Having worked for a national real estate company, broker Lea (Lanier) Johnston found a need for a brokerage that would solely represent the interests and needs of the Atlanta homeowner. She opened a boutique brokerage in 2006 to serve the Atlanta homeowner’s specific needs and tastes. She was quickly recruited to manage a brokerage that had tremendous success during the housing crisis selling foreclosed properties for Fannie Mae and other banks and financial institutions. The company provided great insight into the current market trends for Atlanta and provided Lea with a new perspective on the Atlanta real estate market.
With her background in traditional real estate sales and new construction, and now with an in depth knowledge of foreclosure/REO properties, Lea’s well rounded knowledge of the Atlanta real estate market was fostered. Lea was looking for a place to call home that would serve all of her client’s needs. Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International was just that fit allowing her to provide million dollar marketing and an extraordinary level of service to her clients that they deserve.
Lea prides herself on being patient with first time home buyers and taking her time to learn individual markets around the metro area in order to effectively market properties. She has extensive knowledge of in-town neighborhoods as well as the suburbs and she is well educated on the Atlanta metro market.
