Southwest Florida—During the typically slowest time of year for Florida real estate, John Neal Homes sold 14 homes during the third quarter of 2012 totaling $10,255,000. That is more than double the sales and revenue made over the same period last year. During the third quarter in 2011, the new home builder sold six homes totaling approximately $4 million. “We are experiencing tremendous growth,” said John Neal, president of the Lakewood Ranch based new home building company. “There a number of factors that we attribute this record breaking season to- including our increasing referral rate as our company grows, our unmatched customer service rating, and a market on the rebound,” said Neal.
With zero debt, John Neal Homes provides security for its employees and its customers in an unstable market. This has allowed the company to use its resources to improve and expand the business, while others have not. John Neal Homes quickly became the largest custom home builder in Manatee County after opening in 2010 and currently owns half of the lot inventory in Lakewood Ranch’s Country Club East community. In May, the fast growing custom home builder also launched a new division that offers a custom lot experience for buyers looking to create a uniquely designed home on their own lot. Taking advantage of the turning point in a recovering real estate market, the custom lot experience is ideal for people who either already own their own site or are looking to purchase a site and need assistance. John Neal Homes has already commenced construction on several privately owned lots in Bradenton, Venice, Parrish, on Siesta Key and in Freeport (Bahamas).
Affiliated with the Neal family of companies, John Neal Homes is completely integrated, with its engineering and building team, plus PureStyle design and Waterscapes, the fifth largest pool company in the state. “We form the most experienced custom builder team in the area,” said Neal. Working closely with Neal Communities, John Neal Homes’ customers have a large variety of floorplans to choose from and customize, and buyers will benefit from being able to browse through the more than 50 models that Neal Communities currently has in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
Established in 2010, John Neal Homes has an enviable positive customer referral rate. Striving for excellence in every home, John Neal works tirelessly with one simple goal, to build homes that celebrate our state, our history and our homeowners. As a long-time Florida resident and member of the community, John Neal focuses on simple values, conservation, responsibility, comfort, style and forward-thinking design. The company's honors and accolades include Aurora Awards for models in The Country Club at Lakewood Ranch and Country Club East and several Parade of Homes awards. John Neal was named as one of the Gulf Coast Business Review’s 40 under 40 in 2011 and a person to watch by Biz941. John Neal Homes is a custom builder that designs homes in planned communities as well as on your lot. For more information go to www.homesbyjohnneal.com
