Following along with Brady and Jenna on their Home Building Journey, next up: their final walk through and closing on their new home. If you missed their journey, check out part one through seven of the Meyers’ home building journey.
Final Walk Through and Closing
Closing day has finally arrived!
We headed to our FINISHED home bright and early to do our Final Walk Through with Nate from Thomsen Homes. We looked over the items that were noted at our Pre-finish Walk Through to make sure they were addressed, which they were. We had a couple floor panels in our kitchen that needed to be replaced, but the supplies hadn’t arrived yet. Everyone at Thomsen Homes was precise in making sure that things are noted and we had them within a couple weeks without having to follow up ourselves.
Paul, Construction Manager, and Steve, Assistant Construction Manager, even stopped by to check on our Walk Through to make sure that we were happy with everything we saw. They were pivotal in making sure that all of our selections were accurate and ensured that our home was built in a timely manner with precise attention to detail!
We then headed over to the Thomsen offices. First we met with Nikki, the Client Relations Manager. She walked us through the home warranty process, got us set up on the website to report any issues that may arise (which will be addressed at our one year mark), and she even shared an awesome system that sends out text reminders for things like preparing for winter! It’s nice to know that we won’t just be signing the papers today- the team at Thomsen is invested in you for the long run and want to make sure that you continue to love your home!
Finally, Dani, the Closing Officer from FM Title, came in so that we could sign on the dotted line and receive the keys to our home! She walked us through and explained everything that we were signing, which looked and sounded a lot like Spanish to me. She made sure to answer any of our questions and ensured that we were educated on what we were signing.
As we walked out of the conference room, the music was on and a large team of Thomsen Homes’ employees were gathered and waiting for us to come out! We were greeted with cheers, clapping, and hugs! It was so incredible to see and feel their genuine excitement for our new home! We weren’t just another customer- we had a team of people invested in our home building process. A team of people that we continue to be connected with. A team of people who truly care.
We are so excited to start moving in to our forever home! We were given an incredible “Welcome Home” gift complete with a card, blanket, gift cards, a touch up kit, and a voucher for a house cleaning! Let the unpacking begin!
