Presented by the Washington Metropolitan Sales & Marketing Council, the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association, and the Maryland National Capital Building Industry Association, the Great American Living Awards (GALA) celebrate excellence in new home architecture, interior design and sales and marketing in the metropolitan Washington, DC market. So it’s no wonder that this year’s star of the show was Willowsford! This new community – set in the rolling landscape of Loudoun County, Virginia – was inspired by the local farming heritage and a commitment to natural community design. Willowsford won top honors in all of the following categories: Best Community Land Planning, Best Sales Office, Best Interior Merchandising Club House, Best Printed Brochure (magazine), Best Direct Mail (spring broadsheet), Best Broadcast Advertising – Award of Merit, Best Online Campaign, Best Website, Best Print Advertising Ad Campaign, Best Overall Marketing Campaign, Best Event (for Taste of Willowsford) and, of course, Community of the Year. Congratulations Willowsford!
