Another year has passed by the wayside and it has been a monumental one for Traton Homes! In 2021, we celebrated our 50th anniversary in the Atlanta homebuilding industry. It was an incredible year filled with successes and challenges, and we’d like to take a look back at all the ways our team came together in 2021.
From closing out and opening new communities to celebrating accolades and giving back to the community, here are a few of the highlights:
In 2021, we closed out two single-family detached home communities in Smyrna: The Grove at Adams Pond and Logans Walk. We also completed Phase One of Edgemoore at Milford in Marietta with 94 townhomes sold. As we enter the new year, we are approaching closeout at two of our Cobb County 55+ communities: Courtyards at Camden in Acworth and Courtyards at Ebenezer in Marietta.
We also introduced fantastic new 55+ communities to Marietta in 2021 – Courtyards at Ebenezer and Kirk Ridge. Many more new communities are on the way in 2022, including Haven at Stanley in Kennesaw, High Parc at Smyrna in Smyrna and Courtyards at Hickory Flat in Canton!
Traton Homes also expanded its horizons in 2021 by opening a new division in Florida! We’re excited to be joined by our new Florida Division President Mike Burgess who is guiding our expansion into the Sunshine State. We are delighted to offer our services to Florida buyers and deliver beautiful homes in this desirable area. We’re building new homes along the panhandle throughout Bay and Walton counties. Cessna Village, our first community, is coming soon to the sought-after Santa Rosa Beach area with 19 stunning coastal homes.
In 2021, we also garnered several awards that serve as a testament to our commitment to homebuilding excellence. We were voted as the Best Builder in Cobb County for the second time by Cobb Life magazine’s readers. We are now an eight-time winner of the GuildMaster Award for outstanding customer service. Traton Homes was also recognized at this year’s 41st annual OBIE Awards for Sales Team of the Year and Best Building Design. We are thrilled to add these honors to the nearly 60 OBIE awards that we have received over the years!
As we celebrated our 50th anniversary, we also found opportunities to contribute to worthwhile causes. For every new home we closed in 2021, our team gave back by making a donation to HomeAid Atlanta. This nonprofit organization operates with a mission to help families and individuals experiencing homelessness create a new life by providing safe and dignified housing. We are proud to give our support to HomeAid Atlanta and incorporate the organization into our anniversary celebration!
We also celebrated a fantastic 18-year partnership with Cobb Christmas this year! Every year, we host a toy drive, and we partner with the organization for their annual Stuff-A-Bus event. Cobb Christmas works to aid low-income working families during the holidays by providing toys and food. This holiday season, our efforts were an incredible success! We raised over $15,000 to purchase toys for families in need, and we filled a Cobb Community Transit Bus to the brim with hundreds of toys. We couldn’t have accomplished this feat without the support of our employees, vendors and the generous local community!
This year was wonderful, and we can’t wait to see what comes next in 2022! We hope you follow along with us as we continue helping homeowners discover ‘Altogether More.’ Browse our new homes located throughout Georgia and Florida by clicking here.
