Great Properties in Gwinnett County Must Sell – Madison Heights


A recent article in the USA Today has made reference to the fact that homes sale prices have risen for the third straight month in July which is added fuel to speculation that the recent housing downturn has turned and better times are ahead.

With that being said, there are still numerous “deals” out there and if you are looking for a new home at a great price, we have five properties in the Madison Heights subdivision in Gwinnett County that you need to take a look at.

Madison Heights is a small enclave of homes located in one of the most desirable areas of Snellville with award winning schools, numerous shopping options, parks and so much more. This neighborhood has so much to offer and the recent price reductions make for a great deal.

With homes priced from the high $300,000’s to mid $400,000, these opportunities are not going to last. We have seen a great deal of interest since we have taken over these properties and expect to be sold out quickly.

Here is a list of these properties we are pleased to offer:

4462 Madison Run Place

4472 Madison Run Place

4452 Madison Run Place

4442 Madison Run Place

3113 Madison Run Cove

Give us a call or email me to schedule your private showings and you can email Scott Windish at Georgia Trust Bank, for your loan pre-approval on this or any other property needs.

True Perspective Still True One Year Later

Very much like most Americans, for the last three days I have been immersed in emotional confusion and uncertainty. My family, friends and even casual acquaintances of the last few days all find ourselves pooled together in a terrible crisis situation with only limited understanding of how we got here or why this had to happened. We have been valiantly struggling to find answers to our questions from within and among ourselves, because the experts holding most of the important facts are difficult to reach and reluctant to provide specific details or even speculations about the immediate future. This environment produces tremendous emotional strain, because of the apparently devastating effects for the future on so many lives.

Unlike most other Americans, for the last three days I have not been overwhelmed and consumed by the news coming from Wall Street and Washington DC. My family, friends and many wonderful new acquaintances of the last few days have spent time waiting, weeping, praying and seeking encouragement in a small second floor waiting area outside the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Candler Hospital in Savannah, Georgia. We have all spent hours standing at the bedside of loved ones, who are fighting battles against serious illnesses or injuries that have proven to me just how short and precious life really is. Many of us have had to suffer the terrible news that our loved ones may actually be losing their battle. Some have lost the battle, while others do show signs of improvement and growing strength. We’ve even been blessed at times to witness great joy as we move throughout the hospital and see other families celebrating the birth of a new baby. The point for me, and hopefully many others, is that most of the worries of this world are really much less important when viewed from the ICU perspective.

I know this is not my typical fun and upbeat blog post, but this is really something I felt compelled to share, because having the right perspective is essential in all areas of life but very difficult to keep. Just visit an ICU waiting area to get a better perspective on your own personal crisis situations.

Water, Water, Everywhere… DANGER WILL ROBINSON…

I wrote a post not long ago about how water (uncontrolled) can destroy your house, and how simple things like gutters and paint can protect your investment.

But this isn’t abut anything so trivial…

Displaced drivewayIf you haven’t been paying attention to the news… or you aren’t reading this post in mid to late September (2009), we are having some serious water issues here in Atlanta.  The words 100 year flood are making the rounds… and I have NO reason to not believe that.  I have been here 20 years and have never seen anything like this.

A Hero in Life, A Hero in Death


As an old law enforcement type, I felt obligated to go to a memorial service for a fallen U.S Air Force Security Officer from Mac Dill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida.

It was a very sad occasion when I learned more of the facts of this great and untimely death. It was a loss that greatly affected the officer’s family and friends, and it was a loss to all of the U.S. military forces, and as I learned, it was the first U.S Air Force Security Officer lost since Viet Nam.
