First homebuilder in GA to receive coveted distinction

ALPHARETTA, GA, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2021 / -- Chathambilt Homes has received the industry’s prestigious Southern Living Custom Home Builder of the Year Award which was presented at the annual Southern Living Home Summit on February 23-24. This is the first time a Georgia homebuilder has received this coveted distinction.

“My Dad, Howard, would have turned 100 this year and would have been so proud to see what his company and family have accomplished since his founding of the company in 1948,” said David Chatham, president of Chathambilt Homes.

Chathambilt is also a founding member of the Southern Living Custom Builder mentoring program which was established to drive diversity in the custom home building industry by providing opportunities and support to college students. The partnership is highlighted in the March issue of Southern Living.

On the heels of a record-setting year in 2020, Chathambilt Homes, the award-winning residential builder known for its legacy brand of Chatham family businesses, hit the ground running in 2021 with several projects pushing toward completion in Atlanta’s northern arc. Among them are new, high-end custom communities in Milton, Alpharetta and Cumming, as well as Hawks Ridge, a luxury golf club community in Ball Ground, and many custom homes on privately owned estates.

Chatham’s newest community, Baxley, is a small enclave of Southern Living custom home designs nestled in the company’s hometown of Alpharetta.

“Baxley is a gated community featuring seven custom luxury homes designed to maximize life in downtown Alpharetta,” said Myles Chatham, director of marketing for the Chatham family of businesses. “We are working closely with award-winning designers to create meaningful designs for today’s homeowners in live, work and play communities and provide the legendary craftsmanship that defines a Chathambilt Home.”

Now in its third generation, Chathambilt Homes has built more than 5,500 luxury estates and developed more than 150 neighborhoods in north metro Atlanta.

The Chatham Company, a sister company of Chathambilt Homes, assists people across north Atlanta buy and sell their homes. Statistics show that the company is outperforming the market by more than 44 percent in closed units, outperforming the market by more than 29 percent in closed volume and sellers who choose to list with The Chatham Company have a 35 percent higher chance to get their home sold than listing it with another agent.

In 2020 the Chatham family of businesses received a significant number of accolades for its long-standing commitment to quality.

“We are honored to be recognized for excellence across our family of businesses,” said Gabe Chatham, “and very proud of the recent Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association’s (GAHBA) OBIE Award for Best New Home.” Gabe Chatham served as 2020 president of the GAHBA and led the organization through an especially challenging but rewarding year.

Other top industry awards include the Atlanta Parade of Homes’ Best Kitchen and Modern Luxury Magazine’s Best Homebuilder. In addition, Gabe was named to the prestigious Who’s Who in Residential Real Estate by the Atlanta Business Chronicle and the company was a frequent contributor to Atlanta’s Best New Homes TV show and Atlanta Building News.

At the close of 2020, David Chatham, president of Chatham Neighborhoods and visionary of the Chatham Family of Businesses, who served on CoreLogic’s board of directors as well as its predecessor firm, First American Corporation, stepped down after 31 years of service. In recognition of his talent and continued commitment to the industry, David was recently appointed Life Director of the GAHBA.
