The winners of the 2016 Dave Awards were announced, with St. Petersburg-based advertising agency, Pinstripe Marketing, taking home a silver statuette for its web site design and development for Southern Roots Realty. A panel of judges reviewed more than 4,000 entries from all 50 states and around the world – the Davey Awards honors the finest creative work from the best small agencies, firms, and companies worldwide.
“The winners in this year’s competition truly reflect the notion of small agencies executing big ideas. The work entered into this year’s Daveys portrays the smart approach to creativity that embodies the capabilities and talents of small firms across the world,” said Linda Day, executive director of the Davey Awards.
Southern Roots Realty, a St. Petersburg-based real estate agency, tapped Pinstripe Marketing to design and develop a web site that highlights the home listings visitors expect from real estate sites, and through a custom integration with WolfNet, it also features robust search functionality and lead generation tools for the agency. What makes Southern Roots unique is their deep knowledge of and affinity for St. Petersburg’s diverse neighborhoods, so the Pinstripe team incorporated that into the site. The agents regularly post insights about the most popular areas of the city, illustrating why buyers and sellers need the Southern Roots team in their corner. The site can be found at www.southernrootsrealty.com.
“The Southern Roots team has a long and celebrated history in our city,” said Ginger Reichl, president of Pinstripe Marketing. “It was important that we design a site that is beautiful and effectively tells their story, is efficient for house hunters, and is built to our high standards of development. It is an honor to win this prestigious award, but it was more important that we drive business to Southern Roots.”
