McKee Homes Epcon Communities

McKee Homes is currently developing over 20 communities in Eastern North Carolina, three of which are Epcon communities.

What’s an Epcon community? Epcon is a home building company offering franchises to other builders dedicated to serving the luxury, low-maintenance, ranch-style home niche for consumers looking to downsize from their existing home. The homes are specially designed with high-end features and options and built with 36″ wide doorways inside the house and easy access with no stairs between the inside and outside areas. With an Epcon home, homebuyers know they can live in the home into retirement without having to make any modifications to their home.

McKee Homes offers Epcon homes in The Cottages at North Ramsey in Fayetteville with all exterior home and yard maintenance taken care of by the HOA. It’s an ideal situation for busy professionals, military families and retirees who don’t want spend their free time maintaining their home’s exterior and yard.

We also offer Epcon homes in The Cottages at Carriage Creek and Carriage Glen in Anderson Creek Club where landscaping and yard maintenance is taken care of by the neighborhood association. With all the luxury amenities of a golf club community available there, it’s a real benefit to homeowners not to have to spend their weekends maintaining their yards.

Epcon Communities Franchising Inc. (Epcon) celebrates two important milestones in 2016: 20 years of franchising anchored on a rock-solid foundation of 30 years of homebuilding experience.

“Over the past 30 years, we’ve mastered the concept of low-maintenance, lifestyle housing down to a science,” says Tim Rini, Vice President of Franchising, “Population demographics indicate that we’re just now at the tip of the iceberg in terms of demand. As we celebrate these important milestones in Epcon’s history, we’re ready to meet this underserved market with fast-to-market, winning home solutions for our Franchise Builders.”

Since this article was first published, McKee Homes has opened two new Epcon home neighborhoods. Evergreen at Flowers Plantation in Clayton, NC and Eagle Point at Mid South Club in Southern Pines.

McKee Homes 2014 in Review

McKee Homes continued its growth in all areas including homes built, homes sold, staff, and community involvement in 2014 and even made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the U.S. ranking no. 562 nationally and no. 13 in North Carolina.

McKee Homes staff, 2014

While some of our most popular neighborhoods such as Patriot Park Village in Fayetteville, N.C. and Forest Hills Pointe in Aberdeen sold out last year, we opened some highly anticipated new communities including Plantation Pointe in Mid South Club which is within walking distance of the clubhouse, pool and tennis courts and close to the Talamore Golf Resort in Southern Pines. Another popular new neighborhood is Hanover Reserve in Wilmington, within five minutes from downtown and some of the best beaches in the area. Construction began in Lanvale Forest in Leland in 2014 as that area continues to see growth and has become a popular tourist and retirement destination. While we started Summerwind Plantation in Garner at the end of 2013, it saw major growth in 2014 and has become one of our most popular and fastest growing neighborhoods.

The McKee Homes staff grew dynamically in 2014 with the expansion of our construction team to include Kevin Kozlowski as Director of Construction and two additional builders, Paul Endricks and John Sykes. Tish Oakley joined our team as Director of Purchasing, Matthew Meyerhoeffer is our new Purchasing Estimator, Jennifer Buckwalter became our new Production Coordinator and Erin Buchanan joined the team as our new Purchasing Coordinator. McKee Homes continues to attract some of the best professionals in the area and has become one of the area’s premier builders.

McKee Homes settled in to the new office and Design Center in downtown Fayetteville in 2014, and our Selections Coordinator Amy Kahler has done a great job adding the finishing touches and samples to the Design Center where she meets with new home buyers to walk them through the selections process.

McKee Homes’ commitment to giving back also grew in 2014 as we became the Presenting Sponsor for the Eastern North Carolina Chapter Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Eastern North Carolina Walks, which include the Smithfield, Wilmington, New Bern, Fayetteville and Raleigh areas, raised a grand total of $349,971.41 to help North Carolina families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

McKee Homes has continued to grow and build a dynamic company through the past five years and is looking forward to more growth, prosperity and community involvement in the coming years.
