HOBI Awards

On Wednesday November 14, 2012, a record 700 home building industry professionals attended the 19th annual HOBI Awards dinner held at the Aqua Turf in Southington. Sponsored by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut and produced and chaired by Joanne Carroll of JMC Resources, the HOBI Awards is the state’s most prestigious housing industry program, recognizing excellence in new construction, land development, remodeling, sales and marketing, and home financing. Winners are selected by a panel of HOBI Judges with expertise in various aspects of home building. The judges review applications submitted by HBA members, and travel the state for several days, touring selected homes and communities.

"It is a tribute to the spirit and resilience of this industry that as we recover from the worst housing recession in history, 700 attended this year’s HOBI Awards dinner," said HBRA of Connecticut President, Liz Verna.

“After six years of negative news, isn’t it great to hear
Housing Is Now the Bright Spot in the Economy? And we are!
Housing is on the rebound. The Fed promises to keep long term rates down
for 3 more years & builder/supplier confidence is up for a change …
And although we do have a long way to go, Connecticut building permits
increased 40% this year over last year!
The 2012 Top Award Winners are extraordinary, and the 2012 HOBI Powerpoint Presentation demonstrates the outstanding work of HBA members across Connecticut.
