New Old Fourth Ward Townhome Project Underway

Sort of.

Mid Century Madness Near Emory

I have a few compelling reasons why my listing at 1490 Lively Ridge Road is going to knock your socks off.  And it’s not just me, the admittedly biased Realtor.  Even HGTV decided that they had to write a full profile on this mid-century beauty. Show More Summary

Why Should I Live In Candler Park?

To live in Candler Park is to love Candler Park.  It’s just one of those neighborhoods where no one ever wants to leave, and where everyone wants in.  Must be the biscuits. It’s hard boiling down the reasons to live in a neighborhood...Show More Summary

Perfect Intown Townhouse: It Smells Like Pie

My new townhome listing at Carlyle Park in Edgewood feels more like a house than it does an attached townhouse.  Tons and tons of living space, lots of natural light and luxe-finishes throughout- it checks all the boxes that you know of, and several that you haven’t even considered.

This is curb appeal: It’s a picture of my new listing at 1971 Braeburn Circle in East Atlanta.  It was built by Stoney River Homes in 2007, although it looks and feels like it was finished yesterday.
