Agent Spotlight: Cody Bilyeu

Get to know Cody Bilyeu in our first “5 in 5” themed post where we sit down with our agents and get to know them in 5 minutes with 5 questions …

5 in 5 with Cody Bilyeu, Re/Max Concepts

1. While searching for homes, which Greenland Homes communities will home buyers find you in?

A. You’ll find me in Waukee at Spring Crest and Clayton Estates. Both are in excellent locations – stop out to see me during open houses and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Close to schools, quick to the Interstate. It’s great!

2. Why did you choose to represent Greenland Homes?

A. Simple! I like working for a builder that appreciates what his agents do for them. Top Notch. Honest.

3. Is there a specific Greenland Home floor plan that’s caught your eye? What do you like? 

A. My most favorite feature from one of Greenland’s floor plans (and I’ll make sure to point this out if we’re touring one together!) is the office in the Ironwood Plan. I love attention to detail and the detailed wood work in this office is an example of the craftsmanship that goes into a Greenland Home.

4. Tell us a bit more about yourself. 

A. I’ve been married for ten years this August to my amazing wife and we have 2 kiddos … Collin is 3.5 and our new daughter will be born in February. We’re so excited! We have 2 adorable dogs …  Zoey (American Eskimo/Papillion) & Lola (Mini Austrailian Shepherd) who keep us entertained. And one of the things I really enjoy right now is smoking food on my smoker (the brisket is soooo good).

5. If you had to leave us with an inspirational quote, what would it be? 

A. “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” This holds true in life and when building a home (which is why you’ll want to work with me and Greenland Homes!).

Thanks for sitting down with us, Cody! 

Cody is one of the best! And we’re not the only ones who think so, check out this review …

“Cody was always available to answer questions and quick to respond. He advertised the listing and shared with me his progress. He was very professional, friendly and overall excellent to work with. I would definitely recommend Cody to friends and family” – Nick, Ankeny

How We Choose Floor Plans: Client Needs

One question we’ve been asked before is – how do we choose floor plans?

There are a few factors that go into choosing a floor plan that will go on to represent Greenland Homes. We’re going to spend some time over the new few weeks giving you an inside look at how we evaluate floor plans and make sure they meet our criteria.

Today’s post is going to talk about Client Needs. This is a huge factor in choosing a floor plan!

Our clients are in different stages of their lives and looking for a home that meets different needs. Some are upgrading for more space, some are downsizing to a townhome, others are just beginning the home ownership journey and are looking for their very first home.

We keep all of this in mind when looking at floor plans. We’re always on the look-out for layouts that make a busy family life a bit easier.

  • Things like, drop zones for coats/bags/shoes when you enter from the garage
  • Laundry on the same level as the bedrooms
  • Eat-in kitchen that’s perfect for making dinner while helping with homework
  • Basement that’s ready to finish so you can keep adding livable square footage as you need it

We also choose floor plans that are perfect for first-time home buyers.

  • We understand that many first-time homebuyers are different than they were a few years ago and “family” looks different now. Clients are looking for their own home so they can finally get the pet they want. Some are buying, knowing they will have roommates with them.
  • Plus, one thing we hear the most – many first-time homebuyers are looking for something affordable. Our American Dream Series is designed with all of this in mind.

Another reason why clients choose a new home, is they are looking to downsize.

  • Some clients want a home that easier to move around in, which would make our ranch plans perfect for them.
  • Other clients aren’t worried about mobility, but they are ready to relax and not worry about things like lawn maintenance and snow removal. This makes our townhomes a perfect fit for them!
