Interview on Triangle Business Today: Customization Sells Homes

Jeremy Salemson, CEO of Corporate Investors Mortgage Group, blogs about economic trends and data and their impact on Triangle business. Each week, he interviews a Triangle-area business leader for a personal look at the local economy.

This week, Jeremy interviewed Jenn Nowalk with Homes By Dickerson, one of the builder teams in Briar Chapel. In addition to discussing the local market, they talk about how flexibility and customization - from floorplan design to finishes - has enabled the builder to remain strong through the recession and almost double sales from 2011 to 2012.
