Jeff has served as the Parade of Homes Chair for 2 different years in the past, and this years Parade Chair is a good friend of his, Kurt Dinnes of Sun Custom Homes. Kurt's co-chair is Kenyon Woods of Authentic Custom Homes. With this unique function comes events and the key sponsors of those events are The Womble Company and the local Pella Window supplier. Best Buy is the secondary sponsor of The Parade of Homes this year and you can even pick up Parade Magazines at all local area Best Buy stores.
Now, if you're cool like that, you really don't need no "stinkin" Parade Magazine. Because our 2011 Parade of Homes OKC app is ready for download via iTunes. (Of course we had to!) It has listing information and photos of all Parade Homes as well as mapping directly to homes, search features, the ability to share via social media, and People's Choice ratings for each home. Don't have an iPhone but you have a smart phone? Still cool. COHBA's introducing a mobile version of our Parade of Homes web site at mobile.paradeofhomesOK.com with similar functionality as the as the iPhone app. Yep, there's still the old-fashioned way of web browsing at the main 2011 OKC Parade of Homes site.
Coinciding with Jeff Click Homes' entry into this year's Parade of Homes, which is fully furnished by our friends at Suburban Contemporary Furniture, there's also a grand opening of our brand new, long-term Furnished Model Home in the Silverhawk community. This home is based on our Mello floor plan and showcases several new innovative design ideas and features that aren't typically found in homes under the $300,000 market, let alone in Oklahoma City. This very home, along with all other Parade of Homes, will be open daily from 1-7pm, October 15-23.
So to initiate the Parade of Homes (in JCH style), we're hosting a jet-set, "Meet Mello" party on Friday night from 5pm 8pm, the night before the Parade of Homes kicks off. This will give our fans, clients, and associates a sneak-peek at the home before everyone else. It's a come-and-go viewing, complete with hors d'oeuvres and definitely, fine beverages. Adults only please, and be sure to RSVP to let us know you're coming!
