I hope everyone had an exciting time watching the eclipse today.
We had partial coverage in Atlanta. It got a little cloudy, but never got real dark. I thought the whole thing was a big bust until my 10-year-old pointed out the vision of the moon in front of the sun would only be visible while looking through the special solar eclipse viewers we managed to scavenge from the (Fernbank) science museum at the last minute.
Sure enough there it was right in front of the blindingly bright sun, but only viewable with the solar viewers.
This once-in-a-lifetime event turned out to be a real treat. The next eclipse to hit Georgia won't roll around until 2078. I imagine I — and most of the rest of us — will be long gone by then. We were treated to the wonder and magic of science today and I hope you joined in the excitement.
In other exciting news, two of my recent listings are making headlines. The dust is finally settling on the closing of 1968 Enon Road in Southwest Atlanta (New City of South Fulton) which sold for a record price (the highest sales price in South Fulton's 30311, 30331 and 30349 zip codes in the past two years).
My listing at 4311 Shamrock Drive in Atlanta is under contract after just 3 days on the market. This is a master-on-the-main with a level lot and real hardwood floors. This home is expected to close next month, if all goes well (and we expect nothing less). Right now, it's on to due diligence.
If you know of someone interested in selling their property or someone interested in buying a new home, ask them to call me and join in the excitement!
