It reflects the work that we have done and the faith that the buyers have in us. In fact, the survey has cemented our conviction to come out with more such projects that are meant for the end user and are within their reach. Affordable Housing is a mission not only for the government but also for us and we are trying our level best to contribute maximum for the completion of this mission. The survey also means that we understand the dynamics of the markets and the demands of the buyers. We are happy that we have been able to live up to the expectations of the people of the country.
What is heartening is the trust factor that is reflected in the survey. It is well known that real estate works on the trust factor as buyers are entrusting their faith in a developer by giving him the hard-earned money and expecting the value for money from them. By coming out in top ten, it is now attested by the buyers themselves that we have been able to earn their respect because of maintaining the trust through delivery of our work.”
