IRVINE, CA - MBK Homes provides its home buyers with one very special benefit that no other homebuilder offers: Art Mun'oz. As a customer service representative for MBK for the past four years, Art consistently wins praise from the homeowners he assists.

"I can truly say that Art is an asset to MBK Homes and the owners who rely on their services," stated Sharlene Mosley, who lives at MBK's Florentia community in Inglewood. "He followed through on my concerns in a respectful and professional manner."

"Art was very diligent and took care of my requests in a timely manner," said Toncie Johnson, a homeowner at Florentia in Inglewood.

"Art replaced a broken window in our garage door," recalled Tammy Higham of Saratoga in Castaic. "It was a difficult job because the metal frame around the window was not removable. He did a great job, which saved us from having to buy a new garage door."

Julian Krainin, who purchased an MBK home at San Abella in Stevenson Ranch, contacted Art regarding a roof leak. "We were particularly concerned because we had friends and relatives from the East Coast coming to stay with us in just over three weeks," he explained. "Art coordinated the effort of several subcontractors who completed everything satisfactorily and within our relatively tight deadline. Overall the work was conducted with a high level of skill and attention to detail."

The subject of these and many similar compliments says it's just a matter of doing his job to the best of his ability. "I always try to be courteous, respectful and empathetic to homeowners' needs," Art said, "and I'm not only concerned about their satisfaction. I myself have to be satisfied."

To achieve that goal, Art makes sure owners' issues are resolved even if he can't resolve them directly himself. He explained, "If there's a problem that involves a manufacturer's warranty, such as appliances or windows, I'll call the manufacturer and connect them with the homeowner, and I'll follow up to be certain that the problem has been taken care of." Art's motto: "Don't pass the buck."
