Set on a sprawling lot of nearly 2 acres and surrounded by pecan trees and dogwoods, a Historic Marietta Home just became available for the first time in decades. This charming farmhouse was originally built in 1890 and is one of only a few properties from this era which still stand today. An addition was finished in 2000 along with a completely new roof, windows and upgraded electrical.
This property is truly one of a kind and will make a special home for its next owner. With over 2,800 square feet of living space, two car detached garage and enormous corner lot, there is plenty of room to expand and enjoy the privacy of your very own historic farmhouse.
Two original brick fireplaces still remain and late century hardwood…

One thing I love about living in Buckhead are the world-class restaurants. My favorites are Canoe (right on the banks of the Chattahoochee, the most perfect brunch!), Chops (amazing steaks), and Rama 5 (hole-in-the-wall Thai place with amazing coconut chicken soup). Yelp is the site that I go to for restauraunt reviews and they have a comprehensive listings and ratings for 258 Buckhead Restaurants! Enjoy!

My clients often ask me questions about the demographics of the Buckhead area. From my personal experience of living here, I can tell you that people tend to be caring, friendly, stable, and wealthy.
Personal experiences aside, the statistics for the Buckhead area are impressive and Onboard Informatics has compiled a lot of the data below. The charts below compare two of Buckhead's eight Zip Codes, 30327 and 30305. The former consisting of quiet leafy streets and large estate lots on the Western half of Buckhead, and the latter being many of the high-rise condos and single-family homes that cluster around the shopping and commercial heart of Buckhead.

Robert (or the "Flower Man" as he is known in Buckhead) has recently passed away. Robert was a fixture in Buckhead for nearly 25 years as he quietly sold flowers from a traffic island at the intersection of W. Paces Ferry and Northside Pkway. Whether I drove by in the middle of the day, or late at night, I could always count on the flower man being there, quietly pacing and waiting for his next customer. When the light would change, Robert would direct traffic and encourage people on, he obviously saw that as his second job. The Ajc wrote a great article about him and told how every governer since the 80's has stopped to buy flowers from him, the governors mansion is just up the street. Robert decided to stay in…

Foreclosure notices across metro Atlanta hit an all time high in March as 12,568 home owners received the bad news. In the 13-county area, Cobb county was 4th highest on the list, which includes Smyrna and Vinings Real Estate.
Though it's bad news for home owners who don't pay their mortgage, it certainly means there will be some great deals becoming available in the near future for prospective buyers. Banks will be listing the homes for sale once the foreclosure process is complete. One trend that is beginning to develop is banks are becoming more competitive in their list prices. Everything is negotiable but quite often they list homes at or below market value in order to move the properties quickly. In fact, they quite often receive multiple…
