It was great to see everyone at the Peggy Slappey Properties client appreciation festival this past Saturday, October 23rd. The event is held each year as the leaves begin to change and is a fantastic opportunity for PSP clients - both old and new - to gather and enjoy some fall fun.

This year's event was held at the Buford Corn Maze. Over 700 RSVPs were received, and PSP agents turned out in force to greet everyone as they trickled in from 1pm until 6pm. There was cotton candy, a balloon artist, barbecue lunch, and a pumpkin for each family. Guests explored the corn maze, took a hayride, played on the jumping pillow, and posed for photos with photographer Jpegs By JGlo. If you or your family posed for the camera, look for an email with

It's that time again, when temperatures are dropping each night below freezing in metro Atlanta. It's not just the standing water outside that freezes. If you're not careful, it could be the water lines inside your home, too. But there are easy steps you can take today to save the hassle and expense of frozen and burst pipes this winter. 

Set Faucets to a Trickle

When temperatures are sure to fall below freezing, set faucets in kitchens and baths to a slow trickle overnight. Letting the water drip may not be enough to avoid frozen pipes. This is especially helpful on faucets located on outer walls in older homes that may have less efficient insulation.

Halloween will undoubtedly look a little different this year. There will be fewer parties, and less people attending those that are held.

Keep those princesses and superheroes safe with a few simple rules, updated for 2020.

  1. Keep your group small this year and stay together throughout your route.
  2. Give other groups of trick-or-treaters plenty of space.
  3. Carry hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.
  4. Glow in the dark! Reflective materials and flashlights let drivers more easily see kids who accidentally wander into the street.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that children are four times more likely

Memorial Day is an important day of observance, a national American holiday where we pause to remember and appreciate the sacrifice of our fallen service members. Unfortunately, this year’s observances of Memorial Day across the country will look a bit different than they have in years past. With CDC guidelines still advising against gatherings of more than 10 people, parades and events have been cancelled in towns both large and small.

But in Gwinnett County, officials decided to get creative. Instead of cancelling the annual event, the usual ceremony will be moved online. It will include a performance of the Star Spangled Banner and Taps followed by a three-volley salute. There will be remarks by County Commission Board Members and Retired Marine
