John Cannon Homes Sweeps the 2018 Parade of Homes with 5 “Best Overall” In Single Family Category

The Akarra IV, The Corindi, The Talia, The Walara and The Victoria model homes win “Best Overall” in addition to Cannon’s 27 Individual awards.

SARASOTA, FL (March 2, 2018) – Southwest Florida residential luxury custom home builder John Cannon Homes swept the competition with five “Best Overall” awards and an additional 27 awards in individual and sub-contractor categories at the 2018 Parade of Homes Ceremony held Thursday evening at The Hyatt- Sarasota.  

"We are extremely proud of the accolades we received at this year’s Parade of Homes," John Cannon, President, said, who has won over 300 Parade of Homes awards in the company's history. "We have an experienced team of employees and trade partners that have been together, some for more than 25 years, who know how to work together. Not many builders have a team in place that does it all - and as well - as we do.”

“Each award - whether it’s best kitchen, best floorplan or best master suite, for example, – tells us that our models reflect what our clients want in a residence, and, at the same time highlights recognition from our industry’s peers” he added.

Cannon explained that he feels their award-winning success for their models reflect years of listening to clients effectively, something that brings additional value to both the builder and client in the process.

Five of Cannon’s models were awarded Best Overall – The Akarra IV, The Corindi, The Talia, The Victoria and The Walara. These models also received awards in individual categories including “Best Floor Plan,” “Best Architectural Design,” “Best Kitchen.” “Best Master Suite,” “Best Curb Appeal.” In the Sub-Contractor categories, Coast to Coast Pools won for Cannon’s The Akarra IV, The Talia and The Victoria. Trent Culleny Landscaping won an award for The Corindi at The Islands. A total of 32 awards were received by the luxury custom home builder.

Coming off their impressive win last week as “Best Residential Builder”, first place in both Manatee and Venice and as finalist in Sarasota (Sarasota Herald-Tribune Reader’s Choice), the annual Parade of Homes awards, presented by the Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association, are considered by many industry leaders as the benchmark in design-build recognition.
