2014 Builder of the Year


Ralph Pistone

We are proud to announce that the Building Industry Association of Southern California LA Ventura Chapter recently honored Ralph Pistone and Pardee Homes’ LA/ Ventura Team, naming them 2014 Builder of the Year.

This prestigious award recognizes outstanding members of the homebuilding profession who have demonstrated significant credit to the homebuilding industry through their exceptional work as a builder, their service to the chapter and their commitment to the communities in which they build.

The outstanding leadership of Ralph Pistone, 37-year Pardee veteran and VP of construction operations for the LA/Ventura region, has been instrumental in the team’s success. Ralph’s tough but caring management style, the extreme quality standards he demands and the love he has for his team have inspired great work for decades.

This video was shown at the BIA awards event, to share a glimpse into the teamwork behind the Builder of the Year award.

Some of the team’s many achievements include building the first neighborhood in California to earn the National Green Building Standard Gold Certification, LivingSmart® Homes at Fair Oaks Ranch®, and completing a seven-day build in one of the worst rainstorms in local history on ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition.

Ralph credits his company for the Builder of the Year accolades. “With Pardee, I have had the opportunity to work alongside some of the brightest, most caring and most dedicated individuals in the industry,” he said. “I have learned and benefited from so many people that I cannot begin to name them all—but they know who they are, and I hope they see this story as part of my thanks to them.”
