It has been an exciting month for the Nelson Homes / Arthur Rutenberg Sales Teams. Starting with several new lot reservations throughout our combined neighborhoods, we took a short jaunt to Clearwater for the Vendors Showcase, a mini-trade show exclusively for Arthur Rutenberg franchises, sponsored by our trades partners.From the newest in plumbing, lighting, flooring, and cabinetry to sexy outdoor living features and design with exotic fire pits, water features and creative landscaping, we have unlimited suggestions to share with our customers!

This was the day preceding the annual PIP meeting and banquet at the Hilton on Carillion Drive where our “Marbella” model won “Model of the Year – 2013”.If you haven’t seen it yet, you are invited to visit daily 10:00 – 5:30 Monday – Saturday, and Noon – 5:00 on Sunday at the Lake Club – 16016 Topsail Terrace, Lakewood Ranch – 34202. We are all very proud to be part of the Nelson Homes team! As if this wasn’t honor enough – Derek Nelson, ARH franchise owner and Building Company President of Nelson Homes, Inc, was awarded the prestigious “Chairman’s Award” by Art Rutenberg himself. This honor is not something given every year, only when special achievements are recognized.So now we move into July, looking forward to adding new customers to our building family and invite newcomers!Email me, I would love to hear from y’all!
