LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. — Builder Magazine has named Neal Communities, southwest Florida’s premier homebuilder, No. 45 on its list of the 100 best homebuilders in the United States.
The ranking celebrates excellence in homebuilding, and last year, Neal Communities was ranked No. 47. In 2014, the company was ranked No. 50, meaning this is the third consecutive year Neal Communities has earned a higher ranking.
Every year since 1984, Builder Magazine has ranked the nation’s top homebuilders, evaluating both privately and publicly held companies through direct surveys and basing its results on the number of home closings.
Neal Communities is one of the most dominant homebuilders in the region, and the ranking reflects the company’s tremendous growth. The company was responsible for 989 total home closings in 2015.
“To consistently move up the list on this prestigious national ranking is an enormous testament to our hardworking team of dedicated professionals,” said Michael Storey, president of the Lakewood Ranch-based home building firm. “Our team is second to none in this business, and as we continue to grow over the next five years, we will remain true to our core values of superior customer service, improving the lives of the people we work with and building quality homes,” he said.
Builder Magazine also ranked only the top private builders in the country, and Neal Communities is No. 27 on that list this year, only 26 home closings away from being one of the top 25 private builders in the country.
To date in 2016, the builder has sold 391 homes in southwest Florida spanning from Hillsborough to Collier Counties.
