Landmark Fine Homes believes in giving back. This year we are collecting school supplies for local schools and one of your favorite teachers at all our Model Homes.
Here are the rules to get your favorite teacher nominated:
You can nominate the Teacher once per day
Nominations will end August 1st, 2018
To nominate them it is easy!
All names will be entered into the drawing for the "Favorite Teacher"
We will draw the name of the winner LIVE on August 11th at one of our Community Events- "Donuts in the Drive" that will take place at our Model Homes.
The more you nominate the teacher the more chances they have to win!
You can drop the school supplies by at one of our Model Homes in The Reserve at Valencia, The Springs at Valencia, The Springs at Skyline Trails, The Preserve at Parkside, Carrington Lakes, The Springs at Greenleaf Trails, Little River Trails or Montoro Ridge.
You have picked everything out so the fun can now begin! Meet our Construction Team. It is time to turn over the floor plans and selections to this group. Their job is to take all those ideas and selections you made and bring them to life.
Before we break ground on the project, you will have a Pre-Construction Meeting at our office where you will meet your Construction Superintendent. This is a opportunity for them to be introduced to you as a homeowner as well as your floor plans and selections. They will be briefed on all the details of the home so they have a clear vision of what you are wanting. From this point on they will become part of your family! They will be one of the main sources of contact throughout your build. Their job is to schedule all the trades, get inspections and make sure everything is followed on the plans. They are also the eyes of the company to make sure not only all your selections are fulfilled but everything behind the walls are built soundly and energy efficiently.
During the build of your home, Landmark Fine Homes will schedule several meeting on your jobsite. This gives us the opportunity to educate you on what is behind the walls and get feedback from you on how you want certain areas of your home to look like.
You are getting close to moving into your new home. Only a few more steps and it will be complete. Check back in next week to see what's next!
As we approach the New Year many of you have made some Resolutions. Listed below are the Top 10 Resolutions according to About.com
1. Spend More Time With Family and Friends
2. Fit in Fitness
3. Tame the Bulge
4. Quit Smoking
5. Enjoy Life More
6. Quit Drinking
7. Get out of Debt
8. Learn Something New
9. Help Others
10. Get Organized
As we look at the list there are several items we can help with! Many people decide to buy a new home to create a better life for themselves and/or their families. Many pick out floor plans so they can have the room to Spend More Time With Their Families and Friends. Several of our homes are open concept and can create that family time we are all looking for. This will also allow you to Enjoy Life More.
Carrington Lakes and Valencia both offer walking trails and community pools while Belleau Wood and The Ranches give you the quiet acreage living that you are able to walk around the community. By moving to one of these communities you would be able to Fit In Fitness and hopefully Tame The Bulge.
By buying a new home you might think you would not be able to Get Out of Debt but the truth is there is not a better time to buy a house than right now. When you choose to purchase a home now instead of waiting in the future when interest rates would rise you are actually saving yourself a lot of money thus getting out of debt quicker!
If you have never built a new home with Landmark than this would certainly take care of Learning Something New. At Landmark, we make it easy! Everything is broken down in steps so nothing is overwhelming. We have a design studio at our office in Norman where you will meet with our Design Studio Staff Person to walk you through the process.
Getting Organized is another easy goal! Landmark is a custom home builder so we can help you design your home to make it the most organized it can possibly be.
At Landmark we make Helping Others part of our company atmosphere! Every year we have a Thanksmas Party in December as a way to collect toys and canned goods for the Salvation Army. We also participate in Relay for Life- Moore every year to help raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society. Our customers are invited to both of these events!
That only leaves 2 items for you. Quit Smoking and Quit Drinking. These may not even be on your list so I think 8 out of 10 of the Top Resolutions being taken care of by purchasing a Landmark Home is pretty good!
