Shirestone TM counters have the look and feel of natural stone while offering a surface that is twice as hard as concrete.  The tops are hand crafted making them one of a kind while assuring a perfect fit.  The Shirestone TM is created with a casting material that is durable. The countertops flow beautifully as they are typically seamless upon completion.  Virtually carefree, the maintenance is extremely due to a high strength final coating that seals the tops. This coating gives the tops a greater stain resistance.  For more information on Shirestone TM or for installation in Brunswick and the Golden Isles of Georgia, speak with Alan Dixon at 912-269-0714.

With the holidays right around the corner, I'm sure everyone is thinking towards their preparations.  I personally am chomping at the bit to get started on putting up the Christmas lights and decorations.  I recently added another person to assist me and I'm afraid we may be in league with each other to see just how far we can go with the holiday décor without crossing over to tacky.  If you have never visited St. Simons Island in Southeast GA I sincerely encourage you to do so.  Today's skies are crystal blue and clear and our temperature is right about 60+.  The forecast for Thanksgiving week is even warmer and certainly conducive to enjoying the outdoors.  So if you are looking at gray skies and huddled under heavy coats, pull up the weather for our 31522 zip code.  As I've written b...

Greetings from the Golden Isles!  I know that this economic update for this area is earlier than you expected but with so much negativism in the National Media over the past week I thought that I would look at what has happen year to date and over the past quarter in the Golden Isles  and report to you.  Although I am no economic guru nor do I have the ability to see into some magic crystal ball that allows me to make economic predictions.... Hey... some days I have trouble seeing beyond my nose.  But seriously I believe that information is the answer for those of you who are wondering what to do regarding your Real Estate needs during this time of economic uncertainty.  So below you'll find my modest attempt at providing you with real information about here in the Golden Isles.In begin...

Most people when they think about Saint Simons Island, Georgia they think of $1 million mansions on the beach and golf courses.  But, in reality there are many homes and condos on Saint Simons Island for less than $300,000.  The more affordable homes are not directly on the beach, but most are within a short bike ride of the beach.  In the condo complex where I currently live there are two condos priced below $260,000 and they are a 1 minute walk from the village area on the south end on Saint Simons Island.The homes that are available on Saint Simons Island for less than $300,000 are mostly located in the Glynn Haven neighborhood (most are less than $260,000).  They are a less than 5 minute drive from the beach or about 15 minutes by bike.  Either a condo or a home purchase on Saint Si...

Today is another hot day in Georgia!  I love summer and the heat; yea, I know, I'm crazy!  On a day like today, it's really fun to jump in an electric car and go throughout the island looking at homes.  I really feel like I'm on vacation all of the time! If you haven't been in one of our "buggies", please come by the office and take a ride!  If you're looking for property, we'll be happy to tour you around the island, but if you're just wanting a little fun, the buggies are available for hourly rentals.  Go see the tree spirits, or take a drive down the Avenue of the Oaks.  St. Simons is a lovely place for everyone.  Tour at night, and the spirits may even tell you there own stories!  Have fun!
