Scott and Linda Mansfield became an authorized builder for Kent Homes when the opportunity to do so came their way as a result of circumstance. They were involved with residential real estate holdings and flipping properties for several years, but had not known much about modular construction. In trying to locate a new home for his mother, Scott visited a subdivision that she was interested in and while there, the developer showed him a completed Kent Homes modular home. At that time, the developer was the builder for Kent Homes in Eastern NL. Detailed conversation ensued about how it all works and Scott was very intrigued.
Scott and Linda decided to order a couple of modular homes from this developer, in order to complete construction themselves and sell. Shortly after, the developer met with them to state that due to changes in his personal life, he was no longer able to represent Kent Homes and be able to carry out the other real estate endeavors he was involved with. He thought Scott and Linda would be a great fit for “taking it over”. After a detailed visit to the manufacturing facility in Bouctouche, New Brunswick, Scott and Linda were impressed with Kent Homes and decided becoming the builder in Eastern NL would be a great next step in their involvement with residential construction and real estate.
