Highland HomesFor many builders, 2009 marked a year of hardships, decreased sales and plummeting assets. Construction was frozen and new starts were virtually non-existent. However, for Florida home builder, Highland Holdings (Highland Homes) this was not the case. The local company has managed to prosper over the past year and has moved 11 spots up on Builder Magazine’s Builder 100 list, jumping from 84 in 2008 to 73 in 2009.

An annual list, the Builder 100 ranks the top-100 builders in the country based on total closings. With 334 total closings, Highland Homes managed to move forward on a list where many builders dropped dramatically. We couldn’t be happier, 2009 was a tough year for everyone in the real estate industry and we are proud to still be standing and serving the needs of central Florida home buyers.

The Builder 100 list is comprised of both private and public builders. The list is compiled annually in May and is published by Builder Magazine. For more information about the Builder 100 please visit Builder Magazine’s website.
