The Academy Awards for homebuilders.
Presented by the Sales and Marketing Council of the National Homebuilders Association, Silver Nationals are handed out to the top vote recipients in several categories. These recipients then become national finalists for the Gold Awards which will be announced and presented at the Builders Show.
The Nationals pay tribute to superior new–home sales and marketing achievements, homebuilders, and associates. As the nation’s largest competition for new–home sales and marketing professionals and communities, The Nationals showcase award-winning builders in distinguished national, regional, and local publications.
The competition is presented by the National Sales and Marketing Council (NSMC), a council of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), along with co–sponsors Whirlpool Appliances, Gladiator Garage Works, and KitchenAid. Preferred sponsors include major building product manufacturers, financial institutions, homebuilders and developers, architects, and associates in real estate.
The Nationals Awards ceremony is one of the highlights for the NAHB’s annual International Builders’ Show (IBS), an exposition and conference that routinely attracts more than 90,000 building industry professionals, including the best builders across the nation.
