Buyer finds opportunity in Collier Hills

meghanMeghan had been renting in the Collier Hills area for years and felt she was finally ready to buy a house.  After considering a few other parts of town, Meghan decided that she really wanted to stay in the Collier Hills neighborhood. Having spent the past few years there she couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

We looked at numerous properties and buildings in person and online to get a feel for that market. Meghan happens to be very creative and wasn’t afraid of doing a little work either which opened up some more opportunities. We found a great condo that offered tons of space for the price, had loads of charm and good bones. We were able to negotiate a good deal that would allow Meghan to do what she wanted to the unit and stand to make a profit down the road when she sells. I really enjoyed working with Meghan on her first home purchase. 

“Dixon was our realtor for our first home, so his patience and guidance was extremely helpful in getting to closing day! We had met with a few realtors around Atlanta and most lacked the responsiveness I was looking for. Dixon was incredibly professional and responsive with every listing and question (which there were many) that I had. I would HIGHLY recommend Dixon to anyone looking to buy in the Atlanta Metro area.”

Buyer Finds Life on the Atlanta Beltline

freedom heightsAndrew had a general idea of the area he wanted to live in, and just needed to find a condo that fit his lifestyle. We looked at a number of different options ranging from older/more residential condos to midtown high-rises and everything in between. Constantly travelling for work, a well maintained, secure building was a priority. Also, as an avid runner, proximity to the Atlanta Beltline was very important. We found a great deal, in a nice building, just feet off the beltine! Located right in-between Inman Park and the Highlands, the location afforded Andrew the lifestyle he was looking for. See what Andrew had to say about working with Dixon:

“From the very beginning, Dixon had a great level of professionalism. He knew the entire home buying process front to back and explained it very clearly…Dixon worked with my schedule to see different properties when it was convenient for me. Dixon was incredibly responsive the whole time. When I found a property I liked, he helped me negotiate an awesome deal to purchase it. (more…)

First Time Home Buyer Finds New Construction!

first time home buyerPatrick and Alex were looking to purchase their first home this Spring.  After a little looking around, we decided to focus primarily on the Westide, an area which is currently experiencing a boom in development and is convenient to the city. We found the perfect new construction home in a great community; a stone’s throw from the neighborhood pool and tennis courts! Here is what they had to say:

My husband and I were first time home buyers, and we had a wonderful experience with Dixon. Not only was he prompt and thorough in his responses to our questions, but he went with me to tour many homes and supported me throughout the entire process. When I was hesitant about certain things in a house or wondering about certain features, Dixon would give me his honest opinion and I began to truly value his advice and expertise. He asked questions to the seller’s agents at home tours on our behalf, and he truly tried to protect our needs and interests at each visit. When negotiating, he gave us honest advice and he recommended things based on his experiences. (more…)

Investor Sells Bungalow in Virginia Highland

Virginia Highland BungalowGeorge inherited a bungalow in the heart of Virginia Highland, and was looking to sell quickly. This bungalow had been converted into a duplex in years past and had some deferred maintenance issues. We marketed this property as a new construction and renovation opportunity to builders, renovators, and investors. We listed and went under contract in 4 days for $25,000 over list price! With George living out of state, we were able to communicate and handle each aspect of the transaction without him ever having to come in town. Here is what George had to say:

“I cannot imagine working with a more dedicated, responsive professional Realtor. Dixon was very knowledgeable about the Atlanta real estate market and was especially familiar with the unique qualities of the Virginia Highland neighborhood. He was very proactive in reaching out to potential buyers, and after only four days, had secured a solid offer on the house and we closed on the deal less than a month later. I feel very lucky to have worked with Dixon and am totally pleased with the outcome of the sale. Throughout the process, Dixon was very responsive in answering all of my questions and listening to my concerns… He was always quick to respond to email and voice mail messages in his authentically friendly and concerned manner. I can unhesitatingly recommend Dixon as a real estate professional who will give you excellent service and make the unavoidably stressful experience of selling a home much easier than you might expect.”
