John Manlove Marketing & Communication’s “We’ve Arrived” television commercial wins best in country

Houston, Texas January 21, 2016- The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has chosen John Manlove Marketing & Communication’s “We’ve Arrived” television commercial as best in the country at the 36th Annual National Sales and Marketing Awards in Las Vegas. “We’ve Arrived” was created and produced for Bridgeland a Howard Hughes Corporation Development in Cypress, Texas.

The 60″ TV spot features scenes of residents enjoying Bridgeland, an 11,400-acre master planned community that offers a stunning blend of nature and modern amenities to residents. The agency’s goal was for viewers of the T.V. spot to experience and discover the unique beauty of Bridgeland – and based on the response, the music and message are resonating.
