Buying a new home? You’ll need to understand a few things; size, style, floor plans, finishings, fixtures, location and view… but nothing more important than knowing who’s building it, and why.
For that, you could consider, reputation, length of time in the industry, or number of past homes built. Perhaps focus on after-sales-service and past customer satisfaction. Maybe even research how long their people have been at the company, the number of past communities they’ve developed or where they built these new homes. Each detail gives unique insight into the Developer’s true value, their character and purpose.
At the Van Maren Group, it is important that our owners are extremely happy with their new homes. For us, the best reward is having nearly a third of our communities regularly purchased by past clients from the 20,000 new homes we’ve built throughout the lower mainland, interior and beyond.
Our homeowners are incredible people. You can see their five-star reviews and watch their YouTube videos recommending our company as highly regarded developers. It is a reputation we are proud of, and something we’ve built, one homeowner at a time.
But to say that our purpose is to build new homes, may not be 100% accurate.
As a matter of fact, even after a half century in the development business, our purpose isn’t actually to build new homes… our purpose is people.
We believe that putting people at the core of what we do is the key to what we do.
It starts with the people in our company, many have been with us for more than a decade. We believe that if you have happy people, you have excellent people, and excellent people build amazing homes.
And amazing homes attract incredible homeowners.
We know that a home isn’t just a place to sleep and eat. It’s our independence, our sanctuary. It is where we live, dream, breath, feel safest, raise and nurture our families, refresh, and reenergize. It is the center of our lives. It is where we welcome our closest friends, it is where we live and we love. Our home is everything.
At Van Maren, our commitment is to provide people with all of the things a new home offers.
So you see, our purpose is people. The people who live in our homes, the people we work with, the people in our company. Yes, we are developers, but our homes are built by people for people, and this is who we are. It’s who we’ve always been.
And when you are contemplating your next new home, we hope you will consider our company, our communities, and most of all, our purpose.
