What a wonderful two weeks it has been in the lives of our clients Scott and Melissa! Two weeks ago, they were blessed with a brand new baby boy with a head full of hair. A cutie! And, Thursday of this week, they closed on their beautiful brand new construction home in Crabapple Crossroads, City of Milton, Fulton County! (Yes, Milton is officially a city these days. )
History: We have a great history with Scott and Melissa. In December of 2008, I received a call from Melissa who was relocating to Atlanta. Ironically, Melissa had gotten my name from a friend of hers who had recently interviewed us to sell their Kirkwood Decatur home. Melissa’s friend decided not to sell but had a great appointment with us and passed along our name. Melissa is a sweetheart and we bonded instantly. Scott and Melissa came in on New Years of 2009 to begin their Atlanta home search. We quickly put a home under contract in Decatur (East Lake) that was adorable. It had been completely renovated and was a perfect fit. About 2 weeks prior to closing, we received the survey we had ordered and found that the seller was advertising his land as including the driveway and outbuilding to his home. Guess what? He didn’t own the property the driveway and outbuilding were on. It was a county owned easement. Needless to say, Scott and Melissa were thankful they took our advice to order a survey. After Scott talked at length with our closing attorney, Leigh Clack at Neel and Robinson , regarding the easement situation, Scott and Melissa decided not to go through with a purchase. LESSON LEARNED for all of you readers: ALWAYS order a survey!!!
Scott and Melissa were heartbroken about the situation. They decided to rent a property for a year and hold off on the search. This Winter, we started looking again and found this beautiful home in Crabapple Crossroads in City of Milton. Wow! How a year can change your life and where you live it! Melissa and Scott are glad they waited. Melissa’s office moved to the Atlanta Perimeter area from Downtown Atlanta. And, this little boy has created a need for more space and good schools. Crabapple Crossroads has no shortage of either. The school cluster (Crabapple Crossing Elementary School, Northwestern Middle School, and Milton High School) are very popular and desirable. The space is great. And, you can’t beat NEW CONSTRUCTION!
Scott and Melissa have many great years ahead of them in Crabapple Crossroads. We just couldn’t be more excited for them in this special time in their lives. And, you know the old addage – “Things always work out for the best!” This is so true for Scott and Melissa. Congratulations, guys!
