Brookfield Residential Named Finalist in Building Industry Association's Annual Awards

The Homebuilder Is Being Recognized in Three Categories Including Best Architectural Design, Best Interior Design, and Best Sales Professional

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2015) - Brookfield Residential has been named a finalist in three categories for the 2015 Building Industry Association of San Diego County (BIA) Icon Awards, which will take place on September 19 in La Jolla. The annual event recognizes homebuilders who have demonstrated excellence in new home architecture, design, and sales and marketing over the past year.

Brookfield's Descanso Residence 2 design in San Diego is a finalist for Best Architecture, while the builder's Liberty Residence 3 design in Winchester is being considered for Best Interior Design. These designations aren't the first for these communities. In fact, Liberty was named "Community of the Year" and Descanso took home "Best Architectural Design" for its Residence 2 model at the 2014 BIA SoCal Awards.

Michelle Templeton, a long-time Brookfield Residential sales associate currently selling homes at Brookfield's Big Sky community at Audie Murphy Ranch in Menifee, is also a finalist. Templeton is being considered for Best Sales Professional.

"We're delighted be an Icon Awards finalist, with recognition from professionals who know the ins and outs of our industry," said Rocky Tracy, VP of Sales for Brookfield Residential Southern California. "We're proud of these home designs, as well as the dedication and commitment of Michelle and our sales teams who work hard to improve the home buying experience."

Descanso's Residence 2 design blends interior and exterior living spaces, seamlessly connecting the great room with the professionally landscaped rear yard. The home has five bedrooms including a private first floor bedroom suite, a prep kitchen adjacent to the chef's kitchen, a grand foyer entry and more.

"This distinctive home has dramatic curb appeal and architectural details that you would usually only find in a custom home," adds Tracy.

At Liberty, Brookfield Residential partnered with interior design firm CDC Designs to create model homes worthy of several visits. Liberty's Residence 3 interiors showcase modern conveniences like a cutting-edge kitchen, accented by warm, earthy tones and furnishings throughout. A great room and large home site with outdoor games complete the design.
