HOUSTON, Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Taylor Morrison's two Houston divisions walked away from this year's Greater Houston Builders Association Houston's Best PRISM awards with more than 20 awards while finishing as a finalist in 30 other categories.
The wins ranged the gamut from home design to the company's first 55+ product in the country's fourth largest city.
"Houston is without a doubt one of our busiest markets and also one of our most diverse from a product perspective," said Graham Hughes, vice president of corporate sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison. "To be able to look back on the year and see how much we accomplished is a great honor in itself. Adding these awards to the mix is the icing on the cake."
Taylor Morrison garnered 26 finalist nominations and 12 awards. The company was celebrated for its unique designs and its overall approach to debuting the 55+ Bonterra at Woodforest in Montgomery. Bonterra won for best interior merchandising ($200,000-$250,000 category), marketing campaign and grand opening event (among others) while Taylor Morrison took home awards for product design, interior merchandising, marketing professional, mortgage specialist, design center associate and rookie on-site sales.
"The introduction of Bonterra will go down as one of our proudest professional achievements," said Jonathan White, president of Taylor Morrison's Houston division. "It was a huge undertaking for our company, and a brand new product line and buyer. The way our team pulled together and worked to make it a success speaks volumes."
Darling Homes also had a big night, winning with its debut of two product lines at Cross Creek Ranch in Fulshear. In all, Darling took home nine PRISM awards and received 12 finalist nominations. Among the awards for Darling were PRISM statues for product design, interior merchandising, sales manager of the year, construction manager of the year, internet campaign of the year and on-site salesperson.
"I can't say enough about how proud I am of our team at Darling Homes," said Amy Rino, president of Darlings Houston division. "2014 was our busiest and most ambitious year to date and our team made it look effortless. Our focus is on creating a world-class experience for our customers and our business partners. These awards demonstrate that we're doing just that. I couldn't be prouder."
