Awesome Customer Service is Part of ICI Homes’ DNA

In the third blog of our series on how ICI Homes earns such eye-opening customer service ratings — a sparkling 96 percent as of this writing — let’s review East Central Florida Division President Samuel D. Morrisett’s Part I summation of how we approach customer satisfaction.

“There are three things that are critical,” Morrisett says of customers’ expectations. “They want the home they choose to be built on time, they want it delivered 100 percent complete at closing, and they want timely warranty service.”

Let’s use Morrisett’s stomping grounds as a case study.

Attitude and Expertise: ICI Homes’ Top Customer Service Tools

Earlier on the ICI Homes Blog, we discussed the importance of homebuilders’ customer service ratings and how our own — at 96 percent — leaves the current industry standard in its dust.

We’re extremely grateful for the many homeowners willing to give us a big thumbs-up.

But how does that happen?

It has much to do with ICI Homes’ history and mandates as it does with performance.

Here’s why attitude and expertise are two of our top customer service tools.

Pssst! People Are Moving to These Florida Places

Searching for a new custom Florida home? We’ve got some good news for you. The Sunshine State is home to several of the statistically rated “best places to move” in 2019.

Actually, it’s been a top North American destination since the late 19th century. But modern-day people on the move think so too, and we at ICI Homes are here with one of the more recent studies that proves it.

In late May 2019, U.S. News & World Report published, “The 25 Best Places People are Moving to in 2019.” The company’s editors and researchers mined extensive U.S. Census Bureau data […]

Food Brings Hope is a non-profit that provides assistance for hundreds of homeless and economically disadvantaged children in Volusia and Flagler counties.

Our Guide to St. Augustine’s Historic District

St. Augustine. It’s one of the oldest places in the United States and one of the most heavily visited.

We at ICI Homes promise it’s worth it. The Ancient City is less than 50 miles south of Jacksonville and under 100 miles north of Daytona Beach. That makes it the perfect day trip for residents in many of our communities! It’s the nation’s oldest city (founded in 1565) and contains many structures that are “the oldest” in some guise.

You’ll find six centuries of architecture, history and just plain “wow” moments. It’s also easy to find great photo opportunities and food and drink.
