The Tribute Lakeside Golf and Resort Community Announces 2013 Realtor Advisory Board

(The Colony, TX—January 30, 2013) The Tribute – a 1,613 acre master planned community on a peninsula of Lake Lewisville – announced its 2013 Realtor Advisory Board today.

The Tribute Realtor Advisory Board is a prestigious group of 33 professionals considered to be among the most elite Realtors in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The Board provides invaluable insight and advises the community’s development team in product design, amenity offerings, agent communications, marketing programs and more. Matthews Southwest, the developer behind The Tribute, and The Tribute builder teams hand select the advisory board each year based on loyalty, consistency, creativity and overall sales activity in The Tribute, as well as their overall sales volume in the local area.

“Realtors are such an integral part of new home sales, particularly for a master planned community of the scope of The Tribute,” said Jack Matthews, President of Matthews Southwest. “We truly appreciate those Realtors who support The Tribute. The Advisory Board is not only our way of gaining valuable feedback from those who know us best, but also our way of saying ‘thank you’ for championing our vision.”

2012 was the best year yet for The Tribute, with 91 new home sales thanks largely to the support and encouragement of local Realtors. As area growth and improvements in the economy entice more buyers to the community, home sales continue to surge in 2013.

“I am so excited about getting back in the swing of things with the Advisory Board,” said Kay Cheek, a top agent with Ebby Halliday in Frisco. “There is always great shared information. Our goal as top agents is to work together to make The Tribute even more successful! I just closed another home in the community and my buyers are so excited. They are shining their golf clubs as we speak!”

In addition to the community’s convenient location, near the Dallas North Tollway and the 121 corridor, The Tribute features a friendly neighborhood atmosphere and resort lifestyle including two award-winning golf courses, a resort-style pool, a water spray park, playground, hike & bike trail, and more than 600 acres of park and recreational space. The community recently hosted a groundbreaking for the public/private collaboration of the new Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail – a 2.5 mile hike & bike trail through U.S. Army Corps of Engineer property for spectacular views of natural habitats as well as a scenic overlook and access to Lake Lewisville. Located in the “Recognized” Little Elm ISD with an “Exemplary” elementary, the community is also excited to announce a new K-8 STEM academy opening the fall of 2015.

American Legend Homes, Belclaire Homes, Grand Homes, Highland Homes, and Sanders Custom Builder feature a vast design variety in The Tribute from the $270s – $1 million+ including picturesque lake, waterway, common area and golf course views.

While The Tribute is located on a quiet and secluded lake peninsula, it is only minutes from the best that Dallas has to offer. Both DFWAirport and The Galleria are only 25 minutes away, LegacyBusinessPark a 15-minute drive and access to the 121 Tollroad is only 10 minutes from the community.
