Meet Mr. Robin Glover, Hames Homes Sales Manager

September 21, 2015

Q.  What’s the biggest change you’ve seen in mobile/manufactured homes since you joined Hames Homes?

A. “The construction.  Homes are more energy efficient and have lots better insulation.  They use more residential products in the manufactured homes like shingled roofs, better cabinets, dual pane windows and upgraded carpets.”

Q. What’s the best thing about the Hames manufactured homes that you’re selling?

A. “It gives people a chance to own a home.”

Q. What should buyers look for when shopping for a manufactured home?

A. A well-constructed home with a floor plan that meets their needs and budget.

Q. What’s the first question home buyers should ask you?

A. “’How Much Can I Afford?’ Buyers need to understand their financial situation before they start looking; otherwise they may fall in love with a home that’s out of their price range.  Manufactured homes are “affordable” housing, but that means different things to each customer.”

Q. If there’s one piece of advice you would give manufactured home buyers, what would it be?

A. “Put the home in a Hames manufactured home community!  It’s no different than buying a site built home.  You want to be in a good, safe neighborhood.  Homes in Hames mobile home parks are more desirable; they’re worth more and retain their value.”

Q. How has the internet changed the manufactured home buying experience?

A. “The internet has made it easier for people to educate themselves on mobile and manufactured homes in Iowa.  Customers come to Hames Homes more knowledgeable in general because they’ve researched online first.  Young people don’t know how to shop any other way!”

Q. Robin, what’s one thing about you that most people don’t know?

A. “I love to play golf.  In fact I was a PGA professional at one time.  Especially with this new equipment and technology.  I would have loved it when I was 21.”
