Featured Homeowner: Meet Vince Fennell!
February 15, 2019
There’s something special about a toy train that immediately reminds you of the joys of childhood… And no one understands this festive cheer quite like Vince Fennell, one of our happy Champions’ Club homeowners who used to draw crowds of over 600 people into his East Greenwich home to view his magnificent train collection during the holidays.
Inspired by the toy train that his father would place around the Christmas tree every year, Vince eventually owned his own model train shop in South Jersey called Track 33, and expanded his love of trains into his own home. Today, as a resident of Champions’ Club in Magnolia, Delaware, Vince continues his tradition of bringing people together through the magic of trains… Every year, he holds 5 open houses for his train collection!
It’s no surprise that when Vince and his wife, Linda, were searching for a new home to settle into, a large and comfortable basement was a must. While looking from New Castle County to Rehoboth Beach, they stumbled upon Champions’ Club after taking a local route to avoid traffic. While touring the community and taking a look at the beautiful pool by the clubhouse, a few neighbors got out to chat with Vince and Linda, and said, “You have to move here!”
Both Vince and Linda wanted a corner lot, and it just so happens that lot 227 — the beautiful corner lot that was left in Champions’ Club — is the date of Vince’s mom’s birthday, as well as Linda’s son’s birthday. It was all meant to be! From a convenient, walk-out basement entrance to a spacious, stylish design from top to bottom, Vince and Linda instantly fell in love with their brand new home!
Best of all, both Vince and Linda found that working with McKee Builders was an absolute breeze. “McKee people are good people,” Vince says. “They don’t build a cheap quality house.” In fact, Vince and Linda were so pleased by the process that Linda is now an ambassador in the McKee office, and Vince drives the van in the Parade of Homes event. He’s also the co-chairman of the architectural committee, and speaks at SmartBuyer™ events, which are a part of an exclusive McKee Builders program that eases new buyers through the process of selling their old homes.
When asked about his absolute favorite train, Vince says it’s the one he gets next! Visit Champions’ Club today to make this community your new home! That way you can take opportunity to visit one of Vince’s open houses! We can’t wait until you hop on the Champions’ Club train!
