Welcome Lookout Mountain Development
In early 2007 Pep and Bo Grimes (father and son) formed Lookout Mountain Development Company, LLC out of a need for a local company to act as an intermediary between large development companies and property owners. We saw the need for a “feet on the ground” company that knows the ins and outs of the area and the proper channels to achieve common goals. In the early 1990’s we purchased property here because of the natural beauty and the convenient location of area; then we saw the vast potential the area offers those looking for their own mountain retreat. Over the next fifteen plus years, working with local landowners, contractors, and craftsmen, we have built an extensive knowledge base that is a valuable tool for those planning to build or do development work.
While their education and experience is what you would expect from those affiliated with a large development company; the motivation for the owners is a vested interest in and sense of responsibility for this area of Lookout Mountain. Pep Grimes received his undergraduate degree in Finance and his MBA degree from Emory University. He worked for Provident Insurance (now UNUM) in the investment department working with borrowers, appraisers, and development companies. He took early retirement and saw a need and an opportunity in the area that he calls home. Bo Grimes graduated from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Small Business Management and accepted a position with Container Service Corporation upon receiving his degree. Bo was the corporate buyer for the company for 5 years before resigning to join the family real estate brokerage business, Lookout Mountain Real Estate, LLC, in 2006. More...
