Congratulations to Epcon’s 2017 Guildmaster Award winners!


Every year, GuildQuality recognizes exceptional homebuilder performance, by presenting an award to those companies that have demonstrated a consistently superior experience for their customers. We’re pleased to announce that two Epcon franchise builders have been honored with the 2017 Guildmaster Award: Scarmazzi Homes and Cornerstone Development.

The GuildQuality Guildmaster Awards are given each year to builders, remodelers, and contractors who have received a 90% recommendation rate from the last 20 customers surveyed by GuildQuality.

Scarmazzi Homes was founded by Paul and Lisa Scarmazzi in 1999. They became an Epcon Franchise Builder in 2001. Scarmazzi Homes maintains a 5-star rating on the GuildQuality website, with 96% of their surveyed customers saying they would recommend the Pennsylvania-based builder. Since they joined with Epcon, Paul and Lisa Scarmazzi have built more than 500 homes throughout the Pittsburgh region.

Cornerstone Development is no stranger to awards. Their Epcon community, The Glen at Seven Stones received the 2015 Metropolitan Builders Association’s Achievement Award for Best Development of the Year. Cornerstone Development’s owner John Wahlen is currently developing four Epcon Communities in Wisconsin: The Glen at Cedar Creek, The Glen at Oconomowoc, The Glen of Mukwonago, and The Glen of Greenfield.

“John, Paul, and Lisa reflect the caliber of Franchise Builders we work with,” explains Ed Bacome, Epcon Communities’ co-founder. “Their energy, commitment, and innovative ideas not only benefit their homebuyers, but Epcon as well.”

We look forward to seeing more Epcon Communities Franchise Builders represented in the Guildmaster Awards in the future!
