Asked by Heading South From Nyc, Atlanta, GA Sat Oct 29, 2011

Would like a balcony if possible. Prefer gas to electric stove. Easy access to Marta a plus. Hi-rise okay but prefer mid-rise, low-rise, or townhome. Looking for open floor plan, generally prefer modern or renovated. Prefer wood floors to carpeting.

Dear Heading South from NYC -
So are you Manhattan or Brooklyn? Or maybe Staten Island? Do you like to use ZIP Cars or need parking? The exciting thing about Atlanta from Grant Park to Chastain Park - all possible with MARTA if you don't want to drive. However, most Atlantans have cars - most as in almost everyone! So our traffic is something to reckon with every day.

There is so much to do here - no one person can take advantage of everything offered.** How about a 3BR townhouse with swimming, tennis and an 18-hole three par golf course right there - less than 10 minutes from the heart of Buckhead? Or a renovated classic apartment home with hardwood floors - right in Buckhead central? Or a mid-rise in Midtown (yes, we have one here too!) near Piedmont Park with great views and covered parking?

Let me offer you a gift: a free Atlanta Metro property search engine called LISTINGBOOK that you may customize to exactly your needs. The search is revised and up-dated every 30 minutes from the FMLS listings themselves. Click --> http://www.odatrealty.com and sign up easily for the search engine. If you need help with it, feel free to contact me. If I cannot answer the phone - I will call back - I return all my calls myself.

At ODAT Realty Services, Inc., we do the same thing other successful REALTORS do - if we are not the BEST option for your family, we will refer you to an agent that may better serve you. Metro Atlanta is huge - different areas are like completely different cities with widely varying characteristics. Our goal is to give each Client the best service possible - even if that means asking a respected colleague to be the point person.

Have a happy day -
Lynn B. Friedman, Broker/Owner

Let me know if you need a hand.

a lot to getting that wish list is going to be more about budget. my suggestion is to find an agent who works midtown to buckhead and let them help you find the right place. especially when dealing with inside ATL you want an agent who knows those areas. it is not my area of expertise, but I could recommend an agent or two that it is. let me know how I can help.

Growing up in NY and moving here was a shock to the system, there are very small slivers of Atlanta where you will find anything with the conveniences of NYC. Renting is smart, as for an experienced agent to speak with - Lee Taylor of Keller Williams - cell (404)218-4126

You'll want to look in midtown. Piedmont park area. That's where it's all happening. If you want to get a little more affordable, look towards Decatur. I won't say the internet is a bad thing to find homes, but it's better to go through a Realtor. If you find a place that's 800 a month for a half million dollar home, it's a home for sale and you rent month to month until they sell the house. Great way to live like rich folk but you might have to move a lot, home has to be showable at any moment to prospects. I'm a lender, not a Realtor but I'm looking too.
