The Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council congratulates Newland Communities for winning a Gold OBIE for Community of the Year- Master Planned in the special category for Sterling on the Lake in Flowery Branch. The OBIE awards are the highest honor given to Atlanta real estate.

Sterling on the Lake is a thoughtfully designed lakeside community. The community’s location is perfect for shopping, dining and local entertainment including Lake Lanier Islands, The Gwinnett Braves and Chateau Elan. During the market’s downturn, Sterling has improved the community in numerous ways including adding new unplanned amenities. The product mix is perfect for first-time homebuyers all the way up  to retiree buyers with numerous events year-round including a balloon festival which attracts more than 6,000 people. All of this and more is why Sterling on the Lake is a two time community of the year winner!
