HAMLET HOMES IS FINALIST FOR NATIONAL HOUSING QUALITY AWARD MURRAY, UTAH(July 13, 2006) —
Hamlet Homes was recently chosen as a finalist for the National Housing Quality Award® (NHQA), the highest level of quality achievement in the housing industry. The judging process entailed a panel of judges holding a two-day site visit at Hamlet to evaluate how the homebuilder’s commitment to customer-focused quality plays into construction, business management, sales, design and warranty service “As a first-time finalist of the NHQ Awards, this is the most prestigious recognition Hamlet has ever received,” says Michael Brodsky, owner and chairman of Hamlet Homes. “We are honored to have achieved this status and give a great deal of credit to our employees who have significantly contributed to this success. The application process itself, over the last few years, has been a tremendous learning experience and has benefited our organization immensely.” Following the site visit, Hamlet received a detailed report from the judges that contained feedback of areas in which they excelled, as well as suggestions for improvement. Winners of the 14th annual NHQ Awards will be announced and presented with a gold, silver or honorable mention award at the Professional Builder Benchmark Conference, September 26-29, 2006 in Las Vegas. Patterned after the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award, the NHQ Awards is sponsored by the NAHB Research Center and the Reed Business Information. Hamlet has been building quality, customer-oriented homes for ten years, filling a much-needed niche in the Utah housing market and continues to maintain its spot as one of the leading Utah homebuilders. In 2005, Hamlet finished an excellent year by closing on 342 homes. For more information about Hamlet Homes, visit www.hamlethomes.com or call (801) 281-2223.
