London Bay Homes Brings Home 12 Wins During CBIA’s Sand Dollar Awards

by Arelys Alexander

London Bay Homes strives to create a smooth home building process that ends with an immaculate luxury home that reflects our clients’ unique personalities and style.  It is always an honor to deliver on that promise and it is just as much an honor when industry professionals recognize the results of our refined Private Label Living process. This is why we had a wonderful time celebrating the 12 wins earned by London Bay Homes during the Collier Building Industry Association’s 2019 Sand Dollar Awards.

London Bay Homes honored with 12 awards at 2019 Sand Dollar Awards

The Sand Dollar Awards are presented each year to member builders, developers, architects, remodelers, interior design firms, landscape architects, trades and marketing, and sales and/or advertising professionals who have demonstrated building, design, and marketing excellence in Collier County.  Our luxury homes, and some of the team members that assist during the design, build, and sell process, were highlighted during the Sand Dollar Awards Gala.  The awards presented to London Bay Homes represented exceptional product, interior design, sales, and marketing for homes throughout Southwest Florida.  These include:

Private Whole House Remodel

A remodel by London Bay Renovation in Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club received the top award in the $800,001-$900,000 category for Best Whole House Remodel.  This residence was completely gutted except for the master suite, one guest bedroom, and the laundry room.  The project consisted of converting the four-bedroom, five-bath Tuscan-style residence into a timeless residence affording better flow and function, as well as an additional 500 square feet for a new guest suite.  Designers also created a new rectilinear design to reclaim the old design’s unused space, cleaning up the design and providing for an enhanced set-up for furniture.

The exterior of the home also received some changes, transforming it from a heavy Tuscan design to a clean, contemporary design with the removal of some precast elements, the lightening up of the overall color palette, and the addition of dark trim and Bermuda shutters.

Award-Winning Sales and Marketing


In addition to awards for luxury homes, London Bay Homes was also recognized for its innovative approach to marketing and advertising efforts for its Naples Collection of custom estates, model homes, and private residences from Park Shore to Port Royal. The “Authentic Moments” campaign highlighted the builder’s brand promise of “Private Label Living” and connected its meaning through a series of vignettes that artfully captured scenes of authentic moments of homeowners gathering with friends and family to create long-lasting memories in a special place called “home.” The campaign resulted in top Sand Dollar Awards for Best Magazine, Best Newspaper Ad and Best Overall Campaign.

After such a successful sales year, London Bay Homes Sales Executive Toby Cloutier also took home Sand Dollar Awards for Sales Person of the Year over $3 million and Sales Person of the Year based on highest volume of over $39 million.

With product, interior design, sales, and marketing awards, London Bay Homes continues to deliver on all aspects of the design, build, and sales process.  Visit our luxury model homes throughout Southwest Florida to see our award-winning appeal up close and personal.
