IRVINE, CA - Outperforming homebuilders throughout the country, MBK Homes has received the highest customer service ranking in the nation from Eliant, the foremost consumer research company catering exclusively to the new home industry.

MBK's customer service score of 97.5 out of 100 was the result of surveys of hundreds of actual home buyers who purchased homes from approximately 300 builders nationwide.

How did MBK achieve this remarkable honor? "We have an amazing team," observed Donna Velasco, MBK's Division Manager of Homeowner Relations and Customer Care. "Every member of our team has a very high level of integrity and trust each other implicitly. They are empowered to do what is right for the homeowner. They love what they do, and they genuinely care."

Velasco recounted one notable example of her team's dedication: It was late on a Friday when a homeowner called in a panic upon discovering his home flooded. Senior Customer Care Associate Rick Veltman and Customer Care Associate Alex Lujon rushed to the scene and worked until 10 p.m. shutting off the water, moving furniture and saving the homeowner's valuable possessions. Veltman was supposed to be leaving on vacation that evening, but he canceled his plans to stay and help. "They took care of the homeowner first," Velasco recalled. "They didn't even bother to check if the home was covered under warranty before they took action, and once the situation was under control, they had the home completely restored within two weeks."

Hundreds of MBK homeowners have experienced the nation's best customer service. The opportunity to share that experience is now featured at seven MBK Homes neighborhoods that also offer some of Southern California's best new-home values. Come and visit one of these new-home communities today:
