Here at Evans Coghill Homes, we are so proud of our Owner & CMO, Alan Banks. He was recently installed as the president of the North Carolina Home Builders Association.

“It is such an honor to be elected to this position,” Alan said. “I am very excited about the year ahead. The NCHBHA does great work, and I can’t wait to continue defending housing affordability for all North Carolinians in 2018.”

The NCHBA has been around for over 50 years, working to make the industry better.

With almost 14,000 members, the association encourages industry professionalism, provides a forum to strengthen industry views, and serves as an advocate for the industry that provides homes for the citizens of North Carolina. NCHBA plays a key role in helping maintain consistently higher industry standards of conduct, quality, and ethics.

“People choose to get involved with the association for the same reasons I have,” notes Alan. “Because they want to serve this great industry and do their part so more families in North Carolina will have a chance to own a home.

“I truly believe that the work we do positively changes lives and families, and strengthens the fabric of our community. We make a difference each and every day. Whether you are hammering nails, digging footings, hanging drywall, or running wire… whether you are a banker, an insurance agent, or a sales consultant, you are part of this great and necessary industry.”

In 2016, there were 61,000 new single-family and multi-family homes started in North Carolina. Many more homes were renovated or improved for families. And as Alan said so eloquently during his acceptance speech, the NCHBA has a duty to make sure everyone in North Carolina has a chance to own a home.

“We are going to fight for housing affordability, in the town council meetings, county commission meetings, at the NC General Assembly and in Washington DC. Together, we are going to stand for what is right, and clear the path for more new homeowners across North Carolina.”

Evans Coghill Homes is thrilled to announce that our Chief Marketing Officer, Alan Banks, has been inducted as a Master in Residential Marketing (MIRM) by the National Association of Home Builders.

Alan earned his MIRM designation through a combination of professional education and experience in the real estate field.

After operating a successful publishing business anchored in the industry, he co-founded Evans Coghill Homes with Chris Folk in 2001.

Alan & Chris’s dedication to quality and proficiency are well represented throughout the company they created. With a team of remarkably skilled professionals at their side, they work constantly to create the best experience for our homebuyers. At Evans Coghill, we are careful to protect the environment, and prioritize designing home plans in communities that fit our company’s style and culture.

Evans Coghill celebrates Charlotte MAME Award wins.

Categories: Awards, Floor plans | Posted: June 10, 2016 | Comments Off on Evans Coghill celebrates Charlotte MAME Award wins.

Here at Evans Coghill Homes, we are proudly celebrating our big wins at the 2016 MAME awards last month. Among our honors, our Charleston and Saratoga plans won Silver and Gold awards for Best Floorplan. The MAME (Major Achievement in Marketing Excellence) awards are given to members of the Homebuilders Association of Charlotte to celebrate hard work and recognize distinction in the home building industry.

Saratoga 2000w

The Saratoga plan by Evans Coghill was recognized as one of the best new home plans in Charlotte in 2016. With all the living space on the main level, the home offers open floor plan living without the inconvenience of steps. Available in Cheval and Springfield.

The Saratoga received the Gold Award for Best Floorplan under $500,000. This thoughtful ranch plan is perfect for growing families or downsizers. In addition to the open feeling and great flow, you’ll love the way all of the rooms are just the right size. As you enter from the front porch, the dining room and study are on either side of you, both featuring vaulted ceilings. Straight ahead is the large space featuring the family room, kitchen and dining area. The large doors in the family room open to the back screened porch, which has a fireplace.

The master suite is tucked away toward the back of the house, separated from the other two bedrooms for privacy. It includes a spa-like bath and a huge walk-in closet. There is a flex or bonus room just up the back stairs – the ideal spot for a home office or get-away space. There are options available for converting the secondary bedrooms into a multi-generational living suite. The Saratoga is available in Springfield and Cheval.


The Charleston home plan is Evans Coghill’s model home in Riverwalk. There is so much to love about the innovation of this home plan.

The Charleston received the Silver Award for Best Floorplan under $300,000.  Introduced in our Riverwalk community in 2015, the Charleston is all about relaxation and flexibility. Its impressive 2-story exterior is dramatic and distinctive, but we think you’ll love the interior even more! As you enter from the huge front porch, the study is to your left, and the kitchen ahead. The kitchen opens graciously into the family room, while the main floor master bedroom is tucked privately into its own wing of the home.

unspecifiedThe dining room located just off the kitchen can be converted to a guest bedroom, while the study can be enclosed for privacy or left open. The upper level includes three additional bedrooms, and a loft space that is only enhanced by the optional two-tiered porch. And the back yard feels more like a private courtyard due to the carefully designed orientation of the rear porch, master bedroom and garage. The Charleston is exclusive to Riverwalk.

We were named Builder of the Year in 2016. Our homeowners have continued to give us positive reviews and survey results. Read more about what they have to say here.  Evans Coghill Homes builds new homes in Riverwalk, Springfield, Cheval and Southpark.
