Maurice Lester with J.W. Collection on Radio

Maurice Lester, vice president of construction with J.W. Collection, joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to discuss working alongside John Wieland. Lester joins host Carol Morgan to chat about influencing buyer decisions through branding, current community offerings and his recent appointment as the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association President (GAHBA) on the All About Real Estate segment.

Working with his father in South Georgia on building and remodeling projects, Lester began his construction career at a young age. After graduating from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Construction Management, Lester worked in commercial construction at Turner Construction, where he contributed to projects such as the Grady Hospital expansion and the Georgia Institute of Paper Science. Lester has over 30 years of metro Atlanta homebuilding experience dedicated to John Wieland companies.

Lester said, “I have worked all over metro Atlanta…I have had a great time and have worked with a lot of great customers!”

J.W. Collection is John Wieland’s boutique building company. The company concentrates on seven different neighborhoods, including well-known and upcoming projects. The J.W. Collection team is currently working on projects in Canton, Woodstock, Acworth and Dunwoody, as well as a neighborhood in Tucker off Lavista Road and a project on Collier Road in Atlanta.

With over 50 years of experience in the homebuilding industry, John Wieland has built over 30,000 homes in the metro Atlanta region. The company portfolio also includes beautifully constructed homes and neighborhoods in surrounding states, such as South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida. Lester expresses deep gratitude towards Wieland and feels humbled to work for an award-winning national builder.

Lester said, “Since I have been with John Wieland, I’ve witnessed what he has done in metro Atlanta – not only building neighborhoods but changing communities and cities!”

From first-time buyers to reoccurring customers, the John Wieland brand presents a status that buyers desire. With every John Wieland company, including the J.W. Collection, every aspect, from customer service to home design, is a top priority. From the floorplans to the design features, Lester and his team strive to deliver stunning homes and communities with thoughtful details and design choices.

A destination community, South on Main in Woodstock, sits on 82 acres with 255 closed homes. Prospective buyers will be excited to hear that it is zoned for approximately 575 units, so there are more opportunities to buy! Residents have access to unbeatable amenities such as a clubhouse, pool, playground, communal firepit, gathering shed, multiple dog parks and much more! Starting in the $600,000s, the neighborhood showcases townhomes and single-family homes.
