Charlotte, NC – September 15, 2010

The 21st Century Building Expo and Conference was kicked off in style Wednesday evening with “An Evening in Venice” themed awards gala.  The STARS Awards, sponsored by the North Carolina Home Builders Association, were held Wednesday evening at the Hilton Charlotte Center City in downtown Charlotte.  Members of the local Home Builders Associations from across the state gathered to honor deserving recipients for their achievements in the last year.  There were awards for marketing, sales, merchandising, architecture, and special projects.

Zar Custom Homes, Inc., from Charlotte, was awarded the STARS award for the category “Best Single Family Detached Home with a sales price over $1Million between 5,000 and 10,000 square feet”.  Zar Custom Homes is a member of the Lake Norman Home Builders Association and the Charlotte Home Builders Association and builds in the Charlotte Metropolitan area in both NC and SC.

The overwhelming theme of the evening was “only the strong survive” as the group was continually congratulated for surviving in the current economy.  Zar Custom Homes has survived the tough economy in the last several years due to diversity, continued advertising, hard work, and customer referrals.  They are currently building new homes in Baxter Village of Fort Mill, SC and in Albemarle, NC.  Zar also builds in River Run, Providence Downs South, Lake James, Lake Norman, Lake Wylie, or on any customer’s home site.
