Howell Township, N.J., February 23, 2004:  There’s no substitute for the best, and that certainly holds true when it comes to homes.  Perhaps that’s why The National Association of Home Builders honored M. Rieder Companies’ Toscana with two top awards at the recent National Sales and Marketing Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, including “Best Single Family Detached Home!”


“This type of national recognition for outstanding achievement is really an honor, and everyone at M. Rieder Companies is absolutely thrilled,” says Jack Mandelbaum, Vice President of M. Rieder Companies.  “There’s no question that Toscana is exceptional in every respect, and the neighborhood’s success is the result of years of careful planning, meticulous attention to detail, and outstanding design; not to mention a tireless group of talented professionals that have set the bar for excellence in home building.” 


The regional award of “Best Home Single Family Detached Home Design” was presented to M. Rieder Companies for the stunning Siena model.  The home offers a gracious floorplan that features dramatic architectural elements, a smart floorplan, and distinctive appointments that addresses busy lifestyles, along with the need for amenities that provide a living environment characterized by comfort, luxury, and style.  M. Rieder Companies was also honored for “Best Broker Promotion,” yet another coveted regional award of achievement.       


Toscana homes are attractively priced from the $400’s, and feature gracious master-suites with sumptuous baths, gourmet kitchens with center islands, hardwood flooring throughout the first floor, and more.  And, all homes also benefit from the innovative new Energy Star Program. M. Rieder Companies has endowed homes at Toscana with this program that makes them at least 30 percent more energy efficient than the norm. As a result, homeowners’ monthly energy bills are dramatically reduced. What’s more, they easily outperform other new homes -- not merely in reduced energy costs, but also in terms of uniform quality and comfort.


With the creation and design of Toscana, M. Rieder Companies has once again shown how intuitive and sensitive they are to the desires and needs of people searching for a very particular way of life. M. Rieder Companies has been building beautiful, high-quality family homes for more than 40 years.
