BASKING RIDGE, N.J. — A luxury rental-home community built by Livingston-based BNE Real Estate Group took home top honors at this year’s Awards of Excellence, presented last night at the Dolce Hotel in Basking Ridge by the Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association of New Jersey.

Metro is the local chapter of the National Association of Home Builders.  The Awards are a coveted acknowledgement by others in the industry of a job well-done. This year, there were 166 entries vying for awards commending everything from marketing efforts to new million-dollar homes and renovations to entire condominium or rental complexes.

Just over the Bergen County border into Pearl River, N.Y., BNE’s The Club at Pearl River describes itself as a gated, resort-style rental community for adults ages 55 and better. It offers one- and two-bedroom apartments with a variety of amenities.

Winning the Grand Community of Year Award requires a community to demonstrate excellence in a variety of areas. BNE’s The Club at Pearl River also won Best Color Ad for a Community, Best Direct Mail Piece for a Community using Print, Best Community Model Home in Rental Housing Over $2,500 per Month, Best Accessory Building and Best Rental Community Over $2,500.  It also won Adult Community of Year. Pace Advertising won Best Creative Marketing Support in Marketing & Branding for the work it did for The Club at Pearl River.  And BNE salesperson Allegra Maglio won Rookie of the Year.

Other big winners last night included PulteGroup, for Best Attached-Home Community for Kensington Square; Woodmont Properties for Best Rental Community for Woodmont West at Mt. Arlington; and Falcon Companies for Best Single-Family Home in a Community with Fewer than 25 Homes for Estates at Falcon Point.

Metro’s remodelers also were recognized.  Hoffmann Design Build Inc. won awards for Best Historic Residential Renovation, Best Remodeled Kitchen, Best Remodeled Bathroom and Best Residential Addition or Alteration over $750,000. Awards for Best Commercial Renovation went to Vision Construction Services for the POE Yoga Studio and to Bossart Builders for the Old Toshiba Building.
