2016 Lifestyle Community of the Year Award

The Biltmore Lake community has been awarded the 2016 Lifestyle Community of the Year Award by the East Region of FirstService Residential.  The award was announced at the East Region Lifestyle Community Annual meeting in New Jersey in January. FirstService Residential is North America’s largest manager of residential communities and has provided management services for the Biltmore Lake community since 2014. The FirstService Residential team at Biltmore Lake includes Community Manager Bill McMannis, Assistant Manager Kim Maynard, and Lifestyle Director Karen Foley.

“‘Community’ means so much more than the lots, homes, and streets,” said Brad Galbraith, Vice President of Community development at Biltmore Farms, LLC. “Biltmore Lake embodies the community spirit in so many ways: the plethora of clubs and gatherings; trails and hiking clubs; the volunteers who give their time caring for and enhancing the community assets, environment, and Enka Lake; and the well-attended community events and activities.  All of this is curated by the incredible staff that has adopted as their mission to ensure the sustaining of the vision of Biltmore Lake as a unique place to live, share, and thrive together with neighbors and friends.  Biltmore Farms would like to congratulate the staff and residents for being honored in this way for living ‘community’ together.”

There are now over one hundred Lifestyle Communities spanning from the New Jersey Area to Charleston, South Carolina. This award is a tremendous honor for the Property Management team and residents at Biltmore Lake.

The communities are judged using many factors, including the management team’s focus on the First Service Residential’s Mission, Core Values and Global Service Standards, by delivering exceptional service and solutions that enhance the value of every property and the lifestyle of every resident in the communities that are managed.  Biltmore Lake was also chosen because of the wide range of activities and participation by all of our residents in the many activities provided by the community’s amenities, groups, clubs, and residents.

Biltmore Lake previously was the recipient of the Outstanding Community Award from the North Carolina Chapter of the Community Associations Institute for three consecutive years.
