alpharetta: Getting Noticed at Yard Sales in Roswell, Georgia - 10/28/08 02:22 PM
I love to hit the yard sales in the Roswell, Alpharetta and East Cobb County areas. I get a thrill finding great buys, checking out the neighborhoods and seeing what's for sale around me. Wearing my RE/MAX pin and sporting RE/MAX Magnets on my car, I also use Yard Sales to prospect.I want all that are around me to know that I am a Real Estate Agent.I chat with folks and learn why they're having a yard sale. Are they downsizing and getting ready to sell their house?Do they need an agent? If not, do they know anyone that does?If the house is already on the market, (6 comments)
alpharetta: Bad Weather in Roswell Georgia - 02/27/08 05:07 PM
Yesterday, around 6am, a fierce storm tore through Roswell and East Cobb county - my area of town. It hit other parts of Georgia as well. It's estimated that there was $10 million in damages throughout the state. Many homes were damaged as trees were uprooted or snapped and fell on them. There were injuries but I have not heard of any deaths, thank G-d. As many of you know, I work at night (midnight - 8am) at AT&T and sell Real Estate during the day. Between 6 and 6:30am, I heard the rain pounding on the windows in the Data Center where I work in Alpharetta. (4 comments)
Our calendar is meant to track a Solar year and after 4 years, those 4 extra 1/4 days add up. The reason we have a Leap Year is to allow the calendar to catch up to the solar year. February 29th, Leap Day, is added to the calendar every 4 years.
But wait....This still doesn't quite add up. The exact length of a solar year is actually 11 minutes and 14 seconds less than 365 ¼ days. So Part II of correcting (13 comments)
alpharetta: Would you buy a house that has been moved? - 01/31/08 02:34 PM
Would you buy a house that has been moved? Have you ever been driving down the highway and seen a house on a flatbed being towed? Did you wonder why it was being moved? Or want to know where it was going?

According to an article on www.msn.com about houses on the move and what it takes to move them, houses are moved for many reasons. Making room for a new home, removing a home from the path of a new industrial development, or to make room for a new townhouse (8 comments)
alpharetta: Open Houses - I love them. - 10/15/07 09:19 AM
Inspired by Susan Walters post about open houses, I'd like to share the results of the Open House I held yesterday in Alpharetta Georgia. I don't have any Listings. Why? Because I haven't been in the Real Estate business long enough to have acquired any Listings. Not for lack of trying, mind you. It just hasn't happened yet. But that doesn't mean that I don't sell houses - because I do!I hold Open Houses for other agents in my office all the time.My preference is to hold open Foreclosed Homes as they seem to attract more attention. I do not expect the listing agent to (6 comments)
