Filing for Homestead in metro Atlanta

Did you buy a home in the Atlanta area in 2013?

If you purchased your home last year and have not already done so, remember to file for a Homestead Exemption. This can save you thousands of dollars in property taxes!

While some states provide this exemption automatically, in Georgia a homestead exemption must be applied for. Depending on the county, this can be done online, by fax, by mail or in person. You only have to apply for the exemption once. The exemption remains as long as you reside in the home as your primary residence.

Click here for Homestead Exemption application deadline dates listed by county along with a link for a Homestead Exemption application. It is important to file your application on time as applications received after the deadline will be processed the following year.

First Time Home Buyers find happiness in Decatur

From start to finish, Becky was absolutely amazing. We were bumbling first time home buyers but Becky completely eased us through the whole process. It’s hard for me to even remember how much she did, like nicely reminding us of everything we needed to take care of along the way, showing us multiple houses over the course of a year, always accommodating our busy schedules, always being available for communication, recommending and scheduling contractors for repair work after our offer was accepted and recommending a great mortgage broker (Jack Levin at Regions Mortgage) to name a few. She was definitely on top of every Continue reading “First Time Home Buyers find happiness in Decatur” »

Becky was a lifesaver

“Becky was a lifesaver! My husband and I began our house-hunt in September of 2009 with another realtor and, unfortunately, were disappointed with our realtor. After seeing many houses, it seemed that our realtor never narrowed down what we were looking for and thus, we went on a wild goose hunt for many months. We decided to end our search for our dream house until, we happened upon Becky’s website at the end of May 2010. It was very informative, professional, and we were impressed with what we saw. Subsequently, I contacted Becky to meet in person and the rest is history!

During our first meeting, Becky sat me down and went through a listing of homes in our target area and price to get an idea of what we were looking for. Then, she emailed me homes based on our specific wants and needs. She was the consummate professional and ALWAYS available when I contacted her. Because of this, we were able to find our dream home in a matter of weeks and closed on our house in exactly one month. It was definitely a wonderful experience working with her. She is very knowledgeable of the Atlanta area and always one step ahead of what needs to be done.

We just wanted to personally thank you, Becky, for all that you have done for us. We greatly appreciate it and will keep in touch. Thank you!!”
