Customers feel special when they have maximum say in a transaction; be it the ease of negotiation, payment plans or the design of the home unit itself, it always pays to make these aspects, customer centric. Godrej Properties with the Godrej Gold County project in Bangalore, has gone a step further and has made the process of purchasing a villa, all the more appealing by involving the customer even before the structure is built.
