Welcome to September

School is back in session and I am a little sad to see summer come to a close. However, I will not be sad to see these record-high temperatures go! I am longing for the cool mornings that accompany the beginning of fall. I’ve even spotted a leaf or two starting to change color already! And how about Georgia football starting off with a bang! I'm holding strong, but I know a pumpkin spice latte is in the near future for me. Oh and maybe a pumpkin loaf from Dilettos Bakery.

Ok, you know what...maybe I'm not that sad.

Welcome September! - Dani


How's the market? In one word, “steady.” The market isn't roaring the way it was a year ago, but with increased interest rates, that is expected. The one thing that hasn't changed is prices. It seems all the experts agree and data reflects that due to a lack of inventory, sales prices are holding strong. The one thing we are seeing is longer days on the market. My prediction, in the next year we will see prices hold strong and demand stay high. When rates drop back into the 5-6% range we will see bidding wars again. So, buy today! Date the rate and refinance when they drop. Don't sit on the fence waiting or it will cost you major equity you could be acquiring.


I’ve listed two incredible lake homes this last month. Please reach out for a private tour or give me a call with any interest.


Harbour Point

A luxurious lakefront, custom-built residence situated on The Peninsula of Harbour Point, and on the market for the FIRST time. Enjoy Lake Lanier views through all seasons & a gentle walk to water’s edge. Timeless yet modern features found throughout. Premier marina location just out the back door.

3398 Harbour Point Parkway

Sundance Pointe

Truly a rare find on Lake Lanier, this luxury lakefront home has details suitable for everyone’s different tastes. Situated on a large level lot with expertly groomed path to the double-slip party dock in a deep-water cove. Desired ranch-style house over a fully finished terrace level with year-round lake views. Meticulously maintained by a single owner, 4-sided brick, high-quality & custom-built by Whitmire Homes.

3412 Sundance Drive

There are SO MANY great events around town this month. Downtown Flowery Branch has been outdoing themselves with every event they hosted over the summer. The 25th annual Dragon Boat Festival is guarantied to be a fun family day at Lake Lanier Olympic Park. Y’all know I love to dance so you’ll see me cutting a rug at the Abba cover band concert at the Arts Council!

Save the date and join me as we support one of my favorite charities, Habitat for Humanity. Newly appointed director, Lila Weaver, spoke at our August Hall County Board of Realtors luncheon. She has big plans and ideas to implement in our community. If you know a deserving family, Habitat is taking names now for upcoming homes. Reach out if you would like to contact Lila.
