Update on Viewings at The Reeve

We’re taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our team and our customers in light of continuing developments related to COVID-19. We have made numerous changes throughout our operation, including at The Reeve, where we are no longer holding open house events.

Instead, we will be offering viewings by appointment and providing increased digital options, including appointments by FaceTime and video chat and we will be adding new photos and videos on our website and social media channels.

We’re thinking of everyone in our communities here on Vancouver Island as well as our friends and neighbours all around the world at this time. We’re wishing everyone continued good health as we all look out for one another.

We look forward to staying connected with you.

Holiday Wishes from the Team at Mike Geric Construction!
Date / December 21, 2018

It’s almost the end of 2018 and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for being part of our community and to send you our best wishes for a wonderful festive season.

2018 has been a special year for our family business. We celebrated 50 years of home building this year, giving us a wonderful opportunity to look back at where we have come from and to look forward at a bright future. We have built more than 1,500 homes in greater Victoria over 50 years, evolving from a custom home builder into a leader in sustainable multi-family construction. Along the way, we have always kept our customers at the heart of everything we do and that is reflected in the quality, design and sustainability of each of the homes we build.

 

A look Back at 2018

We have been busy this year as we welcomed the newest homeowners to the Travino community in the beautiful Travino Landing building. The final phase of the community, Travino Gardens was also under construction throughout the year. It has now reached its full height and interior and exterior finishing is well underway as we move toward the completion. Travino is a legacy development that has repeatedly been recognized for innovation, sustainability and style. It will soon be home more than 250 families. Just a short distance from Travino, our latest townhouse development, The Reeve, is also under construction. The first of these beautiful three-bedroom townhomes on Viewmont Avenue will be ready for their owners to move-in by the spring of 2019. So stay tuned!

We have also been honoured to receive numerous awards in 2018 including Project of the Year and Best Condominium Development for Travino Landing at theVictoria Residential Builders Association 2018 CARE Awards. Travino Landing was also recognized with awards for Indoor Environmental Achievement & Energy Efficiency, Innovation, Best Presentation Centre, Customer Service, Best Condo and Green Builder of the Year.

 

Here’s to a Prosperous 2019!

We have LOTS of new development plans underway and look forward to sharing more with you in 2019. Until then, our team will be enjoying some time away from the office and our presentation centre over the holidays. We will be closed from Saturday December 22 through adn reopening January 2, 2019.

 

We wish you a healthy and prosperous New Year and look forward to seeing you in 2019!
