The Stones Family....Building Relationships One Customer at a Time
Stones Superior Homes is a family-owned and operated business that has been in existence since 1975. Beginning as a staff of just two, Kim and Anne Stone rolled up their sleeves for some very hard work - and today Stones has three individually-run businesses (including Stones Superior Homes and Stones RV); employing a team of about 40 dedicated employees.
Kim and Anne continue to be involved in the day-to-day business and are assisted by their son, Jonathan, and two daughters, Chantal and Danielle.
Over the past 44 years, the Stones family has developed an outstanding reputation for delivering top-quality Prestige homes to families in Nova Scotia, in fact, over 1,000 families and counting! “We are proud to sell Prestige Homes” says Kim, “because they offer you the most innovative design concepts in modular homes and, at the same time, they are dedicated to the principal of giving you more for your money”.
We are committed to selling affordable homes and cottages; with style, elegance and superior quality. We truly believe that Our Clients are the most important people in our business and thus the reason for our continuous pursuit of excellence in home selection, value and customer service. It's because of this commitment that we tend to keep 'customers for life'.
Recent Stones Achievements
Stones Prestige Homes' Danielle Park was nominated for the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards in spring 2021. Nominations for this award are given to female business owners and entrepreneurs that show just what women in the world of business can do. With outstanding achievements and successful businesses behind them, nominees are driven and intelligent businesswomen. We are pleased to be a women-owned and operated business that is here to give our customers the best service and products.
Stones is the recent recipient of the accredited 2014 SHARP Award for the category of Best Air Tightness in New Home Construction (for houses less the 2500 sq/ft). Airtightness is critical for reducing heat loss, decreasing power consumption, and ultimately lowering energy costs. This is an award that Stones is pleased to accept, knowing each and every home they build is done to the same scrutinizing level of construction. A sample of 10 houses from Stone's proved best in category for energy evaluations when compared to a total of 518 new homes in Nova Scotia from various builders and manufacturers. More info about the awards can be found at http://stonesprestigehomes.com/blog/energy-efficient-insulation.
Stones Superior Homes is honored to receive the prestigious 2013 Pictou County Chamber of Commerce Large Business of the Year Award. Chantal, Danielle, and Jonathan accepted the award on behalf of the Stone family at the ceremony (held Nov 21, 2013). This achievement is due to the high standards and dedication of the Stone family, and their entire staff, in providing excellent customer service and showing significant growth. The Honorable Barrie MacMillan, Mayor of New Glasgow NS, commented in a letter to Stones (sent Dec 12, 2013), that "the impressive growth of Stones Superior Homes and Stones RV in the past number of years is to be commended. We applaud your company for continuing to contribute to the economic growth of our region... and for the dedication and expertise provided by the entire family."
