The judges for the 2018 Rio Grande Valley Builders Association’s Parade of Homes competition traveled from Corpus Christi and Victoria, Texas, to review and rate this year’s 27 participating homes. The judges were escorted from home to home on the first two days of the Parade (April 28 and 29) by Marcy Alamia (RGVBA Executive VP) and Mike Duffey (Builders FirstSource).

The panel of judges had a good understanding of the building industry with the majority of their experience being in residential construction and design. Among the Judges were John Pope of Newcastle Homes, a distinguished builder in Corpus Christi and Padre Island with a reputation for building some of the most energy efficient homes in his market; Diana and Trey Summers of Hogan Homes, a well-established builder servicing the Coastal Bend area for over 52 years; and Sarah Rivera and Brian Ferguson of Kimberlite Homes from Victoria, whose company is relatively new (2014), but has quickly earned a reputation for quality and value.
