Get to know Partner Andy Chambers, why he chose new home building and what he thinks is the most important aspect of the business.
How long have you been in the home building industry?
What made you decide to choose new home building as a profession?
I have always had an aptitude for construction. I also had a good friend and brother-in-law in the business and knew when I finished college that it was the field I was going to try. I would have never dreamed it would have gone as well as it did. There are so many great people in this business; I worked for and learned from some of the greatest. I was very fortunate to be exposed to all facets of the business early and it has been a lot of fun.
What’s your favorite memory from working at MasterCraft Builder Group?
My favorite memory is the next day as I see us expand and our team step up to do whatever it takes to make us better than yesterday.
What would you say is the most important thing about being a new home builder?
There are so many important things in the individual aspects of the business. If I had to pick one I would say a respectful relationship. This could be with customers, trades and suppliers, developers, or fellow team members. A good working respectful relationship goes a long way!
What do you enjoy in your free time?
Time with my family, snowboarding, golf and shooting.
If you weren’t in the new home industry what other profession would you be doing?
I was in the Air Force for four years out of high school and actually surprised I got out to go back to school. So I would say I would have still been in the military.
What advice would you give to someone just starting out in new home building, construction or sales?
As a new home builder, we have to please a customer at the end of the day with a product that the both the customer and the company can be proud of for years. Treat them like you want to be treated during the entire process. Here is where it is a very different business; we produce a product that is typically the buyers’ most expensive purchase to date and we do this right in front of their eyes in the scorching sun, bitter cold, or hard rain and wind. When was the last time you bought anything else that was produced that way?
