This unique partnership allows for personalization, where every Buyer and/or Seller receives their own customized and “one-on-one” real estate experience. This includes a knowledge-based home buying experience for the Buyer and a carefully planned, fully integrated marketing plan for the Seller.

Cheryl and Jerry are both natives of Cobb County. They made their home in the Sandy Springs/Buckhead area of North Fulton County for 25 years. Currently, they reside at Lake Arrowhead in Cherokee County, having been property owners there for 41 years. Buyers reap the benenfits of working with life long residents of the area with long time reliable business, financial and legal contacts. Relocation is simple when they handle the details and, in the process, allow you, the Buyer, to make informed decisions about the purchase of your new home.

Sellers equally benefit from Cheryl’s knowledge of the North Metro Atlanta area, but key is marketing your home in all the right places. Because RE Associates utilizes the First Multiple Listing Service of Georgia, your home listing information is available to 42,000 Georgia real estate professionals. Also, with 90% of homebuyers beginning their home search on the Internet, the placement of your home on top Real Estate sites is essential. Recent statistics show that 50 million plus users each month visit these sites. Custom photos and virtual tours are a must. Combined with a comprehensive marketing plan which includes realistic pricing, print ads, custom flyers, OPEN HOUSES, and frequent feedback; the right mindset of the consumer; and the cooperation of the economy, selling your home should be timely and worry-free.
