The builder specializes in mixed-use urban infill and suburban projects. The company enters all the basic customer information into the sales system, then has the customer sit down with a salesperson to select the options.

Del Mar will also give customers a user name and password so they can view the options on the system via the Internet and be better prepared for selections meetings.
