First Look: New Year. New Goals. New Home!

By Miller & Smith February 7, 2019

New Year. New Goals. New Home?

Between the countless hours of online research, visits to multiple neighborhoods and endless open houses with the kids in tow – finding the perfect new home for your family is not always easy. 

Luckily, one local homebuilder is looking to reimagine the homebuying experience this spring. Miller & Smith, the Washington region’s most award-winning home builder and real estate developer, is introducing FIRST LOOK, a series of local, kid and family-friendly open house workshops & new home showrooms. 

Hosted at Embrey Mill, Stafford County’s most popular new home community, the FIRST LOOK workshop and showroom will be designed to provide visitors with an immersive experience and hands-on learning environment in the new Miller & Smith model homes.

“FIRST LOOK is not only the start to a homebuyer’s story but ties into a variety of ‘firsts’ in a new home – first family meal, first home project or even the first bedtime story,” says Doug Smith, President of Miller & Smith. “This spring, we’re thrilled to engage local Fredericksburg and Stafford County homebuyers by exploring a variety of ‘firsts’ in a new home with a set of educational pop-up workshops, showrooms and partnerships.”

Unlike typical showrooms, the Miller & Smith FIRST LOOK Embrey Mill models will become a hub for families (and the kiddos!) to roam free, interact with local community partners, play, build, listen and learn. Visitors can see, smell, taste and touch their new home for a truly immersive experience. 

During the spring promotional campaign, homebuyers can also enjoy up to $25,000 in free FIRST LOOK perks with the purchase of a home within 60 days of their visit.
