History of a Painting, Tilley Park,
Cartersville, Georgia.
While watching movies growing up, we see places that are the ideal places to live.  Of course that's only in the movies. The quaint little towns, with the parks, gazebos and Ferris wheels, rides and such. Well the story of the Tilley Park painting started in 1983, when I was commissioned to paint a painting of a covered bridge in Euharlee, Georgia. In order to get to the covered bridge, we had to drive through Cartersville, Georgia.

We have to understand and assume our clients don't know anything about buying, or selling Real Estate and we must explain the processes as simply as we can.
