M/I Homes of Charlotte Hosts “Business After Hours”

It was a memorable afternoon of networking in a gorgeous home.  Actually, make that two gorgeous homes.

M/I Homes of Charlotte was proud to host Business After Hours, a casual event with fun, food and networking sponsored by the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce.  About 50 Chamber members mingled and toured models of M/I’s new Hanley and Preston home plans in the Hawk’s Creek community in Fort Mill, South Carolina.


“The homes were beautiful,” says Alisha Rosenthal, communications manager for the chamber.  “And just like at any party, guests congregated in the kitchen and living room.”

The model homes provided a relaxed, intimate setting for making business contacts.  Hosting the Chamber event demonstrated how well the two-story Hanley and Preston plans work for entertaining and family living. Attendees enjoyed the chance to win door prizes including a $100 Target Gift Card.  Adding to the festivities were treats from Melanie Rowe Catering including fruit tarts, citrus meringue tarts, chocolate decadence bites, and butter rum melt-aways.


Several potential homebuyers dropped by and got to see the home plans in action.  “At this Business After Hours event, it almost felt like you were at a friend’s house,” says M/I Homes Sales Associate Paul Eagle. “Everyone had a really good time.”
