William Lyon Homes (WLH) was again recognized as one of the nation’s premier homebuilders, winning 13 Eliant Homebuyers’ Choice Awards based on 2013 homebuyer survey results, the most of any homebuilder for the second year in a row. The Eliant awards recognize U.S. and Canadian homebuilders that provide customers with the best purchase and ownership experiences as reported by buyers of new homes.

“Receiving these Eliant Home Buyers’ Choice Awards is a testament to our Company’s 58 year legacy of quality and service and the outstanding dedication of our team members,” said Bill H. Lyon, CEO of William Lyon Homes. “I am most proud of the fact that these awards are spread across our various operating divisions as well as the various phases of the home buying process. This indicates a unity of purpose and consistency of performance seldom achieved.”

William Lyon Homes received five Premier Awards (1st, 2nd or 3rd Place) in key categories including The Purchase Experience, The Design Selection Experience, The Construction Experience and The First-Year Customer Service Experience.

In addition to the above categories, William Lyon Homes received Honorable Mention for “The Eliant,” the most prestigious award of the annual competition, which measures overall home purchase and ownership experience. The Company also received Honorable Mentions in six other categories including The Design Selection Experience, The Construction Experience, Overall First-Year Quality, The First-Year Customer Service Experience and Highest Percentage of Sales from Referrals.

The Eliant awards are based on homebuyer satisfaction surveys completed throughout 2013. The winning builders were chosen based on the results of more than 76,500 surveys administered to recent home purchasers from over 148 major homebuilders across the U.S. and Canada.
