If you live in Gwinnett County then I don't have to tell you about the award winning Gwinnett Parks and Recreation Dept. named the #1 park system in the nation in 2008 by National Recreation and Park Association. But if you're considering moving to the Gwinnett area then you'll want to know about...
There's a new sport that's catching on all over the country...... It's called "Fence Riding". It's kind of like what you see the kids on the skateboards doing with the rail on the steps only there's a fence and a potential buyer involved. The fences vary in style, shape and height but the buyer's...
I took a difficult listing today. Not because it was in rough shape, or because the seller wants to overprice it or because it's in a bad neighborhood but because it was once owned by a very close friend that was killed in a motorcycle accident. You talk about difficult try finding a middle betwe...
Okay get your mind out of the gutter. Not that kind of stimulation, but one of a political nature. When it comes to politics, I will admit I don't know as much as the next guy.

  Gwinnett Realtor Vents About Rude Agents-If you don’t like your job then do something else! I got up early Saturday morning because a buyer I’m working with wanted to see some listings I had sent her the night before and I needed to check availability. Normally I don’t like to call any agent be...
I love the internet! Where else could you advertise something for nothing and have it exposed to literally millions of people? There are hundreds if not thousands of sites you can use to sell anything, including real estate. About a year ago I started using Craigslist and about 10 other free sit...
      After listening to many media outlets talk about how bad the real estate market is, I thought it would be helpful to post some actual statistics for Gwinnett County Real Estate and other surrounding counties. Since real estate is very localized, what's happening in some parts of the countr...
  The definition of a short sale has nothing to do with the time it takes to sell your home in this market. Rather, a short sale is the agreement of your lender to negotiate a sales price for your home that is less than what you actually owe. It can be an alternative to foreclosure but is a very...
