Coulters Take Dealer of the Year Honors for Second Time
The 2015 Honest Abe Log Homes Independent Dealership of the year is T&M Log Homes of Albany, Indiana. T&M Log Homes, owned by Tonia and Mike Coulter, is a repeat winner, also having won in 2012.
The Coulters started their dealership in 1997 after completing construction of their own Honest Abe Log Home. In addition to their log home business, Mike is a senior engineer with Rolls Royce in Indianapolis. Tonia brings a lifetime of business experience to the dealership, which she developed in her family’s hog farming operation and national distribution of their products.
“You don’t have to be around the Coulters long to see their enthusiasm for their log home business,” said David Everitt, Honest Abe Dealer Manager. “Meeting clients and helping them navigate the log home building process and making someone’s forever home a reality fuels the Coulters’ enthusiasm.”
In addition to making sales in Indiana this year, the Coulters delivered home packages to Kansas, Illinois and Ohio.
Tonia and Mike have added Kyle and Rebecca Taylor to their team to establish a Kansas presence for Honest Abe’s homes. Past clients Matt and Tara Kammann are representing T&M Log Homes in southwest Indiana. Both of these additions are examples of the Coulters’ forward thinking.
“They are building their own business as well as nurturing the business growth of others,” Everitt said. “Honest Abe Log Homes is blessed to have Independent Dealership representation like the Coulters involved in our dealership family.”
