At Wayne Homes, we are all about learning.
We are constantly learning from each other and from our valued customers about what works, what doesn’t, and how we can continue to improve. We feel that knowledge is power. And, in that spirit of empowerment, we are proud to periodically offer “Meet the Experts” events at our Model Home Centers.
Our Wayne Homes Meet the Experts events give you the opportunity to learn from the pros and get all of your questions answered. Topics covered range from finding your lot to financing. It’s a great primer if you are interested in building with Wayne Homes and want to learn more. We recently hosted Meet the Experts events at our Delaware, Akron-Medina, and Newark locations.
Here’s a quick review of what was shared at each of these events:
