The Arizona Real Estate Achievement (AREA) Awards — selected by a panel of industry experts — honor the state’s best and brightest real estate companies, real estate agents, real estate brokers, mortgage companies, bankers, home builders, individuals who give back to the community, and those in the real estate business whose careers have left an indelible mark on the community and on the industry.
AREA AWARDS: HOME BUILDER OF THE YEAR
Lennar has been developing master planned communities in Arizona for nearly 40 years. Since 2000, Alan M. Jones has been at the helm of Lennar in Arizona. In 2011, Jones and Lennar shook things up with a new, multi-generational home concept “Next Gen — The home within a home.” Next Gen was developed to meet the needs of ever-evolving, multi-generational family dynamics. Whether it is an elderly parent living with their grown child’s family, a young adult “boomeranging” back to live in mom and dad’s house, or the in-laws from out-of-town visiting for extended periods of time during the winter months in the Valley of the Sun, Lennar’s Next Gen floor plans are designed to accommodate the trend that has seen more than 51 million Americans living in multigenerational households.
