Valentine's Day restaurantsValentine’s Day is eight days away, have you made your dinner reservations yet? If not you still have time and The Cueny Team is making it easy for you with some great dinner suggestions.  We love good food and a good atmosphere! When we started talking about what restaurants we wanted to recommend to our readers, we discovered Nicole was our resident foodie! She definitely had a few she loved and wanted to make sure you knew about.  We put the whole teams ideas down on paper and it was fun to see the mix of cuisine that we each like! There is something on our list for everyone, so don’t wait any longer make those reservations!

Pampas  – Argentinian Steak House – They bring steaks to your table for you to choose from. You select the piece of meat you want and they cook it to order. The chimi churri sauce is AMAZING.  It is in the Johns Creek area.

Hugo’s Oysters – This place is so casual and fun and has great char-grilled oysters that melt in your mouth. It is in Roswell.

Made – Spanish tapas – Talk about a romantic and very cool building. Made has a great urban feel right in the heart of Alpharetta. As as side note for later, when the weather warms up you will want to take advantage of its patio.

Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails – With fresh local ingredients (many from their own garden ) and a seasonal menu you can never go wrong at Milton’s.  The atmosphere is perfect. The 150 year old farmhouse and cottage from the 1930’s has been loving restored for the perfect dining experience.  Milton’s also has a special Valentine’s menu planned for this year too!

Co’m Dunwoody – Vietnamese cuisine –  The ban joi with chicken is fabulous! You get to create your own spring roll with rice paper, fresh vegetables, noodles and chicken (or any protein you desire).  It would be a fun place to go for Valentine’s Day. A great environment to relax and have a good time. And while it is not always in season or available the sticky rice with mango can’t be beat for dessert!

Brooklyn Cafe – This is great neighborhood restaurant located in Sandy Springs. The food is always exceptional whether you choose from old favorites or the daily special. They also have a great wine list! The staff makes you feel right at home!
Hearth – If you and your sweetheart prefer something a little more low key, Hearth is an amazing pizza tavern and the exposed brick walls and wood bar couldn’t be any cozier on a cool February night in Sandy Springs.
See we have lots of ideas! Try something new and make your reservation today! You don’t want to disappoint that special someone.

Can you believe the end of the year is upon us? We are already halfway through November! I was starting to feel the holiday spirit then

holiday events marietta, alpharetta, cumming

This beautiful home on Maple Avenue is one of many on the Marietta Home Pilgrimage.

saw a post on the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Center’s Facebook page that really sent me into holiday mode! The Roswell and Alpharetta Holidays Along the Divine guide is out and it has over 120 events for you to enjoy throughout the holiday season! Everything from open houses to parades to shopping guides! If that won’t put you in the holiday mood, I don’t know what will! Click here to see the full brochure. You can also enter a contest to win a $100 gift card. 

I started checking out other area sites to see if there were any more events to add to my calendar. Marietta has announced the Pilgrimage Home Tour and Cumming has numerous things on their calendar. You could fill everyday with something if you wanted to. I am sure more will be announced in the next few weeks. You can always check any one of the numerous Patch sites – Alpharetta-Milton PatchMarietta Patch and Cumming Patch to find events along with the city sites.The Alpharetta, Ga, Marietta, GA and Cumming,GA websites are all full of current information and calendars.

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words or in this case a graph.

increased sales price in north fulton

Sales prices are on the rise in North Fulton, Milton and Forsyth County.

Do you see that green line – it shows that sales prices of homes in North Fulton, Milton and Forsyth have had some definite increases this year as compared to the end of 2012.

And look at this:

foreclosures down

Homes sales continue to increase.

Not only does this graph show the steady increase of market sales over the past year, but it also shows a significant drop in foreclosure homes! This is all great news for our market!

You might also have noticed that new listings are down in the above graph. That contributes to the low inventory situation we have seen this year.  If you are thinking about selling your house, now is a great time. Prices are on the rise and not nearly as many homes are on the market as in previous years. Give me a call! I would love to help you list your home!

Back in January and February we talked about the ground breaking and new website for the mixed use development, Avalon in

Alpharetta. I have been following the blog and the development’s YouTube channel to see how things are moving along and what exciting things they are talking about.

The blog posted a video this week about the walkability of the community and retail shops. It is interesting for more than one reason, not just because of how it will make Avalon a success and a place everyone will want to go, but also because studies are showing walkability of areas is going be a growing key factor of economic success for communities, developments and cities.

A quick Google search of walkability returned a plethora of websites and blogs dedicated to the topic of walkability. You can go to wikipedia and get the definition, visit walkscore.com and get your current walkability score or find available rentals and what its walk score is, or even peruse a multitude of websites on various projects, studies and more about walkability. It certainly is a very relevant topic.

Avalon was developed with the walkability concept in mind and Lew Oliver is the on-site town urbanist for Avalon.  He has put a lot of thought and planning into making Avalon meet all the criteria for a successful walkable mixed-use development. Visit the Avalon blog and watch the video of Mr. Oliver and hear what he has to say. You will also be treated to a virtual tour of the Avalon concept!
