Highland Homes ranked among top builders in the nation


Florida builder Highland Homes has ranked No. 81 in BUILDER Magazine’s “Builder 100 List” of largest home builder in the nation and No. 129 in Professional Builder’s “2016 Housing Giants,” an annual list of the nation’s largest builders.

Highland Homes moved up in the rankings on both lists from last year, climbing 21 spots on the Builder 100 list and 25 spots on the Housing Giants list.

“As a family-owned company…it is such an honor to be included in these lists alongside many corporate home builders with projects across the country,” said Bob Adams, owner and president of Highland Homes. “We have grown so much in the last few years, and we look forward to helping even more new home buyers in 2016.”

BUILDER Magazine collected data for the rankings through a survey of the nation’s top builders to compile the Builder 100 and Next 100 lists. Rankings were determined based on the number of new home closings in 2015. Highland Homes closed 485 new homes last year to be ranked as the number 81 largest builder in the nation, a 28 percent increase over 2014.

In Professional Builder’s Housing Giants, home building companies are ranked based upon their revenue. With 2015 revenues of $95.29 million – a 31 percent increase over 2014 – Highland Homes earned its place as number 129 largest builder in the nation out of the 252 builders ranked.

The company builds new homes in communities throughout Central, North Central, Southwest and Tampa Bay, Florida, offering everything from townhomes to luxury estate homes.
