2016 TOUR OF HOMES

East Alabama Business Resource Group

Welcome

On behalf of the East Alabama Women’s Council of Realtors®, welcome to the 9th annual Tour of Homes! This Tour is an opportunity for us to introduce you to some of the outstanding new construction offerings from local builders in the Auburn and Opelika area. This event is free to the public. The East Alabama Women’s Council of Realtors® was formed in 2006 and our Tour of Homes has been a yearly tradition. One of our goals was to showcase that real estate is local, and offer consumers a snapshot of the latest trends in new construction homes that are available in our AuburnOpelika market. Another important goal for our members was to give back to our community. Proceeds from the Tour support a scholarship endowment our chapter of the WCR created with Auburn University’s College of Architecture, Design and Construction. This endowment seeks to recognize and support outstanding students and encourages growth, entrepreneurship and leadership in the fields of Building Science and Architecture. We are very proud to be a part of that. This magazine is your guidebook to the homes we are featuring in this year’s Tour. It includes a tear-out map to each home with a QR code through which you can access a driving map from your phone or tablet! There is also information about each of the featured builders, homes, and subdivisions in this year’s Tour of Homes. A directory of Tour participants and of Women’s Council of Realtors® members is provided for you as well. Please feel free to contact any of our Women’ s Council of Realtors® members at any time if you have questions or need assistance with home buying or building in Auburn/Opelika. A special “thank you” to our WCR committee members for their contributions to the success of the 2016 Tour of Homes. I’d like to give special acknowledgement to Karen Turner and Penny Johnson who co-chaired this year’s event. Our local chapter of the Women’s Council of Realtors® is comprised of successful, professional Realtors® in East Alabama who have a strong commitment to this community. Without them this Tour and the endowment would not be possible.

The most valuable square inch in real estate. Why wear your REALTOR® pin? Because three out of four consumers would choose to work with a REALTOR® rather than an agent who is not a member.* Simply wearing your pin lets everyone know that you’re a REALTOR®, a member of the

National Association of REALTORS®. It makes a first impression that shows potential clients how knowledgeable and valuable you are to their real estate transaction. Proudly wear the pin and always place the REALTOR® logo on your materials. It’s a small thing, but it can make a big difference.

WCR Tour Proceeds Provide Scholarships to Students at Auburn University’s College of Architecture, Design and Construction - Ashley Durham

In 2006, the East Alabama Chapter of the Women’s Council of REALTORS was formed. At that time, the members saw a need for a tour of homes in our community, as many surrounding communities were offering. In conjunction with the National Association of REALTORS, our goal was to encourage buyers to realize that real estate is local, and offer the consumer a way to view a snapshot of what types of homes in varying price points were available in their local market. Over the years, the tour of homes has transformed into an excellent resource for builders to display their creativity and new building concepts each year, while still portraying to the consumer housing options in a variety of price ranges and increase market interest and activity during the height of the selling season. While the tour of homes raises funds to keep the Women’s Council of REALTORS operational, it also gives members an opportunity to give back to the overall industry financially. Members sought to encourage females to establish a career in a field related to the housing industry, therefore, we reached out to the College of Architecture, Design and Construction and established the scholarship fund! e members of WCR feel that it is important to encourage growth in education of industry professionals, and with an industry that has so few female professionals, it was the goal of the members to help encourage young students to gain an education that will last a lifetime and help build a community!
