real estate: Breathing Easy! Awarness of Radon Gases In The North Georgia Mountains - 02/13/09 12:13 PM
In dealing with a recent transaction, I have become very aware of the dangers involved with Radon Gases in North Georgia. Radon causes Lung Cancer and kills thousands of Americans every year, in Non-Smokers and Smokers alike. As a matter of fact, Radon is the number 1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates. Overall, Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Unfortunately I know this to be true, I lost my Mother-In-Law to lung cancer very sudden in the Spring of 2007. She never smoked a day in her life.
What Is Radon Gas And Where … (1 comments)

I want to go ahead and apologize a little bit in advance because you are going to think that I have absolutely lost my mind as you continue to read through this post. I am going to be jumping all over the place as I report to you exactly where we were as far back as 4 years ago when I got into Real Estate, where we are now, and of course where I think we are going.
As you can see from this first Graph, we have seen a very sharp decline in sales here in Union County progressively over … (0 comments)

real estate: Union County Taking Action To Reduce Emergency Response Time - 01/29/09 04:31 AM
In an attempt to Reduce Emergency Response Time in Union County, residents may have to put up with a little aggravation. There will be more than 13,000 marker signs put in place throughout Blairsville and all of Union County. This means that your current address may change. “Boy, I am glad I didn’t spend the money for that new Address Sign Engraved with our Family name on it!” I am sure that this is going to inconvenience a lot of folks out there, but an aggravation that could even save their Mountain Home or even their own lives.
There are 2 Very Important … (0 comments)

real estate: Satisfied Clients Within Coosawattee River Resort In Ellijay Georgia - 01/28/09 08:37 AM


"Having purchased and sold over 20 homes around the country ... we have seen the highs and lows of the realtor world and Melissa and I both agree the efforts you placed in selling our mountain property proved beyond doubt you are at the top of the class.  So many of the other realtors in the market just "show" properties  and the striking difference with your approach is you actually "sell" the property to the other realtors & buyers in the market. Simply put you are difference maker in the transaction. As you know we made a mistake in not … (2 comments)

real estate: Union County Property Taxes Will NOT Increase In 2009 - 01/13/09 03:06 AM
In a recent article written by Norman Cooper in our North Georgia News, he quoted Union County Commissioner Lamar Paris as saying this, "we have projected our 2009 expenses to be covered without a Property Tax Increase."
Based upon a public hearing that was held back in December of 2008 where Lamar Paris went over Union County's budget for 2009, he also stated "...we are thankful with the economic slow down that we will be able to maintain our 2008 budget."
This is great news for Union County Residents here in the North Georgia Mountains. Last years Tax Increase was substantial … (1 comments)

real estate: Get Out And Vote. At Least You Are Not Shredded Waste! - 11/03/08 04:49 AM


Let me introduce myself, my name is Chad and I am nothing more than mere shredded paper waste by definition. I was created by holes left in paper, and I became famous in the 2000 United States Presidential Election. Now it is my understanding that there are many forms of chads, there is the pregnant chad, the dimpled chad, and one of my favorites and probably the most famous....the hanging chad.
Now I could sit and wonder why my parents decided to name me after shredded waste, but to give them the benefit of the doubt, I am not sure … (0 comments)

So, How In The World Do You Just Get An Offer?
May 29th, 2008Categories: North Georgia Cabin Seller's reVIEWS, North Georgia Real Estate VIEWS
It's no surprise to anyone that we are in a Buyer's Market. I have been really concerned with the lack of showings that my client's properties have been receiving, there is no doubt. But what about those that are being shown occasionally? How can I help my client's just get an offer?
1. Price It Right!
In this market you have to be priced at the lower end of your realistic price range. In addition to be … (13 comments)

real estate: Agency Relationships....Do You Understand Them? - 03/23/08 01:58 PM
It's important to understand what legal responsibilities your real estate salesperson has to you and to other parties in the transaction. It is equally as important for you to know what agency relationship it is that you have with your salesperson or agent. If it has not been explained to you in a way that you fully understand, or you simply do not know what type of agency relationship it is that you have, if any, then you need to stop and ask before moving forward with your agent.
I suppose that every agent has their own way of working with customers.

real estate: I Don't Believe It Has Any Square Feet! - 03/18/08 01:49 PM
I will never forget that one beautiful summer like Thanksgiving day at Maw's house. We had just sat down for the feast, and then there was a knock at the door. We weren't too sure who it was, and after a few seconds passes by, my Mom asks me to go see who it is. Well, we had forgotten all about the sign in the front of the house that read...For Sale By Owner. Can you believe that my Grandmother's house was once a FSBO? Anyway, I remember the conversation between Maw and the potential home buyer going something like this...
Buyer: Hello … (11 comments)
