Selection & Design Manager

Industry Veteran or Newbie? I was a newbie when I started at CCH as an intern, but I have worked my way up over the past few years. 

BCCH (Before Capitol City Homes)… When I first moved to NC, I worked as an Assistant Director of Admissions for the Art Institute of Raleigh/Durham. I enjoyed encouraging students to follow their dreams, and realized I wanted to turn my focus towards something I was more passionate about. While going back to school for design, I interned for an interior designer and worked as a freelance designer.

Homebuilding Superpower… My attention to detail, and ability to know and understand my client’s needs before they do.

Originally from…  I was born and raised in sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I moved to Orlando to start college at UCF, and continued to work there for a while before moving to North Carolina.

I think the new home industry is important because… North Carolina has one of the fastest growing populations and economies in the nation… and a strong housing market is crucial for a flourishing economy.

I believe the future of homebuilding… is very bright. It puts the control into the buyer’s hands. The buyer gets to create a home that fits their personal style and needs. This makes new construction an ideal option for anyone, during any stage of life.

Industry Veteran or Newbie? Veteran, over 15 years of experience in new home sales.

 

BCCH (Before Capitol City Homes) Worked with CBHPW Builder Services for 8.5 years, representing 30+ builders.

 

Homebuilding Superpower…Identifying tools and solutions to make my team the most successful.  Being the bridge that connects and supports new home operations, marketing and sales.

 

Originally from…Kingston, New York

 

I learned from…The incredible people who believed in and mentored me, as well as from each great opportunity those very people offered me along the way.

 

I think the new home industry is important because…The new home industry is the foundation of our economy.  New homes bring new roads, schools, businesses, restaurants, utilities, jobs and so much more.  New homes improve quality of life, not only by fulfilling the dream of home ownership, but also by dramatically driving beneficial growth to surrounding areas.

 

I believe the future of homebuilding…Is significantly evolving.  Home designs are adapting, as every demographic’s lifestyles are changing.  Rooms and spaces are being used differently.  Some are becoming obsolete.  It is exciting and fun to imagine what homes will look like even ten years from now.

Industry Veteran or Newbie? New kid on the block. I am fascinated by new urbanism and environmentally friendly construction.

BCCH (Before Capitol City Homes)… As far as construction, I worked as a tender/rock mason for six summers working under AM Masonry.

Homebuilding Superpower… Attention to detail and my ability to investigate problems that arise in the field and the office help the company to refine their purchasing process and determine how mistakes will be remedied for the future.

Originally from… Marion, North Carolina.

I learned from… Appalachian State University where I earned a Bachelors of Building Science with a minor in Community and Regional Planning. I took part in the 2011-2012 Solar Decathlon team for Appalachian State University. This competition, which spanned 2 years and over 50 colleges from around the world, pitted each college against each other to design and build a 100% eco-friendly solar home that could be moved and transported with ease. Not only did it need its own solar panels to supply electricity, but we had to design a thermal wall for additional heating (patented by Appalachian State University), and a greywater system. This experience was one of the most influential things of my life. Not only did it broaden my knowledge of the building process but it introduced me to the world of green building practices.

I think the new home industry is important because… It is the foundation of everything we do in life. If you go to school, work, a basketball game, your favorite restaurant, etc., at the end of the day you come back home. Creating an environment that you can keep coming back to day after day is of the utmost importance in our daily lives.

I believe the future of homebuilding… Will provide green building practices as well as environmentally friendly housing that is affordable for all consumers.

Laura Lavan

Purchasing Manager

Industry Veteran or Newbie: I have over 6 years experience in the home building industry.

BCCH (Before capitol City Homes): I was a purchasing agent at another builder for 3 years and before that worked at a granite company.  In a former life I was a school counselor and a preschool teacher.

Homebuilding Superpower:  I am good at identifying issues and coming up with solutions.  I am very organized and pay a great deal of attention to detail.  I love lists and creating processes so that things run more smoothly.

Originally from: Queens, NY but I have been in Raleigh since 1999.

I learned from:  My official schooling was at Wellesley College in the Boston area and I have a degree in psychology.  In terms of homebuilding, my husband had a home improvement business in New York and was a superintendent in Raleigh so I learned about the construction process from that.

I think the new home industry is important because:  There are major milestones in life – graduating, finding your first job, getting married, having a baby, buying a home.  We play a major role in one of the most important decisions people ever make – the purchase of a home. 

I believe the future of homebuilding: is moving towards offering homebuyers more and more choices.  They get to select materials, styles, finishes, colors, living areas.  When someone purchases a new home, they get to choose so many aspects of the space where they will spend much of their time.

Industry Veteran or Newbie? I began my career in industrial construction. For five years, I assisted in the construction of oil and gas compression facilities and water treatment plants.

BCCH (Before Capitol City Homes): After graduating from East Carolina University, I moved north to West Virginia for a job in the emerging natural gas industry.I moved back to Raleigh to marry my wife, a Greenville native and I am very excited to be working in the residential side of construction.

Homebuilding Superpower: is understanding. I understand how to transition expectations and plans into an actual home. I understand how to assemble a team and keep them focused to accomplish our goals. I understand how each player’s role in our team contributes to the overall customer experience and satisfaction. Homebuilding has always been a passion of mine.

Originally From: I was born in Wilmington, NC in 1984 during Hurricane Diana. 

I Learned From: I graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and a Minor in Business Administration. 

I Think the New Home Industry Is Important Because: it helps to continue the “American Dream” and benefits the economy. No matter where you go and what you do, home is where the heart is. My great grandfather, an immigrant from Italy, was a homebuilder. He built many homes including the home where my mother grew up and it is still a home where my family gathers. Building homes gives people a place to start and raise their families, creating memories that last forever.

I Believe the Future of Homebuilding: is bright, as more efficient building materials and better construction techniques are constantly being developed.

I think the new home industry is important because: the area is growing so rapidly and it's vital to our economy.  

 

I believe the future of homebuilding: Finding newer and better ways to be more efficient. 

Laura Lavan, Purchasing Manager

Industry Veteran or Newbie: I have over 6 years experience in the home building industry.

BCCH (Before capitol City Homes): I was a purchasing agent at another builder for 3 years and before that worked at a granite company.  In a former life I was a school counselor and a preschool teacher.

Homebuilding Superpower:  I am good at identifying issues and coming up with solutions.  I am very organized and pay a great deal of attention to detail.  I love lists and creating processes so that things run more smoothly.

Originally from: Queens, NY but I have been in Raleigh since 1999.

I learned from:  My official schooling was at Wellesley College in the Boston area and I have a degree in psychology.  In terms of homebuilding, my husband had a home improvement business in New York and was a superintendent in Raleigh so I learned about the construction process from that.

I think the new home industry is important because:  There are major milestones in life – graduating, finding your first job, getting married, having a baby, buying a home.  We play a major role in one of the most important decisions people ever make – the purchase of a home. 

I believe the future of homebuilding: is moving towards offering homebuyers more and more choices.  They get to select materials, styles, finishes, colors, living areas.  When someone purchases a new home, they get to choose so many aspects of the space where they will spend much of their time.

BCCH (Before capitol City Homes): Restaurant Owner in Manhattan

 

Homebuilding Superpower:  Permit Processing.  Purchasing Administration.

 

Originally from: Wilmington, NC

 

I learned from: UNCW-BS International Business. 15 years of restaurant operations management from Las Vegas to Miami.

 

I think the new home industry is important because: where new homes are built, communities are strengthened and economic growth is possible.

 

I believe the future of homebuilding: Is going to be highly dependent on building homes that offer all the comforts and technological advances people are accustomed to, but are designed and built with energy efficiency and natural resource preservation in mind.

 

Ryan C. Willis, Project Manager

Industry Veteran or Newbie? I began my career in industrial construction. For five years, I assisted in the construction of oil and gas compression facilities and water treatment plants.

BCCH (Before Capitol City Homes): After graduating from East Carolina University, I moved north to West Virginia for a job in the emerging natural gas industry.I moved back to Raleigh to marry my wife, a Greenville native and I am very excited to be working in the residential side of construction.

Homebuilding Superpower: is understanding. I understand how to transition expectations and plans into an actual home. I understand how to assemble a team and keep them focused to accomplish our goals. I understand how each player’s role in our team contributes to the overall customer experience and satisfaction. Homebuilding has always been a passion of mine.

Originally From: I was born in Wilmington, NC in 1984 during Hurricane Diana. 

I Learned From: I graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and a Minor in Business Administration. 

I Think the New Home Industry Is Important Because: it helps to continue the “American Dream” and benefits the economy. No matter where you go and what you do, home is where the heart is. My great grandfather, an immigrant from Italy, was a homebuilder. He built many homes including the home where my mother grew up and it is still a home where my family gathers. Building homes gives people a place to start and raise their families, creating memories that last forever.

I Believe the Future of Homebuilding: is bright, as more efficient building materials and better construction techniques are constantly being developed.
