If you’re not familiar with The Nationals, it’s often considered the Academy Awards of new home sales and marketing. Organized every year by the National Sales & Marketing Council of NAHB, The Nationals draws nearly 1,000 entries from all over the U.S., Canada, and beyond in categories such as Best Salesperson, Best Logo, and our favorite category… Best Website for a Home Builder.
Just a couple weeks ago, The Nationals announced five Silver Award winners in the Best Website category. I am incredibly proud to share that two of those five winners were designed and developed by our team here at ONeil Interactive, and we completed the development of a third. In February 2021, a single Gold Award winner will be announced from among the five Silver Award winners.
Among the Silver winners are CarusoHomes.com and TilsonHomes.com – both designed and developed by our team, and both powered by Homefiniti. A third winner, EsperanzaHomes.com was designed by Esperanza’s ad agency, but Esperanza wanted the power of Homefiniti under the hood. Our development team converted those static designs into the functional award-winning website it is today.
I really, Really, REALLY want the Gold for our trophy shelf. However, the realization that Homefiniti is the software powerhouse behind 60% of the Best Home Builder Websites of 2020 feels like a pretty prestigious award all by itself.
We wish all of our friends the best of luck in February!
