The "Lunch Lady" did NOT have an easy job.  One of the reasons that I embarked on my career in real estate is that I wanted to be able to spend more time IN the lives of my children.  And today has definitely been a rung in that ladder.  I volunteered to help the small kids with lunch at Arcado E...

Back a few months ago, my neighbor had a large tree come down in his yard.  Several of us came out to give him a hand.  To start with, the tree needed to get out of the street.  And then it needed to get down to a managable size to deal with.  In all, I think there were four or five chainsaws run...

It was one of the first clear words from our oldest son...  OK, it wasn't that clear, but we knew what he meant...  Boosters... I mean Bruster's... After a game at Parkview, a lap around the Mountain Park Park or even a hike up to the top of Stone Mountain, what could be better than a scoop from ...

I was talking with a client last night... a first time home buyer.  He wants to take advantage of the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit (FTHBTC).  As we were looking through the results, one thing became VERY clear...  In the price range, foreclosures and short sales dominate the market.  Of 40 li...

For buyers, getting to know a home is part of the process.  Seeing it, feeling it, walking around the taking it in...  That is great if you are around the corner, or even across town... but what if you are unable to take that time to tour scores of properties before pulling the trigger?  Maybe yo...

I have been visiting Millenium Cycle Works since before they moved to their current location.  They always seem to have a lot of cool cycles in stock.  Cruisers, Sport Bikes, Dirt Bikes, ATVs, UTVs, Scooters and even Personal Water Craft.  They carry Kawasaki and Yamaha motorcycles and other vehi...

Earlier today I read a blog my Anne Rains about a house she took a buyer to see... it was a mess.  It had smells.  It had clutter.  They left.  It reminded me of a house.  I was six.  And it was a cool house... in that 70s sort of way.  That was only appropriate, since it was the 70s.  it had a p...

Back in February, 2008, I attended an event for agents at Legends at Parkview.  At that time I was impressed with the quality of the homes offered in the community.  I was also impressed with the philosophy of the builder, Sean Mayfield of Mayfield Homes.  I also liked the style of the homes, and...

I took a few minutes today to stop in to Garner Creek at Parkview, in Lilburn, GA.  I have been there a few times before, just checking things out. Each time there several more homes that are built and sold.  But I hadn't taken the time to really check out the properties that were available.  The...

I held an open house today in Lilburn, on 590 Baltimore Ave.  During the open house I had the opportunity to speak with several first time home buyers.  The conversations with first time home buyers in Lilburn, GA, were certainly enlightening...  Keep in mind that the home I as holding open was p...

Dogs in Lilburn, GA, want to walk, run and play...  They want to go to the park...  Luckily, Ronald Reagan Park at Five Forks has a pair of doggy recreational areas for our sniffy companions.   The two areas are set aside for dogs under or over 20 pounds.  There is also a dog run that connects th...

from LilburnDwellings Have you been to the Mountain Park Aquatic Center?  If you live around Lilburn or Mountain Park, I'm sure you have noticed there on Rockbridge Road near Five Forks, just up the road from Kroger.  But have you been there? It is a great facility.  In addition to the community ...

I had a buyer call me recently.  He wanted info on a property I had listed.  It wasn't what he was looking for, so I asked what he was trying to find...  Reluctantly, he shared a little with me.  I knew of another property that was listed with another agent.  I told him I would be happy to show i...

Times are rough... they are rough for many of us... especially in the real estate industry.  We are finding our belts and sucking them in a few notches...  But not just in the real estate industry.  Last night I was talking with some friends that are in the business of state and local government....

  Image via Wikipedia I just got an email from the production company that does House Hunters for HGTV.  They are calling for buyers that are ready to buy.  The specific quote is "in the late stages of buying."  I would assume that would mean that they are looking for people that know what they w...

Probably not... But that doesn't mean that people aren't trying it... and it doesn't mean that people aren't getting in trouble for it. Here is the way it works (and it all sounds so legit...): Mr. and Mrs. Consumer buy a house and get a mortgage from MonsterMegaMortgageCompany (MMMC). MMMC sells...

Changes might be coming... and they aren't good. Buried in the 1500 page bill is a very long section on the Retrofit for Energy and Environmental Performance program, REEP for short. It calls for varied provisions such as "Green Guidelines" for new and existing homes, Federal Code Inspectors for ...

Ok, don't panic, it doesn't end until December 1st, 2009.  But don't get complacent, either...  That is sooner than you think. If you aren't familiar with the FTHBTC (First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit), here is a little reading.  The first thing to know is that not owning a home for the last 36 mo...

I'm beating my head on a wall...  Little did I know that I needed 100 fans in order to register a vanity page URL.  And I asked a few friends that are up on things... and they didn't seem to know that little tidbit either.  So, here is the hot tip... if you don't have 100 fans, you can't register...
