New York, NY, April 2015: PACE Advertising, one of the longest-standing and most honored agencies serving the New Jersey homebuilders’ market, was the recipient of six awards at the 28th annual SAM Awards celebration, held March 26th at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. The SAM Awards, presented by the New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA), are the most coveted honors within the state to recognize creative achievement in new home sales and marketing. The presentation of the SAM Awards caps off an outstanding awards season for PACE. Last month, the agency was recognized by the Shore Builders Association of Central New Jersey (SBACNJ) with nine FAME Awards for excellence in marketing accomplishments in the homebuilding industry.
PACE, a full-service advertising, marketing and branding agency based in New York City, won SAM awards in a variety of categories for a number of different clients, as well as for the agency itself, recognizing its work across a broad spectrum of marketing initiatives. Awards included: Best Corporate Ad (for K. Hovnanian Homes); Best Internet Promotion – Client (for K. Hovnanian Homes); Best Billboard (for Sharbell Development – Union Lofts at Town Center); Best Special Promotion for a Community (Kalian Companies – Carriage Gate at Little Silver); Best Logo Design (PACE 65th Anniversary); and Best Internet Promotion (PACE 65th Anniversary Email).
“We’re pleased and very honored to receive these prestigious awards from the NJBA, following so quickly on the heels of our recent FAME Award wins,” said Cara Faske, President of PACE Advertising. “It means a lot to be honored by our friends and peers in the building community and we’re proud of the work we’ve done for all our New Jersey clients this year. This kind of recognition validates our commitment to serving the New Jersey homebuilder community and continues to solidify our standing as one of the leading agencies in the tri-state area, committed to excellence in marketing and advertising.”
Holly Kingsley, Senior Vice President of PACE Advertising, commented further on the significance of this year’s crop of SAM Awards received by the agency. “What’s especially rewarding is to be recognized for work that we’ve done for a variety of different clients, which demonstrates our broad reach across New Jersey, but also for work that spans a variety of marketing channels, from digital initiatives to logo design to more traditional advertising efforts. PACE has always been a full-service agency, and these awards reflect our diversity of creativity and capabilities.”
