From the Front Door - Selling Your Home Part 2 - 01/28/10 08:36 AM
Did you know that prospective buyers decide within 30 seconds of entering a home if the home will work for them? By using your senses, make sure those first impressions are positive. The first sense is smell- does your home smell fresh and clean or like last night's dinner? If you have pets, are the litter boxes and dog beds far away from the front door and clean? Today there are many good products that remove odors, so take advantage of them. Add a well placed lightly-scented candle near the front door. Some people are allergic to the oils in some of the newer plug-in type air fresheners, (0 comments)

What is an Active Adult Community? - 01/22/10 08:36 PM
Presently working with someone who wants to downsize due to kids growing up and not wanting to take care of a large home and yard. Suggested they may want to look at an active adult community. The response was I want my own place. So what is an active adult community? An active adult community is a neighborhood built primarily for mature adults. Some neighborhoods have age restrictions; however, most do not in the metro Atlanta area. When these communities are initially marketed by the builder, their advertising emphasizes the features attractive to active adults and does not encourage families with (2 comments)
Roswell GA Recreation and Parks System Excels - 01/21/10 08:51 AM
Was taking a look at the Roswell GA city website and found a wealth of information on the various activities available for both residents and non-residents (who can pay a bit more to participate). Roswell has some great facilities including East Roswell Park, Hembree Park and the Roswell Area Park. In addition, there are numerous activities for Active Adults (50+) at the Roswell Adult Recreation Center.
Year round there are seasonal sports leagues for youth and adults, plus classes for a variety of interests from dance, fitness, drawing and painting, photography, crafts and more. Check out the Winter activity brochure (0 comments)
First Impressions Count When Selling Your Home - 01/19/10 03:01 PM
We all know first impressions are the most important....especially when selling your home. You want buyers who are excited to be at your home and wanting to see more. Since the front of your home is the first thing they see, what can you do to make that impression exceptional? Start with the shrubs...are they pruned and attractive? Is there fresh mulch or pine straw in the bed? If anything is dead or dying remove. Can a prospective owner see the front door from the street and driveway? Do some shrubs or plantings need to be removed? The all important grass....mow and edge. If (0 comments)
Arts Center planned for Woodstock GA - 01/17/10 08:28 AM
It looks like a recently neglected property that was a victim of the economic downturn in Woodstock GA now has a chance to become a major attraction and asset for the city. The Woodstock City Council has approved a memorandum of understanding to turn a foreclosed property on Elm Street just west of downtown into a cultural arts complex. The proposed Elm Street Cultural Arts Village would include a visual arts center for galleries and exhibits, a "black box" theater for acting and intimate performances plus four acres of undeveloped greenspace for recreation and outdoorevents. The greenspace would connect to a (0 comments)
Milton government provides road conditions update - 01/14/10 07:20 AM
If you live or work in metro Atlanta, you know doubt had concerns about the cold weather and driving conditions the last few days. And maybe, like me, you find it easy to criticize our local governments. However, I wanted to take a minute to compliment the City of Milton for providing timely email updates about the conditions of our local roads during the snow and ice event. I recently signed up to be on the City of Milton's mailing list and was pleasantly surprised to receive daily updates on the condition of the various roads around the city. The Milton (0 comments)
Looking for a simpler life? Perhaps an active adult community with ranch condos might be perfect place. The Orchards of Windward is a wonderful community off Highway 9 between Windward Parkway and Bethany Road. These two and three bedroom single level homes are just the right size. High ceilings, heavy moldings, and attention to details make these homes warm and inviting. Fireside Great Rooms and sunrooms give you space to spread out. 42 inch cabinets in the kitchen provide plenty of storage. All homes have a two car garage and driveway for parking. The neighborhood includes a clubhouse, pool, and green (0 comments)

Don't forget about new Alpharetta & Milton zip code 30009 - 01/07/10 08:01 AM
With little fanfare, the United States Postal Service announced in the summer of 2008 a new zip code for the southern portion of Alpharetta (and a tiny piece of Milton GA) - zip code 30009. While the zip code was created due to growth in the area, unfortunately there is no new post office available to the public planned for the area. If you've ever been to the existing post office serving Alpharetta and Milton, you'll know there is a serious need for another facility, but it's doubtful one will be built in the foreseeable future.

Woodstock has taken another great step forward in assuring a better quality of life for its residents- with a huge assist from the Cherokee County Commissioners.
