Steps To Your Dream

Choose from an inventory of prime, buildable lots located in Atlanta’s popular intown neighborhoods or put our in-house lot acquisition team to work to uncover a hidden gem property. We have top options across Atlanta’s sought-after neighborhoods. We have top options across Atlanta’s sought-after neighborhoods, Buckhead, Brookhaven, Sandy Springs, Chastain Park, Ansley Park, Morningside and Virginia-Highland to name a few. Tell us your desired area and we’ll get to work.

2 Bring us your wishlist: home style & features

Do you like classic Georgian, transitional or modern? Do you want a large kitchen or a playroom for the kids? Whatever preferences you have in architectural style, luxury features or design, you’ll work with the skilled architects of Harrison Design to identify your wants and needs and create a home design that fits your lifestyle, taste and budget. Interior Designers will assist you specifying finishes, help you make selections from luxury purveyors who offer special Dream Home Program discounts, and coordinate details with your builder.

3 Tailored

Both preferred lenders NorthPointe Bank and Regions Mortgage offers mortgage loans tailored to your needs, including products such as the “One-Time-Closing Construction to Permanent Loans.” You’ll save time and money with one closing, one set of closing costs, and one loan—completed before construction begins.

4 Custom Build
With Confidence

Prior to closing on your new construction loan, you’ll approve a builder and sign-off on their construction contract and build budget and approve a final set of plans as provided by the Architect. Builders offer “fixed cost” budgets that, when coupled with proper project monitoring of contract requirements and the collection of lien and claim waivers, help homeowners build with confidence. Approval of a builder and banker with whom you are comfortable with building and financing your custom home is paramount.
