Danielle Halstead: Helping shape New Brighton
By Stephanie Miller, Marketing Coordinator
Since starting at Cedarglen Homes in 2002, Area Sales Manager, Danielle Halstead has helped hundreds of families build their dream home. Her energetic and friendly personality has even had homeowners returning when they’re ready for their next new home! Not only does Danielle believe in what she’s selling but also where she’s selling it. As New Brighton Area Sales Manager for the last ten years and a community resident herself, Danielle has now been appointed with the appropriate nickname “Mayor of New Brighton”.
I have had the pleasure of seeing Danielle in her natural sales habitat and I could instantly see why she sells as many homes as she does. Walking into the New Brighton showhome, I was greeted with plenty of laughter. I quickly realized that Danielle was with a Cedarglen homeowner and this is just how her meetings typically run. You can tell that she cares about each person who walks into her showhome and wants them to truly enjoy the home building experience. However, this experience is coming to an end in the family friendly community of New Brighton. With our single family homes quickly selling out (27 remaining lots and 9 quick possession homes to be exact!), Danielle will only be able to welcome a few more lucky homeowners into the community. One visit to her showhome and you will see what a great opportunity this is!
With so much experience and an exciting year ahead, we thought we’d ask Danielle a few questions.
What do you love about being an Area Sales Manager?
“My favorite part of being an Area Manager is meeting so many wonderful people. Most of my clients are young so I get to feel like a Mom to most of them. Seeing them accomplish something by setting a goal and achieving it buying their new home.”
What is your favorite home model?
“I have two. The Aspen of course ( I live in one) and I also love the Huxley. The upstairs laundry and the large kitchen island are to die for.”
With New Brighton single family homes almost SOLD OUT , what’s next for our New Brighton expert? Danielle will be moving onto selling townhomes and condos in New Brighton for Cedarglen Living. What is she most looking forward to?
“I look forward to seeing the project sell out quickly and to have the opportunity not to have to leave New Brighton. I am also looking forward to working with the Cedarglen Living team. I will certainly miss my Cedarglen Homes family though!”
What are your favorite hobbies or pass times?
“My favorite thing to do when I have down time is to hang out with my sons. I also enjoy golfing, playing the piano, snow shoeing and hanging out with the girl friends. I truly don’t have a lot of free time. With working in the two areas now there is no free time.”
Danielle has been nominated for a Sam Award in the Community Sales team of the Year - Single Family Home category. We will all be cheering her on when winners are announced this Saturday! Good luck Danielle! Visit her at her showhome at 827 New Brighton Drive SE for more information on the limited remaining lots.
Have a good weekend,
