Alan earned his MIRM designation through a combination of professional education and experience in the real estate field. Alan has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech, and has been working in the home building industry for 31 years. After operating a successful publishing business anchored in the industry, he co-founded Evans Coghill Homes with Chris Folk in 2001.
Chris Folk, the Chief Construction Officer of Evans Coghill Homes, said he is proud but not surprised by Alan’s achievement. “Alan’s quest for education and desire for professionalism is well-known throughout the Charlotte area,” said Chris. “And, of course, Evans Coghill Homes fully supports his commitment to that quest.”
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. These ideals have helped make Evans Coghill one of the most respected homebuilders in the region.
