As a result, you can use your tax savings to go on a vacation, increase your child's college fund, build upon your retirement fund, or complete another home improvement project.

We are so excited to share that Rush Residential was recently awarded 2018 Builder Of The Year by MBA Pierce! The Builder Of The Year Award is based on membership voting and nominations. Additional criteria are specific to each award and Builder Of The Year nominees must be Builder Members. All nominees are submitted by other MBA members and then the Awards Committee selects a winner. Rush was up against 5 other incredible home builders, and we are honored to have been recognized among them! “What an honor it is to be recognized by our peers in the industry. We are grateful to our customers, suppliers, and partners who all work together with a common goal of helping create exceptional homes - while enabling others to achieve the American Dream of home-ownership," said Rush Residential Vice President Scott Walker. "To be selected as Builder of the Year for Pierce County is a testament to what we stand for. Our company vision is ‘Building an Exceptional Future, Together.’ It applies to all we do, and for that, we are proud and humbled that we were selected for this award and achievement.” Walker joined the Rush Residential team in 2011 and has led the division in the creation of dozens of outstanding residential communities. He has also led the Rush Residential team in our best year yet—in 2018 we oversaw the creation of 5 communities and welcomed 69 families into their beautiful new homes.
