Meet Mark Roberson, the 2012 Dream Home Giveaway Winner


Talk about Cinderella stories! Out of the 1,190,734 entries we received, this year’s Dream Home Giveaway was won by Mark Roberson, a job seeking truck driver from Clarkson, Georgia, with a single entry. As the winner, Mark could choose a dream home anywhere Taylor Morrison currently builds. Attracted by the booming economy in Texas, Mark and wife Gloria chose one of our new homes in Houston, in the quiet, sociable community of Park Creek. Before they move in, they’ll be enjoying their other prize – an amazing vacation at the Disneyland® Resort. 

After considering the available floor plans, the Robersons narrowed it down to two: The Daphene and the Oakdale. Mark and Gloria are anxious to get on with their new life, so the Oakdale, which will be ready for move-in this fall, ultimately won out.  Good choice. Of all our new homes in Houston, that’s one of our most popular plans. It’s a 2-story, 4-bedroom 3.5-bath home with formal dining room, spacious kitchen, great room, game room and secluded master suite. The home offers three stunning elevation choices and lots of options like a fireplace, extended patio and extended garage. Like all our homes, it can be personalized with upgrades and options available at our Design Center.

Check out the floor plans and watch the videos to see the style and features that impressed the Robersons.
