"The 2009 ProSales Excellence Award winners exemplify how you can do great things even when the housing market is suffering through its worst times in decades," said Craig Webb, ProSales' editor. "Franklin's top-class showroom helped it expand its reach into new parts of the homebuilding market. The Standard Group's use of inventory-tracking technology has more than paid off in time savings and increased control of its stock. Parr's marketing efforts helped it become known as a green building leader in the Pacific Northwest as well as a welcoming spot for the do-it-yourself builder. And the websites created by Ridgefield, TW Perry and Boston Cedar have enabled them to better serve existing customers and attract new buyers."

Along with the stories, the four prize winners also will receive a $500 check to give to the charity of their choice. To take part in the 2010 Excellence Awards competition, contact Craig Webb.
