Foxridge Homes BC Wins Big at 2022 Georgie Awards
Vancouver, BC – Foxridge Homes BC was recognized for excellence in the homebuilding industry on June 4th, winning three awards at the 30th annual Georgie Awards. Recognizing the best home builders in the province by
the Canadian Homebuilders Association – BC Region, award winners are selected by a panel of industry judges.
With a total of seven nominations, Foxridge Homes BC earned awards in three categories: The Westbrooke at Willoughby community in Langley, Edgestone’s Glenmore Showhome in Surrey’s Grandview Heights neighbourhood, and Foxridge Homes BC’s
new corporate website.
These honours come after Foxridge Homes BC won the Avid Benchmark Award for Customer Service last month.
Gary Mertens, Regional Vice President, Qualico BC and VP of Foxridge Homes BC, said the awards speak to the dedication of their passionate team working together to put the customer first.
“There’s a lot of hard work, thought and consideration that goes into designing our homes and communities, and developing customer relationships,” Gary said.
“It’s a team effort that makes everything come together. It’s also a reflection of our willingness to listen to customer feedback and implement changes wherever we can to improve our product.”
Best Single-Family Home Production Development – Westbrooke at Willoughby, Langley, BC
Located in Langley’s historic Willoughby community, Westbrooke is one of Qualico’s largest master-planned single-family home developments. The community is designed with connectivity in mind, with an assortment of elegant single-family homes and freehold row homes including non-strata duplexes, triplexes, and quadplexes within walking distance to Willoughby Town Centre – a bustling community hub – also developed by Qualico – consisting of over 40 shops, restaurants, services, entertainment options, and pedestrian plazas.
Each of the housing options in Westbrooke features the homebuilder’s style and craftsmanship, with spacious open-concept designs, welcoming double-height entries, beautiful kitchens, and high-end finishes. Westbrooke is also home to the new Donna
Gabriel Robins Elementary School, a pocket park, and an ecological greenway that will connect the development’s eight phases.
Sustainability is built into every aspect of Westbrooke, from energy-efficient homes to an innovative award-winning underground stormwater detention facility.
“We’re also working on our first Net Zero home model for the next phase of Westbrook. Once built, it will be the first production single-family home to reach this standard in the lower mainland,” said Gary.
All the homes in Westbrooke are built to rigorous energy efficiency standards, achieving a minimum step three BC building code, with many achieving step four.
Best Single Family Detached Home up to 2,500 Sq. Ft. – Glenmore Show Home in Edgestone – Surrey, BC
Located in Surrey’s Grandview Heights, the dazzling open-concept, four-bedroom showhome blends West-Coast architecture with a modern farmhouse theme
Boasting a spacious floor plan, double-height great room, oversized windows, and stylish gourmet kitchen, the home is a perfect place for relaxing with family or entertaining guests. Every detail – from storage to appliances, cabinets, engineered
hardwood flooring, quartz countertops, and designer LED light fixtures – is thoughtfully implemented and customizable to taste. A finished basement offers a variety of floorplan options such as an additional bedroom, den, or flexible home office.
The level of customization Foxridge offers sets them apart from its competitors in the Metro Vancouver housing marketing, said Agata Webster, Marketing Manager, Foxridge BC.
“We give our homebuyers a lot of options to help them personalize their home. Everything from finishes and flooring colours to appliances and even the exterior elements can be customized so that no two homes are ever the same,” Agata said.
Best Corporate Project Website – FoxridgeHomesBC.com
To better serve today’s homebuyers, Foxridge Homes BC redesigned its website with a focus on simplicity and enhancing the user experience. The online experience the website offers homebuyers better represents
what Foxridge is all about.
“We wanted the new website to reflect the level of quality Foxridge delivers. The product, the brand, the craftsmanship – we strived to match that in the digital realm to better showcase the value Foxridge brings to every project,” said
Amie Tran, Marketing Manager, Foxridge Homes BC, during the development and launch of the website.
The new site features high-quality videos, 360 tours and photography, embedded maps, and intuitive navigation to help customers find the perfect new home. A “sticky” call-to-action registration button encourages visitors to sign up and be the first to hear about new releases, launches, and pricing.
