lawrenceville: Top 3 Suburbs of Atlanta For Relocation - 08/24/16 09:02 PM
It's a bit awkward title but how else do you say "the top 3 suburbs people relocate to in Atlanta Metro?"  I wanted to avoid "people" in the title.  
When you look at Google Searches there are 3 top cities that are routinely picked above all the others after Atlanta and I wanted to have a look at them. 
When someone is relocating to Atlanta, what cities do they consider?
No. 1 - Alpharetta, GA
Everyone's favorite spot is Alpharetta.  While prices are high (some of the highest in the state), Alpharetta has managed to weather the economy.   What was formerly a city … (1 comments)

lawrenceville: Lawrenceville - Gwinnett Braves Stadium gets a COOL name - 04/07/10 04:26 AM
The Atlanta Braves have signed a multi-million dollar deal for naming rights to the Gwinnett Braves ballpark in Lawrenceville.
The 16-year deal with Coolray Heating and Cooling will ultimately mean the county will get about a $4.5-million share over the life of the contract, county officials said. The deal also settles a more than year-long effort to sell the naming rights to the $64-million, publicly-financed structure.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Gwinnett County's contract with the Braves calls for the club to receive the first $350,000 annually paid in naming rights, the county to receive the next $350,000 and anything … (1 comments)

lawrenceville: Gwinnett County Parks Named Best In Nation - 12/08/08 01:22 AM
It typically happens on Highway 124.
I'm taking clients to show them potential homes and it happens.  "WHOA! What's that?" they ask.
What they are exclaiming about is one of the parks that make Gwinnett County the single best place to live OTP (or outside the permeter - Suburbs for us folk that are used to it).  Sure, Gwinnett County is known for the schools, which aslo known as the best in the state, but the "wow's!" come from the park system.
There are 39 parks in all with over 64 MILES of soft surface and paved trails.  Whether it's the … (0 comments)

lawrenceville: Chateau Elan Networking Group Responsible For $1.5 Milllion in Volume - 07/15/08 12:27 AM
Although we started this networking group back in May of '08, we didn't begin in earnest until Jan of '09.   Year to date I have had over 3 Million in referrals passed to me, with $1.5 Million currently listed.  Now one might look at that and suggest it has something to do with the Chateau Elan location.  Actually, no, most of the referrals have been first time home buyers or first time sellers.
The best referral so far has been from Jeff Powell of Professional Pool Service to list this beautiful home in Lawrenceville at 333 Brook Lea Cove, Lawrenceville GA.

lawrenceville: Foreclosure Trends In Georgia Real Estate - 03/24/08 01:05 PM
If you turn on the news today and listen to latest on the housing crisis you'll find that in March, Georgia will add another 7300 or so foreclosure/REO properties in the next 90 days.   While the inventory for foreclosures / REO properties increases (there are 214 available today in Lawrenceville), there is a great new trend occurring, that make me believe we'll be coming out of the Atlanta version of the housing "crisis." The "F" word has enticed many buyers to look into this avenue.  I get requests daily to look at foreclosures.  Corporate, Bank owned, investor owned, REOs all can … (0 comments)

lawrenceville: Blogging Turns Into A Spot In A Newspaper Article | Atlanta Journal Constitution Feature My Buyer's - 12/03/07 03:50 AM
I got a call during Turkey week from George Chidi doing an article about the market for the Atlanta Journal Consitution.  He went down a list at Active Rain and I was one of the few agents who had buyers actually buying.
He went on to feature a choice couple, Grant & Jenny Shaw.  A great first time home buying couple.   Originally, he said it was just a piece about the market, but it's skewed to make it look like Gwinnett is in a slump.  It may very well be slower, but you can still sell your home for top dollar, … (3 comments)

lawrenceville: Just Sold for Full Price In Lawrenceville! 587 Riverlanding Drive, Lawrenceville - 11/12/07 10:29 PM
 JUST SOLD! In Lawrenceville
This Lawrenceville home for sale, sold with a full price offer.  587 Riverlanding Drive, Lawrenceville GA in the RiverEdge Landing Subdivision off Old Norcross Road was an immaculate house.
When you calculate Seller Paid Closing costs and concessions, the seller got 98% of what they asked for.
Currently, in Lawrenceville, sellers are only getting 95% of what they ask for.  Even less when listed as a For Sale By Owner or with a discount company.  I'd say that's worth the fee charged for marketing, negotiations and closing coordination.

lawrenceville: Lawrenceville Real Estate Market Report - August 2007 | Lawrenceville Homes For Sale - 08/14/07 10:09 PM
August 15, 2007
Lawrenceville Real Estate seems like a bleak proposition, but with only a 80 day sell time there must be some sort of silver lining.
Currently there are over 2,800 active listings.  Yes, there actually that many.  It's a funny number, because according to some websites out there Lawrenceville doesn't even have that many people.  
Of those 2,800 plus homes in Lawrenceville, about 600 of them will sell in the next 90 days.   Currently we have over 375 homes in Lawrenceville under contract and waiting to close.  Another 313 homes have already closed for the month of June.

lawrenceville: Gwinnett County Real Estate Market Update - August 2007 - 08/14/07 09:56 PM
August 15, 2007
Gwinnett County Real Estate has always been the tortoise in the great real estate race.  Never too slow, but never fast either.  This is still the case.  In over 15 years of Real Estate, Gwinnett has been a buyer's market.  It's a bit more of one now.  County wide, sellers are getting just under 97% of their asking price. Although, the numbers are at a new high (for discounts), the Jarvis Team has experienced a rate of 1% better.   Although, this is a bit of self promotion, it's also worth noting that a Realtor (or Team) that works hard for … (0 comments)
