Providence Group of Georgia, Empire Communities and Kolter Homes are all taking a victory lap after enjoying wins in the double digits at the 2020 OBIE Awards, held by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association. 

Kolter won 17 awards, taking 12 Gold and five Silver Awards for their Cresswind Peachtree City and Cresswind Georgia at Twin Lakes in Hoschton developments.

Empire took home 10 awards this year with nine Gold Awards and one Silver Award for marketing. 

Providence Group won 11 awards — seven Gold Awards and three Silver Awards along with Attached Community of the Year for its Pratt Stacks townhome community.

Kolter Homes Regional Vice President Tony Adams said the awards confirm the success the company has enjoyed at its Cresswind Georgia at Twin Lakes development.

“It further substantiates the benefits Cresswind offers active adult home shoppers with Cresswind Peachtree City previously being named Best 55+ Community in Atlanta by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association,” he said. 

Caroline Simmel, Senior Vice-President, Sales & Marketing at Empire Communities, said the wins were an “incredibly proud” moment for the company to win Gold Awards in multiple categories in the company’s inaugural year in the market. “With the launch of our brand-new website and Intown campaign, our team continues to push industry boundaries with innovative campaigns that connect with homebuyers. These wins show how Empire has entered the Atlanta market in a big way,” she said.
