Excellence in product design and features across variety of price points impresses judges
CHARLOTTE, June 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Mattamy Homes was the big winner in the 2012 Charlotte Parade of Homes Awards, taking home five awards, the most of any builder in this year's competition.
The Parade of Homes is put on by the Home Builders Association of Charlotte each spring and features new homes from the area's top builders for sale across a range of price points and locations. This year, 62 homes were entered and judged in five price categories.
Based on the price of its new homes available for sale in the Charlotte area, Mattamy entered homes in four categories, winning an award in each category, with three Gold and two Silver awards overall. Of special note, Mattamy's homes dominated Category 5 ($300,000-$335,000), taking home both the Gold and Silver. (See the table below for a breakdown of categories and the Mattamy winning models.)
Each home in the Parade competition is scored by a team of experienced industry judges according to a variety of external (e.g., design, landscaping, curb appeal) and interior (floor plan, rooms, detailing, lighting) categories.
Mattamy's homes stand out for a number of reasons, including thoughtful interior and exterior designs and excellent standard features, all in a number of elevations across the range of price points, says Mattamy Carolinas President Bill Kiselick. "Mattamy is not a custom builder, but we have a custom feel," he says. "Our goal is to provide our homeowners with an abundance of choice and value in the price range they're looking for. People can be pleasantly surprised when they see what they're getting in a Mattamy home. We add to that an unwavering focus on providing them the best experience possible on the service side."
Mattamy's Carolinas division was recognized earlier this year with an Avid Benchmark Award, signifying that it ranks in the top 25% for customer experience nationally, and with 96% of home buyers saying they would recommend Mattamy Homes to family and friends. (Avid is the leading industry-sponsored award program honoring the best builders across North America for delighting homeowners.)
Mattamy Homes Carolinas has 11 communities of new homes for sale in eight local areas:
