Some would say there’s simply no substitute for hands-on experience.
As far as the principals at Rivermill Homes are concerned, those are words to live by. With over 20 years as home builders in the GTA, Rivermill Homes’ partners Jeffrey Katzman, Yoram Greenblat and Paul Dasilva have definitely established a reputation as a premier company.
“The success of Rivermill Homes comes from four basic principles,” says Katzman, co-owner of Rivermill Homes. “We provide the highest standard of quality in everything that we build. We provide prime locations blended with superb design. We ensure every customer will be our best advertisement. And, most importantly, we build every home as if it was our own.”
With an outstanding long-time association with the Tarion Warranty Program and Ontario Home Builders’ Association, Rivermill Homes has consistently focused on attention to detail and excellence in customer service.
“Customer service is the cornerstone of Rivermill Homes,” Greenblat says. “That’s evident from the first moment you meet with our professional and courteous team. We will ensure that your home will meet the needs of your family and exceed your dreams.” Going beyond expectations is one of the main reasons some purchasers buy more than one home from Rivermill or recommend them to their friends and family.
The partners, as well, own a rough carpentry company, so they can offer their services to other builders as well as framing homes for themselves.
Says Dasilava: “Carpentry is the most important part of the home building process, so we have a built-in advantage and expertise that other builders do not share.”
At the same time, Katzman stresses, Rivermill Homes are extremely conscious about green building standards. As examples, he cited features at two of their current projects – Renaissance Court townhomes in Richmond Hill and Yonge View condos in North York.
“At Yonge View, on Drewry Avenue in Toronto, we have incorporated the use of collecting rainwater, then filtering it and pumping it back to toilets to conserve water,” he says. “As a standard at Renaissance, at our site at Carville Avenue and Bathurst Street, we are also installing HRV (heat recovery ventilation) units, energy-rated bathroom fans, energy-efficient light bulbs, energy-efficient appliances, high-efficient furnace systems, plus using more efficient materials, in general.”
Additionally, Katzman says, Rivermill Homes has devised a master plan to achieve the perfect setting for the development on Carville in Richmond Hill.
“In conjunction with RN Design from Vaughn, we have planned these residences down to the smallest detail, encompassing the most up-to-date homes that allow for a healthier environment, reduced maintenance costs and beautiful elevations.”
