Waldo Homes, for many years, has consistently won awards in the annual RGV Parade of Homes, and this year is no different. Two Waldo Homes entries secured three top honors: “Best Home: $251K-300K”; “Best Home: $451K-500K”; and “Most Energy Efficient Home.”

Their first winning entry, awarded “Best Home: $251K-300K,” has a contemporary Farmhouse exterior. Red brick is combined with light cream stone, deep brown accents, and an oversized dark iron and glass front door. The interior blends beige brick accent walls, dark beamed cathedral ceilings, and brown ceramic wood plank tile flooring with contemporary touches of pale cream cabinetry and polygon clerestory windows.

Waldo Homes’ second entry was awarded both “Best Home: $451K-500K” and “Most Energy Efficient Home.” This Spanish Mediterranean home with red clay barrel tile roof, Chicago brick, Cantera stone, royal blue cupola, and massive custom wrought iron and glass front door is a triumph of design. The interior as well reveals quality and originality. It sparkles with whites and creams, marble and Cantera, crystal and gold. With its energy efficiency rating, this home is a true winner.

With its Parade of Homes entries, Waldo Homes continues to astonish and impress. The 2021 Parade dates did not allow the company enough time to build a larger home that it usually enters into such events—the kind that won them the “People’s Choice” and back-to-back “Best of Show” awards in the past two years.

So, this year, they pivoted to compete with smaller homes in two of the lesser-priced categories and won First Place in each of them. And, most distinguishing, out of all 21 homes in the Parade, one of Waldo’s BUILT TO SAVE® homes won the “Most Energy Efficient Home” award—a huge testament to the superior energy efficiency of a Waldo home and its energy saving high performance.

Parade of Homes visitors familiar with Waldo Homes and how their homes can impress the soul were not disappointed. Despite being smaller in size than Waldo’s typical Parade entries, the homes were tremendously impressive and, not surprisingly, projected the Waldo “wow factor”: the architectural beauty of the exteriors, the unique and stylish interior design, and the exotic and eye-catching luxury of the finishing details.

With close to two dozen Parade of Homes awards to date, Waldo Homes can, without a doubt, truly be called an “award-winning builder.” But what gives the company the most satisfaction is winning the hearts of customers. While others may try to copy and build a home that fakes the  Waldo look, the part of the company that cannot be duplicated is the Waldo team’s genuine and kind nature of treating their customers as they themselves would like to be treated.
