Woodforest Wins Houston's Best Award

September 21, 2009

With the first residents just beginning to move in, the new Woodforest community has won its first Houston’s Best Award, presented by the Greater Houston Builders Association.

Woodforest won Best Television or Video Promotion for its Vision video. Under the creative direction of Woodforest marketing director Kristi Steward and Baker One Design and produced by VT2 Studios, the video illustrates the community’s master plan, showing Woodforest’s forested landscape and the developer’s vision for life in the community.

The video has been distributed widely to Realtors and prospective home buyers and plays at the Woodforest Welcome Lodge. It can be viewed online on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAOGUQ8LVc4.

In addition to the video win, Woodforest was named a finalist in three other categories: Best Print Ad, Direct Mail and Promotion.

Formerly known as PRISM, the Houston’s Best Awards recognize the local real estate industry’s best people, products and promotions. The black-tie awards gala was held Sept. 15.

A project of The Johnson Development Corp., the newly opened Woodforest surrounds Woodforest Golf Club and is just minutes from the many entertainment and shopping attractions in South Montgomery County, only seven miles from Interstate 45 and just six miles from the outdoor recreation of Lake Conroe. Builders have opened model homes in the wooded community and are actively selling homes, with prices from the $190,000s by some of the nation’s largest homebuilders. The community’s first amenities also have opened.

As development continues, Woodforest residents will enjoy on-site schools and convenient on-site retail, including a suburban marketplace with clusters of shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and residential areas within walking distance of one other.
