Congratulations are in order for Windsong Ranch in Prosper, which snagged “People’s Choice Community of the Year” at the 37th annual McSAM Awards from the Dallas Builders Association. The event, which recognizes “maximum creativity in sales and marketing,” drew more than 300 entries this year with winners named in 58 categories and jurists from all over the nation.

“The People’s Choice Award is THE coveted award of the night because it is a customer satisfaction award that shows our success in creating the best community for our homeowners,” said Craig Martin, Founding Partner of Terra Verde Group, the developer of Windsong Ranch. “Our residents ranked Windsong highest in overall lifestyle, amenities and customer service compared to all the other communities in DFW.”

We’re thrilled at the news, as it’s another trophy in Windsong Ranch’s growing awards case.

Windsong Ranch has received 20 local, state, and national awards in just two years, including recognition for its welcome center from the National Association of Home Builders. The development features work from Good, Fulton and Farrell Architects, TBG as master planners and landscape architect, Creative License International for the welcome center and interior design, and Anderson Hanson Blanton as the advertising agency.

“Residents love this community and the outstanding lifestyle programming that Lauren Stephan, our lifestyle director, has implemented,” Martin said. “It has created a very close knit, happy community and these industry awards reemphasize what an incredible development we have built. Windsong Ranch has exceeded our expectations in every way.”

According to the DBA, a third-party research firm surveyed the homeowners from each community entered and residents then rate their satisfaction in a variety of categories. The winner is determined by the community receiving the highest rating. Considering the incredible amenities available at the 2,030-acre development, it’s no wonder that Windsong Ranch took the top award.

At Windsong Ranch there are 600 acres of green space woven throughout the community that include parks, open play areas, creeks, ponds, and miles of hike and bike trails. The Commons area is the heart of the neighborhood where residents enjoy Windsong Café, an outdoor living room, resort-style pools with cabanas and grilling areas, an event lawn, a lakeside amphitheater with floating stage, a state-of-the-art fitness center, four tennis courts and a kids creative play area. New amenities nearing completion include a mountain bike course and a championship disc golf course.

Congratulations, Windsong Ranch!
