HELLO from Blue Ridge, Georgia!

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Mountain Investments of North Georgia

HELLO from Blue Ridge, Georgia!  I am Barbara Argo. I have a motto: "I don't want to stand at the setting sun and regret the things I've not done." And that is precisely why my husband and I moved to the North Georgia Mountains.  We wanted to pursue living in the beautiful and picturesque mountains, to breathe the cool, clean air, to enjoy the friendly people and to help other people realize their dreams of owning a home in this fantastic area.

My husband, Floyd, and I have traveled a good bit since 2000 - Paris, Hawaii, Montana, Florida, Alaska, Wyoming, Barbados, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Georgia, Tennessee - well you get the idea - and could have moved anywhere from our South Georgia home but the mountains of North Georgia have captured our hearts and interest. 

I became a real estate agent in 2004 and it's the best "office" I've ever had!  WOW! The scenery and the people are great!  I'm so happy to work with Donna Yates!  Talk about a professional!!!!!

I look forward to talking with you all in the near future.

Barbara

Welcome to AR Barbara! I just joined in November 2007 and I am hooked. I have forged some wonderful personal and business relationships in that time. I am sure you will love being "in the Rain." I live in Roswell (a suburb of Atlanta) and blog quite a bit about things to do in the metro area; if you get a chance, check out my blogs. I love the north Georgia mountains and look forward to reading your posts! One piece of advice, scan ove the groups listing, find ones that interst you, and join them; it was the best way for me to meet people!

HI Rich and Diana,

We are absolutely in love with North Georgia - especially today!  We have SNOW!

My dog, Sky, isn't so happy about the cold snow!

The snow and my "Sky"

Barbara - What an awesome picture. The snow is so beautiful but I'm glad we don't get it often! Sky looks like he is over the snow! <<<smile>>> Be safe with this weather!

Hi Rich,

Sky is saying, "I want in! I want in!" 

He's not an inside dog but he does have a pillow in my husbands heated shop for just such occasions.

He shares the pillow with the cat.The cold makes strange bedfellows
