My wife and I are more than happy with The Tuckerman Home Group. I worked closely with Craig Tuckerman through the entire building process. He was extremely helpful as well as skilled in all the aspects of home construction. If we were building again, Craig Tuckerman would be my first call.

Rising Prices in the USA Today

Written by

Big City Average: Home Prices Up 9.3%

While this USA Today story covers developments nationwide, several aspects pertain here in Central Ohio.  The highlights: Case-Schiller study shows prices up 9.3% from February 2012; Tight supply of homes is driving force in higher prices; Prices remain 29% below the peak in 2006.  We can add that for a builder of fine new homes, increased prices for lumber, finishes, and labor have begun to trickle down to the consumer.  While not a significant component of higher prices, Ohio residential codes were updated at the beginning of the year and mandate better quality homes.

Craig was able to take my plans and build two awesome town homes. Both units have always been fully rented - a fact I attribute in large part to the build quality. Craig was also able to build the units on a tight urban lot and work around difficult neighborhood issues. Craig was always professional and always available even years later when I had questions. I highly recommend him!

Mindful Maintenance #3: Fall Checklist

Written by

We should say 'mind-fall' maintenance.

This autumn, and it feels like autumn today, you can easily avoid home maintenance headaches that inevitably would have erupted in emergencies right before Saturday kickoff.  This episode of The Tuckerman Home Group's Mindful Maintenance series covers gutters, furnaces, weather-stripping, sprinklers, chimneys, and basic safety.

To Whom It May Concern:
 
It is my understanding that The Tuckerman Home Group, Inc. has been nominated for some distinctive awards within the building industry and as a supplier for their organization I wanted to share a few comments about my experience with them as a customer.  I have been working with Craig Tuckerman and his team for a little over a year now and I can say that the most distinctive quality that permeates their entire organization is professionalism.  It extends from Craig to Phil, his job superintendent, to Lisa working in the sales model and to the other crews working on the site; everyone always handles themselves with the utmost degree of professionalism.  Having worked in the building/construction industry for over 10-years, this is not something I always get to see and appreciate in my customers.  
 
Looking at their company from a vendor standpoint The Tuckerman Home Group, Inc. is excellent at communicating with me frequently and in a timely manner.  In my business as their lighting supplier my success greatly depends on open communication between the builders and myself.  With open communication the projects get quoted, bid, sold and installed with minimal interruptions or delays for the customer or the builder.  With Craig and particularly with Phil, this is almost always the case.  Phil is always on top of the project scheduling and as a result the jobs we work on together seem to flow smoothly and effectively both from their end and our end which is of course the ideal relationship.
 
Finally, I am their vendor so once the job is done being able to collect our receivables with minimal effort and interruption is crucial.  With The Tuckerman team, bill payment is never a problem.  Their bills are paid on time and in full.
 
I truly enjoy the relationship I have been able to build with Craig and his team and wish them the best of luck in this awards process.  Good luck!
 
Sincerely,

 

Ron Welch, LS

The Tuckerman Home Group completed a custom built house for us. The process started with us out of state and there were some issues while they implemented a new computer system, but once the build itself started and ever since the completion of the house The Tuckerman Home Group including Craig Tuckerman himself and his foreman Phil Hill have been amazing. They are very respectful, helpful, easy to communicate with, and most importantly builders of a quality home. We have had no major issues since closing with our home and those minor ones we have encountered they have been very helpful to resolve. I would definitely recommend the Tuckerman Home Group to anyone looking to build in central Ohio.

Exclusively at the New Albany Country Club

I beleive this is our finest floorplan within the category of homes featuring a first floor master suite.  What makes it unique is the combination of a completely Georgian country home exterior with a floorplan built for entertainment and family living.  Its layout and flow does not quite approach those of strict utility; quite the contrary, its conveniences are added bonuses, tastefully complementing an already stately home.  Consider, for example, the powder room off of the drop zone adjacent to the garage.  The outdoor courtyard that empties off of the breakfast and great room.  The private staircase, in lieu of a grand stair hall.  The coat, linen, and walk-in-closets.  This is a home for the good life in 2013.  Continued...

To whom it may concern:

 

The Tuckerman Home Group, and specifically Craig Tuckerman, is an example of what dedication to an organization, an industry, and a community can lead to:  A dedicated following of vendors and customers who trust your name for excellent service and fair treatment with everyone involved.  Despite not growing up in the industry, the Tuckerman Home Group has become one of the top 20 builders in Central Ohio, not necessarily in volume, but in reputation.  The Tuckerman Home Group is a registered Builder in the Building Industry Association and Craig has served as BIA President and remains active with the organization. 

 

We are in obvious difficult economic times but there is not a better representative of what the Building Industry is based than Craig Tuckerman and the associates at the Tuckerman Home Group.

Great News For Sellers!

We call it Sell-a-topia

So there may be no more exciting news for those considering selling their existing home than that within the front page of the Columbus Dispatch today.  Not only are interest rates uber-attractive, and competition from other homes on the market devestatingly low, but these factors combine to create an environment where homes are selling fast, FAST, FAST!

A highlight of the article includes the anecdote from Worthington of a seller who puts her ranch on the market on a Friday and receives two offers -- one for above asking price -- by Monday evening.

The History of New Albany

Written by

Our supplement to a Business First article featuring Craig...

Read CBF full article within.  From 1856-1980 the population of New Albany fluxuated modestly between 50 and 414 people.  In those times the great industry of the area was the New Albany Lumber Mill - originally Wilkins Mill - or fishing in the headwaters of the Rocky Fork Creek (To satisfy a nostalgic longing we are eagerly hunting photographs of this timeperiod).  How did the community go from a sleepy Hamlet to a population of almost 8,000 with some of the best schools in Ohio in three decades?  Columbus Business First interviewed Craig Tuckerman while discovering just that. 

One homebuilder continues to mine residential gold in New Albany. Craig Tuckerman, president of Tuckerman Home Group, said he continues to build new homes in New Albany for several reasons. First, new construction and buying continue to garner attention, encouraging him to purchase viable lots. Tuckerman has built more than 30 homes in New Albany, and recently purchased 11 empty lots “because we have faith the buyers are there,” he said. His company is “busy as we have ever been in New Albany,” and he expects that trend to continue. He has heard “a lot of optimism,” including from potential buyers, so said he will continue to build there.

I have been thinking about sending this email for a while but life sometimes gets in the way of things we should do.  I want to send a sincere "thank you" to you and Craig for everything you have done for us and with us over the last 14 months.  It has been great getting to know you and working with you.  I do not have any prior experience building but the experience with Tuckerman has been awesome.

First, our house has very minor things that need "fixed" or "adjusted" but mainly because the customer service has been impeccable.  We have always gotten a return call and our "issues" have always been taken care of quickly.  We have 100% confidence in the product you produce and 110% confidence if something isn't right that Tuckerman will make it right.

Living in this neighborhood and hearing the horror stories from the residents about their builder make me ecstatic Tuckerman was our builder. In this day in age where people generally only complain, I wanted to send something positive that may help remind you that you do an excellent job and are in the business for the right reasons.  So that's all :-)

Wish I could give 4 1/2 stars. Tuckerman Home Group is great to work with -- the process went smoothly, they were always available to explain things to us and were responsive, quality is very good, very reliable, we are very happy with our home. They went above and beyond in several areas. The reason for not giving 5 stars is that there were a few times when communication could've been better about certain things and that a few of their sub-contractors were not responsive or helpful (many of them, however, were fabulous). Overall, we are very happy with our home.

Coming Soon To Beautiful Kitzmiller Road!

There's a reason Les Wexner chose to build the second largest mansion in Ohio on Kitzmiller Road. 

Browse nearby property listings on Trulia and find a high-ranked location across many categories as well as glowing descriptions of homes for sale like "...nestled in park-like acres," "Enjoy scenic views of a sparkling creek," as well as "Star gaze from 3 acres with mature trees and gorgeous setting."  However, we enjoy this down-to-earth description from a joyride/motorcycle blog that also hints at why this area just outside Columbus also offers peace of mind and a sense of security.  Its all about living in the country with the convenience of city-living:

Kitzmiller starts at a bar with good drink specials and ends at a pizza joint with good pies. The road is in great condition with some 90 degree turns and lots of trees. Be careful of the speeds cause the law is watching. This road goes through a horse farm, golf course and the homestead of the CEO of Victoria Secrets.

The Columbus Comeback

Written by

From Time Magazine

If you ever wonder what kind of economic development might be accomplished in this country with more bipartisan cooperation, consider Columbus, Ohio. This low-key, Middle American metropolis of about 800,000 is becoming something of a celebrity city, talked up in a recent New York Times Magazine piece on the success of Ohio and visited more than a dozen times by presidential and vice-presidential candidates. No wonder. After taking a dive during the recession, Columbus has roared back, with the metro area creating more new jobs than any other city in Ohio over the past two years. In many ways, it's a model for what an economy can do when you admit that growth isn't about tax cuts and austerity but about both streamlining government and investing public money in the right things.

Hey Craig,
Ok first off we have moved back from Belgium (yes it was fast) and now we are living in the Woodlands, Texas.  It has taken us forever to find a home and I fully blame that on you!!  You completely spoiled us and it was so hard finding a home that met the Tuckerman standards we are used to, I just wanted you to come here and build us a house!! Obviously that was not going to happen so we finally settled on a house and are updating the entire thing.
Seriously we have decided that 7229 Place is the best house we ever had and I have a feeling nothing would ever live up to it!
Hope all is well in Ohio and business is doing good.  The houses are flying off the market, people are getting what they are asking or more depending on where it is!! It's crazy!!!
Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you.

Craig Tuckerman built our home 7 years ago and we have enjoyed living here every single day. We have highly recommended his home builders group to many friends. Whenever we had a question about anything pertaining to our home even several years after occupancy we were treated exceptionally and had all questioned answered.

Mindful Maintenance #1: Sump Pumps in Winter

Written by

Easily Avoid Wet Basements and Fried Motors

It's that time of year again, when icy cold conditions can cause a cascading home maintenance nightmare for the uninformed.  Knowledge is power and we learned this one a decade ago while observing a mysterious geyser outside one of our recently built homes in Westerville.

A Report By Chris Kirkham of The Wall Street Journal Had Us Asking...

Just how many housing units are there per person (or 1000 people) in Ohio. We can report anecdotal evidence of a shift in value that our neighbors place upon good, new development, but how much of this is driven by a real shortage of high-quality affordable homes? The article cites the top five and bottom five states for houses/1000 people. If you know Ohio's stat please let us know!

The Tuckerman Home Group built my home during the Columbus Parade of Homes several years ago. What could have been a very stressful time instead was a wonderful experience. I am pleased with the attention to detail and the quality of materials and workmanship. No job is complete without a hurdle or two, but these were handled promptly and professionally to my satisfaction. My family and I love are home. I highly recommend this home builder!

It is with a great deal of pleasure that we have the opportunity to express our complete satisfaction with the product (OUR HOME) provided by The Tuckerman Home Group and specifically our great pleasure in working with Craig Tuckerman, our builder, and Phil, the supervisor assigned to our project. We have been in our home for three years now and are so completely happy that it’s hard to put into words. Over the years we have built several houses and commercial buildings and we have never worked with any individuals that were so professional and accommodating as the team from The Tuckerman Home Group. Every small detail was handled promptly and exactly as we hoped it would be. The 6-month and 1 year follow-ups were above and beyond anything we had ever experienced from the building industry before. We have, as a result, recommended to many individuals that are looking for a home to look for one built by The Tuckerman Home Group first, as we can’t imagine any builder building a better home or being easier to work with in all stages of the process. The “no compromise” standard of quality coupled with the personal commitment to satisfying the customer is a rare and admirable combination not commonly found in today’s business world and the Tuckerman Home Group possesses these characteristics in every way imaginable.

Contracted with Tuckerman Home Group to build a house in Powell Ohio. Craig and the entire Tuckerman Home Group staff was very easy to work with. The home was customized from the standard model and we were informed of any changes or modifications along the way. We would strongly consider having Tuckerman Home Group build another home for us, if the occasion ever arose.

Because everything in our house was customized, we chose to make all the decisions -- sometimes causing delays. Craig never complained. He was always flexible, and very understanding. We particularly appreciated his suggestions and skill with details. It was a fantastic experience. We recommend him all the time.

I wanted to express our sincere appreciation for the wonderful experience thay my wife Sue and I have enjoyed while you and your excellent staff have been building our new home. The superior quality was obvious from the framing to the finishing throughout the entire construction project. Not only are the products you install amoung the best, (like Koehler) but the attention to detail and the skill of your people shines through. From our “bark” ceiling finish---even in the garage,yes! To the beauty of the hardwood floors, Craig, we could not be more pleased.

Also, your flexibility when we changed our minds and your fairness in pricing of our change-orders made the personal preferences and custom appointments a delightful difference. Additionally, we simply must mention her by name, Lisa Theado may be your builder representative, but we call her friend. She was always very supportive of you and your company but we knew when we worked with her, if we had a want or a need she was on top of it. Even when she was unable to do something, she communicated with us so we were always well informed and we knew she truly cared. Your skillful leadership and her compassionate heart, make quite a team!

Walking Around the Village

Written by

Love Where You Live!

One of the most underrated evening activities is walking to your favorite restaurant. Okay, maybe not your favorite restaurant in the entire world, but being able to lace up and walk to something -- be it a restaurant, park, or community event is overlooked as an important part of "the good life."  Check out the Village!  The Village at Hannah Farms that is.  It is not only strategically located at the corner of Gahanna and New Albany, but it also is connected via a pedestrian path to real destinations unlike some of its isolated competitor developments. The picture gallery within highlights some amazing features of this well-planned 'neighborhood' like the truly scenic walk to Hannah Park and nearby restaurants.

What are the latest developments around town in the mortgage market and the home-building industry?

What’s in? Mother-in-Law Suites.

What’s out? New Starter Homes.

A brief statement on the building industry: Good land and quality labor are in short supply. We're fortunate that we have fantastic sub-contractors hard at work on your home despite the abundance of condo and apartment projects popping up all over town. They are everywhere! We know, as we are now everywhere too. We have new projects in Bexley, Upper Arlington, Gahanna, Sunbury, Granville, and New Albany. We wrap up the mortgage market, household formation, and design trends within.

2013 Lighting Trends

Written by

Layering, LED's, Landscaping, Traditional Fixtures...Which Does Not Belong?

September 18th is National Ceiling Fan Day, and we thought that before you breeze your way right through the holiday, we could bring you industry news and customer feedback regarding lighting design, fixture styles, and new products.  The top trend this year as reported by experts far and wide is that 2013 will be the year that LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting comes in full force to practical residential applications.  The technical and cost barriers have finally broken down, and while the quality of the light emitted by these diodes has improved, here is a word of wisdom from a local home inspector:

Homeowners should look for Energy Star rated LED bulbs, which have been tested to meet EPA standards of color quality and consistency, energy efficiency, and stable performance. Inferior products may make a lot of promises but may not deliver. By replacing the bulbs in their most-used and hard-to-reach fixtures, homeowners can start saving energy - and money - right now..

CNBC: Builders Not Meeting Demand

Written by

We're Trying!

Some great analysis today on fundamental housing market dynamics as old as the hammer and nail: when demand rises and supply shrinks, prices go up.  While you don't need a degree in economics from The Ohio State University to understand this, CNBC does some great reporting on the finer points.  For instance, market segmentation between distressed properties, used homes, and new builds from builders adds some depth to the picture of rising costs.  Also of note is, despite the local market's hit in 2008, prices are on the rise everywhere--even in those areas not swamped with foreclosures like Columbus.  CNBC claims builders aren't building fast enough--if they only knew what The Tuckerman Home Group was accomplishing in Wentworth Crossing!  Read the whole article within.

Craig, 

Myself as well as my company has worked with you for a number of years now and I just wanted to write you a note of how much myself as well as my team appreciates working with you and your staff.  You guys are fair, build a great product, and are easy to communicate with.  When issues do arise you are proactive in getting them resolved, but more importantly you work with us to develop ways so the same issues can be avoided in the future.  You are one of the few builders that will always listen to what we have to say and will change what you are doing if it makes sense.  It’s nice to have a partner who listens and adjusts to what we say if it makes sense.  This goes both ways as you have had a number of good suggestions that has made my company better overall.

 

Keep up the great work and thanks for letting us be a part of your team.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jason Goldberg

So prices are up but more importantly sale volume is way up and days on the market are way down.Condominium sales, as mentioned in the article below are also way up in May.  Anecdotally, I overheard a property investor and a property manager lament the fact that there are no good rentals to be had, or none to be had without a bidding war from the Short North, to Dublin, to Westerville.
