New home….great location… BUT…

There is so much work to do to make my new home meet my vision. It’s sometimes hard coming from a fully renovated home to a “fixer upper” . Dont get me wrong- the house has the potential to be perfect:  the Beltline is my neighbor! Great schools (KIPP Strive), MARTA at my door, an active Westview Community association, spacious inside […]

Why I serve West End & Westview…

I received this email today: My name is David Hill. My mothers name is Gwenetta Hill. I was raised in the West End at 986 Oglethorpe Ave, We’ve long since moved from that house back in the late 80s.Im bumping 30 now and can remember Andrew Youngcampaigning for mayor right on that very street back […]

See, I knew I liked Will and Jada Smith..

they home school! And now they’re opening a new school… see Essence article HERE I met a man a few weeks ago who was totally against everything except for Public School..needless to say he is a Teacher in the APS system. He was going on and on bashing Charter Schools about the use of public […]

Memorial Day Weekend in West End…

We really did need this 3day weekend! The 1st day that I did get to relax was wonderful; I’m looking forward to the 4th of July.. Besides the normal race of finding the perfect house for my new buyers (which they found!) I  did attend the Malcolm X festival, had a blast and was grateful […]

I think we lost a family…

in the West End.   I decided to walk to the WEND meeting tonight and had to past their home. Normally, on a nice day like today I would see three-four beautiful brown toned little girls with sandy brown locks on the porch; they would wave, smile and say almost in unison “hi…where are your daughters? “ I remember […]

Atlanta is a money pit…

I was very disappointed when I saw the below article on creative loafing.  My water/sewer bill is already ridiculous! Now what??  Sheesh- people complain about how expensive it is to live in NY- to me, Atlanta is worse… aleast New Yorkers make comparable wages …..Can you tell right now that I’m not really feeling ATL?  Well, I’m […]

Jazz in the Parlour…

that title reminds me of Brooklyn…in my last home (my NY home) we had a “Parlour” .  This room, in many brownstones would have the baby grand piano… I didn’t have the piano but I had/have many Miles, Etta, Ella, Billie and Coltrane records.. that’s right- records!! (ok, ok…I do have some on CD also-lol) […]

Slim pickings??

It’s good to see so many new West End neighbors. It seems like we are now down to ‘slim pickings’ of homes with original character and details in the West End but there are still many crying to be restored! I’m also watching a few that will soon come on the market-next door to me are […]

Where is Nia??

Can you believe I was stuck in Grand Rapids MI and then Chicago for days?  ……………..It’s true.  Long story short- went on a trip to Grand Rapids (How do people live in that cold?  This is the same thing I said when I lived in New York!) Then when I was due to return, there […]
