Get to know Van Daele Homes, builder of the inspired multi-family home collections at Aspire, Enliven and Lumin at The Resort. A family-run operation with origins in Riverside, Van Daele has experienced unrivaled success across California and most recently Salt Lake City, Utah, marking the company as a top-tier builder in its industry. Through its commitment to customer satisfaction, quality and value, Van Daele makes every effort to ensure homeowners feel good about their new home.
The Van Daele story is one steeped in growth and dedication to its craft. Founded in 1987, the company grew to a sizable homebuilding venture, rising from the depths of the Great Recession of 2008 and expanding to Orange, Los Angeles and San Diego counties as well as Northern California. Since then, Van Daele has continued to flourish, growing its outstanding team and homebuilding portfolio with attached products, townhomes, high-density detached homes and conventional single-family homes and earning the title of Builder of the Year by the Building Industry Association of Southern California in 2011.
As the builder with the greatest presence at The Resort, Van Daele knew it wanted to be fully entrenched in Rancho Cucamonga’s growth story, one that encompasses both urban and suburban delights—budding arts and social scenes, a thriving economy and distinguished schools. With a location fit for virtually any homebuyer and homes tailored to their lifestyles, Van Daele recognizes the importance of its craft. Michael Van Daele, chief operating officer, says, “We put a lot of thought and heart into our floor plans, into our merchandising and into our execution because we really want the homeowner to feel like they bought something they’re excited about.”
Driven by an indomitable spirit to provide the ultimate home buying experience to customers, the talented team at Van Daele certainly stands apart by cultivating long-term relationships with their homebuyers.
Michael explains, “I know we try as hard as we can every time. We promise them that they’ll feel good about the home they buy from us, and I know our entire team doesn’t feel like that promise ends when escrow closes. That promise goes on long into the future for as long as you own your home.”
And to aid in the path to homeownership, Van Daele partners with a highly regarded nonbank consumer lender with a proven record of service. Not only does Van Daele set buyers up for success from the start, but the company also guides homebuyers along the home buying process by offering regular construction updates, private hard hat tours and additional walk-throughs prior to the home’s completion.
It’s no wonder Van Daele consistently scores 93% or higher on customer satisfaction surveys, setting the industry standard with an unmatched customer-centered approach to homebuilding.
Michael continues, “We’re not a builder that focuses a lot on winning awards or entering the competitions. We generally direct our efforts more on making sure that our homeowners are happy, and that’s ultimately the reward we want…validation from them that we did a good job and built them a good product.”
While Van Daele prides itself on fostering enduring relationships with its customers, the company has also garnered acclaim for its products by industry professionals. Most recently, Aspire was named a Gold Nugget Merit Award winner for Best Multi-Family Housing Community – 15 to 30 Du/Acre.
Van Daele has also been a leader in green building and sustainable design, providing solar options on homes in California long before the solar mandate, installing water-efficient features and utilizing drought-tolerant landscaping. And at Aspire, Enliven and Lumin at The Resort, the green features abound with Van Daele’s signature Efficient By Design®, a green building initiative that enhances your environment through energy-efficient elements, such as ENERGY STAR® appliances, smart thermostats and solar panel conduits. In addition, Van Daele offers abundant customization options through its design center to make your home even more tailor-made to you and the way you live.
With a passion for creating high-quality residences at an unparalleled value, a buyer-friendly approach to customer service and forward-looking building practices, Van Daele guarantees a home that works with you at any stage of your life.
