Online PR News – 09-August-2013 – Richmond Virgina – Although Eastwood is new to Richmond, the builder has a long history and highly favorable reputation among homebuilders. Eastwood Homes was founded in 1977 by Joseph K. Stewart, and remains privately held. The company is consistently named among the top 50 homebuilders nationwide. Joe Stewartâ€™s son and business partner, Clark Stewart, is looking forward to the opportunities presented in the Richmond market and sees great opportunity for Eastwood Homes. â€śProspective homebuyers in the Richmond area will welcome the quality construction, exceptional customer service, and solid reputation that Eastwood will bring to the market. We appreciate the history and culture of the area, and the good nature of the people of Richmond. It will be a pleasure to do business in the area.â€ť
Assisting with the first efforts of Eastwood Homes is Cindy Jez, Vice President of New Homes and Regional Marketing for Long & FosterÂ® Real Estate, Inc. Cindy commented, â€śLong & Foster Real Estate is proud to launch Eastwood Homes into the greater Richmond market. The commitment that Eastwood Homes is making in this area is a strong indicator of the growing strength of the new homes industry. We feel certain that their portfolio and pricing will be well accepted in this area; Richmond will be a very viable market for them to continue to grow their company.â€ť
The first Richmond community to celebrate a grand opening under the Eastwood name will be Watermark, located in Chesterfield County. The homes offered by Eastwood will be a well-suited and welcome addition to the already established neighborhood. Planned amenities for Watermark include a proposed clubhouse, an outdoor 25-meter competition pool, competition-style tennis facilities, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Construction of their first model home is currently underway. The Cypress, one of the builderâ€™s most popular floor plans, features a first floor bedroom and full bath, three second-floor bedrooms, and a third floor bedroom or bonus room option. The plan features an innovative open kitchen, ample storage, and starts in the $270â€™s.
Following on the heels of the Watermark Development, Eastwood Homes will break ground in Magnolia Green, a sought-after golf-course community in nearby Moseley, Virginia. The company plans to quickly progress in the Richmond division, and open one to two more communities by the end of the year.
Eastwood Homes has been highly successful in its other divisions, and hopes to build upon this success in Richmond. The company has been awarded with numerous accolades over the years. In 2012, the company was given the â€śMaster Craftsmanship Awardâ€ť by American eWarranty. Eastwood Homes has been recognized as an Accredited Business by the Better Business Bureau for the last 27 years. Several divisions have been recognized with J.D. Power Awards for Exceptional Customer Service. Most recently, the company was named the 2012 Builder of the Year by the Charlotte Homebuilders Association. Being honored as the Builder of the Year is a particularly prestigious achievement, and a true testament to Eastwoodâ€™s ability to provide the best home-buying experience possible.
