Building Quality Is More Important Than Quantity, Says Regal Crest Homes


Sometimes reduction is more.

Such is a truth of Regal Crest Homes, a 51-year-old building association that eschews covetousness in foster of quality.

“We wish to be famous as a peculiarity builder,” Art Rubino, contracts manager and selling manager of Regal Crest Homes, told a Epoch Times. “We work prolonged hours and have a illusory staff. We’ve all come adult by a ranks and sat in opposite positions over a years, from receptionist to accounts payable—we’ve all schooled by a work experiences. We’ve schooled what we need to do to make certain a residence is built right.”

Regal Crest runs a gaunt boat with usually 13 employees—all capable in a opposite facets of a construction process—who have no difficulty ensuring a construction of 350 to 400 homes annually. While Rubino admits a association could build some-more than that, he says it doesn’t wish to risk imperiling quality.

“We’re not meddlesome in building 1,000 homes a year since we won’t be means to control a quality, though we do wish to build adequate to make certain we can conduct it and make certain they’re built properly.”

Regal Crest builds houses as vast as 6,000 block feet as good as townhomes, both unchanging and stacked, though a former positively comprises a half-century aged company’s bread and butter. The houses incorporate a kind of greatest finishes found in tradition homes, and in some cases, lots are as far-reaching as 80 feet.

And among those lush builds are projects a Chinese village will have vital seductiveness in purchasing, says Rubino, as they have in a past with Upper Cornell in Markham.

“Cornell sole out in dual and a half hours in Markham final year,” he said. “People lined adult for dual and a half weeks before opening. When we had a opening in Markham, people came with chairs and yoga mats and we had a designated chairman to take names and they’d swap each 8 hours. They were all Chinese buyers.”

Observatory Hill in Richmond Hill, a corner growth between Regal Crest, Country Wide Homes, Aspen Ridge and Conservatory Group, and named after a famous district in that it’s situated that houses a country’s largest observatory, is also approaching to have a lot of Chinese buyers.

“That’s an area a Chinese will ride to since there’s a high-end propagandize there, and a Chinese village loves to buy in areas with good schools for their children” pronounced Rubino. “There are some-more Chinese people shopping in that area than non-Chinese people. The non-Chinese demeanour during malls and travel mostly since a Chinese village looks during everything. Education for family is intensely important.”

Regal Crest’s subsidy during Observatory Hill will be situated on a west side of venerated—and in-demand—Bayview Ave., north of 16 Avenue. Lot sizes are approaching to be 36, 45 and 50 feet wide.

Regal Crest will shortly launch a subsequent proviso of Upper West Side in Vaughan—like Observatory Hill, Regal Crest again partnered with Country Wide Homes, Aspen Ridge and Conservatory Group, and, this time, Townwood Homes.

“One of a flagship sites is Upper West Side during Bathurst and Major MacKenzie in Vaughan,” pronounced Rubino. “We sole out a initial proviso and they’re $2 million homes.” Rubino also combined that vital Chinese seductiveness from a initial proviso should lift over to a arriving launch.

Also of seductiveness to a Chinese village will be nonetheless another growth between Bayview Ave. and Yonge St., and only south of Bloomington Rd, called Bayview Gates.

“The site itself is an infill site, and they’re unequivocally high-demand since you’re relocating into an area that is totally developed,” continued Rubino. “It’s an enclave, a tiny parcel of land that will residence 52 units and that site will be in unequivocally high direct for a Chinese village since a demographics in that area is rarely Chinese. They’re million-dollar homes with 40-foot lots, and we’ll be rising someday in June.”

Rubino credits most of Regal Crest’s pattern accolades to interior designer, Paul Davies, who is used in all projects. As Regal Crest puts a sold importance on a vast kitchen, Davies is obliged for selecting stylish slab countertops and maximizing space, while also carrying an eye for pleasing Berber carpets, ash stairs, and even LED step lights for staircases.

Regal Crest has renowned itself from other oppulance homes with a extraneous facilities and finishes, for that Rubino credits designer Steve Hukari of RN Design Ltd.

“Steve comes adult with good ideas, he’s a unequivocally shining immature man,” pronounced Rubino. “His pattern judgment and roof configurations are unimaginable and his houses always get compliments.”

Regal Crest also has a possess décor centre on a bottom building of his Vaughan, Ontario headquarters. All 4,000 block feet are dedicated to one-on-one client meetings—and with about 450 homes sealed final year, that’s a lot of customers.

“We book a whole 4,000 block feet for them to do their colours, kitchen upgrades, tiles, granite, carpet, hardwood, trim, faucets, mouldings, fireplaces—we’ve got all we can consider of,” pronounced Rubino.

“What’s unequivocally pivotal and opposite about what we do is it’s one-on-one with a client exclusively. We do a tour, one-on-one, and we as a client have this whole place to yourself. Nobody can worry you. It’s unequivocally exclusive, and we did 450 people final year. Everybody who buys a home from us comes by here.”
