Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio: Big Canoe and City of Smyrna

Big CanoeAnita Michele is this week’s guest on the award-winning Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio show. Anita talks about the benefits of living in the North Georgia mountain community of Big Canoe, and her interview is followed by a discussion with Jennifer Bennett and Ken Suddreth of the City of Smyrna.

Anita Michele is the Vice President and CFO of Big Canoe Company.

Big Canoe, which currently sets on more than 8,000 acres, was originally started in the 1970s. As the south’s premier mountain community, visitors will find everything from full-time homes to vacation homes, and of course, plenty of natural and manmade amenities. For buyers looking for a year-round or vacation home, there are plenty of different neighborhoods with different styles and sizes of homes. When it comes to amenities, residents enjoy eight mountains, walking trails, a golf course, swimming pool complexes, tennis courts, an indoor fitness center, volleyball courts, a pickleball court and much more. In the surrounding area, you will also find Amicalola Falls, the Dawson Wildlife Management Area, 16 state parks, the North Georgia Outlet Mall and Gibbs Garden.

In addition to plenty of amenities, homebuyers in this community will find large estate homes with three-sides brick exteriors, side-entry garages and master on the main plans priced from the $300,000s to $500,000s.

City of SmyrnaOur next guests are Jennifer Bennett who is the community relations director and Ken Suddreth who is the director of community development with the City of Smyrna.

The City of Smyrna, which is situated at I-285 and I-75 in the Cumberland Mall area, was incorporated into Cobb County in 1872. Today, it serves as a model for other cities looking to redevelop thanks to its innovative redevelopment in the late 1980s. Homebuyers looking for a great place to live in the metro area love the city for its small town charm with big city amenities located conveniently nearby. Families also love the many community events including Food Truck Tuesdays and the hometown birthday celebration, as well as the local schools, many of which are ranked nationally.
