Equal Housing Opportunity


s pr i NG 2 0 13 The evidence is clear: the days are getting longer, the temperatures are rising, and the foliage is becoming greener. To put it simply, spring has officially sprung in the South. As we enter this new season, I can feel a sense of renewed optimism not only within Harry Norman, REALTORS®, but also the industry as a whole. Industry-leading analyst Ivy Zelman recently sparked hope among real estate professionals when she enthusiastically stated, “Today, the urgency and sentiment toward buying residential real estate is back,” during an interview with CNBC. known for her almost eerily accurate past predictions of the market over the last decade, real estate professionals have good reason to take notice of Zelman’s refreshing outlook. with this renewed optimism, we can begin to rediscover areas of the real estate industry that have not seen much light throughout the recession, including the now-thriving equestrian lifestyle around metro-Atlanta, and second-home buying throughout Georgia. The spring and summer seasons are the time to explore the beautiful surroundings our home state has to offer, and our HOME Magazine is just a preview of how you can do that through Harry Norman. I hope that you enjoy what we have in store for you in the pages of the HOME Magazine. Each picture of our homes is just a slice of what these properties have to offer. I encourage you to take a look at HarryNorman.com for a more complete catalog of our wonderful homes and see what possibilities there are with your Harry Norman REALTOR®!

Ask two native Georgians about their experience growing up in the Peach State and chances are you will receive two very different answers. From the metropolitan lifestyle of Atlanta to the rural mountain towns of North Georgia to the laid-back pace of the coast, Georgia boasts a diversity held by few states. As the 24th largest state in the U.S., Georgia’s 59,441 square miles are composed of multifarious regions with their only similarity being Southern charm and the “GA” in their address.

Atlanta has long held the title of Capitol of the South and has the business activity, economy and population to prove it. The home of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport – the busiest passenger airport in the world – Atlanta has developed into a mecca of culture in the South. The ease of access both international and domestic travelers have to Atlanta (Atlanta is within a two-hour flight of 80% of the US population) has made Georgia a popular destination for second home buyers. The state not only offers a variety of geography (mountains, lakes, and beaches) but also an array of affordable yet luxurious vacation homes. One of Georgia’s most recognizable coastal towns is Savannah. Brimming with culture (Savannah College of Art and Design is one of the most prestigious art colleges in the Southeast), Savannah is popular with artists, students, families and professionals alike. With a history so vibrant and present it’s almost palpable in the air, the city is a glimpse into a more genteel time. A sizable town with well over 100,000 residents, Savannah still manages to mantain its small-town feel. According to Elaine Seabolt, President and Owner of Seabolt Brokers, LLC 62 | Harry Norman, REALTORS® HOME Spring 2013


and a Harry Norman REALTORS ® agent, this is especially appealing to the large city dwellers that dominate her client base. Not only is Hartsfield-Jackson a mere three hours away, but Savannah / Hilton Head Airport offers eight direct flights daily to Atlanta as well as multiple direct flights to other large US cities. In addition to the city’s ease of access, Savannah’s square is the largest National Historic District in the country and draws in visitors from around the globe. The cobblestone streets, manicured gardens accented with Spanish moss and oak-shaded parks appeal to people from all over. This whimsical Southern charm has lured both domestic and international home buyers alike, and while Savannah offers all of the arts, culture and entertainment of a larger city, the immaculate beaches of the coastal islands including Jekyll Island and Sea Island are a mere hop, skip and a jump away.

The equally picturesque towns of North Georgia and North Carolina have shared in the success of the Southern second home buying market. Mountain towns like Blue Ridge offer vacationers an enchanting getaway experience in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Peter Knutzen, a full time resident of Blue Ridge, explains, “Blue Ridge is thriving right now and has moved through the real estate downturn. The lifestyle is infectious...visitors arrive, sample the life here and then they’re hooked. They think, ‘How do I get myself back here,’ or ,‘We should really purchase a second home here.’ It’s really that simple.” An eccentric, artsy town set to the backdrop of mountains dotted with pristine freshwater lakes, Blue Ridge appeals to sporty outdoorsy folk, foodies and the artsy type alike. Nestled northeast of Blue Ridge sits the tranquil mountain town of Highlands, North Carolina. Despite the North Carolina address, Highlands is only two-and-

a-half hours away from Hartsfield-Jackson, making it an enticing getaway spot for second home buyers. The close proximity to the airport plus the untainted natural beauty has put Highlands on the map as a much-desired getaway spot. Second home buyers in Georgia are no longer just the affluent baby-boomers of yesteryear, fleeing Atlanta in search of a slower pace. In fact, they’re getting younger and younger, and many are coming from other states – and other countries. “No longer is it just wealthy middleaged couples,” states Elizabeth Salzarulo, broker for the Harry Norman, REALTORS ® Highlands office. “The new buyer includes thirty-something’s with young families, couples and even singles.” Now more than ever, young professionals are taking advantage and carving out a place for themselves in a market previously believed to be out of reach.

The Back Story

Young guns dream Big Tough economy proved no match for young agents of change bent on making life wishes come true One morning last July, a young REALTOR® named Lindsey Cheney was driving to meet a client when a report came on the radio that Make-A-wish Georgia had more than 600 critically ill children on the wait list – and that many of the children would die without having their wished-for experience fulfilled. Riveted, Cheney pulled over to the side of the road, did a quick Google search and made notes. Later that day, she blitzed a message to her colleagues throughout greater Atlanta. Cheney felt a personal responsibility. This was the year that she was in charge of fundraising for the charity sponsored by young Realtors' Council – and the charity was Make-A-wish Georgia. Fast forward to mid-November 2012. The yRC, a volunteer organization of Harry Norman, REALTORS® under the age of 40, presented $21,176.28 to the charity, granting the life wishes of three children.

… the tough get going In the seven years that the yRC has been sponsoring Georgia Make-A-wish, it has raised over $100,000 and granted life-dream

wishes to 19 area children. But interestingly, the more the Great Recession seized Atlanta, wreaking havoc on real estate in particular, the more these agents of change fought back for their charity – and won. In fact, the yRC raised more money for Make-A-wish in 2012 than in any of the six previous years of sponsorship. And their 2011 donation of $19,000 topped all years before that. "when you're going through a hard time personally because business is down, and then you stop to think about a child who has cancer and parents who can't pay medical bills, it puts it in perspective," says Cheney. "we saw that times were tough for charities and we doubled down."

a strategY for success The young Harry Norman REALTORS®, who each year host a giant bowl-a-thon to raise money for their charity, attacked the challenge with even greater ferocity in 2012. They started keeping impeccable records of every transaction and every communication. They had more structure, more meetings, and more determination than ever to battle their recession-born opponent. They also had a

deep bench; many yRC members had been involved in the council for years. The council had also developed many long-time bowl-athon sponsors, such as Harry Norman's Family of Services partners and a host of local real estate support services: home inspectors, builders, painters, hardware stores and the like. Moreover, to stir up excitement among agents, the yRC engaged an ambassador in each Harry Norman office throughout greater Atlanta. The ambassadors were also challenged to bring in at least one bowl-a-thon business sponsor a quarter. "we made it easy for everyone to be involved. People who couldn't afford to buy a $250 sponsorship could by $5 in raffle tickets," says Cheney. Mission accomplished, and much more importantly, wishes granted. On the evening of the November 2012 bowl-a-thon, as giant monitors flashed vendor logos and well-wishes overhead, 55 five-person teams of T-shirt-clad Harry Norman agents, staffers and supporters engaged in a heated, friendly battle of the pins – knowing all along that they were all winners from the onset. – Meg Thornton

KENNY TAKES A TRIP TO SEATTLE

KYLE TAKES FLIGHT AND LANDS IN PARADISE

Kenny decided that he wanted to go to Seattle to visit family and see the city. He wanted to go to the Space Needle, take a ferry, visit a National Park, and eat some really good seafood. Another special request was to see his older brother again, before he was deployed overseas. Not only was Kenny able to visit everything he wanted, but Kenny’s older brother was able to join him on his trip so that they could spend time together.

It was easy to see the excitement in Kyle’s eyes when he described his wish to go to Disney World! He and his family flew to Orlando and stayed in one of the lovely villas provided by Give Kids the World. While there, they visited Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios, and Sea World.This wish allowed Kyle and his family to reconnect and relax as a family without the worry of his illness, doctor appointments, or school.

Sophie and her family boarded a plane and made their way to the beautiful state of Hawaii, where they were welcomed by greeters with beautiful leis. During Sophie’s stay, she visited Pearl Harbor, learned about the aquatic life of Hawaii and the tropical Pacific at an aquarium, and splashed around at a water adventure park. Her favorite part, however, was getting to swim with dolphins!

Morgan chose to go on a Disney cruise where she had the time of her life! When she stepped foot on the boat, there was no holding her back. She and her family visited Nassau, the Bahamas, and Castaway Cay, a private island owned by Disney. Morgan also got to have dinner with and meet the captain of the ship, who even let Morgan pretend like she was steering the boat!
