The Holmes Group - 2017 Quality Built Builder Awards
Recognized for Partnering with Quality Built to Provide U.S. Builders with the Ultimate Inspection and Marketing Packages
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Feb. 08, 2018) -- The Holmes Approved Homes program was developed by Mike Holmes, 35-year professional contractor, and host and co-creator of the hit TV series Holmes on Homes®, Holmes Inspection and Holmes Makes It Right. The Holmes Approved Homes program was built on a foundation of integrating the right building products with the right technology, and using the right building practices to build a home that goes beyond residential standards, from construction to final inspection.
In 2017, The Holmes Group partnered with Quality Built in an effort to expand their Holmes Approved Homes program in the United States. Quality Built is the nation’s largest and most trusted third-party quality assurance inspection company, and not only inspects to Mike’s standards, but also shares the same passion as The Holmes Group with the need to Make It Right®.
The collaborative program works to provide elite builders with the ultimate inspection and marketing packages that will help them inform homeowners of the benefits of third party verification and documentation. Homeowners know and trust Mike. It is through his stamp of approval that builders are provided with a unique value proposition that will resonate with home buyers.
