Evans Coghill Homes- Home Builder Profile

The Evans Coghill story begins with a passion for charity and a philosophy of caring. On a sweltering day some years ago, Alan Banks and Chris Folk were swinging hammers and laying the foundation for a Habitat for Humanity home. Chris worked as a licensed general contractor for Charlotte’s most prestigious neighborhoods, and Alan was a mechanical engineer who had built a successful publishing business cornered on the homebuilding industry. 
The duo’s desire to help others became the basis of a strong friendship and, with their combined talents, they saw an opportunity to bring affordable and effective homes to the community. Borrowing from their middle names, which happened to be their grandmothers’ maiden names, Alan and Chris started a company. In 2002, Evans Coghill Homes was born. 
Since its inception, Evans Coghill Homes has been committed to providing artistry and impeccable craftsmanship. Now a preferred builder in some of the Carolinas’ most successful neighborhood developments, Evans Coghill has raised the bar for quality construction. With home features such as oversized staircase handrails, granite countertops, hand-sanded and finished hardwood floors and custom trim work, Evans Coghill Homes built for itself a reputation of providing homes with classic design and traditional elements. 
At Evans Coghill Homes, buying a home is about more than just an excellent product and consummate value; it is about a partnership with your homebuilder. With personal, attentive care, Evans Coghill Homes acts as your homebuilder, confidante, and loyal friend. Its mission is to lead with integrity, to listen with passion, and to execute with excellence. The company continuously reviews, refines and tests its processes to ensure homeowner satisfaction. 
Today, Alan and Chris are still leading as the perfect team. Chris provides indispensable construction and product knowledge and expertise, and Alan is essential with his business management and marketing know-how. He is sharing his experience, currently serving as president of the 900-member Home Builders Association of Charlotte. Now building in Mint Hill, NC, and in Fort Mill and Rock Hill, SC, Evans Coghill Homes continues to demonstrate how the combination of innovative spaces and a sensible price not only sustains homebuilding companies, but families, as well.
