"Being the lifestyle director for Pomona is more than just a job...co-workers become family and residents become friends. This position has brought me more joy in the last five years than I could ever imagine."
- Lori Evans, Pomona Lifestyle Director

Hillwood Communities won Gold and Silver Awards for stellar lifestyle programs within master-planned residential communities in 2020 by the prestigious National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB).

Hillwood Communities and FirstService Residential work together to create a dynamic lifestyle for the residents at five communities across Texas. This is the second consecutive year both companies were recognized by NAHB for excellence in Resident Lifestyle.

Dee Davidson, the lifestyle manager at Union Park by Hillwood, brought home the Silver Award for her lifestyle program at the Dallas-Fort Worth community. Farther south, the lifestyle manager at Pomona by Hillwood in Houston, Lori Evans, received the Silver Award for her hard work as the lifestyle director while her lifestyle program won the Gold Award for best in the category.

"It's exciting to be recognized for our collective expertise in Resident Lifestyle," says Tanya Mendenhall, vice president of developer relations for FirstService Residential. "Dee and Lori pride themselves on offering great service, and we couldn't be more proud of, or inspired by, their dedication and creativity."

"The lifestyle program helps a community thrive!" says Davidson. "Residents feel a sense of belonging. It goes beyond events and activities. The heart of the program focuses on helping neighbors connect to build lifelong relationships."

Diana Carroll, DFW marketing manager for Hillwood Communities, shared similar thoughts.

"Our residents chose Hillwood Communities because of the lifestyle these programs give them and their families. We are so pleased that the sense of community these award-winning programs and managers create give our homeowners a true connection to their neighbors that build lasting friendships."
