Winding Woods Neighborhood of Tucker Georgia Has The "IT" Factor "I like it."  Magic words to a Realtors ears.  When I am showing homes in the Tucker Northlake neighborhoods of northeast Atlanta I often hold the homes in Winding Woods subdivision till the end of the day because I know buyers are likely to discover "IT" in Winding Woods Subdivision. Some of my Favorite Things About Winding Woods Subdivision 1. Unique homes and floor plans.  These are not cookie cutter homes.  Most were built in the 60s and 70s and they were built to last by custom homebuilders.  These homes have been updated by present owners but they still have the great bones buyers look for when making a long term housing investment. 2. Winding Woods Swim and Tennis Club is a fun gathering spot for Winding Woods famil...

Short Sale Listing in Tucker Georgia Great Buy For First Time Home Buyer I have a listing at 1714 Gloucester Way that will be a steal of a deal for a first time home buyer.  This is a short sale.  The lender will have to approve the price.  That's because the current price is less than the owner owes on the mortgage.  It needs some cosmetic love but the "bones" look great to me.  The yard is out of control but some weekends with a saw and some leaf bags could perform a metamorphosis on this ugly duckling.

 Tucker Closing Attorneys: Kareem Maddison, Office of Morris Hardwick and Schneider The English Team lists, sells and closes a lot of homes in the Tucker Georgia suburb of Atlanta Georgia so it was no accident we ran into Kareem Maddison soon after his arrival at the Tucker Office of Morris Harwick Schneider.  Our first impression was how helpful his office was with the documents sellers need to do short sales.  We soon found out he provides this same wonderful service to buyers and sellers.  Kareem could not do this without the more than capable assistance of Clarissa Choto and Nicole Warren.  They make the office tick like a Swiss watch and they always keep a smile on their face and a leap in their step!     From the MHS website Bio: Kareem Maddison is an attorney in the firm's Tucker...

New Tucker Library Opened   The new Tucker library has opened at the corner of LaVista Road and Lawrenceville Highway (US 29).  The new facility is amazing.  The interior is very open and well laid out.  There is lots of light from the wall of glass along the LaVista Road side of the facility.  There are neat sitting areas and lots of whistles and bells.  I thought the old facility was adequate but will confess the new building was well designed. Technology was given major consideration and the facility has much more computer access plus more accessible technology.  Putting a computer to search the catalog in the stacks was a great idea.  Another great idea would have been adding a vendor in the facility to sell coffee and light refreshments (Starbucks,Caribou,Dunkin Donuts).  Just sayi...
