Area residents are invited to experience five custom-built homes up close and personal this Sunday in Argyle.
The Argyle Summer Living Tour of Homes will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on June 13.
Tickets are $10 per person, and Argyle Chamber of Commerce Office Manager Kim Hinnrichs said the tour of homes is a great way to promote local builders and businesses.
“Basically, we have five beautiful homes in Argyle, and all of them are very unique,” Hinnrichs said. “The chamber did it mostly to support the business community in Argyle.
“We have a lot of Realtors and custom home builders, so we are trying to increase their business a little bit.”
This will be the second tour of homes for the Argyle Chamber of Commerce, and Hinnrichs said this year’s event will be a little bit different from the first tour.
“The last one that we had, we had one custom home builder that had his homes showed,” Hinnrichs said. “This time, we made sure we included all of the custom home builders based in Argyle, and each real estate office is represented also.”
Hinnrichs said the event does benefit the chamber itself, as well.
“Mostly, what our purpose is, is to support our member businesses, but it also works as a fundraiser for the chamber. Each home has a sponsor, and we collect money from the tickets.”
Home sponsors include: Argyle Economic Development Corporation, Affiliated Bank Mortgage-Town & Country Mortgage Team, Bonded Lightning Systems, Ltd., Carpets Plus, Drew Walling Custom Homes, Liberty Christian School, and Verizon FiOS.
Hinnrichs said the goal for this year is to have 200 tickets sold, and said they have already sold more than 100 tickets.
Tickets are available at the chamber office, NorthStar Bank in Argyle, Argyle Chamber of Commerce, Keller Williams Realty in Argyle, RE/MAX North Associates, The Real Estate Station, Roxann Taylor & Associates, Noble Classic Homes, Papi’s Tex-Mex Grill, Pamala Hamilton Farmers Insurance Agency, and Julie Elsey State Farm Insurance in Bartonville Town Center.
Custom Home Builder John Michaels, owner of Noble Classic Homes, said the chamber’s tour is a great opportunity to show the work his company does, as well as market his homes to potential customers.
“I think it is a great community event for one,” Michaels said. “People love to come out and see these houses. That has always been a big attraction when we do these tours.
“Then, of course, it benefits our company with exposure. People see this, and they tell their friends and it sort of spreads through word of mouth.”
