Brookfield Residential has been named among the winners of Tarion’s 2019 Homeowners’ Choice Awards. The North American real estate firm took home top honours in the High-Rise Category, which reflects industry players with more than 100 high-rise possessions annually.
“With today’s increasingly competitive housing markets, a new home commands an even larger proportion of a person’s household income than ever before,” said Howard Bogach, President and CEO of Tarion, which administers the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act, and backstops the warranty coverage. “As prices rise, so too do homeowner expectations. What these awards recognize are the builders who have not only met, but exceeded, those expectations through service excellence.”
Tarion’s annual Homeowners’ Choice Awards are determined by satisfaction surveys sent to thousands of homeowners throughout Ontario who took possession within the year. To qualify, builders must have at least five new home possessions during the survey timeframe and a specified number of completed questionnaires must have been received.
Finalists in the High-Rise Category included:
- Branthaven Homes, Burlington
- Brookfield Residential, Markham
- Del Ridge Homes Inc., Markham
- Great Gulf Homes, Toronto
- Onni Group, Toronto
- Tridel, Toronto
“A well built home backed by excellent customer service equals a satisfied homeowner,” said Bogach. “Through Tarion’s awards program, these happy homeowners are able to recognize their builders for going the extra mile and this helps build confidence in the new home building industry as a whole. We congratulate this year’s recipients for their success in creating a positive home-buying experience that their homeowners are happy to share.”
