Who We Are

Building the Best in 55+

Certain things bear repeating. 55+ is all we do. With over 6,000 homes sold, our singular focus is – and has always been – improving the lives of 55+ homebuyers. Our communities are crafted to maximize the Live Better lifestyle. We achieve this by delivering superior home value and resort-style amenities in the BEST  locations. Gorgeous clubhouses with built-in social calendars are the hallmarks of every Traditions of America community. Couple that with low-maintenance homes, and you have the foundation for truly Living Better. We have the leadership, the vision and the financial strength to deliver the best in 55+ living.

There’s a reason we are the 2022 National 55+ Builder of the Year, the highest honor awarded by the National Association of Home Builders. We are proud to be recognized for being the best at what we do. Traditions of America is a two-time honoree, having also won the national 55+ Best Builder award in 2016.
