Jennifer Landers, vice president of operations at Newland Communities, joins host Todd Schnick and co-host Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate edition of Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio.

Landers, a seasoned real estate veteran, works with Newland Communities’ many master-planned communities around Atlanta, most currently at Sterling on the Lake, located in Flowery Branch near Lake Lanier Islands, Chateau Élan and Mall of Georgia.

Construction in Sterling on the Lake is approaching the halfway mark of their assembly of 2,000 homes, ranging from the $200,000s to the $700,000s. Sterling on the Lake offers a variety of home options from single-family homes and townhomes to lake view homes and newly released, one-acre home sites. These many options are rare to see within a master-planned community these days, according to Landers.

“Many of our residents tell us that living at Sterling on the Lake is kind of like living at a resort,” said Landers. “You’re on vacation every day because we have so many amenities within the community.”

Some amenities include:

  • 75 acres of lake for boating and fishing
  • Miles of trails and parks
  • Four-and-a-half acre linear park with swings, a playfield and a fire pit
  • Multiple clubhouses, pools and tennis centers
  • A water park
  • A children’s tree house
  • Onsite activities director

“I guess the question is, what amenities DON’T you have,” joked Schnick. “That answer will take about two seconds.”

Sterling on the Lake also hosts a variety of events at their facilities such as the annual “Splash Bash” in May. The DJ keeps the party going with music, trivia, limbo and other interactive games at this yearly cookout celebrating the opening of their pools.

Other events include the Fireworks Festival in July, the Harvest Balloon Festival in the fall, fishing tournaments, an annual golf tournament, pet clinics, recycling initiatives and concerts at the community park that are open to the public and the surrounding communities.

For those interested in joining the Sterling on the Lake community, it is free to spend the day with a club or activity and get a taste of what life on the lake would be like. Homes from Newland Communities are available from all price points, whether you are looking for a quick move-in home or want to start from scratch.
