Ayersworth Glen, a master planned community in the Riverview area, is located off U.S. Highway 301, just south of Big Bend Road, and has had consistent sales since it opened in 2007. This community features a clubhouse with a fitness center and community room, bike trails, playground, sports field, and one of the largest community pools in the area. "Homeowners love it because it's country-club living at an affordable price," McDaniel said. Prices at Ayersworth Glen start in the $120,000s. For more information, call (813) 938-4810. The Greens at Hidden Creek is another Tampa area community doing well, she said. This community is located off Eiland Boulevard in Zephyrhills and has quick access to Interstate 75 and the University of South Florida campus. The community had its grand opening in May and has had several sales already. "The community is not a CDD community and offers a nice rural setting with pond and conservation views," she said. Prices start in the $140,000s. For more information, call (813) 395-8977. Highland Homes builds more than 40 floor plans, most of which include a screened, covered lanai and luxury bath, McDaniel said. "The luxury bath features a garden tub and separate shower, double vanities, and a walk-in closet in the master suite," she said. Enhanced architectural details and upgrades are throughout the home designs and Highland Homes has partnered with several brand manufacturers to offer homebuyers plenty of options, such as Whirlpool appliances, Merillat cabinets, Delta faucets, Pittsburgh paints, Armstrong flooring, Mica countertops, and several others. Homes built by Highland Homes are also equipped with new energy related features, such as 14 and 15 SEER air conditioner units and programmable thermostats. "Highland Homes has its own warranty department to provide better customer service and a personal touch that carries through from first contact at the sales center to long after the buyer moves into the home," McDaniel said. Founded in 1996, by Robert J. and Joel Adams, the vision of Highland Homes was established with a commitment to excellence and family values, she said. "The company's strong leadership and it owners' personal commitment are what the company's employees attribute to its personal success," McDaniel said. "Attitudes are contagious and when you see it in the leadership, it will automatically spread throughout the company."
