Nearly 2 decades – licensed since 2002.

What’s the best thing about being on The Cueny Team?

We laugh, have fun and care about people.

What’s the best part of your job?

As a Realtor, helping clients close one chapter of their lives and open the next while making friends at the same time. As a team leader, getting to motivate and be a part of an awesome group of people that care so much and work so hard each and every day.

How do you create motivation for yourself and for your team?

We look at our children. Motivation comes from within. What motivates me is my family and the desire to do and want more out of life. I try to lead by example and always push for excellence in my work.

The North Atlanta market – Alpharetta, Roswell, Johns Creek, Cumming, Lake Lanier. Also, in Luxury Market Sales in metro Atlanta and surrounding areas.

Why do you want to have a team?

Support for myself and my clients. It honestly takes a village or a strong sense of community to do a good job for clients and for your family. I believe having friendships and team members willing to assist you and your clients is the key.

What one word do (or would) your team members use to describe you?

Well, I hope it would be hard working.

Are there any Atlanta Areas that you feel you specialize in? What are they?

I am lucky enough to have developed a great client base that have made my business a referral based one where past clients send me their friends and family, so my clients drive what areas I sell. However, I live in Dunwoody and my kids have attended Marist with my youngest attending St Jude the Apostle so I definitely specialize in Buckhead, Brookhaven, Chamblee, Sandy Springs and Dunwoody.

What one word do (or would) your team members use to describe you?

Enthusiastic – I am naturally a high energy person (no caffeine needed) so there are times when I may get a bit more excitable than others.

What are your favorite ways to give back and help the community? Passion Projects?

I love my church and kids’ schools, so I will give time and money to them when needed. I also feel very blessed with what I have and know that so many are in need so I’m committed to giving to those less fortunate than me. First, I try to always have some cash in my wallet, so that when I see someone homeless, I give them some cash, whether it be $1 or $20. I also sponsor a family in need each Christmas and try to outfit each member, as well as give them gift cards, cash, etc.

PROFESSIONALLY SPEAKING
How long have you worked in the real estate industry?

I’ve been selling real estate, primarily in the northern suburbs of Atlanta, for over 2 years. 

What’s the best thing about being on The Cueny Team?

The support and friendship. No matter when and where, I know they are all just a phone call away. Their support is not only during a real estate transaction, it’s a whole life support. 

What’s the best part of your job?

Providing great service to our clients which can either be in preparing to take their home to market or the search. I love a good hunt! 

What are the TOP Three Things and or Skills That You Feel You Bring to Your Job?
  1. Preparation. Listing a home is a huge process and it has to be done correctly I love creating the timeline and executing. 
  2. Organization. There are so many moving parts to what we do. Andrea often says getting the house under contract is the easy part, but taking it to the closing table is where we shine. It is critical to be organized to meet all the deadlines. 
  3. Humor. Buying and selling is not for the faint of heart. It’s super stressful so a laugh here and there is much needed! 
Are there any Atlanta Areas that you feel you specialize in? What are they?

Absolutely, while I have lived ITP (Inside The Perimeter) my family has been in the Milton and Alpharetta area for a long time. So my primary focus is Milton and Alpharetta and the other northern suburbs, including Roswell, Johns Creek and Cumming.

Sarcastic.
