As the new Marketing Manager for Trinity Homes, Natalie Smith says she was attracted to working for the home builder because “they are a local Columbus home builder that builds local neighborhoods and gives back to the local community.”
Born and raised in Clinton, Ohio, Natalie attended the University of Akron where she was a proud member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority. She credits a position with CBS Radio in Cleveland (now Entercom Communications) with engaging her in the world of events and promotional planning and sparking her love for marketing. After moving to Columbus seven years ago, Natalie began her journey in the housing industry as a member of the marketing team for a local multi-family developer.
In her role with Trinity Homes, Natalie says she is excited to be part of a company that promotes a positive culture, and she loves how much the company gives back to the local community. “There are no other builders in the area that are truly local and give back to their community the way that Geroge Skestos does.”
Natalie points to Gigi’s as a shining example of the way Trinity Homes gives back to its local community. A nonprofit organization founded by George and Tina Skestos in 2018, Gigi’s is dedicated to improving the lives of shelter dogs. With the goal of helping all adoptable shelter dogs in the United States find a happy home, Gigi’s connects the expertise of national leaders in dog sheltering and adoption to lead a collaborative resource network that includes a 15,000-square-foot dog campus in Central Ohio.
In addition to the work being done at Gigi’s, Natalie notes that there are many exciting things happening at Trinity Homes, and she is looking forward to helping individuals learn about Trinity Homes and begin building their dream homes. Trinity Homes will be launching a new website this Summer that will include helpful information for homebuyers and offer a better user experience. And, of course, the home builder will continue to build single-family homes throughout some of Central Ohio’s most popular communities.
Among the communities that Trinity Homes is building are Holton Run in Grove City, Howard Farms in Delaware, Cheshire Woods in Galena, and more. And for homebuyers looking for a brand new home without the hassle of yard work, Trinity Homes offers two low-maintenance communities, Woodside at Holton Run in Grove City and Lakeside at Avondale in Dublin.
In her free time, Natalie loves to travel and explore new places. “I am hoping in 2021 I will be able to make up for my lack of world exploration in 2020!” When she is not traveling, Natalie teaches dance classes to students ages 3-18, enjoys time with family and friends, hiking, or eating her way through all of the delicious restaurants Columbus has to offer.
I absolutely love going to professional sports games! No, I am not a huge sports buff but I love the energy and excitement that fills a stadium or arena during games. The first professional game I ever attended was a Cleveland Cavaliers game in October of 2006 when I was a member of the Cavalier Girls Dance Team.
I am a True Crime Junkie! Yes, that is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to along with True Crime Garage, and Morbid. If I am not diving into the creepy world of true crime I am typically tuning into a marketing discussion on Clubhouse (@natnics).
