Johnson Development Sees Most Communities on National Report

July 23, 2018

Once again, Johnson Development Corp. has the most top-selling master-planned communities in the nation than any other developer, according to a recently released report.

The Houston-based firm had six communities ranked among the nation’s 50 top-selling in a mid-year tally by housing research firm Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO).

“Our vision for lifestyle-based communities and the strength of our dedicated staff of professionals is apparent in these results as we not only again have more top-selling communities on this national list, but most of our communities are showing year-over-year gains in new home sales,” said Doug Goff, Co-President and Chief Operating Officer of Johnson Development.

At No. 1 in Houston and No. 15 nationally, Sienna Plantation in Missouri City was the highest-ranked Johnson community on the RCLCO report. Sienna reported 292 new-home sales during the first six months of 2018, a 41 percent increase over last year. Cross Creek Ranch in Fulshear placed No. 25, with 246 sales — a 16 percent increase. And Viridian in Arlington ranked No. 26 with 240 sales versus 158 in 2017. Viridian’s 52 percent year-over-year increase was one of the biggest gains listed on the report.

However, Harmony in Spring showed the largest gain of all 50 communities, with a 72 percent increase. Harmony ranked No. 30 and reported 234 sales during the first six months of this year versus 136 in 2017. Woodforest in South Montgomery County saw 200 sales — a 9 percent increase — during the report’s timeframe and placed at No. 38. Riverstone in Fort Bend County ranked No. 41 with 189 sales.

“For years the No. 1 best-selling community in Texas and in the top 10 nationally,” Goff said. “Unfortunately, it is now nearing close-out, with fewer neighborhoods offering new homes for sale.”

In its 43rd year of development, Johnson Development has 17 communities under active development — 14 in the Houston area, two in Dallas-Fort Worth and one in Atlanta. At mid-year 2018, home sales in all Johnson communities totaled 2,171, which is an 18 percent overall increase from 2017.
