> Corey and I have been anxiously awaiting the January issue of Builder magazine to hit the streets. CBH Homes is the No. 1 builder in Idaho and ranks No. 67 nationwide on the 2007 Builder 100 list, but our company had never been featured prominently in the magazine before. Penned by senior writer John Caufield, the article highlights some of the things we’ve done at CBH Homes to remain competitive in the Treasure Valley market.
Mr. Caufield singled out our transition to Square One centers as one of our most innovative ideas. The Square One centers are a one-stop shopping experience where customers can save themselves time and money by finding information on each of our communities in that city, touring model homes, viewing over 50 floorplans and meeting with a mortgage planner onsite.
We want to thank Builder and Mr. Caufield for the article. We had a nice interview with him in November, soon after Deal of a Lifetime II, and the thing he asked us at the conclusion of the interview was “Why haven’t I heard about you before?” We laughed and said we hadn’t tried to remain a secret at the national level, but we had been really busy in Idaho, focusing on providing our customers with quality homes at unbelievably affordable prices.
