Best Website by a Builder

Customers are now able to get the information they need to make educated buying decisions. “http://www.GoMSH.com has been a great resource for our customers.” said McClure. “Our home buyers can save time and learn more about us whenever they visit our website.”
Best Selection or Design Center
Main Street Homes’ state-of-the-art 3,700 square foot Design Studio has been a fabulous tool for customers building a new home. “The Design Studio is focused on displaying affordable luxury,” explains Mr. McClure. “Our average home sells in the mid $300s. We want our customers to be excited about the included features built into their homes, while giving them the opportunity to add additional features and choices in one convenient location.” Customers come to Main Street’s new location at the intersection of Rt. 288 and Route 60 (Midlothian Turnpike) in the New Watkins Center to personalize their home in the Design Studio. “The concept of affordable luxury and design experience is displayed throughout the Design Studio,” added Mr. McClure. “We use a variety of displays, including interactive displays built for customer use, high performing products shown in logical patterns, and vignettes to generate design ideas.”
Main Street Homes set out to tell their story in a media format that customers are used to seeing everyday- video. In order to tell the Main Street Homes story they included the main characters - their customers. The Video that resulted highlights the Customer Experience from the perspective of our customers. You can watch the video on their Video Gallery.
Building Company of the Year
“Being named Building Company of the Year by the Home Building Association is a huge honor and great responsibility.” said McClure. ”We build quality into every home and add that extra something that gives each home its own style. The goal is to have satisfied customers and offer a great home value at a fair price.”
'Value' goes beyond the initial investment. Main Street is constantly striving to improve the many components that make up 'Value' including:

3. Customer Interaction – Home design, product selection in the Design Studio and site reviews.
4. Customer Service - Satisfaction before and after the sale.
Visible proof of these four qualities can be found at every Main Steet Homes community in and around the Richmond Metro Area. They have been a leader in the 1st floor master bedroom market with a successful line of ranch and 2 story plans. Each plan is designed for maximum curb appeal, livability and value - all plans are built to meet the homeowner's needs.
