Utah House Hunting Done Wright
There are four lifetime milestones almost everyone is guaranteed to remember - purchasing their first car, getting married, the birth of a child and purchasing a home. That last milestone, while a proud moment for many, is often the most stressful and comes with the heftiest price tag.
But one Utah company is determined to make the process of shopping for, purchasing and designing your home a pleasurable, hassle free experience, and they've got the testimonials and awards under their belt to show they've laid the right foundation toward doing so.
Recently awarded Sandy City's Homebuilder of the Year award, Wright Homes prides itself on setting trends rather than following them, not only in the homes they build, but also the service they provide.
"We don't just take care of the paperwork and then say we'll see you at closing," Sales Associate Camile Egan said. "From the first day you walk in, to the day you receive your keys, there is always somebody answering your phone calls and making sure you know what's going on with your house."
A skill handed down from one generation to another, the Wright family considers home building an art form, and they take great pride in creating a quality final product that is creating, rather than simply following trends. http://www.wrighthomes.com/
"Our father built for several years, but he didn't just teach us how to build great homes. He also taught us that success isn't counted just in the bottom line, but by the legacy you leave in your wake," Wright Homes Senior Vice President Travis Wright said. "Dad instilled in us what it means to be a hard worker and we're grateful for that. He taught us the right way."
The "Wright" way means homeowners are guaranteed aesthetically pleasing, quality homes, designed to stand the test of time, and although they are built in a community setting, there is nothing cookie-cutter about these luxury developments. A brand new, state-of-the-art Design Center ensures clients get exactly what they want, from the flooring, to kitchen cabinets and countertops, lighting and fixtures; and with a highly trained interior designer on hand to assist, clients can be confident about their selections.
"Every builder that we looked at, we could not have what we wanted until we found Wright Homes," homeowner Tamara Kearl said. "And [then] we ended up getting everything we wanted. I don't think there is one thing on our wish list [we didn't' get], and it was long."
The promise to Wright Home owners is more space, more living and more savings, a promise made possible by the relationship Wright Homes maintains with their sub-contractors.
"Our subcontractors are our teammates, many of which have been with us for nearly 20 years," Wright said. "It is in large measure because of those relationships that we are able to say our product can stand the test of time."
These relationships also enable Wright Homes to offer clients more luxurious, upscale, quality homes for less. Most of what clients see in the models, are standard offerings, offerings they are no doubt pleased with, since those on the market for a second and even third home have made Wright Homes their number one choice.
In order to meet the demand for these homes, the Wright brothers have expanded from two, to five available communities in the past six months. The three new developments include Fort Herriman Cove (Herriman), where homes start in the 370's and include views of the entire Salt Lake Valley; Rushmore Park (Herriman), with 1,700 to 1,900 sq. ft. townhouses starting in the 210's and Cottam Cove (St. George), with homes starting in the low 300's. http://www.wrighthomes.com/
While the locations, views and amenities of Wright Homes vary, some things remain constant. Clients are guaranteed beautiful, quality homes, excellent service and integrity throughout the buying process.
"We understand that most of our customers will likely never make a bigger financial investment then they will with us, President Derek Wright said. "That motivates us to constantly push for perfection, and we believe our homes, service and processes are a reflection of that commitment."
