Schaeffer Family Homes Featured Employee: Meet Christie!

At Schaeffer Family Homes, our team knows that a home isn’t just a living space — it’s a place where families grow together. Between all of those special milestones and everyday moments, a home is where we make our lifelong memories.

Featured Employee Christie Schaeffer Homes

From start to finish, our dedicated Schaeffer family ensures an easy, smooth, and rewarding experience for everyone we work with. When we build your home, we build a living space that we’d want for ourselves, and no one understands these family values better than Christie Redner, our very own Director of Sales and Design Center Manager.

Just a week after graduating from Penn State, Christie began her career in new home sales, and has since changed the lives of families for 12 years and running. The incredible impact that Christie has made on Schaeffer Family Homes for the past 7 ½ years is felt by all!

Everyone who meets Christie can instantly sense how bright, kind, and genuine she is, so it’s no wonder that she’s the perfect person to assist customers on the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. With a family of her own, Christie knows how important it is to treat homeowners with respect and care throughout every step of this exciting process.

“It’s incredibly rewarding to show someone that their dream home can become a reality,” Christie says. The many “thank you” emails and cards that she receives after move-in day is just a testament to

 the wonderful work that she does day in and day out. We can’t say enough about Christie, but many happy homeowners reflect our thoughts exactly with their rave reviews…

“Christie is the best! I don’t know how we could have gotten through the process without her.”

 “Christie Redner… She’s amazing to work with and will keep you focused.” “Christie went above and beyond! I’m not completely sure how she put up with all of the questions we had.”

Featured Employee Christie Schaeffer Family Homes

Outside of the office, Christie loves traveling, going to the beach, walking her dog, and spending time with her daughter, Willow, and husband, Dan in their warm and comfortable Schaeffer home. Yes, Christie was once a customer of ours! She chose to build a home on her own land, so she knows exactly what a Schaeffer homeowner goes through in the building process. This is one of the many reasons that the service she provides to our customers is top of the line, and why spending time with her is so much fun.

All of us at Schaeffer Family Homes want to thank Christie for the positivity she brings to our office and our homeowners every day! We can’t wait for you to see what a joy she is to work with. For more information on our homes and communities, please visit our website, or give us a call at 856-208-5118.

9 Ways to Welcome Spring Into Your Home

New Home Living Room

We never thought it would be here, but Spring is finally in full bloom and all of us at Schaeffer Family Homes in New Jersey are so excited because of all the fun ways to enjoy the season inside and outside your home! We’re more than ready to hang up our coats and make the most of spring! Here are a few design and decor tips to welcome spring into your home, so you can enjoy the season to the fullest.

  1. Bring plants and flowers into your home. Whether they’re in vases, hanging planters, or sprawled on the mantle, more greenery and color will brighten anyBUDy’s day!
  2. Designate a weekend to some Spring cleaning to bring in the new season and send out those winter woes! Nothing feels more refreshing than an organized home, so grab the vacuum and cleaning supplies and go room by room to tackle the dust and dirt that’s been building up all winter.
  3. Give your closet a makeover by switching into the clothes you’ve been waiting to wear all winter! Likewise, collect all those heavy boots and coats and put them into storage.
  4. Let the light in! Nothing feels more like spring than fresh air and natural light, so part those curtains and open up those large windows! Spring is in the air and you should have it circulating through your house.
  5. Pastels and shades of white are back on trend. Replace your pillows, curtains, and accessories to add pops of spring colors. Fun accent pieces with lots of color and even fun patterns are the perfect way to brighten up any room. With our homes, you definitely have enough room to utilize all of the trending spring colors!
  6. Lemonade, strawberry shortcake, lavender sorbet… the options are endless when it comes to cooking creatively with spring ingredients. Keep your kitchen stocked with fruits and seasonal veggies!
  7. Speaking of lavender, spring scented candles are back in stock and ready to be lit! Filling your home with all the calming and enjoyable scents of the season are the perfect way to wind down after a busy day.
  8. Getting the outside of your home ready for spring is just as important as the inside. Decorate your entryway with blossoming wreaths and potted flowers to properly welcome your guests and create an inviting new look for the season!
  9. But don’t just plant a new bed of flowers – switch out your actual bed as well! Exchange the flannel sheets and heavy comforters for lighter sheets and duvets. It’ll be easy to catch some ZZZ’s in the right linens.

 

Spring is the perfect time to have fun with your home decor. Use these helpful tips to enjoy all the feelings of the season inside and outside your home!

Building Strong for Generations

The Schaeffer family has been committed to providing quality-built, affordably priced new homes in South Jersey for over 60 years. Starting with Thomas Schaeffer Sr., continuing through Thomas “Tim” Schaeffer Jr., and now guided by Jason Schaeffer, this dedicated clan has made homebuilding a true family affair.

While Tim worked with his father, polishing his craft and building custom homes in southern New Jersey, Tim’s son, Jason, has taken his years of experience and is shifting the company’s focus to “on your lot” building in South Jersey and at the Shore.

Various members of the Schaeffer family are involved with the company – that’s what makes us different! When you build a home with us, you work with everyone in the family (In case you’re wondering, Jason’s sons are already part of the company… he named the newest floor plans after them!).

Letting our family build for your family is a smart decision. We’ll build your home just like we build our own!

Call Schaeffer Family Homes when you’re ready to build the home of your dreams. We’ll build what you want, where you want.
