The year's most outstanding work in residential real estate sales, marketing and design was honored by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) at the National Sales and Marketing Awards gala (known as "The NationalsSM"), one of the building industry's most prestigious events. Hosted by the NAHB National Sales and Marketing Council, the event took place on Jan. 19 in Las Vegas during the 2016 International Builders' Show.
"The Nationals are the most prestigious awards of their kind, setting the benchmark for innovation in new home design, marketing and sales," said Christy Beck, MIRM, chairperson of The Nationals. "NAHB's commitment to recognizing originality, imagination and success has been exemplified by its award winners since the competition's inception."
