Johnson Development leads the greater Houston area real estate market as its most active residential developer, according to a list released recently by the Houston Business Journal.
The venerable company had the most number of homesites developed in Houston between October 2016 and September 2017 of any other firm. Johnson’s 2,714 new homesites topped its nearest competitor by approximately 20 percent.
“It’s been a busy year with sales starting in our 14th Houston community and five of our developments in the Houston area listed among the nation’s 50 best-selling communities,” said Doug Goff, President and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson Development.
The 590-acre Veranda community in Richmond saw home sales starting and welcomed its first model homes in the spring. Johnson Development’s Harvest Green — also in Richmond — debuted on the nation’s top-selling community list compiled by Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO) this year. Also qualifying for the list were Riverstone, ranked No. 1 in Houston; Cross Creek Ranch in Fulshear; Sienna Plantation in Missouri City; and Woodforest in South Montgomery County.
Rounding out Johnson Development’s active Houston communities are Edgewater in Webster, Fall Creek in Humble, Grand Central Park in Conroe, Harmony in Spring, Imperial in Sugar Land, Jordan Ranch in Fulshear, Tuscan Lakes in League City and Willow Creek Farms in Brookshire.
“Several of our communities also grew considerably, adding new neighborhoods, builders and available homes as we worked to meet the needs of people searching for distinctive homes in lifestyle communities,” Goff said.
“The Houston economy remains one of the nation’s strongest, gaining nearly 50,000 new jobs over last year, and the housing market is equally as strong, with housing starts also up from 2016. Johnson Development is ready for the influx of people who continue to relocate here and the families who want to stay in this dynamic region.”
Johnson Development also has one community in Atlanta — Lake Arrowhead — and two in Dallas-Fort Worth — Trinity Falls in McKinney and Arlington’s Viridian, which was also ranked among the nation’s 50 top-selling communities in the RCLCO report.
