SR Homes Team

About Us

SR Homes is the leading top new home builder in Atlanta, offering a variety of communities in the most desirable locations. Our commitment to service, craftsmanship, and vision for community are the core qualities that make us the builder focused on YOU.

At SR Homes, we design our homes for livability and longevity. We incorporate distinctive exteriors, gracious interior spaces, and outdoor living areas that reflect the way modern families and individuals live in their homes today. Our homes are built with superior-quality materials by the industry’s top craftsmen. The SR on-site building team oversees each home during the construction process, from the time the concrete is poured to the final walkthrough, to ensure every new home meets our high standards of quality.

Over the years, we have found that it is the details that make a house a home. When you walk into an SR Home, the difference is evident in the home’s sound construction, upscale features, and designer finishes. You will notice our attention to detail extends into our communities as well. Each of our unique, architecturally themed communities is specifically developed with the best vision for the land in mind. We choose our locations based on proximity to community meccas and award-winning schools. This, combined with our exceptional award-wining plans and impressive options, rounds out our recipe for what we consider the ultimate fulfillment of a Dream Home.

We invite you to tour our homes and see the SR difference. Discover thoughtful design, quality construction, and finishes that make each home special—both inside and out.
