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.

Welcome to 8 Royal Oak Drive! With newer paint both inside and out, newer upstairs HVAC, and a roof only two years old, this immaculate craftsman is of the caliber you expect in Oak Grove. Built by Ashley Hill, the open floor plan allows for lots of natural light and easy entertaining. The kitchen has stainless appliances with a built in wall oven and microwave, quartz counter tops, tumbled marble backsplash, oversized sink, and a wine cooler. There's plenty of space to casually dine at the island or the dedicated dining room just off the kitchen. The primary bedroom is en suite on the main floor with separate shower and soaking tub, drop in sinks, and a spacious walk-in closet. Upstairs you'll find three sizable bedrooms, two with access to the upstairs porch, and one with direct access to the hallway bathroom. Off one of the bedrooms is a large double closet which leads to plenty of attic storage. The side yard is privacy fenced with gorgeous, established and easy to maintain seasonal plantings surrounding a patio. Only four miles from Normaltown, three miles to the loop, and five miles from downtown, Oak Grove is a lifestyle community with sidewalks, alleyways, two pools, tennis courts, walking and bike trails, a playground, and rentable clubhouse. The HOA also covers trash and lawn maintenance. 419,000 sold

Don't miss this brick ranch in Beechwood Hills, arguably one of the most convenient and sought after neighborhoods in Athens! Tucked away at the back of the neighborhood and across from the Middle Oconee River, 115 Harben Place sits on a large corner lot covered with gorgeous drought and heat tolerant native plantings. Last renovated in 2003, a wall was removed to create a large living room with a fireplace flanked by built ins and overlooking the screened porch and the backyard tree scape. The dining area and kitchen are to the right of the living room. The kitchen has stainless appliances, spanish tile flooring and, in keeping with the original charm of the home, an adorable garden window over the sink. Off the kitchen, there's a door to the two car garage, a sliding glass door to the deck, and the laundry room. The laundry room is spacious and has its own exterior door. To the left of the living room you'll find three bedrooms, one en suite with an updated shower, and a hallway bathroom. Also off the hallway is the entrance to the in-law suite, which could easily be used as rental income given its private driveway and exterior door at the side of the home. The in-law suite has a generous living space complete with a heatilator gas fireplace, a full kitchen, bedroom, and full bathroom. Beechwood Hills is right behind Beechwood shopping center with a movie theater, Fresh Market grocery store, TJ Maxx, restaurants, and clothing shops. With only two miles to the center of Five Points and less than three miles to Normaltown or downtown and UGA's north campus, you'll be hard pressed to find a more ideal location. 414,700 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
