Meet the Team: Jason Haines

“Ecstatic” does not even scratch the surface of how thrilled we are to have expanded into the Fredericton home builders market!  With the cities unique charm and sense of vitality, we’re looking forward to adding to the community!  However, none of those “Ahhh” moments we experience when a family begins life in a new space are possible without efficient management and we’ve got one heck of a guy looking after this!

Welcome Jason Haines! With a BBA from UNB-Fredericton topped off with a Business Marketing Diploma from NBCC-Moncton and Green Belt Six Sigma Process Improvement from the Juran Institute, this man is well equipped to serve the MHB family as our Fredericton Location Manager!

Jason Haines and his wife Erin are the proud parents of a beautiful daughter Leah and with the arrival of a second daughter,towards the end of June, they’ll be an adorable family of four!

Jason is an avid golfer and has golfed in a few exotic locations, including Korea! He would love to travel Europe to “visit historic sites, distilleries, festivals and OF COURSE GOLF!”

If the opportunity presented itself for Jason to start a new business anywhere on Earth, doing anything at all, he would start a links style golf course in a warm place! He’s leaning towards Jamaica! 

Obviously this guy loves his golf, but he’s also a big Bruin’s fan! He would love to see Boston relocated next to Fredericton so that he could see live games…and enjoy both of the cities’ historical beauty.

Where We’re Building In 2013

By: Natalie

One of the most frequent questions that I get asked through our Contact Us page is whether we build in a particular geographic area. While we are working very hard to take over the World (Mouhahahaha), we are currently expanding at a good rate and keeping operations focused in New Brunswick for 2013.

So, where do we build?  Check out our list of MHB locations:

1.  Greater Moncton

Moncton, World Headquarters for Martell Home Builders, is where we set roots and first established ourselves.  We build in all of the Greater Moncton Area including Dieppe and Riverview.  Because Moncton is our most established location, we’ve been able to diversify into Lease-2-Buy properties and reselling through our sister company Martell Realty. Moncton Fun Fact: In 2008, Readers’ Digest dubbed Moncton “Canada’s most polite & honest city.”

2.  Miramichi

2012 marked our third building season in Miramichi.  We really enjoy working with the local trades & people in the Miramichi area and providing them with the Martell Experience.  Miramichi Fun Fact: In 2010, Miramichi was named the world’s first Smart Technologies Showcase Community for use of Smartboards in schools & businesses.

3.  Saint John

Saint John is a market that we’ve been working for three seasons as well.  We’ve been active building custom homes in the Greater Saint John Area and we love working with our awesome team of established local trades.  Saint John Fun Fact: Saint John boasts the largest public transit system in the Province.

4. Sussex

Just a skip down the highway,  the picturesque community of Sussex is growing.  Increasingly popular with the retiree crowd, we think that Sussex is the perfect market for our bungalow semi-detached homes which offer one-story living at a value price point.  Sussex Fun Fact: Sussex is the “Mural Capital Of Atlantic Canada”.

5. Fredericton

2013 will mark our expansion into the Fredericton market and we couldn’t be more excited! Fredericton is a such a great city with an active lifestyle.  In fact, we are actually hiring a new Location Manager for this market place.  Check out the job positing here.  Fredericton Fun Fact: The notorious Benedict Arnold once lived in Fredericton.

 

 

 

 

Our Favourite Things: East-Coast Christmas List

I swear my heart is shaped like the East-Coast! From relaxing on the beach, to surfing, repelling, skydiving, snowboarding, and sipping local brews or beans–Atlantic Canada offers something for everyone. This coast is vibrant, intelligent, and full of creativity. We’ve compiled a list (and checked it twice) of a few of the things we love here!

1. East Coast Candles

If I ever find myself near the Boyce Farmers Market in Fredericton, NB, East Coast Candles is a must stop. I guarantee these candles smell better than any other collection EVER! The best part is that the scents last for years!

2. Magnetic Hill Winery

I’ve heard many friends rave about the amazing selection of “estate-grown strawberry, raspberry and local New Brunswick blueberry, cranberry and rhubarb” wines that this Moncton winery distills on-site!

3. Honibe

Another classic, East-coast trait is trust in home remedies. Honey is said to act as an anti-allergan, an anti-inflammatory, and a sore-throat soother. This PEI-based company has created lozenges to either replace traditional throat drops or to use as a non-mess, natural hot-beverage sweetener. Kelly uses them all the time and we think you might like them too!

4. Just Us Coffee

Located in the Annapolis Valley, Just Us was created to demonstrate that business can be done by putting “people and the planet before profits.” Just Us now offers a great selection of beans from different regions of the world, along with sugar and chocolate and are available at both Sobey’s and the Superstore. I can’t wait to serve their Holiday Blend this Christmas!

5.Serge Pottery

Looking for a new collection of mugs? These are, by far, my all-time favourite pottery mugs. I bought my first one about two years ago and it–along with a few others from the collection–have served me well. They’ve survived a few tumbles and look so rustic.

6. J. Day Designs

Julie Day is a designer and mom from Nova Scotia. She not only creates beautiful cards and jewellery, but offers tips on both of her blogs! Be sure to follow her and pick up some of her handiwork at Market Street Stamps or by sending her an email.

7. Viet Bistro

Nothing quite says Canada like international cuisine :) This licensed restaurant offers a large variety of traditional Vietnamese food for a very reasonable price (apps $2.50-$10; main dish $10-$20).

8. Anabanana

For all things eco-friendly, trendy, safe, and innovative for the little ones in your life, check out this brand new business on Mountain Rd!

9. Two Women & Their Soap

My sister LOVES this soap. The two artisans are based at King’s Landing Historical Settlement near Fredericton, NB and take pride in making quality soap, creams, and lip balm through time-tested, quality assuring methods. All of their products are handmade in their kitchen and sold at a boutique at the King’s Head Inn and at various craft shows in New Brunswick.

10. Gifts Galore

If I forgot something super cool from the East Coast, I’m sure this little shop can point you in the right direction. They stock all things local from scarves to art to food, Gifts Galore is a one stop shop for all things Maritime. If you’re lucky, they’ll even be serving free cider!
