Windsong Ranch announced today that it was named the People’s Choice Community of the Year at the 37th Annual McSAM Awards presented by the Dallas Builders Association (DBA).  The awards program is held each spring to recognize outstanding achievement and “maximum creativity in sales and marketing.”    More than 300 entries were received this year and winners were named in 58 categories judged by housing experts from across the country. 

“The People’s Choice Award is THE coveted award of the night because it is a customer satisfaction award that shows our success in creating the best community for our homeowners,” said Craig Martin, Founding Partner of Terra Verde Group, the developer of Windsong Ranch.  “Our residents ranked Windsong highest in overall lifestyle, amenities and customer service compared to all the other communities in DFW. 

For the People’s Choice Award, a third party research firm surveys homeowners from each community entered and residents rate their community in a variety of categories. The winner is determined by the community receiving the highest rating.

“Residents love this community and the outstanding lifestyle programming that Lauren Stephan, our lifestyle director, has implemented,” Martin said.  “It has created a very close knit, happy community and these industry awards reemphasize what an incredible development we have built.  Windsong Ranch has exceeded our expectations in every way.” 

The development has received 20 local, state and national awards in just two years including the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Award for Best Welcome Center earlier this year and the Dallas Builders Association 2015 Master Planned Community of the Year.

Windsong Ranch is being developed by Terra Verde Group.  The design team includes Good, Fulton and Farrell as architect; TBG as Master Planners and Landscape Architect; Creative License International for the Welcome Center design and interior design and Anderson Hanson Blanton as the advertising agency.

Windsong Ranch is located 2.5 miles west of the Dallas North Tollway on the north side of Highway 380 in Prosper, TX.  For more information on Windsong Ranch, please visit
