I've been in real estate since I was licensed in 1979 in New York, and dabbled in it in the 1980's, and in Atlanta since 1992.  It is all I do for a living aside from an occasional speaking engagement.  So the long and the short of it is I've been around real estate long enough to notice a few trends.  One thing that had me thinking this last week were the gifts, the cards, the gift cards, the gift baskets that normally flood the real estate office during the holiday times of the year.  Normally there are cakes, bottles of wine, home made baskets of cookies, candies, baskets of fruit, catered food platters, luncheons, incentives, invitations to fantastic Holiday parties.  Many of these gifts are to say thanks and appreciation for the business, or are a request to earn your future busine...

It seems bank failures are getting to be a regular occurrence here in North Atlanta.  This is getting old.  Haven Trust Bank of Duluth, Georgia, was closed this evening by the Georgia by the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance that gave receivership to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. which then sold it to BB&T Corp. of Winston - Salem, North Carolina to protect depositors. Haven Trust Bank will reopen four offices northeast of Atlanta on Dec. 15 as branches of BB&T.  This makes the 25th bank failure this year in the US.  In just a little over a year 5 of the failed banks were in Georgia with the failure of Net Bank in Alpharetta last year.  At that time NetBank was the 4th largest bank failure in US history.  Another bank was seized by the FDIC today - Sanderson State Bank in ...
