A RINGWOOD-based retirement builder has been received a five-star rating from customers for the third year running.

Churchill Retirement Living was awarded the mark in a survey by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) which asked owners how satisfied they were with the quality of their new property.

It also asked whether owners would recommend Churchill to a friend, and over 90 per cent said they would recommend the firm.

Managing director Clinton McCarthy said: “We are very pleased to achieve this top rating for customer satisfaction for a third year running, based on an independent survey of our owners.

“At Churchill we are constantly looking to provide the highest quality apartments and the best customer service. To know that over 90 per cent of our owners would recommend us to a friend is a credit to our team and we will now look to build on this and keep getting even better.”

The results of the survey were announced by HBF executive chairman Stewart Baseley on March 21.

“Accolades like this are great to show that we have a winning combination of happy colleagues and happy owners,” Mr McCarthy added.
