Standout home builder receives accolades from San Diego Union-Tribune, Building Industry Association and Greater Sales and Marketing Council

SAN DIEGO, CA, October 03, 2019 /Neptune100/ — Voted Best New Homebuilder by San Diego Union-Tribune readers in 2015, 2017, 2018 and now 2019, Pardee Homes continues its commitment to quality, innovation and enriching the lives of San Diegans by providing some of the region’s most outstanding and award-winning master planned communities.

Recently, Pardee’s Vista Del Mar neighborhood received the Building Industry Association (BIA) of San Diego County’s Icon Award for Best Model Complex Landscape Design for Single Family and the coveted Community of the Year – Detached Home award. Pardee’s Vista Santa Fe’s Plan 3 was honored with the award for Best Architecture Design of a Detached Home Priced $1 Million & Over.

Additionally, Pardee’s team was honored to be named a finalist in six categories during the Greater Sales and Marketing Council’s SoCal Awards. Pardee’s Kevin Pfefferkorn took home the prestigious SoCal Award for Community Superintendent of the Year for his work representing several of Pardee’s newest residential communities.

Both award ceremonies recognized Pardee Homes for creating quality new single- and multi-family homes in San Diego.

“These tremendous accolades were only made possible through the hard work, dedication and innovation of the Pardee Homes team,” said Pardee Homes San Diego Division President Jimmy Ayala. “We’re truly humbled to receive these honors, and we look forward to continuing to prove why we are San Diego’s best.”

The San Diego Union-Tribune holds the annual San Diego’s Best Union-Tribune Readers Poll to identify companies, restaurants, destinations, shops and industry leaders readers feel are worthy of being named among “San Diego’s Best.” San Diegans continue to place their trust in Pardee Homes year after year as the developer continues to do its part to help relieve San Diego’s housing crisis by providing a spectrum of new homes with diverse price ranges to accommodate buyers across the region.

Furthermore, each year, the BIA holds the Icon Awards to celebrate the local building industry’s most distinguished contributors as well as projects that significantly contributed to the betterment of the local industry. The 2019 BIA Icon Awards featured 33 diverse categories where nominees were judged and selected based on innovation, function and creativity. Whereas, the Greater Sales and Marketing Council states their SoCal Awards encompass “all facets of professional achievement, sales, marketing, merchandising and design.”

Pardee Homes took home a total of three Icon Awards. Both award-winning neighborhoods, Vista Del Mar and Vista Santa Fe, are part of the Pacific Highlands Ranch community in San Diego’s Carmel Valley. This thriving community offers shopping, recreation and service experiences designed for families and individuals alike. As an added bonus, Pacific Highlands Ranch is near some of the region’s highest performing schools, local farmers markets, concert venues and San Diego’s largest employment centers.

Vista Del Mar and Vista Santa Fe will now be considered for the industry’s regional awards and may have the opportunity to be considered for the BIA’s national awards later in the year.

The neighborhoods of Carmel, Sendero, Vista Del Mar, Vista Santa Fe and Moderna were named finalists in various categories including Best Architectural Design, Best Interior Design and Best Model Complex Landscape Design during the BIA’s 10th annual Icon Award ceremony on September 21st.

These awards represent the notable achievements and dedicated work Pardee’s staff commits to designing, building and promoting high quality new homes for San Diego’s homebuyers.
