Committed To Communities this Saturday

Derrick DuckworthAdair Park Today President Derrick Duckworth is hosting his 3rd Committed to Communities event this Saturday, March 26th from 10am to 1:30pm. Below is a note from Derrick. We hope you can make it out to support our Southwest Atlanta neighborhoods!

I am excited to announce our third quarterly Committed to Communities event and wanted to share the following press release with you. As we did in August and November, we will be showcasing homes for sale along the Atlanta BeltLine in southwest Atlanta neighborhoods. My goal as a resident of Adair Park and as a Realtor is to join together with other neighbors, Realtors, businesses, and more to help reclaim formerly vacant homes. How are we doing this? We are working with organizations that specialize in renovating homes and making them livable and affordable so that they can be occupied by owners instead of rented out by investors. We all understand the impact homeownership can have on a community, which is exactly why we’re committed to this event.Beltline Team Logo

Please visit our website at Committed to Communities and check out photos of our last events on The BeltLine Team’s facebook fan page! This event will take place next weekend on Saturday, March 26th from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. In conjunction with the open houses (you can see the list at www.CommittedToCommunities.com), we will have a neighborhood BBQ in Perkerson Park. Please join us – everyone is invited and encouraged to attend!
