Avalon Alpharetta

Live life in a unique work, live, play environment , like nothing else in the Atlanta Metro. Rendering from experienceavalon.com

Each week at Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty we have a sales meeting and discuss a wide range of market information and often have guest speakers. This week, we had the VP from North American Properties, Tim Perry, come tell us more about the Avalon.

Mr. Perry gave us some background on himself and North American Developers. They have changed their business model over the past several years, previously they designed Retail and big box stores -Target, shopping centers, Publix and more. Now they are experience makers – looking to engage consumers in the environments they create.

From dawn-to-dusk the experience at Avalon will be unlike anything else in the southeast. Ideally you could leave the office at Avalon and walk to your yoga class at Lu Lu Lemon…then head to Cru Bar for a glass of wine and then dinner at The Oak steakhouse. At the end of your evening, simply walk up the hill to your luxury residence. For those that will work, live, or visit Avalon it will be an experience for all to remember and enjoy each and every time.

Some details that helps make this such a great project is a 25,000 sq ft state of  the art technology/conference center. Residents will have access to the fastest technology and internet speed, a Gigabit of speed…hundreds of times faster. To put it into an example we all can appreciate, a high definition movie download can happen in seconds! GA Tech is the only other place in the state to offer such technology and speed for users. Hotwire will provide the service.

There will be concierges with a la carte services, valets and a standardized high level service across the property.

Are you curious about what retail is currently signed on to create this exceptional concept. Some of the retail will include:

The Oak steakhouse

Italian restaurant

Whole Foods

18 story luxury hotel which is still being determined

Regal stadium reserve searing

Ford fry (Atlanta’s most recent & renown chef will be opening a Spanish restaurant)

Crü wine bar

Kona grill


Teds Montana

Pinkberry yogurt


Lu Lu lemon


Free People

C Wonder

Fab rik


Tommy Bahamas

Banaba Republic

Caffe gio Antico


Janie and Jack

Impeccable pig


The first phase is scheduled to open in October 2014.  I will continue to pass along any news I hear about this exciting development! I’m looking forward to shopping and dining at Avalon, are you?

3236 Balley Forrest Drive

Marketing trips benefit homes such as 3236 Balley Forrest Drive in Milton and many others around Metro Atlanta.

Today, I want to share with you one of the exciting perks of listing with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty. Sotheby’s is a worldwide brand that immediate brings to mind luxury and fine living when you hear the name. Often in order to match the perfect property with a new owner, we utilize our Sotheby’s affiliate network to market  homes not only outside of our great city, but outside of our country.

Jenny Pruitt, CEO and Founder, as well as David Boehmig, President and Founder of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty, will be traveling to Hong Kong this fall to promote our properties in the Metro Atlanta area to Asia’s most affluent buyers at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Autumn Sales of fine art, wine and jewelry.

It is exciting to be a part of a company that utilizes its resources to provide excellent client service.

Learn more about the Hong Kong event and others like it in this video.

Living in Atlanta often gives us the opportunity to see some amazing real estate. Working in Buckhead, Roswell and the Alpharetta areas, it is not unusual for me to see multi-million dollar homes for sale. These homes typically have prestigious addresses and a vast array of amenities. Sports courts, extensive home gyms, wine cellars, home theaters, putting greens and guest houses are commonly found in these luxury homes.

The most expensive homes sold in my service area for 2013 ranged in list price from $2.6M to $6.5M. Two of the homes on the list are homes built in the early 1900’s and include the home originally built the President of Georgia Power in 1929.

The homes include:

570 Stonemoor Circle – listed for $2.6M

estates in Roswell

Stately home on 2 acres in the Stonemoor Subdivision in Roswell, GA.

170 15th Street – listed for $2.9M
