Dagan Park Estates - Chicago Tribune 2007 Festival of Homes featured Custom Townhomes in Palatine - utilizes Arlington Heights based Kitchen Village staff and products for superior customer service and designs. Kitchen Village Contractor Sales manager, David Summer, has been working closely with Dagan Builders on their 23 unit Custom Townhome project in Palatine.

David Summer says, "The Dagan Park Estates project is offering Koch cabinetry with solid wood, raised panel doors in full-overlay styling as their standard, not an upgrade! An on-site selection center showcases the Koch product in a complete kitchen display along with alternate species and door selections shown in the island and a vanity display. Two of the six townhomes currently under construction will also be used as models to show additional Koch cabinetry door-style, stain finish, and design layout options. These are truly "Custom" Townhomes - custom is not just a label at Dagan Park Estates."

"I can vouch that David's work on behalf of Kitchen Village in servicing our clients is unmatched. His innovative designs and professional guidance set my clients at ease from the very first appointment. David and Kitchen Village actually make my job easier!" says Lori Balog, townhome sales manager for Dagan Park Estates.

Jerry Balog, President of Dagan Builders, adds, "We're extremely pleased with the effort David has put forth in making sure our project flows as smoothly as possible. From his design work with the clients, to coordination with our site managers for delivery, to responding to questions from the carpentry crew he has been on top of it all. Heck, I think I've even seen him stop by on a Saturday!"
