Old Alphahomes site

Many thanks to the development team at Real Estate Webmasters, especially to Hannah Grant, Rebecca Czilok and to the project initiator Jeff Pady.

The original site was getting a bit tired looking. We retained all of the original content, added some new content and greatly enhanced the search features. The new site is now clean and power packed full of great content and features.

It is now as easy as can be to do searches for North Fulton Schools and Forsyth County Schools.  The district zone maps for North Fulton and Forsyth County are easy to find and up to date. 

You can do easy one click real estate searches for Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton and Cumming. If you want to do an advanced search that is available as well. Try the new map

(Click Image for More Information) [/caption] Last week, I got an up-close and personal look at how the market is exploding for sellers. I listed a house for sale late in the afternoon on Wednesday (you can see a photo of it in my blog for last week). Before the evening was over, I had two blind offers -- before the house was physically shown to anyone. Three more offers surfaced within hours. The house was sold, with a signed contract in hand, less than 24 hours after it was listed. Over the course of two days, I had over 40 phone calls from agents seeking homes for their clients and more calls from individuals looking for a new…

Old Milton High School BuildingMilton High School - The Old Location

The old Milton High School may be getting a new tenant -- if the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce and the City of Alpharetta can attract a 4-year private university to Alpharetta. The 52-acre campus is still owned by the Fulton County Board of Education, but the committee formed to investigate this option hopes to utilize the old high school campus. The committee formed by Alpharetta's Mayor (David Belle Isle), the Chamber of Commerce's Public Policy Director (Liz Hausmann) and developer Penn Hodge. The group hopes it will economically benefit the downtown area, will help Alpharetta to compete with similar cities that do have a 4-year institution of higher learning, and will help boost the local technology…

FAFSA information for Alpharetta Georgia High Schools and North Fulton County High Schools


Until recently, it was difficult to determine how many seniors applied for and completed their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Since this is an important step for many college-bound seniors, having access to the data can reflect the number of graduates who apply for college.
