3 JDC Communities Rank Among Nation’s Top-Selling

It’s that time of year when lists of the nation’s top-selling communities are announced and once again, Johnson Development has multiple communities ranked among the top 50.

John Burns Real Estate Consulting places Cross Creek Ranch in Fulshear at No. 39 with 396 new homes sold during 2022. With 382 new-home sales, Woodforest in Montgomery County ranked No. 41. Sienna in Missouri City was our third community to make the Top 50 list, coming in at No. 47 with 351 new-home sales.

Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO) also tallies the nation’s top-selling communities every year. This year, Cross Creek Ranch ranked No. 40 with Woodforest at No. 42. Sienna tied for No. 49. Rankings between the two companies can be different as not all communities in the nation report to both companies. 

All three communities have been ranked among the nation’s best-selling numerous times. Cross Creek Ranch has appeared on the annual lists for 12 consecutive years, with its first appearance in 2011. Sienna also has been ranked among the nation’s top-selling master-planned communities for 12 years, debuting in 2010. Woodforest first gained national prominence in 2012 and has ranked among the nation’s best-selling communities for 10 years. 

All three communities have a broad selection of floor plans that cater to varying buyer needs, generous amenities, numerous nature areas and an engaging resident lifestyle — all facets of successful master-planned development. Fostering an environment “within which generations can live better in terms of housing and the community environment” is a differentiating feature for a resilient master-planned community, says RCLCO, as is having “flexible master plans that are environmentally sensitive, market responsive and nurture the lifestyles of their residents.” 

Both Cross Creek Ranch and Woodforest are approaching their last sections to be developed. Early last year, sales began in the final 300 acres to be developed in Cross Creek Ranch. In Woodforest, approximately 700 homesites remain. At 10,800 acres, Sienna has significant undeveloped land and is touting new neighborhoods, new amenities and new model homes for 2023.

Johnson Development has had multiple communities ranked among the nation’s top 50 for 12 consecutive years and has more communities earning a spot among the nation’s top-selling communities than any other developer since the housing research companies first started publishing the annual reports.
