Staff Spotlight: Jason Underhill
Building or purchasing a new home is a milestone decision — one not many take lightly.
And rightfully so. Homebuyers embark on a series of high-stakes constructing and financing decisions and trust their time and hard-earned money to homebuilding professionals tasked with creating their dream home.
Thankfully for Landmark Fine Homes, the company’s sales manager, Jason Underhill, understands the importance of getting it right. He knows the decision isn’t only about money, location and time investments. It’s ultimately about the family calling this new house their home.
“Landmark Fine Homes is truly a family. We understand when people come into our model homes it’s a big decision that will take some time,” Underhill said. “It’s a process, and we want to be there for those families and do whatever we can to put them at ease with the decision and know they’re going to be blessed in the end.”
Underhill, who is a family friend of Landmark Fine Homes owners Dan and Amy Reeves, got his start picking up trash on job sites and helping with general home repair duties when the company was founded in 2000. After earning his business degree from Oklahoma City University, he became Landmark’s full-time estimator, drawing up budgets for homebuilding plans. During this time, Jason also built several homes, helping him expand his knowledge in construction science.
As the company continued to grow, the need for a sales manager became evident and Underhill rose to the occasion. He now supervises eight new-home consultants.
You’ll typically find Underhill in the Landmark offices; however, he does spend some time out in the field. His main role is to support the sales staff, so he often accompanies his team members when they sit down with clients. He uses the knowledge he’s gained from working in each area of the company over the past 20 years. Continuing education is also important to him. That’s why he leads weekly coaching and training sessions with his team.
His team is successful because they genuinely care about and love people. In fact, this is what Underhill believes sets the company culture apart.
“They take the time to get to know our customers’ families, their pets, you name it — if it’s important to them, we want to know about it because we want to design the home to fit each family’s needs. They take that extra time to ask the right questions and figure out the motivations behind why the family is thinking about moving. We understand moving into a new home can be stressful, and there’s a lot of moving parts. We want to be there to stand beside them and walk them through the hurdles they have to jump through to get into their new home.”
When Underhill isn’t working, he’s attending church, hunting and spending time with his wife, Michele, and daughters, Charlotte, Hazel and Evelynn.
