PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Rich Achor – ARENA Builders

December Came Around Quickly December 2010 - sure came around quickly. How was it for your business? For you personally? How you answer that reflects why it was... what it was. Huh? If you answered it was great, I would be willing to bet it was because you expected it to be, planned for it to be, and saw the opportunity (s) that existed for you and your business. If it was bad, guess what? Self-fulfilling prophecy. We can all look back and see missed opportunities in the past year, even the most successful among us. We get to choose if that is our focus or the opportunities we realized are our focus. People want to do business with successful people; people want the busiest people working on their ”deal”. Sharing ‘woe is me” tales may make you feel better ( I really don’t know why) but they don’t bring you business. Personally, I can chose to look at this past month and focus on the fact that for whatever reason, I have seen realtors bring custom buyers to builders that are famous for disappearing after closing day, or have had to have 10’s of thousands of dollars of structural repairs done to their previously built properties, or to builders that are known to be failing financially, while the financially sound, always there for the unexpected warranty call, and/or the builders with the spotless records don’t get contacted by these realtors and their buyers. OR I can chose to look at the recent uptick in showings of speculative property and the numerous recent contracts on existing, speculative, and custom homes and see a light that is starting to get brighter. I chose the latter and believe the brighter light is the brightness of the future and not the headlight of an approaching train. (Maybe I am just not bright)

Let’s take a minute in December to remember those that have passed from our organization, (Wade Jurney, Sr., E. J. Hanes), we will miss them. Let’s take a minute to thank those that made our lives better, richer, or more successful; my list would more than fill this page. Let’s take a minute and wish those taking on our leadership roles for the coming year ....unbridled success; to “the Steves” and Best Wishes for a GREAT Year. I want to thank each of you for the opportunity to serve you as President of certainly the best HBA in the state and most likely the nation. It was an honor for me. We have had some great success as an HBA this year because of many of your efforts to ensure it was so. Our organization is only as strong as our members who put the time and effort in to make it so. We have some of the best volunteers and certainly the best staff of any HBA. Please continue to give of your time and energies to our HBA. I warned you in my first of these letters that I would likely upset a few of you with my comments and hopefully make a couple of you think. If I was successful in making a few of you think about a thing or two you had not had time to think about, I am happy. If I have upset any of you, I am sorry, but was I wrong? It is early to start making New Year’s resolutions but let’s as an association make this one; 2011 is going to be a good year; we expect it to be, we are planning for it to be and we will make it happen by staying focused and in the game. Thank you for letting me be part of your 2010.

REMODELERS UPDATE Chuck Hicks, President, NAHBR, HBAWS Wow! What a quick 12 months! Its hard to believe this is my last month as President of the Remodelers Council. It has been my great pleasure to serve you during this time. We have seen lots of changes this past year - new codes, new lead paint requirements, a change in volume and also in mix of project work - overall it has been quite a challenge this year. I applaud all of you who have maintained your active role in the Remodelers Council and in Home Builders through the economic downturn. I want to thank you for all your support this past year. Remodelers, associates, and especially the HBA staff have made this past year a success for our council. I look forward to the leadership role passing to one of our associates - Mike Scardina of The Kitchen Center. Mike will do an outstanding job as leader of our group. Thank you to all who assisted with the stage setup and Christmas Tree assembly for the Brenner’s Children Hospital fundraiser. Rob Powell did an excellent job again organizing and driving this community service activity. We are still exploring options for our Showcase of Remodeled Homes for 2011, so please respond to the questionnaire that the HBA is sending to members. We need your feedback to choose the right option that will result in the biggest benefit for our group and our charity. We look forward to seeing all of you on December 7th for our annual Christmas dinner at the Deacon Tower. Merry Christmas!

We protect the dreams you build. And, at Piedmont Protective Services, we do it using the most advanced systems available. Call us today and learn why more than 60 builders in our community have chosen us to protect what they’ve worked so hard to build. Piedmont Protective Services Bill Wrenn: Owner, 336.771.2389 We can also assist you with home theatre, multi-room stereos, central vacuum, LCD and plasma television sales and installation. 4

HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION Getting the Most From Your HBA Membership

ASSOCIATE GUEST COLUMN

A Guide for Associate Members

T

When building relationships with builders, let common sense and courtesy be your guide he principal reason most associate members join the home builders association is to get business from the builder members. However, it is not always easy and it is never automatic. Membership does not give an associate member the right to a builder’s business. What it does, rather, is give him the privilege to seek business from builders through specific opportunities. Many builders in turn will try to do business with an associate member, provided there is a favorable balance to him in price, service, and quality. Consider some of these basic principles in building your relationships with builder members: Things TO DO: 1) visit the builder regularly with good reason --- do not waste his time with idle gossip. Do not underestimate his interest in new products. 2) Keep his literature current. The builder needs current information if he is going to use your product --- not only to show his customers, but for other suppliers or subcontractors that may be involved in installing your products. 3) Keep the builder informed if there are pricing or product changes. There has never been a builder who liked price increases, but they dislike surprises even more. Timely notice will allow him to adjust his budget. 4) Let him know immediately if a product is discontinued or going to be discontinued, and what his replacement options are. 5) Tell him immediately if a product or service is going to be delivered late. Stay in touch with him so you know when you and/or your product are needed. Remember that other suppliers and subcontractors may be affected when you are late. 6) Sell quality products and do not compromise your reputation with inferior products or services. 7) Be honest with the builder about what features or benefits he may gain by paying a little more. If your offering has deficiencies, tell him in advance so he can make adjustments. 8) Do not waste the builder’s time --- take care of his needs quickly. When you make an appointment, be on time or call to say you will be late. He has to deal with a lot of suppliers and subs. 9) Be knowledgeable. Try to understand his business. Is he building luxury homes or affordable housing? Stay informed of trends in the building industry and be a source of information to him. Find answers to his questions. Reliable information will keep him coming back to you. 10) Get actively involved in the home builders association. Just as the builder makes his living from the building industry --so, too, do you. Getting involved not only benefits the industry as a whole, but also gets you the recognition you need from builder members. Regular meeting attendance will give you additional visibility. Devote some of your advertising budget to placing ads in the association’s newsletter. 11) Encourage pride and service throughout your company. You are judged by the attitude of everyone who works for you. Polite administrative staff, accounting staff, and delivery people are greatly appreciated. However, DO NOT: 1) Speak negatively about your competitor or his product or services. He may be a personal friend of the builder or even a fellow member of the home builders association. We all have to prove ourselves to be accepted. You will not succeed by speaking negatively about your competition. 2) Also, the builder may have been using your competitor’s product or service. By speaking negatively, you are saying that the builder was not very smart for using it. 3) In either case, you are going to make the builder defensive. Instead, focus on making positive statements about your products or service. Give him references of other builders who have been satisfied with your product, service, quality, and price. 4) Misrepresent the facts (or, to put it bluntly, DON’T LIE). Whether it’s about a delivery, what you or your product can do, or about price, never become an untrustworthy businessperson. 5) Do not tell the builder you are giving him the best price in town when you may have given someone else a better price. Prices can vary based on quantity, delivery, and a variety of other factors, and builders know that. They do not want to be lied to any more than you do. Bottom line, selling to builders takes a lot of common sense and courtesy. Your membership in the home builders association is a tremendous asset to your business. By applying these basic rules to your sales strategies and actively participating in the association, you can greatly enrich your builder relationships, increase your sales opportunities, and grow as a consummate professional.

GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS REPORT Nancy Gould - Joint Governmental Affairs Director

Local Government - Get Involved in 2011 There are numerous reasons why learning more about our local governments and being involved in local politics are smart moves for us personally and professionally. That’s why we work hard at making it as easy as possible for our members to better understand how our local governments work and to participate more in the important discussions and decisions place in our local counties and communities. Below are three quick ways to help you take the opportunity to “Get Involved in 2011!” I hope you will take advantage of all of them.

Students are chosen through an application process. Class size is limited. It is a 13-week course and meets once a week on Thursdays. Classes are from 6 to 9 p.m. The classes meet at City Hall and various other locations. The next session begins February 3, 2011 .Application deadline is December 31, 2010, 5:00 p.m. To learn more and to apply go to the City of Winston-Salem website or click on: http://www.ci.winston-salem.nc.us/Home/Departments/ MarketingAndCommunications/CWSU/Articles/CWSUniversity Partners in Housing UPDATE, our Joint Govt. Affairs newsletter, lets you quickly find information about what’s happening on the national, state, and local government levels. It is updated several times a month and can be accessed on the HBAWS and WSRAR websites and in the WSRAR weekly, Wednesday E-Letter. Apply to serve on a committee, board or commission. Although we publish in the UPDATE when there are seats available on local citizen groups and boards, most of our local governments encourage citizens to go ahead and submit applications at the beginning of each calendar year. Below is a chart that provides you with a phone number and the link to each local government’s website, where you can find more information about local boards get the necessary form that must be completed and returned if you wish to be considered as an appointee.
