north georgia mountains: Today in The North Georgia Mountains - 01/31/10 11:52 PM
It is sunny and going to be 50 today here in the North Georgia mountains. I mention this for a reason. Yesterday and the day before I posted great ice pictures. A couple of weeks ago I posted some pictures after our winter storm. But today it is great
North Georgia gives you mountain living and 4 seasons. Byt the bitter and lasting cold and snow are not a feature of where we live. In the summer at my elevation , about 2500 feet, we may have used the A/C the total of 1 week. Weather wise North Georgia gives you … (3 comments)

I am saying listed however it is not yet listed on the Market. This is a rare opportunity to own a home with a million dollar view. The asking price is 990,000 so you could say you get a million dollar view with the house thrown in for free!!!

The white building you see in the distance is the Amicalola lodge. The line to the left of the building is Amicalola fall. These falls are the highest  falls East of the Mississippi. Also the Appalachian trail starts in that area so your views will be lovely for a long time … (5 comments)

north georgia mountains: Looking to start a Real Estate Career in the North Georgia Mountains pt 6 - 08/22/09 10:16 AM
After the sale
You have a contract on a house and are going to a closing. What more is there to do ? There are a lot of things you should be doing. But since this is about the North Georgia Mountains we will limit those things to things that are unique to our area
1 Wild Life management. You decide to put out bird feeders and maybe a humming bird feeder or 2.  Then one morning you walk to your window and see a 300pound Bear munching away. I have seen them climb up deck polls, the metal ones, over … (0 comments)

Last night we had the Thunder, lightening,  and rain as the storm front moved through. But this morning it was calm and really pretty. We were up early and took this picture from our back deck as the sun started to come up over the mountains. Want to know why I am so blessed? Look below.


north georgia mountains: Looking to start a career in Real Estate in the North Georgia mountains Pt 4 - 08/19/09 12:33 AM
In this post in the series we are going to cover the "tools of the trade." I am not talking about lock box keys and things we all have in common. But let's talk about things a mountain Realtor should have.
1 A compass. This is a really important gadget for a mountain Realtor. You are standing on a deck looking into the mountains with a buyer and they say. "What direction are we facing?" If you think you are going to look for the moss on the North side of the trees forget it Hawk Eye. That does not work. … (4 comments)

I need more than one Camera. The other day when a mother Turkey and her chicks walked across the road and I did not have my camera I vowed to keep my camera in my car. That worked well as I was able to post Bear photos earlier this month. But then a fawn walked across my yard and the camera was in the car ARRGGGHHHH.

north georgia mountains: Remember the Movie? A Mountain Scene - 05/20/09 08:12 AM
A very famous movie , Sgt York, with a very famous actor Gary Cooper is a classic. For those of you who remember the movie The whole trouble York got into was over a piece of bottom land. In the mountains bottom land used to be the most valuable. Why? because it was flat less rocky and you could farm it. Look at the photo below.      Pickens County is where this scene was shot. Take a look at the lush green and growing grass. This is bottom land. It is surrounded by mountains. Look how dense the grass is. Just as … (4 comments)

north georgia mountains: 9 Million - 05/18/09 01:08 AM
Over the next couple of weeks armed with my camera I will be doing photos of the area. I have concentrated on Big Canoe and now will branch out. But let me set the table a bit in this post. Georgia in the last census was 9 million strong. Now think about other states 9 million just about covers a metropolitan area !!! We are about the size of New York State. The greater Atlanta area has 4 million of the 9. So what this means is there are some great open spaces in this state. In the mountains where i … (5 comments)

north georgia mountains: Clouds in Big Canoe - 03/24/09 07:20 AM
No matter how tough it gets sometimes looking out my back window and seeing these clouds cheers me up. In a way the clouds are the mountains breathing much in the same way you would see your breath on a cold day. The mountains themselves live and breathe through storms and sunshine. Hope you enjoy the photo.

north georgia mountains: Seller expectations, Selling Land - 04/20/08 02:51 AM

This picture is just one view of a tract that is about 150 acres we are working to sell. We have a buyer !!!!! But the seller is the problem. When selling tracts there are good things and bad things. Unfortunately some of the things that sellers think are good are bad. These are things to consider when working a land deal.
1 First off there is a lot of pasture flat land on this tract. That is a good thing. Why, because clearing costs and grading costs(development costs) will be lower. A seller may consider the fact that the land is … (3 comments)
