Unique Customer Transparency Model Driving Rapid U.S. Expansion for Home Building Franchise

After selling out all 10 building regions in its native Canada in less than three months, Alair Homes’ unique customer focused Client Control™ model is now taking a firm hold in the United States. The successful homebuilding franchise is proud to announce its continued American expansion with the signing of new Regional Partner David Nystrom. Based in Hudson, Ohio, Nystrom will bring Alair Homes’ signature quality and value to residential and commercial construction projects across Northern Ohio beginning in October.

Nystrom brings nearly two decades of residential and commercial construction experience to the rapidly growing brand. After graduating with a degree in construction management from Bowling Green State University, he began work as a contractor on heavy highway structural excavation projects. Nystrom then transitioned to work for a large, general contractor who focused mainly on investment properties. The transition helped him realize that his true desire was to become his own business owner. Seven years later, he started his own commercial real estate company, specializing in the construction and renovation of schools, libraries and hospitals. Since then, the company has expanded its services, and now specializes in custom home construction, additions and renovations. For Nystom, the opportunity to partner with Alair Homes was a perfect match.

“Alair’s proven model allows me to do what I do best: build beautiful homes across Northern Ohio. Alair’s unique Client Control™ model takes the necessary, but time consuming administrative contracting tasks off my plate and allows me to spend more time on the ground, ensuring my clients receive the highest quality materials and construction. The proprietary software used in our model also ensures that homeowners and commercial clients are involved in every facet of the decision making process. It’s a true win-win situation,” Nystrom said.

Since its inception in 2006, Alair Homes has quickly distinguished itself as the market leader in custom home building and renovations across Canada. Through partnerships with highly qualified and motivated entrepreneurs like Nystrom, the brand is now poised to build upon its strong track record of success in the United States.

After growing from one to 35 units across Canada in less than three years, Alair Homes has an even more ambitious expansion plan in place in the U.S. The home building franchise plans to bring its residential and commercial construction services to 10 states in the next year, and Ohio is a key part of the brand’s growth plan.

“The Alair Homes model centers on transparency throughout the home building process, and that begins at the top,” said Alair Homes Founder & CEO Blair McDaniel. “Our Regional Partners work from day one to knock down the traditional walls between homebuilders and clients. David Nystrom will build on that commitment to superior service and help Alair continue to transform how homeowners view the building and remodeling experience.”

Alair’s proprietary Client Control™ system builds a transparent partnership between homebuilder and client by eliminating the traditional ways of conducting construction business. In the past, contractors have either operated under a fixed price or charged “cost-plus,” a pricing model with variable costs added to a flat fee. Client Control™ eliminates the choice between the two by allowing customers to maximize involvement in the home building and renovation process, from breaking ground to turning the key.

Alair Homes has also set itself apart by developing a unique 100 percent customer-funded homebuilding model, which leaves franchisee capital untouched by construction costs and keeps business investment low. Alair’s successful corporate infrastructure, proprietary software and marketing initiatives put franchisees on the fast track to success.

“Our business structure presents unique income opportunities for talented, driven Regional Partners like David, who can still earn royalty income from all units, even without completing the jobs themselves,” McDaniel said. “Combined with our unparalleled focus on client satisfaction, Alair is poised to continue the shift away from traditional homebuilding and remodeling as we expand across the United States.”
