I was showing a foreclosure over the weekend to a first time buyer and they loved the home!! Wanted to buy it right then and there!  What a sweet deal! No endless driving around and showing a ba-zillian other places so that they would be sure! They were sure and wanted to write the check! But wai...
I actually like winter time here in the North Georgia Mountains! All the folige is down, except those American Beeches that hang on for another month, so you can see for miles! Or you can see right next door....depending on where you're standing! Most people come to the mountains to get away from...
My Open House in Big Canoe is getting closer!  I experienced a set back when the local newspaper did not post my ad in the MONTHLY newspaper! I have had to go to Plan "B" because of that!  I have posted an ad in the weekly paper which is not as market specific as the one that was missed, but it i...
I am holding an Open House next week and would be thrilled if members of Activerain would attend. I have two planned.

Has anyone used this service by Postlets?  Has it created any business or is it just more money that I can throw away? It is a mini-website dedicated to a single property listing. Other than placing the web address on a street sign, is there any other way that this feature might be helpful? We ar...
I just returned to the North Georgia Mountains from south of Atlanta and what a relief! First of all it is 10 degrees cooler here, some due to the ambient temperature (higher elevation, lower temp) and some from the incredible fauna coverage! Thick masses of trees displaying every imaginable shad...
I have some great listings here in Big Canoe, gorgeous golf course homes with all the bells and whistles, but: How Do I Get the Word Out? I have tried e-flyers, emailings, print ads, caravan exposure, begging,pleading!!! And virtually no showings! The homes are priced right, or I'ld like to think...
Spring time is pushing it's way up here in the mountains.  One day there are snow flurries the next it is 78 degrees! The wild azaleas are beginning to bloom, wild cherry and forsythia are well on their way and dogwoods are ready to pop! You would think that all this change would give us enough t...
