HOLIDAY, FLA. – Rausch Coleman Homes, the largest residential builder in Oklahoma, has selected John Heagney Public Relations to develop and implement a media relations program for its Oklahoma City division.
Founded in 1936 by Ernest R. Coleman, Rausch Coleman Homes has built more than 15,000 homes throughout Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas. Also the largest builder in Kansas, this fourth-generation company was recognized last year by Builder magazine as the nation’s 34th largest home-building company.
After building for decades in Arkansas, Rausch Coleman expanded – with an affiliated company – into the Oklahoma market in 1999, establishing operations in Tulsa. Two years later, it began building in the Oklahoma City market.
Since then, its operations have grown to 11 communities in the greater Oklahoma City area. They include: Brighton Pointe, Bryant Place, Canyon Creek and The Courtyards, all in Oklahoma City; Skyler’s Court in Edmond; and Bradford Place in Newcastle. It also builds at Colony Pointe in Piedmont; Crown Heights in Purcell; and The Orchard, Wagner Lake Estates and Meadow Lakes, all in Yukon.
