HOUSTON, Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Surge Homes, Houston-based real estate developer and builder, was recognized as Developer of the Year today in Houston Agent Magazine's 2016 Houston Agents' Choice Awards. Although its management team has decades of experience in the new home industry, the company made its Houston debut in 2014 and revolutionized the Inner Loop housing market by building innovative developments in sought-after neighborhoods at unmatched price points. Immediately after sales began for its new homes in 2016, Surge Homes became the fastest-selling new home builder in its market.
In a quote to Houston Agent Magazine, Ben Lemieux, co-owner of Surge Homes said, "We began purchasing land in Houston's Inner Loop in 2000 and our vision was that home buyers of all ages would embrace the newer, more dense developments and homes with a smaller footprint in prime, walkable neighborhoods. Today, our dream is becoming reality and we are selling faster than we can build. We owe thanks to Houston's real estate community for understanding our vision early on and helping us to succeed in making homeownership possible for many Houstonians."
In 2016 alone, Surge Homes launched three new developments in Upper Kirby, Midtown and the Museum District at pricing not seen elsewhere in these neighborhoods. With their Parc at Midtown development, they became the first developer to bring tiny condos (also called micro condos) to Houston that will deliver in September 2017. Additionally, Parc at Midtown boasts the only exclusive park for its residents, six of whom will be lucky enough to own townhomes with private yards immediately adjacent to the park. Also part of this development is the unique concept of two-story condominiums, which Surge Homes coined Sky Townhomes™.
Parc at Midtown is a $22 million, 80-home development featuring condos, one-of-a-kind Sky Townhomes™, penthouses and townhomes. Ninety percent of condos sold in eight months and the first townhomes will deliver in March 2017. Upper Richton, in the Upper Kirby District, is an $8.2 million, 13-home community comprising nine single-family homes and four attached townhomes, which sold 55 percent of its inventory in eight days. Beginning of delivery is also planned for March 2017. Museum BLVD is an $11 million, 49-home, mid-rise condo development located in the Museum District. In only four months, 72 VIP reservations with earnest money have been made.
Surge Homes also premiered its design collection of 70 European-inspired, interior design packages for kitchens and bathrooms. An unprecedented number, these professionally coordinated packages include selections for flooring, cabinetry, backsplashes, countertops and wall tiles. To innovate and build what future homeowners really want, Surge Homes deployed a unique crowdsourcing process involving 3,400 potential home buyers.
"It is a real honor to win this award considering the hundreds of excellent developers in the Greater Houston area, including fellow finalists David Weekley Homes and Perry Homes. Our success tells us we are building what homeowners want. Stay tuned because there are more developments in the pipeline," said Louis Conrad, co-owner of Surge Homes.
Additionally, Surge Homes was recognized as one of five nominees in Construction Dive's 2016 Dive Awards for Homebuilding Innovator of the Year.
