“We have a long history of effectively navigating ups and downs—and emerging a stronger, more creative company with every market cycle.”
–Mike McGee, President and CEO
Founded in 1921, Pardee Homes is a company that takes pride in their great locations, quality construction, community partnerships, and industry-leading green and safe building practices. With several offices in Southern California and Nevada, Pardee Homes is no stranger to building energy-efficient homes that exceed both state and federal standards; they have been ahead of the green game since 1998.
At that time, Pardee Homes debuted the first ENERGY STAR® neighborhood. In 2001, they really kicked into high gear with their LivingSmart® Homes concepts. In May 2011, Pardee Homes became California’s first production homebuilder to commit to getting an entire community of homes certified to the NGBS by the NAHB.
Pardee created a brand in LivingSmart® for their green building efforts at a time when there weren’t many options to certify or differentiate a green builder from a non-green builder. LivingSmart® Homes consists of four main concepts: HealthSmart™, EnergySmart™, EarthSmart™, and WaterSmart™.
Included features under each of these umbrellas span from low-formaldehyde attic insulation and 13-SEER HVAC systems to Delta WaterSense® faucets and engineered wood. The optional features really impress though, offering the potential for SunPower® solar electric power systems, GE ENERGY STAR® appliances, central vacuum systems, and reverse osmosis water systems.
Pardee Homes has won a multitude of awards over the last two decades for their environmentally-friendly building efforts like the 2013 NGBS Green Partner of Excellence. They’ve also won the NAHB Green Building Corporate Advocate of the Year, and numerous other awards for green and sustainable building practices and grassroots activities that aim to help transform the homebuilding industry.
Green building isn’t their only winning effort. Pardee brought home San Diego’s Best New Home Builder for 2015, the Hearthstone Builder Humanitarian Award for a lifetime commitment to philanthropy, and too many others to recount individually.
That could explain the hundreds of people that showed up this past month for the grand opening of Flagstone in Beaumont, the new single-family home neighborhood by Pardee Homes in master-planned Sundance. “The grand opening was a huge success generating tons of interest in this outstanding collection of single-family detached homes,” said Matt Sauls, vice president of marketing and product development for Pardee Homes.
Designed for changing family needs, the Plan 3 home is available with Pardee’s innovative GenSmart™ Suite. The GenSmart™ Suite—with a separate entrance and spaces for living, sleeping, and eating—is an option that creates new standards in how to ‘house’ family and friends for short visits or extended living arrangements. Part of DesignSmart, the GenSmart™ Suite is just one of the ways in which Pardee Homes is ahead of the curve yet again, embracing the future before it’s here.
This kind of innovation and standard-setting is in Pardee Homes’ DNA. “One of Pardee Homes’ greatest competitive strengths is our ability to swiftly and decisively respond to market changes and to the buyers’ needs,” said Mike McGee, President and CEO. “We have a long history of effectively navigating ups and downs—and emerging a stronger, more creative company with every market cycle.”
