Ritz-Craft Homes Earns More STARS Awards

Ritz-Craft was recognized at the 21st Century Building Expo and Conference with awards for Best Interior Merchandising/Design and Best Brochure/Marketing Piece for a Builder. This marks the third STARS award for Ritz-Craft – last year the company was recognized with the award for Best Internet Marketing, Advertising or Branding Project for their on-going social media campaigns.

Ritz-Craft's model home, The Shelton Creek, received the award for Best Interior Merchandising/Design in a home under $250,000. Judges noted the home’s “beautiful use of muted color” as a reason for the accolade. The Ritz-Craft Coastal Lifestyle Collection was recognized with an award for best brochure/marketing piece for a builder. For this award, judges noted the easy-to-read layout and presentation as the main reason for their decision.

Mike Zangardi, Ritz-Craft’s Director of Business Development and developer of the new Coastal Collection counts the brochure’s variety of plans as a reason for its popularity: "The designs in this collection encompass a wide variety of sizes and styles. Plans include cute, modest bungalows as well as large, family homes – all with special attention to maximizing view opportunities while embracing a casual, beach lifestyle. The collection includes a number of ‘upside-down’ two story plans with a second floor master suite and open living/entertaining space. The plans adapt well to elevated foundations to accommodate parking and entry from below and also keep to a minimal footprint to make the most of smaller beach area building lots."

The STARS Awards are a centerpiece of the 21st Century Building Expo and Conference – the premier building expo and conference in the Southeast. Each year, the gala salutes the outstanding professional performance of HBA members throughout the state of North Carolina with the presentation of the prestigious STARS Awards.
