RGVBA Thanks Its 2020 Parade of Homes Judges
The Rio Grande Valley Builders Association would like to extend its appreciation to the 2020 Parade of Homes judges who determined the winners of this year’s Parade competition.
It was undoubtedly a challenging task to organize and hold the Parade this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The Association is grateful for the support of the Parade judges who generously gave of their time and talents to make this a successful event despite the constraints of the pandemic, which required the Parade to be a virtual event.
The judges were recruited from outside our market by Leslie Shey (2-10 Home Buyers Warranty), and they were able to review the entries’ virtual tours online. With the exception of the “People’s Choice” award that was determined by viewers who toured the homes online and rated the homes, all of the other awards were determined by a compilation of all of the judges’ scores.
Judging the 2020 Parade of Homes were the following: Ana Leyva, Office Manager – RE Signature Homes, Laredo, TX; Jerry Garcia, Owner/Builder – Hacienda Construction, Corpus Christi, TX ; and Rick Adams – Building Official, Port Aransas, TX. The panel of judges had a good understanding of the building industry with the majority of their experience in residential construction and design.
Completing the judging staff for the 2020 Parade of Homes was Scott Martin, manager of Energy Rating Solutions, an Energy Consulting firm in Corpus Christi that provides an extensive array of rating and inspection services. Scott is a RESNET certified rater with 12 years of experience in the rating industry and over 37 years in the HVAC industry. He was the perfect choice for judging the winner of the “Most Energy Efficient Home” award, which this year was given to two builders who tied for the award: Villanueva Construction and Divine Custom Homes.
