Dear Chafin Communities,

We would like to take the time to thank all of the employees involved in our home buying process. The sales agent, Julie Giles, was very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout the contingency process. We felt confident in the contract she sold us. This was very important to us, as she was your representative for your homes. We would also like to say thanks to Eric Drooker. Eric was nice to deal with and we are very thankful for his quick thinking. It is good to know that there are good quality builders out there that will help their potential buyers. We also felt that everyone was upfront with us and we did not feel like anything was hidden from us. We very much appreciate the deal that was worked up to get us out of our old home and to make our dreams come true for our new home. Jason was also a pleasure to work with, as he explained the walk-through process and worked to get all of our issues completed before we closed. We are confident in the home that was built and we truly feel this is the best home out there, for the quality, value, and service that are provided. We would recommend a Chafin home to anyone. Thank you so much again for the hard work on our situation. We truly do appreciate it and we are glad to be Lanier Springs homeowners.

Thank you,

– Jason and Jessica Howe


Dear Mr. Chafin,

I would like to thank you for providing such a superb quality home, service, and value.  We have resided in your product for 2 years and are very pleased with our purchase.  Also, I feel it is very important to mention that your building superintendents continually provide superior service in all aspects.  I recently had the privilege of working with Mike Carnes concerning some erosion problems on our basement lot. He was a pleasure to work with, exhibited excellent communication and professionalism in resolving the issues.  Having had previous experience as a home buyer of another builder, I truly appreciate the quality of your service and home.  Yourself and your staff stand by your product and place value in customer satisfaction.  It is noticed by our family and appreciated greatly.

Sincerely yours,

– Elizabeth Nance


Dear Mr. Chafin,

It is our pleasure to write this letter to you.  We have owned 4 homes over the last 6 years from California to Virginia and this home is by far the best! 
When we were looking for a home in Georgia, we visited over 50 neighborhoods before making a decision.  Yorkshire Estates is very quiet, friendly and surrounded by larger upscale subdivisions.  After comparing location, quality, and customer service, it was clear that we wanted to live in a Chafin Communities neighborhood.

The builder has exceeded our expectations from beginning to present.  Every warranty item has been handled promptly and correctly. We have truly found our utopia.

Thank you Chafin Communities.

– Mozell & William Quarles


I love my Chafin home at the Stone Walk community in Gwinnett County.  The community is intimate and I feel like I can get to know my neighbors easily. Stone Walk is convenient to everything from grocery stores to shopping malls and access to the interstate is easy. I purchased my Chafin home in March of 2008, and it’s been the best decision ever.  The quality of construction is phenomenal and the interior details far out weigh other neighborhoods I considered.  The trim work alone is something you would find in a much higher price point. Everything was done to my satisfaction and the Chafin Communities team of builders and sales people were wonderful to work with.

Chafin Communities is an excellent company!   The quality of the house and the special features for the price range was great. We went under contract with a 3 week closing date. They were able to completely finish out the house in that 3 week period and closed on time. I would definitely buy another Chafin House.

Hello Mr. Chafin and Staff,

I want to say, I am a Retired U.S. Army, Disabled Veteran that has been searching for a new home for me and my family. I have looked all over North Georgia at many homes. Just to have find The Chafin homes on Riverbend at Mulberry Park Community and new homes being built 5 minutes from my home.

Upon looking at the new homes I met Kenny Giles the Realtor for the Chafin homes new subdivision. I was so impressed with his professionalism and dedication to the Buyers (me/us ). His attitude and ability to assist me, my wife and my realtor was beyond approach. Awesome Gentleman.

My current home which happens to be the first Ranch built in this subdivision was serviced and upgraded with the best of materials. The Chafin’s Staff, Zeb, Spencer and all the builders were completely willing and able to accommodate all my needs, questions and changes without hesitation. These homes are priced well below surrounding areas and build so much better.

On behalf of myself, my Family and new neighbors Thank you and God bless

As the first family to move into the Jacobs Creek subdivision, my wife and I were a bit apprehensive, yet excited at the same time, about how things would play out for us and our daughter. While we had a happy and pioneering feeling, and the solitude was relaxing, it was somewhat tempered. Would we be the ones to have to find out if there were any kinks in the construction, landscaping, etc.?

Well, we’re two-months in now, and we’re very pleased with our decision to purchase a home in the Jacobs Creek subdivision. Our home is on a basement and has features that we’ve really come to appreciate, like a spacious master suite with a large walk-in closet; laundry room that’s located upstairs (complete with an emergency overflow drainage for the washing machine- that doesn’t just collect water in an emergency, but actually drains to the outside); and a covered deck (that’s fairly cool even on the hottest summer days) that overlooks a secluded backyard. Our lot is beautifully landscaped and just the right size in order to not feel intimidated by potential yard work. We would (and already have) definitely recommend Jacobs Creek to anyone looking to buy a nice contemporary home, that’s competitively priced, and well constructed.

Our selection of a home within The Hills at Hamilton Mill actually began a little over a year prior to our closing on one of the Bentley floor plan options in late February 2017. Our decision to relocate to the Atlanta GA area from Minneapolis, MN began with the customary online searches and partnership with a realtor to guide us through the plethora of options available across the Atlanta metropolitan area. Although we were open to any floor plan and community that “caught our now seasoned eye (i.e. benefactors of multiple corporate moves to over half of dozen states),” our core requirements were new (or almost new) construction, plenty of space, and close proximity to a golf course!

After months of at times casual, but mostly intense searching that began south of the city in Henry County (i.e. McDonough, GA) we decided to lease a home for a year in Buford, GA due to its proximity to the myriad of retail entities at and/or near the Mall of Georgia! Our realtor who helped us secure the lease on the home in Buford, GA remained actively engaged with us throughout the year as we narrowed our search for the “perfect home in the perfect location” to suit our discerning needs!

I give all the credit to my wife for not only finding the Chafin Communities, but remaining steadfast in her devotion to the selection of a specific floor plan within The Hills at Hamilton Mill despite my concern of sloped elevation of the neighborhood. I was initially impressed with the construction quality and standard features included in model we selected; as I continued to research the home and Chafin Communities I was further impressed with the construction (2-10 Home Buyers) and energy / comfort (Right Choice) warranties!

The overall home purchasing process was “uneventful;” although the majority of the finishes (i.e. flooring, painting, and lighting) were already selected when we went under contract, the Sales and Interior Design team graciously entertained our desired minor cosmetic changes without “breaking the bank” and delaying the close date!

The most important part of the home buying experience for me is the level of “customer service” you receive after the monies are exchanged at closing. I am sure that every builder desires to build the perfect home free of faults, but this seldom occurs in new construction. The Sales team and Construction staff continue to be exceptional in there servicing of our requests to effect minor repairs and have even offered their tireless assistance in resolving matters beyond their scope of control.

I STRONGLY encourage anyone desiring a well built home in an appealing neighborhood to add the Chafin Communities to your short list of builders to consider – they will not disappoint you and their product should appeal to your price point, your floor plan and space needs, and location requirements!

The process of building my home with Chafin started with my husband and I choosing our lot.  I found the agent on duty to be helpful, attentive, knowledgeable and friendly.  Throughout the process, the agent and other Chafin employees were very responsive to my concerns.  That made me confident the final product would be exactly what we want.  I love my home and it is beautiful.  I had a very good experience and I would definitely recommend Chafin to my friends and family.  The process was smooth and painless.

Dear Chafin Communities,

Our search for our first home began in late 2016 and we saw many homes by many builders. We are very detail-oriented so we pay very close attention to the layout, the quality of workmanship, the attention to detail by the builders and the customer service given. Through all the homes we visited, we were very disappointed with the quality of workmanship and attention to detail by those builders thus we were not willing to settle for less, so our search continued into 2017.

When we found Chafin Communities (Arlington Point – The Estates), we met their Real Estate Agent, Gary Moran, and we must say he was a great pleasure to work with. Gary exuded a welcoming spirit, positive attitude, a great personality and integrity in his professionalism, immediately making us comfortable in working with him and wanting to see more of what Chafin Communities had to offer. We were immediately drawn to the all-brick homes in this community and when we walked into the first home, it felt like home and we knew we had found the right house. The attention to detail and quality of workmanship was far more superior compared to previous homes we visited by other builders!

The great service we received continued beyond Gary as we went into our walk-through with Jamie before Closing. Jamie was very attentive and helpful throughout the walk-through, had a great attitude and personality, and made sure we got everything we needed for us to feel comfortable with Closing.

We closed on our home in April 2017 and we must say the great service and quality of work was a breath of fresh air! We would definitely refer people to Chafin Communities and we thank you all for the great experience!

-Sincerely, Tyesha & Jesse Boothe

I want to take this time to do a review for Chafin Builders. I am a proud homeowner of a new home built by Chafin Builders. I have been thoroughly satisfied with the overall experience that I have with this builder. From my initial contact to the closing date, they have exceeded my expectations along each phase of the buying process. I am also very satisfied with the builder’s agent Gary Moran. He is extremely helpful and is willing to do everything to help you along the way. He is a great person to deal with and will work with the builder to make sure you are satisfied with your home purchase. Overall, I am happy with the quality, value, and workmanship of my home and I have since referred my family members to buy a home from them as well. Great customer service all around! Ask for Gary Moran.
