Downtown Ellijay looks a little differenet since the "Scarecrow Invasion!!" Our office participated by creating a pirate scarecrow. He is adorned with jewels, money, and of course a faithful bird. I must say that he looks great!! It is events like this that give Ellijay its small town charm. If you like the charm, atomsphere, and people of the small towns, maybe Ellijay is the place for you. Go to our website at www.mountainairerealty
and look at all the homes that we have. You can also search our mls database that host all the listings in the county. Don't forget to come out this weekend and support our town and local businesses.

The morning air is cool, the temperature in the night is falling and officially it is the fall season. If you have a second home it is now a good idea to have your home winterized. Being in the mountains, you are never sure when that first frost is going to happen. That is why preparing your home sooner is better! You need to find a plumber who will winterize your home and winterize it correctly. This protects the pipes in the winter. A small cost of winterizing a place prevents a larger price in fixing plumbing later.
Your primary home needs to be prepared for winter also. You need to check your outside faucets and cap them off if necessary. Some of the newer faucets are types that as long as the water is turned off that it will protect itself. If you plan on using your chimney during the winter months, it is best to go on and have your chimney swept to prevent any chimney fires. Also, the sooner you fill your propane tank or oil tank, usually the better of a price you will have.
Taking these small steps will make your winter better and your house happier!
Good morning everyone!!! I just wanted to let you know what the weather was like today in Ellijay. Last night the air started turning cool and I was able to open up the screen doors, turn off the air conditioner, and let the fresh air in the house!! I knew the air would be crisp this morning. A few more mornings like this morning will have the leaves turning colors in no time. So make sure you start packing your bags soon! Looking out my office window, I can see that the Bradford Pear Trees on Hwy 515 has a few red leaves on the trees. Just look at the photos. I will post more when more leaves start changing! Happy fall y'all!!!
