Meet the team behind David Wilson's five stars at Forest Chase

Homebuyers in Leicestershire can be assured of an industry leading service when buying with David Wilson Homes following the recent announcement of the company’s record ninth year as five star homebuilder as rated by the Home Builder’s Federation (HBF).

The accolade is based on an industry wide survey of over 52,000 buyers, with more than 90% of people questioned stating they would recommend David Wilson Homes to a friend*.

Now the team behind one of the company’s developments, Forest Chase in Leicester Forest East, lifts the lid on what makes so many of their customers want to recommend them.

A total of 60 employees are currently working at the Forest Lane development, ensuring 8,000 bricks are laid and 200 cups of tea are brewed each day for the workers.

Not only have the homes been recognised locally, but Senior Site Manager at the development Henry Patecki recently won the Supreme Award in the Large Builder category of the Pride in the Job campaign run by the NHBC.

Thanks to the successful team, quality of the properties and the location of the development, the homes have now nearly all sold out, so homebuyers are being urged to act quickly if they want to secure a dream home at Forest Chase.

Henry said:

“At Forest Chase we take a great amount of pride in the high levels of quality and service we deliver for our customers across the county and we’re proud to be a five star housebuilder.

“The homes at our development are thoughtfully designed with modern living and energy efficiency in mind, and we have a variety of house types that appeal to a range of different homeowners.

“We work hard as a team to ensure we are 100% happy with the finished product and this five star rating, as well as my previous Supreme Award, are directly a result of a group effort.”

Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said:

“To maintain more than 90% customer satisfaction for nine consecutive years shows that we build high quality homes which buyers love living in and would recommend to their friends and family.

“Our award-winning service doesn’t end once the homes have been built. We offer a number of schemes to assist homebuyers in getting on or progressing on the property ladder, including Help to Buy, Part Exchange or Movemaker.

“We’re delighted with the beautiful homes and developments we continue to build each year and it’s even more rewarding to know the customers are just as pleased with the properties.”

The HBF is the voice of the home building industry in England and Wales, with its members delivering around 80% of all the new homes built each year.

David Wilson Homes’ parent company, Barratt Developments, is the only major national housebuilder to have achieved the maximum five star rating for nine successive years.
