The Central Oregon Builders’ Association (COBA) honored Brooks Resources Corporation, a Bend, Oregon real estate company, as “2010 Developer of the Year” at its annual Awards of Excellence gala yesterday. The award was based on several criteria, including commitment to excellence, being a leader in sustainable development, and for involvement with COBA and the industry in general.
“We appreciate COBA’s support and recognition of our development efforts in our community,” said Romy Mortensen, vice president of sales and marketing for Brooks Resources Corporation. “It is important to us to continue to maintain our development standards of excellence despite the recent economic challenges. We thank COBA and the community for their on-going support and vote of confidence.”
Along with the development of premier neighborhoods that meet the needs of a diverse population, Brooks Resources Corporation takes special care to conserve natural surroundings around home sites and encourage positive, sustainable community growth. As a development partner in communities like NorthWest Crossing, the company’s commitment to green practices has been honored with recognition from the Urban Land Institute, the National Association of Home Builders, the National Commercial Builders Council, and several national publications.
The COBA award annually is presented to the developer that has distinguished itself in three categories: Association and Membership Activities, Industry Accomplishment and Civic Activities. COBA is a non-profit trade association consisting of builders, subcontractors, material suppliers, lending institutions, utilities and many others whose primary interests are the promotion, protection and improvement of the building industry.
