Aaron has significant experience in planning and urban design, including with the City of Atlanta. He's also worked on the Master Plan for Morningside-Lenox Park. He's familiar with our area, and we are glad to have his expertise in representing our interests to the BeltLine.

What’s the market like for home sales in Piedmont Heights?

The truth is, like each of us, every home is unique and special. Blanket statements can be misleading. But here is a success story of homeowners on Rockridge Place that can help paint a picture.

This dynamic couple, Jen and Dave (above left), asked for my help in selling their home that listed in July. In three days, we had 22 showings, multiple offers, and are currently under contract with a backup offer. Now they can focus on their next life adventure!

But the work started much earlier – evaluating the strengths of the home, analyzing data of similar home sales, developing a tailored marketing plan, staging the interior, securing professional photography, and finally deciding the right date to debut the listing.

In this dynamic market, every home needs a specialized plan to ensure that the homeowner’s goals are met. If you want to know more about how an experienced advisor can help you achieve your dreams, give me a call or drop a note.
