Who we Are
At Rezide Properties, we love what we do, and we pride ourselves both on being a fun place to work and on making the home building process fun for our clients. The enjoyable atmosphere that we have at Rezide is all a result of having a truly outstanding team. From our office staff to our builders, each individual who works here brings unique talents and a passion for doing the best job around.
Our experience and design expertise are extensive – our owner, Tony Perry, and our building partner, Chris LaFaive, have a combined 62 years of experience building houses! Our philosophy is that we don’t just build houses, we build something that’s part of your lifestyle. We’ve thought a lot about how you interact with your home and how it’s a part of you and your life.
Our Rezide Properties team operates like a family. It’s our goal to be welcoming and inclusive and to treat our team, as well as our homebuyers, with the same love and respect we show our family.
As a company, we’re all about having fun and getting the job done! We build our new home communities in fun areas – downtown Woodstock’s vibrant entertainment district and Lake Arrowhead with its unparalleled outdoor recreation options are two great examples. When you choose to build a house with us, we commit to making the home building process fun! Our company motto is “Just live better,” and for us, that includes incorporating as much fun into each day-to-day activity as we can.
Work with us and become part of our family, too!
Our Expert Team
Tony Perry, CEO & President of Land Development and Acquisition
Tony has been in the homebuilding business since 1978. He founded his first homebuilding company in 1989 and built more than 1,200 of the 6,500 homes in the then newly developed Towne Lake community. Having built thousands of single-family homes in the greater Atlanta area, office spaces, and even a shopping center, Tony decided in 2014 to focus his efforts on the vibrant and popular city of Woodstock.
Tony is a Certified Professional Homebuilder with the Greater Atlanta Homebuilders Association and has won numerous accolades, including Home Builder of the Year Greater Atlanta and multiple awards for Best Building Design. He is active in his community—Woodstock—and has been named Cherokee County Person of the Year and Cherokee County Y Volunteer of the Year.
Tony is married to his incredibly talented wife, Patti Bachtel, and has three adult children and two grandchildren, who love exploring downtown Woodstock with their grandpa!
Chris LaFaive, VP of Production
Chris got his first builders license in Michigan when he was just 19 years old. After three years of building houses there, he pursued his college degree in Chattanooga while running a full-time construction company that specialized in roofing, siding, and deck construction. After a number of years building homes in Tennessee, Chris moved to Atlanta and began building houses with Tony in 2014 – and Rezide Properties was born!
Chris does it all. He oversees day-to-day operations – everything from purchasing and estimating to managing superintendents, as well as some of the management and administrative tasks at the office. And of course, he builds houses, too! Chris has extensive expertise in each part of the homebuilding process, from the ground up.
When he’s not working, Chris likes to play basketball and travel when he can. He’s a snowboarder and heads out West to Colorado and Utah when the weather’s right.
