In the wake of Hurricane Irma, Metro Atlanta saw thousands of downed trees, and today many in our area are still without power. As line crews continue the hard work of restoring power, we thought a few reminders might make clean up a little easier in your neighborhood.

  3.       Take lots of

At PSP, we’re gearing up for REALTOR Safety Month in September, and just in case you were not present for our continuing education class entitled, “Real Estate Assault Awareness,” here are some of the important points that you missed:

The class instructor was Ken Malcolm, a 32-year veteran of the Covington Police Department and Criminology Professor at Georgia State University. Malcolm started the course by saying there are two types of “bad guys:” the opportunist and the predator.  “Both love to target real estate professionals,” he said. “Of all the courses you’ll take, this one is the most important.”

Peggy Slappey Properties’ August Sales Meeting showcased two of the brokerage’s top producing agents:  Wayne Kelley for New Home Sales, and John Slappey for General Brokerage/Resales.  The two agents fielded questions that ran from “What is the best marketing tool you use to promote yourself?” to “How do you survive the lean times?” In case you missed it, here are the highlights:
