Welcome to the newly redesigned website for our first domain name, originally published in 1996.
My husband, Jim, and I were agents with Remax at that time and we launched our website a full year and a half ahead of Remax of Georgia and our local Remax office.
We were both originally licensed in the mid 1980′s and have seen a complete change in the Real Estate industry over the years.
A large part of this change, for us, was establishing our own company, Dream Street Properties, LLC, on January 1, 2000.
Real Estate advertising has changed from predominantly print to almost completely internet. Some large companies use TV ads, but they usually try to drive people to their website. Remax has been running national TV ads, telling consumers that they can search ALL homes for sale on their site. That is true. You can get a basic $299 Flat Fee MLS Listing from Dream Street and your home will be on their site as well as those of all Real Estate companies, large and small. Why pay more to get your home listed on the same internet?
We have seen the how customers are represented by Real Estate Brokers change as well. When we started in the 1980′s, the agent showing another broker’s listings was actually a sub agent for the listing broker, causing confusion and some very large lawsuits. Now the buyer has the same opportunity to be represented by a Real Estate Broker. This is called “Buyer Brokerage”.
I was one of the first Brokers in Atlanta to become Buyer Broker Certified in 1987.
The internet has been one of the biggest changes that we have seen, and Dream Street continues to remain at the forefront of this rapidly changing platform for the Real Estate business.
Please take the time to read through this site for a lot of great information that will help you, whether you are buying or selling Real Estate.
