alexandra Real Estate Leave a Comment

“Shortly after moving to Atlanta three years ago, my wife and I were confronted with the sad state of pizza in Atlanta.

The pizza we ended up ordering …

Today’s ajc.com features a photo feature that asks readers to vote for their favorite mid-tier, Atlanta based fast food burger: “”Arby’s or Wendy’s””.

Mortgage Rates Are Rising. Why?

alexandra Real Estate Leave a Comment

We’ve gotten used to low interest rates for several years.  They’re still pretty low, historically speaking, but they’re starting to rise again.  It’s been pretty under reported, likely due to optics.  Let’s face it, video of tornadoes, testifying IRS officials and international uprisings will always trump a montage of central bankers wonking out over monetary policy.
