Atlantic Home Warranty 2007 Customer Choice Awards
Fourth annual awards honour local builders
By Melanie Furlong
Three home builders walked away from the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association PEAK Awards ceremony with Atlantic Home Warranty Customer Choice Awards on Nov. 30.
Pat Mulcahy, CEO of Atlantic Home Warranty, says it was the fourth year for their Customer Choice Awards, which are entirely based on the anonymous ratings the entrants’ clients have given them in six different categories.
“The survey consists of 26 questions that deal with the homeowners’ experience with their builder in all aspects of the purchase of a new home,” says Mulcahy. “This includes the builder’s sales staff or their realtor, office and construction staff as well as the survey asks the homeowner if they would recommend the builder to family and friends who are thinking of purchasing a new home. That is the key question because builders who don’t score there are not getting referrals from the most important people-their own clients.”
Winning one of Atlantic Home Warranty’s Customer Choice Award came as a surprise to Pinehurst Development Inc.’s Todd Ching.
“We’ve entered in the competition before because it’s a good analysis tool to know where you rate with your clients based on a number of criteria,” Chings says. “My attitude was not necessarily to win an award, but to do the best job possible for our clients. I was quite encouraged because it came out at 100 per cent in all categories.”
Pinehurst Development Inc. won in the category of builder with a volume of less than 15 homes.
“I was humbled and very excited, but very surprised,” says Ching. “I’m quite thankful to my clients for having given us this recommendation.”
