ADDISON, Texas, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Grand Homes is an established local business in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex that is proud of the absence of Grand Homes complaints. This lack of Grand Homes complaints greatly contributed to the recognition that Grand Homes received in October 2012 when the company was bestowed with the Hugh Prather Award.
The Dallas Builders Association presents the Hugh Prather Award annually to the builder, developer, or remodeler member who is considered to have most effectively invested in the betterment of his community. For the last 60 years, the award has also recognized the quality of being a good citizen that is committed to helping others.
The principles held by the Dallas Builders Association's first president were the inspiration for this award. Hugh Prather believed in the importance of respecting your fellow man and going above and beyond the duties of business to improve the community around you. Most importantly for this award, the recipients are expected to reflect positively on the building industry.
CEO Stephen Brooks was honored to accept this esteemed award on October 4, 2012 on behalf of Grand Homes at the Dallas Builders Association's Officers Banquet. Other recent honorees include Keller Webster and Bill Darling, Bob Darling, and Steve Darling.
In response to this tribute, Stephen Brooks commented, "Our mission statement at Grand Homes is to serve God, to improve the quality of life for our employees, customers and trade partners, but a big part of our culture is to support our community and help improve the quality of life for those who need it most. I am constantly inspired by our employees who care for each other and who give of themselves to their community…. This is an incredible honor and I totally did not expect it."
Stephen Brooks has led Grand Homes with few Grand Homes complaints as the company has worked to invest time and money back into the DFW community through its charitable efforts. Most notably, Grand Homes has a long partnership with HOPE International. Brooks currently serves on the Board of Directors of HOPE International. Grand Homes is in the process of constructing their 4th Home for HOPE, which is expected to be complete in March of 2013.
Last year, Brooks took the opportunity to visit Haiti in support of HOPE International's endeavor to mentor entrepreneurs towards self-sufficiency. Other international efforts include a partnership with Grace Presbyterian Church to build a home in Tijuana, Mexico, as well as the year-round support of teachers and students at the Imbirikani Girls High School in Kenya.
As Grand Homes moves forwards, Stephen Brooks hopes to maintain the company's charitable reputation as well as the absence of Grand Homes complaints.
