I’m so proud of our city, and one of the best things about working in Atlanta real estate is that I get the opportunity to introduce so many fine folks to all this great the city has to offer. It’s hard to believe that Summer’s already coming to a close. Schools are starting back, evenings are cooler, and the Fall festival season is upon us! I hope you’ll all join me in getting out and taking advantage of the great events that make Atlanta such a wonderful place to call home.
