Our History

The Providence Group of Georgia is an Atlanta-based home building company well known for their desirable locations offering innovative home designs, upscale interiors, amenity-rich communities and low maintenance lifestyles. The Providence Group is considered the leading Lifestyle Builder in Atlanta offering a variety of home styles that appeal to every home buyer including single family homes, townhomes and midrise condominiums.

The Providence Group of Georgia, LLC is lead by the father-son team of Pete and Warren Jolly, both Atlanta natives, who earned a reputation for excellence with the success of Jolly Development, one of the city’s premier land development firms. Now, they share their combined 50 years of experience building thousands of homes directly with homebuyers at The Providence Group of Georgia, LLC. This grants customers the best of both worlds by presenting the most distinctive homes in the finest developments.

The Jolly family is renowned for intelligent craftsmanship, meticulous attention to detail and including upgrades as standard features. The value of receiving premium options and the assurance of a home built by craftsmen with thoughtful attention to detail is worth so much more than settling for a production-built house. “We always do what we say we’re going to do, and then some,” says Warren Jolly, President. Throughout the homebuilding and buying process, the Jolly’s treat every customer like family because more than a company, this is a family committed to providing the very best.

The Providence Group's innovative approach to residential development is based upon building unique homes in Atlanta’s most sought-after locations for a wide variety of lifestyles. This customer-focused philosophy comes to life in beautiful neighborhoods that people love to call home. Their communities provide well-designed living that reflects an area’s natural beauty and enhances the ease of life. Lush landscaping, tall trees, curved streets and meandering sidewalks complement activity centers, aquatic and racquet clubs, and nature trails. Communities are warm, open and inviting, offering homeowners a complete lifestyle experience.

The Providence Group of Georgia was ranked the 11th Largest Builder by the Atlanta Business Chronicle in 2017 and is a long-time member of the Greater Atlanta Homebuilder's Association. The Providence Group currently offers new home communities in sought after locations throughout Atlanta including Cobb, Forsyth, Fulton and Gwinnett Counties.

As a Green Brick Partner, The Providence Group combines our local building expertise in the Atlanta homebuilding market with the strong financial resources of Green Brick partners, Inc. (NASDAQ: GRBK). Learn more About Green Brick partners.
