Dozens of models competed. But the people chose only one: the Harbour Town III. This stunning entry in the recent Wilmington Parade of Homes was by far the event’s fan favorite. During the annual showcase of new homes, voters cast a vote for one featured home in the highly competitive People’s Choice category. The nominee they overwhelmingly favored is also one of our most popular models, brought to fruition by Hagood’s team of experts and their invaluable trade partners. Without whom this remarkable success wouldn’t be possible.
A Success Story That Spans History
It takes a dedicated group of professionals to reach a level of accomplishment that garners such awards. The story of Hagood Homes originated with two individuals: Jim and Troy Kenny. These founders carried on a tale that stretches back to the 1840s. That’s when Jim’s great-grandfather, Johnson Hagood, built the very first Hagood home. A home that proudly stands today. Now, nearly two centuries and over 1,200 homes later, Jim and Troy are key members of the Carolina homebuilding community and have earned esteemed spots in the Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association’s Hall of Fame.
Setting Trends and Following Guidance
As a homebuilding trend leader, Hagood Homes seamlessly blends traditional coastal-inspired aesthetics with contemporary design details for today’s lifestyles. From unique open-floor plans and ten-foot ceilings to bonus rooms with lounges and baths, our brand lies at the forefront of modern home construction. And our incredible clients share credit for many of the latest innovations; we incorporate homeowner feedback as we fine-tune designs for the next generation of Hagood homes.
Is it truly better to give or to receive?
We believe in both! With a deep understanding that an integral part of our success lies in the positive impact we make on the communities in and around the places where we create homes. Over nearly two decades, Hagood’s founders, Jim and Troy Kenny, have donated over 1.2 million dollars to local charities. These include the Special Olympics New Hanover County, the Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake, the child advocacy group Carousel Center, and others. Established in 2004 by Jim and Troy, the nonprofit organization Hagood Hope for Children has an ongoing mission to bring food, clothing, and shelter to children in need around the world.
Closer to home, Hagood creates jobs; each newly constructed house provides around 250 positions, including jobs for on-site workers, local suppliers, and many others across the community. This giving back is at the heart of Hagood’s mission statement: “To build houses that become homes, to improve the communities we call home, and to improve the lives of our employees, trade partners, and homeowners.”
