Lane's Blog - Looking out from the garage

By
Real Estate Agent - Century 21 Results Realty
Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.

Earlier today I read a blog my Anne Rains about a house she took a buyer to see... it was a mess.  It had smells.  It had clutter.  They left.  It reminded me of a house.  I was six.  And it was a cool house... in that 70s sort of way.  That was only appropriate, since it was the 70s.  it had a p...

Not too far from Lilburn is Discover Mills.  It sits in a triangle bounded by I-85, GA120 and Sugarloaf Parkway.  And of course the firs tthink one thinks of when talking about a mall is shopping...  But honestly, there are a lot more fun things to do there. It is a hidden gem in Gwinnett County....

I took a few minutes today to stop in to Garner Creek at Parkview, in Lilburn, GA.  I have been there a few times before, just checking things out. Each time there several more homes that are built and sold.  But I hadn't taken the time to really check out the properties that were available.  The...

I held an open house today in Lilburn, on 590 Baltimore Ave.  During the open house I had the opportunity to speak with several first time home buyers.  The conversations with first time home buyers in Lilburn, GA, were certainly enlightening...  Keep in mind that the home I as holding open was p...

Since I specialize in homes with big garages in Gwinnett County, Georgia, it seems only appropriate that every once in a while I take a look at some of the available homes and highlight some good deals.  And there are some exceptional deals...  (because of MLS rules, I can't directly promote indi...

Do you ever just want to dance to the news?  I don't... or at least I didn't...  This was really fun, though and will give me a new little spin on the news.  BTW, I haven't really paid much thought as to whether they are coming down on the left or the right in regards to the actual issues present...

The Duluth Ice Forum is a great break from the heat and humidity here in the Atlanta area.  Just think... the temperature outside is hoving in the 90s... or hotter.  In order for it to be muggy, the humidity would have to drop 10%.  What better way to get your cool on than to go ice Skating...
