The next participant in our series of team member blogs is Tracy Olson. She’s just joined us as a New Home Specialist at Riverwalk. In that role, Tracy wears many hats, reviewing home plans, working with the builder, walking plans, meeting with potential buyers, interacting with customers, helping them select home sites, plans, colors. If you’re coming to visit Riverwalk, there’s a good chance you’ll be meeting Tracy!
What brought you to Evans Coghill Homes?
I found Evans Coghill through a networking service, BSI (Builder Services Incorporated). I was looking to work for a smaller builder that gives a higher level of customer service, more control over the process, and more of a personal relationship. And Evans Coghill was just what I was looking for.
What’s your favorite part of the job so far?
Following someone through the process, from contract to move-in. I like helping somebody make one of the biggest decisions in their life, and watching it evolve through the process to completion.
What sparked your interest in home building?
I’ve been around the industry all my life. I grew up in Wisconsin, where my dad has his own concrete construction company. I helped him manage the office all through high school and college. After I graduated from University of Wisconsin, White Water, I worked with Cal-Atlantic Homes. My husband has been in industry for about 20 years. He’s a sales manager for another new home builder.
What do you do on a day off?
I spend time with my husband and our two daughters. I’ve also been a Zumba instructor for going on 10 years. I love the fitness industry… it goes hand in hand with helping people.
Do you live by a certain philosophy?
I face life and its challenges by following the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you.
