The highly competitive Excellence in Home Building Awards recognize the industry's most outstanding building, sales, marketing, and trade professionals who have distinguished themselves by working to deliver their best each day for the betterment of the industry.

"We are honored to be named as one of the best homebuilders by the Bay Area Building Industry Association," said Barry Grant, Northern California Division President at Meritage Homes. "We closed 26 percent more homes in the Bay Area last year than we did in 2014, despite the challenges of working through one of the most constrained labor markets in history. This prestigious award is an affirmation of the team's hard work, collaboration and commitment to excellence."

Meritage Homes also won "Purchasing Team of the Year" award and "Escrow Coordinator of the Year."

"What makes an evening of this nature so satisfying is the incredible mix of individual honors and group awards that Meritage received," continued Grant. "We are proud of the team for their dedication and well-deserved recognition."
