…your zip code please..?

Why did the store clerk ask me for this?  More importantly, why was I embarrassed?  I don’t like providing stores with ANY of my information, however in 2006, I HATED to give out my zip code. Among the comments received, “Whoa isn’t that the top foreclosure location?”   Then I would get defensive and explain the mortgage fraud situation – that these homes were all empty and how our communities were robbed of values, neighbors leaving us blighted although it was no fault of our own.  (yes, the entire long story)

However, from the strictly informative side- forget the long story- when I looked up my zip code I was a bit shocked by what I read.  Believe me,I’m not  ignorant about my community but I do not think the numbers paint an accurate picture.  I think these numbers have actually slowed our economic development and revitalization efforts.  On the contrary, we do have resilient neighbors and I am proud to say, despite the Black/White numbers on paper- we are thriving in the Grays!

A tease…

I’m very excited about the work my client has done to her home, but a bit nervous about the ‘Copper’.. I am being teased by receiving only bits and pieces of the installed work , but from what I see- it’s a show stopper! I was getting a bit tired of hearing buyer say “I want an updated kitchen but NO granite!”  I now have a home for you 🙂

What do you think?

Copper Counter Tops?

Selling a home today is a challenge.  Selling a home with custom details is EVEN MORE a challenge.  Today people prefer to keep things simple and run with the crowd.  HGTV say’s ” Granite” is the way to go.  The crowd buys Granite and all MOST buyers look for it in a home or think how they can add it.

Picture how I felt when I received a text from a client in a fabulous home, but had a high quality laminate counter.

Client: “I’m changing my counter tops”

YES-YES-YES

Client: “I’m going with a copper. I’ve always wanted this”

NO-NO-NO

Copper Counter Tops? I must admit, I have never seen then. I have two pictures of copper in my mind. The picture of the old fashioned shiny posts and roster shaped baking pans hanging on a great grandmothers kitchen wall, and the second NOT so pleasing. The ugly pennies stuck to the bottom of the cup holder in my car. Either way- this does not feel good to me.

I did a bit of research trying to brace myself for the review of her home this week, and found THIS site to be helpful. I even like some of the finishes. But which did my client do?

Stay tuned….

Salt Water Pool??

I have always wanted a pool. I don’t know why, because I can’t swim. Maybe being land locked in Atlanta is getting to me. I’m a New Yorker- I went to the beach EVERY summer, it was effortless. I went to Coney Island once a week to eat at Nathans and walk in the sand.  Now, I have to PLAN trips which as caused me not to go as often.

Imagine my excitement when I obtained my first listing with a pool! I honestly wish I could buy his home myself. -THAT’S HOW EXCITED I AM, when my husband tried to burst my bubble by asking “how will you maintain it”.

He is such a kill joy at times, but it did cause me to do some online research. Here is a site on Youtube that has tons of information on how to care for a pool. It’s easier than you may think if you inherit one that has already been well maintained.

Jefferson Park Gems…

I love to stroll down Jefferson Ave in East Point. It has been a street calling ME to make it home for some time.
I feel at peace and secure walking along, peeking into the lives of the current residents. I was surprised to see the many “carriage houses” or detached guest suites most homes have, not to mention the actual spacious lot sizes.
