Awards & Accolades

Iowa City Area Parade of Homes Builders Excellence Awards – 2012, 2014, 2017

The Greater Iowa City Area Home Builders Association has previously awarded Builders Excellence Trophies to SouthGate Companies in 2012 and 2014 and Navigate Homes in 2017. Members of Home Builders Associations from across the state of Iowa toured various homes as part of the Annual Parade of Homes. Two to three judges evaluated each home on its exterior, interior, livability, overall flow, functionality, and interior/exterior foundation. At the end of the tour, points were tallied and a winner was determined for homes in varying price categories.

“Realtors Home for Our Future” Award – 2009

In 2009, SouthGate Companies received the “Realtors Homes for Our Future” award from the City of Iowa City and the Housing and Community Development Commission. SouthGate Companies participated in the project and built the home that was a certified “Green Home”. The home was also built with “Aging in Place” in mind, with the intent being to build a home that would allow the owners to continue living there even as they grew older and became faced with possible financial and accessibility limitations, in addition to key features of energy efficiency and accessibility.
