How long has your company been in business?
Almost 70 years and I have been owner for two years.
What services do you offer?
We are a full service, design & build renovation company. We specialize in large scale residential renovations & additions as well as custom builds.
Describe your team in 3 words.
Simply the Best
What is your company’s greatest achievement?
Employee retention. We have so many extremely long-term staff members that continue to bring passion to our projects
How long have you been a MHBA member & what type of membership?
We have been a renovator member for 23 years.
Why did you decide to join the MHBA?
As a relatively new owner, I have decided to continue our very longstanding membership with the MHBA. Ralph Oswald, the previous owner has always preached the value of membership and I couldn’t agree more. Membership holds us all to higher standards, and we really value the connections and networking we enjoy with our like minded peer group.
What is the best part about being a MHBA member?
Being involved with a great network of peers, and to know that you are being well represented at all times. All of the staff there make you feel well looked after.
What is your favourite MHBA event?
I have not yet attended the Christmas Gala, so we’ll see if it changes…but I really enjoy the fall housing forum. The educational seminars are a great value.
How has being an MHBA benefited your business?
We receive qualified leads through the website, and we find that our membership provides instant credibility and recognition with prospective clients.
What is your favourite project that your company has done?
We truly love doing additions coupled with a renovation of the existing home. The extra space we give clients, and the impact it has on their lives is so rewarding to hear. Improving the clients’ overall comfort level in their home is our primary goal.
What advice would you give to a business just starting out in your industry?
Your integrity and reputation are all you have, and they will ultimately sustain you long-term. Protect those, even if it costs a bit.
