Congratulations, Love on selling your adorable Grant Park home!

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

689 Home AvenueWe first met Love back in the beginning of 2013! An agent friend of hers was talking about selling her home but decided that it just wasn’t in his location of expertise. So, we felt incredibly humbled that he would recommend us, The Peters Company, to help Love get her home sold! When Andy and Love first met, they decided that it might be a better option to hold on and rent the home out for a year hoping for prices to rise! And, that they did! When they came back to look at the Grant Park comparable sales a year later, they were MUCH improved and Love was ready to pull the trigger and get her adorable Atlanta bungalow sold! 689 Home Avenue sold within a month on the market for 95% of list price! Congrats to Love! And, special thanks to Lee for trusting us to help get Love’s home SOLD!

Congratulations, Brandon and Deidra on Your First Home Purchase!

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

IMG_8546We’d love to send out a huge congrats to Brandon and Deidra on purchasing their first home! It’s a big year for the couple with a wedding on the horizon, but they successfully tackled house hunting, and found an awesome deal and a gorgeous home. The couple met while at college in Milledgeville, so they both loved the feel of an older home. When a house in the desirable Berkeley Park area hit the market, they acted fast and scored an amazing craftsman style bungalow built in 1930! Brandon and Deidra got a crash course in first time home buying, and we thank them for being great clients!

 

Did you buy a Metro Atlanta home in 2013? Don’t forget to file for Homestead Exemption!

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Do you like saving money? How about lots of money? If so, you must APPLY for your Homestead Exemption!

What is Homestead Exemption? Homestead Exemption is available to legal residents of Georgia for their primary homes. You are able to claim a partial exemption, which can amount to substantial property tax savings. Senior citizens may have additional exemptions available. Check with your county tax office. You are entitled to the Homestead Exemption if you owned and occupied your home on or before December 31, 2013. The Homestead Exemption filing deadlines vary by county.  However, most Metro Atlanta counties deadlines are now April 1, 2014.

Homeowners may need to provide their Warranty Deed book and page, proof of residence, social security numbers, driver’s license and car tag info.  If the property is located within city limits, the homeowner may be required to file with the city as well.

Congrats John and Laura

 

Congratulations, John and Laura on your gorgeous new construction home in one of Atlanta’s best neighborhoods, Chastain Park! When Andy first met you guys in May about leaving OTP for ITP, one of your biggest concerns about selling your beautiful Smyrna home was not finding a home that you liked as well ITP! We don’t blame you guys one bit for that worry as your previous Smyrna home was GORGEOUS (proof: click here). So, when this beautiful new construction home by Edward Andrews Homes fell into our lap, you guys knew it was the perfect fit! We’re so excited for you ! We hope you had a wonderful first Christmas in your new home and know that you will make some fabulous  memories there! Thank you for your trust in us and thanks to our friends/clients Will and Tiffany for referring us!

By the way, we hate that we weren’t able to get both Laura and John in the picture! But, we had to show you John’s smiling face with his new keys!

Congrats, Leah!

 

What fun we had selling this beautiful Smyrna home in the Oakdale Preserve neighborhood for our dear friend (and client) Leah! It’s always such fun for us to share in exciting times in the lives of our friends! You see Leah is engaged to our dear friend, Brian, and they are getting married soon! So, she is moving into his adorable Buckhead home we helped him purchase several years ago! We couldn’t be more excited about this special time in their lives. We sincerely thank you for trusting us with your home sale and hope we made the process as stress-less as possible especially in the midst of wedding plans!

Did we mention that Leah’s home sold in 6 short days on the market for 100% of her list price? All it took was a KILLER combination of staging, marketing and pricing! If you are looking to sell your Atlanta home, it would be our pleasure to help you find the winning combo to sell your home for the most amount of money in the least amount of time!

CONGRATS Leah (and Brian, too)! For more information on this sold home, you can click here.

Congratulations, Erin on your new Stacks condo!

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

photo-1Congrats, Erin! We are so excited that you finally found the perfect Atlanta home! It wasn’t an easy road, but after a summer of looking and facing some unforeseen circumstances it’s clear that everything happens for a reason. The unit at the Stacks Lofts is PERFECT – and we are excited for you to discover all that Atlanta has to offer. Moving across country isn’t an small feat, but you made it look easy! We won’t soon forget your inspection “punch card” OR your amazing attitude throughout the home buying process. Congratulations, again!

Congrats, Glenn & Shelly on your great Midtown Bungalow!

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

photo-3Congrats, Glenn & Shelly on the purchase of your AWESOME Midtown bungalow! Jennie and Shelly worked together in the PR industry, so when Shelly and her new husband Glenn were looking to purchase a new home together it was a great fit. When Glenn and Shelly walked into their new Midtown home, it seemed like a perfect 10! There was a great space for the media room AND an extra bonus area for an in-home office, but most importantly the location couldn’t be beat! We sincerely appreciate this couple putting their faith in our team, and we look forward to visiting soon and hearing about all of the great walkable restaurants and shops you have found!

Congratulations, Ashley & Scott on your Fama Heights home!

Monday, October 21st, 2013

TalbotAshley and Scott met with Andy to purchase a home a little over a year ago, but then Ashley & Scott made the decision for her to take a position overseas. They enjoyed their time in Europe, but decided to start a family and move back to the States. When they returned, they started working with The Peters Company’s buyers agent, Jennie. They quickly learned in this hot real estate market to jump at great opportunities, and they found a fantastic homes that met all of their needs in Fama Heights – a great established neighborhood off North Druid Hills. Congrats again on your awesome home and new baby!

Congrats Russ and Kelli on selling your adorable Garden Hills home in 7 days on the market!

2516 Acorn Avenue

 

Congratulations, Russ and Kelli! You sold your adorable Garden Hills home in only 7 days on the market for 98% of list price! Way to go! Kelli’s sense of style made your home pop! In fact, very few times does our stager at Simply Staged Atlanta call us to brag on a client. This time, she did! The combination of killer staging, fantastic marketing, and accurate pricing made this home SING!

We sincerely appreciate you both having faith in your friends to sell your home! See, Andy and Russ were childhood buds. And, we know it is sometimes difficult for our friends to also trust us as their real estate agents, too. So, we thank you for making us BOTH in your book! It definitely can be done! ;) We are thrilled you sold your home and even happier that you will now be in our neck of the woods in Brookhaven!

Congrats, Gina & Kathy on your great Midtown Condo!

Monday, August 19th, 2013

Park Central

Kathy and Paul have been long time clients and friends of The Peters Company. When their daughter, Gina decided to attend school at Georgia State University, the hunt was on for a great condo close to the school! They worked with Jennie, a GSU Alum to find the perfect spot! With low inventory in a hot market, finding a condo in a great location isn’t easy, but Kathy and Paul are savvy buyers and when the opportunity for a great unit at Park Central became available they didn’t waste any time. They sealed the deal and Gina and her roommate are going to enjoy the city life and college in their fabulous new Midtown condo! Did we mention it’s incredible location just 2 blocks from Piedmont Park? Congrats – we look forward to working with your family again soon!
