After remodeling multiple homes from 50 to 150 years old, Aaron loves to discuss the possibilities of each home and challenges his clients to see beyond the shag carpet, mustard-yellow shower, or stippled ceiling—how can you breathe new life into it and make your aesthetic come alive?! In his 17+ years in Athens as a student and professional, Aaron has become very familiar with the different neighborhoods and nearby communities and loves helping others find a place that truly feels like home.

Aaron graduated from UGA in Engineering in 2008, and worked for several years as an engineer as he completed graduate degrees from Duke University and Georgia Tech. In 2014, he moved into education as an engineering instructor and then he and his wife, Sara, became licensed as a Realtors in 2016. Crunching numbers and thinking analytically about the nuts and bolts of houses came naturally to Aaron, and in 2017 he was awarded the prestigious New Face of the Year award from the Athens Association of Realtors. Aaron and Sara continued to build their business and have reached the Circle of Achievement award every year since 2019.

Aaron and Sara currently live in the charming east Athens city of Winterville with their four children, flock of chickens and farm cat. They are active members of Redeemer Presbyterian Church and volunteer regularly for both church and community events. Aaron will never pass up an opportunity to have you over for a freshly-steamed latte, try out a new cocktail recipe, or join him for an all-night pig roast—hospitality is his passion and he treats his “soon-to-be-friend” clients in the same manner. Trust Aaron and Sara to give you the honest, devoted and professional attention you deserve!
