Working for YOU!

People often ask me what I enjoy most about working for a local award winning home builder, so I thought I would take a few minutes and share with you some of my experiences.

I have been a part of the Parkview Homes team now, in the capacity of Director of Sales and Marketing, for about eight years. There are many aspects of my job which I find enjoyable and rewarding. From a marketing and demographic perspective, it is always interesting to see how people find us, as they make their way into our Model Homes/Sales Centres.

With the worldwide web at everybody's fingertips, we now understand that most people walking into our Model Homes/Sales Centres have already been to our website, and have done some initial online shopping or research.

Also, over the last few years, many people walking into the Model Homes/Sales Centres and meeting me for the first time, have already been on our website and have watched some of our videos on YouTube. We film and share our videos to give our potential customers a sneak preview of many of the homes we offer. These videos are a great chance to have a look at the interior and exterior features, the layout and the unique design features of our home designs. We create these videos to be helpful, we are certainly not a professional filming company, but I really enjoy creating these videos. I like providing our online customers with the tools that will help enhance their online shopping experience.

Most people coming into the Model Homes/Sale Centres, have come in because of very specific needs or reasons. Examples of clients I work with on a weekly basis include:
  • Relocation - New Employment or Job Transfer
  • Size of Home  - Upsizing or Downsizing
  • Practicality - They are tired of fixing and putting money into an older home
  • New vs Re-sale - The beauty and convenience of a brand-new home versus a resale/used home
  • Energy Savings - Efficiency of a brand-new home and the overall cost savings
  • Design – Our new homes have very practical, functional and inspiring floor plans
  • Customization - Parkview Homes customers have the ability to customize and personalize their floor plan and alter their living spaces to meet their specific living or lifestyle requirements.
From my perspective I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people, finding out what is not working well in their current home and quickly being able to offer many helpful new home solutions. I especially love sitting down with my clients and visually walking through the floor plan with them and pointing out many of the great design attributes and features.

It's amazing how much you can accomplish in as little as 30 minutes, in terms of listening to the customer, offering helpful solutions, and putting some initial thoughts and plans together. It is a very rewarding experience for me to meet individuals, couples or families for the first time and be able to work with them to identify a suitable home to match their budget and lifestyle needs.

I recently relocated my office to our brand-new luxury executive community of Lyons Gate III, located adjacent to the desirable College Park neighbourhood, in the West End of Peterborough. I am very excited about selling this new community, as well as continuing to sell homes in all of our other remarkable communities. 

A little more information about Lyons Gate III:

The final phase of Lyons Gate III is a new executive community located in the heart of the Kawartha’s, in one of Peterborough’s most prestigious and sought after neighbourhoods. This exclusive community is offering a carefully selected line-up of luxury executive bungalow, bungaloft and two storey home designs. Each home has been meticulously designed with you you in mind;
  • All brick exteriors with premium stone accents
  • Gourmet kitchens featuring granite countertops and maple cabinetry
  • 9 ft. ceilings on the main floor
  • Oak hardwood flooring in the great room
  • Cabinet style gas fireplace
  • Open concept floor plans
and so many more fine details which come together to give you the home and extravagant lifestyle that you deserve.*

If you are considering purchasing a brand-new single detached home, executive townhome or condominium suite, it would be my pleasure to spend some time with you and your family to point out many exciting options and find your next dream home.

I invite you to give me a call or drop by my Sales Centre at 1633 Lansdowne Street West, just west of Spillsbury Drive, and discover the many joys and benefits of owning a brand-new Parkview home. For your convenience, I am also available after hours by appointment.

I look forward to meeting you.

Warm Regards,
