I don't want to just sell you a house, I want to help you find your home

This Saturday!

What’s the best cure for a Halloween Hangover? 
Without a doubt it’s got to be Cabbagetown’s annual Chomp And Stomp Festival! 
Test your palate against celebrity judges by rating the competitors in this now-famous chili cook off.
Wash it down with a delicious local brew, and just kick back and relax to the sounds of the
best live music in town!

The Chomp & Stomp’s got everything you expect from Atlanta’s excellent Festival Scene including a kids area and one of the very coolest Artists Markets around.

…and you wanna maybe earn your Saturday hangover?
Then plan on starting your Chomp & Stomp at the Romp & Stomp,

C-town’s 5K Race that kicks off the day’s festivities at 8am.

The Intown Agent is a big fan of Cabbagetown’s very own
Mary Todd Hairdressing Company.Barbering visionaries Steven Sloss and Sean Gardner have come together to create a
stunning bit of magic

on Carroll St. in Cabbagetown, Atlanta.
The shop is home to a locally based, friendly and talented staff of Hair Care professionals
whose services include:
mens & ladies cuts, hair color, beard trims and hot lather shaves.
The Intown Agent was super excited when Mary Todd Hairdressing Company recently began
widespread release of their own line of hairdressing products.
I love the #2 Pomade. If I wore a scent, this would be it.

In case you haven’t dropped by the shop yet,
here’s my great attempt at a verbal encapsulation of the visual delight that awaits you:
Imagine Alice in Wonderland meets Hieronymus Bosch meets Mayberry NC.
…do you really need any more of a prodding to make a trip to MTHC your next destination?

…and how bout a little family fun?

…over in The EAV, this is happening tonight!
Everybody’s welcome to take part in the costume contest, trick or treat, face painting…
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween for everybody!

Tonight’s the night!
Come on out to Grant Park to witness the spooky spectacle that is the Grant Park Halloween Lantern Parade! Brought to you by the same fine folks who organize the annual Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade, this family-friendly event has an extra eerie air about it. Feel free to join in the fun with your own lantern, or stand along the route and take them all in. The creativity is amazing–you don’t want to miss this!

Faboo EAV Renovation!

734 Blake • East Atlanta
You need to see this gorgeous 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home in East Atlanta in person.  The sleek modern kitchen is amazing!  A cook’s dream– tons of cabinet and counter space, under-cabinet lighting, center island, gas range, and it opens right to the living space so nobody’s left out of the fun.  The master suite is equally as nice with its double vanity, spacious glass-enclosed rainfall shower, and large walk-in closet.  A large deck overlooks the fenced back yard, and there’s even an outdoor storage building as well as tons of attic storage.  Give us a call and let’s check this one out!  Click here or on the image above for more info.

East Atlanta Village Neighborhood
Atlantans today know “The EAV” in its present incarnation as the hip and happening funky bohemian neighborhood it is now, but this little berg’s seen a lot over the years.  Click here or on the image above for an interesting little article that touches not only on “The Village” of today, but also its past.

Yeah, it’s awfully cold outside right now, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay inside! Check out all the fun going on around town this weekend:

Ormewood Park
3 Bedroom / 2 Bath

Just listed by The Intown Agent, this place is right on The Atlanta Beltline’s Southern Trail!  Renovated just three years ago, the brick home features an open kitchen with tons of cabinet space, stainless steel appliances, and granite counter tops.  The master suite addition is generously sized with a faboo bath and walk-in closet, and the location can’t be beat.  It sits on a quiet cul-de-sac street close to East Atlanta Village and Edgewood Park and is adjacent to five acres owned by the Trust For Public Land.

 Beautiful Brick Bungalow!

3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and the character of this gorgeous 1925 home remains intact!  A recent renovation and addition have nearly doubled the size while carefully staying true to its original style.  Graceful arches, 9′ ceilings, and white subway tile blend beautifully with the newly configured open floor plan and modern kitchen.  A new master suite includes huge walk-in closet and thoughtfully designed bath with double vanity.  Click here or on the image above for more info.  You’re going to love living in Ormewood Park!

Gunshow!

924 Garrett Street SE • Glennwood Park

One of the best things about living in Ormewood Park would be that you’re so close to chef Kevin Gillespie’s newest hit – Gunshow.  Conceived as a new take on the Southern barbecue joint he also borrows from the idea of dim sum style service–here the chefs prepare various dishes and bring them to you personally!  Locally sourced and seasonal, the offerings are constantly changing.  This is a totally new experience, and one that you’re bound to repeat often.  Click here or on the image above for past menu inspirations and reservation info.

This home is so close to so many of my favorite spots:
