Family finds home in Johns Creek, GA

Ridgeway familyNathan and Gicela were moving back to Atlanta from Texas with their two small children. Schools were very important! They chose Johns Creek as their primary focus. Homes were selling super fast in their price range. It look seven offers but we finally landed a great home for them in a swim/tennis neighborhood!

Here’s what they had to say, “Becky is extremely knowledgeable and was unbelievably helpful during the entire buying process. She went out of her way to make it as easy and hassle free as possible. We’ve heard negative stories before about other buyers and the difficulty they had with all of the paperwork and time spent negotiating but that wasn’t the case at all with Becky. Her professionalism and responsiveness actually saved us time and money. We are very thankful that Becky was our agent and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home.”
