Atlanta Buckhead Midtown: Client Wants the House But Needs An Elevator  When in Buckhead, Midtown and the Westside, one sees elevators in many places. Grand old elevators - such as in photo above - and grand new elevators.Home installation for elevators is a different subject. Years ago, adding an elevator was a full remodel job. Installation was very complicated and  so many inspections were required. In answer to the Client's request, today I learned about alternatives to the old traditional chairlift installed on the wall of a staircase. Lots of reasons not to want the chairlift sparked some very creative and innovative ideas.BEAM ME UP SCOTTIE!     Well, that's what I thought...Actually, it is a vacuum powered elevator with three different motor options.Then there is STILTZ for a mo...

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown: Survey And Save Yourself A Series of Issues Whether in Atlanta, Buckhead, Midtown or on the Westside, get a Survey and save yourself from a series of issues! I've written about this before. Others have written about this before on ActiveRain - my favorite being the one about the Railroad!I answer questions on Quora. Here's one I was requested to answer today:Often I get Upvotes but this was the first time the OP actually wrote a full answer back to me! Have to admit, I enjoyed reading her words, especially knowing she had an additional 22 other replies!So many times, people rely on a "landmark". Perhaps where the line of bushes is between the properties. Maybe the bushes weren't actually planted on the exact line! Those hypotheses about where the property bound...

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown - Architectural Mix From Post-1880 To Post-2020   Mid-century recessed Telephone wall shelfIn Atlanta Buckhead Midtown and the Westside, homes of vastly different ages sit side-by-side.  That means the material used for construction will be significantly different. How one personalizes a home will be influenced by the type of materials used in construction. Let's start with hanging art. In the 19th century home, the walls were made of lath, covered with more than one coat of plaster. To start the process, wooden lath pieces were nailed to the structural members of the home.The initial coat, known as the Scratch Coat, is applied with a trowel to the lath and pushed through the spaces until it fills the gaps between them. The material is made of coarse aggregate a...

December Challenge - Miracles And Gratitude in Atlanta GASo there you are - having worked decades in Real Estate and your youngest of the five adult children calls and asks to meet because she wants to discuss her work. Meet Brenda - photo above!First, after fainting with joy that she still values your opinion, you say, "Sure!" During the talk she explains that she wants to leave her job with Marriott Hotels in Corporate Finance after seven years. My response? JUST LEAVE!!!With sincerity, I suggested she go for whatever change she wanted. Even two new starts if the first one didn't work out. In 2021, what under 30 year old even has stayed in one job for that long? Life is short and uncertain. SEEK JOY!!!!Second, another fainting spell coming, she tells me that she wants to go into Real ...

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown - Land Acquisitions Larry Story Presentation  Larry Story from North Carolina led Zoom attendees on an adventure during his presentation this week. Travel commenced in farm land continued to timber land and to his discovery of the stream a Client wanted to hear at night and tracts of land for sub-divisions. He explained many situations. If there are crops on land - what obligation does the Buyer have to the farmer? How should one work towards Zoning changes so Buyer can pursue goals? What about sanitation - public or septic? How does one assure the Buyer of water service? Start with the need to really know one's Listing. Larry explained that he spent many, many hours researching each tract to be sure what constraints would be applied to the use of the land. For ...

Atlanta Buckhead MidtownFlowers - Foundation For Work Relationships  In Atlanta, Buckhead, Midtown and on the Westside, flowers form foundations for work relationships.Whenever I go to meet a new Buyer Client, I bring a minimal flower arrangement in a container that was destined for the Recycle bin. That gift addresses two core values of mine. First, I cherish every opportunity to share beauty. A close look at almost any flower is a glimpse into beauty and majesty in the natural world. Second, I am concerned about how much is added to land fills every year. By re-using a disposable container, I am not adding anything extra. Interestingly, when working with a Buyer Client who will soon have to move, by using recylable containers, I avoid adding another possession to their moving work loa...

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown - Isolated Living - Boarders Defeat Loneliness In Atlanta, Buckhead, Midtown and the Westside, Covid-19 created months of isolation for many people who were accustomed to being around others all the time. In fact, I was no exception. Being alone was a new experience for me after over fifty years of marriage and raising five children, all successfully living their lives with three of them and all the grandchildren far away in other states. Turns out it was very lonely in the house.So I decided to take in Boarders and that has made all the difference. In fact, life is a story or actually composed of many stories, isn't it Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP ?Years ago I had raised birds - cockatiels. I searched for social media posts from people who wanted to give ...

In the age of the smart phone, we have a camera in our hand almost all the time.It's not like back in "the old days" when you had to put the film in the camera, take the pictures, then take the film to be developed and wait a week. Then open the envelope and find out half of them were __________________ (fill in the blank as to what was wrong with them, right?)I've got a really nice Nikon DSLR camera that I have honestly forgotten how to use. I don't take my own real estate photos for listings, and it's bulky to lug the case around, or have that "huge thing" hanging around your neck when you can have your phone in your pocket.  Side note, in doing videos for my You Tube channel, I'm going to break it out, or the actual video camera so I can have footage from two angles to edit together ...

Atlanta Buckhead - Tree Blocking Road - Local Landscaper Offers Safety Atlanta Buckhead Midtown area frequently offers neighbors obstacle avoidance adventures while driving with major trees fallen into streets. Not visible in the night time, the huge trees on the roads are accidents waiting to happen! May 6, 2021 was no exception. After two days of torrential rains, many trees were loose in the ground. This one actually split open and fell across the road. Landing near an intersection, this tree would have been  particularly dangerous if a driver turned into the side street after dark.   Luckily for the homes near the tree, it split towards the road. No damaged roofs this time.   Danny Blankenship, 404-731-6995, owns Automatic Lawn Care, a family-based concern. He and his brother, Chris...

Atlanta Buckhead MidtownCDC Eviction Mandate NOT LEGAL Judge Says  In Atlanta, Buckhead, Midtown and the Westside, as well as all over the United States, a federal judge in Washington, D.C.  "vacated", that is, struck down, the CDC mandated nationwide Eviction Moratorium on Wednesday, May 5, 2021.U.S. District Court Judge Dabney L. Friedrich, of the District of Columbia, announced the decision in a 20-page document saying,“It is the role of the political branches, and not the courts, to assess the merits of policy measures designed to combat the spread of disease, even during a global pandemic. The question for the Court is a narrow one:"Does the Public Health Service Act grant the CDC the legal authority to impose a nationwide eviction moratorium? It does not.” Therefore, the capacity ...
