Hi, my name is Lisa Cole and I’m a New Home Specialist with Joyner Homes! I have been married to my college sweetheart for 20+ years and we have three awesome kiddos! Cam (21), our oldest, is a junior at the best school out there … yep, Purdue! 😊 Our daughter, Lilly (19), is a freshman at Ball State and loves every minute of being a college student. Who knew red (and black) could be an okay color, too? Ha! And, finally, our youngest son, Charlie (15), is a freshman at Mt. Vernon High School. He keeps us very busy playing school and club soccer. We also stay busy tailgating Purdue football games and traveling as much as possible. While I love traveling and being out and about, I’m also a homebody, so you can often find me at home cleaning, organizing something, decorating my home, or planting and gardening. Before I began working for Joyner Homes, I was a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor and stay-at-home mom for many years. A little over four years ago now, I decided to leave personal training behind and begin selling homes full-time. I loved watching Joyner Homes being built around the county, so I was thrilled when offered to be part of the team! I couldn’t ask for better bosses or co-workers and I still, to this day, love watching our homes being built! It’s a perk that I get to watch it all a little closer now. 😉 I would love to talk to you about building your future Joyner Home, so let me know how I can help! Also, I haven’t completely given up on the fitness world, so if you would like to come to a Spin class, I teach at 5:30 am on Thursday mornings at the Hancock Wellness Center in New Palestine. See you there!
Hi there! I am Cathy, the New Homes Specialist with Joyner Homes. I have only been with Joyner Homes for a little over 9 months but love this new career I’ve chosen more and more each day! I graduated college with an education degree and was a teacher for almost 7 years. I saw a job opening for a sales specialist with Joyner Homes and it sparked my interest. I had heard nothing but great things about the company from several friends and community members who have built with them, so I decided to step out of my comfort zone and apply. After learning more about Joyner Homes, its core values, and connecting with other members of our team, I decided to accept the position and try something completely new! After leaving the classroom my biggest fear was losing that personal, impactful connection, but I find myself still being able to create meaningful relationships with my customers. My favorite part about my job is finding out what is important to my customers and being able to help them find the perfect floor plan and home location. When I am not at work you can find me on the golf course, walking my dogs Kris and Piper, or playing in a soccer league. My husband, Sam, and I love to travel as much as possible anywhere from cruising in the Caribbean to hiking the Red River Gorge. I’d love to help you get started on building your dream home!
Here is a fun, historical story about Williams Run, our low-maintenance community, and Eagle Ridge, our exclusive half acre home site community. These two neighborhoods are near to each other, and the land has quite a story to tell.
This was originally posted back in 2020 before we opened these neighborhoods. Eagle Ridge is now sold out, and Williams Run just has 5 home sites left! And guess what!? Beth now lives out at Williams Run!!
Read below to learn a little history on the land, as told by Beth Williams Willard and Barbara Williams Drudge.
The land was in their family for approximately 80 years. Three generations loved and farmed the land. When Beth and Barbara’s father, Raymond Williams, returned home from serving in the Army during World War II, he and their mother, Norma, joined their grandparents, Hansel and Hazel, to farm the land.
Their house was on the same gravel road as their grandparents, which was located approximately one mile north. There were no other homes on the road back then. They herded beef cattle down the road to their grandparent’s farm, and they never lost one!
They had to deal with trying times over the years : The Great Depression, rationing of food and gas, and machinery breaking down. Their father lost some fingers in a farming accident early into a harvest season and was unable to harvest the crops. Farmers from all over the country showed up to harvest the crops!
They also had a dairy farm during that time. Milking was done early in the morning, often in the dark. They would feed pigs and chickens, gather eggs, plant or harvest, work in their garden, and milk the cows again. Truly a special time in history.
Their land yielded corn, soybeans, hay and straw. They also had a walnut tree that they would pick from and their great grandpa would store them in the cold back porch. When spring rolled around, he would take his hammer, crack the shells to get to the walnuts to be used for eating or baking.
Another special thing about this land is that Native Americans lived there before the Williams family. Beth and Barbara’s father would hunt for arrowheads as a boy, and he found many in the fields. They continue this tradition on Thanksgiving Day with their own families.
In their own words :
We have loved this land and have been so blessed to have taken care of it, as it has in turn, taken care of our families for many years. We hold many memories dear to our hearts. Although it is hard to sell, the time has come that we must. We are so moved the Joyner Family wants to develop the land and our hope is they will honor the land, the way our family has done. We hope many families will continue caring for the land and making beautiful family memories in Williams Run and Eagle Ridge.
Wow, what a wonderful piece of history!
