Let me suggest two people to call:
Jim Logan - Extreme Inspections at 404-402-2790. Jim has taken older houses apart and put them back together. He is an experienced inspector, with 1000's of inspections under his belt and his certifications speak for themselves. If you have significant deferred maintenance, he will help you with a plan to cure the problems.
Dana James lives in Candler Park. He owns and operates Dragonfly Renovations. You can reach Dana at 404 521 3441. He's honest, reliable and fair. He's hardworking and detail oriented.
I work with an excellent handyman who is based in Kirkwood, just 5 minutes away. Let me know if you need his number for smaller budget repairs.
Good luck with this transition, and please call me if I can help you or your family.
Should you choose to go this route, I would like to throw my name into the hat for interviews for the job.
