No Place I'd Rather Be:

There are so many different types of life events that lead to someone having to address their real estate needs: marriage, divorce, death, birth, empty nesting or college kids moving back in. The emotions involved in many of these transactions can be overwhelming. This is something I’ve  seen over the past 17 years of selling homes in metro Atlanta and it’s always a humbling experience when a client hugs you at the closing table with tears of joy. However, nothing has been as humbling as the most recent events of my life. This holiday season is special for our family because not only are we expecting our first child together, I also was able to legally adopt my stepson last month. Our journey has been unconventional from the start. We met on and have not looked back since. Having the opportunity to raise our family in South Fulton is something we cherish and keeps me connected to my roots. My parents met in high school and grew up in South Fulton. There are nothing but opportunities ahead for us all and the key to success will be family and community. I’ve committed to bringing excellence to South Fulton by partnering with the most respected name in real estate, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Together, we are creating opportunity and initiatives to serve a side of town that luxury brands are often reluctant to invest in. So, whether born here or adopted into this community, let's all be thankful this holiday season for all South Fulton has to offer. There is no other part of town I’d rather raise my family.
