On Monday, my real estate office had an event called Callapalooza.  We had free food and sponsors put up prizes including a 42" TV.  The event was a great success in my mind and there was a buzz in the air.  We took some market share by doing this.  Let's not get too hung up on the fact that one commission check usually can buy two 42" TVs.  AHA's! An AHA! is where you are doing something or seeing something and you think "AHA! I've got it."  The "AHA" that the agenst got is that the PHONE WORKS (as long as you operate it properly). Several agents found out on Monday after being nearly forced to make phone calls that when you dial the numbers on the phone sometims someone will answer.  You can then talk to them about Real Estate and sometimes get business!!! Out of 20 people we had 98 a...

Well, last year we were experiencing a drought and the lakes were down over 20 feet.  Yes, weather patterns and real estate markets go in cycles.  Today, we are having one of the most severe rains and flooding we have seen in decades.  Check out this picture of the 11th green on the TPC at Sugarloaf golf course.  It may be a little hard to see... but that is the flag still standing as the entire green is underwater.  An yes, there were a few golfers chipping balls trying to see who could get closest to the flag!   This is the "bird's eye view" of the 11th hole before it was flooded. The good news is that this is the type of thing that makes you happy to be part of the TPC network.  Our club is always excellent at repairing the course and getting it back into top condition.  Other course...

It has been said that in the Atlanta real estate market, September and October are great times to take a good cruise or a vacation.  I must say that I agree!  The phones do not ring too much once the kiddies are back in school.  This year in Atlanta seems no different.  The summer was kind of a disappointment.  We started out with a bang for May and June and then July fizzled as the interest rates went higher.  In August "Cash for clunkers" seemed to pull whatever excess cash was in the market...and took it in another direction.  Personally I was hoping that once children were back in school the market here would have picked up.  It didn't.  It is very quiet except for phone calls looking for $5000 homes that buyers will tell you they do not have the money.  All and all, we cannot compl...

A few weeks ago I took some photos and a visual tour panorama of the new Duluth GA City Center.  I purposely took these photos and tour of Duluth GA to add to my Duluth GA homes for sale web page. They have just about finished the downtown Duluth City Hall project, and it's stunning.  It is hard to beleive all the work that's been accomplished in the last few years.  We have a new city hall, a sfestical center, a park and so much more. The Historic City of Duluth GA has been reborn with this magnificent project.  There is a new City Hall, shops, and a lovely promenade for walking and strolling in downtown Duluth GA.  Enjoy the tour of Duluth GA!

Remembering September 11, 2001 The city of Duluth GA is a leader is strong country pride.  Anyone local to the Duluth area can attest to that.  Each memorial Day the names of fallen Duluth GA citizens that served our country and gave their final offering with their lives are remembered on flags, crosses and posts on all the main roads of the city of Duluth GA.  This year is no difference in marking the anniversary of September 11, 2001. It is an extremely patriotic gesture.  This year for September 11th it is no different. The Duluth clock tower bells will toll at the time each plane crashed on that terrible day in 2001 (8:46 am, 9:03 am, 9:45 am and 10:10 am). The City of Duluth Georgia's Mayor Pro Tem, Jim Dugan, along with a police officer and fireman, will place a wreath at the top ...

  Lights! Camera! Satisfaction!   For untold numbers of people, video has become a daily habit, and many of these previously unknown people have quickly become household names--often overnight.  Valentina Trevino is just such an example: She's a Chicago artist who routinely employs the technological benefit of You Tube to show millions of people around the world exactly how she creates her paintings, and to tell them the stories behind her paintings. To date, Valentina's videos have been viewed over 8 million times; but more importantly her videos have attracted hundreds upon hundreds of buyers! At the end of each video, a link to her EBay store is displayed so that viewers can purchase her paintings. And it's catching on in other markets too.   Now, real estate professionals are begin...

Duluth GA was a great place to cool yourself off on a beautiful summer day today.  Ellen and I went out for a ride after lunch and wanted to take some photos around town.  Our first stop was the New City Hall in Duluth GA where the entire landscape of historic Duluth meets a new city center complete with a new city hall, a plaza, down town shopping, an festival center, and a great looking city center park complete with a water fountain that local children had a great time staying cool as moms and dads were nearby watching!  It was a perfect day for fun for all!  The weather in Duluth GA was perfect!

Aching Back? See Chiropractor Dr. Carol Antonino in Duluth, GA. Dr. Antonino is a Chiropractor and good friend. The first time I discovered what she could do was quite by accident. We were on our way to a concert at Chastain Park and I had a pinched nerve in my neck. I was so uncomfortable. The good doctor told me to lie down on the grass and just trust her. I was thinking oh my, she's going to break my neck.  But, I trusted her. She adjusted me right then and there and like magic, it was instant relief!   From that day forward, I've been a big believer in getting Chiropractic adjustments from a trusted professional. Dr. Carol Antonino is caring and very skilled. I try to go regularly, just to get back on track. If you're wearing shoes that aren't good for your back, she'll tell you. Fl...

Congratulations to Sugarloaf Country Club resident Stewart Cink for winning the 138th British Open.  It was one of the most exciting finishes in Open history as Cink won a 4-hole playoff against veteran Tom Watson.  Watson has won 5 British Open titles previously and is one of the most successful golfers in history.  At age 59, Watson mounted an incredble run but came up one stroke short of voctory with a bogey on the 18th hole.  Stewart made a rare birdie on the 18th in regulation to post a 2 under par score.  In the playoff, Stewart was 2 under par while Watson blew to a triple of the 17th hole which was the 3rd playoff hole.   Stewart was obviously excited but a humble and classy winner as he acknowledged the venerable Watson in his comments after the round.  Watson was quite the gen...

The Duluth Ice Forum is a great break from the heat and humidity here in the Atlanta area.  Just think... the temperature outside is hoving in the 90s... or hotter.  In order for it to be muggy, the humidity would have to drop 10%.  What better way to get your cool on than to go ice Skating... That is just what we have been doing for the last couple of years.  On as many Friday mornings as we can manage, we pack up the gear and take our Cross-Ice player up to the Duluth Ice Forum to get a little ice time.  There is a public session from 10am-12noon several days per week.  He started as just another little kid that couldn't skate...  But then he started Snow Plow Sam skating lessons.  They were excellent.  He was having fun and enjoying the new adventure of learning to skate.  But... he ...
