Georgia Builder Shifts Focus to Custom Homes and Land Development in Some of Atlanta’s Hottest Markets
Atlanta, May 16, 2016 – In 2015, Tyrone resident Tony Pourhassan celebrated the ten-year anniversary of his company – Highlight Homes. Looking back over the last decade, a clear evolution has taken place as Pourhassan continues to build his company from the ground up just like the new construction homes he first built in communities he helped develop. Following a meteoric rise over the course of the first three years of operation, the bubble burst in the housing market in 2008. Pourhassan – like so many other builders in Georgia – was forced to make some tough decisions, including minimizing his staff and shifting his focus to more viable means of keeping his company afloat. Highlight Homes survived the Great Recession by rebranding itself as a luxury renovation company – which it did to great success, earning a highly esteemed Obie Award from the Sales & Marketing Council of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association along the way. In 2014, Highlight Homes began to explore new ways to expand and grow slowly and cautiously – breaking into the semi-custom home market and applying that same level of one-on-one customer service that had worked so well during the lean years. Today, buoyed by the success of his semi-custom ventures in some of Atlanta’s most sought after neighborhoods, Pourhassan plans for growth once more as he adds custom homes and land development back into the mix. His first step in this exciting new direction includes the introduction of a new logo and launch of a beautiful new website – HighlightHomesGA.com.
“We really wanted a website that served as a digital extension of the positive home building and renovating experience our clients have come to know and love,” explained Pourhassan. “We realize that – now more than ever before – buyers will research a company online before picking up the phone to schedule a meeting, so our new website serves as an all-important first introduction to who we are and what we do. We hope that our guests enjoy their visit to our website and that it leads to a phone call to learn more about what we can bring to their family’s life – a beautiful house they will love to call ‘home.’ We are also excited to introduce a new logo that reflects the sophistication of our new direction and will undoubtedly serve to secure our brand as one of Atlanta’s premier custom builders and luxury renovation companies.”
Designed by Keener Digital Marketing and showcasing beautifully captured images by Never the Rock Photography, the new website features all of the service areas that Highlight Homes now encompasses: Custom Homes, Semi-Custom Homes, Luxury Whole Home Renovations, Land Development and Architectural/Interior Design Services. It also includes a number of neighborhoods in which Highlight Homes focuses, available Semi-Custom Homes and gallery of Highlight Homes’ work, as well as articles about the latest trends and helpful tips for homebuyers/homeowners. Clients will benefit from a special project portal that allows them to keep up-to-date on where their renovation or custom home construction stands and document change requests/communications with their project manager.
“Keener Digital is pleased to have developed a cutting edge website for Highlight Homes,” said Lynne Keener, Director at Keener Digital Marketing. “The graphic-rich site reflects the beautiful homes designed and built by the company while offering visitors an easy to navigate, mobile-ready experience. Highlight Homes continues to push the limits of innovative building and their new website is all part of connecting with clients and delivering stellar results.”
