Monte Hewett with Monte Hewett Homes

President Monte Hewett with Monte Hewett Homes joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast. He sits down with the President of Denim Marketing and Show Host Carol Morgan to discuss the company’s rise in mixed-use development and currently selling opportunities.

At just 16 years old, Hewett began working with a focus on framing and placing the first nail in his celebrated homebuilding career. He attended Colorado State University for the construction management program and, after graduating, moved to Dallas, Texas, in 1984. In Texas, it was typical for a builder to be production-oriented, unlike in Georgia. Over time, he moved to better locations and built better products, eventually landing in the Atlanta market.

In the 1990s, Hewett decided to be an infill builder. During this time, he observed markets in North Buckhead, Smyrna, Vinings, and, during the recession, Decatur, Roswell and Alpharetta to get a clear picture of the local demographic. He noted that many homebuyers were attached to the idea of a “place” and the amenities and walkability offered in that location. Locations such as Avalon in Alpharetta or downtown Roswell provide walkability, green space and all the tools necessary to construct a sense of place for homebuyers to call home through the generations.

By the year 2010, Hewett was mainly focusing on creating mixed-use developments to meet this market need. His first project was Palisades at Milton Park in Alpharetta, followed by Avalon and Halcyon in Alpharetta, Madison Yards in Reynoldstown and more. Hewett noted that after the recession, it took more work to replicate the locations and prices he secured and had to switch strategies. The company shifted its focus on product pricing to create work-live-play communities that are more cost-efficient.

Hewett said, “It’s a big accomplishment to be able to go and change the culture of the company and emphasize time and budgets. It feels good.”

Monte Hewett Homes is currently working on Downing Park near Emory, a collection of 13 townhomes off Ponce de Leon Avenue priced from $2 million. Hewett also shared that he recently closed on a mixed-use project called Water Park, which is coming soon to Watkinsville, located 15 minutes outside of Athens. The project will feature 21 townhomes, 46 single-family opportunities and 20,000+ square feet of office, retail and food and beverage space. The community will also feature a baseball and basketball training facility.

The builder is also currently selling townhomes starting at $959,900 at Interlock in West Midtown, townhomes starting in the high $500,000s at The Harman in East Atlanta and single-level flats and two-story condominium homes starting in the high $600,000s at Findley Row in Alpharetta.
