Zack Schwartz has joined the McGuinn Homes Family!

Categories: Buying a New Home, Home Buying | Posted: May 16, 2016

Hello, my name is Zachary Schwartz, but most people call me Zach. I was born in Goshen, IN and lived up there till the age 11 where my family moved down to South Carolina. I have three younger sisters and one older brother. Growing up was always eventful having such a big family. We definitely had to learn how to share and to get along. It taught me a lot of valuable lessons now that I’m in my adult life. With that said though being so close in age, we were able to experience a lot of things at the same time, which help create so many great memories and good times.

I’ve lived and have grown up in the Columbia area since middle school. I went Dutch Fork Middle School, Dutch Fork High School, and Midlands Tech. Throughout high school and college I worked for a chain grocery store where I started out as a bagger and worked my way up to being a bookkeeper and finally a supervisor. From there I got a job with a local bank as a Bank Teller. After five and half years of working there, I got the opportunity to work at a national cable company. I started in Customer Service and worked my way to being a Sales Operations Coordinator. My interest peaked for Real Estate about 2 years ago and I haven’t looked back sense. I’ve always wanted to work for myself, so while working at the cable company, I did real estate part-time. I had a desire to do it full-time and was offered a unique opportunity with McGuinn! I see this as an amazing opportunity to really work to my potential. I’m a big people person so this is a really good fit for me.

I do have a lot of hobbies and interests. I would say my number one interest is music. I come from a musical family and background and it is still my heart’s desire to learn to play the guitar. I am also pretty big into fitness. I love to go to the gym and knock out a great work out and have that satisfied feeling of muscles twitching and just feeling that tiredness of doing something worthwhile towards being healthy.

There are so many great things that I would like so meeting new people comes with ease I have never met a stranger! I love hearing people’s life stories and what paths they are on or where they have been. It’s the small things in life that build my passions up. I have big dreams and big ambitions. I’m not afraid of work and I am willing of working hard and smart now, so that later down the road I won’t have to and I’ll be able to enjoy my life with my family and friends.

I’m so excited about the new opportunities in front of me and look forward to what happens next to continue on in the next chapter of my life.

McGuinn Homes has A New Homebuyer Orientation

“You’ve Bought a Home Now What?”

You’ve Bought a Home Now What new buyers orientation was introduced at late 2014 to enhance the buyer experience at McGuinn Homes. Within 2 weeks of writing a contract on your McGuinn Hybrid Home, whether a build job or purchase of an inventory home, the buyer is contacted by Wanda Harrill! Wanda will be the super hero who gets you from contract to CLOSING! This appointment will take 1 hour, but it will be the best one hour you could spend, because at McGuinn we believe that education about the home buying and building process is key to a successful relationship.

Buyers are presented with their McGuinn homeowner’s manual which explains every component in your new hybrid home in detail! We will discuss Lending processes and how time is of the essence to get you close ON TIME! We have HOA management companies for our McGuinn communities and we want you to understand who to contact when early on so all of your questions and concerns are answered.  We provide a sheet with all the utilities companies and service providers and tell you how to get the services transferred and when. Every McGuinn Hybrid home we build is treated for termites and that transferrable termite bonds is our gift to you at closing.

It is imperative that buyers understand McGuinn Homes construction timelines, WALKs, Closing process and the Customer Service/Warranty support they will receive after moving in their beautiful home.  Praises have come from McGuinn Homes buyers when they leave this meeting for they are filled with knowledge and have a sense of calm for what is expected of them and the experiences that are forthcoming.  The McGuinn team feels this is an hour well spent to improve our Hybrid Home buyer’s relationship.
