Parade of Homes - At Neal Communities

Parade of Homes

March 26, 2012

At Neal Communities we celebrate OUR ‘Parade’ of Homes every day of the year!

The 2012 Parade of Homes presented by the Home Builders Association of Manatee and Sarasota Counties has come to an end! For two weeks, we have had the privilege of welcoming and talking with literally hundreds of people who came out to tour our communities and models during the Parade of Homes. What a pleasure it was to introduce so many new people to Neal Communities!

The annual Parade of Homes is an excellent opportunity for builders to showcase new floor plans and communities to the public, and also to receive recognition from industry peers. The excitement, the anticipation, the event….it’s like Christmas in the home building industry!

This year Neal Communities was very honored and proud to have been recognized at the 2012 Parade of Homes by receiving 27 total awards and 4 Best Overall Homes! We were all thrilled beyond belief, everyone’s hard work and dedication paid off! However, I must tell you a secret… this isn’t really our motive for participating in the Parade of Homes.

The most important aspect of the Parade of Homes to Neal Communities isn’t the recognition or the awards… It is the chance to introduce YOU to our communities and homes! And, we don’t take that responsibility lightly.

Let me explain…..preparation for a Parade of Homes starts months before the actual Parade begins. Many people are involved in the process of getting our model homes in “Parade” shape. From interior designers, landscapers, pressure washers, painters, plumbers, our dynamic sales team and employees, getting a model in “Parade” shape is a team effort! (We call these extraordinary people our Parade elves!) Everything must be PERFECT, no exceptions.

But why just do this once a year? Over forty years ago Neal Communities made the decision to make everyday a Parade of Homes day! We celebrate the Parade of Homes (the Builder’s version of Christmas) 365 days a year!! (Our elves love it!!)

You see, a Parade of Homes isn’t something that you do just two weeks a year…it is something you do every day. So, even though the official 2012 Parade of Homes has ended, the Neal Communities 2012 Parade is just beginning!
