Joe and Oliver make two unlikely Cinderellas. After having spent the first part of their lives in zoos, Joe and Oliver were whisked away from unhappy lives by their 'fairy godparents,' Jane and Steuart Dewar, to Gorilla Haven, a 324-acre spread in the North Georgia Mountains, just outside of Blue...

The other morning, while I was out putting up a sign and lockbox on a new listing in Mountain High subdivision, I couldn't help but notice the beautiful layers of mountains draped in the misty morning fog. I always try to take advantage of a photo opportunity when I see one. The mountain view enc...

Why did the Chicken cross the road? (And how does he know to use the crosswalk?) The answer to this age-old question, and many others can be found in Blue Ridge, Georgia. Not to be too cocky, but Blue Ridge is a town like no other that exists in this day and age, and residents like it that way. ...

Blue Ridge, Georgia draws people to it, like a magnet. It’s a special place, almost like stepping back into a simpler time, to when life was slower paced and people waved to you as you passed by. But, the transition to the simple life’s not so simple for many transplants who come from more conte...

Gone are the days when the word 'foreclosure' conjured up images of dilapidated homes with broken windows and boarded-up doors.  Meet the new face of foreclosure. My client just closed on this spectacular 5-bedroom, 4-1/2 bath home on Wednesday. Nestled on five wooded acres in a desirable gated c...

I never cease to marvel at the talented array of people who are drawn to our little hometown community of Blue Ridge Georgia. Take, for instance, Ann Blonder, the owner of one of downtown Blue Ridge’s premier dining facilities, REPAZ ON MAIN.   Originally from Buckhead, Ann owned a home on Lake B...

Moving from the city to the country has put me at a definite disadvantage when it comes to insights into my relationship with my wife. The way a woman’s mind works has always been hard to keep up with, keeping track of their ever-changing wants and needs, but now that we live on 50 acres in Blue ...

The real estate equivalent of the Ice Age is upon us. Like the prehistoric behemoths that roamed the earth millions of years ago, the McMansions and ever-more elaborate homes that popped up all over the landscape during the boom years are being crushed under the weight of their own bloated "over-...

I've done my best...I've reasoned, cajoled, analyzed, postulated, hypothesized, and rationcinated (look it up!). I've begged, pleaded, beseeched, implored, and supplicated. I have been telling you for months now that we are in an unprecedented time of opportunity for home buyers. As investor Warr...

Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made ~~ Otto Von Bismarck   The House and Senate reached an accord on the economic stimulus package this afternoon. The package was whittled down to $789 billion, significantly less that the $838 billion proposed by the Senate version and...

Of course the truth is that the congresspersons are too busy raising campaign money to read the laws they pass.  The laws are written by staff tax nerds who can put pretty much any wording they want in there.  I bet that if you actually read the entire vastness of the U.S. Tax Code, you'd find at...

As the Senate prepares to take a final vote on the economic stimulus package, there has been talk of trimming the $15,000 tax credit for homeowners that was proposed last week.

                      It never ceases to amaze me how many visitors to Blue Ridge have an experience akin to the one my wife and I had when we first visited this area. There’s a peace that fills your soul as you drive towards town. You just feel right here: calm, centered. It’s as though you’ve ...

As a real estate agent in the tri-state area (GA, TN, NC) I put a lot of mileage all over the countryside. In my travels throughout these beautiful Blue Ridge mountains, I run across a lot of old barns smattered across the countryside. They vary in shape and size, color and level of decrepidation...

In an effort to jump-start a housing market that's in precipitous decline, Senator Johnny Isakson, Republican of Georgia, sponsored an amendment to the economic stimulus package that is making its way through Congress. Under Isakson's provision, homeowners would receive a tax credit of up to $15,...

The New York Times recently ran an article in its "Your Second Home" section extolling the virtues of hot tubs. Funny, this particular article should have appeared now, as hot tubs have loomed large in my life over the past two weeks. I recently had lunch with two friends who shared their New Yea...
