Well we are officially 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving. Lets just let that sink in….. Okay, enough of that. Yikes! Where has the year gone?!
Time to get out the cookbooks, send the invites, prepare the table with all your favorite harvest decorations, and most important dig out those “stretchy pants” in preparation for the 2 plate-fulls of turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, and sweet potatoes that is somehow justified on this one day each year.
We all have our different Thanksgiving traditions that tend to stick throughout the years, because it simply wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without them. For some, enjoying a cup of joe while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Others, hours spent in the kitchen magically making heavenly dishes that pack on the pounds. Let’s not forget where you will find all the men- crammed onto the only 3 person couch in the living room cheering on the football game of the hour. (GO STEELERS!) Ending the day with a thankful heart and a slice of grandma’s pumpkin pie.
Whether you’re traveling or hosting- relax and enjoy that day or two away from work embracing your loved ones. Next thing you know it will be Christmas and the New Year will begin… let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Enjoy Turkey Day!

We are all about restoring used items. The beauty of this concept is that you can create something new from something old! In this example we have taken some old books and given them a little shine. Spraying the books with some gold spray paint created an elegant, sophisticated, and stylish table piece! Your item becomes a topic of conversation and will show your guests you have some talent in those hands of yours! Add style and personality to your space by restoring older items and reusing them as beautiful home decor! We want to see what you come up with- so be sure to share your greatest creations!
Be it old, be it new, be it borrowed…..make it new!
Ladies working hard in the office today! Getting ready for the weekend! Hope everyone is having a fabulous Thursday! (pssstt…Tomorrow is Friday!!!)
Crunching numbers today as we begin the stages of a new home renovation, and we have just the man for the job! Ralph’s brains and experience are helping us get off the ground and running this afternoon.
Referrals are the best means of business!
We are a little loopy over the strong aroma of the granites epoxy!! Gorgeous granites were installed today in one of our Decatur renovations. Check out the pictures on Facebook to see more mouth watering, eye catching, and head turning pictures!
It’s that time again ladies and gentlemen!
We are entering a new season. One that is filled with change, growth, festivities, and restoration for things to come. We are grasping this season with arms wide open, feet planted firmly, and hearts eager to see change!
September is here, and it starts the changing of seasons. At Berry we are excited about the season ahead. For us it means new opportunities. Opportunities to catch on the wave of change that is spreading so rapidly in our nation. We are slowly beginning to see the tent pegs, or our foundation you could say, that is planted expand beyond what we could have imagined. We just recently welcomed the 4th generation of the Berry lineage to our design team as Lead Project Manager and Design Director. What a privilege to have such young enthusiasts working side-by-side eager to see what they can bring to the table. As we welcome a new member to the team we look forward to new projects that will require fresh ideas, unique design inspiration, and seamless team work that will pull it all together. We are so excited to be able to work together as a team to advance and inspire this city. Our ideas are rolling as we put our heads together in hopes for greatness.
As we get excited about the things to come we encourage you to think outside the box. What do you want for your home, life, family, career this season? Dream big, think for yourself, and go beyond the norm!
Kitchens are the heart of the home. Like any homeowner would know, when it comes to kitchens, space and warmth are just must haves! Whether it’s a holiday gathering, your teenager’s birthday party, or just another week-night for dinner: your … Continue reading
In a recent meeting a client asked us to play in our sweet spot, something that we have been doing for the last several decades and is what makes us stand out. For them the process entailed- finding a home that would produce a long-term investment, renovating the home in order to increase future potential revenues, and then to manage the property, giving our client ease of mind and the best possible recommendations for their specifications. For us this is what makes our company unique and in reality relative to our clientele who are guaranteed the package of all divisions while only dealing through one representative. Most exciting for us was the fact that this referral came through a recent renovation job that was done on their street. It thrills us that people are able to see our work and are interested in what we have to offer them. The best kind of work is that which speaks for itself.
For most agents, vendors, and contractors it’s fast paced, big numbers, and not a lot of quality. In the many years of familiarity with most of this we have set high standards that really are as simple as informing you what will be best for your scenario. Sure getting the job done is always a good feeling but our goal is to make sure that down the road you are just as satisfied as when the product was produced. It is most fun for us to be able to manage with excellence, what is so valuable to you. We live in one of the most prosperous and exciting cities, don’t you agree? We are so looking forward to building the next generation together.
As one of the oldest full service real estate firms in Atlanta we have been our clients advocates; helping them navigate the world of home ownership since 1932. We have implemented a Project Management system that is designed to pull together all aspects of your home renovation and/or home building needs and orchestrate your project to fulfill the dreams you have for your home.
Home owners are demanding a change in the Home Design/Build industry; they are tired of contractors who over-charge and under-deliver. We’ve heard your complaints about your past experiences and we have taken what we have learned and developed a Project Management System/process that is effectively taking a broom and dustpan to the industry.
Few firms have successfully entered the world of Residential Project Management, a concept found largely in the commercial construction arena. Our team of professional Project Managers has over a century of combined experience in the industry and are trained to remodel your home to the highest standards of custom building and remodeling.
Pioneering since 1932…
One of the most important things we do as human beings is use our sense of hearing to really listen to people. Because if we ‘hear’ what people are saying we connect and develop empathy and thus relationship is born! When you are meeting with someone from the home industry one of the most important traits to look for in a company is for the people within the company to really be listening to what you are communicating to them. If you have a contractor give you a bid for your project without seeing your property and hearing the details of what you want done then in the famous words of Finding Nemo…”Keep on swimming… swimming, swimming!”
We believe there is a strategy for every house. People are not cookie cutter and neither are their dreams for their home. As a project management firm, we love helping people realize and walk out the dreams they have for their families home life. Have a look at this recommendation from a client that we helped last spring…
