Ernest Assaly Award Finalist 2018

Terry Waito Homes Inc. has been named as a finalist for the 2018 Ernest Assaly Award presented by Tarion, an award that recognizes Ontario new home builders who are leaders in quality home building, innovation and community service. Of the more than 5,000 builders in Ontario, only 90 were eligible this year to submit nomination packages to Tarion. We are currently one of the four finalists.

“This award truly recognizes the cream of the crop of Ontario’s builders,” says Howard Bogach, Tarion’s President and CEO. “Chosen by Tarion’s Board of Directors and based on strict criteria, it acknowledges a builder’s ongoing commitment to their workmanship, customers, employees, community and innovation.” This is the second year the Ernest Assaly Award will be presented. The recipient will be announced at the Homeowners’ Choice Awards luncheon in Woodbridge on May 1, 2018.

The Homeowners’ Choice Awards are determined each year by new home owners who take a survey and rate their builder’s performance and customer service.

The Ernest Assaly Award is named after Tarion’s first Board Chair (1976 to 1988). He was a passionate voice for the builder’s warranty program, a highly respected award-winning builder and leader in Ontario’s residential construction industry.

“Receiving recognition for exceptional customer service is a very humbling experience, especially to be awarded this prestigious accolade for the second time. Excellence customer service is truly a team effort. There are many spokes in the wheel regarding the construction of a new home and it would not be possible without a great team of sub-trades including all the staff at Terry Waito Homes.

But most of all, a heartfelt thank you to our customers who continue to support us and trust us to build their homes.”
