Great Southern Homes Sees Growth in The Upstate


The nation’s housing market continues to grow, particularly in the Carolinas and Georgia, and Great Southern Homes is capturing that expansion.

For the past three years, Great Southern Homes has been building homes at an average 40% growth rate. During this period, the company expanded into most major markets in SC and Augusta, GA. In 2016, the company closed over 750 houses and was recognized as the 74th largest builder in the nation and the 6th fastest-growing private builder by Builder Magazine.


Marketed by Coldwell Banker Caine, Great Southern Homes offers six communities in the Upstate, Tucker Branch and Fountainbrook in Fountain Inn, Weatherstone and Victoria Park in Simpsonville, Whispering Oaks in Mauldin, and Roland’s Crossing in Boiling Springs. Great Southern Homes builds green and smart homes ranging from $130,000’s- $400,000’s, and all are equipped with Honeywell’s “Tuxedo Touch” Home Automation Smart System. They also come with a Residential Energy Cost Guarantee for two years after purchase.

The company’s founder and owner, Michael Nieri attributes the company’s remarkable success to its core team of talented homebuilding professionals. “We have come out of the housing recession stronger, faster and smarter,” says Nieri. “We’ve made some important changes to streamline our operations and be more nimble and more responsive to changes in the marketplace.”

Erika DeRoberts, Broker and Director of Developer Relations at Coldwell Banker Caine, added, “It is a pleasure to partner with such an outstanding local builder. Great Southern Homes meets the needs of today’s buyer by offering the upgrades, smart home technology and green features that they desire.”
