We are now retired and while looking at real estate we came across no 6 Lamont Place The house was already half completed and it was then we meet Tonchi and Des the owners of Diamond Residential
From our very first inspection of the house we found both Tonchi and Des to be totally professional, the attentions to detail and the workman ship was excellent. I have never forgot Tonchi saying to me on one of our subsequent visits [ they would never build anything they would not be proud to live in ] and they meant it. CONGRATULATION DIAMOND RESIDENTIAL for job well done, you have exceeded our expectations.
We would like to thank both Tonchi and Des for a great experience this is our first new home and we would have no hesitation in recommending Diamond homes, they have been very easy to deal with and have gone the extra mile to insure the whole project has been a total success.
