Results from our annual survey show that Lennar was the region’s top ranked builder once again in 2015. 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 $233 million for 442 single family and 60 multi-family homes (502 total) closed in the 2015 calendar year.
“It’s a great honor that Twin Cities families have chosen Lennar as the #1 builder for 10 straight years. Listening to our buyers’ ideas and dreams of what they want in their new home allows us to build them a great energy efficient home in an outstanding neighborhood and school district, with the newest colors and design trends included,” said Bill Burgess, Lennar Division President.
“This intense focus on building our buyers their dream homes has not only resulted in our customers making Lennar the #1 Twin Cities builder for 10 straight years, but made Lennar one of the highest rated and most positively reviewed Twin Cities builders on the Minnesota BBB website,” said Burgess.
