It’s what people care about when selling a home: knowing the market, knowing the compelling features of their personal home and knowing how to talk about these features persuasively.

You see, marketing is in my DNA. I grew up with it. My father owned a well-respected marketing research and consulting firm in Atlanta and provided advise to companies like Exxon, Texas Instruments, Georgia Power, Ritz Carlton, and McKee Baking (makers of Little Debbie). I negotiated eating a lot of Nutty Buddy bars.

Voted Best Real Estate Agent in Athens Banner-Herald’s Reader Polls for 2015, 2016 & 2017 and as co-owner of both bob (SALON) and Republic Salon, I have more than twenty-five years of business experience in client services, quality assurance, and project management.

Charming, upgraded cottage in west Athens! Don’t miss this exceptionally well-constructed and maintained home only a mile to Athens Country Club, two miles to Normaltown, three miles to Downtown, and less than two miles to Terrapin or the new, under-construction Publix shopping center at Oak Grove. Putters is a planned unit development with sidewalks, a clubhouse with gym, putting green, and designated guest parking. The kitchen has recently been upgraded to quartz countertops, modern flooring and backsplash, with new interior paint. With all three bedrooms upstairs, the living space is substantially sized including an eat-in kitchen, half bathroom, pantry, plenty of storage and natural light. Upstairs you’ll find an en-suite primary bedroom with a designated space for an office, extra closet, or dressing area with easy access to attic storage. The hallway, jack and jill bathroom has two sinks and each bedroom has a sizable closet. The backyard is recently sodded, privacy-fenced and overlooking non-buildable HOA space. Across from the neighborhood is one of the best-kept-secrets for ice cream and groceries. Competitively priced in an area that never goes out of style, 152 Putters Drive is the full package. $343,000 Active

This custom contemporary of your dreams won't disappoint: from the soaring fireplace to the wall of windows overlooking an expansive deck, you'll fall in love with the architecture at first sight. A timeless entryway leads you to an open living space surrounding the double sided fireplace—spacious living room, sophisticated dining area, private screened porch, updated kitchen, and causal nook on the other side of the fireplace. While an elegant layout for entertaining and dinner parties, the main floor also presents private and casual spaces for reading or watching tv. The kitchen is fully modernized and the perfect perch to chat with friends at the island or watch kids playing in the next room. The laundry room with sink and updated half bath are exactly where you want them to be—off the garage side of the home for an effortless daily entry with groceries or muddy dogs. The primary bedroom is tucked away on the main floor with a renovated bathroom and substantially sized closet. Up the modern staircase you'll find fresh carpet, two bedrooms and a full bathroom on one side of the home complete with an open catwalk to a fourth bedroom, office, or bonus/flex space. The basement has been recently upgraded with LVP, new walls, and paint—perfect for a gym or teen hang out, with glass sliding doors to both concrete and paver patios and decades of plantings just about to emerge this spring. With this being only the second owners and an unbelievably central location, I doubt this opportunity will present itself again in the next 30 years. 556,000 Closed

Calling all equestrians: unbelievable opportunity to own your dream horse farm in award winning and highly coveted North Oconee school district. This gorgeous 9.9 acre tract gently rolls down to a pond, where you can watch the sun rise on the other side. Three pastures with high end fencing, weatherproofed spigots, two outdoor wash stalls, and a professionally graded regulation sized arena with clay foundation, will make keeping the horses happy a breeze. The two main fenced pastures have a wide clearing between them, perfect for a new driveway to a potential home site overlooking the pond and near the bored well. The current driveway winds you carefully around the perimeter of the property to an adorable 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage set near shade trees and facing the stocked pond and its gazebo, ideal for fishing. You could easily move right in while building your forever home or barndominium and later use the cottage as guest, office space, or an in-law suite. (For buyers with their own architectural plans, builders are able to fit you in this year!) There are also two sheds on the property—one is open for larger farm equipment and the other has electric and a roll door for use as a workshop or extra storage. Only a mile to North Oconee High School and Rocky Branch Elementary, three miles to Lane Creek Golf, and seven miles to both Epps Bridge Center and downtown Watkinsville, there is currently nothing on the market this unique. Gallop, don't trot! 500,000 sold

Perfect renovation project on a sleepy side street walkable to Five Points, Barrow Elementary and Sanford Stadium!  Sited on a multi-tiered quarter acre lot, this home is primed for building outwards with a walk-out pool or up in to the fully staired attic (accessible from a bedroom,) or both. The granite cottage sits off the street on a hill affording plenty of privacy and features original hardwoods and doors with glass knobs. Design your dream home in the part of Athens that never goes out of style. 375,000 sold

Metal + Petal designed stunner in ever-popular Homewood Hills! This was the very first home built on Clifton Drive and has been lovingly cared for by one family since 1964. New interior finishes modernize this timeless, traditional layout: brand new gleaming hardwoods, shaker-style kitchen cabinet fronts, quartz countertops in kitchen and bathrooms, stainless kitchen appliances, stylish light fixtures and ceiling fans, door and window hardware, interior and exterior paint, roof, and hydronic heating system. Two potential locations for the master suite—one on the main and the other upstairs—make this a multi-generational family possibility. A classic staircase and foyer greet you at the front door. To your right, a large family room complete with fireplace and built-in bookshelf. To your left, what was once a formal living room is now a multi-functional space, which leads to the dining room with original china cabinet built-ins and swing doors to the updated kitchen. Through the eat-in kitchen, you'll find a vast storage area with custom cabinetry, laundry room, and the first master suite. Upstairs you'll find spacious bedrooms, a hallway full bath, a closet with a laundry chute, the second master suite, and a smaller, airy room that has been used as a nursery, office, and roomy storage area. Given the Normaltown location without the price tag and the privacy and peacefulness this neighborhood offers, you'll also want to stay for half a century. 358,000 Closed
