Congratulations, John and Laura on your gorgeous new construction home in one of Atlanta’s best neighborhoods, Chastain Park!

We hope you had a wonderful first Christmas in your new home and know that you will make some fabulous  memories there! Thank you for your trust in us and thanks to our friends/clients Will and Tiffany for referring us!

Congrats, Glenn & Shelly on your great Midtown Bungalow!

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

photo-3Congrats, Glenn & Shelly on the purchase of your AWESOME Midtown bungalow! Jennie and Shelly worked together in the PR industry, so when Shelly and her new husband Glenn were looking to purchase a new home together it was a great fit. When Glenn and Shelly walked into their new Midtown home, it seemed like a perfect 10! There was a great space for the media room AND an extra bonus area for an in-home office, but most importantly the location couldn’t be beat! We sincerely appreciate this couple putting their faith in our team, and we look forward to visiting soon and hearing about all of the great walkable restaurants and shops you have found!

Congratulations, Ashley & Scott on your Fama Heights home!

Monday, October 21st, 2013

TalbotAshley and Scott met with Andy to purchase a home a little over a year ago, but then Ashley & Scott made the decision for her to take a position overseas. They enjoyed their time in Europe, but decided to start a family and move back to the States. When they returned, they started working with The Peters Company’s buyers agent, Jennie. They quickly learned in this hot real estate market to jump at great opportunities, and they found a fantastic homes that met all of their needs in Fama Heights – a great established neighborhood off North Druid Hills. Congrats again on your awesome home and new baby!

Congratulations Tom and Randi on your gorgeous home in Brookhaven’s Ashford Park neighborhood!

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Tom and Randi

A huge congratulations goes out to Tom and Randi who built a new home on the highly desirable North Thompson Road in Ashford Park. When Randi and Tom discovered the lot, they immediately loved its location and walkability to nearby Brookhaven hot spots. Andy represented the seller, so Jennie stepped into her buyer’s agent role to help Randi and Tom. A beautiful new construction home was planned for the lot, so Tom and Randi jumped at the opportunity. They waited through a long and rainy summer as their home was being built and learned the ins and outs of the construction of their new property. On a beautiful September day, they closed on their amazing home which we think has some of the best curb appeal in all of Ashford Park! We look forward to seeing your finishing touches and enjoying some vino on the back deck!

Congratulations, Nick and Lindsay on the purchase of your Peachtree Hills bungalow!

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

LanierNick and Lindsay’s search for a home was short and sweet. The minute they saw an adorable bungalow in Peachtree Hills pop up on their search, they felt it could be “the one” – and it was! Newly engaged, Nick and Lindsay were excited to purchase their first home, and they may have found the best deal in Peachtree Hills. This home is FULL of charm while still maintaining a modern and open feel – and the location can’t be beat! An access ally behind their house was a pleasant surprise – as was the neighborhood cat they met after moving in! Thanks again to Lindsay and Nick for being great clients – before, during and after close!

Congrats, Jim on your traditional Lawrenceville home!

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

JimWhile we think that all of The Peters Company clients are special, it’s especially fun to help family members find a great home! Jennie and Jim are first cousins, so Jennie had to switch gears to “Realtor” to help Jim find the perfect first home and investment property for Jim. Ironically, Jim proved to be the real business man in the transaction when he displayed a great negotiation tactic to help him score an amazing deal in Lawrenceville (of course Jennie thinks she helped some too!). The transaction was clearly meant to be, and it was smooth sailing all the way to the closing table! Now Jim has an amazing home, and Jennie can keep her great reputation as the family real estate agent! Congrats again, Jim!
