During this festive season, we realize just how blessed we are at The Lake Martin Experience. For this week’s Top Ten, we would like to share with everyone some of the things, events and/or people we are grateful for in 2017.
10: First and foremost we are most thankful for all our clients and customers. Without YOU, we could not have had the wonderful success we’ve experienced in 2017. We’ve had 112 closings during 2017 – more than two closings per week, every week! Over 80 of those closings were our listings. Thank you so much for helping us achieve this.
9: We are thankful for the new businesses that have opened on and around Lake Martin over the past two years. These businesses include The Landing at Parker Creek, Copper’s Grill at Stillwaters, Table 34 and Lake Martin Pizza. We also can’t forget the newly remodeled and expanded Chuck’s Pizza and Subs. Like these business on Facebook and visit them to enjoy truly home-grown hospitality on Lake Martin.

8: We are so very grateful for all the mortgage companies and closing attorneys that have guided us along the way as we closed so many properties in 2016 and 2017. They’ve helped us with almost 200 closings in the past 24 months!
7: We are very thankful for our Advisory Board that meets with us once a month to share new ideas and offer suggestions on better ways we can serve our customers. Our Advisory Board is composed of financial, accounting and legal experts as well as professional writers and artists. We also have local business owners and retired marina owners, all with waterfront living experience – from the beach to Lake Martin!
6: Thank you to Dr. Phillips and the gang at the wound center, Dr. Mockler and Dr. Refai, plus all the nurses and doctors in the emergency rooms at Dadeville Hospital and Russell Hospital. I’ve personally had a challenging year in 2017, health-wise. I’m well now and better than ever with the help of these fine institutions and individuals. I’m ready and excited for 2018!
5: A very special thanks goes to our fellow Realtors around Lake Martin who’ve helped us sell our 80-plus listings in 2017. We appreciate the working relationships we have with Aronov Realty, Lake Martin Realty, Century 21 Realty, Remax Around The Lake, Lake Homes Realty, Russell Lands Realty, and many more that work alongside us at The Lake Martin Experience each day on the lake. Thanks to all!
4: We are very thankful for all our incredible Lake Martin builders that work with us in creating beautiful homes for our buyers and lake lovers. Bobby Cannon, Michael Dilworth, Matt Peck, Daniel Holland and Don Allen are just a few of the quality builders we have here at Lake Martin.
3: Although they sometimes bring us a little misery, we are very thankful for our appraisers and home inspectors. They have tough jobs to do and most of the time it’s a thankless task. This includes Jon Tidwell, Hal Leary, Will Dean, Skip Lowery, Tony Johnson, to name just a few. Thank you for all you do.
2: I am so, so thankful for my dedicated and loyal team at The Lake Martin Experience. This includes Dusty, Allison, Santana, Selena, Todd plus two more Realtors coming to join us VERY soon in 2018. We also have a dedicated support staff including Art, our IT specialist; Tristan, our professional photographer; Pam, our professional writer; and Kristy our marketing guru. Thank all of you for your support and loyalty!
1: Most importantly, I want to thank each of you for taking time out of your busy schedule to read the Top Ten after I send it every Thursday at 10 AM. I started this over ten years ago. I’ve never sold any advertisements for it, nor been compensated to put any business in the Top Ten. You might be delighted to know our Top Ten is one of the most successful Constant Contact campaigns in the country! We have almost twice the “opens” of the average campaign from Constant Contact. Thank each of you for your interest. We hope we have served you well over the past decade and we are excited about 2018. We look forward to next year’s new goals. I know we will surpass them here at The Lake Martin Experience. I, personally, am so grateful to each of you!
