  After the sun came up this is what the day revealed. This is living in the North Georgia Mountains. You might think you need a lot of money ,but you would be wrong. Homes with views like this can be purchased for less than 250,000. Lots and land sometimes as low as 30,000 for big views. So we ...

Today after I dropped the kiddies off at school I happened across a cold wandering brindled puppy with a black button nose and socks. "Screech" went the brakes and out I jumped to save that puppy from certain doom! So he runs to me in a pitiful manner and lets me pick him up. At some point I foun...

Big Canoe, Georgia is a gated resort community located in the North Georgia Mountains. Each year Big Canoe celebrates the beginning of Autumn by hosting Oktoberfest with friends, festivities, fun, sausages and of course a genuine Oom-Pah Band! This Oktoberfest was a big hit with the largest crow...

A lot of folks when they think of gated communities have a very different impression than the photo above. While I do not have the "National Geographic" Wild life camera I was able to take this photo from my front porch. You could hear the clucking sounds and see the Turkeys walk through the are...

I am just now coming in from a great Octoberfest in Big Canoe. Plenty of good food. Plenty of good beer. And plenty of music and vendors. The best part is it was all free. So you could walk around and see your friends and neighbors for nothing. Many remarked that despite the economy folks seem to...

Living in the North Georgia Mountains has its advantages - clear skies, fresh mountain air, and a much more relaxed atmosphere. However some of the bigger communities can leave you feeling like a mouse in a maze if you don't know where you are going.  The Big Canoe Community has a smart system of...

The purpose of this post is not to discuss this local issue. Although if you ask me I am against it. This post is meant to remind Realtors of thei...

I'm starting to see some listings with the term "Price Firm". I agree that everyone should have a bottom line. Look at CarMax. I have not personally bought any vehicles from CarMax but after all the "No-Haggle Price" ads it truly discourages me from wanting to haggle. I guess the "agent" in me ma...

It would appear that Faye is finally leaving us. It was a major rain event. We needed some. Ouor lakes are full . The land is green. usually late rains like this make for great fall color. So if you are not going all the way to New England to see the leaves you might want to consider a trip a lit...

Many agents report activity picking up in the North Georgia Mountains. This is a good sign. I myself have a buyer and of the 3 homes we picked to see 2 went under contract. But aside from this type of information the AJC ( Atlanta Journal Constitution) did a big piece on Cousins properties. Cousi...

Last night we all gathered for a birthday party on Lake Petit. There were 2 birthday girls and one birthday boy. So we went out on a party boat to celebrate.

With much fanfare and not a little controversy the new club house is open. The reviews, despite the Pollyanna proclaimations of Smoke Signals, are mixed. I have eaten there once. I have found the food to be good. The staff to be friendly and trying hard. The value to be good. Having said that. I ...
