Tour 7 Stunning Properties this Saturday & Sunday!

Whether you love architecture, homes and Atlanta’s history, you’re simply looking for something fun to do this weekend or you’re just a nosey neighbor wanting to scope out the homes on your block (we’re not judging, we promise), check out the East Lake Tour of Homes this Saturday and Sunday!

For a mere $15 in advance (or $20 at the door), you will get to walk 7 absolutely stunning homes that represent the East Lake community’s rich history and growth over the years. In this year’s tour, you’ll get to walk homes built over 100 years ago (including the second oldest home in Atlanta!) as well as refurbished bungalows that incorporate original characteristics with modern updates.

What’s even better? Proceeds benefit the East Lake Neighbors Community Association (ELNCA), which is dedicated to creating positive growth and building community. Take part in a continuing tradition that began in 1979 and see some amazing historic Atlanta homes while taking in the beauty next to the East Lake Golf course.

Our brokerage, Keller Knapp is a proud sponsor, and we would love to see you out there! To see the homes on tour and buy your tickets, simply click here!

SOLD! Congrats, Jake!

Seller & Buyer – Sold in Roswell, Martin’s Landing & Purchased on Lake Lanier

Home Jake sold in Martin’s Landing; 9370 Martin Road

BIG congrats to Jake! He not only sold his first home, he purchased a new home on Lake Lanier! We’re super excited for him on his new adventure!

When Jake came across a property on Lake Lanier that came with a dock permit, he was determined to do whatever it took to get the property. It’s nearly impossible to get a new permit for a dock on Lake Lanier.

In September 2016, The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers stopped issuing new dock permits on the lake, having reached its limit at 10,615 with over 100 applicants on the waiting list, so when you get the opportunity to purchase a home with one, you go for it!

Not only did Jake have to make it through inspections on his new lake property to be sure the investment was worth it, we also had to sell his current home for the right price ensuring he achieved the necessary profit for his new investment.

Oh, did we mention the property Jake set out to purchase was actually two lots being sold together with a house desperately needing some TLC? Yep, that’s a doozy! It took a little creativity to create a contract protecting Jake through the inspections, ensure the dock permit successfully transferred with the sale and figure out the right loan.

We connected Jake with a lender and closing attorney who were up for the challenge, and we were able to get his current home under contract in 2 weeks, coordinating the sale so Jake had the funds prior to closing on his new properties.

Extremely determined and with the right team in place, Jake was able to snag the property for an unbelievable price! Although we’re sure it was a bit stressful on Jake at times, we truly believe it was well worth it, and we’re sure glad he made it through!

He has some big renovation plans, and we can’t wait to see how it all turns out. We truly believe he has the potential to make a great home and generate a nice profit in the future.

Jake, thank you so much for the opportunity to help you with your sale and purchase! It means the world to us that you entrusted in us to guide and protect you through. We truly enjoyed sharing this experience with you and we hope you enjoy your new project! We also can’t wait to hang with you on your new dock! 😉

Buyer – Sandy Springs

We’re so excited to congratulate Brenna on her new home purchase! Brenna is an amazing person whose positivity is absolutely contagious and she has such a kind heart! We feel truly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her.

We beat out multiple offers to get this one! Brenna offered over list price and dropped her appraisal contingency completely to make her offer more competitive. She trusted our guidance, knowing we knew the property’s market value and she got the condo!

It’s no joke that it’s a competitive market to be a Buyer, however, it’s still a great time to buy, as rental rates are extremely high and interest rates are still low. Don’t worry; we’ve got the processes in place to help our clients win multiple offer situations while still ensuring they are protected and making smart financial investments.

We greatly appreciate Brenna following our expertise. She now owns an adorable condo in sought after Sandy Springs where she can walk to Whole Foods, which we’re pretty jealous about! She’s also conveniently located close to delicious restaurants, cute boutiques and GA 400.

Brenna, thank you so much for the opportunity to help you with your first home purchase and for entrusting in us to guide through this crazy market. We’re over the moon happy for you and we wish you many, many happy years in your new home! We can’t wait to see how you make the condo your home! Cheers!

Congrats, Mike! It has been such a joy to help you with your purchase. We’re so extremely grateful we were given the opportunity to meet you and your children. Wow, are you all such incredible people and you have such a kind heart!

We’re beyond excited to congratulate Mike on his recent purchase in downtown Roswell. He purchased a lot where he plans to build a home to enjoy with his kiddos. See all those trees in the picture above? Well, very soon that will become Mike’s future home!

Lots are very difficult to come by in the downtown Roswell area, and his is located on a private hillside with Chattahoochee River views! It’s also only minutes to Canton Street with convenient access to the river.

We can’t wait to see the final build! Mike, thank you so much for the opportunity to work with you on your purchase. It has been such a pleasure sharing this experience with you, and we are truly grateful for trust in us. We hope your new home is filled with amazing memories for years to come! Congrats!

Over the moon excited to congratulate Emily and Sebastian on their new home! You’re officially homeowners! Emily and Sebastian purchased an adorable 1920’s home filled with amazing character! It’s almost 100 years old, which is pretty unbelievable. Isn’t there just something so special about a home rich in history? It sure does make my heart swoon!

Although there were a few hurdles along the way, Emily and Sebastian stuck in there like champs, and we were able to negotiate the Seller down $15,000 under appraised value, making the hurdles well worth it.

Featuring gleaming dark hardwoods, new stainless appliances, granite counters, glass subway tile backsplash, high ceilings and a fireplace in the master, their home is absolutely stunning! Plus, it’s soaked in natural light and has a private fenced in backyard perfect for their pup, Tela!

Emily and Sebastian, we truly enjoyed working with you! It was such a joy to help you find your perfect first home and we loved sharing this experience with you. We can’t wait to see how you make it your own!

Kyle and Kelsey have plans for a major master bath renovation and we’re so exited to see how it turns out. We plan to share their progress with you, so stay tuned on that one!

We want to give a big thanks to Kelsey and Kyle for entrusting in us to help them with their home purchase. It was such a joy to work with them and we’re thrilled to have gained new friends along the way! Next up, your wedding! Cheers to you both and your new home!
