Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
When New Home Star Division President, Kyle Rush, met with producers from “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” at this year’s International Builders’ Show, he had one builder in mind. Next month, Bellamy Homes, a local Charlotte Builder and New Home Star client, will be the featured builder on the hit show. For New Home Star, a national sales management and outsourcing company that works with builders and developers, the pairing of local builder and community-focused show was a natural fit.
Rush, a Charlotte native who has been on the builder side of two previous “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” builds, knows firsthand the value of the program. With New Home Star, Rush now works with builders to help them sell more homes and understands the importance of visibility in a challenging market. With “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”, Bellamy will have the opportunity to not only give back to the local community, but also expand its presence in the market.
“At New Home Star, we’re always working with the builders we represent to promote their brand. With Bellamy Homes being locally owned and community service-driven, this partnership just made sense. We are excited to bring this opportunity to them and look forward to being a part of the project every step of the way,” explains Rush.
The idea and purpose of the show’s gift of housing also resonates with New Home Star president, David Rice. Having founded New Home Star in late 2007, Rice did so with the intent of aiding an ailing home building industry. As a child, Rice watched his own home burn to the ground, giving him a special appreciation for the mutual benefit the show provides both new homeowner and current client.
“As a child, my family lost everything in a house fire. We saw the community around us come forward with great generosity and support.” Rice says, “It moves me to see the people in Charlotte already exemplifying that same kind of generosity for this Extreme Makeover project.”
