I'm Jared Dawson. You may know me as a band teacher, as the bass player in that family band, or as the guy who builds single-level houses around Albert Lea. Or like most people nowadays most likely as the guy with the sunflower field. My name is Jared Dawson and I’m the founder of Encore Developments. A lot of people don’t know that about me. So, I wanted to start a blog to share some stories about who we are and what we’re all about.
We’ll be sharing more content and creating some short videos that will allow you to see some of the amazing homes available, meet some of the clients we have worked with as they either purchased or built a single-level home with us. We will talk to clients who love to entertain large groups as well as clients who have utilized home health care. We will take a look at various options (showers, cabinets, grab bars). We will also show you some of our community connection events such as the sunflower fields, Christmas lights, musical opportunities that my family and I are involved with. We’re excited to share more and hope you find it interesting.
I thought we’d start this first one at the beginning and give you an introduction to Encore. It all started in Emmons two decades ago (there’s more to that story I’ll share another day). For more than 20 years we’ve focused on single-level homes and helping clients who range from early empty nesters to seasoned retirees. We specifically help them transition into a single-level home, whether buying an existing single story home (as-is), to be remodeled, or building a new single-level home. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a smile on a client’s face when they enter their home for the first time.
Why the name Encore? It’s a time when you get to be center stage for once. Kids are grown, finances are a bit more stable, and your time is yours now. We aim to help people live their life to the fullest in a home that’s just right for them.
Hope you’re having a cheerful holiday season despite the challenges of the pandemic. I certainly wish my students and my family were playing our usual holiday concerts. Wishing the best to you all.
To the future,
