From the Beginning

By: Altimese L. Dees,
Founder/Broker, The Real Estate Gallery of Georgia, Realtors

 

As a Realtor®, I have always loved art and historic homes. I grew up in Atlanta around old homes and art galleries. I was mesmerized by aged walls, dentil moldings, ionic columns and roof cornices. Sometimes, I could hear echoes resounding from high ceilings in large rooms. The glory that these vintage homes embodied are the features that I long for today. With this type of background, I can see beauty in an old shack or shot-gun house. As a child, I enjoyed walking down tree-lined streets on a hot summer day, which is probably why I am so in love with communities today.

As an adult, I found myself studying the history of Atlanta’s real estate pre-Civil War and the people that lived during that era. I concluded that real estate is a form of art and should be embraced for its craftsmanship, landscapes and architectural-style, such as Georgian, Mediterranean, Victorian, Colonial Revival, European, Renaissance Revival, Craftsman and Urban. The history of Atlanta’s architecture is rich and provides a basis for our mission today.

The Real Estate Gallery of Georgia was birthed out of this love and appreciation for homes and communities. We sell beautiful homes in Georgia and provide consulting services to help you plan. We are locally owned and operated and we pride ourselves in having an in-depth knowledge of the community. Our goal is to highlight the special attributes of a property and its community, to assist sellers in marketing their home, while helping buyers make an informed decision.

Inspired by architecture, landscapes and fine art, The Real Estate Gallery of Georgia was created just for you. We cannot be defined as a ‘traditional’ realty, as many of our competitors. We offer expertise, information and inspiration, which we feel is an invaluable real estate service. For a list of our services, please click Real Estate Services.

This year marks our 10th year anniversary marketing and selling real estate to families throughout Georgia. Over the years, we have sold countless homes and have helped many individuals and families achieve their real estate goals. We are inspired by the smiles, hugs and tears of joy at the closing, and feel accomplished by the comfort, love and shelter that each home brings.

We continue our journey with every home that we sell and every family God blesses us to serve. At the end of the day, we rest assured knowing that a house is more than just a place, it becomes a vital part of who you are. Looking forward to helping you find your special place…
