The contest was held in St. Petersburg for the first time. The organizers’ purpose was to identify the construction and real estate companies doing their business honestly and in good faith.
As a result of the vote, GDSK was awarded first place in category ‘Investment and Construction Company Enjoying the Highest Trust of Consumers in the Real Estate Market of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region.’ The voting process for the nominees in the three categories (construction and investment company, bank, realtor) was conducted in three phases: Internet voting based on which 10 companies were selected in each category; experts’ assessment; and interactive voting during the Housing Project workshop-exhibition held in St. Petersburg as part of the Civil Housing Forum from October 1st to October 5th.
Thus, the award confirms that the trust in GDSK shown by the residents of this city is not accidental. Attention to its customers, reliability and competitiveness are GDSK’s distinctive features. Moreover, GDSK is one of the few companies in the St. Petersburg’s real estate market that complies with Federal Law No.214 protecting investors’ rights in housing construction projects.
The experts’ board that selected the nominees for the final phase included specialists from the city’s construction and housing committees, Northwest Construction and Industrial Complex association and Realtors’ Association, and Consumers Society of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region.
According to Ekaterina Nemchenko, Commercial Director of OOO GDSK, “the award of the Consumer’s Trust contest is extremely valuable for the company. It is impossible to buy or borrow trust, it can only be earned through working honestly and laboriously every day. It is a sign of high appreciation of our activities aimed primarily at performing our undertakings in time and at good quality.”
