Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick open this week’s show with a conversation about this year’s Community of the Year winners from the 32nd Annual OBIE Awards, which are hosted by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council. These prestigious awards give honor to excellence in building, marketing, remodeling and personal achievement within the Atlanta real estate industry.

This year, four Community of the Year awards were handed out. The attached community winner is The Preserve at Fischer Mansion, which is located on the historic Fischer Mansion property in Atlanta. The mixed use community award went to West Highlands in Atlanta from Brock Built Homes, while the master-planned community award was received by Sterling on the Lake in Flowery Branch. Finally, Cresswind at Lake Lanier was named the 50+ community of the year.

Our next guest is Colby Henson who is the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Red Oak Homes. Red Oak Homes has been building homes in Cobb County for more than 15 years, and they have several new communities planned for the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013.

For the past few years, Red Oak Homes has concentrated their efforts on buying up communities that are bank owned, going in and finishing them up and then selling the remaining homes. A majority of their communities they have been working in are located in Smyrna including Grady Manor, Cottages at Parkview Village, Medlin Place, Spring Street Village and Concord Lake Village. They are also starting work in two new West Cobb communities priced from the $200,000s, Vineyard Place East and Bruster Manor.
