When Mike and Corey Peters decided to take the jump and start up a franchise with Alair Homes, it felt like the obvious choice. In fact, it is safe to say that home-building is in their blood. After all, they had worked together for the past 15 years with their father’s family-run construction company.
We did general contracting for all of our own projects while slowly expanding our areas of construction as well as project and office management.” says Corey. And although the family business had grown to a significant size, their dad wanted to start slowing down, so when Alair approached them … they decided to start up!
“Our parents wanted to transition out, and Alair Homes reached out to us with the opportunity, so the timing was great.”
Since then, the duo has gone on to leave a trail of delighted clients in their wake. Last year in Orlando, they attended the annual Alair Homes International conference, designed specifically for everyone across the franchise, from regional partners, partners, project managers, head office staff, and preferred vendors. It is a time to reconnect with members across the Alair brand, build new relationships, and learn from each other – and a place where Mike achieved Top Project Manager and Exceptional Project Manager awards within the entire Alair Homes organization.
“Mike and Corey Peters and Alair Homes gave us the home we always wanted,” said Karen, a Brandon client wanting a basement renovation with a new bathroom, as well as a renovation to the existing upstairs bathroom. “We know we couldn’t have done this without them and knowing they looked after everything for us took so much pressure off us. They never made us feel like we had made the wrong decision and they were with us every step of the way.”
Carol and David, of Rorketon, took on a start-to-finish project with the Peters and expressed their joy at the result: “They have made our custom dream home a ‘dream come true’. Their dedication, along with their promise to see that we received a finished project, was a very fulfilling and rewarding experience for us.”
So positive have been their client experiences, in fact, that Mike and Corey have a You Tube channel devoted to client testimonials describing why their own projects were so gratifying – and there are sure to be many more to follow.
The Alair Difference
With Alair Homes, building relationships with clients is just as important as building or renovating homes. Mike and Corey have always been client-centric, and the fact that Alair Homes shares that value made it the perfect fit. They focus on the experience for the client – from the project planning to construction, they make the experience easy and painless for the client, while putting a lot of importance on trust.
“Our clients see everything we see in their project. From the quotes and estimates to the rolling financial projections. They can see whether or not the project is on time, ahead of schedule or delayed. We offer industry experience and guidance, but ultimately the client is in control. The best part about this method is that it creates certainty for the client.”
The Peters realize that the home-building industry is broken and transparency is key when it comes to creating trust. “We sit on the same side of the table as the client, not across from them. They move through the whole process with us, at a pace that they are comfortable with. We realize that this industry can be daunting and we want to make things as easy as possible on the client. It is about them, not us.”
With Alair, you will know the detailed costs, have the freedom to choose all selections and decide on who will carry out the function of your project, before it even starts. Certainty is the foundation of Alair’s Client Control and the reason why so many clients have become raving fans and repeat customers.
Their approach is built on trust and they believe that with a better understanding of their clients, they are better able to make improvements to systems, processes, and the overall client experience.
Trust Alair Homes. They will help you Live Better.
