Process and Insights

September 2023


With September’s arrival comes the beginning of a new season … families settle into the rhythm of the school year, football season begins, and we welcome the respite from heat and humidity. This month’s seasonal topics include:

  • The Real Estate Process & Insights: Types of home loans, inspections, surveys, title insurance, a seller’s checklist, appraisals, and more.

  • Home & Pets: Tips and tricks to keep the harmony at home with your fur babies.

  • Functional Design in Small Spaces: Under the stairway, pantries, mudrooms, and half-bath ideas.

  • Festivals, Football, Food & Fun: Best burgers in town, Atlanta Botanical Garden events, Atlanta Greek Festival, the Georgia State Fair, kid-friendly biking trails, Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, urban running, and more!

For those celebrating Rosh Hashanah, we wish you a healthy and happy new year ahead.

As we transition into Fall, you might know of someone who wants to make a transition of their own. Please keep us in mind if you or someone you know is considering a Fall move!
