In Conversation With… Rob and Ed Lucchetta, Lucchetta Homes

It’s no secret more and more homebuyers are heading out of the GTA to points west, including the Niagara Region, set to become one of the hottest markets in Ontario this year. For Lucchetta Homes in Welland, Ont., the appeal of this area is nothing new. In fact, the homebuilder has focused on delivering top-quality construction, design, value and exceptional customer service for more than 60 years. Second generation principals Rob and Ed Lucchetta discuss proudly carrying on the tradition of their father, Ugo.

HOMES Magazine: How’s business at Lucchetta Homes these days? How are you building differently now than you were, say, 10 or 20 years ago?

Rob Lucchetta: As a boutique builder in Niagara, we have always tried to stay true to our roots by giving our customers a white glove experience when putting together the endless combinations available in a home. Building a home can be very stressful, and our team of designers and concierges work hard to make the experience an exceptional one.

We have become more environmentally conscious. Leaving a smaller carbon footprint is important. We are doing our part through building science. We have always tried to stay ahead of the building code and home science technology. All our homes are built and certified to Energy Star levels and higher. We offer Net Zero and Net Zero-ready performance for those who want tomorrow’s technology today. We waste less material through a program to consciously use all materials wisely.

We also have systems in place to streamline the process. We are in the process of implementing a customer portal that will allow for almost endless choices when we build their home. It provides a point of communication with the customer and the staff, so everyone is on the same page.

Making our customers’ experience exceptional doesn’t end once they purchase. It continues when they move into their home, from educating them on the systems and addressing any issues in a timely manner. We focus on excellent customer service as part of our success story, since there’s no better referral than a satisfied customer.

HOMES: Lucchetta Homes has been building in the Niagara Region for more than 60 years… an area which is seeing increasing interest, as buyers move westward out of the GTA in search of affordability and value. ReMax, in fact, projects Niagara will be one of the top markets in Ontario in terms of home price growth this year…

Ed Lucchetta: Our father, Ugo Lucchetta, was trained by European craftsmen as a furniture maker. In the late 1950s, dad emigrated from northern Italy to the Niagara Region to join in a small homebuilding company of a relative. Over the years, after going on his own, he gained a reputation as a builder of quality homes, building one home at a time. My brother and I joined the firm in the late 1980s following dad’s retirement. We began investing in unique and special enclaves to build our own sites. Working with a great team of consultants and staff, we’ve had some very successful projects. We have also teamed up with reputable developers for larger communities.

Our key focus has always been the empty nester. We began building bungalows principally since the early 2000s, focusing on the empty nesters here, and then the trickle from the GTA began and has become a larger segment of the market.

HOMES: And how you do foresee this market performing over the next few years?

Ed Lucchetta: The influx of homebuyers from the GTA has meant a big change to the region. The area has a lot to offer – wineries, casinos, excellent shopping close to the border – it’s all here, minus the traffic and congestion. For empty nesters, Niagara offers great value. Our Hunters Pointe site, for example, has 1,400-sq.-ft. townhomes starting in the low $500,000s, and singles in the low $600,000s. This is excellent value. We see strong sales continuing, as long as the price gap between the GTA and Niagara continues.

HOMES: What about the Niagara Region and Lucchetta Homes would you want prospective new-home buyers to know?

Ed Lucchetta: Niagara is the perfect place to call home. We have easy access to great shopping, fun events, it’s close to Toronto and has easy access to Buffalo. We have more than 130 wineries and more than 30 golf courses in the area. There’s less traffic, so as you come here, you feel the stress just slip away.

Lucchetta Homes is the premier award-winning boutique builder of the Niagara Region. We offer a quality and experience like no other. Our team of sales specialists, architectural designers, interior design specialists and purchasers all work together to help buyers customize their home just the way they want it.

We offer great locations with different lifestyles. Hunter’s Pointe, our active adult lifestyle community, offers a full community centre complete with an indoor swimming pool and library, banquet facilities and a fitness centre. All this with singles and towns, all bungalow style. It has won a number of provincial and local awards and has been named Canada’s Community of the Year by Canadian Home Builders’ Association.

Our flagship site, national and provincial award-winning Davis Heights in Fonthill, features opulent finishes with soaring 10-ft. ceilings, metal and copper roofs and stone stucco fronts, linear fireplaces, engineered hardwood floors and spa-like ensuites with a large tiled shower. The quality and standards are exceptional.

HOMES: New home supply and affordability, due to land availability and approval processes, have been a hot topic over the last few years in the GTA. How are things on that front in the Niagara Region?

Rob Lucchetta: The Niagara region is open for business. The influx of GTA homebuyers who were driven out of the GTA by rising or unreachable home prices have flocked here and found better value and quality of life. With expanding GO train service and a new hospital planned for southern Niagara Falls, this area will have even more to offer.

As a unique and environmentally sensitive area, with large Greenbelt areas and fruit lands, Niagara’s regional government and local municipalities have a lot to contend with. We also have a two-tiered system in Niagara, so developers have to deal with both the regional government and the local municipality. However, there truly is a cultural change occurring here. The region wants to see growth and intensification, and some municipalities have opened their doors to help streamline the process. Land is available, and it’s less expensive than the GTA.

HOMES: You’ve had some success in home science, in terms of building Net Zero homes. How readily available, on a production basis, is such new home technology… without adding too much to the purchase price of these homes?

Rob Lucchetta: Lucchetta Homes is one of the leaders of advanced technology for the Canadian homebuilding industry. We are a certified builder of Net Zero, R2000 and Energy Star homes.

We built the first Net Zero-ready home for the Canadian Home Builders’ Association pilot program in 2017. To get there, we teamed with Enbridge Utilities and its “savings by design” program to help create and implement a higher standard for all of our homes – while adding only a few thousand dollars to the cost and achieving 20-per-cent increase in energy efficiency.

We build Net Zero housing on a made-to-order basis. In many cases, customers will opt out of the full certification but get the better triple-pane windows or air source heat pumps to boost their home’s efficiency. As our energy costs continue to rise and better methods and products come to the market, Net Zero-ready homes will become the norm.

AND ON A PERSONAL NOTE…

Our greatest inspiration in this business is: Our father came to Canada in the late 1950s with a borrowed suitcase, and worked hard for many years to create the foundation of our company. He was an avid sportsman, but his family was always his first priority and brought him the most joy.

When we’re not at the office or on a job site, we: Spending time with family and friends. We enjoy golfing and cycling and a little hockey and curling during the winter months.

The Ride to Conquer Cancer is an important cause to you because: We love how it unites so many touched by this terrible disease. We do it for our father, since cancer cut his life short a few years ago.

Life your best life in Niagara

The principals of Lucchetta Homes know a good thing when they see it. As a result, purchasers benefit from their keen eye and their appreciation for only the finest locations in Niagara.

Bottom line – buying a home in Niagara is a fraction of the cost of those in the GTA, and the quality of life is far superior, according to Kim Kopyl, director of sales and marketing for Lucchetta Homes.

Last year alone, Lucchetta Homes won, or were nominated for, more than 20 awards by all levels of builders’ associations – local, provincial and national. It’s this recognition, that inspires them to keep upping the bar, and it’s what new homebuyers desire when seeking out the best in quality.

OUTSTANDING COMMUNITIES

Due to be released this July, Lucchetta is touting Davis Heights as Niagara’s finest new address. This luxury development will feature a limited release of bungalows and bungaloft towns, overlooking a ravine and the Niagara escarpment. In respect for a rare chestnut tree, Lucchetta will be building around those trees, in order to preserve them. This type of care is also evident in the attention to detail that they invest in each, and every, home.

At Davis Heights, the LUXE Collection will be custom curated by the renowned interior design firm Raphael Gomes Interiors. Two gorgeous model homes (opening in July), will feature a glass-encased wine cellar in the staircase filled with local wines. Homes will be priced from the $800,000s for floorplans that range from 1,600 to 3,000 square feet. The VIP Grand Opening for Davis Heights will be July 28 and 29, 2018 from noon to 5 p.m.

Riverside at Hunters Pointe has just launched in June 2018. There are two new stunning Model Homes to view. The Net Zero-ready Model Home features chic accents, contemporary architecture and sumptuous great rooms with 12-foot ceilings where Lucchetta’s signature luxurious quality is eminent. For a limited time, there is $25,000 off for any new purchase.

Riverside, features luxury bungalow towns and single detached luxury, custom homes. Homes are priced from $499,900. This limited release includes private waterfront, water-view canal lots.

To accommodate current needs and trends, Lucchetta Homes offers an array of newly designed exterior elevations. “We wanted to give our homeowners more choice. We listened to their needs and provided three different exterior elevations for every floorplan. There are contemporary, transitional and traditional plans to choose from,” says Kopyl.

When they’re not busy building homes, Lucchetta is involved in strengthening the neighbourhood.

“As we develop the area, giving back to the community is very important to us,” says Rob Lucchetta. “We are actively involved with many charities in the Niagara region.”

NIAGARA AT ITS BEST

While all homes are built to superior standards, it’s the Niagara area that fuels their passion. Kopyl, an industry expert, can attest to that. She is quick to mention all of the advantages of living in the area, which includes lower living costs, award-winning restaurants, worldclass wineries, beaches, designer outlet shopping, casinos and the Shaw Festival, as well as its proximity to a plethora of other attractions and amenities.

The GO Transit train is well on its way to Niagara. There are also fifteen-minute flights from Toronto to Niagara. And for those who like to travel, the Buffalo and Niagara airports are a convenient and inexpensive way to do so.

With an abundance of green space, outdoor activities include hiking, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, boating, fishing, paddle boarding, cycling, horseback riding and golfing.

“Simply put, this is a lovely place to live a very balanced, and fulfilled, life,” says Kopyl.

FAMILY VALUES

Ugo Lucchetta started the company more than 60 years ago and it quickly became known for its quality construction, craftsmanship and unparalleled customer service. Sons, Robert and Ed Lucchetta, are now at the helm and they carry on the traditions started by their father. Their hard work has paid off with ongoing recognition, in addition to the loyalty and word of mouth praise expressed by their customers.

Builder Profile: Lucchetta Homes takes home top awards

by Catherine Daley

Number One in Canada

It’s been quite the year for Lucchetta Homes and it’s not even over yet. On May 2nd, they were named Builder of the Year by the Niagara Home Builders’ Association (NHBA) 2017 Awards of Excellence. And on May 12th they received the top award for the Best Community Development of the Year from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) for their development called the Residences of Hunters Pointe.

Director of sales and marketing, Kim Kopyl, expressed her enthusiasm prior to the CHBA win simply because Lucchetta Homes had been nominated. As a result of a new program, CHBA received a record number of entries for the 39th National Awards for Housing Excellence, and had to pare down thousands of entries to 700. This, alone, was an unexpected victory for Lucchetta. Over a two-week period, 80 judges evaluated all of the entries. “To have been selected as a national finalist was already an immense accomplishment,” said Kopyl.

NHBA Awards: Kim Kopyl (director of sales & marketing); Robert Lucchetta (co-principal); Dora Lucchetta; Brenda Lucchetta, Ed Lucchetta (co-principal).

Often referred to as the ‘Oscars’ of housing, 39 awards recognized the best in the industry. With stiff competition from builders across Canada, representatives from Lucchetta Homes made their way to St. John’s, Newfoundland to attend the coveted awards. “We are beyond humbled and ecstatic over our recent accomplishment at the CHBA awards,” said Kopyl. “It’s a tribute to all of our purchasers who entrusted us as their preferred builder.”

The Residences of Hunters Pointe not only captured the imagination of the homeowners who have chosen to live there, but also the judges as well. Resortstyle living is part of the community’s appeal. An impressive 14,000-squarefoot, amenity-filled community centre offers a state-of-the-art gym with a personal trainer, a registered massage therapist, fitness classes, a hot tub, a library and more.

Located in the heart of the Niagara Region, The Residences at Hunters Pointe benefit from a truly unique setting, overlooking the Welland Canal. Depending upon the home’s location, residents can relax in their yard and watch ships slowly cruise by, and all can enjoy strolling along the canal hiking trails.

The community is rich with activities and amenities – whether it’s swimming in the saltwater pool, playing tennis, unwinding in the fitness centre, or simply gardening in the backyard, residents have the choice to be as busy as they want to be.

The freehold environment is ideal for snowbirds and staycationers, as homeowners don’t have to worry about security features, cutting the lawn or shovelling the snow.

Ugo Lucchetta started the company more than 50 years ago. Lucchetta Homes quickly became known for their quality construction, craftsmanship and unparalleled customer service. Sons, Robert and Ed Lucchetta, are now at the helm and carry on the traditions started by their father, while upping the ante to be one of the best. Their hard work has paid off. “We are very honoured and proud to be a CHBA National Awards winner, and we sincerely congratulate all nominees and winners from the event.” said Ed Lucchetta. “Our attention to detail, along with our goal to exceed our clients’ expectations, has culminated in a luxury home and a resort-style community, exuding both class and functionality.”

The CHBA distinction is the latest in an impressive collection of awards garnered by Lucchetta Homes. In addition to receiving high, local praise from the NHBA as Builder of the Year, they were also awarded for Most Outstanding Production Home Over 1,800 square feet, Excellence in Green, and Best Website. Lucchetta Homes has also been recognized as the R-2000 Builder of the Year, the Energy Star Builder of the Year, and received national recognition for building Canada’s first Net Zero Ready Qualified Home under the CHBA guidelines.

Lucchetta Homes continually raises the bar. This commitment to excellence is reflected in the high ratings that they receive from Tarion Warranty Corporation, surpassing customer satisfaction levels with astounding referral rates. “Not only do we share this award [Best Community Development of the Year] with the proud owners who call Hunters Point home.” said Rob Lucchetta. “But we are also honoured to share this extraordinary acknowledgment with our tremendously talented team, trades, suppliers and purchasers.”
