My excitement for home building started in a very modern way - binge watching HGTV shows. I graduated from Portland State University in the Spring of 2018, and was honored to start my post-grad career with Adair Homes shortly after. It's a privilege to be a part of a team that cares endlessly about our customers, and helping them achieve their dream home goals. Outside of work, you can find me golfing, camping, reading, or spending time with friends and family.

It was clear that such a special property deserved nothing less than a thoughtfully placed, well-designed home ready to collect memories and generations of Hardin’s to come.

But can a virtual tour—even a 3-D one—replace an in-person tour? Is it really important to “walk-the-lot” these days?
