BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 02/02/09 -- A panel of industry leaders selected EYA, a Bethesda, MD-based home builder founded in 1992, as an America's Best Builder honoree for the second time in just 8 years.
The award, given by BUILDER Magazine, recognizes best-in-class performance in five important areas of running a home building business: finance & operations; customer service & quality; community & industry service; design & construction; and marketing. Judges also look for a holistic approach to tightly managing every step of the home buying experience, which ultimately drives customer satisfaction.
"We are thrilled to be granted this honor again for 2009," said Andy Warren, Partner and COO. "EYA prides itself on building homes that stand the test of time by preserving the character of neighborhoods and promoting a walkable lifestyle close to retail services and public transportation. And we are thankful to our thousands of homeowners who have helped us achieve our recent 100% willingness-to-refer rate."
The panel of judges selects three builders every year for the honor. EYA was selected for its commitment to distinctive home design, building neighborhoods in areas featuring life within walking distance to community retail services, and industry-leading results on homebuyer satisfaction and referral sales.
"Most builders excel in just one discipline, be it customer service, great design, construction expertise, or financial acumen," said Denise Dersin, editor in chief of Builder magazine, the leading magazine of the home building industry. "But our America's Best Builder winners manage to do it all. That is an amazing achievement."
For 16 years, EYA has led development trends by introducing distinctive home designs to DC neighborhoods. Architectural styles by EYA are unmistakable and include arts-inspired rowhomes in Hyattsville, MD, Spanish Mission and English Tudor townhomes in Silver Spring, MD, New York brownstones in Potomac, MD, Chicago-inspired townhomes in Fairfax, VA, and classic DC rowhomes near Navy Yard Metro. Homes are designed to complement the existing surroundings and add to the aesthetic quality of the Metropolitan area.
EYA is an urban infill developer, specializing in new townhomes for sale in Washington, DC, mixed-use developments, and LEED for Homes certified townhomes. In the last 16 years, the company has built nearly 30 neighborhoods in the Washington Metropolitan area. The company was honored as America's Best Builder in 2000 and 2009 and has received more than 175 other national, regional, and local awards.
