About Us

For decades, individuals, couples and families have sought out the quality, design, and features of a Jim Chapman Communities home.  From custom-built, single family homes in desirable neighborhoods to amenity-rich active adult communities, Jim Chapman Communities has defined “home” for generations of homebuyers from young adults to retirees.  Jim Chapman Communities is more than a brand.  It’s a company built by Atlanta native Jim Chapman and his team of dedicated associates, whose commitment to excellence is evident in every home that bears his name.  Today, that focus on excellence extends to Jim Chapman Communities’ ranch-style apartment homes, which offer the same quality for which the company is known, combined with the flexibility a rental lifestyle provides.

Listening to customers is a hallmark of Jim Chapman Communities.  Recognizing a growing desire for smaller, maintenance-free, one-level living options, the company began creating open, spacious and light-filled master-on-main floor plans to be used in a series of age-targeted rental communities.  Jim Chapman has identified a new market segment – people who seek the financial and lifestyle flexibility of renting, along with the convenience of having professional, onsite 24-hour management and maintenance, as well as landscaping services.  The company has answered this demand with The Cottages, custom-crafted single-level apartment homes built in desirable locations and featuring resort-style amenities.  Apartment homes at The Cottages include the same energy-efficient appliances, custom finishes, wide doorways, luxurious baths, attached garages and outdoor living spaces you’d expect from a Jim Chapman Communities home, along with a true maintenance-free, lock-and-leave lifestyle.

The Cottages communities reflect decades of homebuilding expertise from Chapman’s team.  As a home builder and developer, Jim Chapman is deeply committed to the success of the U.S. home building industry, and has won numerous local, regional and national awards for his professional accomplishments, including being named “Builder of the Year” no less than three times.  He devotes a large portion of his time to serving the community and the industry, holding leadership positions with the National Association of Home Builders, the Home Builders Association of Georgia (President 2020-2021) and the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (President 2018).  He is the founding chairman of the ALL Home program, a voluntary statewide certification created by the Home Builders Association of Georgia to promote accessibility and universal design, and supports additional home-focused charities.
