How Neal Became Professional Builder of the Year


Every year, Professional Builder magazine awards the Builder of the Year title to a home builder whose innovative ideas, designs, styles and customer service results represent the best in home building. Neal was proud to take home the award in 2015, and the things that earned us the prestigious title are the same things we believe set us apart as Southwest Florida’s top builder.

After 41 years in this industry, our love of Florida and our commitment to our homeowners haven’t changed. Every day, we strive to improve the lives of our customers by building quality products, providing high value to our buyers and establishing the highest standards of customer service. In order to do that, we’ve focused our efforts on a few key areas that allow us to continue to grow as a company.

During the recession, when other builders were going out of business, Neal Communities was growing and thriving. One of the ways we accomplished this was by centering our efforts around acquiring land that we built on ourselves, rather than selling it off to another builder. This allowed us to create upscale Neal communities with a sustainable focus.

By building out entire planned communities, we’ve been able to integrate our processes every step of the way — from purchasing the land, through development, and into building and sales. With all our teams working together, we create a cohesive Neal experience from the moment you step into one of our sales centers. And you can expect the same level of care and commitment from us, no matter which Neal community you decide to call home.

We’ve also maintained a commitment to preserving natural spaces in and around our communities in order to add value to your property. When we purchase land, we don’t begin our development process by clearing it — we start by surveying the entire property and marking which trees we want to keep in their current place, and which ones we will save and relocate during the development process.

In Neal neighborhoods, you won’t find straight roads in a perfect grid. Our homesites are planned around nature, with roads winding around oaks and palms, open spaces, and pristine lakes and nature preserves. We keep landscaping a top priority in order to add to the beauty and value of your property.

As a privately owned home builder, we’re able to better address the needs of our customers, and work with homeowners individually to ensure they’re completely satisfied with their Neal home. We do what’s right for our customers, often taking care of any issues that arise long after the warranty has expired, which has resulted in lifelong Neal homeowners who go on to purchase a second and third home with us. We also have a 98 percent customer satisfaction rate — one of the greatest benchmarks of our success as a home builder.

We consistently keep our family values, integrity and professionalism top-of-mind in everything we do. And we’d be honored to welcome you into the Neal family as one of our valued homeowners.
