Beautiful New Home

For 5 months my family and I had been looking for a brand new house from Airdrie all the way to Okotoks. We’ve been into many showhomes and talked to a lot of sales people but no one impressed us the way Shawna and Matthew does, they are amazing. They made us feel right at home since day one, they responded to my emails within minutes, They will stay after office hours if needed be, they will work for yoU and with you like family. Same goes to Brian and Clayton, they are awesome, they did everything perfect for our family. They explained even the tiniest details. They make sure the house is the perfect HOME for us. We have the greatest experienced working with this people, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

New house purchase

A year ago, as our family was about to grow, we were looking for a new place. We first started with Trico in Cochrane and met with Kelsey, who left us with an outstanding first impression as she was personable and professional. A few months later we decided that Cochrane wasn’t the best fit and decided to contact Trico in Crestmont West. We were very pleased to see that Kelsey was transferred there. Long story short, we decided to build a house and Kelsey was extremely thorough and diligent through the different steps. We were never caught by surprise for anything and even though the process of designing a house can be daunting, we felt in good hands and the expertise of the Trico team helped us a lot to make the right decisions.
Kelsey was also very quick to answer our questions during the whole construction process. Customer service always come down with the person you are dealing with and a different person can make a world of difference. Kelsey worked very hard and Trico should be happy to have such a customer-oriented and competent employee.
We also met with Peter who was overseeing the construction process and his insight was very valuable to make some tiny, last minute changes and he was also very quick on following up with the very few omissions and imperfections we noticed closer to possession date. By the time we received the keys, everything was fixed.
We don’t plan to move ever again but Trico has been exceeding our expectations compared to the previous builder we had.
Also, a big THANK YOU to Natalia and Ashleigh for being so nice, friendly and for the great photo updates every week! Also shoutout to Maurice who has been super duper thorough during both the orientation and possession date.
Thanks again Trico!

Also, as you noted above many other team members were instrumental in your home purchasing/building experience.

First Time Home Buyers/Builders

This was the first time we had purchased/built a home and the team at Trico was amazing to deal with. Andrew (our Area Sales Manager in Cochrane) was quick to respond to emails or messages left regarding questions we had and the weekly update emails from Kim/Natalia were what we look forwarded to every week. Their excitement too made the experience that much more special. Our building team took great pride in the work they did and made sure we were walking away with a quality home that we would love day in and day out. Tim, Ryan, and the rest of the team were meticulous, detail oriented and truly cared about our experience as opposed to getting another build done and out of the way. They made sure we took our time during our walk through to take a look at everything and make note of paint touch ups needed or any type of ding that might have occured. They were even flagging things we hadn't pointed out, which showed us they really did want to make sure we were getting what we paid for. Highly recommend as a builder and we are so happy we chose them for this exciting new chapter in our lives!

Townhouse - Verona

This was our first time buying a house and moving to a new province but Cindy made it seamless for us. She was quick and responsive to emails and was willing to work with us over the phone since we weren’t in Calgary. What drew us to Trico was that they have the best floorplans at a low price range and I’m so happy with our choice. Huge shoutout to Justine and Daren too! Will definitely recommend to family and friends back home.

Purchase of new home

Purchasing a new home is the biggest investment we made. We wanted to make sure our money is in the right direction and we are very grateful that TRICO has helped us a lot in this endeavor. From Sales, to design, to construction, to after sales and warranty service, the team has always been very helpful in all our concerns. Every aspect of the house was discussed and explained carefully. Thumbs up for Erica Lowe, Bill, Jill and Jennifer!

single house

Purchased a sigle house in Seton S.E and we are loving it..Trico team was open to changes they helped us with advice and information and we were able to put together everything we wanted and did not feel that we over spent
The team was very good with answering all our questions and keeping us informed during all the steps along the way. The possession is way early than we expect which is great because we really have to move out from our previous house.
We would definitely recommend Trico home builder's to our friends!!!

New Home in Okotoks

We took possession of our home in D'Arcy community in Okotoks in September and we've been very happy with the entire experience!
So far we have had no major issues with our home and any problem we've had was addressed quickly with no issue or stress!

The construction process and everyone we dealt with at Trico were pleasant and helpful. Would definately recommend to anyone looking to purchase a new home!

New purchase

Trico has done a great job building this house / community. I am happy with the journey from my first time stepping into the display unit until 3 weeks after possession. The staff have been very friendly and helpful (from sales to warranty and orientation). Waiting for the walkway to be completed but judging from the pace of work being done currently, I will not have to wait long!
Great

Excellent Customer Service

Adam main priority was customer service. He puts his customer interest at front in all his decision. He knows how to listen to the needs of customer. He was even answering his phone during his day off just to help customer.

He would also help you through his personal network in all your needs such as after the fact improvement or changes in your new house such as electrical and carpentry works.
