Bayside Earns 15 Awards in 2016 Including “Community of the Year”

Fenwick Island, DE. November 7, 2016 – What an amazing year of wins for The Carl M. Freeman Companies and the Bayside Resort Community as they accept regional, state and local awards in 2016.
Bayside, a waterfront master-planned 18 hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course community just four miles from the beach, was voted “Community of the Year” by Coastal Style Magazine readers and was recognized as having the “Best Amenity Value” (for the 2nd year in a row?) by the Homebuilders’ Association of Delaware.

“The team at Bayside is having an exceptional year and we are honored to receive so many awards,” said Michelle Freeman, President and CEO of Carl M. Freeman Companies. “Our founder, Carl M. Freeman, would have been especially proud to be recognized as having the most innovative land plan for communities across MD, DC, VA and DE. From the beginning, our culture has a passion for building places that are highly livable, embracing the land and nature so that families can create life long memories.”
