Historic Norcross Farmer's Market is the new hidden jewel just a few minutes from my house! Who knew? When you live in a major metro area like Atlanta, many of our "burbs" are actually small, rural type towns that have just gotten swallowed up by all the growth. Some, like Doraville, where my house is located, has nothing left of it's past....really sad. But then you find the hidden gems. I discovered Historic Norcross Farmer's Market after reading numerous blogs about Farmer's Markets around the country. Now, sad to say, never been a big attendee of them...but boy oh boy has that just changed. This is not a huge market by any means, but you know what they say, its' the quality, not the quanity that counts. AND...this one is on a Tuesday afternoon, 4-8pm, June through October. A strange...

If all I have is the address and since I'm not a RE agent, how could I find out who's listing a certain property whether it's for sale or lease?  Today, for instance, I received a call from a gentleman who's brother owns a property he's caring for.  He didn't have the listing agents information but was hoping our guys could get out there.  To give our guys all the information I could, I was hoping to find out who is listing this rental, but I couldn't think of anything but google'ing the address, but was unsuccessful.  Thanks!

The perfect setting to live, work, and play. Quality residential environment, steady business growth, and numerous leisure offerings have contributed to the success of Norcross.  Now the City has a place that combines all of those attributes - the spectacular Lillian Webb Park, which had it's debut during Norcross' 3rd of July celebration.  Built on the site of a former baseball field, the park features cascading fountains, walking trails, landscaping, seating, areas, and a dramatic gated entry.  Future plans call for condominiums and retail establishments along the park's perimeter. Norcross has made a tradition of providing opportunities for recreation and relaxation and has become famous for special events created or hosted by the City - from free summer concerts in Thrasher Park to ...

Sometimes you hear a message that just changes your perspective so much so that you need to share it with someone.  For those that are curious, I am a Christian, and the message of Jesus' Love is definitely worth hearing, but that's not what I am talking about here.  I did hear this message as a sermon, but it transcends a good Sunday message, so much so that I felt it was worth blogging about it in an area that Realtors and consumers both could read. First, some background on my week.  I'm working on a big announcement about being a RichLife Advisor.  Basically, by aligning myself with the RichLife organization, I'll holding myself to a standard that says that my prorities are: God Family YOUR FAMILY Business You'll notice that YOUR Family jumped up to number 3.  I've always practiced ...

                  Chuck Warbington        Executive DirectorGwinnett Village Improvement District    Norcross, GA (February 4, 2009) --- On the heels of the County's release of another year of double digit reduction in crime for the CID, the Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District (GVCID) has announced implementation of phase 3 of their Targeted Enforcement Zone (TEZ) program by providing dedicated private security for the Gwinnett Village area. In December 2008, GVCID contracted with Specialized Intelligence and Security (SIS) to provide dedicated private security for properties within the district.

Today was the day I had to pose for picture for the Atlanta Journal Constitution for the profile that will be in the Business section (I don't know the date yet). Instead of getting a boring picture behind a desk in the office I hardly ever visit, I thought it would be fun to get the picture in a cool garage.  I didn't have anything really appropriate, so I pulled up a listing that I knew about with a cool garage.  I called the agent with the listing, and we cleared it to go... I had been in the house a long time ago... and it has since been staged.  Coincidentally, I know the stager... I used to work with his daughter, and he used to visit my store frequently.  And he has some cool toys in the garages. I shot a few pictures before the photographer showed up, just so that I could use t...

By: Chuck Warbington, PE - Executive Director, Gwinnett Village CID As I reflect over the past week concerning our recent trip to Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina with the Gwinnett Chamber, I cannot help but get excited about the potential and opportunity for Gwinnett as we begin a concerted effort to improve the southern part of the County. The focus of the end of the strategic trip centered around revitalization of old growth areas.  In some cases, old buildings were demolished and new mixed-use developments rose in their place while in other areas, we saw where large existing tobacco warehouses were structurally maintained and internally gutted for class A office space.  It was clear that this resurgence was not by accident.  Several deliberate actions were common in both Raleigh and D...

Last night, Thrasher Park was swinging to the big band tunes of Atlanta 17.  But you probably missed it...  ;^ ) But you don't have to miss the next free concert! That's right... free concert.  Every other Friday in Thrasher Park, just across the tracks from Historic Downtown Norcross, the city is hosting a free concert in the bandshell.  Last night there were young and old, those that remembered Glenn Miller's In the Mood when it was the newest song on the radio, and those that think Nirvana is old school rock and roll.  And everyone seemed to be having a great time while Atlanta 17 played.
