Full Circle Real Estate Group: Athens Real Estate, Sustainable Real Estate

Briggs Carney


     My career in real estate began simply, with a love for Athens, an attraction to various architectural styles and an interest in preservation as well as historic homes. I've now been an Athenian for over two decades, which is hard to believe. I have spent nearly fifteen years as a full time, licensed Realtor in the residential and commercial real estate markets of Athens and its surrounding counties. Being actively involved in an ever changing real estate market for such a long time enables me to share invaluable insight with my clients. My goal for my client relationships is to apply this invaluable local knowledge with honesty, integrity and professionalism and in doing so find my clients the perfect property to serve their needs. My experience with real estate in and around Athens is well rounded. Working with residential Buyers and Sellers has always been rewarding and will always be a primary focus. For five years now I've worked closely with area banks and broadened my horizons in these relationships representing all sorts of properties, from finished multi family condo buildings to partially completed subdivisions, to undeveloped parcels of land. Commercial Real Estate became a focus in 2003 when my partners and I purchased over 60,000 sq' of an old cotton mill for an adaptive reuse project we are very proud of, converting the existing space, and reusing much of the existing structure to serve commercial office needs at the Chase Park Warehouses. Investment properties are a focus as well and my ability to recognize the right opportunity in the right neighborhood has ensured that my investment clients have had success and continue to work with me to build their portfolios.
     As a homeowner in the Boulevard Historic District, I've served on the Boulevard Neighborhood Association Steering Committee, actively participating in the preservation of one of Athens most attractive in town neighborhoods. Whether you need assistance marketing your property for sale, finding the home of your dreams, placing your business or investing in real estate, let me apply my passion and experience to help you meet your goals.

Hardwood Floors
Great In-Town Location

This property, 237 Hillside, is an excellent combination of what's typically hard to find this close to Historic Downtown Athens. The location here is excellent. Hillside is a quiet side street just blocks from Downtown. What's more, Hillside is sandwiched between two wonderful parks. East Athens Park is comprised of over 100 acres of walking and cycling trails and ball fields and Dudley Park includes the Athens Greenway, the North Oconee River and lots of greenspace. In addition to the comfortable location, 237 Hillside is recent new infill construction which, this close to downtown, is very much sought after. While much of the limited infill construction close to town has been student rental, 237 Hillside is a one owner home that has been entirely owner occupied, and you can tell. Upgrades have been made to appliances, paint, fencing, Berber carpet in the master and stairwell, and generally speaking there has been lots of TLC. Storage has been maximized, as has the use of space, and the 3 bedroom 2 full and one half bath floor plan flows nicely and will surprise with all that it has to offer. With a similar 2/1 selling just doors down recently for $161,000 our pricing displays reasonable expectations and a wonderful opportunity for the next owner to enjoy this great home. This well located, low maintenance, one owner home is a must see. Please be in touch with Briggs at 706-461-2677 with any questions.
