After receiving his MBA from UNC-Chapel Hill and doing an apprenticeship with a national homebuilder, Jim Chapman Jr. began building custom homes in 1998 in the Buckhead area. Together with his father, Atlanta architect Jim Chapman Sr., they formed Jim Chapman Communities in 2005 to apply to the active adult market the quality and service standards Chapman developed while building luxury homes in the Buckhead area. An Atlanta-based active adult builder and developer, Jim Chapman Communities remains a vibrant local residential development and building company focused on redefining active adult living within the greater Atlanta market.
Chapman and his team have scoured the country to learn more about what active adults need and want in their new home. Their floor plans and home features reflect these desires: zero-step entries, bonus spaces, outdoor living spaces and all with less maintenance. As the current Chairman of Board of the Greater Atlanta HBA’s 50 Plus Housing Council, Chapman has been asked to speak at numerous homebuilding events throughout the southeast to share his expertise in building for the active adult market.
Homes built by Jim Chapman Communities give active adults the luxury, comfort and value they seek and deserve. Features in these homes include elegant details like traditional Southern porches, hardwood flooring, custom trim, 16-foot vaulted ceilings, great rooms with gas fireplaces and master suites with walk-in closets. Designed for entertaining, these spacious homes include open gourmet kitchens with breakfast bars, state-of-the-art appliances and beautiful custom cabinets. Keeping the comfort and accessibility of active adults in mind, Chapman’s homes feature wider doorways, ample space in baths and zero-step entries from the garage. These features allow Chapman’s customers to age in place, maybe never needing to move again.
Having won three Community of the Year OBIE awards over the last several years including numerous house design accolades from the NAHB Best of 50+ Housing Awards, Jim Chapman Communities is pleased to offer six active adult communities with ranch-style, low maintenance homes in some of metro Atlanta’s most desirable locations including Douglas, Gwinnett, Cobb, Fulton and Forsyth counties. Most importantly, Jim Chapman Communities will be opening several more new active communities soon in fabulous sought after locations.
We were among the first residents to move into Brookhaven at Sugarloaf and we have enjoyed watching the community develop and grow. In our search, we looked at many active adult communities around the Atlanta metro area. What was so appealing about Brookhaven at Sugarloaf was its close proximity to I-85, restaurants, shopping and to our families. A few, of the many aspects that we are enjoying about living at Brookhaven at Sugarloaf, are the single story floor plan, the professional, maintenance free landscaping, the pool and clubhouse with exercise equipment, events planned for the community by an activities director and making new friends. A "hats off" goes to the Jim Chapman Communities who have been very open-minded and receptive to input from the "over 50" home owners. - Gail & Jon Colcord
Mr. Chapman, First of all it was nice meeting you. I am very happy with my home in this very nice community. I want to thank you, Tom Olson and your staff for giving all of us a terrific Grand Opening Party in the Club House. Your staff did an outstanding job; well organized and very good food and drink. Great music as well. I would also like to point out several other people who have been very helpful and professional; Bruce, Karen & Mike. If you are in the area you have an open invitation to stop by my home. - Sal F. Iacono
Moving to this community was probably one of the best decisions we have made in a long time. After nearly 44 years in our home, it was a move we weighed very carefully. After looking several other places, we just fell in love with the location and features of these units. We love our neighbors and the fellowship we have enjoyed with pot luck dinners, game nights, trips, etc. The management group has always been responsive to our requests, and after just celebrating the anniversary of our first year here, we love the carefree lifestyle. - Lloyd & Floreen Chambers
