For the first time in history, a custom designed home has been sold through an online “buy now” offer. Harbor Homes partnered with Anewgo to make this possible and buyers were able to pick their lot, personalize a floor plan, select their finishes, sign paperwork and make a deposit on their own time, remotely.
On this webinar, you’ll learn about Harbor Homes and their experience with implementation and roll out of the BUY NOW feature. We’ll answer your questions about the process, systems in place, customer and sales experience as well as share best practices.
Scott Thistle, principal owner and president of Halen Homes and Harbor Homes, has been a leading member of the homebuilding and real estate community in Southeastern Wisconsin for over twenty years.

There he found his passion for homebuilding and later began honing his skills as a carpenter.
After serving in the United States Marine Corps during the Gulf War, Scott graduated from St. John’s University in New York and received his master’s degree in business from the University of Texas, San Antonio. Scott’s experience in real estate and new construction has taken him all over the country, working in various senior management roles for some of the nation’s largest homebuilding companies.
In addition to running two successful home building companies, Scott is a member of the Metropolitan Builders Association’s (MBA) Board of Directors and served as president of the MBA in 2012.
