2014 Homebuyers’ Choice Awards: Winners & Criteria

Eliant 2014 brand masthead only

Eliant is proud to announce the 45 home-builder winners of the “Eliant 2014 Home Buyers’ Choice Awards,” in partnership with RET Staffing (Real Estate Temps) of Newport Beach, CA, and imortgage, headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ.

The top national award – “The ELIANT” – has been presented to the two highest rated home builders based on customers’ ratings of the three “Key Measures” questions at Move-In and Year-End (i.e. Satisfied with Overall Quality?; Builder Met Commitments?; Customer’s Willingness to Refer a Friend):

The “ELIANT”: Highest rating for “Overall Purchase & Ownership Experience”
• Single division home builder: MBK Homes – Irvine, CA
• Multiple division home builder: The New Home Company – Aliso Viejo, CA

All other awards have been given for home buyers’ satisfaction with key elements of the purchase and ownership experience. The six categories include:

  1. The Purchase Experience (on Eliant’s ‘Move-In Survey’)
  2. The Design Selection Experience (on the Move-In Survey)
  3. The Construction Experience (on the Move-In Survey)
  4. First-Year Customer Service Experience (from Eliant’s ‘Mid-Year’ and ‘Year-End Surveys’)
  5. First-Year Quality (from the ‘Year-End Survey’)
  6. Highest Percent of Sales From Referrals (from the Move-In Survey: “Were you referred to this builder by a friend?”) 

 

In these categories, awards have been given to builders in each of three ‘size’ segments based on total 2013 closings:

  1. High Volume Home Builders or Divisions: >250 homes closed
  2. Large Home Builders or Divisions: 100-249 homes closed
  3. Medium Home Builders or Divisions: < 100 homes closed

 

Winners of the “Eliant 2014 Home Buyers’ Choice” awards are based only on scores from all surveys received from January 1-December 31, 2013, regardless of closing date.
