Lennar Atlanta Puts Family First – from the Ground Up

When Craig and April Hoffmann decided to build the perfect home for their young family, they were cautioned by friends and relatives not to add yet another element of stress to their lives. The couple had just welcomed their third daughter and Craig had recently started a new job.

They knew that selling the house they were in and building a new one would be a challenge, but instead of the difficult experience they were anticipating, they have found that the process of building their Lennar Atlanta dream home in Fieldstone Preserve in Cumming was “… a delight.”

“We took a very deliberate approach to the entire process,” explains Craig. “We studied a lot of different floor plans and options and spent quite a bit of time interviewing various builders in the greater Atlanta area. We also looked at the various school systems, and the amenities and social aspects of each community where we could be raising our family.”

The Hoffmanns decided on Lennar Atlanta’s Magnolia model with an unfinished basement. It has the right lay-out, including a large open kitchen (with a sit down counter that is perfect for doing homework) that connects to a spacious first-floor common area where the whole family can share lots of time together.

The school district and the actual neighborhood where their new home is located were also major factors in the decision making process. “The amenities at Fieldstone Preserve are outstanding. We really appreciate the fact that there is a kid-friendly tennis program, the Tennis Academy, and a great pool. My wife and I look forward to sharing our love for tennis with our girls.”

Building their first home has been a happy, positive experience. “From before we broke ground to our weekly update calls from our personal builder(s), we have been continually amazed at the level of personal, professional and friendly interactions we have had with each member of our Lennar Team. Our property agents, Pat and Marty, and especially our builders, Chris and Rick, are engaged and passionate professionals and have delivered on every single detail they said from the beginning of our experience with Lennar Atlanta.”

Even though the closing on their beautiful new home will not be until the end of August, the family has made a real effort to participate in a number of neighborhood activities and events already during the past months. When the new school year started up recently, the Hoffmanns met more than 20 other Fieldstone Preserve families at the school bus stop to see their two oldest daughters off to the first day at their new school in Forsyth County.

“This will be our family’s home for at least the next 15 years,” expects Craig. “This is where we will sit down together for dinner every night, and share great times with new neighbors and friends.”

Lennar Atlanta Welcomes Family to Deerfield Green:
From Next Door to Front Door

Unlike her original move to the South from Brooklyn (NY), where she was born, Cherise Tawfiq and her family did not have to move far when they decided to purchase their new townhome in the Deerfield Green neighborhood in Milton.

“We were already living right next door to this great community when one of our former neighbors, who herself had recently moved into Deerfield Green, recommended that we come check out Deerfield Green’s spacious design. We fell in love with the open floor plan of this particular townhome, and its beautiful kitchen that included all appliances, and the rest is history,” says Mrs. Tawfiq.

Staying in the same area and in the same school district were big factors in making the decision to move to Deerfield Green. In addition, Mrs. Tawfiq notes that “…working with Lennar Atlanta’s lender made the entire process simple and seamless.” As an analyst with a local brokerage firm with an extensive background in the financial services industry, she appreciates the business side of one of the largest financial transactions in any family’s life.

The hardest part of the move? For Mrs. Tawfiq, who enjoys decorating, sewing and even installing tile, it is which room to decorate first. “It has only been a month since we moved, and we are still in the process of moving in. I am full of ideas – now I just have to find the time!”

Lennar Atlanta Welcomes New Resident to Deerfield Green!

In just one short month, Steve Kish will be moving into his brand new townhome in the Deerfield Green community, conveniently located right off GA 400 and just three miles from his office at Red Book Connect, an IT company specializing in software programs for the restaurant business.

“I already discovered this North Fulton neighborhood last August, when I started looking for a new home in this area,” says Steve. “When I checked it out again in September, I stepped into the Lennar Atlanta Welcome Home Center where I met David Kunis, the New Home Consultant – and found that we had a lot of friends and professional background in common. He ultimately sold me my new home.”

Although Steve was already working in Alpharetta, he still had to sell his home in Charlotte before purchasing a new home in Georgia. In December, the former Woodstock resident moved back to Atlanta permanently.

“I’ve been happy to live with my brother in the Virginia Highlands area, but I am ready to move into Deerfield Green in August,” says Steve. “I really researched Lennar Atlanta, the builder of this community before making the decision to buy this home. Since I work so close by, I have been able to check out the progress of the construction, and I am impressed with Lennar’s quality and craftsmanship. They’re top-notch.”

“This home has everything on my checklist: I like the fact that it is an all-brick townhouse, and as a former restaurant chef, having the large open kitchen connected to the great room is just perfect – I love to entertain,” explains Steve. “My home has a great floor plan, and the fact that this is an Everything’s Included Home is a bonus too – although I did select the extra upgrades to make it my dream home that also sports a South-facing deck and a good amount of privacy.”

Deerfield Green’s location, floor plans and amenities were all factors that convinced Steve to move to this community. In addition, he says, “I know this part of the metro area, and even have a few high school friends living nearby. I cannot wait to get planted and involved here.”

Welcome to Deerfield Green, Steve!

Lennar Atlanta’s Deerfield Green:
Showcases Townhome Living At Its Best

Deerfield Green, Lennar Atlanta’s newest townhome community in Milton, conveniently close to GA400 in North Fulton County, has been built to welcome a variety of homeowners. The spacious, low-maintenance homes are part of an amenity-rich neighborhood that appeals to young professionals, smaller families and active adults who appreciate the innovative floor plans and extra touches that make Deerfield Green such a great place to live.

Special care has been given to the interior design of the model home at Deerfield Green. Cindi MacPherson, NCIDQ, (National Certification for Interior Design Qualifications) who co-founded The Interior Partners with Ashley Norred in 2007, was asked by Lennar Atlanta to create an environment that would show the Deerfield Green townhome to its greatest advantage. The Interior Partners is a full service design firm offering design services for model home merchandising, commercial, professional and residential spaces and provides interior design services throughout the Southeastern U.S.

“It’s all about the lifestyle at Deerfield Green,” notes Cindi. “It is up to us to make buyers recognize right away that, ‘Hey, I can see myself living here. This is just perfect for us!’ Homebuyers want to visualize what they can do with the space. We help them connect with the home on an emotional level.”

For the showcase home at Deerfield Green, Cindi created a somewhat eclectic, “urban-suburban” style, amplified by a sophisticated color scheme of fresh yellows, taupe-greys and an unexpected touch of plum. “Of course, when you are mixing pieces and styles, you have to be careful not to go ‘early attic’ – and you have to make sure that the pieces you select are scaled appropriately,” she says.

Cindi has been in the homebuilding Industry for more than 20 years. Her background includes experience as a builder and developer. This gives her knowledge in not only interior design, but also in the construction of the actual home. She is a recognized speaker on interior design trends and model home merchandising.

“The Deerfield Green townhomes have such a great lay-out – and that made this interior design project even more fun! The open kitchen and living area are very welcoming, great for entertaining, and there is an excellent space for a home office. I even think that there will be some new homeowners who will turn the living room into a formal dining room – the floor plan offers lots of possibilities,” according to Cindi.

Lennar Atlanta Townhomes Are Popular with Mix of Generations

Deerfield Green in Milton is just one example of Lennar Atlanta’s new townhome communities in the greater metropolitan Atlanta area. In addition to this neighborhood of spacious and low-maintenance homes near GA400, the company has built townhomes in more than six additional communities throughout the metro-Atlanta area. Beautiful, well-designed townhomes have been a great success in Lennar neighborhoods like Vintage Square, Shiloh Woods and Lakepoint at Johns Creek.

“It’s not just the young professionals who are scooping up our townhomes the minute they come to the market,” says Ginny Bryant, Director of Sales for Lennar Atlanta. “Of course, they like the ‘easy living’ lifestyle – when you have no lawns to mow or lots of indoor or outdoor improvement projects, you have extra time for fun activities with your friends, and to enjoy the amenities that many of our townhome communities offer.”

But, according to Bryant: “In the past three years, we have noticed a marked increase in the sale of our townhomes to active 50+ homebuyers, and that is really a reflection of a national trend.”

“Empty nesters are just as eager to embrace a lifestyle that allows them more time for socializing, traveling and taking up leisure pursuits, like biking or practicing yoga. Not worrying about maintenance and having a ‘lock and leave’ lifestyle are high on the list of reasons to buy a townhome, whether you are 28 or 58.”

Another reason to purchase a Lennar Atlanta townhome is the sense of community that often exits in these popular neighborhoods. Active homeowner associations plan activities and get-togethers and make everyone feel welcome, including younger first-time buyers as well as singles and couples who have decided to downsize.

Lennar Atlanta Breaks for Lunch – 2,000 Lunches, To Be Exact

For the third consecutive year, almost all of Lennar Atlanta’s sales associates got together this week to prepare 2,000 lunches for children who otherwise might go hungry during the summer, when school is out.

Inspired by the Cobb Association of REALTORS® (CAR), whose members work together with MUST Ministries, 16 Atlanta-based Lennar Atlanta professionals, together with representatives of other participating companies, spent a full day preparing 2,000 sack lunches for distribution later this week to underserved children. Each lunch includes a sandwich, a drink, a fruit roll-up and other treats, and comes in a bag that is decorated by volunteers as well.

According to a recent article in the Marietta Daily Journal, “MUST Ministries is a faith-based organization that provides food, housing, employment services and clothing to men, women and children in poverty, with offices in Cobb and Cherokee counties.

This summer, MUST plans to serve 250,000 sack lunches to children in eight counties during the 10 weeks of summer.”

“We are delighted to be able to donate our time and resources to be part of this meaningful effort to feed kids who are going without their daily school lunches during the summer,” says Ginny Bryant, Director of Sales for Lennar Atlanta. “Every year, the Lennar Atlanta team has a great time, and we even though we go home smelling of mustard, we leave with big grins on our faces.”

“MUST Ministries’ slogan is: ‘hope is a must’ – and we want to be part of this important outreach program in our communities,” notes Bryant.

A powerful, volunteer-driven organization, MUST addresses the basic needs of individuals, families and children with facilities in the Cobb and Cherokee counties and programs in numerous other counties.

Lennar Atlanta’s New Bellwood, Harrison Park Neighborhoods Open in June

Lennar Atlanta will introduce two new metro-Atlanta neighborhoods later in June 2014: Bellwood in Marietta and Harrison Park in Cumming.

Since opening its Georgia headquarters in July 2010, Lennar Atlanta has built more than 30 communities throughout Georgia, mainly along Atlanta’s northern crescent, with six more slated to become available for sale during the rest of 2014.

“We’ve hit the ground running,” says Todd Jones, Division President. “Our local office has grown to 74 associates in the past four years, and our team has been able to respond to Atlanta’s renewed demand for new, well-built quality homes at a consistent pace. Nationwide, Lennar is recognized for its commitment to excellence, and as a publicly held company, our financial strength provides the support and stability that makes this growth possible.”

On June 21, Lennar Atlanta will open Bellwood, an Everything’s Included® community conveniently located near Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park in Cobb County. Bellwood’s proximity to great schools, such as Cheatham Hill Elementary and Hill Grove High School, is a major draw for growing families looking to move to this area.

A week later, on June 28, Harrison Park will open its onsite sales center in Forsyth County off Mathis Airport Road. More than a dozen homes have already been placed under contract over the last few months from an offsite location. In addition to beautiful homes with elegant, spacious floor plans, this gated community features some spectacular amenities, including a Junior Olympic pool, tennis courts and a well-designed playground. Just minutes from GA 400, Harrison Park is near superb shopping at The Collection while also close to some great outdoor areas, perfect for hiking, biking and watersports.

Harrison Park is the seventh neighborhood developed by Lennar Atlanta in Forsyth County, recently named by Forbes magazine as one of the best places to get ahead in America and one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People (Source: America’s Promise/Alliance for Youth).
