The Rio Grande Valley Builders Association will again host its annual Fishing Tournament on South Padre Island, Saturday, June 22, for members.
Some of the area’s finest builders presented 31 homes in a variety of sizes and architectural styles throughout the upper #RGV. These were the top winners of the 2019 #ParadeOfHomes competition.
The BUILT TO SAVE™ program is one available to builders that provides homebuyers the proof they need to know that their home was quality-built and is guaranteed to be more energy efficient than a similar home built only to current national code.
This company has found the perfect combination of beauty and energy efficiency in their winning entry for Most Energy Efficient Home. To date, Villanueva Construction is the Valley’s leading energy efficient builder. They’ve certified the highest number of homes in the BUILT TO SAVE™ program in 2017 and 2018—and are on track to receive the award again at the end of 2019.
With six top awards including the 2019 Best of Show, this Waldo Homes Mediterranean-style home is truly outstanding. A spectacular two-story high entry, an open marble staircase with custom hand wrought iron, and glistening porcelain flooring first greet the eye. Throughout the home, custom designer touches abound, making this house a real showstopper.
Awash with stunning bursts of design, this Villanueva Construction home took the honors of Best Home in its category. Hard to imagine such a wonderfully attainable price could have such exceptional and sophisticated details. Especially noticeable: the open floorplan living area with its eye-popping coffered tray ceiling, decorator niches, and custom kitchen island.
Throughout this incredible home, there are soaring designer ceilings, ornamental niches and stonework, and wrought iron accents. Dark powerful colors of woodwork and ironwork are a stunning contrast to the sparkling flooring, and both come together to highlight this Spanish-style home—pure opulence worthy of the award for Best Model they recently received.
One look at Treviño Construction’s entry, and you can see why it took the award for Best Home in its category. This magnificent Mediterranean-style home offers jaw-dropping designs throughout, from unique black and white porcelain flooring, to extremely intricate coffered ceilings, to custom created cabinetry, and even to distinctively designed walls.
Framework Homes puts the ‘model’ in model homes with their entry that captured the Best Model award in its category. It exudes that South Texas hospitality with its open concept living and large family dining area. The dark wood-look plank flooring and warm honey granite countertops throughout add to the cozy home feeling.
Light, airy, and totally impressive, this Innovative Construction home received a well-deserved Best Model award. The open concept living/dining/kitchen area is original and, well, totally innovative. The clean lines of the contemporary exterior and the family-oriented backyard, as well as the luxurious touches throughout, add to the perfection of this home.
Dynasty Custom Homes packs a powerful punch in this award-winning home. It reflects open concept living at its finest with a delightfully affordable price. Designer touches abound with creamy porcelain floors, quartz countertops, stainless appliances, clerestory windows, and decorative tray ceilings.
Dynasty Custom Homes has certainly put the Pizzazz in their winning entry for the 2019 Parade of Homes. Throughout the home, Dynasty utilizes beautiful white marble porcelain, high ceilings that have elegant tray designs with recessed lighting, lavish picture windows to bring the outdoors in, and a convivial open floorplan.
It’s well known that buying a home is most likely the largest single investment we will make in our lifetime. That said, it makes sense that we should have a well thought-out plan to make sure we make the best decision that’s right for us. Here are some important points to remember.
The Rio Grande Valley Builders Association was pleased to present the 2019 Parade of Homes event. This year’s lineup included 31 of some of the Valley’s most beautiful homes built by the Association’s builder members.

Your kitchen’s look should reflect you and your personal style. Thankfully, there are numerous ways that your builder can customize today’s design trends to suit your own tastes and styles.
