While celebrated homebuilders Jerry Aguirre and Hector Garcia are duly impressed with the countless design and planning awards their company has earned over the past 25 years, they take the greatest pleasure in their growing family of satisfied homeowners residing in the 50-plus SH Communities sprinkled throughout Florida.
That sentiment is amplified by their company slogan, "We're Building Something Special for You." It's a slogan that recognizes success hinges on a constancy to purpose and a commitment to excellence.
"Our reputation is built on the satisfaction of our homeowners and affirmed by industry experts who've honored us with over 200 planning and design awards," said Aguirre, noting SH Communities has earned the most awards of any builder in Florida's BEST Awards over the past five years.
"We don't develop projects, we create communities that have a sense of place and neighborhood," said Aguirre. "And within our communities we build homes not houses...homes with heart and soul and lifestyles that are a careful blend of imagination, inspiration and architectural artistry."
The company's award-winning homes with in-house design by Southern Architectural Group can be found in communities in Homestead, Davie, Miramar, Boynton Beach, Estero, and Melbourne. "The future is Florida and we've been building it for 25 years," said Aguirre, noting the company's seven active communities are:
