Extreme Makeover Home Edition Coming to Greater Charlotte – Lincoln County NC

I recently received an e-mail from Bellamy Homes and I just knew there would be many interested folks locally, that would not be aware of it.  Please share this information with anyone you think would like to participate…..

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (ABC) is coming to the “greater Charlotte area”.   The builder is Bellamy Homes from Cornelius (a contract that was negotiated over a year ago based on applications of families in this area) and they have requested to partner with the Lincoln County Home Builders Association for this project in the event it happens in Lincoln County. 

Mark Ingle (president LCHBA) is working directly with Wade Miller of Bellamy Homes to secure building products and skilled volunteers for the construction portion.  Hodges Willoughby of Bellamy Homes is working to secure non-skilled volunteers for everything outside of the construction site.  These are the sort of details and preparations that have to be made ahead of time regardless of whether our community is selected or not. 

There are several families in the “greater Charlotte area” that are still being considered.

The website is live today after the press release was presented by Bellamy Homes.  Please take the time to visit www.bellamyhomes.com and view the Join Extreme Makeover portion of the website.  It is very simple to sign up to be a volunteer.  They need both skilled labor (for construction portion) and non-skilled volunteers.  There is a job available for everyone interested in being a part of the project.

The announcement date is SUNDAY DECEMBER 11.  That will be the day the bus rolls up and Ty steps out with his megaphone to announce their arrival at whichever site is selected.  The event will begin immediately and run thru Sunday December 18. 

The actual construction portion is Monday December 12-Friday December 16 with punch list being handled on Saturday December 17.  They will have shifts for the entire 7 days 24 hours around the clock and you can sign up for what suits your schedule.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of something much bigger than we could ever imagine.  You will have the opportunity to meet the “stars” of the show during your volunteer time.  But better than that, you will be helping provide a new home for an outstanding family in whichever community is selected.  This show is not about how bad the house is you currently live in, it’s about the extra-ordinary circumstances of your life that demand a better living space. 

Maybe you can only give 4 hours that week or you can give 40 hours that week – no matter how much or how little they can use it. Again the website is www.bellamyhomes.com – it only takes a few minutes to register.


About Michelle Nantz

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional: integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills, and a high-quality professional network ~ all of which are hallmarks of Michelle Nantz. In 2003, Michelle began her career in real estate, after a successful career in restaurant and hotel management with her last position as Regional Director of Operations running 56 hotels throughout two states. She owes her success in real estate and management to her expertise in people skills, managing, negotiating, and follow-up. However, it is Michelle’s dedication to quality service that she ultimately credits her success. Michelle shared, “In my experience as a Lake Norman real estate professional, I’ve found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to their needs.” This “client first” philosophy combined with continual personal improvement and keeping up-to-date with the latest technologies is a cornerstone of both Michelle’s and Lake Norman Realty’s business philosophy. In addition to Michelle’s extensive real estate education and her experience in the local market, she is also an Accredited Staging Professional®, which brings additional value to marketing her clients’ homes. Michelle and her family have made the Lake Norman area their home for over 10 years. In her rare leisure moments, you’ll find Michelle with her three children and husband, or unwinding with gardening or reading. “I live and work in this community and only have the best interests of our community and its members in mind,” says Michelle.
