On November 8, the inaugural SAMM award ceremony was held at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia in Paradise Valley. Shea Homes® was honored with an award for Best Community Sales Collateral for its new Shea Signature community, Azure, Paradise Valley.

The SAMM awards recognize the valley’s very best sales and marketing achievements in the homebuilding and real estate industry. The SAMM Awards, which stands for builder Sales, Advertising, Marketing and Merchandising, was created to recognize leadership and innovation among homebuilders.

The panel of judges included Charity Moreland, Homeowners Financial Group; Jim Belfiore, Belfiore Real Estate Consulting; Tina Tamboer, the Cromford Report; Ray Schey, Phoenix Business Journal; Rick Merritt, Elliott D. Pollack and Company; and Steve Rider, National Builder Trade-In Program. More than 20 categories were recognized and the top professionals in the business were honored for their achievements in design, sales, and more at this debut event, powered by DLP Marketing.

Azure is the first Shea Signature™ community by Shea Homes and was designed in collaboration with Erik Peterson from PHX Architecture. Azure is a private enclave of only sixty-six luxurious residences harmoniously blending transformational architecture and thoughtful design.

Personalized with distinctive designer amenities and options such as rolling walls of glass, detached casitas, elevators, wine rooms and basements, the homes of Azure are built with the ultimate craftsmanship and attention to detail. Additional information is available at azurepvliving.com.
