Every year, the Avid® Awards honor North American homebuilders who receive top scores from their customers on comprehensive surveys of the homebuying experience. The Avid® Cup Award is the chief honor, issued to the homebuilder with the highest overall customer satisfaction rating in the US and Canada.

That's why we strive to create a positive customer experience during each and every step of the homebuying process," said Leslie Muñoz, director of national sales operations at Richmond American Homes.
