“This award is significant because it is based on feedback from our customers, our trade partners, and our staff,” he said. “By hiring amazing people, we have been able to build excellent relationships and I believe it shows in the homes we build. I can’t say enough about the people we have on our team. They care about our customers and we care about each other; that’s truly what it takes to create an outstanding experience and finished product.”
CustomerInsight surveys all new homebuyers after one month in their new homes, as well as after 13 months. Those surveyed are asked to rate builders on things like product and service satisfaction, processes, procedures, and follow-through on promises.
Survey information from 2018 was used to calculate the scores and determine this year’s winners, along with ratings by other builders and those in the building trades. Entries are received each year from participating companies that build in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and the United States.
