Ah, Memorial Day weekend. The weather is warm, many pools and water parks are now open, children are out of school and many adults get to enjoy an extra day off of work.

While you are enjoying your day off, be sure to remember the men and women serving here and abroad as well as the veterans whose years of service helped keep America safe. There are several celebrations around the metro Atlanta area that celebrate and honor our service men and women.

Marietta National Cemetery Memorial Day Ceremony

For the past 63 Memorial Days at noon, countless visitors flock to the cemetery, located just off Roswell Street near the Marietta Square for a moving ceremony. Visitors will experience patriotic music, the posting of the colors and a gun salute among the headstones of our nation’s heroes.

Roswell Remembers

The city of Roswell boasts one of the largest Memorial Day celebrations in the state of Georgia. The non-political, non-commercial ceremony honors veterans and their sacrifices to maintain our freedom. A full day of remembrance starts at 10 a.m. at City Hall. Read More→

Marietta new homesTraton Homes has had a blast introducing Rockford Township to home buyers and real estate agents. We’ve had several celebrations for people to come out, enjoy great food, register for prizes and tour our Marietta homes located close to the square.

Our first event was geared to home buyers and we had a fun cookout and special incentives. We also had a Realtor event where agents registered to win a Ritz Carlton Spring Spa Getaway. We awarded that prize to Donna Hogan of Keller Williams Dallas Highway!

Come see what all the buzz is about at Rockford Township for yourself. The beautifully decorated model features the Glenstone design. The home has a glitzy formal dining room and open family room with natural elements and dramatic artwork. The spacious kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances looks like the ideal place to gather while preparing a home-cooked meal. Read More→

Davis FarmsWhile you’re out and about in Kennesaw this weekend, stop by Davis Farm just off of Stilesboro Road. The community of Cobb County new homes opened May 7, and is offering an amazing incentive for the first three buyers. If you are one of the first three, you’ll get more space to park your cars or store all of your sports equipment with a free three-car-garage upgrade (two-car-garages are standard).

The community’s location is perfect. Stilesboro Road shelters Davis Farm among its shady mature landscape. The community feels miles away from the hustle and bustle of the area, yet is close enough that getting to the wide variety of shops and restaurants off Barrett Parkway is just as easy as going to downtown Kennesaw for antiquing or to attend one of Kennesaw’s many festivals.

Traton Homes may have beautiful homes and a terrific reputation backed by a hard working staff, but one of the main components to the company’s success is the love of a mother.

Ask any of the Poston brothers or grandsons – Bill, Milburn, Chris or Clif – what is one of the driving forces of success behind Traton Homes, and they’ll tell you it’s Clifford.

At 92, Mrs. Poston is still a familiar face around the Traton Headquarters on Kennesaw Avenue in Marietta. She still comes to work everyday, and its her steady hand and conservative voice that has helped Traton survive the housing downturn. The depression taught Mrs. Poston how to pinch pennies – a trait she instilled in her sons. This trait is one of many reasons home buyers enjoy stunning architecture at a terrific value in their new homes.

Traton Homes was formed at the Sunday dinner table a few years after the death of Clifford’s husband, Red, by Clifford, her sons Bill and Milburn and daughter Marian. Read More→
