Brookhaven at Johns Creek named best small active adult community in the nation
Brookhaven at Johns Creek, a Jim Chapman Communities neighborhood, received the Gold Award for best small active adult community during the National Active Retirement Association’s (NARA) annual conference in late October.
NARA is a fast-growing, ten-year-old business trade group for America’s top professionals involved in building for, marketing to and serving the “50 and beyond” age group.
“Although 2010 has been a challenging year, we have worked diligently to create a unique property that continues to outperform the general real estate market,” said Gail Laney, on-site agent at Brookhaven at Johns Creek. “
Judges cited the community’s location near country club-style amenities, access to area health care and interesting design features as the strengths of this 55+ age-restricted community, which earned it the designation as the premier small active adult community in the nation.
“Our judges were extremely impressed with our top winners in the retirement design/build category because of their focus on enriching the lifestyle of their residents,” said NARA Director Dan Owens. “For instance, Brookhaven [at Johns Creek] is a smaller 55+ property but residents there do have access to a lifestyle director who organizes activities and events.

The 29th Annual OBIE Awards Gala was held this past weekend, November 7th to be exact, at the Cobb Galleria. As you know, these are the most prestigious home builder awards for the Atlanta market and to win is a huge honor. Jim Chapman Communities is no stranger to being an OBIE award winner having received multiple honors in the past, but that doesn’t make this year’s achievement any less impressive. The active adult home builder won a total of four awards at Saturday’s event – two Gold awards and two Silver awards.
One of the Gold awards was in the highly coveted “Community of the Year: Attached” category with Brookhaven of East Cobb being the winning community – this is actually the third Community of the Year award for the builder. Brookhaven at Johns Creek was the other community receiving a gold award this year for “The Amenity Package/Under 499 Units.”
Brookhaven at Johns Creek thoroughly impressed the OBIE judges this year, as it also won Silver Awards for Best Building Design – Detached ($400,000 to $499,999) and Best Interior Merchandising – Detached Model ($450,000 – $549,999).
Congratulations Jim Chapman Communities! Your active adult new homes set a high standard for other fifty plus builders in Atlanta and your repeated wins at the OBIE awards only proves it.
The Jim Chapman Community of Brookhaven at John’s Creek only celebrated their grand opening in late 2008 and in less than one year, the community is already winning awards. The active adult community in John’s Creek features several floorplans for homeowners to choose from, all of which feature the master suite on the main level, but it’s the Ansley floorplan that is turning heads by winning the 2009 National Association of Home Builders Best Detached Floorplan.
The Ansley is offered exclusively at Johns Creek and features three bedrooms with three full baths plus many added finishes that are sure to impress homebuyers. With over 2,200 square feet of space, this detached home offers a rear lanai with fireplace, creating the perfect outdoor living space, and a full day-light walk out basement.
Brookhaven at Johns Creek is a gated, maintenance free community located in the highly sought-after North Fulton area. The Ansley is just one of many detached and attached, one level floorplans the community has to offer. All homes feature brick and stone construction with inviting front porches, vaulted ceilings, spacious master suites and other features specifically designed for individuals aged 55 and over.
This Jim Chapman Community has been built to compliment the active adult lifestyle by offering incredible amenities including lighted tennis courts, a paved walking trail, a large heated pool, croquet courts, a 5,000 square foot Grand Clubhouse with exercise room and much more. Be sure to stop by for a tour of this award-winning floorplan.
Jim Chapman Communities’ success at the 50+ Housing Awards has made headlines.
If you recall, the Atlanta active adult home builder took home two silver awards at the national banquet: Brookhaven of East Cobb was honored with the prestigious Community of the Year recognition, and Brookhaven at Johns Creek was awarded the Best Detached Home over 2,000 square feet.
Atlanta was well represented at the 50+ Housing Awards in Philadelphia, which is the reason that the Atlanta Journal-Constitution decided to highlight the award recipients, including Jim Chapman Communities.
Of course, what the article does not mention, is that this is the second year in a row that Jim Chapman Communities has brought home multiple awards from the national competition. In 2008, Brookhaven of East Cobb won both a gold and silver award at the gala (the gold for Active Adult Clubhouse and the sivler for Active Adult Attached Home Design).
As a consistent winner of national honors and awards, it is clear that Jim Chapman Communities is one of Atlanta’s premier active adult home builders. They have six active adult communities throughout metro Atlanta, and all of them feature Atlanta new homes that cater to the needs of individuals aged 55 and over. However, Jim Chapman Communities goes above and beyond building the perfect active adult home by offering a community full of amenities and activities that help bring neighbors together. The sense of community is what sets Jim Chapman Communities apart from the rest, and is overwhelmingly one of the top selling points for homeowners.
Once again Jim Chapman Communities has been recognized for its excellence in building elegant, yet affordable housing for the 50+ active adult community. This year Atlanta’s leading active adult home builder received two prestigious awards at The National Association of Home Builder’s Best of 50+ Housing Awards in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The awards banquet is the industry’s most distinguished national awards program. Only the best builders in the country are honored for excellence in design, building, and marketing of housing for active adults.
Jim Chapman Communities was awarded the Silver Award in the Community of the Year Division for their active adult community at Brookhaven of East Cobb as well as the Silver Award for Best Detached Home at an Active Adult Community for the Ansley floorplan at Brookhaven at Johns Creek.
“To be recognized on a national level by our peers is exciting,” said Jim Chapman, president of Jim Chapman Communities. (more…)
Big congratulations to Jim Chapman Communities! The active adult home builder in Atlanta was recently honored with two Silver Awards at the National Association of Home Builder’s Best of 50+ Housing Awards, which was held on April 28 at the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott. When it comes to the active adult home building industry, the 50+ Housing Awards are the most prestigious awards program around. It gives Jim Chapman Communities national recognition as a leader in the active adult home building industry.
Even better, Jim Chapman Communities received one of the most coveted awards of the evening, Community of the Year (under 500 units). Brookhaven of East Cobb won the silver award in this category, bear in mind this is the second year in a row that this Cobb County active adult community has received national recognition at the 50+ Housing Awards.
The other silver award earned by Jim Chapman Communities was for the Best Detached Home at an Active Adult Community (over 2,000 square feet). The Ansley floorplan available at Brookhaven at Johns Creek is the winning floorplan. Most of the time we talk about the ranch condos available at the Jim Chapman communities. The Ansley floorplan is a bit different since it is one of the detached homes. Of course, the home is designed to cater to the needs of individuals entering their retirement, but it offers a little bit more privacy than the ranch condos. The home features three bedrooms with three full baths – one of the bedrooms is a bonus room above the two-car garage. It’s an open floorplan, making it perfect for entertaining. You’ll find both an inviting front porch and screened-in back porch in the Ansley floorplan with french doors leading from the living room to the back porch. It really is a remarkable home for any active adult, which is evident by the fact that it won the silver award for Best Detached Home.
Doesn’t it seem like every time you turn around Jim Chapman Communities is winning another award? Well, that may be true, but it is a true testament to the exceptional communities the active adult builder creates. And remember that they recently opened their first non age-restricted community. Now home buyers of all ages can purchase a low-maintenance new home in Atlanta by this award-winning builder.
Jim Chapman Communities is extremely proud to have received five OBIE awards at this year’s ceremony earlier this month. The OBIE awards program is hosted by the Sales and Marketing Council of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, and this year’s event was the 28th annual awards program. Obviously these awards are a long-standing tradition in the Atlanta home building industry, and they are the highest honor given in the local housing industry. OBIE award winners gain industry recognition and attract promotional opportunities. It really is a tremendous honor to be the recipient of even one award, so for Jim Chapman Communities to bring home five is an incredible honor.
The active adult builder won four gold awards for: Fifty-Plus Community of the Year for Brookhaven at Sugarloaf, Attached Community of the Year for Brookhaven at Sugarloaf, Best Amenity Package (500 units and above) for their Brookhaven of East Cobb community and Best Building Design, Attached Model, $275,000 to $374,999 for their Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge community.
