After a long drawn out short sale battle in Georgia, Olivia Futrell was able to get the job done with her hard work and perseverance. I really thought for a second that it was being held up by the investors and they might not approve the sale. I would recommend her as a referral source that communicates throughout the transaction. Please send her a congrats on a job well done.

The Bradford Farm...As Seen Through The Eyes Of A Daughter In LawThis articles was written by Brande Bradford copyrighted @ May 23, 2007When my husband, Chris was in middle school, his father Mit bought the farm. It was about 40 acres with an old  house. The house was a four room farmhouse, built about 1900, with a fireplace in every room. A hallway running smack through the middle of the house. The bathroom, well, it was an outhouse sitting out back. It was located on a dirt back road in Henry County, Georgia. The house was a true farmhouse. The studs are not lumber as we know it today. They are skinned wood poles. The exterior of the house was covered with brick patterned tar-paper. But Mit and his family were proud of it.  For several years the house stayed rented, but the farm was t...
