Miller & Smith Launches “First Look” With Interactive Home Model Workshops & Showrooms

Posted on January 28, 2019 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Unique Open House Events Designed to Reimagine the Home Model Experience

MCLEAN, VA, (January 29, 2019)Miller & Smith, the Washington region’s most award-winning home builder and real estate developer, is pleased to introduce FIRST LOOK, a series of open house workshops & new home showrooms. The unique open house events are designed to provide potential homebuyers with an immersive experience and hands-on learning environment in new model homes and regional communities.

FIRST LOOK is not only the start to a homebuyer’s story but ties into a variety of ‘firsts’ in a new home – first family meal, first home project or even the first bedtime story,” says Doug Smith, President of Miller & Smith. “This spring, we’re thrilled to engage homebuyers by exploring a variety of ‘firsts’ in a new home with a set of educational pop-up workshops, showrooms and partnerships.”

FIRST LOOK will be held across six selected Miller & Smith communities and 11 new model homes in Maryland and Virginia. Unlike typical showrooms, the Miller & Smith FIRST LOOK models will become a hub for homebuyers and their families to roam free, interact with local community partners, play, build, listen and learn. Visitors can see, smell, taste and touch their new home for a truly immersive experience. During the spring promotional campaign, homebuyers can enjoy up to $25,000 in FIRST LOOK perks with a purchase within 60 days.

The FIRST LOOK chef-driven workshops will feature a series of local chefs demonstrating their favorite family recipes scheduled for Saturday, February 9 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at:
