Meritage Homes recognized for excellence in homebuyer satisfaction

“Providing an exceptional building experience is something we take very seriously at Meritage Homes,” said Steve Hilton, CEO of Meritage Homes. “Our goal is to deliver a Life. Built. Better.® to our valued customers through transparency, excellent quality, and integrity above all else.”

For the past 15 years, the Avid Awards have been regarded as a trusted benchmark of customer service performance in the homebuilding industry. Homeowners who purchased new homes in 2017 were surveyed to determine the winners of the 2018 Avid Awards. Every survey analyzes the total home buying experience, including the customer’s willingness to refer and the actual number of recommendations a buyer has made.

Meritage’s San Antonio, Orlando and Phoenix divisions were each recognized with the Avid Gold Award™ for having the highest customer ratings per region for a new home at the time of move-in. Additionally, the company’s Austin, Houston, Raleigh, Tucson, Northern California and Southern California divisions took home the Avid Benchmark Award™ for scoring among the top in customer ratings nationwide.

“Our dedicated employees and trade partners work exceptionally hard to deliver the highest standard of home quality and customer service to our buyers,” said Camille Jenkins, vice president of national customer relations at Meritage Homes. “The Avid Awards are a great way to measure and acknowledge that effort.”
