2013 STARS Awards Announced!

The STARS Awards are a centerpiece of the 21st Century Building Expo and Conference—the premier building expo and conference in the Southeast. Each year, the gala salutes the outstanding professional performance of HBA members throughout the region with the presentation of the prestigious STARS Awards.

The STARS Awards program honors the achievements of builders, associates, realtors, media and advertising professionals, and many others who make major contributions to the residential home building industry. Local home builders associations are also honored for their outstanding achievements. With 46 categories to choose from, there is something for everyone!

Winners: The winning entries were announced at the 21st Century Building Expo & Conference at the STARS Awards Gala on September 17. Congratulations to the winning recipients

The marketing benefit of reaching for the STARS

Ever wonder why your company should enter the STARS Awards? Are you curious as to what companies do with such an award? The answer goes beyond the trophy and immediate recognition to include the role that a STARS Award can play in the big picture of a company's overall marketing and sales strategy. Marketing programs in general are all aimed at convincing people to try out or to keep using particular products or services. Professional recognition such as the STARS Awards can be a great addition to your marketing tool belt!

What advertising your STARS Award(s) can do for your business?

  • Highlight the quality and benefits of your product or service to current and potential customers,
  • Establish and maintain your distinct identity as a company and professional,
  • Enhance your professional reputation,
  • Give you an edge over the competition,
  • Encourage existing customers to buy more of what you sell, and
  • Promote your business.
