Newland CommunitiesThe Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council congratulates Newland Communities for winning a Gold OBIE in the Best Advertising Campaign-Builder Budget Over $10,000 category for Sterling on the Lake in Hall County. The OBIE awards are the highest honor given to Atlanta new homes.

The goal of the advertising campaign was to create a presale interest for the new “The Springs” neighborhood and its homes prior to the official launch. The campaign generated awareness of the age targeted nature of the new neighborhood homes, while driving traffic to the information center and motivating and engaging Realtors. The Grand Opening campaign was also integrated with the annual Lake Harvest Balloon Festival. As a result of this campaign, we have seen an average of 20 guest visits per week, eight gross sales, the builder hired a second full-time agent and 90 percent of traffic is within the target 50+ market.
