Athens, GA named in “Coolest Towns” 2017

At Success Realty, we’ve know it for years, but now it is official ~ Athens, Georgia has been named in “The 24 Coolest Towns in the USA – 2017” list by Matador network.

In spite of Athens-Clarke County being one of the fastest growing counties in the country last year, the small town vibe can still be felt here, which is one of the things that makes our Athens special and a fabulous place to call home.

Athens has something for everyone from arts, to music, to food adventures.

At Success Realty, we would love to show you around town and help you find your new Athens GA area home!

Just contact us today for your view into our great town.

North Georgia Fall Colors!

Fall has barely arrived in Georgia, but there is a slight chill in the air and the color changing of leaves is not far behind.  Make sure you plan a time to explore the area for color changes.
