Neal Communities recognized with award for long-standing relationship

Neal Communities (, the area’s largest and most established, locally owned and operated private builder, was recognized with an award for its long-standing relationship with SunTrust.

A client since 1991, the Florida homebuilder has achieved sustainable and significant growth during its 25-year relationship with SunTrust. That growth began with smart decisions during a downturn and Neal Communities’ commitment to its customers.

“It is very unusual to stay committed to a financial institution for so long, but when it comes to SunTrust Bank, our firms share many of the same values, including community stewardship, financial stability and integrity,” said Pat Neal, CEO and chairman of the board at Neal Communities. “We are extremely honored to be recognized for our continued relationship with this wonderful organization.”

Neal accepted the award at a ceremony on Nov. 28 at University Park Country Club.

“The SunTrust approach, which is build your community and build your bank, is and has always been focused on developing a community that we all want to thrive,” said Gregg Anderson, the SunTrust relationship manager for Neal Communities since 2012. “Neal Communities, with their values, supports that same idea.”

To date, Neal Communities has built over 12,000 homes in southwest Florida. In 2015, the homebuilder was named the national 2015 Builder of the Year by Professional Builder.
