Hamilton, NJ, March 31, 2014 – The New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA) honored the industry’s most creative and successful sales and marketing initiatives at the 27th Annual Sales and Marketing (SAM) Awards Banquet on March 27. This gala event was the grand finale of the 65th Annual Atlantic Builders Convention at the Resort Casino Hotel in Atlantic City from March 25 to March 27, 2014. The SAM Awards honor excellence in residential design and marketing programs within New Jersey.

The SAM Awards Banquet was attended by more than 450 advertising, sales, marketing, media, and home building industry professionals. Awards were presented in 100 categories recognizing “Best in Class” sales and marketing initiatives in residential marketing, architectural design, remodeling, and individual creative achievements. Builders, as well as companies that supply products and services to the building industry, are eligible for a SAM Award.

“The SAM Awards honor the sales and marketing professionals that have the creative vision and marketing savvy to promote and sell homes,” said NJBA President, David B. Fisher, PP, AICP. “Our members strive each year to bring to market award winning home designs and well-planned communities.”

Carol Smith-Gephart, SAM CommitteeChair with Fernmoor Homesadded, “In today’s market, it is important to increase brand recognition. Prospective home owners need to know that they are buying a high-quality home from a respectable builder.”
