Carrie’s Reach Grand Opening Event

Carrie’s Reach Grand Opening Event

Thank you to everyone who attended the Carrie’ s Reach Grand Opening.  What a fun afternoon!  Guests were escorted to the check-in table on golf carts up arrival and picked up Carrie’s Reach mason jars that they could fill with their favorite beverage, use it while they were there and then take it home with them as a souvenir from the day.  Thank you to our preferred lenders- Robby Oakes, Kerri Doyle and Patrick O’Connor, who sponsored the transportation for our guests.  The sounds of Chris Hendricks filled the air as guests toured the Chamborde, St. James and Beaufort plans and learned about the homes that can be built in Carrie’s Reach starting from the $490’s.

Chef Jessie Scott of Annie Bells Catering cooked up an unbelievable lunch – spring salad, sweet potato ham biscuits, southern shrimp and grits and bbq sliders.  Appetizers included red velvet waffle and chicken skewers and stuffed mushroom caps.  Wanda Long served up her award winning apple and peach cobbler – yum-o!  What a fun way to tour a brand new community and take a break from the office. And congratulations to Kay LaVelle with Allen Tate Realtors for winning the $100 Visa Gift Card Drawing!

Carrie’s Reach will feature 17 large one acre+ wooded hom esites in North Raleigh right off of Creedmoor Road and Mount Vernon Church Road.  Two cul-de-sacs will make up this beautiful community and it is sure to sell quickly.  Customers can choose from our existing portfolio of plans, customize those plans or we can design a plan to fit their needs.  The Homes by Dickerson iPad/iPhone App make it easy to design your home and look through many of our home plans.  You can download the app by clicking here.

Kick-off the New Year Social at Tobacco Road in Chapel Hill

Kick-off the New Year Social at Tobacco Road in Chapel Hill

We had a great time last night at the new Tobacco Road in East 54 in Chapel Hill socializing with great Chapel Hill REALTORs!  Everyone enjoyed catching up after the holidays and the concensus in the room is that 2013 is going to be a great year!  Lots of activity in the market place and many agents were saying that they really need more homes to come on the market because inventory is so low.  It is a great time to sell your home and think about buying a new high performance Homes by Dickerson home!

Here are some pictures of the event:

We were happy to announce that our new iPad app is now also available on the iPhone and will soon be embedded on our website for customers to be able to use and design their homes.  You can download it from the apple store, or by clicking here.  This will enable them to envision what their new home could look like and get them.  We will also have some great inventory for buyers coming into the spring market and are also happy to help buyers build a custom home to fit their lifestyle and needs.  You can stay up to date on our available inventory by checking our website or contacting us at info@homesbydickerson.com
