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!

BIG congrats to the soon-to-be Correll’s! You’re seriously adulting now, ha! We couldn’t be more excited for you! Kyle and Kelsey purchased an incredible home in the sought after Briarcliff Woods neighborhood.

We love their updated ranch featuring a light and bright kitchen with all new appliances and white subway tile backsplash, hardwood floors throughout, and a fireside family room with built-in bookcases and private back deck.

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!

Congrats, Lucas!

His new home features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a private fenced in backyard. It also has a newer siding, HVAC and windows, so it’s in excellent shape! We can’t wait to see how Lucas adds his own touches!

Congrats, Kristina and Trevor on your very first home! You’re officially homeowners! That’s a serious adult move right there, and we’re super excited for you on your new adventure!

Featuring authentic concrete floors, massive floor to ceiling windows and exposed ductwork, their loft’s chic industrial vibe is incredibly cool. It’s also walking distance to all the booming development in historic downtown Chamblee!

We can’t deny we’re a little jealous they’ll be able to walk right out their front door to places like Blue Top (Chamblee’s new restaurant and bar equipped with a bocce ball court!), Southbound, Dutchmans and the Frosty Caboose, to name a few.

We absolutely love their condo’s industrial aesthetic and we can’t wait to see how they transform their condo into their home! We know they already have big plans in the works!

Kristina and Trevor, thank you so much for the opportunity to help you with your home purchase. It was such a joy to work with you! We’re thrilled for you on your new home and we wish you both many happy years there! Cheers!

Tax Assessments – Appeal or Not?

Email Blast June 2017 Image 1

If you’re reading this article, you were likely hit hard by the recently released property tax assessments. Don’t worry, you’re not alone; many residents are feeling the pinch.

With the rise in property values and to catch up with their valuations, many homeowners are seeing an increase in property taxes. Some are even seeing very dramatic increases, especially if they haven’t seen an increase in several years.

So what can you do about it? You might be able to appeal! Keep your money in your pocket, not in Uncle Sam’s! Here’s what to do:

Review the assessment carefully. If you feel it’s inaccurate, click the link for your county below for information on the appeal process.

If you do not agree with your home’s fair market value shown, you have 45 days (in both counties) from the date shown on the notice to appeal.

Reason for appeal:

*A mistake – they made a mistake; incorrect data on your property

*Comparable homes in your neighborhood received lower assessments

*Your home’s market value is incorrect

If anything above applies to you, click the link for your respective county below for more information on the appeal process:

Cobb County: http://www.cobbassessor.org/cobbga_dnn/Forms/Appeal-Form

DeKalb County: https://www.dekalbcountyga.gov/property-appraisal/appeal-process

Fulton County: http://www.fultoncountyga.gov/latest-news/8467-fulton-county-2017-assessment-notices-issued-

Just a reminder, the millage rates have not been set yet so these are not your final bills, just an assessment.

SOLD! Congrats, Ryan & Kimberly!

Buyers – Brookhaven

4352 Ashwoody Trail NE Closing Image

BIG, BIG congrats to Ryan and Kimberly, who closed on their new home in Brookhaven last month! From getting married to purchasing their new home, Ryan and Kimberly have had a very exciting few months, and we’re so excited for them on their new adventure!

I know, I know, again with the competitive market talk, but it really is tough to be a buyer in a market that is majorly lacking inventory, even when you know that owning is the right financial investment for you.

Due to the lacking inventory, Ryan and Kimberly were having a very challenging time finding a home that fit their needs. However, with a little creativity and their willingness to take quick action, we were able to help them find an amazing home that wasn’t even on the market!

Not only is their new home located in an extremely desirable neighborhood walking distance to Murphy Candler Park, it’s absolutely gorgeous! Equipped with a gourmet kitchen, a large private backyard and a full finished basement, we’re sure they’ll enjoy many nights entertaining friends and family!

Ryan and Kimberly, thank you so much for providing us with the opportunity to help you with your home purchase! It was such a joy to work with you. We hope you enjoy your new home for many years to come! Congrats!
