Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods Promotional Video Garners a Silver OBIE Award

Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods Promotional Video Screenshot

As the Atlanta real estate industry’s answer to Hollywood’s Emmy Awards, the Atlanta Sales & Marketing Council’s OBIE Awards for video production are considered quite an honor – particularly for those companies that receive them. During the 34th Annual OBIE Awards – hosted at the lovely Atlanta Marriott Marquis – Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods was recognized with a Silver OBIE Award in the Best Audio/Video Promotion for the company’s promotional video produced by Rich Noonan of Hometown Builder Television.

The beautifully executed, professionally produced 6 minute video uses a news feature format to showcase Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods as a homebuilder that not only cares about its customers, but also the quality of the homes it builds. In addition to segments that feature CEO Gregg Goldenberg and numerous sweeping product shots, the video also uses testimonials from a variety of home buyers to secure credibility with the viewer – who is likely a prospective home buyer.

award_silver2014“Because our company was established as recently as 2010, it is still relatively young and new among Atlanta home buyers,” explains Goldenberg. “This video is not only informative, but also helps establish credibility among homebuyers who may be unfamiliar with our name and our product. In order to appeal to a broad spectrum of Atlanta home buyers – from first time buyers to discerning luxury buyers – we must make building our credibility as major an objective as building our brand. This video lends a certain sense of legitimacy, integrity and staying power – quelling concerns for homebuyers that may be gun-shy in light of fears or actual experiences with builders who may have abandoned jobs or entire neighborhoods during the housing market crash.”

In addition to appearing on the homepage of www.AcadiaHomes.com, the video plays on a continuous loop in sales offices at Acadia communities throughout Metro Atlanta.

Model Home at Acadia’s Sawyer Farms Wins the Gold

Sawyer Farms Master Bedroom We are delighted to announce that Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods was honored with the Gold OBIE for Best Interior Merchandising-Detached Model ($299,999 and under) during the 34th Annual OBIE Awards on November 8, 2014. At the heart of this recognition was the new model home at our Sawyer Farms’ community in the City of Grayson. Designed by the talented Tanaya Morgan Williams of Parlay Interiors, this beautifully merchandised home showcases the highest potential of the popular 3139 square foot Jackson floor plan where space is maximized without appearing cluttered.  Throughout the home, Williams masterfully illustrates “a step up” without making it appear out of reach.  Everything from color palette, to furnishings and finishes, to art and accessories were carefully selected to enhance the home and entice the buyer.

Sawyer Farms Dining RoomHomes in Sawyer Farms exemplify Acadia’s legacy of affordable luxury by featuring 4-sided brick exteriors and thoughtfully laid out interiors priced from the mid $200’s – creating an undeniable allure for everyone from seasoned and established families to professional couples with young broods. The merchandising of Sawyer Farms’ model home is strategic in creating a connection with that target audience through a balancing act of spaces. In order for a move-up family to visualize their future at Sawyer, Williams chose a more sophisticated design for the study, media room and in-law suite. At the same time, she created a nursery and small child’s bedroom to illustrate that there are limitless possibilities that might appeal to a young family.  To create a seamless feel between living spaces, a calming yet stylish color palette is used throughout the home. Williams sends subtle, mixed messages of lux, affordability and value through the use of durable, practical, yet elegant fabrics and textures. The overall feel is luxurious, yet practical.

“Tanaya did so much more than design a number of living spaces to appeal to a broad audience,” explains Laura Mahon, Director of Marketing for Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods. “She has created a warm and welcoming atmosphere that instantly puts our guests at ease, while highlighting – rather than overshadowing – some of our model home’s finest features.”

Sawyer Farms KitchenWe encourage you to visit Sawyer Farms to experience this award-winning model home for yourself. While there, you and your family can take a tour of available homes and homesites in this Gwinnett County community poised along Grayson Highway and encompassed by acre after acre of wooded greenspace. In addition to stunning homes and picturesque landscape, Sawyer Farms offers its residents access to excellent schools and close proximity to retail and dining establishments at the Shoppes at Webb Gin. To get there from Atlanta, take Take 1-85N to GA-316E via exit 106 towards Lawrenceville/Athens. Take Sugarloaf exit and keep right to take the ramp toward the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds. Turn right onto Sugarloaf Parkway and travel 6.5 miles. Turn right onto Grayson Highway/GA-20 and travel 1.3 miles. Make u-turn across from Starling Elementary and community will be on your immediate right. Once inside the community, turn left and then take the first turn on the right.

Acadia Homes’ Sam Bass Named Sales Manager of the Year

Sam Bass Headshot 7.25.14Sam Bass – VP of Sales & Marketing for Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods – was honored with the Gold OBIE Award from the Atlanta Sales & Marketing Council of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association during its 34th Annual OBIE Awards Gala. Hosted on Saturday, November 8, 2014 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in downtown Atlanta, the Gala included many of the city’s brightest stars in real estate, development, residential construction, and remodeling. Acadia Homes was proud to be included among them and went home with a total of five OBIE Awards – three Silver and two Gold, including Bass’ special recognition as Sales Manager of the Year.

In his role as VP of Sales & Marketing, Sam Bass directly supervises an astounding 25 communities and 30 salespeople throughout Metro Atlanta. In addition to regular appearances on Atlanta’s Best New Homes TV – under his watch in 2013, sales comprised 209 homes – representing $58,290,434 in total volume of new homes sold and 40% of sellable inventory. As busy as he is, Sam always makes time to host weekly sales meetings to convey company news, encourage solidarity and share ideas with his team – a diverse group of extremely skilled individuals of which he is most proud.

What his sales figures don’t show is the fact that Sam is the epitome of a loyal team player who brings a positive attitude to any task at hand. From a business standpoint, he is constantly looking to the future and encourages his team members to do the same. This makes him a valuable asset to the leadership at Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods. As a leader in his own right, Sam not only takes the time to listen to his team members’ needs, but is also fair, quick to action and understanding when special circumstances arise. He has been known to give a little extra to help his newest team members get on their feet or lend a hand to his most seasoned sales veterans in need. Sam is a unique kind of manager who rolls with the punches, but never ever throws one.

Beyond his capacity as VP, Sam stays deeply involved in the home building industry as a member of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and Sales & Marketing Council. An active member of his church, he is also a devoted father and husband. A great man of integrity, Sam Bass is a trusted friend, dedicated mentor, and experienced broker.

“We are extremely happy for Sam, but not one bit surprised about his recognition as Sales Manager of the Year,” insists Gregg Goldenberg, President and CEO for Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods. “Everyone here is familiar with his unswerving positive attitude and progressive outlook. He works diligently to pull together an excellent team of sales associates to serve as the face of Acadia in our communities throughout Metro Atlanta, and regularly plays the dual roles of coach and cheerleader to help drive our sales. I think I speak for everyone on the team when I say that Sam is a cornerstone of our operation, and we are very fortunate to work with him every day.”

Add in a frightfully fun holiday like Halloween, and we’re happier than a witch in a broom factory! To enhance your own Halloween happiness, we’ve compiled a list of great events and attractions at Acadia Homes communities around town….

Corn on the Cobb in Powder Springs: Located at Stills Family Farm, Corn on the Cobb features a corn maze, hay rides, kiddie zip line, pumpkin patch and more for some great family fun. The best part is, it’s near Acadia Homes’ Reece Farms and Covenant Place communities. Spend the day getting lost in a corn maze, and then find your way “home” in one of our great neighborhoods nearby!

Smyrna’s Fall Jonquil Festival: Set for October 25 and 26 at Smyrna’s Village Green, the autumn installment of this semi-annual festival will feature the inaugural Children’s Halloween Costume Parade, arts & crafts, festival food, live entertainment, kid-friendly activities, and jonquil bulbs for planting. Once again, you’re in luck with regard to the festival’s proximity to a couple of terrific Acadia communities – Sherwood Park with its final opportunities and the newly opened Sutton Park – which is now pre-selling beautifully appointed townhomes from the $300’s.

Haints & Saints Halloween Parade in Downtown Decatur: Located less than 2 miles from our trendy detached townhome community of Kirkwood Green, the iconic and historic Decatur Square will play host to the annual Haints & Saints Halloween Parade on Sunday, October 26.

A Cauldron Full of Halloween Activities in Alpharetta: Perhaps one of the most vibrant cities outside of Atlanta itself, the City of Alpharetta is primed and ready for a number of Halloween happenings over the course of the coming week. Only the brave of heart dare enter the halls of the House on Horror Hill or walk the spooky streets of the city’s historic district during a HOWLpharetta Ghost Tour. Merry making monsters are sure to love the Halloween Party at Jekyll Brewing, while pint-sized phantoms will likely prefer events like Trick or Treating at North Point Mall, the weekend-long Grand Opening of Avalon with Fireworks ON Halloween, and Topgolf’s Putts and Pumpkins Annual Kidzone Halloween Party.

Press Release: Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods Builds Sleek New Brand Image

Award-Winning Builder and Developer Debuts New Logo, Tagline and Website to Reflect Bold Outlook and Current Standing in Atlanta Marketplace

 

Acadia Homes Neighborhoods New Website - October 2014 (web)Atlanta, October 7, 2014 – After four highly successful years in the Atlanta housing market, Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods is suddenly building something other than houses: a sleek new brand image. With more than 20 communities throughout the metro area and a slew of accolades to its credit, the award-winning homebuilder is happy to shed its extremely effective “A New Builder For A New Time” tagline as the company looks ahead to an extremely promising future. The combined debut of a new logo, tagline and website serve to celebrate Acadia’s departure from the image that helped launch its success over the course of the last four years. During a year that has included the opening of a 4500 square foot state-of-the-art Design Gallery and placement at #9 among Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Top 20 Homebuilders in Atlanta, Acadia Homes is proud to proclaim that it’s “All About You.”

“I will always have a particular fondness for our original ‘New Builder For A New Time’ tagline, as it really helped identify us to Atlanta home buyers during a time when they were very leery of the ‘old guard’ leading out of the housing market crash,” explains Gregg Goldenberg, President and CEO of Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods. “However, after just four short years, we are at a point in time when we’re more than ready to assume the role of an established and trusted builder. Since our debut in 2010, we’ve made the Top Ten of Atlanta Business Chronicle’s list of Top 20 Homebuilders in Atlanta twice and have been honored with several awards – including a 2-10 Home Buyer Warranty Award for Customer Service Excellence, a number of OBIEs from the Sales & Marketing Council of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, and the 2013 Pacesetter Award from Atlanta Business Chronicle where we earned our place at #5 among Atlanta’s fastest growing, privately held companies. The new ‘All About You” tagline truly reflects the attitude at the heart of our company as it has been from day one. Everything we do, from concept to completion, is all about the home buyer. We want them to have an unsurpassed home buying experience, that is second only to the actual ownership of their new Acadia home.”

In addition to the tagline, the home builder has recently debuted a crisper, cleaner logo and an image-centric website designed by Rearview Advertising that features:

  • Responsive design to make the website accessible on phone, tablet and desktop devices
  • Community filter to narrow the home search based on numerous preferences ranging from number of bedrooms and baths to price point, amenity features and location
  • Larger product images to better showcase the beautiful homes for which Acadia has based its reputation
  • Upgraded floor plan module which allows for easy navigation of available plans, elevations, virtual tours and details
