Lita Dirks & Co’s Work Earns Silver in NAHB’s The Best of 55+ Housing Awards

LD & Co is delighted to receive a Silver award for Best Interior Merchandising for the Portico model in the Domani Courtyards community. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Best of 55+ Awards honor excellence in the 55+ housing industry. Categories include marketing, sales, interior merchandising, architectural, and builder awards.

Located in the vibrant community of Ames, IA, Domani Courtyards offers buyers a unique living opportunity. The Portico model is a modern, sophisticated farmhouse with upscale features and pristine finishes throughout. The private courtyard and abundant access to green space make the home and community highly desirable.

“Working with Keith was an absolute delight,” states Lita Dirks, owner and principal of Lita Dirks & Co when describing Keith Arneson, owner of Pinnacle Properties, the Domani Courtyards builder. Ms. Dirks goes on to say, “This was his first time building this type of product and to help a builder go from initial exposure to a national award is incredibly rewarding. Together, we were able to create an exceptional model home that resulted in unprecedented sales.”

Keith is elated with the success of the project and thoroughly enjoyed working with the LD & Co team. Mr. Arneson sums it up nicely, “When you surround yourself with talented people, good things always happen.”

Silver award winners are the top vote recipients in each category and are the finalists for the Gold award.
