Skagit Valley Featured in Sunset Magazine!

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

I love it when our beautiful area gets noticed!  Sunset Magazine wrote a wonderful feature article on the Skagit Valley and the Tulip Festival that is going on through the entire month of April.  Click here to read the article.

Come visit us at one of our new home communities,  Montreaux in Mount Vernon or Fairway Point in Oak Harbor, during the month of April and we will give you 2 free passes to Tulip Town.  What an excellent way to spend a day…view the tulips, experience the Skagit Valley and see some Landed Gentry homes too!  For more details on our open house hours and locations visit or call Kendra at 360-661-3821.

Steve Baughn in our office is an amazing photographer.  He e-mailed me these pictures of the tulips last year and I thought you might enjoy seeing them too!

Happy Spring Everyone!


Landed Gentry Featured In Skagit Business Pulse!

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

It’s always nice when a small builder like Landed Gentry is mentioned in the news.  We were so excited to learn that Brian is featured on the front cover of this months Skagit Business Pulse talking about the green building practices Landed Gentry implements on a daily basis.  The Business Pulse did a prominent article titled, “Built Green Homes, Quality construction with less ecological impact.”   In addition to Landed Gentry, they interviewed other local builders and how they are implementing the “Built Green” trend that reaching Skagit and Island counties.

The majority of our homes at Landed Gentry, whether officially certified “Built Green” or not, qualify for a two star rating.    Being good stewards of our environment while still providing affordable homes for our community is important to us…it was great being able to share our concept with the readers of the Business Pulse.

Again… the team that makes a difference

As I mentioned last week, I’m really proud of our team at Landed Gentry and the way our staff contributes to the community. Well, for the second week in a row the contributions of our team made the news! Jeremy Fogle and Mike Anshutz got some great recognition for their contributions to a project at the Help House in Oak Harbor. This food bank makes a real difference in the lives for many families on Whidbey Island. Several of our trade partners contributed to the project as well. Great work guys!
More great press on how the people at Landed Gentry are making a difference in the lives of people our region. Way to go Jeremy and Mike!
