How long have you been in the industry? Almont Homes has been building new construction in the Atlanta area for over 50 years. J.C. White, founder and chairman of Almont Homes, began building homes in the 1960s with the simple belief that people wanted a quality home in a good community.
Tell us a little about your company and what you do. Almont Homes is known for building quality new construction in multiple price points to make homeownership achievable for its customers. We select brand name suppliers augmented by local trade partners to provide the best services in every home we build. Our homes are constructed by skilled craftsmen from a loyal subcontractor base, and our architectural planning and home designs are on trend and constantly improving. We are involved in every stage of community planning and construction, and we are passionate about investing in our communities for the long term. Improving the areas in which we build is important to us. Not long ago, many builders were leaving unfinished communities and defunct amenities. Almont was able to finish out over 20 of these struggling communities by building quality homes, maintaining amenities and funding their HOAs. We take pride in the communities we have created and in the quality homes we build.
Tell us an interesting/fun tidbit about your business. Almont Homes is a family owned and operated business and always has been. From the very start, Almont Homes has had family members in every aspect of the new home construction process. From land acquisition, to planning, designing, building, decorating, marketing and sales, family is there maintaining the tradition of quality and excellence. Almont Homes loves building communities, but we also have a soft spot for pets. Almont Homes supports Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, a non-profit volunteer-based organization dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats from high-kill shelters. Foster dogs can be found lounging at the office almost every day.
What has been the biggest accomplishment of your career? Throughout the last five decades, our growing success has allowed us to expand our building business throughout northeast Georgia. Almont Homes is proud to have reached the mark of 5,000 homes constructed in Georgia.
