   I have been a Realtor in Columbus Ga for twenty one years.  I try to keep my posts on a local level or real estate related.  I could not help writing about the Nobel Prize in economics.  All the fuss over the Peace prize left some very fine Americans under appreciated.  Thank you Jeannine Aversa, Karl Ritter and Matt Moore for publishing the names and story of the NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS IN ECONOMICS.    Elinor Ostrom of Indiana became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize in economics.  Oliver Williamson was also a winner in the field and the two shared the 1.4 million dollar prize.    Thanks again to the Associated Press for printing their story where I could find it.   Realtor Columbus Ga, Columbus Ga Homes,

     There is good news in Columbus Ga about some of our neighbors. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, made the local newspaper and it was all good news.      Members of Elks Lodge No.111 received a request from a family that needed help with a wheel chair ramp.  A child in the family had just been released from the hospital after undergoing surgery which left the child unable to walk.  Not only did lodge members build the ramp for the family.  They found another fantastic neighbor who provided free building materials.         Tripp Mitchell, from Valley Fir and Redwood, located on Norris Rd. provided the Elks with wood, nails, cement and all the construction material needed to build the ramp.  Tripp Mitchell helped out the Elks!  The Elks  built the wheel chair ramp and helpe...

    Money Magazine put out a new list of Top 10 Best Places to Live.  Congratulations to Peachtree City Ga for making the top 10.  Out of 2466 towns in the US that have a population between 8,500 and 50,000 Peachtree City Ga ranked number 8.    It is a cozy little hideaway with lots of greenspace and community amenities.  I have ventured into Peachtree City several times and enjoyed the sites within the community.  I particularly enjoyed the commercial signage size restrictions.  There were no towering Shell, Exxon or Burger King signs looming over the landscape.  Instead I found nice friendly postage stamp sized signs posted at entry ways to various commercial enterprise.     To be honest most of the time I drive right past Peachtree City on my way to and from Alanta.  Would I want to ...

      This past week 23 single family homes sold in Columbus Ga. Fifty three homes came new on the market and  thirteen came back on the market.  (Disregard all figures to the right of the Single Family heading, these figures represent areas outside of the Columbus Ga City Limits).        What is surprising to me are not the numbers of how many, what I found interesting are the comparison columns of Listing Price and Sold Price.  To me the comparison of these two columns tells me that the Listing Agents did their homework and priced the home correctly.  My hats off to you all for a job well done.     Current   Back On   Total Total Avg Avg % Of CO-OP Off Market Not Sold   Active New Market Sold List $ Sold $ Sales $ Days List $ Sales % Volume Pending Expired Other Single Family 1902 114...

     Since we are located right on the border of Georgia and Alabama and because many agents int he area are licensed in both states, I felt it important to pass on the news of the Alabama Real Estate License Law Amendment reagarding advertising.      Advertising rules were based on "letter sizing", this rule was impractical to enforce because measuring became too complex an issue.  The amended rule stipulates that, "a salesperson or associated broker will be considered in compliance with the License Law Advertising Regulation, if the name of their broker or company is prominently enough displayed that it can be read and understood.      Easy enough!  Advertisements should include your brokers name or company name so that it is easily understood by the public, what company or broker you...

     Columbus Ga, Fort Benning, area;  OK, it has not come up in discussion for awhile, but Columbus Ga is probably home to Coca Cola.  The reason for making this claim is the fact that Dr. Pemberton lived just north of Columbus back in 1869.  For those Atlanta residents who insist the soft drink home is Atlanta,   yes you are right, perhaps more correct than the Columbus claim that I made. I'm sure that there are folks in Columbus that will forever claim this is home to Coke.  As there are folks in Atlanta who may call us crazy for thinking it began anywhere but Atlanta.  The home of Coca Cola is now the entire world, the home of my Coke is my cooler or refrigerator.  This entire post has been "much ado  about nothing."  What is important is that the Historic Columbus Foundation has pr...

     In the Columbus Ga, Fort Benning, area, the Walker - Peters - Langdon House is located in the Historic District on Broadway.  It is the oldest home in Columbus and dates back to 1828.  Surprisingly it is believed to be a pre-fabricated house.  Federal cottages were built during this period with the idea of the purchasers picking them up and moving them to their land.  The original owner Colonel Walker sold the home to the Peters family. The Peters family moved into the house because they were worried about Indians and this cottage stood in a more populated area than their previous home. The clap-board siding is orginal, the cedar shingles have been restored and many of the hand-blown glass window panes are also original. The Walker - Peters - Langdon House is also a museum and open...

Columbus Ga, Ft Benning, Phenix City, all are fortunate to have access to the Chattahoochee River.  This rings particularly true for local fishing enthusiasts.  On the Georgia side of the Hooch is a wonderful 12 mile long River Walk that strectches from Ft Benning to North Columbus.This fishing spot is located right next to the VFW.  Park up top, grab a rod and reel or your favorite cane Pole, tie on a worm and press your luck.  Or go up the street a few hundred yards and put in your boat at Rotary Park.From this public boat landing at Rotary Park you could take a long boat ride all the way to the Gulf.  If you don't want to spend that much time on the water, take a walk or have lunch at the adjoining park.Easy access from the Columbus, Ironworks Convention and Trade Center.This is the ...

Downtown Columbus Georgia is thriving, new eateries, pubs, businesses and landscaping on Broadway! It won't keep you dry in the rain and may not provide a lot of shade.  It's Art!  It will give you something to talk about, you might even wonder, what were they thinking.  Broadway is dotted with metal sculptures, one of my favorites is at Heritage Park on lower Broadway. This part of Broadway is a bit more traditional, but there is ample space for artistic expression of all types. From Here it only gets better and more interesting!  By the way this beautiful structure is for lease, in the past it has housed several banks. If my memory serves me correctly.  It seems that in the 1980's Rankin Square was the focal point and the beginning of Downtown Columbus Georgia revitalization efforts....
  Posted by Chuck W on April 1, 2009 at 12:49pm in Local (Change) on my Ning Blog . . . I like and support the idea that "Individuals are finally organizing themselves to show their dissatisfaction towards the Government" who may be trying to move " Our County" in the direction of Socialism.It's been too long that our government has been " TAXING US TO DEATH" without the people uprising. It appears they think they have a right to Tax us, from the womb to the tomb. We can't allow this to continue, " Big Government" must be stopped and it appears, " We (the People) won't take it any longer".I highly recommend that everyone " take the time to support this worthy show of support - against government, from Local through Federal levels"The most obnoxious people right now are in the " Obama ad...

Home Inspection Regulation The Law Both Georgia and Alabama have laws governing home inspection. In addition to Georgia’s law, Columbus has enacted its own law. The laws vary greatly. Alabama has the most stringint of the three that govern our area. Most significantly, only Alabama requires inspectors follow a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Columbus does not require either of these so the quality of inspections can vary. Before you make your decision ask if the inspector follows a national associations Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice and if they offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Make sure that you at least hire a home inspector that is in compliance with the laws in your area. Ask to see their license. Alabama Licensure (Act 2002-517) Requires individuals p...

   One of my favorite places to eat in Columbus Ga is the Bavarian House located on Whittlesey Road, behind the Main Street shopping ctr.  I have to admit that I am partial to german cooking and Monika Washington the owner of the Bavarian House does an admirable job.  If meat and potatoes don't drive you wild then maybe some of the fantastic german desserts will.  The food is excellent and quite filling.   One fourth of the restaurant is a bar featuring the usual sports tv highlights and of course German and Domestic BEER.  All of you familiar with schnitzel will really appreciate what the Bavarian House has to offer.  Saturdays you will find a host of German ladies speaking in a variety of German dialects.   Good Food, Great Desserts and Beer, Wine and Spirits on occasion you will find...
