Tools

We collect detailed customer feedback using customer satisfaction surveys that reflect the the very personal nature of the home-buying customer experience. We value the complete customer experience, including the rational and emotional; quantitative and qualitative experience. Our surveys show that 85% of homebuyer dissatisfaction is rooted in issues with the construction process and not the actual home. We focus on the 5 key areas of operational performance that make-up the core home building process.

Five Key Survey Areas

  • Sales
  • Planning & Design
  • Production & Schedule
  • Finance & Closing
  • Delivery & Warranty Service

Customer Response

  • Our 60%+ response rates (to a time-consuming survey) speak for themselves.
  • We invite customer comments – personal and heartfelt details of the customer’s experience that amplify their quantitative scores.
  • Multi-step approach gives customers the format that best meets their personal preference.  Includes Digital, US Mail and Phone.  Response rates by medium.  US Mail = 55%.  Digital = 35%.  Phone = 10%.

Survey Types
