This was a great event as we got a firsthand view of the Northside portion of the Altanta BeltLine. For more information about the BeltLine Project, visit their website and connect with them on Facebook. Here are some race day photos - enjoy!

Just as the ever-present “junk drawer” seems to always generate more clutter, there is often a closet in the house that ends up as the designated place to stash things that need to be placed out of sight. Sure, we say to ourselves, “I’ll find a better spot for that later” or “I’ll unpack that box when I have more time,” but procrastination and other priorities take over and our closets remain in untidy neglect. This Spring, we invite you to reclaim your closet space and turn that pile of clothes and miscellaneous items into a masterpiece that you would be proud to show off to any guest (not to mention that you won’t have to dig through a heap of stuff to find your things!). Here are some of our favorite closet organization…

Even for professionals, it can sometimes prove challenging to stay on top of all the changes going on in the business. We like to ensure that our team has the most current and accurate information on hand in order to serve you better. At a recent Turbo Tuesday meeting, Mike Gambill of Southeast Mortgage presented various updates on the mortgage industry.
