Here are just a few of our favorites...


"I am getting all kinds of EXCELLENT exposure and I think I will get at least a few houses out of this.  The house is showing awesome.  Almost everybody that came on Friday was either already building or about to start.  I cannot believe how many people I met over the past three days that build high-end custom homes every few years! "
   – Eric Brown, Everett Custom Homes—Charlotte, NC

"I have participated in more than 20 parade home and charity home projects in my many years in business. The quality of people who came to our show far exceeded any other event I have been a part of. They were qualified prospects; not just people who were looking for a place to come inside and get out of the summer heat."
   – Mark Dale, Owner, Carriage Homes, Inc.—Oklahoma City

"Tamra and her group at TL Concepts did a fantastic job with our High Performance Home Sponsorship. Completely satisfied with the sales process through the design, advertising as well as the final tour set up and wrap up newsletter. Her team was outstanding and the results of having several active leads from the show is the proof.”
Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative

   - Jay Robinette, President, Robinette Builders—Charlotte

"Thanks for the show and everything else. You and TL are awesome. I wish we could work with a TL-type firm in every area of life. Fabulous!"

“Overall it turned out really good. Heard nothing but positive from the 3 builders. Lots of good prospects. Charity had a good group and did a good job. Brought Menger Springs some good exposure. Realtor called from Realtor Day with prospect. Negotiating with buyer right now on a lot. It was great for overall awareness of Menger Springs.”
   – Michael Velsaco, Realtor for Menger Springs—San Antonio


“We got lots of calls, lots of interest in the flooring, we've already quoted 2-3 customers that came in the store and asked about it, wanted to say thank you. It was a pleasure working with you."

“It was wonderful to work on this project and I hope to be able to have another opportunity again in the future. ”
   - Jody Wilens, Interior Design Transformations & Home Staging—Washington DC

"TLConcepts approached us about a Green Tour that would allow us full display rights within the homes-helping the builder explain the insulation (our hybrid concepts) with full blown DVD, touch and feel displays. We found this immensely educational to the consumer and incredibly beneficial for the builders. Our full-foam builder sold his $1M home during the parade-in spite of the market conditions. We discovered a few months later, that by parking our trailer on site between the tour homes (vacant lot) and the additional walk-in attic displays and garage displays, that production builders seeking new ideas wandered in and found us. We met with three in this fashion. It wasn’t just the TV ad, the radio or the print, but the “touch and feel” aspect that got their attention. It was very professional."
   – Valinda McAlister, Marketing Director, Key Insulation—San Antonio

The benefits - indeed, the privilege - of supporting this important community effort, personally and as a business, we will have long-lasting effects.”
   - Jim Baynton, Carolina Kitchen & Bath Design Studio—Charlotte

“Hughes Supply has really benefited from our involvement in the WCNC Charity Home. We have started doing business with a builder who wasn't previously using us and have really developed a great relationship. We received tremendous exposure from the television ads and have many customers coming into our showrooms wanting to see the product we put in the home. We also get the satisfaction of contributing to a great cause for the Levine Children's Hospital. We definitely received a major return in our investment.”

"Tom and I would like to thank TL Concepts for giving us the opportunity to participate in their "Home of Distinction" program. We are honored to be a part of the charity I Am A Foot Soldier. Being parents of three sons we realize the importance in guiding youth at an early age and giving them opportunities to grow into productive citizens. Providing them with good examples they can use in everyday life, not only in school but in the real world throughout their lives. We are thankful for those who have participated with us in this program and for their dedicated work in order to make this program a success."

   - Beth Reinhardt, Boysville, Inc.—San Antonio

“We are extremely grateful for the event and for being chosen as the beneficiary for the 2006 Banner Ford Concept Home in the Sanctuary. With fundraising events it is unheard of to have new donors to the event exceed 50%. With the Concept Home, over 90% of the guests were brand new donors to us at Bridge House. We will be receiving benefits for years to come with all the new relationships that were built.”
   - Kevin Gardere, The Bridge House—New Orleans

“The promotion for the tour was amazing. Great job! We saw it everywhere and it was very professionally done. We would definitely like to do this again.”
