5 Fundamentals from 50 Years of Excellence

2020 marks JW Collection founder John Wieland’s 50th year in homebuilding. Over five decades, John has established an indelible legacy of excellence that the JW Collection continues to bring to life each day. In celebration of this milestone in one of homebuilding’s most iconic careers, we asked John for a few reflections on the fundamentals that have driven his commitment and success -and delighted more than 30,000 homebuyers – over the years. Here’s what he said.


Land Can Drive Lifestyle

“The promise of building better homes begins with a commitment to only buy the very best pieces of land in the belief that building unique neighborhoods in prime urban locations creates a lifestyle that is ideally suited to the world today. JW Collection neighborhoods are located close to all of the places that you need in a vibrant metropolitan area such as Atlanta.”


Home is Personal

“Even in a central location, JW Collection neighborhoods are set apart so that your home is unique and may truly be called home each time you pull into the driveway. Making each home unique and personal for each and every owner is our vision and our measure for success.”


Character Over Quantity

“Architectural character both inside and out has been a 50-year fundamental. Character as to what we build and not quantity is our guiding principle.”


Design is in Details

“I am involved in the design of new homes on the drafting board, but I also walk the prototype for each plan and make the necessary changes to get every detail just right, both inside and out.”


Excellence Stands Apart

“My personal commitment for 50 years has been to build better homes. A John Wieland home and neighborhood is unlike what any other builder delivers to the Atlanta marketplace. That difference is something that homebuyers experience from the moment they drive in.”
