towne lake: What's going on in 30189? - 12/05/16 07:16 AM

I like to look at the above graphic. It looks like a race car dashboard to me. And what it says is interesting. Some metrics are racing ahead like median sales price, and others are lagging behind, like active listings.
A quick summary of the above shows us that in the Woodstock zip code area 30189, the number closed sales are running a bit behind the 5 year average. We are in a slower time of the year. New listings are up over their 5 year average. This is great for buyers who have been dealing with a severe shortage of inventory to … (2 comments)

towne lake: Back to Simpler Times...Again. - 09/09/16 12:56 AM
Den Boer Homes just sent out the second in a series of monthly mailers. Like the first one (Simpler Times) and all the rest to come, we featured the same photographer. These mail pieces are supposed to offer the recipients a cute picture that they might wish to hang on to, put up on their refrigerator, and enjoy. It will also hopefully remind them to call den Boer Homes when they need a Real Estate agent!
The front of the card was purposefully kept low key from the stand point of asking for business. The back of the card shows the … (2 comments)

towne lake: Towne Lake Hills Update - 08/22/16 10:30 PM
There are several interrelated subdivisions in Woodstock Georgia called Towne Lake Hills. There is an East, West, South, and North Towne Lake Hills. The East side has the amenities and golf course club house. The North generally is smaller in area and has larger, higher priced homes while the South has in general, smaller, lower priced homes.
All these communities are well kept with nice lawns and tree lined drives. On a recent drive through I saw many people out enjoying a walk, or playing golf, tennis, or swimming. It really is a great community to live in.

towne lake: Back to Simpler Times... - 08/14/16 12:39 AM

I was brainstorming with my marketing company the other day and I said I wanted to do a mailer with great eye-catching pictures and cute sayings that would get the attention of people in my farm area. We talked awhile, and the above mailer sprang to life. It became a softer message, one that would be a bit more soothing to look at, perhaps even elicit a chuckle or two from my audience. With as stressful as life has become these days, I felt that we needed to step back to a simpler time and place.
What has been developed … (2 comments)

towne lake: Pattern Interrupt! - 01/21/15 12:13 AM
I do come from a textile background, but today I am not referring to an actual design pattern. Nope, I am talking about an interruption in our own thoughts. Sometimes these can be distracting, like when we see a shiny object, or a squirrel, or something else that takes our mind off of what we need to be doing. These are the pattern interrupts that gets the most press.
I want to talk about the other side of this issue for a moment. My broker will on occasion, talk to her agents about things that makes her tear up. We have an agent … (4 comments)

towne lake: Let's just sell it "As Is" - 02/05/14 12:37 AM
Ok, so you have decided to sell your home. It has a bit of age on it. It really could use some paint and the carpets are original, but I hear shag carpets are coming back! The avocado green appliances are darling and what is there not to like about this linoleum flooring? If the buyer doesn't like something, we can just sell it as is and offer an allowance right?
Well, not really. There are several reasons this usually does not work out well for the seller. First of all, buyers today are looking for a move in ready home. … (6 comments)

towne lake: And there is a winner! - 12/17/13 09:54 PM
I woke up this morning and heard there was a big lottery winner in Atlanta! I figured it had to be me. So I rushed downstairs to get my tickets and, low and behold!, I will still need to find a way to fund my retirement. No dice. The big zero. The odds were completely against me winning, but I still wanted to gamble!
Do you feel this way when you look for a Realtor to help you buy or sell a home? Of course not. Gambling with a few bucks is one thing. Gambling with your home is quite another. … (5 comments)

Nope. We don't have sharks patrolling around our lakes here. These sharks are the collective 105 swimmers based out of The Arbors subdivision.

towne lake: I think I saw Bambi this morning! - 06/19/13 02:11 AM
I think I saw Bambi this morning. Ever since I moved my office to my home in the basement, I have seen much wildlife in the back yard. Every morning a large doe saunters through the back yard nibbling on anything green. She looks well fed. She will get within about 20 feet of my windows if I stay still. Two days ago I also saw a new fawn with all their spots just sitting about 5 feet off the main road.
Then there is the squirrel and the chipmunk. They come around every morning as well. I wondered if maybe … (3 comments)
