Our Woman-Centric Mattes!® builder program has helped builders realize a significant increase in home sales. It all began in mid-air on a flight back in January 2003 when the president of Design Basics was reading an article in Forbes magazine about the impact of female consumers. Women directly purchase or have controlling influence in the purchase of 91% of new homes (Smith-Dahmer Associates, NAHB IBS). Reading the article was an “Ah-ha!” moment.
After research and development, our Woman-Centric Matters!® program was launched in 2005. A unique bundle of products and services were developed to support the brand as well as a training program on how to effectively market to female customers. The program continues to grow with Woman-Centric builders across the country from California to Rhode Island and even Canada!
