“Of the 230 major home builders we evaluate across the country, McCaffrey Homes repeatedly has the highest rate of sales from customers’ referrals,” said Bob Mirman, CEO of Eliant, the nation’s largest homebuilder rating company.

“In 2023, 46.33% of McCaffrey’s homebuyers reported that they purchased on the basis of a friend’s recommendation, which is twice the national average … and they have averaged 40% for the past 15-years! With their homeowner surveys repeatedly highlighting the high quality of craftsmanship and exceptional customer service, I can easily say that McCaffrey Homes has earned the most durable reputation of any home builder we’ve worked with in over 40 years,” Mirman added. 

Bob McCaffrey, CEO of McCaffrey Homes, said being recognized with an Eliant HomeBuyers' Choice Award that’s based on customer satisfaction is gratifying and humbling. 

“Our mission has always been to deliver a high-quality home matched with an exceptional homebuying experience. This award validates our team’s efforts, “McCaffrey said. “To know that our homeowners love their McCaffrey homes enough to recommend them to their families and friends is a shining testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team.”
