Atlanta, GA, May 21, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Builder Magazine and Professional Builder Magazine recently released their annual rankings of the nation’s top builders. In a year that has been hit by a struggling economy, Bowen Family Homes was ranked 39 on Builder Magazine’s 2008 Builder 100 list and 66 on Professional Builder Magazine’s 2009 Housing Giants list.
“In a year where the housing industry struggled, we are thrilled to again be recognized by both Builder Magazine and Professional Builder Magazine,” said Mike Phelps, one of the owners of Bowen Family Homes. “It is an honor to continue to be recognized as one of the top builders in the nation. Every builder has had to adapt to this economy and these rankings are a testament to the quality of homes and customer service that we continue to offer our potential home buyers.”
Both lists were based on number of homes closed in 2008. Bowen’s ranking of 39 on the 2008 Builder 100 list is up from last year’s ranking of 43 while their ranking of 66 on the 2009 Housing Giants list is up from 78 the previous year. Professional Builder Magazine’s Housing Giants list typically honors the top 400 builders, but due to the economy this year’s list only featured 350 builders.
