Member of the Month: Allison Beasley, Capital Homes

We’d like to introduce you all to our newest member of the month, Allison Beasley! Allison is the Marketing Director for Capital Homes, which is in the midst of a full rebrand and an overall hectic time for the housing industry. Capital Homes is committed to providing the best new home building process possible. The company was founded in Owasso, Oklahoma, as a way to assist friends, neighbors, and the community to own affordable homes without sacrificing quality craftsmanship, energy-efficiency, or aesthetics. They have over 30 years’ worth of proven experience as one of Oklahoma’s leading home builders and are committed to staying true to their roots in the products they offer, choice of vendors, and interactions with our clients, communities, and each other. 


What do you do? Tell us a little bit about your company.

I do marketing for Capital Homes, a home builder based in Owasso, OK with communities and homes across Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Owasso, Sand Springs, and Bixby. My goal is to help people who may be looking to buy a home learn about how easy it can be to build new. Especially in today’s market where there are very few existing homes on the market and costly bidding wars, new construction is a great answer for so many people!


What is your typical weekday routine?

No two days are exactly the same. Depending on what needs to be done, I might be at The Root, working from home, or out visiting one of our model homes or our new Design Center! Or any mixture. It’s flexible and fresh and I just love it! 


What is the best part of your job?

I love the variety of projects I get to work on, and the people I get to work with. It just makes everything more fun.


What was the most important chance encounter you’ve had?

Probably meeting my friend Sean – he’s a gifted connector of people! I happened to meet him working on the “Shop Tulsa” campaign around Christmas time about 10 years ago. I was managing the event, and he was promoting a line of yoga clothes there (and one of his ‘models’ for the event became one of my dearest friends.) He also introduced me to many other friends I still have today, and he’s even the reason I met my husband. He persuaded me to come to an event one day after work at the Stokely Event Center, luring me with free barbecue and beer, and was persistent, despite my protests. And that’s where I met the love of my life.


What’s one thing you’re learning now, and why is it important?

I’m learning how to let go of the little things that aren’t worth stressing over. With a baby at home, a full-time job, and lots going on all the time, it’s becoming an increasingly valuable skill to give myself grace and understand what’s in my control, what’s not; what matters, and what doesn’t; and what’s really worth losing sleep over (answer: almost nothing!) 


What trend do you hope makes a comeback?

Grunge. I just want an oversized flannel shirt tied around my waist at all times. That’s all. 


Would you survive a zombie apocalypse? How?

Yes, but only because I’m lucky to have extremely talented and resourceful friends and family. I wouldn’t last a minute on my own! 


What is one of your favorite things about being a member of the root coworking?

I love the casual and upbeat feel. It’s nice to walk into a bright, friendly space filled with movers and shakers. But the amenities I’ve grown accustomed to are the location, the snacks, and, importantly, the coffee!
