Traci Wells : Selling Effingham County Properties

Traci Wells

Selling Effingham County Properties

Traci Wells has enjoyed great success as a Realtor for over 15 years.  Therefore, it is no coincidence that when Traci made the decision five years ago to join a local firm with global exposure, she joined Cora Bett Thomas Realty.

     As a result of this successful partnership, Traci has been able to make a difference in the lives of her clients in Chatham, Bryan, Bulloch, Effingham and surrounding counties. Interestingly, a real source of pride for Traci is the company’s relocation and referral department.  She mentions, “We have a phenomenal relocation department.  We are contacted by potential clients from different parts of the world as well.”

     More importantly, when Traci meets with clients she is actively listening to their vision along with their needs and desires for their new home.  This intuitive approach, coupled with Traci’s vast experience, is the formula for success for her clients in finding and purchasing the house they will call home.

    Whether it is a couple purchasing their first home or a client who is selling their home to move on to a different chapter in their life, Traci is enthusiastic and passionate about her work.  Helping clients fulfill their dream remains the most rewarding aspect of her career and the biggest reason Traci continues to love what she does, each and every day.

     Traci and her husband, Andy, are natives of Bryan County and now reside in Effingham. However, banking was Traci’s initial profession, though real estate proved to be a better fit.  This financial experience compliments her real estate career.  Success in both of these complex fields require great attention to detail and an ability to understand and communicate with people from all walks of life.  Traci possesses that unique ability.

     She remarked, “Banking is a great background to have!  Once I entered into the world of real estate, I was intrigued as to “how and why” these processes work.  I have always wanted to know the nuts and bolts of everything”.   With Andy’s background as an independent construction contractor, this proved to be Traci’s greatest motivator and encourager as she began to move towards a career in real estate.  “He taught me the new construction background.  Working with and learning from Andy has proved to be invaluable.”

     Traci considers it a privilege to be a part of Cora Bett Thomas Realty, who has set an unparalleled standard in the local market.  Notably, Cora Bett Thomas Realty is not a franchise, but is indeed “globally networked just like a franchise.”  The benefits include a higher degree of capitalization on meeting customers’ needs and industry demands, as well as allowing the company to have a complete customer focus and client goal-orientation.

     She explains that though the company has an inception date of 1995, Cora Bett has been in real estate industry for much longer.  Cora Bett is an expert in the ins-and-outs of real estate, enabling her to develop and maintain an exclusive brand.   Cora Bett Thomas Realty is renowned for the firm’s downtown Savannah presence.  The addition of Traci to the office allows for the opportunity to respond to the market growth demands occurring on the outskirts of Savannah.  Traci is thrilled to be able to focus on the outlying counties.   She remains confident that the company can accommodate her clients’ needs while offering an unparalleled level of service.

     Traci is thankful to be a part of such a professional and supportive team.  She asserts, “we all support each other; we work hand-in-hand together.  The company provides us with all the necessary and most up-to-date tools to get our jobs done – and done well.”

     More importantly, the market is still climbing out of the slump caused by the 2008 crash, Traci feels that the market is on a course of steady incline.  She explains, “you do not want a rapid incline; you want a steady incline – that is what makes the economy turn.”  Furthermore, Traci is pleased with the course set by Cora Betty Thomas Realty.  She adds, “I feel that the company is going in the right direction for what the market and economy allow.”

     As a Realtor, Traci has many accomplishments.  She is a member of the Savannah Board of Realtors, the Georgia Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, and has served on the Community Housing Committee for Pembroke for quite some time.  She was also named Cora Bett Thomas Realty’s 2016 Agent of the Year.   She does feel that working with an outstanding team of professionals and a company of unparalleled service while being able to fulfill dreams is her greatest success.

     In addition to her Realtor status, Traci has her Council of Residential Specialist (CRS) designation.  To obtain a CRS status, “Realtors must meet a number of stringent requirements that combine advanced hours of education and training, experience and demonstrated success in the marketplace.”  This certifies that the individual “has completed advanced professional training and demonstrated outstanding professional achievement in residential real estate.”  This small community of distinguished agents are among the top three percent of all Realtors in the United States.  Traci takes pride in her CRS designation, as it is an accolade that she takes tremendous pride in and feels it sets her apart from others in the industry.

     In her spare time, Traci enjoys spending time with her family and traveling with her husband.  They are both NASCAR enthusiasts, traveling to races whenever possible.

     Over the span of her career,Traci has employed many different methods of selling and marketing, learned endless new regulations, and scouted new markets.  She and Cora Bett Thomas Realty have set new standards as they continually strive for excellence in an ever-changing real estate world, filled with endless possibilities.

Wiley’s Home Center

Business as Usual at Wiley’s Home Center

Effingham County is experiencing more new construction now than we have seen since 2008. The market is good.  And, the change in the market is a blessing to many.

     As the real estate market affects many businesses in our community, it has a major effect on the furniture business.  New houses are sure to equal new furniture, and the people of Wiley’s have seen the impact.

     Although Wiley’s has been a well-known name in our community for over 31 years, the amount of new clientele has increased dramatically over the last several months. “New people are walking in our store daily and being pleasantly surprised at the selection and quality we have to offer,” Says Detra Thomas, CEO of Wiley’s Home Center.

     Wiley’s is experiencing a more frequent turnover of inventory due to the residential growth. Detra adds, “You can walk in our showroom on a weekly basis and see something different.  We are constantly getting in new shipments and changing our displays.”

      “We are happy to welcome the new people into our community. It is very refreshing to see new faces walking through our doors, but just as equally rewarding to grab a hug or a kiss from those who have been loyal to us for many years.  We are all a big happy family,” adds Detra.

     And, family is important to this local business. It has been family owned and operated since inception. In April 1987, Wiley and Rosalyn Thomas opened the doors and welcomed the people of Effingham County and nearby communities in. Their daughter, Detra, joined a year later.

      When you walk in the door at Wiley’s, you immediately see a vast display of furnishings.  Most furnishing are set in a “room” atmosphere, giving you an idea of what it will look like in your home.

     Don’t forget about the 35,000 square foot warehouse, full of additional inventory. Wiley’s carries over 150 brands of furniture, appliances, bedding and floor coverings, there is something for every taste.

      When you come to Wiley’s you are always greeted with a friendly, smiling face. “We often hear customers say that there is not a store like this anywhere in the area that carries the quality of furniture for the price,” Detra states. “Our goal is to provide excellent customer service and same day delivery.”

     So, if you are looking for quality furniture at a reputable store, look no further. Wiley’s Home Center is the expert at “Helping to Make Your House a Home.”

New Life…New Owner

Dawn Usher Takes The Reigns at New Life Flowers and Gifts

 It’s been business as usual at New Life Flowers and Gifts.  Not many people would even recognize any changes at all. But…there has been a big change…Stephanie Long has sold the business to long-time employee, Dawn Usher.

      “Dawn was the very first full-time employee I ever hired. She had been with me, off and on, for the past 28 years. She and I have seen a lot of changes together, and I am happy to see her moving forward with the business. The reigns are now in her hands and I wish her the very best,” states Stephanie.

      Dawn started in this industry in May of 1979 at Flowers-n-Things in Rincon.  They are no longer in business.  With a total of 39 years in the industry, her talent in floral design has just continued to grow.

      “This has been a life-long dream.  I have always wanted to own my own flower shop,” Dawn says.

      For the past several years, Stephanie has thought of selling the shop.  But, as they say, timing is everything.  So, when she was ready, she approached Dawn with her idea.

      “I had no idea if I could pull it off, but I asked her to give me a number. We were able to work it out, and here I am,” says Dawn of her recent purchase.

      The actual change of ownership happened on January 1 of this year.  Yes, it has been four months now, and the shop is running full steam ahead.  “We have been extremely busy since the change, work has been very steady,” adds Dawn.

      Dawn wants all her customers to know that New Life Flowers and Gifts still offers the same great products and services as always. Fresh flowers bring new life and energy to any space. So, always think of them when it’s time for a new arrangement for any occasion.

      New Life Flowers and Gifts is not just a florist.  It is a gift shop stocking all the latest and best gift items, and they carry unique items to decorate any room in your home.

      Dawn is proud to carry on the tradition of New Life…being the florist and gift shop that makes the ordinary, extraordinary.

     So, stop by and congratulate Dawn on her new venture.  She and her staff will continue to give you the “little extra” that helps set them apart.

     “When we had our awards banquet, I was in shock.  I had no idea I was ranked number three in the state.  I just don’t keep up with that sort of thing.  It’s not about the number of houses, it’s about the people you help along the way,” stated Sue of her recent accomplishments.

     “She’s an amazing Realtor and person” says Carmen Cribbs, Broker for Coldwell Banker Intercoastal Realty. “She is one of the most modest and kind people that you will ever meet.

DiAnna Jenkins and Kimberly Stalnaker

DiAnna Jenkins and Kimberly Stalnaker make up a dynamic real estate team. These ladies are both licensed with Coldwell Banker Intercoastal Realty in Rincon.

     They are only a “team” in the name of real estate, but they don’t call themselves a team. They are equal partners. And, this partnership gives their clients a phenomenal “two for one” deal.

     Recently, these ladies have become affiliates with the “Homes For Heroes” program. Homes for Heroes’ mission is to provide savings to heroes who provide services to our nation and its communities. Heroes include: firefighters, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare workers, EMS and teachers. Participating sellers receive reduced listing commissions and participating buyers will receive a check about two weeks after their closing in appreciation for their service. The amount of reward is based on the sales price of the home.

     Both Kim and DiAnna are very excited about their new affiliation with this program. “It is a wonderful way for us to serve our community. We have helped so many military families and law enforcement find their dream homes. Now, we can do this as a way of giving back to those who serve us,” states DiAnna.

     “My dad was a proud veteran. He served in both the Marines and the Army. In this last election, my father had me get him an absentee ballot, so he could fill it out from his death bed. He felt it was that important to vote,” says Kim, “He died five days before the presidential election, but his vote was in.”

     Kim and DiAnna both live in Effingham County. They have both been licensed since 2003. DiAnna states, we are licensed to sell all over the state, but Effingham is the area we love.”

     These ladies start every day with prayer together. They pray for their buyers and sellers, and for their families and friends. Kim says, “We feel this is important to us. It is first and foremost that we give thanks to God for our business.”

     If you are looking to buy or sell, give this team…no…give this partnership a call. From backroads to beaches, and everywhere in between, DiAnna and Kim will get you home!

Omelette Cafe

Omelette Cafe

     Many people think the Omelette Café is a breakfast location only. But, their menu far exceeds that of any breakfast menu around. The other Omelette Café Restaurants in the area are open from 6AM-3PM for breakfast and lunch.  The Rincon location is the only location open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Their extensive lunch and dinner menu gives you many delicious choices…. from burgers to chicken fingers to seafood’s and specialty salads.

Edel Caregiver Institute

Edel Caregiver Institute:

Helping caregivers so they can better help their loved ones

Hospice Savannah is a program for the terminally ill which includes services for care and support of patients at home, in a nursing home or assisted living facility or in Hospice House. Usually abstaining from extraordinary measures to lengthen life, they focus on pain and symptom control and emotional support for the loved ones.

     Hospice Savannah concentrates on the patient and their loved ones; The Edel Caregiver Institute concentrates on the caregiver.

     Caring for a loved one with any type of illness or disorder is not planned and many times the caregiver is at a loss for what they need to do. Caregivers can be friends, relatives, in-laws, spouses – anyone who provides assistance to another, in whatever capacity and whatever their relationship, with no financial benefits. The Edel Caregiver Institute offers support for non-paid, non-professional family caregivers. Again, its primary focus is the caregiver, not the care recipient. The care recipient is rarely hospice patient. It is usually someone who has been diagnosed with a long-term chronic illness such as Congestive Heart Failure, Dementia, Pulmonary Disease, etc.

     The Edel Caregiver Institute opened its doors a year ago, with a vision of helping families. In fact, the Institute has helped over 300 families to date.  With a-state-of-the -art facility nestled off Chatham Parkway, they offer an array of classes and programs for caregivers.  Within their skills lab, they provide hands-on training with medical equipment from oxygen tanks to Hoyer lifts.  The skills lab is able to assist 12-15 people per class and can be disease- specific. Basic nursing skills are also taught to caregivers.

     Taking care of a loved one stricken with disease or a disorder, such as Autism, can take an emotional and physical toll on the one providing the care. The Edel Caregiver Institute delivers wellness for the caregiver, including nutrition education and exercise. It also offers help with navigating the medical world through the assistance of eight retired physicians on hand who are available to go with patients and caregivers to doctor appointments to communicate information. Dementia coaches are also available. They are placed in the homes to help with problem solving and offer hands on help.

     The Edel Caregiver Institute is a not for profit organization that relies on funding from the United Way, donations and fundraisers. All services offered by Edel are free of charge. Please see the website for complete information regarding all the classes and support offered.

Ear, Nose and Throat Associates of Savannah

Ear, Nose and Throat Associates of Savannah

Celebrating four decades of treating patients in the Coastal Area

For the past forty years, when patients in the Coastal Empire have experienced any type of head and neck disorders, they usually found their way to offices of ENT Associates of Savannah.

     Since starting the practice four decades ago, Dr. Michael Zoller and his colleagues have seen many technological advancements in the medical field, but one thing remains constant with him and his staff: a dedication to giving the best possible care to every patient that comes into their offices.

     In addition to their Rincon office, they have locations in  Pooler, Statesboro, Bluffton and Richmond Hill, an ENT Surgical Center located on the Armstrong campuses as well as their main office in Savannah.

     Dr. Zoller recently reflected on the enormous growth of his practice over the years. “Having trained in Boston, I started in 1977 in Savannah. Seven years later I was joined by Dr. Fred Daniel, who trained in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Twenty-two years ago, Dr. Stephen Rashleigh joined the practice, having trained in Chicago, and Dr. William Moretz III joined us  ten years ago after being trained in Augusta. Dr. Brad Rawlings joined six years after his training in Norfolk, Virginia. Our most recent addition, Dr. Diane Davis, was in practice for over thirty years in Dublin, Georgia before joining ENT Associates two years ago,” says Dr. Zoller.

    “We’ve had to add those physicians as well as our physician’s assistant, Michelle Yamada, in order to handle the volume of patients at the various satellite offices,” he says. “In fact, we’ve been in Effingham County and Richmond Hill for about twenty-five years. We initially had our office in the Effingham Hospital, but we later moved to Rincon in order to serve our clients who didn’t want to drive in to town for their appointments. I also see quite a few of our Effingham patients in our Pooler office,”  he adds.

     In addition to the physicians, ENT Associates of Savannah has five doctors of audiology on staff who are experts in the newest hearing aid technology.  The Audiology Department works both independently and in conjunction with the physicians to provide a wide range of hearing services, both diagnostic and rehabilitative. Additionally, there is an allergy clinic for  testing and treatment. For over two decades now, residents in Effingham County can now benefit from the services that ENT Associates have been offering to Savannah residents for forty years.

     “The population in Rincon grew so much that we eventually made the decision to move there. Now we have one of our senior partners, Dr. Stephen Rashleigh, M.D., who is at the Rincon office one day a week. He stays extremely busy,” says Dr. Zoller with a smile. Dr. Rashleigh adds, “We’ve been going to Effingham for over twenty years, and it’s been a mutually beneficial relationship. There’s definitely a need for our services, since many of our patients don’t care to drive into Savannah.”

     Dr. Zoller adds, “It’s really nice to be part of the Effingham community. Many of our patients who have moved to Effingham County from Savannah can now receive the same top notch service from our satellite office in Rincon.”

   Founded in 1977, ENT Associates of Savannah has been proud to provide the residents of Georgia and the low country of South Carolina with outstanding ENT care, and they are looking forward to another successful forty years.
