Cretin Townsend Homes?!? How Did That Happen?
There was shift in the local home building market a couple of weeks ago. The area’s two largest on your site builders suddenly became one. Well, it wasn’t suddenly but it appeared that way. Customers searching for a builder online came across a weird thing-Cretin Townsend Homes. Weren’t those guys just competing against each other? What happened?
Eddie Cretin and Joe Townsend were business partners at Cretin Homes for over 20 years. Late last year, Cretin decided it was time to retire and he thought that Townsend was the perfect person to take over the business and help carry on his legacy. The two worked out a purchase agreement and Cretin Townsend Homes was established earlier this year.
“First and foremost, we congratulate Mr. Cretin on his retirement. He built a great company that served many, many customers over the years. He deserves recognition for all of his success, so his name will be part of our company,” Townsend said. “At the same time, we are excited about the future of Cretin Townsend Homes and how we can better serve our customers. The value that we can offer is even better now with the volume of homes we have. Our team will stay focused on what has made us successful-giving our customers a great value and a great experience.”
Townsend stressed that he and his team have worked hard to establish a great reputation in the many communities that Cretin Townsend serves. “In many of the places we build, word of mouth is more important than traditional advertising. That’s why we focus primarily on our customers and their satisfaction. We strive for excellence every day.”
