Towne Properties’ RentCafe websites win Hermes Creative Awards
Aug 11, 2022
We’re excited to celebrate a recent win for Towne Properties, a Yardi and REACH by RentCafe client.
In June, it was announced that two of Towne’s redesigned property websites received Hermes Creative Gold Awards in the Electronic Media / Social Media / Interactive Media category. Both websites were built on our RentCafe platform and supported by the REACH digital marketing agency.
“Winning the Hermes Awards for our website redesigns honors the incredible work of our marketing team,” said Karen Zapkowski, marketing specialist at Towne Properties. “Having the right website technology from the start was critical. We’ve been able to build on that to create sites that reflect our brands and engage potential renters.”
