Rancho Mission Viejo Named “Master-Planned Community of the Year”

The results are in! Rancho Mission Viejo has just been named the Southern California “Master-Planned Community of the Year,” and we couldn’t be happier to share the news you!

This prestigious honor was awarded by the Greater Sales and Marketing Council for the Building Industry Association of Southern California, a nonprofit trade association representing nearly 1,000 companies involved in the planning and building of new-home residential communities across Southern California.

As one of the building industry’s most coveted honors, “Master-Planned Community of the Year” was bestowed on Rancho Mission Viejo and its first Village of Sendero during the 2013 SoCal Awards ceremony on October 5th, 2013. The SoCal Awards recognize excellence within the building industry with an emphasis on sales, marketing and merchandising, and a judging panel of esteemed industry experts selected Rancho Mission Viejo for the community’s intergenerational design, strong community values, overall sales process (both online and offline) and the overall customer experience. Several other top honors were awarded to Rancho Mission Viejo across the board, including:

Rancho Mission Viejo:

• Best Special Promotion – Rancho Mission Viejo Builder Fairs
• Best Sales Experience – The Guest House at Sendero
• Best Digital Sales Tools
• Best Internet Marketing

“These honors wouldn’t have been possible without the inspiration and direction of Rancho Mission Viejo’s President and CEO Tony Moiso and his family,” explained Nadine Corrigan, VP of marketing at Ranch Mission Viejo. “Through their stewardship of the magnificent ranch property, Tony and his family established the perfect canvas for the creation of the Sendero community.”

The Neighborhood Builders at Rancho Mission Viejo also received tremendous recognition for their expert construction, superior designs and dedication to an extraordinary customer experience.

Congratulations to Sendero’s Neighborhood Builders!

Close to 600 of Southern California’s top homebuilding industry and marketing professionals were in attendance at Saturday’s event to honor the finalists and winners, many of whom were Sendero’s very own builders, marketing partners and dedicated employees.

Rancho Mission Viejo would like to acknowledge the hard work, achievements and professional excellence of the Sendero Neighborhood Builders and partners who were recognized at the 2013 SoCal Awards in the following categories:

Sendero Neighborhood Builders:

  • Best Interior Merchandising of a Detached Home Under 1,500 sq. ft. – Standard Pacific Bungalows at Sendero

  • Community of the Year – TRI Pointe at Sendero
  • Best Brochure – Lyon Homes

“We couldn’t be more proud to be working with the best of the best,” said Corrigan. “From its inception, Rancho Mission Viejo has had a unique mission – to provide a rich and grounded way of life in the South Orange County area. We are proud of what Sendero has become and the lifestyle opportunity it offers its residents. These awards exemplify the hard work, dedication and passion that our entire team has invested in this community, and we are honored to be recognized.”
