About Models Group

Buying a House is a major decision on both Emotional and Economic fronts. It is rare that all one interests are addressed, let alone met. Therefore my wife and I are delighted that our decision to trust and purchase a flat in a Models building turned out well. What was promised was delivered and the building construction quality is excellent. The entire process was smooth and taken care of by the Models Builders office with clear communication, trust and flexibility. All legal and municipal requirements were handled by them, and the building efficiently transferred to the building society. The most delightful aspect was the post-sale support and hand-holding. We would not hesitate to recommend Models Builders to our friends and acquantances.

About Models Group

A home buy is perhaps the biggest commercial decision a family takes in a life time. As a buyer of first one ,then two, and then three premium flats from Models you can gather the kind of confidence you provide to home owners like me. I have bought and sold many flats in my 36 years of corporate life all over India from builders and i can say without doubt that the professionalism Models ,and specially you, show is way better than any other builder i have known. What you promise you deliver and also try your best to accommodate all our requests if it is possible to so. Buying a flat entails lots of time ,money ,misunderstandings and angst which were so easily and comfortably dealt with by you specially and Models. Customer happiness is something your culture is and one leaves your office feeling more as if he has dealt with a well wisher than a builder. The biggest positive you have is that you always asked us not to worry on anything and you meant it by trying to accommodate our needs as much as you could. My experience with builders has been to the contrary where almost always one was undelivered what was promised and what was also in agreement. The whole staff of Models and even Peter(Despite his busy schedules) always give you the confidence that your investments are both safe and wise Clara joins me in wishing Models all the very best for your future and request you to continue providing the same service and quality for many many years more.

About Models Group

I moved into my first Models home, Models Estate Phase 2 in early 2000. Over the years I introduced Models Harmony to my parents. And was so delighted with them, that we bought into Models Status and Models Elite. I know Models Constructions to be very good people, helpful and kind. Their structures stand tall and proud in a testimony to work well done. Models residents will vouch for after sales service even years after the flats have been handed over. I have seen their employees working with them over decades – testimony that it is indeed a model organisation. Privileged to be a Models resident.

About Models Group

We purchased an apartment at Marine Vistas from Models,a Peter Vaz enterprise. This selection of a Models unit was done after visits to a number of new developments being built in the vicinity. We were very specific in our requirements. Peter’s staff went out of their way to accomodate us. Alterations as required were done and completed on a timely basis.Our architect confirmed to us that materials used in construction were of a very high quality. Today, three years later, the building and our unit is in excellent shape.Our unit has not required any repairs to date.The building is managed very professionally and all in all improved our quality of life— thanks to Peter and his staff.
