Discover Monroe, GA!

downtown Monroe, GA mural

Between Winder and Social Circle Georgia sits a hidden gem of a small town, Monroe Georgia. Far from the noise and traffic of Atlanta, but convenient to Athens, Lake Oconee, and the serenity of East Georgia. Monroe is a haven of old school charm, reminiscent of the small town life from the fictitious enclave of Grady, South Carolina – the small town that trapped Michael J. Fox in Doc Hollywood. Now, Monroe Georgia isn’t the “Squash capital of the world”, but it definitely has plenty going for it when it comes to quality small town life. We’re talking fireflies, cold clover underneath your bare feet, and fresh air that intown people spend big bucks trying to recreate with filters and machines. Read on to discover more, not only about Monroe, Ga, but about some new home communities that even qualify for USDA loans (a special type of loan that often provides financing without any down payment – contact us for details). 

At Direct Residential Communities, we have over 50 years of experience building beautiful quality homes in the places you want to be. We are committed to providing wonderful houses for our new homeowners so they can comfortably and confidently nestle into their new hometown. We are proud to introduce two stunning new home communities in Monroe!
