Arlington Heights, IL (December 2, 2015) — Professional Builder, North America’s leading business publication dedicated to the home building industry, has named Neal Communities its 2015 Builder of the Year. The Sarasota-Fla.-based firm is the 49th builder to be honored as Builder of the Year by Professional Builder.
The Builder of the Year award program was established in 1965, with the first award recipient announced the following year. Fifty years later, the program continues its objective of acknowledging home builders whose innovative ideas and business results represent the best in home building. Professional Builder’s editors select the winning firm, with input from a select group of industry executives.
The Neal Communities executive team was honored during an awards luncheon at Professional Builder’s Housing Giants Leadership Conference in Phoenix in October. Full coverage of Neal Communities’ business and operations is featured in the
December issue of Professional Builder with extended coverage on http://www.probuilder.com/2015-builder-year-neal-communities.
“With closings approaching 1,000 homes in 2015, Neal Communities did better coming out of the downturn than many companies did during the boom,” says Professional Builder Editorial Director Denise Dersin. “Neal’s focus on acquiring the best land and creating sustainable communities, along with its ability to hire—and keep—one of the best teams in the business has made it one of Florida’s fastest-growing home builders.”
“At Neal Communities, our entire team is deeply committed to improving the lives of the people we serve with superior customer service, products and value,” says Pat Neal, owner, Neal Communities. “I could not be more proud of our dedicated team of exceptional home building professionals who inspire me to work harder every single day. To be recognized for excellence with this prestigious award is a special honor that we are humbled and pleased to accept.”
