Meet Scott Johnson:
The Man who makes Moving Fun for You!
Scott Johnson
Known for helping sellers get their home picture perfect, Scott and his team also coordinate moving services and get rid of those three “miscellaneous stuff”
boxes you’ve been meaning to go through for the last couple of months (or years). 
Happiest when he’s working with clients, he’s currently accepting new clientele! Make sure you keep calm and call Scott!
Your Move Simplified



Scott, a Beaufort, SC native and University of South Carolina graduate, is the go-to person for making your move simplified (literally and figuratively). After 15 years working as an insurance agent, three years ago Scott decided to take some time to figure out where his passion lay and what he was truly great at. He bought a house in the area (thanks to our very own Dawn Landau), and considered how much of a neat-nick he is; thus he decided to turn his organizational skills into a business: Your Move Simplified.
While his family calls him
Mr. Schedule, Scott believes everything really does have a place and that once it’s found it, things are simpler–sometimes you just need a little help, but that’s why
Your Move Simplified is here. Having a prompt and professional team around you during a stressful time is essential and Scott not only knows this, but also possesses the great quality and skill of helping his clients to remain calm during these times!

Atlanta’s Zoning Code: it’s Clean Up Time!
Atlanta Zoning  

“If we’re going to grow,” the Commissioner said, “we’re going to have to develop in a way that more people can walk… A lot of this zoning in the 1960’s and 70’s imagined a future where everything would be monolithic and huge, and we would drive everywhere.”  Planners say that a new code will be easier to interpret with simpler, more unified definitions and graphical illustrations to better explain regulations – and if passed, the new rules could have tremendous effects.
