Lauren Baier Kim of the Wall Street Journal contacted full time, professional White County Realtor, Harriet Carter -of North Georgia Mountain Realty in Sautee-Nacoochee, Georgia, after researching North Georgia Mountain real estate websites - and determined that Carter and her site GetGeorgiaMtns.com - had valuable content about North Georgia real estate- in addition to Carter's outstanding credentials as a real estate professional and marketing expert.

"The real-estate market is generally steady, Ms. Carter was quoted as saying.. The locale has been slow to develop and hasn't attracted real-estate speculators, she says. People who buy in Helen generally purchase for the long term, she says. The median home price is $225,000, which could purchase a three-bedroom, two-bath house Prices have risen 8% from a year ago, she estimates. Rents for vacation homes start at $150 a night and rise to $1,200 a night for a large property on a lake or on the river, she says." North Georgia Mountain Real Estate
