2018 Honest Abe Dealer Conference
LogHomesByJack.com Attends 2018 Honest Abe Log Homes Dealer Conference. Monday. January 29, 2018.
Jack and Sally Hutslar of LogHomesByJack.com, Independent Dealers of Honest Abe custom manufactured log and timber frame homes in Forest and Smith Mountain Lake VA, recently attended the Honest Abe Log Homes 2018 National Dealer Conference.
“Independent dealers like Jack and Sally play an integral role in the stability and success of Honest Abe,” said Jeff Clements, Vice President of Honest Abe Log Homes, a 39-year-old, family-owned company headquartered in Moss, Tennessee.
“Dealers provide guidance and support throughout the process of designing and building the log or timber home that the homeowner has only visualized.”
Clements said that each of Honest Abe’s Independent Dealers is assigned a geographic region for which they are granted exclusive dealership rights, ensuring that the entire United States is covered by the dealer network.
Jack and Sally, owners of LogHomesByJack.com, cover Bedford County, Smith Mountain Lake, Roanoke and Lynchburg in Virginia plus Forsyth and Guilford Counties in North Carolina.
The Hutslars joined other Honest Abe dealers from across the country who traveled to Cookeville, Tennessee, on Jan. 25-26 for product updates, sales training and achievement recognition.
Then on Jan. 27 the Independent Dealers visited Honest Abe’s National Headquarters and manufacturing facility in Moss, Tennessee, for a Log Raising and Mill Tour open to the public. Members of the Honest Abe team constructed a small log structure, demonstrating and describing the building process. It was standing room only, as usual.
The conference finale was a tour of the home of April and Nick Patterson, co-owners of Honest Abe. Their new home is the first to be constructed of Honest Abe’s 10” Round Log, a new offering introduced in 2017.
