Now in its 37th year, The Nationals℠—National Sales and Marketing Awards pay tribute to superior new-home sales and marketing achievements by individual sales and marketing professionals, homebuilders and associates, and sales and marketing councils.

The nation's largest competition for new-home sales and marketing professionals and communities, The Nationals℠ showcases winners 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 Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. 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 125,000 building industry professionals.

Legacy of Distinction
Today's competition reflects years of improvements and refinements affected by the NSMC and The Nationals℠ advisory group to ensure categories are up to date and relevant to all regions in the United States. Originating in 1982 as the MIRM Awards, the program now known as The Nationals℠ sustains the commitment to innovation, imagination, and marketing flair that has always characterized the competition's winners since the inception of the competition. Inaugurated by NAHB's Institute of Residential Marketing (IRM), the MIRM Awards established superlative standards of performance that The Nationals℠ proudly upholds today.

Earned Stature
The largest competition in the nation for new-home sales and marketing professionals and communities, The Nationals℠ is also the most prestigious, in part because it is national in scope, and categories are effectively linked to real-world marketing strategies and challenges. Award categories are regularly refined with new opportunities made available in response to feedback from the Sales and Marketing Councils (SMCs) across the country.

The Nationals℠ also recognizes Community of the Year achievements, with winners selected from attached, and detached project categories. Individual sales and marketing pros are eligible in five special achievement categories, as are Sales and Marketing Councils throughout the country.

In conjunction with The Nationals℠, Legends of Residential Marketing are honored for significant contributions to the industry over time. The select group honored as Legends demonstrate exceptional creativity and innovation in new-home marketing, and are rightly celebrated at The Nationals℠ awards ceremony.

Renowned for Integrity
Winners of The Nationals℠ emerge from a painstaking three-day judging process that includes evaluation by some of the industry's finest marketing professionals, representing a wide range of disciplines and a geographic cross section. Architects and builders join marketing colleagues in the judging panels along with market-research consultants, trade publishers, and senior editors. All are committed to fair and full attention to each entrant and are ineligible to submit entries into the competition.
