FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Floyds Knobs, Indiana – Bruce Windell of New Middletown, Indiana joins Paul Kiger Group at RE/MAX Advantage as a licensed REALTOR®
Paul Kiger Group of RE/MAX Advantage is excited to welcome Bruce Windell to the team! It’s all in the family as Bruce is married to Paul’s mother and is a well- loved member of the family. A lifelong resident of Harrison County, he brings broad professional and personal experience to this dynamic real estate team.
In 2009, after 37 years as a chemical operator for Rohm and Hass, Bruce retired and took a nice long break while enjoying great travel and lots of golf. By 2015 he got a little restless and began driving for Fed Ex because “driving and talking to people are two of my favorite things”. His routes through Harrison, Crawford and Washington Counties expanded his already deep ties to Southern Indiana.
Bruce, an Air Force Reserves veteran, served on the Corydon Planning and Zoning Commission for over 8 years and was instrumental in the 2004 Comprehensive Plan which guided the actions and decisions on the use of Corydon’s land. His role as a Zoning Board member was a challenge he thoroughly enjoyed. His commitment to preserving Corydon as a great place to live guided his opinions and votes. He also served the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission as a Harrison County Board member.
These days, Bruce enjoys his morning coffee with friends at McDonalds, lots of time with his wife Linda and their combined 7 children and 18 grandchildren, and his Masonic membership in Corydon. He attends and volunteers regularly at Northside Christian Church. And of course, his golf game is still important!
Bruce kicks off 2018 with a new adventure as a licensed REALTOR®. His vast professional experience and deep community ties combined with the support of his Paul Kiger Group teammates ensure that his adventure will become a successful venture!
Celebration served as official start to development of Jeffersonville community
PREMIER HOMES hosted a ground-breaking ceremony in late October at 4029 Herb Lewis Road in Jeffersonville to celebrate the official start to the development of Ellingsworth Commons.
“We look forward to celebrating the beginning of our development of this one-of-a-kind lifestyle community,” said Premier Homes President Jeff Corbett. “Ellingsworth Commons also will improve the quality of life for area residents by increasing the tax base, providing economic growth by encouraging new businesses and addressing the growing housing need due to job growth in Jeffersonville.”
David Blankenbeker, a local surveyor and land planner, worked to develop Ellingsworth Commons by employing some of the concepts put forth by Randall Arendt, author of Rural by Design and a national-recognized expert on creative development design. The property is bounded by Port Road, Stonelilly Drive, Herb Lewis Road and Middle Road. Located off I-265 in Jeffersonville – mere minutes from Louisville – Ellingsworth Commons is a sprawling development that will feature numerous green spaces, three lakes, playgrounds, parks, walking and biking trails, a clubhouse and pool, and more than 500 lots on nearly 170 acres of land. Homes in the family-friendly community will range in style, including craftsman, brick and stone. Prices start at $180,000.
“This is something Southern Indiana has never seen before,” said Premier Homes Sales Manager Cat Stevens. “Ellingsworth Commons is about encouraging camaraderie with your neighbors. This is a lifestyle; this is creating a community.”
