Pulse of the City News, in conjunction with The Stirling Center for Excellence, has published the 2014 Star Award Winners on its website — those “Stars” that have provided a high-quality customer experience.

Pulse of the City News has announced that the 2014 Pulse of the City News Star Award Winners have been posted and can be viewed on its website (

As a service to industry professionals responsible for hiring building and construction companies for new projects, Pulse of the City News performs independent research on an annual basis to find and recognize those companies that provide more than just great design and construction services, but also a great customer experience.

The Pulse of the City News research team accepts public and industry nominations and also scours multiple sources, considering reviews, blogs, websites, awards and more to put together a balanced rating for each company. The Star Award is reserved for those earning the highest ratings of 4 to 5 stars.

“Our research is based on a database compiled for more than five years in order to look at more than just a company’s current performance or simply the latest thing they’ve done, or the latest review that has been posted somewhere. We have a twofold purpose for publishing our independent research. One is to identify those companies providing excellent customer service, and honor their efforts. The other is to provide companies in the industry a database where they can search for ‘Stars’ to hire for future projects,” says Pulse of the City News Editor Jamie Rawcliffe.

"We are so grateful to have found Sandcastle Homes! They’ve made the home-buying process so much easier and more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They are responsive, respectful, and always put the customer first. We truly appreciate the speed and accuracy with which they’ve addressed any concerns we’ve brought up throughout the process and can’t wait to officially own our first home. Sandcastle has a team that clearly values one another as much as they do their customers, and you can feel a sense of community when working with them."

"Sandcastle did an amazing job with my house. They came through on everything they promised. Jose Salas, the construction manager, is very helpful even after we closed on the house. He goes above and beyond. Getting to meet the owner, Salomon, during the closing was a great experience as many other builders don’t do this. We love our house and the quality of it!!"

Enrique and Judith

"We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house."

Andres and Marcela

"I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder."
