New method for searching the Athens GA MLS

In the next few days, we will have a new MLS search tool on our website. I will set up different searches, such as "Athens GA condos", "Oconee County homes from $150,000-$250,000","East Athens $80,000-$150,000", and more. I will probably do a breakdown by neighborhoods in Clarke and Oconee counties. After I learn to use the new system, I can provide you with lots of information without you having to spend a lot of time customizing searches. I believe the search I do will have addresses. If not, just e-mail the MLS#, and I'll send you the address.

I'll probably add a few links on the blog too. Let me know if you have suggestions for improving the MLS search when it is added. Thanks.

3-day Walk Benefiting Susan G. Komen For The Cure

I am a 3 -Day Walker!
It's a 60 mile walk (over 3 days) to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

It started on Saturday night -- at a party, an agent in our office mentioned that she has always wanted to do this walk. Another agent said, "so, let's do it". Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time, but the next morning, I got nervous about raising the money to qualify. I have to raise $2,200 in order to be able to walk... I sent e-mails out last night to family and past client/friends and have already received almost half the required amount! So, now I'm excited and will probably raise my goal.

So then the reality of walking 60 miles started to come over me. Our broker said "that's like walking to Atlanta!" Wow! I sure didn't think of it like that. But, I'll start training next week and I know I'll be ready by October. Three other agents in our office have said they'll sign up, but I'm not sure how many we'll have in the end. Whatever happens, I know I'm in.
To find out more about the walk of if you want to make a donation, here's the link . To keep up with my successes, just check back on this blog.

Ashford Manor Saturday Sounds of Summer

Ashford Manor is a beautiful Bed & Breakfast in downtown Watkinsville. The grounds are fabulous and the rooms are individually decorated with very unique themes.
Onn Monday nights during the summer, they have music on the grounds. You can bring food and your own chairs -- or rent a table and order dinner from Donderos' Kitchen.
Today, I received an e-mail with this new schedule of once a month Saturday music events. It's a fun way to spend an evening. Click here to get the Monday night music schedule and information on staying overnight at Ashford Manor.
