WINNERS OF THE 2015 PARADE OF HOMES ANNOUNCED!

People's Choice Award and Industry Awards of Excellence

The Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs (HBA) announced the winners of the People’s Choice Awards and the Industry Awards of Excellence for the 2015 Parade of Homes. This year’s featured homes ranged in price from less than $150,000 to almost $1,700,000. Twenty-four builders presented 32 homes dispersed among 21 communities for the 61st Annual Parade of Homes.

Industry professionals from around the state judged the homes on a number of features including landscape design, floor plan, architectural exterior, and interior decorating. The coveted People’s Choice Awards is voted on each year by Parade of Homes attendees. The People’s Choice and Industry Awards of Excellence are both broken out into multiple categories divided by price point. Industry Awards of Excellence are then further divided among the following eight categories: Best Kitchen, Best Master Suite, Best Interior Design, Best Exterior, Best Landscape Design, Best Architectural Exterior, Best Craftsmanship and Best Overall Home.

On Friday, August 28, winners of both the People’s Choice and Industry Awards of Excellence were honored by the HBA at the Parade of Homes Awards Banquet held at the Pinery at Black Forest with more than 200 in attendance. The sponsors of this year’s Award banquet was Arlun, Inc., Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. Luisa Graff Jewelers helped celebrate our 61st Parade of Homes by giving away a diamond ring to one lucky attendee of the banquet. Congratulations to winner Mike Ruebenson of La Plata Communities. This was also a fundraiser for our charitable foundation, HBA Cares.
