April 2, 2009 – Finding the perfect new home in the perfect location is no easy task. For Shelagh Dobson and her husband, it was a search that spanned a number of months and took them all across Southern Ontario. In November 2007 they finally settled in Almonte, a “very pretty little town” just 17 minutes outside of Kanata.
Dobson credits the quality customer service of Neilcorp Homes with sealing the deal, and to this day she remembers their “responsive and personable” sales service. It was this outstanding service, along with Neilcorp Homes’ award-winning reputation, that ultimately persuaded her to move to Almonte. And the Dobson’s are not alone. “Almonte is the next big-time growth area” in the region surrounding Ottawa, according to Robert Dick, Co-Owner of Neilcorp Homes.
Neilcorp Homes has been building custom homes of outstanding quality in Almonte for over 18 years. Founded in 1990 by Almonte resident Doug McIntosh, Neilcorp Homes is now co-owned by McIntosh and his partner Robert Dick, who joined the company in 2002.
This dynamic and passionate pair has been instrumental in guiding their flourishing company – and the town of Almonte – to new heights, particularly in recent years. In 2007 Neilcorp Homes was a finalist in the Tarion Award of Excellence – a prestigious honour that saw them placed in the top five out of over 18,000 other Ontario home builders. When it comes to quality building and phenomenal service, there are few home builders that can claim to surpass Neilcorp Homes.
But what really sets Neilcorp Homes apart from their competitors is their unwavering dedication to excellence. Every Neilcorp Homes property is packed with upgrades that far exceed industry standards, and is guaranteed to be finished on time. “It’s true, we’ve never missed a closing date,” says Dick. “We make a commitment, we sign a contract, and we stick to it. We always keep our end of the agreement.”
Riverfront Estates, Neilcorp Homes’ latest Almonte community, is a case-in-point. Offering spacious oversized 60′ lots, state-of-the-art design upgrades, gorgeous flooring, fittings and hardware as well as free sessions with professional designers and opportunities to customize at no charge, Riverfront Estates truly is the entire package.
And it is a smart investment, too. Purchasing a Neilcorp Homes’ home in Almonte will get you over $100,000 in extra value than a similar home in nearby Kanata. The extensive lot size, the custom fittings, the quality craftsmanship and the various extra features all combine to make the homes in Riverfront Estates a notch above.
It’s a fact: each and every Riverfront Estates property offers more bang – and more building – for your buck. Combine this with the budding community of Almonte – with its charming main street, great schools, excellent hospital, extensive parkland, terrific bars, shops and restaurants, and unique small-town feel – and you’ve got a match made in home-buying heaven.
Whether you’re young or old, single or married, says Dobson, “it really is the perfect place to live.”
