Green home builder is one of only eight companies across the country to receive recognition
St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 25, 2011… St. Louis-based Consort Homes, the largest certified green builder in Missouri, was recently recognized by national home builder organization Builder Partnerships for delivering one of the highest levels of customer service in the home building industry. Builder Partnerships focuses on strengthening relationships, improving communication and providing educational opportunities for builders, manufacturers and others within the home building industry. The organization presented Consort Homes with the first annual Achievement Award for Highest Distinction in customer satisfaction during the recent International Builders Show in Orlando, Fla. Consort was one of eight home building companies to receive this top honor and the only winning home builder located in the St. Louis area.
“The Builder Partnerships Achievement Award in customer satisfaction recognizes those companies that have the ability to deliver what is most important to homebuyers – quality construction and a great buying experience,” said Monica Wheaton, CEO of Builder Partnerships. “Consort Homes certainly fits that bill.”
For its inaugural Achievement Award, Builder Partnerships collaborated with Woodland, O’Brien & Associates to conduct an independent customer satisfaction survey. Those builders that had at least 93 percent of their homebuyers within the past year say they were willing to refer the company to friends or families were recognized in the Highest Distinction in Customer Satisfaction category. More than 350 builders were nominated for the award.
“We are proud to be one of only a few home builders to receive this award from Builder Partnerships,” says Ken Stricker, CEO of Consort Homes. “The service rating we received is a testament to our commitment to customer service and solidifies what customers already know – that Consort Homes provides quality homes and is the only builder for them.”
