Awards & Accolades

Year after year, the team at Classic Homes is recognized for excellence in the new home industry in Colorado Springs and Monument, Colorado. 

“When terrific people do a quality job, paying attention to details with a customer focus, awards and accolades follow. Our mission is not to win awards and accolades but rather to win over our customers and clients. And it is safe to say when you accomplish the latter, it leads to the former.”   –Classic Homes CEO 

Since 1989, Classic Homes has broken ground all across the Pikes Peak Region, offering exciting new homes for sale in the most desirable neighborhoods up and down the Front Range. But in our 29 year history as an award-winning local business, we’ve discovered one very important thing.  It isn’t just about building a better home. Or even a better community. It’s about building a better world—for our clients, partners, and families—through hard work, honest business practices, and an unswerving dedication to excellence.

Below is a sampling of our team’s industry accolades.
