Posted on: June 24th, 2016
Active adults who are looking for a beautiful new home community in popular South Forsyth County, conveniently close to Atlanta as well as Lake Lanier and the north Georgia mountains, appreciate the well-designed options that renowned homebuilder Jim Chapman offers in his newest 55+ community, The Overlook at Old Atlanta.

The successful Atlanta-based developer and homebuilder, who was recently elected to serve as the 2016 Chair of the NAHB 55+ Housing Industry Council, is eager to share his vision for active adult living with 55+ homebuyers, and has started in-person walking tours with potential clients.
“When I get to explain the lay-out and topography of the community, and answer any questions that may pop up, our buyers understand. They get it. They can feel it, see it and imagine themselves living the good life here at The Overlook,” according to Chapman who shares that 25 homes are already under contract since The Overlook opened for pre-sale in April 2016. “This initial sales success is a real compliment and an affirmation of what our customers expect of our brand.”
