Real estate investment firm Hines was recently recognized for the marketing of its St. Augustine master-planned community Markland at the 22nd Annual Laurel Awards Gala.

The company won “Best in Class” for Markland’s print advertising, logo and print brochure. Held March 17 at Alhambra Theatre & Dining, the event was hosted by the Northeast Florida Builders Association Sales and Marketing Council to celebrate the best in real estate marketing. More than 230 people from 30 different companies attended the ceremony.
