Announcement - Home building again

We are so excited to be making this announcement finally -

Julie and I had the opportunity for 10 years to build homes in Northwest Indiana, mainly for first time home buyers. We loved the business and were blessed to build for over 200 families.

In 2007, sadly the mortgage business went haywire and we were left standing with far too much inventory and almost zero home buyers. We won't go into all the gory details but our lives were turned upside down overnite and it has taken us until now, almost three years later, to make this announcement!

Green Pointe Homes, our forray back into home building, will be based in Valparaiso. For the time being we're going to go slow, working one on one with our customers. Since Steve is trained as a mortgage banker he will be working with first time buyers, buyers who need assistance with credit repair or saving for down payments. You can check out his daily post on Northwest Indiana Mortgages, for rates and ideas on how to prepare to buy your home.

So, without further adieu, let's talk shop. You can contact Steve at 219-465-8352 or by email anytime. Let's meet and talk about how we can work together, our family with your family.

Thanks RG, similar to lots of startups the biggie is we need to get some customers. Referrals definitely accepted :-)

All the best to you my friend!! Let us know if there is anything at all we can do. Looking forward to hearing and seeing some pictures of all the homes you will build.

Let's make a deal, you can have Porter county and we'll take Lake County...cross referrals seem to work best! It's nice to have builders you can refer business to that don't make sense for us to build for. In the end, the goal is to keep the customer happy!

Jeff, I think an even better idea is to look at market niches ... back in the day when Porter County was really going we were able to look at a group of four builders that each really dominated a niche. Let's talk soon.
