Hello! Welcome to my blog. I hope you’ve found it to be helpful.  If you are in the market to Buy or  Sell a home within the South West Atlanta area, please feel free to give me a call.

I am a local West End resident and specialize in two of the best In Town neighborhoods of Atlanta; Historic West End & Westview.  I’m not just saying that we are the best,I have found this to be true- I moved  here from East Atlanta!  If you are looking for homes reasonably priced, spacious, character filled and a TRUE sense of community within the city-  we’re here for you!  

For further information about each please view : or contact any of the listed resources for neighborhood information as well as stats on crime, schools , shops.  Unfortunately my time is limited to my clients so I am unable to provide any general insight to our community beyond what I list on my blog.   However, after reviewing the above sites, and speaking with other residents, I’m sure you’ll come to agree these are great neighborhoods to relocate to and invest in.  Also, both communities have leaders that will provide walking tours.

If you are interested in becoming a client- feel free to give me a call 404-414-3289 or email to set a time for us to meet. I look forward to working with you!

Want to know more about me? “Google” me- see all that I do within my communities, I’m serious about the continued growth and redevelopment of these wonderful communities within Neighborhood Planning Unit-T (NPU-T)!
