My broker, Van, pushes me to think – makes my brain hurt sometimes! He asked me a thought-provoking question last week, “Pam, looking over your first full year in real estate – what would you say is your ‘take away’?” I’ve learned so much …. but I was thinking of the details, not the Big Picture. What was the Big Take Away? What did I discover about the business and how I relate to it?

Steve Forbes said, “You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.” What does that have to do with real estate? Lots!

When I took my first real estate course, I remember the instructor telling the class, “This class is to teach you how to pass

After months of looking at homes in the Alpharetta and Johns Creek areas, our clients looked at a Fannie Mae foreclosure in Kimball Bridge Crossing off of Kimball Bridge Road in Alpharetta, and fell in love with the floor plan.  The problem was that it needed a lot of work.   

This Fannie Mae property had been under contract previously, but was terminated due to the buyer becoming aware of the amount of worked required after going under contract.  Once it returned to the market there were multiple offers received, and my client elected to make an offer above list price and was awarded a contract on the property.  

As we entered the Due Diligence period it became extremely important to estimate the cost of the improvements and the affect the

Delightful Clients Close on a Perfect Home

Things just have a way of working out.  That was the case with these clients.  Originally desiring to stay around the Windward area in order to keep the kids in the same school, but nothing seemed to work.  So the search was expanded a little to take in areas slightly south and west of Windward. 

Our search quickly gravitated to new construction.  Unfortunately, this occurred at a time when resale inventory was diminished, and although building permits were up, there still was not a lot to choose from.  Builders knew this and were not willing to adjust their prices to where my clients wanted to be.  

During the early stages of our search we had looked at a home west of 400, in the 30004 area of

Beautiful Renovated Contemporary
In Rivermont Country Club

This beautifully renovated home in Rivermont Country Club was recently purchased by one of our clients.  She was referred to us by co-workers at the company she works with.  At the time she had a house on Lake Lanier that she wanted to sell in order to down size and get closer to work.  She was traveling an hour and a half each way in busy traffic.

The home on Lake Lanier sold in a predictable fashion once the correct value was determined.  A previous broker had it over priced by more than $70,000, and no one even looked at it during the time it was on the market.  Within weeks of our firm relisting it at the correct price we had identified a buyer and went under contract at what we had

From St. Louis to Hamilton Mill in 40 Days

This recent closing came from a long line of former clients that we had assisted in finding their dream homes here in the Atlanta area. This client like several of the others was being relocated to the area with his current employer.

The couple had always lived in St Louis and this was the wife’s first trip to the area. So it was important to not only look for a home, but to do so in a way that would help them better understand the various communities in their geographic search area. We realized that it must be very scary to move the family to a place that you have never been before.

I bet they thought it happened so quickly. They arrived on a Thursday. We met early that morning to discuss their wish

Another Great Value for Our Client

This recent closing was for a retired doctor client of ours.  He and his wife were relocating to Alpharetta from Florida to be near family and grandchildren.  The process started several years ago and was put on hold due to the declining real estate values where they lived.
