Winning Builder of the Year the first time around was a great honor, but to be recognized back-to-back two years in a row—after one of the most unprecedented seasons in the industry—is incredibly humbling.

The Dallas Builders Association has announced winners of its 42nd Annual McSAM Awards, presented on July 24th, to recognize maximum creativity in sales and marketing.

For the second year in a row, M/I Homes - Dallas maintained its reigning title as Builder of the Year after an outstanding year of growth and excellence.

We didn't set our goals to just grow without structure—we sought out to define what "Welcome to Better" means to our division during a year none of us will soon forget.

This prestigious accolade is a true testament to the combined effort of every team member across the M/I Homes - Dallas division.

From our purchasing team overcoming shortages and working endlessly to keep our customers safe in an ever-changing environment, to our team of top-performing New Home Consultants who offer guidance and assurance while walking alongside homeowners through every milestone of the new home journey, and our impressive team of Construction Managers who work tirelessly to ensure our homes are built on time and exceed quality standards, M/I Homes proudly repeats the company tagline, "Welcome to Better" for homeowners, employees, and teammates at every step of the homebuilding journey.

It is the culmination of all team members contributing to a purpose-driven winning culture and experience that most notably sets M/I Homes apart.

From every valued homeowner who has chosen M/I Homes as their new home builder to every trade partner and vendor who are truly the backbone of what we do, we would like to express our immense and sincere gratitude. We could not have done it without you!

Not only was M/I Homes - Dallas recognized as Builder of the Year for 2021, but several individuals were also recognized within their categories including the following:

Sales Professional of the Year: Community with an average sales price under $350k: Emily JosephEmily Joseph - McSAM Awards Sales Professional of the Year 2021

Builder Project Manager of the Year: Klay DoddKlay Dodd - McSAM Awards Builder Project Manager of the Year 2021

Best Interior Merchandising under $300k: Sweetwater Model HomeMcSAM Awards 2021 Best Interior Merchandising under $300k: Sweetwater Model Home

One of our co-founders told us, "Don’t forget to treat my customers right," and it is the mantra that is echoed down the halls throughout each division and continuously woven through every interaction.

As one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, M/I Homes takes great pride in serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area. You’ll find that the M/I Difference is far more than the confidence of our Whole Home Building Standards, the peace of mind of our Transferable Structural Warranty, or the flexibility and personalization of our optimized floorplans.

It's also the sincerity and integrity of every person who contributes to making the journey of homeownership a truly memorable experience. With a firm belief in our company and our product, it's also why several of our employees have trusted M/I Homes as their new home builder.

If you haven't toured one of our new home communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex yet, we would be delighted to help you find your dream home.

M/I Homes would like to sincerely thank the McSAM Awards, Judges, and the Dallas Builders Association for this sterling achievement as well as all of our vendor partners and homeowners for helping us achieve this milestone.
