Legacy Homes wins 2016 Best in Business Award

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: January 7, 2016

Legacy Homes of Huntsville has been named the 2016 Best in Business Award recipient for North Alabama, the only home builder to receive this distinction.

Last year, local consumers participated in a market survey and were asked to nominate businesses and professionals they felt were worthy of the distinction Best in Business. Once the results were compiled and tabulated, the Best in Business Award Association began an extensive selection process. Each nominee first had to demonstrate a positive track record of responding to complaints with the local Better Business Bureau, a prerequisite of the program.

Next, the owner or officer of the nominated business was required to participate in an assessment interview with Best in Business Award. Topics ranging from experience and hiring practices of their employees to liability insurance coverage and customer service procedures were discussed, just to name a few. Discerning the business’ overall reputation in the community is the final and most important step of the process, since Best in Business Award only designates one recipient per category. Feedback from other recipients, community leaders who would know the nominee’s background and how the business owner is viewed from a humanitarian aspect are used to gauge a nominee’s overall reputation in the community. For instance, insurance companies were asked which roofing contractors are on their preferred list. Home inspectors were questioned about the craftsmanship quality of area homebuilders; then general contractors were asked which subcontractors have a dependable track record.

“It is an honor to receive this award and is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our employees, building suppliers, subcontractors, preferred lenders, and our Realtor partners” said Jeff Korotky, president of Legacy Homes. “Our mission is to deliver the highest quality, energy-efficient homes with innovative designs at an extraordinary value. Being honored by this prestigious award affirms our mission and is a proud accomplishment for our company.”

The Best in Business Award program provides consumers a reliable resource to help guide, identify and select a business based upon experience, reputation, integrity, quality and trust.

“Selecting an exceptional slate of recipients for our award was time consuming and required us to be thorough” said John Gaylor of Best in Business Award. “And allowing local consumers to take part in the process also gave us a credible point of reference from which to begin our search. When consumers call upon our recipients, they can do so with the assurance that these businesses are worthy of this notable distinction.”

Realtor for – 12 years

Originally from – Huntsville, AL

Has been calling Huntsville home for all my life 🙂

What do you enjoy most about being a Realtor? Serving people. Helping calm
people during this crazy stressful time in their lives

If you could give one tip to a buyer what would it be? Be financially ready
to purchase a home. Have money in a savings account. Things will happen

What do you remember most about your first home sale? The first person I sold
a home to was a young couple that told me they wanted to have their house
paid for in 15 years. They did it in 8!

On a work day where might we find you having lunch? In my car 🙂 or at
the nursing home with my grandpa

Favorite charity? Too many great charities out there for me to pick my
favorite. My family and I have financially provided for a boy in Africa and a girl
in Haiti for years, but there are tons of great charities to get involved with.

Favorite memory? My sweetest memory is of me sitting on the bed with the wonderful man that raised me. He was in his last days of pancreatic cancer. We were debating if this life saver candy was banana or pineapple. I still smile when I see yellow lifesavers.

Cheers for – any team my kids are playing on!

Hobbies: I like to run

Favorite song – Colton Dixon : Through All Of It

I chose real estate because I feel God chose real estate for me. I was a
teacher before and just didn’t feel that was where I needed to be. I prayed for a
long time to have a career that I could still be available to see my kids grow and
still provide food on our table and I have that! The flexible time lets me be a mom and give back to the community in ways I couldn’t before.
