastwick at Berkshire – Newburgh, IN
- Deer Valley: Timberlake at Deer Valley, The Bluffs at Deer Valley & Cherry Blossom at Deer Valley – Utica, KY
- Brookfield & Edgewater at Brookfield – Owensboro, KY
- The Legends at Bluegrass Commons – Owensboro, KY
Jagoe Homes participated and sponsored in community events!
2019 brought on another amazing year at Friday After 5 in Owensboro! Friday After 5 is Where the Weekend Begins! We enjoyed every Friday during the 16-week, free concert series on the Jagoe Homes Patio Stage at the RiverPark Center for family fun in Owensboro, Kentucky! This award-winning, summer-long festival celebrated its 23rd season with more than 60 bands and added another new event and venue to the Friday night party series.
We are BIG Bluegrass lovers, so we also enjoyed another year of sponsorship at ROMP! ROMP is a 4-day music festival celebrating the roots and branches of Bluegrass music. Hosted by the Bluegrass Music Museum & Hall of Fame, ROMP is held annually in Yellow Creek Park in Owensboro, Kentucky.
Jagoe Homes also participated in the 2019 Gaslight Festival in historic J-Town! The Gaslight Festival, presented by The Chamber Jeffersontown, brings an estimated 200,000 visitors to Jeffersontown every year. The festival now hosts a motorcycle rally, car show, golf scramble, 5K, parade, balloon glow, children’s playground, live entertainment and over 200 arts, crafts and commercial booths.
Of course, Jagoe Homes participated in Parade of Homes!
We kicked off 2019 withe the Spring Tour of Homes in Evansville & Newburgh. Sometime after that in May, we were a part of the Tour of New Homes, which is a free event that features new construction homes and new home communities throughout the Louisville area.
The main events for Parade of Homes occurs in June. Evansville & Newburgh kick off parade season with Chefs on Parade – a really neat event in which each of the seven participating Parade of Homes entries are paired with a local Chef who prepares their fine cuisine at a parade home! We opened SIX Jagoe Homes during the 2019 SIBA Parade of Homes!
Shortly after, we opened seven Jagoe Homes in the 2019 Owensboro Parade of Homes, presented by the Home Builders Association of Owensboro (HBAO)!
The Bowling Green Parade of Homes occurs a little later in September, and is presented by the Builders Association of South Central Kentucky. We opened two Jagoe Model Homes for this tour, including our brand-new Model Home in Magnolia Hills!
To close off the year, the Fall Tour of Homes in Owensboro and Evansville & Newburgh occurred at the end of October. Both parades were hosted on the same weekend. We opened several Jagoe Homes for the public to tour in the Homebuilders Association of Owensboro‘s Fall Tour and the SIBA Fall Tour of Homes.
We took home several awards in 2019!
In addition to the 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty awards, we also received…
