Cresswind Charlotte Construction Manager of the Year – Stephanie Correll

Stephanie Correll has been in the industry for nine years and is a proud member of the Kolter Homes Construction team. For her, the most rewarding part is handing the home over to the buyer and seeing how happy they are, and it shows. “Whether it is your first home build or your 100th, they are all equally important,” adds Correll.

Top Salesperson – Frankie Franklin

This is the fourth year in a row for Donna “Frankie” Franklin to earn Top New Home Salesperson of the Year honors from the Home Builders Association of Greater Charlotte.

As an SRES® certified senior specialist, she addresses financial and emotional challenges when seniors sell long-held family homes.

“The MAME Awards recognize the best of the best. Each year they conclude by presenting significant achievements in market excellence within the home building industry. To say we are excited about these awards is an understatement,” said McLendon.
