Homes by WestBay racked up seven awards in the marketing, design and model merchandising categories. These included Best Virtual Tour, Best Website and a sweep of awards for Model Merchandising and Best Floor Plans.

The Key Largo III – recipient of an Aurora award, won in two categories, Best Virtual Tour and Model Merchandising for a home over 4,000 sq ft. WestBay swept this category with awards going to the Nantucket in MiraBay and the Key Largo in Watergrass. The Biscayne model in FishHawk Ranch won in the Best Floor Plan category along with the Madeira. This latter is currently under construction at Forest Glen. This win is particularly rewarding since the Madeira represents the newest floor plan designs to be offered by WestBay.
