Robert Thomas Homes Wins 6 Reggie Awards – 2017 Parade of Homes

November 2nd, 2017

It’s been a remarkable year for Robert Thomas Homes, and what a great way to celebrate at the annual Building Industry Gala (aka the BIG Night) presented by the Builders Association of the Twin Cities last Thursday, October 26th. We look forward to this event each year, because it brings together the industry’s finest to honor the top builders and trade partners for their excellence in the home building industry.

This year was like no other, because Robert Thomas Homes earned SIX Reggie Awards℠ for homes that were in the 2017 Fall Parade of Homes®. These models were six of 19 homes to win the coveted Reggie Award℠.

What is a Reggie Award℠ & How is it judged?

Each home entered is judged by panel of other builders and industry professionals that view the houses during the Parade of Homes®. The criteria for the Reggie Awards℠ are based on a series of categories including design, construction quality and value of the home.

“Homes that earn our coveted Reggie Award are truly the best of the best,” explained BATC-Housing First Minnesota Executive Director, David Siegel. “The builders and industry professionals who evaluate each home bring a keen and knowledgeable eye toward quality in their selection of the winners.”
