What Clients Are Saying
Heartgold Homes Inc. operated by Michael Katz offered a custom build and that is what our organization wanted in the construction of our home. We wanted to work with a builder who would listen to our needs and would build a home that would function well the for residents we serve.
Our home build was delivered on time with Michael Katz taking care and attention to the details we wanted. He provided upgrades such as sun tunnels, bullnose wall corners, fixtures, counter tops and cabinets. Our agency is very pleased with the home that Heartgold Homes built and if we had the opportunity to build another home we would definitely work with Heartgold Homes Inc.
Michael elaborated a vision of community and developed a welcoming and meticulously crafted design of the site and buildings that gives every expectation of transforming that vision into a reality like a Swiss village. He worked closely with Council through the entire process in less than one year, and Council was impressed with the attentiveness and consideration that Michael gave to Council's ideas and concerns, and the responsiveness with which he adjusted his design to incorporate Council's priorities.
Throughout, Michael demonstrated a deep and extensive knowledge of municipal government issues as the regulatory and financial framework and processes within which the Town of Pilot Butte must operate. This was particularly the case when Michael worked with the Town Administrator to negotiate and finalize the Servicing Agreement governing the project's development.
Further, Michael demonstrated strong initiative in working with Council to resolve key municipal growth concerns. For example, he directly contributed to the elaboration of the Town's strategy for the development of additional wastewater capacity. And several years ago, Michael initiated and let an exercise involving all four municipalities of the White Butte region and the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority that led to a provincial task force, which confirmed that the Zehner aquifer would adequately support potable water requirements for municipal growth east of Regina for the coming 25 years.
Finally, Michael always demonstrated strong focus on results and success, and superior written and verbal communication skills, matched with an upbeat and always respectful attitude to Council regardless of the challenging circumstances and issues. His consultation and collaboration skills were crucial in enabling Council to critique and ultimately approve the Heartland Glens community design and project.
