Customer Service in Home Building “A Breath of Fresh Air”
CUSTOMER SERVICE is always been our number one priority here at Cardinal Crest Homes. Buying a home is often the most expensive purchase you will ever make, and no one should feel that they are not getting the product they are paying for. All though we are a Kansas City home builder, we follow news about home building all across the country. This week we found a great article posted on Builder Online about Fulton homes in Arizona.
The Fulton Way
As many of you might know, Arizona is one of the states that was hit the hardest with the down turn of the housing market. Even with that opposition Fulton homes have found ways to really cater to the needs of their customers, and truly build their dream homes. The Vice President of Operations, Dennis Web says “In a lot of ways selling new homes is the same as selling mens clothing or any other retail enterprise.” If the buyer wants it, give it to him, said Webb. Fulton Homes has done what many builder have done around the country and returned to the roots of customer service”that the customer is always right” To read the rest of the article click here

Our Design Build Process
The Design Build Process with Cardinal Crest Homes a Kansas City Home Builder
A Home to Fit Your Life Style…In our first visits we like to know who our customers are, and what they will be using their houses for. We know the most basic function of a home is shelter, but in today’s fast pace world there are many ways we use our personalized spaces. Some of the questions we like our customers to ask themselves are:

,and so on and so on. These questions help us and you decide on the style of your new home, and help us mold a home to fit you. This is just one of the ways that make Cardinal Crest Homes one of the best Kansas City Builders.
What are your Financial Limits? This is an important question if not the most important question to think about. Today’s market has tipped a lot of the world upside down. It is important to us that we build a home that you can afford, even when hard times come. For this purpose we go through the ins and outs of all the hidden and apparent costs of your home. We also know the area and we know what will sell in Kansas City in the future, so your investment can be secure.
Room Planning Because we have an in house design team, we create a bubble sketch to see some of the rooms and feelings you have about your future home. A bubble sketch is a lot like a brain storming session where we throw all the ideas on the table. This gives you and us a direction you want to head in designing your custom home here in Kansas City.

Room Layout Room layout consideration often comes from a more comprehensive bubble sketch. This helps you see the flow of your house, and how each room meshes together. What is unique about Cardinal Crest Homes is that we draft in 2D and in 3D so you don’t have to be a construction professional to understand all the nooks and crannies of your home. As a Kansas City Home Builder we know the latest trends and styles and can help you in every step along the way.

Basic layout In the preliminary drawings we are just beginning to get the house layout figured out. In this phase you might know you want your master on the first floor, and that you want your closet to face the front of the house, but you are still figuring out kitchen layout. These elements are now drawn out during this phase and visualized in 2D and 3D plans.
Basic 3D Walkthroughs and Images During this stage we like to provide you with videos and images with computer animations of your home. So you can feel that flow, and lay out you have been dreaming of in your space. This gives you and us the advantage of seeing your home in 3D as it will be built, so you do not have to struggle through hard to read 2D plans.

Picking interior finishes can be a hard job, and towards the end it can become much more of a chore then an excitement. For that reason, we help you see what you pick out for your home through 3D images. We want this process to be enjoyable, and by seeing your new tile and carpet in your home before you actually make a decision, gives you that piece of mind you are looking for.
