2020 Charity Home Contractor Spotlight: Stensland Sod Inc

Thank you, Stensland Sod Inc!

Stensland Sod Inc is donating sod installation and landscaping for our 2020 Charity Home. We are so thankful for businesses in our community stepping in to make sure our charity home raises maximum dollars for such important causes that support our community. We will be donating the greater share of the sale profit to Children’s Cancer Connection and the remainder to CASA and the Animal Rescue League.

“We’ve installed the sod in each and every Children’s Cancer Connection home that Greenland has donated, and we are so happy to continue this partnership and help Greenland to give back to such a great cause!”

They strive to connect pediatric cancer patients and their families, regardless of treatment outcome or years off treatment. They support the entire family through the entire journey by providing programs at next-to-no cost, including hospital- and clinic-based programs, camps and retreats, support services and outings, as well as scholarship opportunities.

Get to know Danny West in our “5 in 5” blog post where we sit down with our agents and get to know them in 5 minutes with 5 questions …

5 in 5 with Danny West, Re/Max Concepts

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

A. You’ll find me in Altoona, currently representing Country Cove Park, WillowBrook Estates, and Meadow Vista South.

2. Why did you choose to represent Greenland Homes?

A. I love representing Greenland Homes because they care about their customers. They build a well-known quality home and are responsive and do a great job listening to their client’s needs.

3. We always ask what your favorite feature or floor plan?

A. Under-cab lighting in the Advantage Series Preston floor plan! This feature is one that you don’t realize how much you love it till you have it in your kitchen. Soft light that really helps set a calming mood especially in the evenings. One of the “must have” to go on your home needs list.

4. What else can you tell us about you?

A. I am getting married in 2020 to my fiancée Molly. I have a 12-year-old daughter Lexee that loves sports (volleyball & softball). I like to do game nights with the family, help Lexee in her sports, and cheer on the Packers!

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

A. “In order to do something you’ve never done…you have to become someone you’ve never been.” Les Brown


“I have used Danny twice in selling two homes in past couple of years and would not hesitate to do it again. His communication skills are excellent telling us what prospects thought, offering advice and in selling the home for great prices. If you’re looking to sell or buy, do yourself a favor and listen to someone who has experienced Danny’s dedication to you. Just make sure you call Danny, then sit back and relax and he will do the rest.

Thanks Buddy, Bob Lohr.”
