Neal Communities is the 2015 Builder of the Year

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.

“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.”

We salute Neal Communities’ ability to weather the housing downturn by recognizing the trend early, finding a sold strategy, and putting a plan into action with strict controls to ensure success. The competition has noticed. Neal Communities was able to not only survive, but thrive through the downturn, and now sits on thousands and thousands of acres of prime land in Florida, without the typical bank loans to go with it. They are positioned for growth as the market rebounds toward a new normal. And they did it all while remaining loyal to their team – the Neal “family”.

“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 Patrick Neal, owner and chairman of 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.”

Congratulations to Neal Communities!
