MiraBay takes top honors at building conference
Apollo Beach, Florida, January 16, 2007 - The community of MiraBay® was recognized with two prestigious Excel Awards during the recent Southeast Building Conference in Orlando, Florida.
Sponsored by the Florida Home Builders Association's Sales & Marketing Council, the Excel Awards program recognizes excellence in sales and marketing, says Diana Hilton, marketing manager for MiraBay.
The first honor - a gold Excel Award - was presented to MiraBay for best direct-mail piece among master-planned communities with homes priced more than $500,000. The 9-minute DVD highlighted the community's amenities, homes and lifestyle.
The next Excel was a silver Million Dollar Sales Achiever award given to new-home specialist Lori Rowell, who generated about $15 million in sales at MiraBay between March 2005 and April 2006.
Even before its first models opened, MiraBay was honored by the Hillsborough County City-County Planning Commission for having the Tampa Bay-area's best master-planned community design, and recently earned that honor for the second time. It features a 3.5-mile canal system and direct deep-water access to Tampa Bay.
When completed in about six years, this 750-acre community is expected to provide more than 1,900 residences priced from the high-$300s to more than $5 million including homesite.
