Voted the preferred builder by new home owners.
TORONTO, May 7, 2018 /CNW/ – Presented by Tarion, The Homeowners’ Choice Awards celebrate building excellence in Ontario as chosen by new home owners. Great builders are ones that take care of their buyers long after the agreement is signed, and can be relied upon for customer service even after occupancy, as each new space is transformed into a home.
The awards recognize outstanding customer service in four builder categories: Small, Medium, Large Volume and High-Rise.
“The journey to homeownership can be bumpy or smooth depending in large part upon the builder,” said Howard Bogach, Tarion President and CEO. “These awards are an opportunity for owners of newly built homes to recognize the builders who made that journey rewarding and enjoyable through service excellence.”
Tarion has been standing behind Ontario’s new home warranty for over 40 years, and for more than a decade, it has given every new home buyer in Ontario the opportunity to rate their builder. Home buyers are asked about the level of service their builder provided before, during and after they moved into their new home. Tarion then presents a Homeowners’ Choice Award annually to great builders who receive top marks from their buyers.
As the winner of the coveted 2018 High-Rise Builder of the Year prize, Plazacorp operating as the trademark Plaza has demonstrated not only excellence in innovation, design, and workmanship, but Plaza’s signature customer care and customer service from signing to occupancy and beyond.
Survey questions focused on homeowners’ satisfaction with their builder, covering every stage in the homeowner-builder relationship – from the signing of the Agreement of Purchase and Sale, through construction and the pre-delivery period, to after-sales service.
“We’re thrilled to be named High-Rise Builder of the Year,” says Frank Schirripa, Vice President of Sales and Customer Care at Plazacorp. “We have always put lasting value and premier customer service first at Plaza, and we take great pride in being recognized by our home owners for our efforts.”
The builders behind hugely successful projects including Musée, Plaza Midtown, and the Theatre District Residence, Plaza has earned their outstanding reputation for creating unrivaled homes in sought-after urban locations.
“The relationship between builder and home owner is a sacred one,” says Scott McLellan, Senior Vice President of Plazacorp. “Your home is an integral part of your life, and we do our best to ensure all of our home owners feel valued and have their needs met at every stage.”
The winners of the Tarion Homeowners’ Choice Awards were announced on May 1st.
For over 35 years, Plaza has made quality its signature feature. Always building with a philosophy of lasting value in mind, everything from the architecture to the materials, and interiors of their condominiums are carefully selected from the start to ensure that their homes have greater market value today, and lasting quality and beauty tomorrow.
