Peggy Slappey Properties was happy to host the recent Ribbon Cutting at Lilburn's newest active adult community, The Cottages at Noble Village. There are 68 new home sites in the community, with several homes fully complete and ready for a quick move-in this fall.

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

Thanksgiving is just TWO days away! If you are hosting this year, you are likely feeling a little stress right about now. Before you start chopping, peeling and mixing, there are a few practical steps you can take to get your home ready for the biggest meal of the year. They’ll help avoid some big potential problems and keep things running smoothly all day long:

1.       Clean Your Pipes. Did you know Thanksgiving week is one of the busiest weeks of the year for plumbers? This is because, as we cook, we inevitably drop things down the drain that shouldn’t be there. Refuse like potato skins, rice, and poultry skin can quickly clog drains and should never be put into a garbage disposal. If your drains are already slow, now is a great time to call a

It’s that time of year again, when kids across Metro Atlanta fill their backpacks, climb onto the school bus, and watch Mom and Dad dance a happy jig as they wave goodbye. The long summer vacation season has drawn to a close and families are settling in for the school year. Maybe the last thing on their minds is packing up and moving.

What happens to real estate sales when school starts?

In the short term, sales slow. There are fewer homes on the market already, since Spring is traditionally the hottest time to list, and there are fewer buyers looking because people are focused on settling into the new school-time routine. This lull, though, is quite short-lived. Sales typically see an uptick just after the Labor Day weekend – the unofficial
