Meet the Team
Alan Banks
President and Founder Meet Alan Banks

Alan Banks

President and Founder

Alan has walked on Great Wall of China, went skydiving and SCUBA Diving.

He says he will definitely not do one of those again. Professionally, he proudly served as the 2018 NC Home Builders Association President and State Representative to National Association of Home Builders. He is graduate of Virginia Tech, loves any ACC Football game, seeks out local, quaint coffee shops and is a home beer brewer.

Why I Like home building? Our industry builds safe places for dads to read books to his little girl, to celebrate report cards, blow out birthday candles with grandma, bandage skinned knees and help kids grow up. No other industry has this responsibility and I am glad to be part of it!

Chris Covington
Builder Meet Chris Covington

Chris Covington


Chris builds things,  grows things, and has two, yes “two” Harley Davidson motorcycles

Caring for things comes naturally to Chris. He raises Boer Goats, has LOTS of chickens, and carefully counted out to us the number of tomato plants in his garden which is 14 along with other varieties of plants. As far as those Harleys? One is for touring and long trips, the other he built himself. Wow.

Speaking of growing things: “Family is everything to me.” he says. “I’ve raised three girls here and one boy ranging in ages from 18 to 27, here in my native York County, SC.”   … “If I would have to say one thing in particular about myself I would say I passionately appreciate craftsmanship and doing things right the first time.”

Paul Stanger
McLean Neighborhood Specialist Meet Paul Stanger

Paul Stanger

McLean Neighborhood Specialist

Paul’s family is dachshund lovers.

Raising kids has been replaced with raising wiener dogs. Being a Minnesota native, his allegiance steadfastly lies with the Vikings on Sundays. Ask him about meeting Dale Earnhardt while working to fix his pinball machine. Interesting story.

Paul enjoys helping people imagine the spaces that they will call home and then seeing the joy through to completion.

Judi Melton

Judi Melton

Neighborhood Specialist

Judi is our former banker turned new home specialist.

Her banking experience included the prestigious Six Sigma Master Black Belt designation which she now brings those skills and  efficiencies into Evans Coghill Homes. Judi is a proud North Carolina native and has been calling Charlotte home for 20+ years.

Why I like home building? I love being involved in the process of helping clients find the home that works for their family. A home that is a sanctuary from the rest of the world and a place where special memories are made.

Taylor Bennett
Project Manager Meet Taylor Bennett

Taylor Bennett

Project Manager

If Taylor could live in a tent by a mountain stream and fly fish all day, he would.

But, instead he is chasing his second passion – high performance home building. Taylor brings to Evans Coghill Homes an insatiable appetite for pushing the envelope of how to build a better, more comfortable, more energy efficient home today. He continues to study processes and challenges all of us to go further and achieve better performance results for our homes. If you want to meet him for lunch one day, make it BBQ from Ray Nathans in Belmont. He will be there.

JT played football for the East Carolina Pirates and today is our resident college football expert.

He is a second generation home builder following in his father’s footsteps. JT is a licensed real estate agent but has now gone from finding someone just the right home to building it for them.
