"At bazinga! we want to disrupt the way people think about traditional community living by putting the power of community back into the hands of homeowners. Tridel understands that a home is more than just its walls, it's also the experience and care a resident receives after completion. Our partnership with Tridel is another milestone for bazinga! and is a strong indicator of the uptake we have been seeing across North America in recent months."
Jim Ritchie, Tridel's Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, shares, "As technology and the needs of homebuyers evolved, we have looked for the right partnership that will offer long lasting value to our residents and property managers. We believe this is bazinga! and are thrilled to offer our homebuyers more than just a home, but a community."
