Each November, the Greater Atlanta Home Builder’s Association (HBA) and the Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) present the OBIE Awards. The awards ceremony and dinner took place this past Saturday in downtown Atlanta, and PSP had a great night celebrating excellence in the building industry.
WHAT ARE THE OBIES?
The OBIES are given to recognize outstanding achievement in new home building, marketing, remodeling, and personal achievement categories. Named after the obelisk shape of the physical award given, the OBIEs are the premier awards in the new home construction industry.
OBIE Award recipients truly stand out among their peers, and PSP continues to celebrate all who were recognized, especially our PSP partners:

Peggy Slappey Properties – Gold: Best Magazine Ad
We're very proud of very own Julie Slappey, Peggy Slappey Properties Marketing Director, for her work on this ad that ran in Gwinnett Magazine. Designed to stand out from other real estate ads that feature homes or decorated rooms, this ad highlighted a sophisticated woman in need of more space. It won for its originality and because it kept copy short and to the point. It grabbed the target market's attention (buyers 27-45 years old) and resulted in several calls that led to sales and established great relationships for the future.
Congratulations to all the 2018 OBIE recipients! Here's to another great year of building in Metro Atlanta!
