Athens-based real estate firm raises $40k for Athens Area Habitat for Humanity

Landmark Properties, an Athens-based real estate company, recently raised $40,000 at its maiden golf tournament, the Building Hope Through Homes Golf Invitational, to benefit Athens Area Habitat for Humanity’s Micah’s Creek Project.

The fundraiser was held last month at The Georgia Club in Statham.

The Micah’s Creek initiative aims to transform local families from renters to homeowners within a single school attendance zone and, for the first time, measure the educational, financial, and social outcomes for those families over a period of several years.

This new neighborhood, dubbed Micah’s Creek, will also be the location of Lydia’s Second Home, phase-two of a unique non-profit partnership that provides subsidized housing for formerly homeless students seeking to beat the odds by earning their college degrees. 

 "Landmark is proud to partner with Athens Area Habitat for Humanity, who are making a positive impact in the lives of local families and students through their Micah’s Creek project,” Landmark co-founder and COO James Whitley said. "This golf tournament demonstrates Landmark’s commitment to making a positive social impact, and that includes supporting the communities where we live and work through both active social engagement and charitable giving. I’m very grateful to our team, participants, vendors, and supporters for helping make this inaugural event such a success.”

More than 40 foursomes turned out to play in the tournament and 44 sponsors supported the event with financial donations.  

 "A project like Micah’s Creek requires vision, hard work, and partnership,” said Spencer Frye, executive director of Athens Area Habitat. “This tournament exceeded everyone’s expectations, and we’re profoundly grateful for the tremendous response to this fundraiser from so many participating organizations, and especially to Landmark Properties for their generous support of this unique local project which we hope to see replicated across the country in coming years."


Headquartered in Athens, with an office in Atlanta, Landmark Properties is a fully integrated real estate firm, specializing in the acquisition, development, and management of high-quality residential communities. With more than $10 billion assets under management, Landmark’s portfolio includes nearly 100 residential communities across the country with more than 60,000 beds under management. Additionally, Landmark benefits from an active development pipeline with 21 student and multifamily projects under construction with an estimated value at $3.7 billion. Landmark’s mission is to be the leader in development, construction, operations, and investment management of high-quality residential communities, delivering unrivaled service and experience to its residents, partners, and employees.

Landmark Properties is a joke. You should see how they treat their tenants. The money also comes from the super high rent they charge are properties that should be condemned & over run with crime.

Amazing!!! All this money with zero impact. I guess if you are a State house of representative and run a nonprofit , with zero accountability, you can make money hand and fist all the way from God to the devil himself with no questions asked...

Lmao "commitment to making a positive social impact"

I mean, Habitat should take the money offered to them by the corporate overlords albeit PR at a pocket change price for them.
