East Hanover, N.J., June 12, 2018 – Woodmont Properties of Fairfield, NJ and DaSilva Homes of Newark, NJ were top winners at the annual Awards of Excellence, presented on June 7th at the Hanover Manor in East Hanover, by the Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association of New Jersey (Metro).

The Awards of Excellence are a coveted acknowledgement in the home building industry. This year, there were 125 entries vying for awards in various categories including marketing efforts, new million-dollar homes, renovations, condominium and rental complexes, and more.

Metro also recognizes its Associates who are realtors.
