Home: Life Happens Here

Categories: Family Homes, Open House | Posted: March 19, 2015

Have you ever really thought about what folks looking for a new home are actually searching for?family in the kitchen

At Grant & Co., we know that families are not looking for sticks and bricks or sheetrock and roofing.

Home buyers are looking for family rooms for their first Christmas tree and great kitchens for that Thanksgiving dinner cooking marathon.  For game rooms large enough for 10 little girls at a birthday sleep-over and backyards big enough for t-ball practice. For fireplaces just large enough for Santa and front doors that open wide for trick-or-treaters.  For kitchen bars for a quick breakfast to start the day and relaxing master bathroom whirlpool tubs to end a long day.  For cool storage cubbies for wet rain boots and sticky backpacks. For safety and security, for convenience to favorite shopping areas and work, for great schools and friendly neighborhoods.

At Grant, we understand HOME doesn’t mean the same thing as HOUSE.  We know that home is where your life happens.  Home is where your lifetime memories are made.  That’s why we want to get to know you a little before we start showing you floorplans and houses under construction.

Stop by any Grant & Co. sales information center today and tell us about your family.  Let us get to know you.   We want to show you the way home in Olive Branch, MS, Bartlett, TN, Arlington, TN, Lakeland, TN, and Memphis, TN.

Grant sales information centers are open most every day.  For locations and directions, click here.

Arlington, the second fastest growing city in the State of Tennessee, is just 25 miles from downtown Memphis and 30 minutes from the Memphis International Airport. So very close to all the amenities offered in the big city next door, Arlington residents still love that small town sense of community that makes this place a great place to raise a family or plan a retirement.

Arlington provides its residents with beautiful places to explore and enjoy the outdoors in the area’s 8 (Eight!!) parks, including the Arlington Sports Complex, multiple athletic fields, Playground of Dreams, bicycle and pedestrian paths, and nature trails.   Arlington’s quality schools are part of what most Grant homeowners love about this community. The Arlington school system is known for its excellent educational, band, and athletic credentials.

Other Grant homebuyers who have chosen Arlington as their hometown love the historical Arlington town square with its unique shops and quaint restaurants.

map_of_arlington_tnWhile Arlington’s wonderful sense of community and quality schools make it a great hometown, Grant’s homes in Brooks Manor give new homebuyers the latest in home features and designs they deserve.

Valentine’s Day is Family Day

Categories: Community Involvement, Family Homes, Open House | Posted: February 11, 2015



valentines-day-as-family-dayValentine’s Day isn`t just for couples anymore. Originally held to honor St Valentine and express love to sweethearts, February 14 has become a time of celebration and fun for families.

Today, families take this special day to express their love and appreciation for each other by giving cards, flowers, chocolates and other candies. There are also lots of ways to celebrate love that won’t cost much but will provide fun-filled memories for all family members.

Balloon Goodies  Fill red and pink balloons with candies and other small treats. Inflate the balloon bouquets and leave them to be found at the breakfast table for a fun morning treat for your little ones.

Valentine Scavenger Hunt   Organize a treasure hunt on Valentine’s Day. Write little notes about how you feel for your family members and what they mean to you and place them around your house along with a candy heart or other treat. Add a riddle at the end of each note about where to find the next note. At the last note, have something special waiting there, say a teddy bear or other toy or treat. Valentine’s Day this year is on a Saturday – plenty of time to find the hidden treasures.

Picnic Fun   Cook up some yummy dishes at home, pack them into your Valentine baskets and go for a picnic with your family. The February weather may not be the best time for a picnic, so just move your picnic indoors in front of the fireplace. Fill up the picnic hamper with chili and hot chocolate, games and goodies and have a great time with the people you love!

Touch lives Valentine’s Day can be a great opportunity to touch the life of someone else by making the day special for the elderly or sick. You can visit a nearby hospital or assisted living facility to hand over small Valentine gifts to the patients admitted in there; especially those who do not have many visitors. Your presence will fill them with a sense of belonging to the community and provide them with some much needed emotional boost.

For other great ideas for a family Valentine’s Day celebration, check out this website by clicking here.

All Grant & Co. model homes will be open on Saturday, February 14 – come enjoy a Valentine cookie and a tour of our beautifully decorated models. For directions, visit
