Our May Member of the Month is Jim Barnes, Barnes Risk Management Group.

At BRMG we strive to help our clients, be they individuals or businesses, keep a firm grip on their assets and identify the risks that can compromise their ability to financially weather a potentially catastrophic event.
Once we identify the risks, and understand the assets AT risk, we help develop a strategy to insure our clients are protected.  The solutions may be to avoid the potential of disaster by simply changing the way they conduct their business or activities.  We may suggest that they transfer the risk to a third party (insure against it).
Each situation may have its own, unique, solution and we do our best to find out what it is!

Uncertainty is a business killer. To be successful, companies must plan expenses and know that vital business systems will work as needed. Taking a reactive approach to maintaining your IT networks is simply too costly in too many ways: lost productivity, dissatisfied customers and enormous repair costs. Our managed IT services are the smart, cost-effective alternative.
Our Proactive Approach Improves
Your Productivity
With our managed IT services, you’ll enjoy the benefit of a full team of IT specialists keeping your systems in excellent working order. For a small, fixed monthly fee, we monitor your systems 24/7, apply patches, ensure backups, keep viruses at bay, and perform a host of other proactive measures. Little problems don’t become big – and expensive – and in most instances, you won’t even know there was ever an issue.
Total IT Care
Our managed IT services will:
  • Maintain 24/7 watch over your entire IT environment
  • Identify and analyze server “events” for potential problems
  • Remediate processes or services that fail
  • Ensure security patches, service packs and anti-virus protocols are up to date
  • Ensure that data backups are complete

I’m passionate about my North Fulton (Alpharetta, Milton, Johns Creek, Roswell) and South Forsyth County, Georgia community. Our northern suburbs of Atlanta are rich in cultural diversity and attract families and individuals due to the large number of technology companies in the area.

Having worked for several tech start-ups before beginning my real estate career, I’m skilled at working with individuals and families at all stages of life who value excellent service, quick response times and effective negotiation skills. I have lived in the northern suburbs of Johns Creek and Alpharetta for over 25 years and my clients appreciate my depth of knowledge of local schools, neighborhoods and market conditions.

Consider me your one stop shop for your real estate needs in the northern suburbs of Atlanta. References available by request or available on my website:, by searching for me on or calling me, 404-784-6970.

Our February Member of the Month is Peggy Burke, PrivatePlus Mortgage.



Peggy Burke is a Vice President and Mortgage Banker with PrivatePlus Mortgage. She is a top producer who has more than a decade of mortgage expertise. Peggy is an advocate of mortgage pre-approval; that is, for home buyers to not only get pre-qualified, but also pre-approved for the appropriate amount prior to commencing the search for a home purchase. “Pre-approval helps ensure a good mortgage experience, and puts you at an advantage in this purchasers’ marketplace,” she says.

“Peggy prides herself on expertly communicating with her clients,” says Dan Smith, President of PrivatePlus. “Her clients appreciate knowing what to expect, knowing their options and knowing where they stand throughout the process. In turn, both homeowners seeking mortgages and third-party referral sources like Realtors have rewarded Peggy with their repeat business and referrals.”

PrivatePlus Mortgage promises great pricing, processes, people and products, including purchase, refinance, investment, jumbo products, second home, construction, fixed second, home equity, lot loan and more. Based in Buckhead, PrivatePlus originates mortgages in 50 states and the District of Columbia. In the Atlanta market, PrivatePlus is affiliated with Private Bank of Buckhead and Private Bank of Decatur, which also are divisions of National Bank of Commerce.

Away from work, Peggy enjoys playing golf and tennis, and is a gourmet cook. She and her husband reside in Roswell, and have three beautiful grandchildren who all live in the Atlanta area.
