Meritage Homes won the following awards at this year’s 2016 MAME Awards in April: Best Television Commercial, Best Model Merchandising for a Detached Home with a Sales Price of $550,001 – $700,000, and Salesperson of the Year.

According to Raleigh Division President Lawrence Lane, Meritage Homes accepted three Gold MAME (Major Achievements in Marketing Excellence) Awards in association with the Home Builder’s Association of Raleigh-Wake and Durham. Presenting the awards was the Triangle Sales & Marketing Council.

The MAME Awards search for the most outstanding efforts in communities in terms of effective advertising, merchandising, and product design, and sales efforts.

In regards to the award-winning television commercial, Meritage Homes reflected the company’s desire to put the consumer first, creating confidence as one of the most trusted builders in America. Meritage Homes’ Television Commercial also touched on their newest innovations in energy efficient designs, as well as presented their Triangle-area neighborhood locations.

Winning the MAME for the Best Model Merchandising for a Detached Home with a Sales Price of $550,001 – $700,000 was The Monroe III model home by Meritage located at Blaney Farms in Apex. Known for its design style, the Monroe III consists of dark mahogany wood finishes with curvy lines that signify “transitional glamour.”

Joe McCombes took home the highly desired MAME of Salesperson of the Year, representing Meritage Homes as the Sales Associate for the Green Home Crossing Community in Cary and Cotten Place Community in Morrisville. As an active member of the HBA of Raleigh-Wake County, McCombes closed 72 homes to put his total sales at more than $22,000,000 in 2015.

Lane said, “The Meritage team is delighted to have been recognized with these MAME Awards.”

He continued, “We are dedicated to providing top quality, energy efficient new homes to families and individuals in desirable locations. To be recognized for ‘doing what we do’ on a daily basis is a terrific compliment that we truly appreciate. We’re proud to build homes in the vibrant Triangle area.”

At this time, Meritage Homes is in the process of putting up homes in Apex at Blaney Farms; in Cary at Green Hope Crossing; in Chapel Hill at Legacy at Jordan Lake; in Durham at Meadows at Southpoint and Jordan at Southpoint; in Morrisville at Cotten Place; and in Raleigh at Trenton Pointe at Umstead.
