Alan and Nelly Turner

Buying a house is the largest investment most of us will ever make in our life. Nelly and I were in the market for a house in a popular neighborhood in Smyrna. We had searched high and low, unable to find what was perfect for us we reached out to Elise Johnson and gave her our dream list of wants. Elise coordinated with Leland Homes to help us build our dream home. Terry Wilson the owner of Leland Homes listened to our desires and dreams and he turned them into reality. We were updated regularly by Terry and Elise. They took what could be a stressful life event and made it straightforward, upfront and more than what we could have ever dreamed of! We have a wonderful craftsman style home that has beautiful curb appeal, is energy efficient and has every option that we wanted and more! We will be forever thankful for the craftsmanship, quality, home and friendship that Terry and Elise delivered. If you're ready to build your dream home Terry and Elise are the perfect team to make your dreams come true!

Building our new home with Terry and Elise at Leland Homes has been such a rewarding experience.  We first contacted Elise when we saw that Leland Homes was building in our desired neighborhood.  She was able to very quickly figure out our desires and located the perfect lot.  I've never worked with an agent who is as driven to make everyone happy in what could be a stressful home buying process.  Elise is an honest, unbelievably hard working and talented agent who we'd heard great things about before even meeting her and can wholly attest to now! We met the builder, Terry,  shortly after for an initial home buying meeting.  Terry is a passionate builder who from day one was every bit excited about building our house as much as we were.  A lot of builders tout honesty as a trait - but Terry's honesty, openness, and integrity are exceptional.  His commitment to our family to build a house that we'd be happy in showed every day I spoke or met with him.  Terry absolutely executed the vision we had for our new home and provided it on schedule.  He offered essential ideas that ultimately made the final product a house that we are very happy…

My clients were looking for new construction close to downtown Smyrna and I can honestly say we found a gem. Upon entering the home, we knew this was it and we needed to move quickly. From the open floor plan to lovely details, this home was crafted with love. The listing agent, Elise Johnson, was truly a blessing to work with. She helped us move through negotiations and go under contract within 24 hours. Throughout the process, she was always willing to help and very communicative. I will cherish working with her again soon. Leland Homes is a builder that constructs a top tier home and provides reliable service throughout the process. Terry took great pride in the house he designed and built and went above and beyond to deliver the home in absolute perfection on closing day. My clients couldn't be happier in their new home. It was such a great experience from beginning to end. Thank you Elise and Terry for one of the best transactions of my 6.5 year real estate career! ....M A K I N G  H O U S E S  I N T O  H O M E S....

In December 2016 my husband and I came down to Georgia from NY for a possible job offer for him- in our down time we started looking at homes for sale, and checking out areas knowing that a possible big move was in our future. The first home we walked into was a Leland home- we both were in love. This made me hopeful that I would be happy living in the south. By the time he got the job offer and sold our home in NY that home was already sold. We came down to Georgia and started in an apartment. About 2 months in we started looking at homes again. Nothing came close to that first home we saw back in December. That's when I reached out to Elise Johnson again asking if the builder- Terry had any projects going on. Luckily there was! We went to look at the available home and fell in love- even harder this time around. It was the most beautiful home I have ever walked into not to mention in the perfect commuting location for my husband. The attention to detail, the quality of the finishes- like a dream. So we continued…
