Any semblance to a Buick-driving, no-shirt-wearing, Southern movie star in my latest real estate listing video is purely a coincidence.
This is a great house listed for just $225,900.
More on 22 Spoon Court:
A charming patio home with a number of recent updates, including a new roof (May, 2015), gutters (April), upstairs carpet and tile in the upstairs bathroom… an end unit and arguably the best lot in the neighborhood… private courtyard… part of River Ridge, a premier residential swim and tennis community… Master on the main… open, naturally-lit living and dining area… two upstairs bedrooms including one with a walk-in closet and additional storage… climate-controlled storage off second upstairs bedroom.
There were many reasons I elected to work under the Coldwell Banker umbrella. The training a sales associate receives is unmatched. The tools available to market homes are outstanding. And the people — my colleagues, my broker, etc. — are fantastic.
I didn’t choose Coldwell Banker because of its television advertising campaigns — that would be as smart as grossly over-pricing a split-level with foundation cracks located next to an airport runway. Still, I’m proud to be associated with a company that produces high-quality advertising and hits customers squarely in the heart.
The latest CB campaign is themed “Catch” (above) and it’s going to be perfect for ESPN’s Baseball Tonight this spring.
The “Catch” theme is almost as good as the “Home’s Best Friend” which ran earlier this year and really tugged at the heart strings. Enjoy
There are a number of reasons I chose to cast my real estate lot with Coldwell Banker. Too many to list in just one blog.
I could talk for days about my broker and Coldwell Banker colleagues, the on-going training we receive and the code of ethics we all follow.
Then there is the Coldwell Banker brand. In terms of national brand recognition, Coldwell Baker ranks right up there with the big boys. It’s mentioned in the same brand-recognition breath as companies such as Nike.
Other brokerages may have commercials that air on national television. Quite honestly, I’m not sure, but I know that Coldwell Banker are the only national real estate commercials I remember seeing.
The latest Coldwell Banker ad is a gem. It also fits my philosophy when it comes to TV commercials: If you want a successful ad campaign, use dogs or babies or both.
CB’s commercial may not me the tear-jerker that Budweiser recently produced, but it makes me happy as a pet-lover. It also makes me proud to be affiliated with Coldwell Banker.
Here’s a website you may just want to bookmark.
If you think that one day, whether it’s in the immediate or distant future, that you may want to purchase a home in Metro Atlanta, this is a good website to begin your search. If you know someone who is considering a move to the Atlanta area, this is an ideal site for them.
This home-search site could not be more simple to use, and more importantly: it’s accurate and up to date.
Full disclosure: I’m biased when it comes to this home-search tool.
My company, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, has provided all its agents with this tremendous tool. Much of the same information you can find on well-known home-search websites can be found here.
Go ahead, play around on the site and let me know what you think.

A plush, 24-hour gaming resort featuring up to 425 machines that pay out non-cash prizes may be coming soon to an underdeveloped area of South DeKalb.
The Atlanta Braves aren’t the only folks moving to Smyrna.
Construction is well underway at Belmont — near Atlanta Road and Windy Hill Road — and this area in changing daily.
I’ll write more about what type of homes, cottages and townhomes that are being constructed in a future blog, but this location is going to be great for almost any home-buyer. This community is being built literally steps away from the Smyrna Elementary School campus and it’s only a football field or so away from Campbell Middle School. And from the intersection of Atlanta Road and Windy Hill Road — you are a short drive away from I-285 and I-75. It’s 12 miles from here to the heart of Midtown.
The homes are being built by David Weekley Homes and this is what is says on the builder’s website:
“Located in Smyrna, GA, David Weekley Homes will soon begin building new homes in Village of Belmont! Choose from several unique floor plans with stunning architectural elements and incredible interiors in this charming community. Here, you’ll also enjoy:
- Private, gated community
- Students attend Cobb County schools, with new, onsite Smyrna Elementary School
- Swimming pool, cabana and central park
- Walking distance to great shopping and dining
- Nearby Market Village, Tolleson Park and Smyrna Community Center”

Do any of the following describe you or someone you know?
- You’d like to purchase a home, but you don’t have enough cash for a down payment.
- You’re new to the Atlanta area and you’d like to kick the tires on a neighborhood you have your eyes on before you actually buy a home.
- You’re last house foreclosed or short-sold.
- You want to rent a nice single-family home, but are discouraged because so few houses are available for lease.
There’s a new program to Georgia that many Coldwell Banker customers are using to get into their dream home without a down payment or even a mortgage. This program allows you to lease the house for as long as you would like, but with an option to purchase it at any time — whether it’s after just two months or two years or even longer.
There’s no obligation to ever purchase the home. After renting it for one year, you can just walk away, no strings attached.
Obviously, there are many more details, but there are no “catches.” We’ve had numerous customers enjoy successful transactions using this program.
Call me at 404.295.8703 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be glad to tell you all about it.
And you thought Monday night’s Ohio State-Oregon game had been broken down every way possible…
As a Realtor, I would be remiss not to compare which city — Columbus or Eugene — is champion when it comes to real estate.
Football may be a game of inches. But what about square feet and acres? Turns out the biggest difference between the Buckeyes and Ducks may be something other than the uniforms.
Using statistics compiled by Trulia, I put together the chart below:
In 2014, Ohio State may have enjoyed a remarkable football season under head coach Urban Meyer, but Columbus’ real estate numbers took a dip during football season. Perhaps Buckeye fans focus so strongly on football, they just don’t have time for real estate. Maybe the early-season loss to Virginia Tech caused a cloud of depression over the city.
Alas, Buckeye fans, one year produces a very small sample size of data and we’re just having some real estate agent fun here.
Meanwhile, real estate flourished in Eugene in 2014. The average sales price for Eugene homes went up 8.4 percent over the previous year.
The difference is median sales price between homes in Columbus and Eugene (in 2014) was $117,000 — which is about the same number of Oregon’s uniform combinations.
So, which team will capture the first ever National College Football Playoff Monday night? That may be even more difficult to predict than the real estate market.
