Australian Achiever Award 2020

Australian Achiever Award 2020

March 2020 – MEDIA RELEASE

The judging process for the 2020 Australian Achiever Awards for Australia’s Architect Services, Building Design, Building Construction & Interior Design Services category was completed on 5th March.

Hermitage Properties Pty Ltd scored 97.06% and was awarded VIC State Winner for this category. Now into its twenty‐third year, the Australian Achiever Awards are an independent, unbiased award system based on assessment ratings from a business’s own customers. The awards provide an indication of a well‐run business where satisfied customers are a sign that a business is healthy, worthy of praise and increased custom.

The award system focuses on eight criteria, each scored separately, namely: Time Related Service, Addressing Client Needs, Care and Attention, Value, Attitude, Communication, Overall Perception and Referral. The criteria are rated individually in percentage terms and the final score is an amalgam of these. Anything above 80% overall is regarded as exceptional and reflects outstanding customer service. A complete list of all businesses who have achieved award status over the last few years can be viewed at www.achiever.com.au.

Some of the comments Australian Achiever received from Hermitage Properties clients are: “We were really happy with them. Emma and Pete went over and above, they upgraded us to a top of the range oven and sprinklers, and even stepped in and sorted out issues with our landscaper. They felt like family. We were anxious as we have never built before, but we were very reassured. The quality site manager picked up mistakes and replaced at no charge. They are customer‐focused and strive to achieve the best outcome. They were happy to make changes and help us with decisions. If anything was wrong, they fixed it right away. Their communication was great, they were open and friendly, and I was delighted that everything was delivered before time.”

“The staff at Hermitage Properties are very friendly and approachable. They helped so much with our custom design and did not charge any more for their extra help and time. They took the time to understand us and communicated very well. The staff all gave 100% to help the process and get the job done; they are assets to the company. This was my first time building a home, and they made it an easy process. It was not a burden for me, as they took the stress out of everything. I saw other builders before I chose Hermitage Homes, and they did not even compare.”
