Texas Star Awards

Congratulations to all our WINNERS!  You represent the best in Texas and best in the industry.  Thank you to the over 300 Star Award Presentation attendees we had in the audience.  It was a truly magical celebration of Texas' finest builders, remodelers, designer, developers and associates. 

In 1992, the Texas Association of Builders launched the Texas Star Awards — the only statewide tribute to excellence in the home building industry. The 2014 Star Awards showcases the outstanding work of builders, remodelers, architects, designers, sales professionals, marketing professionals, construction professionals and industry leaders in Texas and the Southwest! With more than 75 categories to choose from and hundreds of entries each year, it is an impressive feat to be identified as a finalist, let alone a winner.
