Nothing, I’ve been complaining about my floor issue since couple of months.. people came and went but nothing happened.. the rain gutters are overflowing they said they fixed it but they did not.. overpriced slider door frames are all scratched and irrecoverably damaged but they wouldnt replace... they don’t look like I’m living in a new house

Woodside did a great job fixing some electrical issues that occured the day we moved in (light switches not working) and the issue was resolved within 48 hours. However, we were told that we would get phone calls after 1 month, 2 months, etc. to check in and we have not been contacted. We have a list of a few things that need attention and we aren't sure how to deliver that feedback.

[removed] was amazing from the start in sales. She truly displayed genuine excitement about the process. I was on the fence in the beginning whether or not to buy, but she made things extremely easy. Additionally, she sent pictures and updates without even being prompted. [removed] was extremely proactive! [removed] was always available should I have any questions along the way. I really had no issues from start to move in. The only thing I would have preferred, and this may just be my own issue, was having a little more time to understand the process after move in through the customer care. It was explained to me but I felt a little overwhelmed trying to keep all of my move in to-do's along with the walk through follow ups etc. Just a little time ahead of the closing to cover it , perhaps even in that initial walkthrough would have been helpful.

We had quite a list that we asked [removed] to come and go over. He wrote down everything and also fixed a couple things himself while he was at our home. He then managed to have several people scheduled to come on one day to fix various things. That was great. We do have some items we discussed that have not been fixed but I believe that is due to [removed] having to keep track of items in his own notebook. I feel like if he had a system to add each homes items to it would help him keep track of those items. He is very friendly, understands our concerns and wants to the right thing for his customers.
