We have built a team of talented individuals, and our success is a reflection of the competent, caring and dedicated group of people that make up Atlanta Communities. Our administrative support staff is topnotch and is invested in the concierge culture of the company. All deal-related paperwork, such as exclusive agreements, listing entries and processing contracts and closings are prepared by the administrative team, thus freeing the agents to do what they do best: to be in front of clients. In real estate, agents succeed only when they are presenting or receiving an offer, showing a client, or taking a listing.

We consider real estate a team endeavor. Only at Atlanta Communities do agents have open door access to managers for contract issues, marketing ideas, and business planning.

We know that the right guidance can make all the difference in your career.
