Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 3, 2008
Florida custom home builders Arthur Rutenberg Homes stole the show at the 2008 Tampa Bay Parade of Homes, scoring the most awards of any single-family home builder there. Most notably, franchises of Arthur Rutenberg Homes swept the category for single-family homes priced $650,000 to $699,000, taking the two top awards for luxury homes in this price rang.
"We are honored that our homes have received such high recognition," said Tessa Madasz, vice president of sales at Arthur Rutenberg Homes. "Receiving just one award would be a tremendous honor, and our franchises brought us four separate awards."
The largest franchiser of independent custom home builders in the nation, Arthur Rutenberg Homes was represented in the Tampa Bay Parade of Homes by three award-winning franchises: Arthur Rutenberg Homes/Lyons Heritage Tampa, Arthur Rutenberg Homes/Lyons Heritage Pasco, and Arthur Rutenberg Homes/Custom Craft Homes. Lyons Heritage Tampa was a two-time winner with both a grand and a merit award, while Lyons Heritage Pasco and Custom Craft Homes earned a grand award and a merit award, respectively.
Two of the awards; a grand award for Lyons Heritage Tampa's Tradewinds VI at Connerton in Land O' Lakes, and a merit award for Custom Craft's St. Augustine IV at FishHawk Ranch in Lithia -- were both in the category for single-family homes priced $650,000 to $699,000. Arthur Rutenberg Homes was the only single-family home builder to sweep a category.
The other two awards were a grand award for Lyons Heritage Pasco's Camelia at Southern Hills Plantation in Hernando County, a home in the $900,000 to $999,000 price category; and a merit award for Lyons Heritage Tampa's Bonaire II at Grand Hampton in Hillsborough County, a home in the $550,000 to $599,000 price category.
"Lyons Heritage Pasco, Lyons Heritage Tampa, and Custom Craft Homes are all top-notch luxury home builders in Florida," Madasz said. "Arthur Rutenberg Homes is proud to have these builders represent our company."
The 2008 Tampa Bay Parade of Homes visited the counties of Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando, featuring 132 model homes in 105 different communities. The event, which is held every spring, is sponsored by the Tampa Bay Builders Association.
