Each fall, home builders from across Metro Atlanta gather for the annual Obie Awards, presented by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, Inc.’s Sales and Marketing Council. It’s a night of celebrating excellence in the home building industry, with awards for new homes, remodels, and outstanding marketing materials. PSP partners won big again this year, and we’re excited to continue the celebration here!
GOLD WINNER – SINGLE FAMILY BUILDER – DETACHED (BUILDS 1 - 25 HOMES/YEAR) $199,999 and Under
PSP partner EMC Homes won in this category for its Etheridge Plan, a great example of an open-concept ranch floorplan. With an L-shaped island kitchen overlooking the cozy fireplace in the living room, it touched all the right notes for first-time buyers or those looking to downsize. A true ranch, it offered main-level living with three bedrooms and two full baths. Special thanks to the entire EMC Homes team for this well-deserved win!

The home had just the right amount of space with all the fine touches that buyers request most, all inside a beautiful community near shopping, dining, hospitals, and entertainment. Special thanks to Realtor Sonya Turner for all her hard work! Visit Village at Hoschton online for more opportunities from Brightview Homes in this great home town community.
GOLD WINNER - 2019 MARKETING WINNERS: Best Magazine Ad - Peggy Slappey Properties
This ad appeared in the Gwinnett Daily Post early this spring, encouraging buyers to act quickly before mortgage rates “took off.” At the time, it was a widely held belief that rates would soon be raised by the Federal Reserve, making monthly payments substantially higher. Our ad capitalized on the cuteness factor of a boy in a wagon, with a pretend rocket that would “take off” soon. We used this memorable ad to encourage early shoppers to find their home and lock in their rate before it could “take off.” Special thanks and recognition to Julie Slappey, PSP’s Marketing Director, who designed this incredible ad!
SILVER WINNER - 2019 MARKETING WINNERS: Best Logo – Corporate-Builder/Developer: Peggy Slappey Properties
This was a logo re-design featuring bold lines and the re-use of the ironwood tree, specifically requested by the builder for its personal and professional connection to his business. The new logo’s tree is a thoroughly unique, bold new image that calls to mind the builder’s name: Ironwood Builders. It’s meaningful to our builder/client and memorable to home buyers. Special thanks to Clay Black with Ironwood Construction and Julie Slappey with Peggy Slappey Properties.
