I am an unabashed fan of the lovely Ansley Brooks, Brock's top salesperson for 4 years, who has been diligently selling at Huff Heights (as best as possible), finishing sales out at Dupont Commons and helping buyers in all of their communities as far as I know. (Even the poorly placed "Eight on Carroll" community with it's provocative view of a mile wide rail yard)....
So West Highlands and Habershal at West Highlands are a triumph of potential. Their location represents one of Atlanta's greatest triumphs of urban renewal, because Perry Boulevard and Perry Homes were a nationally known urban blight back in the 70's and 80's.
I say a triumph of potential because the rest of the quality of life developments, retail amenities and other sexy Westside updates that were "coming soon" if you heard any Westside builder's pitch back in 2006-2007, are not here yet, especially in the immediate vicinity of West Highlands.
And from the looks of it, they will not be here for a while, unless you count the new Family Dollar store on Bankhead near English Avenue...
Prices are super attractive per square foot, Brock has managed to stay in business by being smart and running lean, and because they didn't get too big for their britches.
If this is what you want then there are no other comparable locations this close to downtown, really.
If you'd like to speak with the homeowner personally to answer any questions I'd be happy to arrange that. Let me know if I can help in any way.
100% in agreement with everything he said - especially the part about the "triumph of potential" for the area. The smart clients understand that nothing is anything until it's there - and even then it can quickly turn back into nothing. In short, don't believe anything about "plans for", if you do then hop in my truck and ride around with me while I appraise shells of homes 3-5 years old in areas "regentrifying" again and again.
Bottom line - you better use an agent and it better be Lee. If you don't you'd be foolish and you'll learn about that trap he's mentioned the hard and expensive way!
There are also some really strong incentives associated with buying in this community. Let me know if you would like more info. I would be happy to help you with this!
