Thu, Jan 2nd 2020 1:46 pm by Gwen Fowler Pondering with Gwen

Own a boat in SC? Live on one of our beautiful Private lakes? New changes to the boat registration laws started yesterday.



January 2, 2020, Dick Mangrum

South Carolina boat owners are reminded of a change in the boat registration rules. Starting yesterday, boat registrations are changed from three years to every year. Anyone considering buying a used boat can visit the DNR’s S.C. Boat Facts and look up the hull I-D to make sure the taxes are up to date. If you are buying a boat for the first time in 2020, you will need to visit your county tax office and pay the property tax due on the boat based on the bill of sale. After that, apply ...

Go Tigers! By Gail Bibb

Tue, Dec 10th 2019 1:09 pm by Gwen Fowler Things to Do In Oconee

Today I am going to brag about the Clemson Tigers.

I live about fifteen miles from campus and grew up attending farm shows and sports events all my life. My dad loved the farm shows on Bowman Field. All the new farm equipment would be displayed. I remember sitting on those new tractors. Then we would go get a milkshake at the dairy. This was when Clemson was an all-male military school! Very different. 

In high school, we would go to Clemson to hang out. I can remember running down "the Hill" in Death Valley. Back then it wasn't locked up. Nobody caused any damaged. Times have definitely changed.

Clemson has been and will continu...

My office is growing!

Wed, Aug 28th 2019 11:19 am by Gwen Fowler Pondering with Gwen

When you call the office you might not get just me, Henry, Amy or Michelle. The office staff is growing and I would like to introduce to you Josh Lother, Gail Bibb, Kirk Cooley, and Ashley Qualls. Each of them brings their own unique experiences and talents to the office.

Josh has been here about 9 months now as a buyers agent. Josh enjoys the research portion of the hunt and will work to find you the lot or home that fits your needs. 

Kirk has many years of experience as primarily a buyers agent in the local area. Very down to earth and patient.

Gail has worked with General Contractors and has great knowledge in that area. She would love to help you find a lot to suit your future home...

Mitty Days... Off to the Races

Thu, May 2nd 2019 1:29 pm by Gwen Fowler Pondering with Gwen

This past Saturday, April 27th, Henry and I headed off to Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA for the 42nd annual Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) Mitty Day (aka The Mitty). The weather was beautiful, unlike it had been for months on end. Couldn't have asked for better weather. This was going to be my first time at this event, Henry had been approximately 20 years ago. It will most definitely not my last. The variety of cars racing, the staff, and the venue all were beyond expectation.


When we arrived we used the little kiosk/tollbooth to pay our admission and find a place to park. Grabbed our snack bags and cooler from the car. Yes, you carry in with you. Then a short walk...

Fiddlers Cove, Tamassee, SC

Wed, Apr 10th 2019 10:46 am by Gwen Fowler Market Report

April means Spring in the foothills,  the lakes are coming to life with flowers, and trees in bloom. We love this time of year. One of my favorite lake communities is Fiddlers Cove. While the dam is being repaired, now is a great time to build your seawall and dock on this beautiful wooded lot with a creek along one side and lake in the front. Mountain Views, sunset views and a very private setting among the 50-100-year-old trees. This lake makes a great getaway close to Clemson, Greenville, shopping, and events. Just 2 hours from Atlanta, 1 from Greenville,  if you don't want to spend a fortune on your 2nd home or retirement place.

The Dart Hit Lakemont

Sun, Mar 31st 2019 11:42 am by Gwen Fowler Gwen

Each month we throw the dart and go to the spot it hits.  This month the dart hole was bigger than the place we were going to.  Lakemont Ga is a tiny stop in the road just off 441.  There are 5 old storefronts, all but one were closed on Saturday.  Makes you wonder when they are open.

We made our way to The Open Door at Alley's Ol' store.  Quite a mouthful.  Were we surprised?  Quaint, charming and well worth the drive.  We left 441 just below the end of Clayton city proper and went over a winding road to Old 441 South.  The storefront was the first thing we saw when we stopped at the stop sign.  Did I mention charm & quaint?  This is the picture in the dictionary for each of those words...

Put out your Feeders -- Hummingbird Season is here!!

Mon, Mar 25th 2019 10:57 am by Gwen Fowler Gwen

355 Big Oak Trail Hummingbirds

March 23rd is the beginning of hummingbird season this year.   I think that sounds early, but the articles I am reading says the scouts will be in the area this week. If your feeders are not out, they will skip right over you and head on to where they can find food and nectar.   Hummingbird food is a mix of  1 part sugar to 4 parts water.  NO RED food coloring.  Make sure your feeder is red and that is all that is required.  The mix will need to be changed out every other day to prevent it from fermenting and making the birds sick.

My friends Allan & Judy who live at Mountain Rest have their property for sale, but they also have a lot of hummingbirds in one place.  Judy fills the feede...
