Getting close to retirement.You've saved and are ready to buy that lakefront property you've been dreaming of.GULP - sticker shock sets in when you realize boomers everywhere are making the same move. High demand has driven prices far beyond where they were when you started thinking about this a decade or so ago.What do you do? Seek out nice lakes in remote locations? Give up your dream? Or make strategic compromises that allow you to be where you want to be, with most of what you want.Since 2005, I've been helping buyers follow their dreams.  And I have good news - its still possible to get most of what you want at a price you can afford - if you are willing to make compromises.Last week, two families purchased lots with private lake front at prices well below the median price. For $15...

This has been an interesting year. I have spoken to many agents that are suffering with no business. Some have left the practice and others have taken up "Real" jobs. Many come to me and ask for advice on how to get their business going again. I am always happy to talk, but I find so few listen.For me, I have had my best year ever in the 18 years I have been in the business, by at least 30%. I have been blessed with terrific clients. So, when agents ask me for help they want to know what my silver bullet is. How am I able to generate business? The answer is really simple, treat all clients with respect, offer the best client service you can, and business will naturally come. It really is that simple.So when I tell agents this, they seem disappointed that there is no sure fire quick to t...

Woodstock is one of the best small cities in America AGAIN. Scoring in the 98th percentile with an overall score of 67.35 in the WalletHub evaluation.Source: WalletHub Hey, folks! Isn't it wonderful living in Woodstock, Georgia? A place we're all proud to call home! 🏡💙 But, what makes Woodstock, nestled in the heart of Cherokee County and just outside of Atlanta, truly special, is that it's been ranked #31 as one of the top places to live in America in a recent Wallet Hub evaluation. Not bad for our lovely town, eh?While big cities tend to attract the limelight, almost a third of Americans (31%) express their preference for suburban living in overcrowded urban areas (16%) or remote rural communities (24%). We in Woodstock perfectly embody this preference with our unique blend of small-t...

The Kane Studio 1,600 acre film project has been approved by city officials.  Cost outlays have been reported to be at $700 million, but at a presentation before the city it was said to be a one billion dollar project.  Either way it's big, so big that it will be the largest studio and production facility in the state.  But before you panic that it will end up being an eye sore and another large clear cut, think again.  This project, while bringing in jobs and revenue for the area, is a project carefully planned out to maintain the sustainability and beauty of the rural charm that Chattahoochee Hills is know for.  The plan is so that when complete, people will drive by and hardly even notice that it's there, with trees and rural agriculture space dedicated.  The actual buildings will be...

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown and More - Community Gardens Around Town - 1 Atlanta, Buckhead, Midtown and many more sections of the City of Atlanta offer surprising glimpses of small town enterprises. Who would think that so many Community Gardens exist inside the urban area!Let's review the top blue "x" marking on the map in this post. In the area Atlantans call Northeast, the Blue Heron Nature Preserve offers a mix of public and private governance. The dense car-focused vista is now planted with grasses and herbaceous plants - shall we go so far as to say wild flowers? - and recreating a meadow. Meadows, known in the South as Prairies, consist of low foliage and not trees. Small animals live in the grasses and among the plants.Along the side of Roswell Road, a heavily built-up area with ma...

I still shake my head over the current real estate market. I have a listing, a nice townhome that is getting very few showings. And I had a new listing that went live this past Friday that was under contract within 24 hours after the first three showings produced three offers. Within the next 24 hours we had a backup offer that includes a $10,000 option. Some homes are gone in an instant. This one was priced well, it looked great, and was in a nice subdivision. The townhome? Probably priced just a bit high for its condition and located inside the perimeter.It really is all about location and condition. It also explains why many agents are complaining that their business is slow. If they list a property and it is not priced well or the condition is not optimal, it is likely to sit on the...
