Also congratulations to Michael P. Nieri, Owner and Founder of Great Southern Homes as he was named the BIA’s Richard N. Sendler award winner. This award is voted on by past presidents and associate vice presidents of the BIA and the recipient must project a community image that adds stature to the association, exemplify standards promoted and supported by the association, institute innovative and creative ideas that have improved the housing industry and have unquestionable character and integrity.
