Our Awards

BY CHAFIN COMMUNITIES


Year after year, Chafin Communities has proudly received many building awards and recognition for our quality construction, design innovation, warranty, and industry achievements.

Chafin Communities always strives very hard to build amazing homes, so to be recognized for these efforts is a wonderful highlight on our journey. The most sought after awards that dominate the home building industry are the 2-10 Platinum Builder Awards and the OBIE Awards.


The OBIE awards are the highest level of recognition given by the Atlanta housing industry and Chafin Communities has received over 80 Obie Awards since 1997.

Each year, the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association presents OBIE Awards for major achievement in building, marketing, and remodeling. The OBIE Awards, previously called the Professionalism Awards, began in 1980 and has grown throughout the years to now feature more than 125 building, remodeling, marketing, and personal achievement categories.

“We are so proud to be honored by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and earning this standard of excellence every year. Being recognized by our peer group is a very significant accomplishment and reflects the priority we place on quality, style, and innovation.” – Eric Chafin


The Platinum Builder Award is a national award given to approximately 50 home builders annually out of nearly 10,000 members.

This prestigious award is bestowed to a very small number of builders. The Platinum Builder Award recognizes accomplished builders who demonstrate leadership in new construction with Innovations in design, marketing strategy, and construction technology.

This recognition represents our company’s continued commitment to consistently build quality homes with little to no warranty issues. If a warranty issue does arise, addressing it in a timely manner is our top priority.
