Meritage Homes Receives 10 Prestigious Honors at the Annual Avid Awards for Highest Homebuyer Ratings

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Meritage Homes (NYSE: MTH) is pleased to announce that 10 of its divisions have been honored with the 2019 Avid Awards for excellence in homebuyer satisfaction.

“Every day we strive to deliver a Life.Built.Better.® for our homeowners and set the highest standard for home quality and customer service,” said Steve Hilton, CEO of Meritage Homes. “The record number of awards that Meritage Homes earned this year underscores our company’s steadfast commitment to customer satisfaction.”

For the past 16 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 2018 were surveyed to determine the winners of the 2019 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 Austin and Denver divisions were 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 Orlando, Active Adult, Charlotte, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Northern California, Tucson and Phoenix divisions took home the Avid Benchmark Award for scoring among the top 25 percent in customer ratings nationwide.

“Our goal is to give homeowners the certainty that Meritage will not only meet, but exceed, their home buying expectations through transparency, excellent quality, and integrity above all else,” said Camille Jenkins, vice president of national customer relations at Meritage Homes. “The AVID awards are a testament to the hard work and commitment of the entire Meritage Homes team.”
