We are pleased to announce that on Sunday, August 3, Saluda River Club, the most successful residential community in South Carolina, was honored by the Home Builders Association of South Carolina with a total of four Pinnacle Awards, including Best Overall Sales and Marketing Pinnacle Award. The yearly event celebrates outstanding craftsmanship in the construction and remodeling of quality homes as well as excellence in sales and marketing tools.

Gilbert & Sheppard Group designs and coordinates all marketing activities for this beautiful master-planned community near Columbia, South Carolina and has been doing so since before Saluda River Club’s opening in 2008. For the entire team at Gilbert & Sheppard Group, this Best Overall Sales and Marketing Pinnacle Award is a splendid recognition of our ongoing strategic and creative efforts on behalf of Saluda River Club.

“We are honored to work with Saluda River Club and Lifestone Communities, the developer of the community,” says Betsy Sheppard, president of Gilbert & Sheppard Group. “It is an outstanding new home community that attracts a variety of homeowners who all love to call Saluda River Club home.”

In addition to this award, Saluda River Club won a Pinnacle Award in each of these other categories:
Sales and Marketing:
• Best Subdivision/Community
• Best Interior Merchandising for a Model Home
• Best New Home Construction: $200,000 to $499,999

Saluda River Club is known nationwide for its well-built, distinctive homes in a beautiful natural setting, located close to Columbia’s major medical facilities and the University of South Carolina. Its luxurious amenities, including the Chickawa Outdoor Center, the Village Clubhouse, clubs and activities, river access, trails and parks, plus its location in one of the best school districts in the state, Lexington School District One, make this a very attractive community for young professionals, growing families and empty nesters alike. In 2013, in addition to its two original neighborhoods, The River District and The Village District, Saluda River Club opened The Woodlands District, introducing ‘New Carolina Living.’
