Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.



I ran across a story over on Jalopnik that is just too cool to NOT pass along.  They often have fun stories for and about 'car people', but this one I think carries WELL beyond just auto enthusiasts, and has relevence to everyone.  Bill Caswell is a guy that just seems to find ways to do things t...
I am a FireFox user.  I prefer it over Internet Explorer for a lot of reasons.  It has WAY more flexibility.  And one of our MLSs is even going to be supporting it soon.  I had installed one particular plug-in a long time ago, and was left wondering why.  In fact, when I set up the new computer, ...
Still working on the details, but there are changes coming.  The end goal is to create more of a hyper-local news site.  As we build towards that goal, we are inviting local businesses to post specials and information for Lilburn area residents.  The real estate content is going to be ratcheted d...
Here in Lilburn, GA, in the heart of Gwinnett County, we are on the path to getting our second Community Improvement District (CID).  But what does that mean? The basis of a CID is a geographically defined area, with businesses choosing to install a special tax on themselves in order to improve t...

I love to cruise around eBay.  There are SO many cool things to see.  eBay Motors might be the coolest place ever.  Between the military vehicles, race cars and RVs, I am in heaven.  And then there is the opportunity to dream in the Boat section or while looking at aircraft...  There is something...
Lilburn is already kind of home to part of the Evermore CID running along US78 between Stone Mountain and Snellville.  As an area resident, some of the improvements that are directly and indirectly a result of the CID are quite obvious. Image by mjp* via Flickr The updating of the bridge over th...
What do all of these things have in common?  Different real estate consumers have different needs.  For several years, I have concentrated on 'special' properties.  In the last few months I have helped buyers find a house that could hold four vehicles inside... with space for another garage that ...
I did a survey for Inman News about the brokerage of the future... they wanted to ask some follow-up questions, and it seemed like a great subject for a blog.  Since I needed to answer by tomorrow, I figured I might as well write it now... I know it has probably been awhile since you filled out o...
Social Media Breakfast - Atlanta has been plugging along since July, 2009.  We have met every month since then, except for December... in locations around Atlanta.  We have discussed topics ranging from Twitter to FaceBook Fan Pages, Posterous and Tumblr to Gist and gool ol' fashioned email.  And...
