Buckhead Real Estate

Buckhead is the northern metropolitan section of Atlanta. Buckhead is famous for its decadent nightlife, fine dining, and for having some of the best shopping in the southeastern United States. Buckhead comprises a large portion of the Atlanta north-end neighborhoods between I85 and I75 along with several large neighborhoods to the west of I75.

The name "Buckhead" comes from a story that Henry Irby, who had a general store and tavern at what is now the intersection of West Paces Ferry road and Roswell road, killed a large buck deer and placed the head in a prominent location. Prior to this, it was called Irbyville through most of the 19th century. According to Forbes Magazine, Buckhead is home to the ninth-wealthiest zip code in the nation (30327), with a household income in excess of $341,000 per year and is the location of the wealthiest of Atlanta's neighborhoods

Midtown Real Estate

Midtown Atlanta has in the past decade been a fast-growing community with appreciating land and property values, as land is a precious commodity in this urban area. As residents begin to return to the city following decades of suburban retreat from the city center, Midtown Atlanta offers an attractive mix of amenities and attractions, as well as proximity to downtown offices and destinations. The recent construction and opening of the Seventeenth Street Bridge over the Downtown Connector has reconnected Midtown with the west-side of the city. It connects Midtown to a new multi-billion dollar mixed-use development, called Atlantic Station, on the former site of the Atlantic Steel company, which is the site of new housing, office, and retail space. In early 2006, Mayor Shirley Franklin set in motion a plan to make the 14-block stretch of Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta (nicknamed "Midtown Mile") a street-level shopping destination envisioned to rival Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive or Chicago's Magnificent Mile. It has brought a number of stores along the stretch, such as the upscale Kartell. Restaurants such as Piola, Ri Ra Irish Pub, and RA Sushi all have locations in Midtown. Apple has also expressed interest in building a flagship store along the Midtown Mile development.

Smyrna Real Estate

In 1991, the city began a community redevelopment project known as "Market Village," in order to create a well-defined downtown. Included were a community center and 28,000-square-foot public library. A mixed retail and residential district was modeled after a early 1900s city village, including a square with a fountain. This, and other expansions have revitalized the downtown area and acted as a magnet for further redevelopment throughout the city—including thousands of upscale homes - mostly townhouse and condo communities replacing older neighborhoods. As a result of the redevelopment, and Smyrna's key location of a residential suburb in the north west center of metro Atlanta, the population has skyrocketed.
