The 2014 Inaugural Silver Nugget Awards program is hosted by The Las Vegas Review-Journal, in partnership with the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association. Winners were chosen from 43 categories covering, architecture, interior design, floor plans and sales and marketing.
Warmington’s Northern Terrace in Las Vegas was a finalist in two categories. In addition to Raymond Eng’s nomination and win in the Sales Person of the Year-Under $249,000 category, Warmington’s Northern Terrace also was a finalist in the Advertising category for its 2013 Campaign: Chalk It Up to the Season!
Chalk it up to the Season! is a clever and friendly campaign designed to elevate the awareness, increase sales and traffic at Warmington at Northern Terrace during what was expected to be an uptick in the traditionally solid fall season in Las Vegas which starts with Back-To-School season in August and runs through the Fall Harvest Season.
“Peer-to-peer recognition similar to the Oscars, Emmys and Grammys, is an important benchmark for industry professionals to showcase their hard work and innovation,” said one of the judges. “Recognition of the excellence in the homebuilding industry that the Silver Nugget Awards provides is an important tool consumers can use to compare new homes from resales and also compare builders, plans and features offered when determining value.”
The Southern Nevada Home Builders Association installed its 2012 slate of officers and directors during the installation and awards luncheon Thursday (December 8th) at the Four Seasons Hotel. CAMCO and Southwest Gas Corp. were co-sponsors of the event.

I have never heard any disagreement on that point, although, admittedly, the people in agreement live in San Diego County. Another point we agree on: it is pretty expensive to live in San Diego County…especially when it comes to buying a home!
All segments of the economy have experienced ups and downs (mostly downs) in the past couple of years…but things are looking up. The good news for buyers is that the downturn has made homes in San Diego County affordable again!
With mortgage interest rates at historic lows, and home prices steadying, it’s the perfect time to buy, and I can tell you where your hard-earned dollar will stretch farther than almost anyplace else in San Diego…Edgehill Terrace in Vista.
Our lot sizes average just over a half-acre, with an average of 30 feet between neighbors on each side. Some lots have a casita/granny-flat. Got toys? Some lots will accommodate your boat or RV. Every home has either a 3-car garage or a 4-car garage.
Our floorplans are fantastic! Our 1-story house is 2,836 square feet, designed for function, but looks & feels luxurious with 10’ ceilings, a 2-sided fireplace and over-sized sliding French doors leading to the back yard. Our 2-story home is great for families, with 3,159 square feet, up to 5 bedrooms, a spacious family room and a bonus room.
Where else can you find all these wonderful amenities in new construction? And, where can you find a community like this with prices starting at $550,900?
