Realtor, Dorsey Alston Realtors
THE STORY: I was born in Decatur, and my family moved to Cobb shortly thereafter. I attended Georgia Southern University. After college, I went to work for my father’s business, which included real estate investments. I gained confidence and inspiration from working for him and aspired all the while to be as successful as he was. Therefore, I started a small office furniture, space planning, and project management business. My clients consisted of Fortune 100 companies, Atlanta hospitals, and private medical offices. As my business grew, my tireless work ethic and dedication to deliver the best service became evident to my clients and colleagues.
Eventually, I made the decision to put my career on hold to start a family. I was a stay-at-home mom for 17 years to four amazing children. As my children got older, I made the decision to re-invent my career and myself. In 2010, I got my real estate license, joined Dorsey Alston and never looked back. My first full year in real estate, the Atlanta Realtors Association recognized me as “Rookie Of The Year.” Since becoming a realtor, I have been a Top Producer with the Atlanta Realtors Association. In 2019, I was the #3 agent in sales volume company-wide at Dorsey Alston.
WHY I CHOSE TO WORK IN COBB: Dorsey Alston opened the East Cobb office in 2014. The transition from the Buckhead office to Cobb County was a natural progression for me in 2016. I have come to really appreciate all the Cobb community has to offer. It feels like a big city with the abundance of shopping and dining, but in reality is a small community. Cobb is a great place to live and work. Since the pandemic, I have been working from home. I truly miss going into the office and seeing all my fellow East Cobb Agents.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB? I am passionate about working with people and maintaining lifelong relationships. Helping my clients navigate the home buying or selling process seamlessly is important to me. Success is not about the price of the home, but rather, understanding the current market and helping my clients achieve their real estate goals through my market knowledge and strong negotiation skills. What I also love about the real estate business is that every day is different, each transaction is unique, and there’s always a new opportunity.
LEISURE TIME: I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, cooking, traveling, playing tennis, volunteering, and all things outdoors. My guilty pleasure is playing tennis and being a member of ALTA and USTA leagues.
BEST ADVICE: Believe in yourself, don’t be afraid to re-invent yourself, and always use a Realtor!
WHAT’S NEXT? Throughout my years in the real estate industry, I have seen a lot of change. 2020 has certainly reshaped the real estate culture. Virtual open houses, Facetime showings, video marketing, virtual sales meetings, and Zoom calls have become a part of our day-to-day business. I am looking forward to continuing to establish new relationships and growing my network in the Cobb community. Staying loyal to my clients and focusing on their goals always will be a priority. I believe in creating exceptional experiences in every market.
