The National Housing Quality Gold Award is recognized as the most prestigious and difficult to attain award in the entire home building industry. Styled after the nationally recognized Malcolm Baldrige criteria for performance excellence, the National Housing Quality Gold Award is co-sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders and Professional Builder magazine.

Applicants are evaluated on numerous aspects of their home building operations, including construction quality, customer service and satisfaction, operational efficiency, and personnel and trade contractor relationships. Only companies that achieve high performance levels in all areas can reach the Gold level. Estes Builders is amongst only a select few to achieve this level.

Sponsored by Builder Magazine, the America’s Best Builder Award is one of the most prestigious home builder awards in the industry. Award winners must demonstrate high levels of performance in all areas of operation.
