It’s Raining Money at The Astoria Agent Event Celebration

To celebrate success in the real estate industry, The Astoria at The Aramore is hosting a luncheon for Atlanta real estate agents, where – yes, it will be raining money. At the event, $1,000 in cash give-a-ways will be given away every 15 minutes to lucky winners. This luxury Atlanta condominium community will also be donating money to the KW Cares organization.

“We have sold 10 homes in the past two weeks bringing The Astoria to nearly the 50-percent sold mark,” Pauline Miller, with Keller Williams BRIGHTSTAR, said. “This celebration is our way of saying thanks and giving back to all the agents who made this possible.”

The luncheon is on Tuesday, April 12th from noon to 3 p.m. at The Astoria, located at Peachtree Battle and Peachtree Hills in midtown. While previewing the penthouse model homes, guests can mingle with champagne and tasty treats from CamiCakes, a local Buckhead treat shop. Every 15 minutes, $100 will be given away and winners will be announced on Facebook and Twitter.

Additionally for every agent who attends, The Astoria will contribute $10 to KW Cares and will award a $500 donation in honor of the office that brings the most agents, so in total The Astoria will present around $2,500 to the much-appreciated KW Cares organization.

Tweet Up Showcased “Life on the Curve”

Last week I had an amazing time at the 1010 Midtown Cocktail Hour Tweet Up. The event was filled with social media savvy Atlanta professionals who were there to network, tour condos and sample tasty morsels from restaurants close to this Atlanta live, work, play community.

Peachtree epitomizes the sights and sounds of the city and the stretch through midtown is my favorite. I was reminded of this pulling up to the 1010 Midtown building. After checking in with the concierge, I walked to the elevator which transported me to the 21st floor and the luxury of the condos in this building.

The 21st floor of the Atlanta high-rise contains the decorated models, each showcasing a different Atlanta decor store. Several restaurants of the 12th & Midtown development were set up in the models and the aroma of different foods wafted into the hallway. Standing on the balcony of a beautifully decorated condo, noshing on eggplant crostini from Noon and gazing over Peachtree at dusk made me feel on top of the world. (more…)
