The finalists for best home builders in Ontario are...

Tarion has announced the finalists for the 2018 Homeowners’ Choice Awards, the only awards that give Ontario’s new-home buyers the power to have their builder recognized for excellent customer service.

Presented by Tarion, the awards recognize outstanding customer service in four builder categories: Small, Medium, Large Volume and Highrise.

“The journey to homeownership can be bumpy or smooth depending in large part upon the builder,” says 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.”

Every fall, Tarion engages a third-party research firm to conduct a province-wide customer satisfaction survey of new-home owners in their first year of ownership – specifically, homeowners who took possession between Oct. 1, 2016 and Sept. 30, 2017.

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.

Award recipients will be announced at a luncheon in Woodbridge on May 1, 2018.

The following new-home builders are finalists in the four award categories: Small, Medium, Large Volume and Highrise.

The Ernest Assaly Award is named after Tarion’s first Board Chair (1976 to 1988). He was a passionate voice for the builder’s warranty program, a highly respected award-winning builder and a leader in Ontario’s residential construction industry.
