LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. — Since 1970, Neal Communities has been committed to creating communities with distinction in southwest Florida, just as GE Appliances has distinguished its brand from the start with products homeowners take pride in. And now, after more than 40 years of doing business together, this award-winning homebuilder and manufacturer have announced a three-year partnership extension, making GE Appliances the sole appliances supplier to Neal Communities through 2020.
Based in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., Neal Communities is the area’s largest locally owned and operated private builder. From Hillsborough to Manatee, and further south to Lee and Collier counties, Neal has built standout communities over four decades of diligent research and hard work. Including prestigious coastal villages and neighborhoods nestled within picturesque vistas, each location embraces the natural beauty of the region and brings homebuyers the best amenities the builder has to offer.
And for decades, these furnishings have included GE Appliances. In fact, GE Appliances brings Neal Communities a house of brands including GE®, GE Profile™, GE Café™, and Monogram® that allows the builder to tailor the perfect selection across all price points and home plans for its buyers.
“Neal Communities is a tremendous and demanding partner,” said Kreg Hickman, a Sarasota-based Area Sales Manager for GE Appliances. “They expect a lot from us as they strive to deliver a world-class homeownership experience. This pairs perfectly with our strategic focus on serving home builders in their local markets.”

“Our buyers look for refinement in their homes and GE Appliances helps us elevate the ownership experience,” said Pat Neal, CEO of Neal Communities. “They’ve become part of the Neal family and always give us a variety of options to choose from.
