Development at Avalon is taking shape, and we couldn’t be more excited! As Monte Hewett Homes moves forward with the initial stages of development, we thought now would be a good time to share a little more about Monte Hewett, the founder of Atlanta’s premier homebuilding company.
Here is an excerpt from Monte’s interview and you can find the full interview on www.comevisitavalon.com/meet-monte:
“How did you become a homebuilder, where did it all start? And how did you end up in Atlanta?”
“When I was 15 I worked in the mall. I really wanted to work outside, so I joined a framing crew. After high school, I attended Colorado State where I majored in Industrial Construction Management. After graduation, I went to work to for a production homebuilder in Dallas and supervised the construction of over 400 homes by the time I was 25.
In 1988 I had an opportunity to start a division of the Dallas company in Atlanta, so I moved here. Over the next ten years, I recognized that Atlanta traffic would push home buyers into better locations. Thus I transitioned the company into an infill builder – i.e. building in specific, smaller submarket areas of the city where people truly wanted to live. In 1999 I purchased the company from the Dallas entity and started Monte Hewett Homes…”
Avalon is a new experience in the timeless art of living well and Monte Hewett Homes is proud to be the exclusive residential builder in this new community. Avalon is a sustainably-designed, 86-acre development mixing an upscale, cosmopolitan retail experience with the warmth and charm of the modern South. It’s more than just another place to go, it’s a place to be.
