Preserve Communities Unveils New Home Building Company

Crafting Personalized, Quality Homes, Company to Launch in the Virginia Community of Bay Creek

(ALPHARETTA, Ga.) – Preserve Communities – a leader in thoughtful real estate development – has formed a new home building arm, Preserve Homes & Neighborhoods. The newest venture of the growing real estate developer specializes in crafting personalized quality homes for the discerning buyer within Preserve Communities’ current and planned developments.

These new luxury homes will offer homebuyers the unique combination of easy, turnkey construction with the benefits of living in purposefully developed lifestyle communities. Consistent with the manner in which Preserve Communities’ developments are designed, the homes will blend seamlessly into each local community. They will reflect a traditional style with timeless appeal and provide all the conveniences that buyers want.

“Now more than ever, open space, scenic views and quality of living has become a larger priority to homeowners,” says Jeff Coggin, president and CEO of Preserve Homes & Neighborhoods. “The formation of our new building company will enable Preserve Communities to meet this market demand by applying our thoughtful community development approach to home building while making the process as stress-free as possible for our buyers.”

The company will begin its efforts at Preserve Communities’ Bay Creek property located on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, where demand has surged in recent months resulting in substantial year-over-year growth in property sales. Subsequent expansions are planned to take place on a rolling basis from early 2021 through 2022 at Albemarle Plantation in Hertford, N.C., New Hampstead in Savannah, Ga., and East Argent and West Argent in Bluffton, S.C.

While the building company is new, its leadership team brings over 100 years of collective experience in building quality homes and developing lifestyle communities.
