atlanta new homesThis summer, Traton Homes celebrates its 40th anniversary of building homes throughout the metro-Atlanta area. Though the housing market has had its ups and downs, Traton Homes has remained steady, building nearly 7,000 homes in more than 80 communities throughout Atlanta.

In 1952, Clifford and Red Poston started Poston Realty & Insurance, later known as Poston, Guthrie and Fowler. Red passed away in 1963 and in 1971, Clifford, sons Bill and Milburn and daughter Marian started Traton Homes. The name was formed using the first part of Milburn’s daughter’s name – Tracy – and Bill’s son’s name – Clifton (Clif), and combined the two to create Traton.

The strong work ethic in the Poston family continues to be put to work at Traton Homes. Bill’s sons Chris, the company’s senior vice president, and Clif, the company’s executive vice president, joined Traton in 1997 and 1999, respectively. Clifford, now 92, still arrives to work at Traton daily, and is an inspiration to the entire Traton family of employees.

The Poston family’s consevative nature has helped navigate Traton Homes through the recent economic downturn. The builder has been one of the few in the Atlanta market actively acquiring land and consistently opening new communities. Over the past three years, Traton Homes has begun building in more than 20 Atlanta new home communities. Read More→

Traton Homes is now offering single-family detached homes from the mid $500,000s in the heart of Buckhead at Valley Brook Parc. Homes in the community were originally slated to be priced from the $800,000s, but Traton Homes was able to attain homesites at a reduced cost, passing the savings on to home buyers.

Valley Brook Parc is a private enclave of only 18 homesites, tucked away near Chastain Park. In its first week of sales, five home buyers wrote contracts, leaving only 13 sites available.

“This community is an incredible opportunity in Buckhead,” said Kimberly Garwood, marketing manager for Traton Homes. “We are offering single-family detached homes at a price that is truly a unique value in the area. This is brand new construction from a builder with 40 years of experience building new homes in Atlanta.”

The community features new home plans with unique architectural details, both inside and out. Read More→
