    Sales Manager Don Lee with Peachtree Residential joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to provide an inside look at popular communities, new developments and more. Lee joins host Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate segment. Involved in new home sales and construction for over 35 years, Lee has been associated with Peachtree Residential for more than 30 years of his professional career. A builder for 16 years, Lee has incredible building experience and can appreciate what Peachtree Residential does particularly well. A family-run business, the company is headed by one local owner and backed by many loyal employees. Lee said, “I'm not an oddity within Peachtree Residential. There's over 10 of us that have been with the company for over 15 to 25 years.” Started in 1988 in metro Atlanta, Peachtree Residential Founder Dave Borreson saw a need for a particular niche in the homebuilding business – affordable, higher-end homes. Resilient through the years of market dips and peaks, the company produces homes in metro Atlanta, primarily on the city's north side. With numerous completed communities in the rearview, there are many upcoming developments to look forward to, including 100 new homes slated for this year. Handling sales at Garden Park in Forsyth County, Lee shared that 24 of the 28 available homes have sold in less than a year. Markedly in the Garden Park community, a flex space on the ground floor is at the top of many homebuyer wish lists. A space to fit all needs, flex rooms are ideal for home offices, guest rooms, media rooms and more. Another trend growing in popularity, slab homes have surpassed basement homes in attractiveness as homebuyers continue to evolve. With just four opportunities remaining, Garden Park in West Forsyth County has a Longwood plan, two Harvard plans slated to start construction and the model home available for best and final offers. A part of an existing community developed by SR Homes Peachtree Residential is building homes in  The Grove at Montebello in Cumming.  These homes showcase three bedrooms and 2,400 square feet of living space, with six out of seven boasting a basement. The well-designed, open plans are situated on beautiful lots in a community with fantastic amenity options. Construction is expected to begin this year with two homes available for sale from the mid-$700,000s and four lots currently under construction.  Waterside at River Glen in Suwanee is a Peachtree Residential exclusive section of an existing community. With several lots featuring direct access to the Chattahoochee River, a great deal of inventory priced from the $700,000s to low $800,000s will be available for sale later this year. Lee said, “People have loved [this community] and knowing that nothing will be built behind them.” Tune in to the full interview above to learn more about Peachtree Residential or visit www.PeachtreeResidential.com.

    163: What You and I Need Most

    You Were Made for This

    Play Episode Listen Later Jun 22, 2022 20:34


    Three events in today's news from around the world remind me of what you and I need most in the troubled times in which we live. It's the subject of today's show where I talk about a relationship thread that connects all three of these stories: The horrific murder of 19 fourth graders in Uvalde, Texas Celebration of Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee in England Anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France 78 years ago Keep listening because you'll hear where to find what you and I need most in today's world. What's true here in June 2022 as I record this will be true in 2052 and every year following. It's part of the human condition. The Uvalde, Texas shooting I'll start with an article Peggy Noonan wrote in the Wall Street Journal shortly after the shooting in Uvalde, Texas. It's a blistering piece of fire-breathing anger at the police on the scene who stood around for 45 minutes outside the school while the killer inside gunned down children in their classroom. The failure of the police to storm the building to take out the murderer is contemptible, says Noonan. Young children were calling 911 from their cell phones while the police did nothing. They called for help but none came. One of the things I appreciate about Peggy Noonan is her ability to look at events in their larger context and to find meaning in them that goes beyond the immediate. She ends her article with the following: “I close with a thought tugging around in my brain. I think I am seeing a broad and general decline in professionalism in America, a deterioration of our pride in concepts like rigor and excellence. Jan. 6 comes and law enforcement agencies are weak and unprepared and the U.S. Capital falls to a small army of mooks [stupid or incompetent person]. Afghanistan and the departure that was really a collapse, all traceable to the incompetence of diplomatic and military leadership. It's like everyone's forgotten the mission. “I'm not saying, ‘Oh, America was once so wonderful and now it's not.' I'm saying we are losing old habits of discipline and pride in expertise - of peerlessness. There was a kind of American gleam. If the world called on us - in business, the arts, the military, diplomacy, science - they knew they were going to get help. The grown-ups had arrived with their deep competence. The larger meaning found in the Texas tragedy “America now feels more like the people who took the Expedited Three Month Training Course and got the security badge and went to work and formed an affinity group to advocate for change. A people who love to talk, endlessly, about sensitivity, yet aren't sensitive enough to save children bleeding out on the other side of the door. “I fear that as people we're becoming not only increasingly unimpressive but increasingly unlovable. “My God, I've never seen a country so in need of a hero.” - Peggy Noonan, June 4, 2022, Wall Street Journal, page A15 Let that last line sink in for a minute, My God, I've never seen a country so in need of a hero. It's Noonan's take on what you and I need most right now. I'm going to come back to this in a little bit. The second event - Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee In contrast to the implications of the murders in Texas, we had the Platinum Jubilee celebration in England for Queen Elizabeth II. It was to honor her for the 70 years she's been the queen, and for becoming the longest-ruling monarch in British - and European - history. Is there anyone who doesn't like Queen Elizabeth? I saw a few TV clips of the Jubilee event and all the commentators talked about the hundreds of thousands of Brits who turned out for this 4-day celebration to cheer on the queen. In watching this, I couldn't help but think of Peggy Noonan's quote about America, “I've never seen a country so in need of a hero.” Could it be that Queen Elizabeth is the hero England needs? She doesn't have any political power. She can't set polices for the country. Yet she he is so dearly loved . Why? My sense is that she is stability personified in the otherwise unstable world we live in. She is a continuation of the monarchy that's been part of British history for over a thousand years. The Queen's appeal Her appeal is even more winsome when you consider the dysfunction of the Royal Family. There's Prince Charles and his messy divorce with the oh-so-popular Princess Diana and his related affair with Camila. There's the scandal with the queen's other son, Prince Andrew. And of course, the current mess with Harry and Megan throwing the Royal Family under the bus. Yet Queen Elizabeth stays out of the public fray of it all. You've got to admire a queen like this. The family she presides over isn't all that different than some of our own families. Is someone like Queen Elizabeth what you and I need most right now? Before I answer, there's one more worldwide event to consider. One that connects with the Peggy Noonan article about the shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee. 78th Anniversary of D-Day This month, here in 2022, marks the 78th anniversary of D-Day, the invasion of Normandy, which marked the beginning of the end of World War II. This year's anniversary had a different twist to it that I had not seen or heard of before. Several years ago, in rare bi-partisan support, Congress approved an addition to the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C. Construction will begin next month, in July 2022, on the D-Day Prayer Project. On June 6, 1944, at At 9:57 pm, President Franklin Roosevelt addressed the nation on radio, announcing the D-Day invasion that began earlier that day. He encouraged everyone to join him in prayer about the invasion.  It will be added to the WWII memorial. It's not too long, so I will read it to you. It was what the world needed most on June 6, 1944. And it is certainly what you and I need most now. As I read the prayer, look past the specifics of that war-time need, and instead think about the appeal to a person outside of ourselves to meet our needs when things are looking terrible. That's the point. Here's the prayer: FDR's prayer My fellow Americans: Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far. And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer: Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity. Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith. They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph. They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest-until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violences of war. For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home. Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom. Pray for ourselves And for us at home - fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas - whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them - help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice. Many people have urged that I call the Nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts. Give us strength, too - strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces. And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be. Give us faith And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; and faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose. With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil. Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen. What you and I need Most Let's return now to the three events I mentioned in the beginning and consider the theme they all touch on. The elementary school killing of 19 young children in Uvalde, Texas Queen Elizabeth and her Platinum Jubilee celebration in England Anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France The thread that ties these events together is the need for someone or something outside of ourselves to get us out of a mess, to give us a sense of stability that things are going to be okay, no matter what. Like the trapped 4th graders in that Uvalde Texas classroom, we all need someone to rescue us. In our case, to rescue us from ourselves. We need stability in our lives. We need someone like Queen Elizabeth who has been giving 70 years of her life to serving her subjects, with no intention of stopping. Someone so deeply committed to us. Someone beyond ourselves. We need God like the allied forces needed on D-Day. Like FDR who called upon us to pray to defeat that which seeks to destroy us. So what does all this mean for YOU? It is easier to understand how we need to be saved from forces outside of ourselves like evil people. It's harder to understand how at times we need to be saved from ourselves. What we need most, in either case, is Jesus. In the Gospel of John, chapter 6, some of the disciples of Jesus begin to desert him. It prompts Jesus to say to his 12 apostles, “Are you going to leave, too?” Peter replies and says in effect, Where else would we go? You are the only one who gives life.” Here's the main takeaway I hope you remember from today's episode We all need to be rescued from something. Often it's to be rescued from ourselves. So the rescue must come from someone outside of us. Thankfully, what we need most is right in front of us. Just look and you'll find Jesus there. Ready to rescue. As always, I'd love to hear any thoughts you have about today's episode. Closing In closing, I hope your thinking was stimulated by today's show, enough to call upon him to calm your heart in light of the troubled times in which we live. To ask him to save you from your fears, idiosyncrasies, and dysfunctions whatever they may be. And to replace them with the peace only he can provide. For when you do, it will help you experience the joy of your relationship with God. Because after all, You Were Made for This. Well, that's it for today. Please tell others about this podcast if you think it would be interesting and helpful to them. And don't forget to spread a little relational sunshine around the people you meet this week.

    Fletcher Building is being asked not to enforce its GIB plasterboard trademarks for at least a year to help ease the supply crisis. Fletcher controls about 95 percent of the plasterboard market and holds several trademarks protecting certain colour shades exclusively for its GIB products. The Construction Minister's written to the company asking it to publicly state it will not take action against anyone breaching its trademarks, opening the way for more plasterboard imports. Megan Woods also announced a taskforce of industry representatives to trouble shoot supply problems. In a statement, Fletchers said it has issued non-exclusive royalty-free licences to 10 parties to use the colour system to help them bring in plasterboard. And there is nothing stopping other plasterboard manufacturers from using a different shade of blue, mauve or green should they chose to do so.

    On today's show we're talking about a question that is on everyone's mind. Construction prices are rising. Interest rates are rising. Not only are rates rising, but it looks like lender liquidity is shrinking. Rents are rising, but who knows for how long? Salaries are rising for now, but could flatten or even decline if we experience an economic downturn. Will that apartment project be affordable when it's completed in two years from now? An economic recession seems all but certain. The question is, how do you underwrite a project in these market conditions when so many of the critical variables seem to be so uncertain? I just came back from the 20th annual Investor Summit on Sand and these questions and more were the topic of seemingly every conversation whether it was over breakfast, or dinner, or late at night.

    National Broadband Ireland, the company delivering the National Broadband Plan, has announced that the total construction workforce delivering the roll-out has now reached over 1,500, with a 25% increase in workers in the first half of 2022. The increase includes 80 additional construction workers deployed to the NBP roll-out as a result of NBI's new partnership with Gaeltec Utilities. NBI Chairman, David McCourt said: “The National Broadband Plan is a transformational infrastructure project which will ultimately see Ireland become one of the most connected countries in Europe for fibre broadband. Not only will this open up economic opportunities in the future, but it is also leading to investment and job creation in the regions right now. With 80 additional Gaeltec workers now commencing work in County Wicklow, a workforce of over 1,500 is now deployed to the NBP, showing real momentum in the roll-out.” NBI Deployment CEO, TJ Malone said: “NBI is moving to expand our capacity by adding an additional construction partner as momentum in the roll-out of the NBP grows. We are delighted to be working with Gaeltec, our second Kilkenny-based partner. This additional capacity will help us to ensure more premises are being passed by future-proofed, high-speed broadband every day. NBI contractors have already been on the ground across the country for 25 months with over 330,000 premises nationwide surveyed to date and almost 180,000 either constructed or under construction. Today's announcement will see this activity take a further step up and we anticipate 40% of the entire Intervention Area will be under construction by the end of the year.” Gaeltec Managing Director, Joao Felizardo said: “Gaeltec is proud to be part of the NBP roll-out which will help to close the digital divide between urban and rural Ireland. As a Kilkenny company, we recognise the benefit high-speed broadband can bring to homes, farms and businesses all over the country, and we are delighted to be partnering with NBI to deliver it. We believe it is a testament to the reputation we have built in the Irish utility market, and the confidence our customers place in our high standard of work and consistent track record of delivery. We look forward to bringing those attributes to our partnership with NBI.” More about Irish Tech News Irish Tech News are Ireland's No. 1 Online Tech Publication and often Ireland's No.1 Tech Podcast too.

    This Podcast Is Episode Number 476, And It's About How High-Profit Jobs Can Make Or Break Your Construction Company Knowing which jobs have the highest probability of success and profit before getting involved moves your construction company from an unpredictable roller coaster to a peaceful merry-go-round.   You have what appears to be a high-profit job, and now you think you have it made, and I hope you are right!   The problem is that high-profit jobs can turn into low or no-profit jobs. In some cases, they can bankrupt your construction company because you bid on the project using whatever model you are accustomed to using, and in the end, you wind up with cash flow problems.   Many problems can be traced back to the "Halo Effect," which happens when a contractor thinks, "We are so good at (fill in the blank) we should expand into (fill in the blank).  The most common situation is when a residential remodel contractor who has built a reputation and a substantial company generating profits of 15% or more decides to start building custom homes. Or the opposite, a home builder who decides to branch out into residential remodeling. Home Builder Doing A Residential Remodel The processes, tools, equipment, materials, skills, and invoicing procedures required to modify a home with people living there are entirely different from building a house from the ground up. New construction workers are more like cave people with a brute force mentality. If something doesn't fit or will not work the way they want it to, they use more brute force until it does. Every problem has one answer "Brute Force." The same goes for managing sub-contractors and suppliers. The home builder bids on a residential remodel project using the exact square foot costs they have continuously operated in building houses and quickly discovers the true meaning of "Hidden Costs." These costs include dry rot, cracked foundations, broken plumbing, bad wiring, worn-out HVAC, and other unpleasant surprises. Homeowners living in the house while the remodel is happening do not ever want to be without water, lights, heat, and privacy, and they don't know how much debris, dust, and noise is involved in a remodel. Homeowners want to believe everything is included in the original contract price, including the little extras they think of along the way. When it comes to change orders, that is something most home builders do not understand. They don't have a process for tracking them, let alone pricing and getting paid for doing them. Most trade contractors and subcontractors who work on residential remodel projects understand change orders and know how to apply pressure on the builder to get paid. Too often, the main reason home builders go bankrupt is cash flow issues. Residential Remodel Contractor Building A Home The processes, tools, equipment, materials, skills, and invoicing procedures required to build a house from the ground up are entirely different from modifying a home with people living in it. They understand brute force will not work, but patience, planning, and being respectful do. Randal spent a few years in residential remodeling, and it did not take long to learn that new construction behavior does not work in residential remodeling. The remodeling contractor uses a form of "Cost Plus" or "Not To Exceed" to provide the homeowner with the scope of work and a contract price the bank needs to finance the construction. That process can work for a residential remodel because the house is already in place, which helps define the size and scope of the project. The size and scope of the homeowner's dream house are limited only by what the building codes will allow. When the labor, material, other costs, and subcontractor bills pile up, the remodeling contractor asks for a construction draw and is told the bank needs a Pay Application filled out and submitted. Then it will take a while for the bank inspector to review the project and approve the draw. This is when the remodel contractor figures out they are providing all the labor, material, other costs, and subcontractor expense up front and getting paid only when and if the building inspectors, architect, bank, and the client agree to the draw request. The Solution For your construction company to survive and thrive in any economy, you must pick a niche market and develop your Strategic Business Process Management System (BPM) with written goals of what you want to accomplish and how much money you want to earn from it. Once you have picked your construction specialty, stick with it no matter what, and in the end, you will have the best chance of making money and retiring wealthy. All contractors who try to do the right thing deserve to be wealthy because they bring value to other people's lives. Lost and tired of your bookkeeping system?

    One of Fletcher Building's toughest critics has little faith anything will change after a crisis meeting with the GIB giant today. KiwiSaver provider and social housing backer, Simplicity Living, sacked Fletchers as its plasterboard supplier because of massive product shortages that are crippling some businesses. Instead its going to import plasterboard. Fletcher has an effective monopoly on the market, but blames record building activity and hoarding for supply problems saying it's working 24/7 to make the stuff. Simplicity also holds about $35 million of Fletcher's shares on behalf of its clients and along with the Shareholders Association met with the company to express their concerns. Managing Director of Simplicty Living Shane Brealey talks to Lisa Owen.

They identify, invest in, and grow emerging companies developing innovative software and hardware solutions for the industries of architecture, engineering, construction, and facilities management.
