I don't have any proof of this, but I am quite certain that my jaw literally dropped when I heard the headline above come across the 11:00pm news last night. I absolutely can't believe it!
Yes, I've been surprised at times to hear of some other builders going under. I know Davis Homes really caught me off guard when that happened a year or so ago. But CP Morgan? Seriously???
These were the big boys. These were the ones that were always sponsoring realtor lunches, trips to Colts games, gift cards, all that fun stuff. What happened?
I'm sure this is the same question that a lot of others are thinking as well...current homeowners, realtors, contractors, suppliers, those that have already put money down towards the building of their new home. So many people have been effected.
But the people I'm feeling for the most this morning are their sales reps. Primarily because these people have been the face of CP Morgan for me for the last 9 years. And I have to say, these have been some of the most loyal, professional and hard working people I've ever worked with.
No matter what anyone else thought, these people were enthusiastic, energetic, and sincerely believed that they could offer the best home for the money any where around. I do believe that they sincerely believed in their product. These are hard working, ethical people and my heart goes out to them this morning.
