The 50+ Housing Council, part of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, recently named Jim Chapman Secretary of the Executive Committee for 2009. Jim has served on the Board of Directors for two years and currently serves as Sponsorship Committee Chair. In January, Chapman will take over as Secretary on the Executive Committee. Election for this position creates the opportunity for Chapman to serve as Treasurer in 2010, Vice Chair in 2011 and Chairman of the Board in 2012.

Big kudos to Jim Chapman Communities as they sold 12 total units in the month of August alone. This is an extraordinary accomplishment when you take into account the dim housing market and unstable economy. Brookhaven of East Cobb sold the most number of active adult new homes out of the Jim Chapman Communities, ending the month with a total of six. This is the community that recently won two awards, both a gold and a silver, at the National Association of Home Builders Best of 50+ Housing Awards Gala. It’s not surprising that Brookhaven of East Cobb has become the most popular Jim Chapman community as it has so much to offer those entering the retirement age. The convenient Kennesaw location puts residents next to I-75 and I-575, as well as Town Center mall and all of the entertainment attractions of Barrett Parkway. The location in combination with the low maintenance homes with luxurious features that were designed with the active adult in mind make the community truly exceptional. An interesting tidbit about the high sales numbers is that traffic was lower in August than it usually is. Brookhaven of East Cobb averages 180 traffic units per month, but only had 60 in August.
Brookhaven at Sugarloaf was a close second by selling five units. Now the Gwinnett County community has only one inventory unit left! Like Brookhaven of East Cobb, these active adult homes in Duluth are in a great location to settle into your golden years. Discover Mills Mall and the Gwinnett Arena are just down the street from Brookhaven at Sugarloaf. The community also provides close proximity to I-85. Bear in mind there is only one inventory home remaining, so if you are looking to move in immediately to a low maintenance, active adult home, you shouldn’t procrastinate any longer. (more…)
