Community Spotlight — Cast Your Line at Lilac Springs


The Community Pond Has Fresh Trout and Bass!

Our Lilac Springs community in Eagle provides a beautiful backdrop for every season, and with summertime in full swing, it’s a great time to make the most of your community pond! This tranquil oasis at the heart of Lilac Springs offers a cool respite from summer’s heat and a peaceful retreat for Southwest Idaho fish and fowl – and now that it’s been freshly stocked with trout, bluegill and bass, this is the perfect opportunity to practice your cast!


We’ve added 100 fresh trout approximately 12 to 14 inches in size, and though they ordinarily prefer cold waters, our 17-foot pond at Lilac Springs should remain cool enough to keep them comfortable. An osprey has already been spotted snagging a few of these for a snack, so if you’re an angler, don’t miss out – these trout are ready for catch-and-keep fishing today!

We’ve also added 75 bass to the Lilac Springs pond, and though they’re just 3 to 4 inches long, we expect them to grow rapidly. We want these bass to start reproducing sometime this year, so if you happen to hook one (or one of the small bluegill serving as feeder fish), please make sure to follow safe catch-and-release technique.


Since our community pond holds a private permit with the Idaho Department of Fish & Game, there’s no need to possess an Idaho State fishing license before you cast your line – but we do ask that fishing be limited to residents of Lilac Springs only.

The community pond is just one more way to enjoy fun family recreation time anytime at Lilac Springs – take advantage of it today!­­

Have questions about fishing at Lilac Springs, or about other amenities in your Coleman Homes community? We invite you to contact your HOA today!

Our Coleman Homes Team of Experts — Carriage Hill North

Our Team of Experts are just a few of the folks who help to bring your new-home dream to life – and we want to bring you a closer look behind the scenes!  Join us on Tuesdays as we highlight a team from one of our Coleman Homes communities. Today, our spotlight shines on the Team of Experts at Carriage Hill North in Nampa!

carriage hill north

Carriage Hill North is a community full of surprises.

“People are always amazed by this place when they visit us for the first time,” said Sales Coordinator Aislinn Samuel. “They can’t believe how peaceful it feels, how pretty the view is, how beautiful it looks out by the lake.”

The lake she’s referring to is Lake Lowell, a reservoir adjoining the Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge and a longtime local favorite for boating and fishing; its close proximity to Carriage Hill North is just one of the many surprising benefits of this serene South Nampa locale. Factor in the tranquil tree-lined streets, lush green landscape and majestic Owyhee Mountain views, and it’s easy to see why more and more families have begun to choose Carriage Hill North as the place they want to plant their roots.

carriage hill northAnother surprise is all the development going on at Carriage Hill North; beyond that peaceful exterior is a community that’s growing every day. Over the past year it has opened a brand-new Model Complex and Sales Center, relocated its main entrance from West Iowa to Lake Lowell Avenue, and added a brand-new monument sign.  At the same time, Coleman Homes crews have been busy with land development in Phases 5, 6 and 7, and the construction of dozens more beautiful new Woodland Collection homes.

carriage hill northAnd now there’s another bit of news at Carriage Hill North – a striking new Emerson on West Brett Drive is Coleman Homes’ entry in the 2018 Canyon County Parade of Homes. Participating in the Parade is a bit like hosting a three-week-long house party where you get to welcome hundreds of new friends, and during this particular Team of Experts meeting right in the middle of the big event, the Carriage Hill North group is pausing to catch their breath as they go over Parade details.

Over the course of an hour, Sales Managers Bo Duffin, Shaina Gorman, and Paul Vivier discuss everything from the video presentation that loops on the TV sets to the cookies they’ll serve to Parade guests on Father’s Day. Aislinn ticks through a list of supplies, and Assistant Construction Manager Sean Moen takes note of some landscaping concerns. There’s a lot of friendly chatter and good-natured jokes, but they’re all business when it comes to managing Parade responsibilities.

“We want to make sure that our Parade home stays looking great, and it takes all of us to make that happen,” Sean says.

It’s this kind of attention to detail that helped The Emerson win three second-place awards for Best Curb Appeal, Best Master Suite, and Best Decorated in this year’s Parade — and the kind that keeps Carriage Hill North a community that continues to surprise homeowners and visitors alike with its charm.

“There’s a lot to love about living out here at Carriage Hill North,” says Customer Care Representative Don Kurts, “and every person on the team works together to keep it that way.”

If you’d like to learn more about the distinctive Carriage Hill North community or meet the Team of Experts that keeps things humming behind the scenes, this is the perfect time to come out for a visit — the Canyon County Parade of Homes is going on now through Sunday, June 24!

Click here for Parade hours and more information, or come see us during regular business hours — Carriage Hill North’s Sales Center and two fully-decorated models are open daily: 10AM – 6PM Tuesday – Sunday and Monday 3PM – 6PM.  Appointments are available for earlier times and on special occasions – just call ahead.

Explore The Emerson at Carriage Hill North

Each year at the Parade of Homes, the Building Contractor’s Association showcases Southwest Idaho builders’ creations and judges them on criteria like workmanship, design, and decor — and this year, Coleman Homes is proud to announce that our Emerson at Carriage Hill North earned three second-place distinctions in the categories of “Best Curb Appeal,” “Best Decorated,” and “Best Master Suite.”

This stunning single-level plan boasts a bright, open layout full of elegant details like quartz countertops and mosaic tile – and with a soothing neutral color palette brightened by splashes of cobalt blue, it’s easy to see why this welcoming Woodland Collection home caught the judge’s eye. The Canyon County Parade of Homes is going on now through June 24, so we invite you to come by and visit The Emerson for yourself!

Our Coleman Homes Team of Experts — Online Sales Consultant Team

Here at Coleman Homes we’ve got so many different people working together to help bring your new-home dream to life, and we want to give you a closer look behind the scenes!  This week we’re highlighting our Online Sales Consultants, an amazing team that truly shines “backstage” here at Coleman Homes!

These Online Experts are 100% Real and Ready to Help You!

These days, when you encounter one of those all-too-familiar “chat” pop-ups on a website, it’s easy to assume it’s just a clever digital talk-bot that’s been programmed to simulate real conversation. But when you visit us here at, we want you to know that behind each one of our chat boxes you’ll find real a human being who is fully committed to giving you an outstanding online experience!

Because it serves as the first point of contact for most folks reaching out to us either by phone or by website, our Online Sales Consultant Team is the true “nerve center” here at Coleman Homes, juggling countless inquiries about all things pertaining to our three collections, eight communities, and twenty-nine floorplans. Their first order of business is helping people connect with a Coleman Homes community they’d like to visit — but because their hearts are keenly attuned to helping others, their days are filled with so much more!  At any moment you might find them offering driving directions to someone searching for a Sales Center, or talking school districts with a mom who’s contemplating a move. They’re happy to provide reassurance to a homeowner with questions about the construction process, and if a prospective homebuyer from out-of-state stops by the website, they’re glad to spill the inside scoop on everything from Idaho weather quirks to the best place to score a cup of coffee.

In short, these smart and insightful ladies wear a hundred different hats, and they do it all with a smile. Want to learn a little more about what goes on behind the chat box? Stick around to hear the inside story from their own words!


One of my favorite quotes is, ‘Make a customer, not a sale.’ I love this quote because it is simple, but true! My role as an Online Sales Consultant is gratifying because I truly enjoy the people I get the opportunity to talk to every day, helping to find the home of their dreams. I don’t really feel I am part of a sales team but part of a solution team, as the goal is not to sell, but to solve. It is such a privilege to get to help others, and I feel lucky to work at a job that allows me to work with others who share that same feeling!




I wanted to be a psychologist ever since I was a little kid. Briefly, I wanted to be a big CEO somewhere fancy, but I think that came from my desire to help people professionally in addition to helping them personally! Previously I worked at a large bank and credit union back east, and I also managed a fast food restaurant here in the Treasure Valley. The thing I like best about being an Online Sales Consultant is that I get to help people find a home they love or an answer to a question they have. It is a great way to fulfill my desire to help people while I finish school!





People say such amazing things, it is hard to choose just one quote that inspires me, but here is one of the many that I really love!  It was journalist Ann Curry who said, “Oh, let me breathe my last breath knowing that it mattered I was here, knowing that I made a difference.” I love knowing that what I do as an Online Sales Consultant really matters, because I have the great privilege of helping people at a very important step in their lives. It’s a very fulfilling feeling!



Jen, Emily and Stacy find real satisfaction in helping others through their role as Online Sales Consultants here at Coleman Homes, and they value the chance to connect with all of you! So next time you stop by our website and see that orange “chat” box pop up in the corner of your screen, we hope you’ll feel like you’re running into a real friend who’s happy to see you and ready to help!
