Results from a recent survey by the Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) show that Lennar - Minneapolis/St. Paul was the region’s top ranked builder once again in 2016. Lennar has held the top spot since 2006. Rankings are based on annual gross revenue as reported by respondents for for-sale housing. Lennar reported gross revenue at $262 million for 519 single family and 63 multi-family homes (582 total) closed in the 2016 calendar year.
“At Lennar, we are proud that Twin Cities buyers have once again made Lennar the number one builder for 11 years in a row. By understanding what features today’s buyers want in their new homes, we are able to build their dream homes, with the quality details, current design trends, innovative home automation and energy efficiency that they desire, in the neighborhood with the amenities their family wants,” said Bill Burgess, Lennar Division President. “This intense focus on our homeowners’ needs is what has led Lennar to become not only the number one homebuilder for 11 years, but the best rated and positively reviewed Twin Cities builder on the Minnesota Better Business Bureau website.”
