Building Low-rise Condominium and Adult Lifestyle Communities for Empty Nesters

About the Builder

Ask David Van Elslander to describe the term “empty nester” and you might be surprised at his answer. From his experience he has learned the term more accurately describes an individual lifestyle that imparts a relaxed and casual approach to everyday living, whether the client is forty or eighty years plus, employed or retired.

For the “empty nester”, the home purchase decision is generally one that the client is familiar with. As David reiterates, “The combination of trust in the builder’s reputation and the company’s stated standards, plus the genuine satisfaction from existing clients, is the endorsement every builder strives to achieve.” For David R. Van Elslander, owner of VanEl Condominiums, Brantford, his growing reputation and completed projects have stood him in good stead since 1988 when his construction company commenced.

David’s sense of purpose in taking his company into the specialized niche of low-rise condominium construction is a measure of his vision. Over the last decade the company has built in Brantford, Delhi, St. George, Norwich, Oxford, Brant, Haldimand, Simcoe, Port Dover and Cambridge. To date, over 800 condominium units have been completed to the satisfaction of an enthusiastic clientele.

David’s daughter Lori, started working for the company in 2003.  She did all of the customer service for his buyers; helped them customize their unit, organize any changes, completed all of the inspections and followed up with any warranty work that needed to be done.  She has moved over 200 satisfied customers into their condo, and is now also managing the construction of the site.  She has learned the organization and attention to detail it takes to complete a condominium site to the VanEl standard, and is happy to be carrying on the family business.

VanEl Condominium’s relationship with its sub-trades and suppliers have contributed in great measure to the company’s reputation for its quality image, attention to detail, solid workmanship in all aspects of construction and completion schedules that are on time - every time. Each condominium property is unique in design with an interior layout that meets the client’s needs and lifestyle.

Their 2 current layouts, the Aspen & Birch have been modified with each project, taking into account customer feedback and current trends. They can guarantee you will be impressed with their designs!

David has maintained and enhanced the customer loyalty VanEl Condominiums has generated over the past years. Taking an industrious and leadership role in this specialized niche of condominium home construction has taken on a new meaning for David Van Elslander.

As for David’s satisfied clients, they couldn’t be happier.
