Not Your Average Builder – Meet the Team
Coolman Communities has been developing property and building new homes in Valparaiso for nearly 50 years. The Coolman name means commitment to the Valparaiso community in many ways. To the families that have built homes with us, it means a pleasant building experience with complete participation…without surprises. It means getting the home you really want, with hands on consultation, and knowing the exact price of your home right now.
To the employees, the Coolman Communities name means innovation, commitment, and pride. It means treating everyone involved with professionalism and respect. It means executing a job with the highest degree of workmanship and technology available, and making every new homebuyer an integral part in building their new home.
To the team of people that makes a project happen (see “Meet the Team” above) it means eliminating boundaries, and working together to do the best job possible no matter how large or small the project. Teamwork is essential in all aspects of building a new home.
Coolman Communities construction company is an award-winning builder, recognized locally and regionally. Our president, Bob Coolman, is a past-president and founder of the local Porter County Builder’s Association, as well as past-president for the Indiana Builder’s Association.
We Listen and Respond
Our customers think we ask a lot of questions. And we do. That is because we want satisfied customers. It is our job to make sure that expectations are met and/or exceeded. At Coolman Communities a completely satisfied customer is our number 1 goal.
The best way to accomplish this is to ask questions — and really listen to the answers. Then we incorporate their needs, desires, and budget into the home design. Of course we make suggestions and contribute ideas. But once a decision is made, the customer’s wishes become our own.
Bulding Communities – Not Houses
We don’t build houses on a street; we build homes within a neighborhood. We work to create environments in which people enjoy living. It’s a total package…architecture, design, landscaping…developed with a sensitivity for people.
Every Coolman community is a result of the needs of people. We listen to what people are asking for, find an appropriate location, and create a community. It takes a lot of research, expertise and planning. Coolman’s communities are not a realization of our dreams…they are a result of your ideas.
Drive through any of our communities and you’ll see what we mean…Heritage Valley, Timberbridge, Hawthorne Hill, Walden, Keystone Commons, Aberdeen, Essex Park and The Prairie at Aberdeen. Watch for our newest community, North Hampstead.
