The Tribute Wins Coveted People’s Choice Community of the Year Award from the Dallas Builders Association for Second Year in a Row

(April 22, 2019—The Colony, Texas)  They did it again. Matthews Southwest announced today that The Tribute Lakeside Golf & Resort Community once again received the coveted People’s Choice Award for the second year in a row at the 40th Annual McSAM Awards presented by the Dallas Builders Association (DBA). The awards program is held each spring to recognize outstanding achievement and maximum creativity in sales and marketing.

“For our residents to choose The Tribute as Community of the Year for two years running speaks volumes,” said Kathy Cunningham, vice president of Matthews Southwest, the developer of The Tribute. “We are thrilled to serve our homeowners with a distinctive lifestyle and unmatched natural amenities. It really is the highest honor to be recognized for what we do best– satisfying our homeowners.”

The People’s Choice Award was based on a survey sent by a third-party research group to the community’s residents. The Tribute competed against some of the top master-planned communities in DFW. Nearly 400 award entries were received this year and winners were named in 67 categories judged by housing experts from across the country.

The Tribute also won McSAM Awards for Marketing Director of the Year (Mary Day) and Best Special Event/Promotion (Realtor/Brokers).

The Tribute is located along Lebanon Road on a peninsula overlooking Lake Lewisville in The Colony. It is easily accessible to Frisco and the booming Legacy West area via Lebanon Road and Legacy Drive.

Lifestyle amenities include two 18-hole golf courses, The Tribute Golf Links and Old American Golf Club, both developed by Matthews Southwest. The lakeside lifestyle also includes over 10 miles of nature trails, a resort pool, kid’s splash park, a robust lifestyle events program, and more. Last year, Taylor Morrison opened its private clubhouse and resort pool for residents of the Waterford Point village in The Tribute. Additional community amenities include the Lakeside Pool, a new infinity edge pool overlooking Lake Lewisville, which will open this summer. A planned marina and park will also add to a stellar amenity lineup. The onsite Prestwick K-8 STEM Academy currently provides elementary and middle school education within the community. Little Elm ISD will open its new middle school in the fall of 2020 and the STEM Academy will convert to a K-5 at that time.

Matthews Southwest first opened The Tribute Golf Links in 2000, followed by single-family home sales beginning in 2007. Buildout plans call for more than 2,000 single-family homes, ranging from the mid $300,000s-$1 million+. The community also has plans for future townhomes and condominiums as well as a Town Center.
