Associate Broker and Accredited Staging Professional®
Co-Owner – Sweet Magnolia Homes

Abby is the co-owner of Sweet Magnolia Homes, an Associate Broker at Atlanta Communities Real Estate Brokerage, located in beautiful Marietta, Georgia, and an Accredited Staging Professional.

With years of experience helping buyers and sellers, Abby knows how to locate the right properties and negotiate the best deals. Abby says, “It's my job to know about the latest market conditions, home design and staging trends, government regulations, and upcoming developments — so that you don't have to. I am dedicated to putting my experience and local knowledge to work for you, in all steps of your real estate transaction, from start to finish.” 

Abby grew up in the Northeast Tennessee mountains and began her customer service and sales career at the age of 16, as a greeter and server at The Chop House. After graduating with an Associate's Degree in Communication, with an emphasis on Advertising, from Northeast State, and Bachelor's Degrees in Public Relations and Political Science, from East Tennessee State University, Abby accepted the opportunity of a lifetime and traveled across the world to intern for the Marshall Islands National Olympic Committee. 

In early 2010, a change in career brought Abby to the Atlanta area. Abby quickly realized her love for real estate, while working as a marketing and transaction coordinator for a top producing real estate team. After obtaining her real estate license, she quickly began working full-time with buyers and sellers.

As a Listing and Buyer Specialist, Abby happily helps families buy and sell homes in the Atlanta area. She loves working with Sellers and Buyers at all different stages of home ownership: first-time home buyers, investors, relocations, move up homes, retirement homes, etc. As an Accredited Staging Professional, Abby enjoy helping her clients stay up to date on the current home design trends, as well as helping sellers edit, organize and stage their home to sell, so it appeals to the broadest audience and sells in the fastest time and at the best price.

Drawing from her diverse past experience, Abby constantly works to provide a calm presence and make sure the client's transaction runs as smoothly as possible. Using her foresight and creative thinking, Abby works proactively to address details before they become a problem. Abby passionately addresses the needs and goals of her clients by listening intently, sharing honestly and working together as a team to help you achieve your real estate goals. Abby’s belief in integrity, hard work and creative thinking are evident in both her work and personal life.

Abby is wife to Matt, an attorney in the Atlanta area, and mom to fur-babies, Buford and Lucille. In her spare time, Abby enjoys spending time with family, a good happy hour with friends, getting dirty in her garden and seeking adventure in the outdoors.
