RISMEDIA, Jan. 14, 2008–Building upon his recent accolades as an 8-time HOBI award winner for outstanding achievements in the construction industry, New Canaan, Conn. resident Randy Salvatore received the ultimate recognition for professional excellence when he was named “2007 Builder of the Year” by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut (HBRA).
The announcement was made at the HBRA’s gala awards ceremony, held on December 8 to recognize those builders who inspired excellence in their field through their work. It also marked the 60th anniversary of the HBRA.
In selecting Salvatore as “Builder of the Year,” Maureen Jacobson, Fairfield County Executive Officer of the HBRA, cited his ability to think outside of the box with innovative marketing, dynamic sales techniques and diversified strategies in positioning his projects for sale under increasingly challenging market conditions.
Randy’s recent projects include The Village at River’s Edge and The Village at Maple Pointe in Stamford, Conn., both of which garnered HOBI awards for overall construction excellence, consumer value and marketing ingenuity.
“Randy Salvatore brings an entrepreneurial spirit and fresh outlook to the construction industry,” she said, “not only in the way he builds his projects, but also in the way he markets them.” She explained that Salvatore continually seeks to engage his customers’ best interests throughout the entire construction process, from instituting customized websites for each project, highlighting construction and architectural detailing and finish options, to showcasing completed and impeccably furnished model units that provide buyers with a complete visual of the lifestyle his homes offer.
“His business philosophy is uniquely focused on the psychology of today’s buyer and sets him apart as a leader in Connecticut’s competitive construction industry.”
Joanne Carroll, publisher of Connecticut Builder magazine, concurs.
“Randy Salvatore has achieved incredible success with every community he has undertaken. Despite the fact that each of his Stamford townhouse communities presented significant approval and site development challenges, his professionalism and development skills allowed him to build and sell quality, affordably priced housing on both sites in record time. At a young age, Randy is a stand out in the industry.”
In addition to being awarded Connecticut’s “Builder of the Year” in 2007, Randy received “Community of the Year” and “Best Mid-Sized Attached Community in Connecticut” awards for The Village at River’s Edge, a 170-town home community located in the Springdale section of Stamford, Connecticut. He also received the 2006 “Best Mid-Sized Attached Community” for The Village at Maple Pointe in Stamford; the 2004 “Best Multi-Family Community” for The Phoenix on Isaac in Norwalk; 2003 “Best Small Attached Community” for Vine Meadows, a townhouse development in Stamford; “Special Recognition Award” in 2002 for a 12,000 sq. ft. custom home in New Canaan, and three marketing awards for The Village at River’s Edge.
