Welcome to the JayMarc Family!

It is always an exciting time when we get to start a custom homebuilding journey with a new family. This week we broke ground in Bellevue with the Ferara family! The JayMarc crew joined them to watch the fun as their property started to get cleared out and prepared for the big dig. We are looking forward to getting started!

Demolishing Cancer with CanCan Education Program

Categories: JayMarc Homes Events, JayMarc Homes in the Community | Posted: December 28, 2016

CanCan Rivkin Center


Last September, CanCan, an ovarian and breast cancer education program merged with the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer and hosted a fundraiser to raise money for the Rivkin Center program. 100% of the proceeds went towards the program. The event raised $400,000! What an exciting accomplishment!

An exciting part of the night was the Raise Your Paddles portion where everyone was invited to bid on items. JayMarc Homes participated in the event this year, donating two demolition experiences where you get to sit in an excavator and help the JayMarc team demolish a home!

Last week, the first family to purchase the demolition experience got to help demolish a home in Bellevue. After putting on their JayMarc hard hats, Ryan & Pratika Iyer got to business and spent most of the morning demolishing a home with the help of Rino Construction. It was a joy to watch and everyone had a great time!

Scroll down for some fun videos and a live video of the demolition!
