Builders Join Black Creek Mountain Team

Tuesday, August 20, 2013
 Black Creek Mountain announced the addition of four builders to their development team.  Dexter White, Hagaman Construction Company, Hill Haven Holdings/Nu Era Construction and P&C Construction are on point for construction of new homes within the community.

“The builders selected for Black Creek Mountain are known for their exceptional level of custom home building services,” said Barry Valcarcel, broker.
  “We are excited to begin development of new homes as the community continues to grow.”

The $500 million development was named one of the ‘Top 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the U.S. by Where to Retire Magazine in June, and is one of the bestselling communities in Chattanooga this year.  

“As we see sales numbers climb, our goal is to continue to provide only the best in custom homes to our current and future residents,” said Jennifer Francis, sales professional.  “With the addition of our new builders, we know that we have the highest quality homes in the most beautiful  community Chattanooga has to offer.  And because Black Creek Mountain is located within six minutes of Downtown, there’s simply no comparison.”

The team of builders has begun construction on eight new homes ranging from $300,000-$700,000.

We Need The Chattanooga History Center

Having been on several of Dr. Daryl Black's walking tours, I can say that they weren't just informative, but a treat. The downtown, Fort Wood and Ninth Street of yesteryear were brought dramatically to life. We stood on the ground where Sherman had his headquarters (near the Ice Cream Show) and the corner where Bessie Smith sang as a young girl. And we also stood beneath the ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: He’s Exempt From Drunk

I love the old story about a popular Senator who, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, was asked late one evening, “Sir, what if we get bombed?” to which came the quick reply, “I’d be absolutely delighted … I can get one of my aides to drive us home afterwards.” You think of stuff like that when word comes from Kentucky that state legislator Brandon Smith was caught driving erratically ...
