To celebrate the opening of our latest Stroud Homes franchise opening on the Sunshine Coast we held an open day to encourage those in the market for a new home to come and meet the Stroud team.
There was a great turnout with 20 to 30 happy faces coming through the door to talk to our newest franchisee, Dan Chapman. All while the kids were entertained with face painting and other fun and games.
Dan had a great opportunity to talk to a number of families and investors in the area about building for the first time. His first week is already looking busy as he follows up on all their queries.
He has a lot of experience in the industry, coming from a family of builders, so although he’s young Dan sees his age as a benefit for young families starting out.
“Basically I’m pretty close to the age of people purchasing their first home and hopefully they’re comforted by someone that can share those experiences. Your first home is one of the scariest decisions you can make – I’ve been there and I can help them through”, Dan said.
In fact, it was that family connection that attracted Dan to Stroud Homes. He’d seen how other builders and building companies operate and Stroud stood out as a very clear choice for him.
“Stroud were a smaller company that’s a lot more personal. They don’t treat their clients as a number – they’re more family oriented and only look for family oriented people to join their team. I wanted to get on board with that.”
