Within walking distance to Smyrna Market Village, Grady Manor is one of Smyrna's most popular new construction neighborhoods.
One of the last new construction homes just went under contract last week, which leaves only two for sale in this great little community.
The first is a corner lot home at 2703 Grady Street and is the last of the brand new homes. It has a beautiful brick exterior with high end upgrades throughout the interior.
The second home is a foreclosure at 2691 Grady Street and larger than most of the others in this neighborhood. It needs some cleaning and new paint interior but is otherwise a great deal for this location and quality of construction.
If you're looking for new construction homes in Smyrna or are just…

One of the biggest topics of discussion right now in Atlanta is the redistricting of the public schools. It has caught some people by surprise and others were expecting the issue. There are a number of great public schools in the Atlanta area. This combined with it being such a great time to buy a house in these areas as well as other areas of Atlanta it has put an increased demand on a few of these schools. Not to worry though. The Atlanta Public School board is meeting to fix the issue. In fact one of the solutions may include building a brand new elementary school very close to Buckhead! As of today there are two options on the table that the Atlanta Public School board is deciding between and from the people that I…

I hope everyone had a good holiday. In this last week before the new year begins many people try to come up with a new year's resolution. One to definitely consider is to finally take advantage of this buyer's market before it is over. The interest rates have continued to stay low and there are still amazing deals. For example, this house in Marietta Country Club has just had a drastic reduction in price. It has amazing details, an incredible kitchen and a spectacular yard. This is definitely worth taking a look.
Happy New Year!

Did you know that there are more than two dozen fly-in communities in Georgia? Some are even closer and more affordable than you might think. You can literally land in your own neighborhood, taxi up to your own front door and park a plane in your garage.
As many of you know, I am active in commercial aviation as well as residential real estate and have a passion for both. So it's always exciting when the two come together. My personal favorite fly-in community is Heaven's Landing, located in Rabun County, just a few miles north of beautiful Lake Burton. Some 1.5 acre lots are now for sale as low as $199,000.
If you want to be a little closer to Atlanta, then Lyons Landing is another great option about 30 miles west of the city. Prices…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. Now that we have all filled our stomachs with turkey and dressing and watched our teams hopefully win their big rivalry game it's time to get serious about that house hunt. I know this month can get a little hectic, but it can be a great time to take a day and look at houses. There are so many beautiful houses around Atlanta and just think they will have all of their gorgeous decorations right now. You can see them at their best! These are just a couple that I found that are great deals:
The first one is located in Alpharetta in the beautiful Hermitage subdivision. It has approximately 1 acre and an incredible master suite. This house is absolutely…

While previewing properties for a client recently I came across a beautifully sprawling historic estate in Marietta. As I entered the winding drive and stepped up the columned entrance, it felt a bit like slipping back in time to 1940's California.
Every inch of this property has character. From the crystal chandeliers set in domed ceilings, to wide planked floors and terraced gardens, 275 S Woodland Drive is one of a kind.
True to its rambler style construction, the master suite and bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the home, with the foyer, private study, piano room and kitchen all filling the space between. There is even a small wine cellar in the basement to store those aging bottles for special occasions.

Atlanta has so much to offer, and even though I have lived here for quite a while, I am still discovering new things all the time. One of my friends introduced me to a growing phenomenom - food trucks. If you have not yet seen a food truck, I am sure you will soon. A food truck isn't anything like a hot dog stand, which may be what you're picturing. Rather, it looks like a small winnebago with a giant opening on the side - where you order and receive food - and a full kitchen in back.
Each truck specializes in a specific type of food. For example, there may be a panini truck or taco truck and so on. Food trucks featuring BBQ food are very popular. Food trucks have quickly taken over the dining and social scene in popular neighborhoods like…

As we approach the end of 2011, it is still a strong buyer’s market across Atlanta. Mortgage rates have dropped again since the summer and while prices are struggling to recover, certain properties seem to attract all the attention. We are always looking to grow our business, so if you or those you know are in need of professional real estate advice please feel free to give me a call.
So what’s the latest with home prices?
Home prices are actually up nearly 7% in the North Atlanta area around Buckhead and the number of homes sold is up more than 10%, which is good news. Smyrna and Vinings prices are still down more than 10% for the year, but there are a number of great homes pending sale right now, so I do expect the average price and volume…
