Resort inspired active adult community, Soleil Laurel Canyon in Canton, Ga., received four Gold OBIE awards at the 30th Annual OBIE Awards Ceremony held on Nov. 13, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead. The four awards were given to Soleil Laurel Canyon for Best Community Website, Best Marketing Campaign/Promotion, Best Advertising TV Spot, and Best Interior Merchandising for a detached model in the $450,000 to $549,000 category.

“It is an honor to be recognized by our peers in the homebuilding industry,” said Evan Cramer, development manager of Active Lifestyle Communities, the developer of Soleil Laurel Canyon. “We have a solid team in place and without them none of these honors would be possible.”

Every November, the annual OBIE awards are presented by the Sales and Marketing Council of the Home Builders Association. These awards began in 1980, and have continued to grow to now feature remodeling, building, marketing and personal achievement award categories, in which professionals may enter. The highest honor in the Atlanta housing industry is receiving an OBIE award.
