lake oconee: Who Knew Continuing Ed Could Be So Fun? Lake Oconee, GA - 06/30/11 03:11 PM
Coldwell Banker Lake Oconee
Who Knew Continuing Ed Could Be So Fun? No matter where you live in this great country, if you are an active Realtor then at some point you have to take continuing education courses. Our local Board of Realtors offered two courses today and I figured, why not? The last thing I need to do is look up in November, way short on my hours, and be in a huge rush to get them completed. And no matter who you are you also probably do not get as excited about going to continuing education classes as you … (8 comments)

lake oconee: Big Day For Me-Sold My Very First Home!!! - 06/25/11 03:41 AM
Yesterday was a very big day for me as I sold my very first home as a Realtor! 6 months in, a lot of long, hard hours and days wondering if it was ever, ever going to pay off, and it finally has. It was an incredible feeling leaving that closing and an emotional one at that. Naturally I didn't let anyone else see that side of it but as I got in my car to leave, I headed to Publix to grab a 6 pack for celebration, and it hit me. It was like I had been justified or something. … (88 comments)

lake oconee: Pay It Foward- Super 8 Movie leads to Super Frustration! - 06/23/11 03:25 AM
Pay It Forward-Super 8 Movie leads to Super Frustration. Last night Drew and I went to the movies. We hardly ever go to the movies. It's expensive. We eat too much popcorn. We have a large, rather costly tv at home that we paid a lot of money for so we can sit our happy butts on the couch and watch movies. And lastly, well, the inevitable is bound to always happen but I'll get to that in a minute.
Groupon, however, recently offered a special where you could get two tickets and a large popcorn for like $13. Drew went … (2 comments)

lake oconee: 4th of July Lake Country Freedom Festival-Lake Oconee, Georgia - 06/20/11 05:27 AM
Ryan Mozzone was once your average kid who loved to play soccer, hang out with his friends and family, and water ski on the lake. But on January 12th, 2007 his life changed forever when he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. At the time Ryan was just 12 years old and when he’d much rather be battling it out on the soccer field, instead he was in a fight against his own body. His white blood cells decided that his beta cells in his pancreas did not belong and his body quit producing insulin which in turn led to his … (3 comments)

lake oconee: Pay It Forward-The Tortoise and The Realtor - 06/19/11 09:59 AM
Pay It Forward-The Tortoise and The Realtor. Not once, not twice, but THREE times this week while out driving around working I drove up on turtles trying to get from one side of the road to the other. The first turtle had barely even started it's trek. Poor little fella had a long way to go. As I crested a hill I happened to notice him off to the left of my car and he quickly closed himself up in his shell in defense. I slowed down and, after checking to see if there were any cars behind me, put my … (6 comments)

As a Realtor I spend my days helping people realize that living on Lake Oconee is the best place in the world to be. With Lake Oconee as my canvas, it's not a hard picture to paint, I assure you. After six months in a condo, this past weekend my fiance, Drew, and I moved into our own lakefront property. Now I can start living the lifestyle I so often talk about! Perfect timing too as warmer days seem here to stay. In recent weekends activity on the lake has picked up dramatically. Our nine award winning golf courses around the … (5 comments)

lake oconee: Unique Offline Advertising Strategies-Setting Yourself Apart - 04/04/11 04:34 AM
Unique Offline Advertising Strategies and Setting Myself Apart is something I think about on a daily basis. Back and forth, back and forth you hear the constant argument of is paper dead. Will offline advertising in magazines/newspapers/flyers ever make a Realtor money again? Sure, it'll make you some money. Just not the money it would have made you years ago. You'd have to be buried twenty feet in the sand to not realize the effects that the Internet has had on advertising and marketing. Everybody who's anybody is all over the Internet and using it's powers to advertise and reach people … (16 comments)

lake oconee: Customer Satisfaction - 01/12/11 06:21 AM
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, customer DISsatifaction with banks has continued to plummet four years in a row and more and more consumers are switching over to try their hand at a cash only lifestyle. About 9 million US households are in fact doing just that citing high fees, protection for themselves, and bad service as reasoning behind the move and their unhappiness.
In turn, this got me wondering...how many buyers/sellers out there are dissatisfied with their real estate agent? Enough so to take their business elsewhere, cancel the deal altogether, or turn their home into a … (0 comments)
