55 and older communities

Traditions of America: building 55 and over communities for over 20 years

We believe residents of 55 and over communities deserve better: better locations, lifestyles, home designs and customization. In fact, they deserve a better buying experience and customer service, too! For more than twenty years, we’ve been delivering on our mission of improving the lives of active adults. Our singular focus is – and has always been – building active adult, resort-style communities. We specialize in the over 55 homebuyer and understand what they are looking for at this stage in their lives. Homes that can be customized, new best friends on every block, a fully loaded Clubhouse with A+ amenities, and a lock and leave lifestyle – these are the hot button items on everyone’s checklist.


Commitment to Quality

As a nationally-recognized homebuilder, we only offer the best to our homeowners. We care about the details, from meeting high building standards to increasing energy efficiency. However, quality goes deeper than that, and a commitment to quality and is the foundation for everything we do.

“We don’t just build… We take pride in improving the lives of our 55 and over homebuyers, one home at a time.” – TIMOTHY R. McCARTHY, Managing Partner.


A Winning Tradition

Our communities, home designs, and Clubhouses have been the proud recipients of hundreds of local and national awards. And, it’s these kinds of awards that reflect the quality of our homes and our focus on buyer satisfaction. Some of our most recent awards include:

  • Cranberry – Silver Award for Best 55 and over For Sale Community from the NAHB
  • Cranberry – Silver Award for Best 55 and over Outdoor Lifestyle Amenity from the NAHB
  • Lititz – Silver Award for Best 55 and over Lifestyle Director

Winning the 2016 Best 55 and over Builder of the Year award from the NAHB was a testament to our mission of delivering the best lifestyle communities for folks 55 and over. However, the most rewarding part is bringing the Live Better lifestyle to thousands of homebuyers every day.
