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!

The San Marino Main Level

Find timeless beauty in this home’s exterior; classic shingle siding, earthy stone accents and eye-catching white trim are all framed by lush, professionally landscaped surroundings. A 2-story foyer makes for an impressive entry, and immediately to the left the great room invites you in, boasting an open-concept layout ready to serve as the center of the home. Kentwood Engineered hardwoods can be found throughout, while wide windows look out onto the backyard and a fireplace promises cozy evenings. In the adjacent dining nook, find shimmering doors that lead directly out onto an expansive covered porch. Boasting a fireplace and shelter from the elements rain or shine, this comfortable outdoor space is ready to be transformed with a barbecue, patio furniture, planters brimming with flowers and more—your vision of an outside oasis awaits!

Back inside, the spacious kitchen shows of top-of-the-line Sub-Zero, Wolf and Asko appliances, and generous granite or quartz countertops offer plenty of space for meal prep. A center island offers additional space to prepare meals, and the option for bar-style seating provides another casual spot to enjoy a snack or cup of coffee at. Just beyond the kitchen, a formal dining room is at the ready, whether you’re hosting a holiday get-together or an elaborate dinner party.

The main level also includes a large 3-car garage and a handy mud room, a separate den that’s perfect for transforming into an office or library, and a convenient bedroom and ensuite bath. Upstairs, even more opportunity for rest and rejuvenation await! A bonus room is ready to become an entertainment center, and 3 bedrooms each have their own walk-in closet and bath. The master suite is the absolute picture of comfort: a spa-like, 5-piece ensuite bath and an impressive walk-in closet offer an abundance of privacy and the luxury of ease and efficiency!

Find even more amenities in the San Marino’s lower level; a recreation room offers a unique space for activity and play, while an adjacent fitness center is always at your service. A separate wine closet, bathroom, and mechanical room showcase additional amenities, ensuring the San Marino offers everything you need within an arm’s reach!

“In the Classroom” Event Teaches Kids About Business & Entrepreneurship

Categories: JayMarc Homes Events, JayMarc Homes in the Community | Posted: November 1, 2016

JayMarc Homes was thrilled to be selected to run one of YPO’s “In the Classroom” events on Sunday, October 23rd. YPO is a leadership organization that Marc Rousso, President of JayMarc Homes, has been an active member of for years. YPO has leaders and businesses in the community periodically organize In the Classroom events to teach local children about business and the inner workings of different kinds of companies.

7

We were excited to have the opportunity to work on the “In the Classroom” event and teach children about the residential development business, as well as some principles of entrepreneurship and success.

13

The event consisted of tours through a handful of JayMarc job sites to show the different phases of construction; from foundation to framing to drywall, and then we finished our day at a completed and staged model home. It was instrumental for the children to see and understand all of the moving pieces and safety requirements that go into every stage of building a home.

3

At the staged model home, we had a learning lunch where we spoke to the kids about how to start a business, and the importance of perseverance and creativity within entrepreneurship.

Big thanks to YPO for allowing us at JayMarc Homes to participate in this wonderful event series. We had almost as much fun as the kids did!
