In 2018, Stratford Building Corporation is changing to a different business model to deliver top-notch, turnkey service to our local clientele in the North Idaho and Eastern Washington region. We are excited to announce our partnership with Northstar Construction, LLC as the General Contractor for all future Stratford home projects within the local area.
John Williams, the owner of Northstar Construction, served as the Purchasing Manager for Stratford Building Corporation in excess of 11 years. Although being very valued and respected by the Stratford Team, John chose to pursue a goal of being self-employed several years ago and has been successful in his venture. John and his wife, Sandra, are great team members for Stratford and they bring firsthand knowledge of our product, logistics, and superior employees, along with great value sub-contractors. We at Stratford feel we will be able to serve our customers better with this new business model. We are very good at manufacturing a high-quality home, whereas John and his team are much better at site services.
Blake and Jessica will transition to the Sales & Marketing team at Stratford Building Corporation as we develop more relationships with reputable builders and construct even more high-quality homes in our service territory of Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and parts of Canada.
Both Blake and Jessica are dedicated to the client relations they have developed over the years at Stratford Home Center. Blake and Jessica will collaborate with John and Sandra at Northstar Construction during this transition to ensure every client they have worked with receives the best care. They will remain as support resources for all past Stratford Home Center projects.
In the past, the Stratford Home Center sales office in the Willow Lane model was open Monday-Friday 9AM-6PM and on Saturdays from 11AM-3PM for the public to freely drop in.
As of February 1st, all serious inquiries from customers wishing to build in the local area will be handled by appointment only Monday-Friday during regular business hours with Sandra and John Williams. The Willow Lane model home will still serve as a demonstration and meeting place. Over the next few months, we will transform the office at the model home into a comprehensive finishes and materials display room.
