An Evansville native since birth, Homes by Eagle owner Shane Clements understands homebuilding. His father, Tony, started Clements Construction in 1975, when Shane was just a small boy. “My father was both an inspiration and a role model to me in those early years,” said Shane.
As a young man, Shane attended the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, where he earned a degree in accounting. Using that knowledge, along with the construction expertise he gleaned from his father over the years, Shane transformed Tony’s earlier building enterprise into Homes by Eagle, a recognized leader in quality homebuilding.
Possessing a strong entrepreneurial drive, Shane firmly believes that the customer is a vital component in any home-building venture.
“I understand that at the heart of a homebuilding experience for clients is the sense that they are being heard,” said Shane. “At Eagle Construction, I will make sure that happens.”
Southern Indiana Builder’s Association Member
Shane hones his business and construction skills by being an active member of the Southern Indiana Builder’s Association. SIBA is a 300-member organization that represents every facet of homebuilding and serves as a central hub of the housing industry in Southwestern Indiana. Shane served as the group’s president in 2010, has held a position on the board of directors, and has been active on committees focusing on building codes, land development, and the annual Parade of Homes, which showcases local builders. Shane also holds an Indiana Realtor’s license.
Giving Back To The Community
A priority of Shane’s is giving back to the community. To that end, Eagle has been an integral part of major home-related fundraisers in recent years with the southwestern Indiana chapters of United Way and Easter Seals, local non-profits that assist needy and disabled adults and children.
Awards & Accolades
The quality and consistency of Eagle’s work is underscored by the awards the company has received in recent years. In 2014 and 2015, the Evansville Courier & Press recognized Homes by Eagle as the Platinum New Home Builder, the highest distinction available to only one builder per year. In addition, Eagle has been presented with 19 Parade of Homes awards since 2004 for superior construction and design features.
Shane Keeps Directly Involved With Every Home
Aside from the accolades, this experienced builder—constructing 25-30 homes a year—takes particular pride in his direct involvement in every home that Eagle builds. Shane is personally on the jobsite daily, meets every homeowner, performs quality control on every home, and serves on the local Building Codes Committee, which ensures that he is at the top of his game with regard to new and emerging code requirements.
“I recognize the mixture of excitement and apprehension that every new home builder experiences,” says Shane. “I want Eagle to serve as a partner with clients so that the homebuilding process is understandable, cost-effective, and quality-driven. To me, happy customers make happy homeowners.”
