AJC recognizes Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty agent Angel Ramos for his style.

May 6, 2010

Taken from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution  Angel Ramos, 27, is a luxury real estate specialist and head of Sports & Entertainment at Atlanta Fine Homes. He lives in Buckhead. Here, he sports a pair of vintage tortoiseshell Shuron Sidewinder glasses.   

SIGNATURE STYLE: “Eclectic elegance with a touch of Italy. I’m very strict in regards to details and fit. I think no matter what you do your style should reflect your personality.” 

FAVORITE STORES: “Most of my wardrobe is custom, however, I love shopping from T.M. Lewin, Yoox, Virtual Clothes Horse and Forzieri for my everyday dress attire. Now for my casual attire I tend to never go wrong with driving loafers, Topsiders or white Chuck Taylors, all of which are purchased at Bloomingdales, Neimans or the sites above.” 

A WEAKNESS: “Brown Shoes.” Ramos, who prefers no socks, shows off a pair of his A. Testoni tassel loafers. 

BIGGEST SPLURGE: “You can’t be cheap when it comes to purchasing suits. With the type of clientele I work with, it’s crucial to look on point at all times because if you’re selling a multi-million dollar home or condo you’re not going to want to be seen with a cheap suit. Appearance is crucial in luxury real estate!” Ramos shows off his silk knot cuff links from Brooks Brothers along with the functional buttons on his custom-made Astor & Black suit. 

 

Ramos joined Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty in 2007 and is a part of the Bayne Group in the Buckhead Office.  Before selling real estate Ramos was a division 1 college baseball player and played semi pro in Puerto Rico.  

Angel specializes in pairing an elite clientele with the most distinctive properties and real estate investment opportunities.  When asked about working with famous people he responded, ” I sold Jason Heyward star right fielder from the Atlanta Braves a townhouse last year and he’s currently tied for 3rd in the major leagues with eight home runs thus far, AS A ROOKIE!!”  Angel and his wife, a RN in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta ,have lived in Atlanta for four years.

Pending home sales jump 5.3 percent (Natalie Ransom)

Buyers racing to beat the home buyer tax credit deadline pushed pending sales of existing homes in March up 5.3 percent from the previous month, according to the National Association of Realtors.

Pending sales were up 21.1 percent from a year ago.

The Pending Sales Index does not break out specific metropolitan areas. But by region, pending sales in the South were up 28.3 percent from a year earlier.

The tax credit expired April 30, and lack of that incentive may slow sales in the next few months, the Realtor’s group said.

“In the months immediately following the expiration of the tax credit, we expect measurably lower sales,” said NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun. “Later in the second half of the year, and into 2011, home sales will likely become self-sustaining if the economy can add jobs at a respectable pace, and from a return of buyer demand as they see home values stabilizing.”

Is Atlanta a “fun” place to live? (Natalie Ransom)

May 1, 2010

Are you having fun yet, Atlanta?

According to a recent study by Atlanta Business Chronicle sister publication Portfolio.com/bizjournals, Atlanta is a moderately fun city, ranking 34th out of 100 American cities.

A comprehensive formula was created to evaluate the opportunities for fun in the nation’s 100 largest markets. And according to the study, Atlanta is a great place to shop, but not so fun for those into sports and gambling.

The process began with the collection of federal statistics for 14 relevant types of businesses, from retail stores and restaurants to gambling casinos and golf courses. Each market was graded on both the volume (total number) and the concentration (rate per 100,000 residents) of such businesses.

Results were then grouped in seven broad categories of fun: shopping, food and drink, culture, popular entertainment, gambling, and high-impact and low-impact sports. The best scores went to markets that performed well in a wide array of categories.

Atlanta placed 18th for shopping, 30th for food and drink, 35th for culture, 37th for popular entertainment, 56th for gambling, 40th for high-impact sports and 42nd for low-impact sports.

The top cities for fun, in order, are New York, Chicago, Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland (Maine), Philadelphia and Minneapolis.

A Church Preserved…One Stone at A Time

February 10, 2010

A pioneer effort to preserve one of America’s great architectural treasures.

Bill Harrison, an Atlanta architect, told a wonderful story to David Boehmig, our Founder and President, last week about the relocation of a church from Buffalo, NY, to Norcross, Ga.  St. Gerard’s Catholic Church (completed in 1911), is located on the shores of Lake Erie in New York. 

The church is a magnificent scaled-down approximation of one of the four major basilicas in Rome. The exterior is limestone and the interior is travertine marble and plaster so moving the church would not be easy. To do so, would require painstakingly disassembling, moving, and reassembling it one stone at a time.
