Capturing the spirit of the Mountains

Our company name is All Mountain Realty. Our motto is Capturing the spirit of the mountains. This is rather an interesting concept.

In todays world and with folks looking to move to the mountains ,What is the spirit of the mountains? I believe we are blessed in the North Georgia Mountains. The blessing has taken the form of late development. 

Late development has caused us to look at other areas and say , wait a minute. Fannin County is almost 50 percent deeded or in trust Green. Union County, Gilmer and Pickens counties boast some of the best green conscience communities. Lumpkin County has been touted as one of the best counties in the U.S to retire in. None of these counties take in the Georgia side of Lookout Mountain which has been constantly raved about in numerous mountain magazines.

So catching the spirit of the mountains is in fact keeping its essence and creating the capability for people to enjoy it. At least that is what it means to me. And I think in Georgia we have done that really well.  

Rainbow over the Mountains,  Yes really there's a bear in my yard, and the trout fishing is great  



Yes ,really , theres a bear in my yard
