Taylor Morrison Year in Review – 2018

by Emily on December 27th, 2018

The end of the calendar is fast approaching and it’s been a whirlwind year for Taylor Morrison. From major acquisitions to important charity work and recognition that Taylor Morrison is as good to our employees as we are to our homeowners – we’ve been busy!

To get you up to speed on the most important happenings from the past 12 months, here’s a quick rundown of our most exciting news.

Thanks again for being part of the growing Taylor Morrison family. We look forward to growing our relationship in 2019 and beyond.

January – And the award goes to…

Kicking the year off with a bang, we were thrilled to learn on January 19th that we’d once again been awarded the distinction of America’s Most Trusted Home Builder three years in a row! Not too shabby.

We work hard to see to it that the most important home we can build is yours and it feels good to know our efforts are not going unnoticed. Fingers crossed that we win again in 2019.

February – A ‘model’ place to work…

Relationships. Trust. Building a better future for tomorrow. For our team, for our customers, for our country. That’s our vision – and it shines through in our company culture. A shared commitment to making work meaningful.

In February, we were honored to receive the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award as one of the 100 Best Places to Work in the country. Work/life balance matters to us. From health & wellness to community involvement and giving back.

myModel Home Project

At the core of our design philosophy is the desire to craft beautiful home interiors inspired by the people who live in them. What better way to understand the mind of our homeowners than to get them involved in the design process.

The myModel Home Project was not only a huge success. It was a heckuva lot of fun, too!

March – Live your Tradebark…

Raise your paw if you love animals?

We do.

In March, the Sacramento division expanded their partnership with the SPCA in the Sacramento real estate market to find Fur’ever homes for dozens of shelter animals.

See how we helped home senior pets in need by covering all adoption fees and learn more about our GIANT 64 square foot dog bed! Nope, that’s not a typo.

Taylor Morrison understands that not all family members walk on two legs. That’s why many of our new build homes come with the option for pet-friendly features:

  • Pet-friendly tile, laminate & hardwood flooring.
  • Dedicated dog washing station 🙂
  • Dog parks.
  • Walking trails.
  • Dog house.
  • Doggie concierge service available at many Esplanade branded new home communities in Florida.

June – Great leaders inspire greatness in others…

Building a company to be proud of starts at the top – and when it comes to inspiring leadership, Taylor Morrison Homes hit the jackpot.

In June, Glassdoor released their list of Top CEOs as voted by employees and our own Sheryl Palmer came in at #19. 19th in the country sounds impressive on its own but the distinction really takes shape when you consider that 770,000 companies were in the running!

Hats off to Sheryl for everything she does to guide Taylor Morrison – and congratulations on being just one of three females to crack the top 20.

July – Sharing ideas…

What’s the most effective way to understand what America’s homeowners value most in their new home buying experience? How about organizing and hosting a meeting of the minds inviting the country’s top performing real estate agents?

In July, we did just that with a real estate summit at the Intercontinental Buckhead in Atlanta.

Working with the real estate professionals who serve our communities is part of building the best homes possible for our customers and the conference was an enormous success.

October – Welcome to the team…

More home designs and more entry-level priced new homes in growing markets. That’s what Taylor Morrison acquired with the merging of AV Homes into the Taylor Morrison umbrella.

With nearly 50 years of experience building new homes in Florida, The Carolinas, Arizona and Texas, AV Homes is the perfect fit to join our family. As a bonus, many of the AV Homes developments are perfect fits for Taylor Morrison’s 55+ Lifestyle Communities.

November – Matching new build homes to people…

Paralysis by analysis can be a real thing. Especially when it comes to choosing the right floor plan and the right new home community to suit your family. Choice is great but sometimes too much choice can be overwhelming.

In November, we launched an exciting new tool to help our homebuyers identify the right floor plan faster and easier. It’s called Spectacular Spaces and the way it works is simple. You answer 10 quick questions and the tool kicks out a list of homes perfectly suited to fit your lifestyle and needs.

Sound easy? It is. Give it a try.

December – Furry & festive…

More animal rescue fun with the Sacramento SPCA! The ultimate gift for the festive season is a new best friend and our 2nd Annual Home for the Holidays event meant there will be plenty of smiles and wagging tails around the tree this year.

Make 2019 Your Year to Experience the Taylor Morrison Difference
