Meet the Team

The Hometown Realtors Team has been assisting Home Buyers and Sellers since 1989, closing over 5000 homes in their careers. These decades of experience, knowledge and “white-glove” client service stand out when guiding their buyers and sellers through the entire real estate transaction. WHO ARE THEY? They are a Boutique Team with a shared culture of providing an extraordinary customer experience from the first meeting to the closing table and beyond.

Just as a medical specialist would confer with a team of other doctors for the best care plan for their patient, the Hometown Realtors Team gives each client the knowledge, creativity and expertise of the entire team. They are Social Media dominant and create an unsurpassed on-line presence, as more than 90% of buyers are looking solely on the internet. They specialize in Buyer and Seller Peace of Mind. Client’s needs and concerns are their #1 Priority. They are experienced negotiators and tenaciously protect their client’s interest as if they were family. They are a highly skilled team who also has a Heart for your community.

They are dedicated to promoting positive community and economic growth in their neighborhoods and are avid volunteers in the communities that inspire them daily. They believe in LAGNIAPPE (lan-yap) – “A little something extra and unexpected” for every client and real estate transaction. They are authentic. They are backed by Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Georgia Properties, one of the most successful Real Estate Companies in the Country, and Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., one of the most respected and admired companies in the World, with the resources to bring maximum exposure, quality and innovation to their agents.
