Golden Night for Traton Homes at 34th Annual OBIE Awards


Traton Homes, OBIE Awards 2014If we had to choose one word to describe the 34th Annual OBIE Awards, it would be golden! On Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014 we were once again recognized for our excellence in building design and marketing with four gold OBIE awards. Hosted by the Sales and Marketing Council of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, the OBIE awards are the premier event in the Atlanta residential real estate market.

“We are thrilled to once again be recognized with OBIE Awards for our construction, merchandising and marketing efforts,” said Kimberly Garwood, director of marketing for Traton Homes. “Over the past 43 years, we have built a solid reputation in the homebuilding industry, and these awards are a testament to the great work that happens here at Traton every day.”

Gold awards received during this year’s OBIE awards included:

  • Montgomery Park – Single Family Builder-Detached (50+ Homes/Year) $350,000 to $424,999
  • Lafayette Square – Best Interior Merchandising – Attached Model $300,000 to $449,999
  • Pinterest Perfect Model Home Campaign – Best Email Marketing Message
  • Pinterest Perfect Model Home Campaign – Best Social Media Campaign Builder/Developer

As one of our most popular communities of 2014, Montgomery Park is known for its traditional neighborhood design located within walking distance of historic Marietta Square. Residents of this community enjoy a low-maintenance lifestyle with amenities that include a community park, dog park and sidewalks throughout. Homes are priced from the mid-$300,000s at Montgomery Park, but with limited opportunities remaining, buyers must act fast to call this award-winning community home!

Lafayette Square is a luxury gated townhome community located in Sandy Springs. Priced from the mid-$300,000s, townhomes at Lafayette Square showcase two- and three-story floor plans with basement townhomes available.

Launched in conjunction with the grand opening of the model home at Lafayette Square, the Pinterest Perfect Model Home campaign was launched in spring of 2014, and was designed and executed by mRELEVANCE, LLC. This is the second year in a row that we have been honored with Best Email Marketing Message and Best Social Media Campaign.

“As the metro Atlanta real estate market continues to pick up speed, it is so important that we ensure Traton’s message of ‘Altogether More’ quality and value are at the forefront for homebuyers to see. Throughout 2014, we have opened several new communities and model homes, and expect to be just as busy, if not busier, in 2015 as we not only grow in Atlanta, but expand into the Charlotte market as well,” added Garwood.
