"I keep the NAHB Best of 55+ Housing Awards I have received in my offices' conference room and invariably they are the topic of a beneficial conversation with my various stakeholders at least once a week. You just cannot beat my stakeholders seeing them and the added credibility they give to my operation and team."Jim Chapman, President of Jim Chapman Communities, Atlanta

"Without a doubt, the most significant aspect of winning a Best of 55+ Housing Award for our architecture firm is the recognition by clients as an innovative industry leading design firm. And, it hasn't hurt the bottom line either!" Manny Gonzalez, Principal, KTGY Architecture + Planning, Los Angeles

"Winning national awards from NAHB's 55+ Housing Council has had a direct impact on Southport's sales success during the last 18 months. With heavy promotion of our winning multiple national awards through our community's website (www.southportcc.com), in our collateral materials, in our sales center displays, on our business cards and through media releases and TV and radio advertising, we have carefully tracked the results, both on our website and visitors to the community. The value of winning national awards, clearly positions Southport ahead of our competition. The key is not only to win the award but then to market your success through a strategic and comprehensive marketing campaign." — Ronald S. Bonvie, President, Helios Construction, Developer & Builder of Southport on Cape Cod, Mashpee, Mass.
