Luxury boutique hi-rise AQUA at Pelican Isle in Naples won a prestigious Excel Award for the Best Overall Marketing Program announced AQUA Director of Sales Darlene Hillard. The dynamic award-winning campaign, entitled The Water Is Waiting was conceived by Wilson Creative Group, led by real estate advertising industry veteran Peggy Wilson. The multi-media campaign, comprised of television commercials, a new interactive website, magazine and newspaper ads, direct mail, social media, email marketing and public relations, made extensive use of custom photography of the community’s water views, interior designed furnished model residences and luxury lifestyle amenities.

Located adjacent to the Pelican Isle Yacht Club at Wiggins Pass in North Naples, AQUA’s expansive custom residences, priced from over $1.9 million to over $2.545 million, range between 3,900 to just under 4,200 square feet with three bedrooms, three and a half baths and either a living/family room or living/family room plus den. According to Ms. Hillard, only seven waterfront residences, including a palatial penthouse, remain available for sale.

Sponsored by the Florida Home Builders Association and the Southeastern Building Council (SEBC), Excel Awards honor excellence in the construction and related industries, specifically those builders, commercial contractors, craftsman, Realtors®, on-site salespeople, public relations professionals, associate/supplier, media and advertising professionals who make major contributions to the residential home building and commercial construction industry through superior, innovative and creative sales and marketing.
