Whenever we think of October, we think of pumpkin patches and corn mazes. The sweet scent of being outdoors and the embrace of all things cinnamon make us swoon. As we run downhill for the rest of the year, we soak up these fall days with such thankful hearts for WHERE we live (We love you, Atlanta) and WHAT we do. Being in the real estate business means that we get the opportunity to provide a home to others. We get the privilege of seeing new couples fall in love with their dream home, and older couples walk through seasons of life either downsizing, or upsizing to fit those grand babies. Seeing people make the biggest investment of their lives and getting to journey with them is such an honor, and as the seasons change, so do we. We change to get better, more intentional systems to serve our people better. We change to increase our influence and grow our business by providing the best and most educated advise you can get. We change and grow and shatter glass ceilings because you, Atlanta, are worth it.
So, in honor of our most favorite season, here is a list of Pumpkin Patches and Corn Mazes near Atlanta that you should take some time out this weekend to enjoy while you can!
