Pumpkin Huntin’?

Are you wondering where you can both find a great selection of pumpkins this year and support a good cause? We recommend a visit to the pumpkin patch at Wesley Memorial, on the corner of South College and Peachtree! Proceeds support the Wesley Memorial Youth Ministry.

You can swing by the church and browse their huge selection after you drop off your October rent at our office on Treadwell Street. Three birds, one stone. Look at you, you efficiency rockstar!



Notes from Dianne:

“We’re proud to report some of the highest tenant ratings in local reviews,that 97% of our properties are rented for 2014, we have a 98% occupancy rate and only 2% of our properties were vacant for over 30 days.

Great job team!”



Get ready for cooler temps!

Fall is officially here and we can’t wait to wear our cozy sweaters, consume pumpkin spice everything. Aren’t the chilly weather, hay rides and colorful leaves so fun?

At home, take a moment to turn your heating system on to make sure it’s working well. While you’re at it, it’s a great time to replace the air filters and smoke alarm batteries, and check the thermostat batteries, too! Take a look outside, and make sure that debris is cleared away from the condenser.

A little bit of effort now will help to prevent frostbitten toes later.

If you notice a problem with the heat, give us a call. We’re here to help!
