Congaree Home Center: Quality Home Builder


 Congaree Home Center named "Best in the Industry"
Lester Newton, Jerri Newton, Art Newton, Stacey Newton

Conagree Home Center was established by my grandfather and grandmother, Lester and Jerri Newton.  I am the third generation of Newton's that are involved in and own Congaree Home Center.  Lester and Jerri Newton started Congaree Home Center, Inc. in 1991.  They started this company so that they could have some thing to do while they were semi-retired and here it is 20 years later and they have built an successful company with a solid foundation that is going to last another 20 years and that I am proud to be a part of. 

To give you some insight on the owner, Lester Newton, he's a man with the biggest heart and would bend over backwards twice for anyone, yet he is stubborn and a true business man and to me the smartest businessman I know.  He believes that you always do the best you can, you treat others the way you want to be treated, and always do what's right.  At the age of 73, I have seen my poppa go to customers homes and plant them crape myrtle trees with his tractor, I have seen him spend all day with his tractor raking and backfilling in 90 degree weather around a customer's home who couldn't afford it elsewhere, and I have seen him feed up his animals on his farm at 10pm so that his customers could be 100% satisfied and taken care of no matter what time he arrived home. 

Lester saw a need in the Columbia area for a dealership to provide quality built homes at affordable prices and a company that would treat people with respect and honesty.  A year after opening, Art Newton, my father, joined the company after being in truck and car sales for over 10 years.  Art is another owner and has been a huge part of Congaree since the beginning in management and in sales.&n bsp; Art is very involved in the MHISC (Manufactured Housing Institute of South Carolina) where he has served as President and is currently a chair member. I joined the company after I graduated from LSU in 2001, and as I learned the family business I understood how much effort my grandfather and my father put into making sure that their customer's were happy and satisfied 100% with service they received and the quality of their home.  

Again I am so lucky to be able to work with my father, my grandfather, and my grandmother and the Congaree Home Center family as we learn and grow every day.  This company was started on the belief that you must treat everyone like they are a part of your family and we want each of our customers and our future customers to feel like they have been treated like they are a part of the Congaree Home Center family.
