In our current market conditions, Realtors more than ever have to be on their game. In my market, the North Georgia Mountains, there was a day not too long ago where a Realtor could pick and choose the customers they wanted to work with. Obviously the Buyer coming into the area looking for a 4 bedroom home on wheels would be overlooked for the one looking for a 2 bedroom cabin with a great mountain view. Boy.....have times changed! Now its more like the Buyer gets to pick and choose the Realtor. How do you know you have picked the right Realtor?Below you will find 10 ways to make sure that the Realtor you choose to work with and help you find your next mountain home isn't a few sandwiches short of a picnic and will provide excellent customer service. A Realtor should provide you with fi...

Have you ever had a client ask you this question...What ever happened to a good ol' fashioned handshake?Believe it or not, it wasn't too awful long ago that was the case here in the North Georgia Mountains, folks really did business on a handshake. However in today's world of high tech gone wild, I believe we are forgetting about the simple things that mean so much to our customers and clients! Things like dropping by on Saturday morning for a cup of coffee, or an afternoon visit to help out with the yard! I know this may seem a little ridiculous, but doesn't it mean so much to them? We need to be bending over backwards to take care of our clients in more ways than just on the business side of life. It's all about being Good People!I recently had the opportunity to help a client with a ...

10. I've got to know....Does it have a "knock your socks off" mountain view?  Let's face it, folks come to the mountains because of those views! That is usually the first question Buyer's ask when calling or dropping in and asking about a specific property."Some like to have that "top of the world" view while others prefer to be in a valley looking up at the mountains."I personally like feeling surrounded by them. My perfect mountain dream would be in a valley with mountains surrounding me with lots of pasture and little rustic Mountain cabin right smack dab in the middle of it. The cabin would have a creek flowing right beside my window to help put me to sleep at night. I guess it would be like Grizzly Adams right here in North Georgia. Care to share your perfect mountain dream? 9. I'v...

"Its a Buyer's Market, so get out there and Buy"In a market where inventory is way up, and interest rates are going down...can you think of a better time to buy? Within the Region of the Northeast Georgia Board of Realtors, there are over 2500 Residential Listings with an average list price of $347,475 just within Fannin, Gilmer and Union Counties. In this same market, there are over 4800 Vacant Lots with an average list price of $114,662. That is a whole bunch of inventory! If you ever wanted to act upon that dream you have always had of owning a cabin in the North Georgia Mountains, well its time to hoe a row!If you are not looking for a second home or vacation home, maybe you are looking into Real Estate Investments. If so, you should pick up a copy of The Millionaire Real Estate Inv...

Well, we were attacked at home last night!  It was a quiet evening at home.  They arrived silently before dawn..sneeking right up to my front door!  My 3 dogs never heard them..they slept right through the attack!  It was the White Tail Gang of Raccoon Ridge.  It is a small gang..only 3 members, but it is amazing how much damage they could do in one evening.  It started in my driveway.  The trail of destruction included a peach tree, an apple tree, a rose bush and all my lilly plants.  They then moved on to my planter next to my front door, where they ate all the oriental lillies and anything that resembled food to them.  Of course I am talking about the neighborhood deer!  We love to watch them, just like everyone else, but being pretty new to mountain life, we didn't know that some pl...
The tiny town of Blue Ridge, Georgia was once an elite health resort centered around the pure mineral waters that drew visitors to ride the train into town, have dinner, and then a lesurely stroll to the mineral springs. You can still ride that train today, and then meander along Main Street, enjoying specialty shops, restaurants, and art galleries amidst a small-town atmosphere that you may have feared had gone the way of the dodo!The Blue Ridge Railroad Depot, now home to the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, remains the center of downtown Bluer Ridge, along with the Blue Ridge City Park, which is the prime locale for community gatherings and festivals. The Chattahoochee National Forest and the Ocoee Whitewater Center provide outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities, along with magnifi...
