        The search for the Holy Grail in Real Estate is like an Indiana Jones adventure. What is the best way to sell homes? What is that secret formula that will unlock people’s desires to buy or sell a home with you? All the books, CDs, and mega Face book sites all share ideas about the new “better way”. I’m here to tell you the secret. Brace yourself. There is no one way to sell Real Estate. This business rewards activity. And what is surprising, is almost any activity done in Real Estate will work. Incredible agents commit to a process. That commitment almost always leads to success. I have met hundreds of agents with hundreds of systems that work. Some agents are incredible door knockers. Some have perfected the art of the Open House. There are agents in our business that will rand...

         Let’s face it. From 2003-2006, Sellers were bullies. No other word better describes them. I can use the word now because of the social awareness of bullying. Buyers wanting to make an offer on a home during this time, you are paying full price. And pray that I don’t make you go over the list price to get the home. You want me to pay your closing cost? Have you been drinking? The sellers mind set and attitude was ‘I just lost a bunch of money in the Stock market on the .dotcom bust’. I need a way to make it up and selling my home seems to be the perfect way. Don’t like the price of my home? Tough. The next buyer will. But then, a blessing in disguise came. The worst Real Estate crash in U.S. history. Reports say it began in November of 2007 and became very painful and costly to ...

    Shut up and buy… I mean drive!   To drive or not to drive? That is the question. If you have a track record of success doing something a particular way, why would you ever change it? Richmond Hill, GA is a small town consisting of approximately 18,000 people. Literally in 3 hours time, I can drive you through every neighborhood. If you’re a buyer client wanting to look at homes with me, wouldn't you want to drive to a particular neighborhood? Get a feel for the distance, the streetscape? Hey, is that an old car on blocks in the driveway? Is that a pet llama in that backyard? The useless chatter that realtors give to their clients as they’re driving them around town can contest even the most patient people. Listen, during our initial consultation or more likely the months of emails ...

My List Owns Me! List, list, LIST!  Everywhere I turn there is a new list. Sometimes I wonder if we are in the Real Estate business or the list making business. How do I prioritize that list? Is returning a phone call to a potential buyer more important than picking up my dry cleaning? I won’t have anything to wear if I don’t! And where do I write this list? Am I text savvy enough to have it on my phone or ipad? Hey wait, there’s 3 pieces of paper in my pocket with a list on them, where did they come from?! It seems like making a list is the only thing we are really good at, at times. I must admit that there is nothing more rewarding then checking items off a to-do list. I’m not saying the items are done, but I take pleasure in checking items off the list. Do you lie to yourself like I ...

Congratulations to the team at The Ford Plantation, only days after reopening for member play on Oct. 1, the Ford Plantation Club's golf course was named to Golf Digest's Best New Courses 2014  list.  "Much like Trent Jr. at Poppy Hills, (Pete) Dye replaced his own 30-year-old design with something of an entirely different style," wrote Ron Whitten, the Golf Digest architecture editor. "Gone are narrow fairways, railroad tie bulkheads and waste bunkers. The front 9 is still in trees, thinned considerably; the back 9 still on a savannah, now with more contour." World Golf Hall of Fame architect Pete Dye personally oversaw the year-long, $7 million-plus redesign at Ford, a property where he first built in the mid-1980s. Tim Liddy, a longtime Dye collaborator, was an associate on the proj...

If you are a runner, always scouting new routes to get in those miles... If you want a safe place to ride a bike and not mingle with vehicle traffic... If you are a parent  trying to keep you r children safe while walking... Or just a citizen that likes to take a walk to the store... GREAT NEWS!  At the Richmond Hill City Council meeting Oct. 7 the City Council approved the Richmond Hill Sidewalk Project. This will connect neighborhoods to schools, parks and retail establishments withing the city limits of Richmond Hill, GA. The project has already been bid out and the construction begins later this month! Richmond Hill Mayor Harold Fowler said his concern has been kids' safety, "however, walkable neighborhoods benefit all citizens. Residents in such neighborhoods tend to get more physi...

Penny Rafferty recently received a 5 Star customer service rating when she helped Troy McLeod find and buy a property in Richmond Hill, GA.  This is what Troy had to say about working with Penny: "Penny has been terrific. She has been with us every step of the way from finding a home to rent, finding land to purchase, identifying contractors, closing on our land in a very short time, and guiding us through the custom home building process. If you are looking for an agent, you would be hard pressed to find one with more integrity. She was always available, very quick to respond to any question, and demonstrated exceptional knowledge of the community we were wanting to live in.

Recently Jeanne Arlow received a 5 star rating from Schuyler Lee when she helped him sell his Richmond Hill, GA home, while relocating overseas.  "Jeanne Arlow is both personable and professional. She made us feel comfortable whenever we met with her or spoke with her - like we were her only clients. After speaking with us, and as we continued working together, Jeanne really got to know what our opinions were, where our priorities were, as sellers, that she could anticipate our needs with great accuracy, thereby making the process that much smoother. She was knowledgable about the market and provided guidance to us in a way that was not intrusive or domineering, and really allowed us to exercise our own agendas with purpose and the benefit of her advice, not just "what the realtor said"...

Why Does It Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me? “Silence is Golden”, is what I always tell my agents when we first walk, unaccompanied, through a home we are listing. That piece of advice always receives strange looks, until I further explain my position. Imagine showing a home and talking honestly with your buyer, only to be questioned by the Seller about specific comments that were made. ESP? Ears in the Walls? How did they know? Why would it surprise anyone, in this technology oversaturated world, that you might be recorded when you walk through a home? This is the “information age” and everything is instantaneous, on the internet, and the warning that “Big Brother” is watching means more now than it did in the days of Orson Wells. Cameras are the size of pens, hidden in teddy bears, a...

JF Gregory Park is located in the heart of Richmond hill and there is a strong sense of community around this park. The park has miles of trails for walking, cycling, running. There are bird watching platforms overlooking the marsh. You can catch a few fish or just take in the view. There are also organized community events like the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival or club events like the Jeep Club weekend and even private events like family gatherings. I hope that this video will give you a good overview of the park and why it adds immense value to the residents of Richmond Hill.    If you or someone you know is looking to live in Richmond Hill, please visit my website for more information www.RichmondHillHomesNow.com or www.MarkArlow.com.   Click this link to view homes For Sale in Ri...
