Southeastern Takes Home 3 SMC Awards

The Augusta Sales and Marketing Council 2016 Stellar Awards was held last month highlighting the sales production, marketing achievements, and service to the community. Among local builders and residential communities, 15 awards were presented.

Southeastern took home three SMC awards: Best Community Amenities and Best Website for a Community – presented to River Island, a Southeastern community, and the Platinum Level award presented to Kelly Gates, Residential Office Manager of Southeastern.

River Island is a conservation residential community consisting of 900 acres and is situated on 3.5 miles of Savannah River shoreline.

 A safe haven full of nature trails and outdoor recreation options, River Island is more than a stunning neighborhood; it is an active and engaging way of life.

Featuring miles of nature trails through the community and along the river, a stunning central lodge with terraced views and an outdoor fireplace, River Island is ideal for those seeking a variety of active and passive leisure opportunities. Residents can take their pick of river activities, including boating, fishing, and kayaking.

River Island also offers its residents the opportunity to enroll their children in one of the highest ranked school systems that the state of GA has to offer, Columbia County. The community was named the areas’ first conservation community by the Central Savannah River Land Trust.

Vic Mills, CEO of Southeastern, states “we have a proud, long history of developing the highest quality communities in Augusta. The homes in River Island stand true to this with the highest demand of resale price of any community in the region.”

Kelly Gates took home the highest dollar volume in New Home Sales with over $20 million in sales. Kelly is a member of the National Board of Realtors, Georgia Association of Realtors, and the Greater Augusta Association of Realtors. She is a member of the Sales and Marketing Council, first winning the Gold and then the Platinum level award the last few years, as well as the being a part of the number one communities in Columbia County.

Kelly joined Southeastern in October 2016 with over 14 years of experience in the real estate industry. Kelly states, “I am passionate about the real estate industry and the growth of our community. I especially love helping families find their dream home.” Kelly choose to join Southeastern based on the integrity of the company and their achievements throughout the community.
