Drees Homes has been named as the 2008 recipient of Builder magazine’s annual America’s Best Builder Award.
Companies considered for the award are evaluated by a panel of industry leaders, who judge the companies based on finance/operations, customer service/quality, community/ industry service, design/ construction, and marketing.
“Most builders excel in just one discipline, be it customer service, great design, construction expertise or financial acumen,” said Denise Dersin, editor-in-chief of Builder. “But builders who receive this award manage to do it all. That is an amazing achievement.”
“Business intelligence has allowed us to fine-tune our operations,” said David Drees, president and CEO of the 80-year-old family-owned company. “We operate at top efficiency and have systems that are fully integrated in every aspect of our business. Keeping ahead of the curve in technology has allowed us to do something very personal – create our customers’ unique idea of home in their dream community – very effectively and efficiently.”
