2007 Award Recipients

Winners and Finalists  

Tarion is proud to announce the winners of the 2007 Tarion Awards of Excellence: 

High-Rise Category: Tridel of Toronto, Ontario Tridel Representatives

Tridel is known for building quality high-rise condominium complexes and for developing innovative programs that help ensure high customer satisfaction on a mass scale. Tridel’s belief is that exceptional satisfaction comes from anticipating homeowner needs, rather than just reacting to them.  Among the company’s innovations is ‘MyTridelHome.com,’ a customized website that allows homeowners access to all their agreements and records, as well as a round-the-clock means for reporting their concerns.  Tridel was also Tarion’s High-Rise Builder of the Year in 2005 and 2004.

Large Volume Category: Mattamy Homes
of Oakville, Ontario Mattamy Homes

Mattamy Homes has been at the forefront of visionary new community design since 1978.  Thirty-thousand homes later, Mattamy is now Canada’s largest builder of new homes.  But size hasn’t decreased the amount of attention the company pays to keeping its customers satisfied.  High levels of service delivery can be found at all points in the new home experience – including a frame-stage walk-through during construction, to give buyers a chance to make sure that what looked good on paper is just what they had in mind.

Medium Volume Category: Noah Homes of
Kingsville, Ontario  

Integrity is the mortar that Walter Branco, the owner of Noah Homes, uses to build relationships of trust with his homeowners.  While only in business since 2003, Noah Homes has already built more than one-hundred custom homes in the Kingsville area, each of which has been created through the same hands-on approach of Walter’s.  He is constantly on-call to address homeowner issues, and he meets regularly with his customers – from the initial planning phase through construction, closing and the post move-in periods.

Small Volume Category: Menard Brothers &
Associates of Cornwall, Ontario  

In Cornwall, Ontario, the Menard Brothers name has been synonymous with quality homes and satisfied customers since 1988.  In fact, well over one-thousand homeowners, living in seven residential subdivisions, have discovered first-hand Guy and Paul Menard’s recipe for customer satisfaction – a recipe whose main ingredient is the construction of homes that are as close to perfect as possible.  Menard Brothers and Associates was a small-volume Tarion Award of Excellence Finalist in 2006 and 2005, and a Tarion Award winner in 1994.
