After deciding that they were ready to start a family, Jordan and Mackenzie felt it was time to buy their first single-family home. As an employee, Jordan was familiar with the quality of homes and floor plans offered by Richmond American in Jacksonville. The couple would occasionally walk through communities when visiting with coworkers, which is how they discovered the Slate model. They were particularly drawn to the Slate’s ranch-style layout and the fact that it offers four bedrooms and three bathrooms: an ideal size for a burgeoning family.
When asked which room they are most excited about in their new home, Jordan mentioned enjoying Florida’s picturesque outdoor living on the relaxing covered patio and in the yard with their dog, Finn. Inside the home, both Jordan and Mackenzie appreciate the Slate’s open layout, featuring a large kitchen and accessible dining and great rooms for family gatherings.
Jordan describes being on the other side of the sales experience as “different, for sure” and says that knowing firsthand what buyers experience has helped him to be able to speak more knowledgably about homebuilding. Andrea, a sales associate, and Dan, a superintendent, took great care of Jordan and Mackenzie, guiding them through the homebuying journey and answering any questions they had.
When recommending Richmond American to friends and family, Jordan emphasizes the “great service, communities, floor plans and options for personalizing,” which is why he would consider purchasing his next home from Richmond American.
When asked what advice Jordan would give to someone who is thinking of purchasing a new home, he said that especially in this market, it is important to be patient and choose a builder that you can trust. We are very glad that Jordan chose to build his dream home with Richmond American!
Jordan and Mackenzie are expecting their first child in July. We sincerely congratulate them and wish them many years of happiness and family fun in their new home!
