Originally from California, I moved to Atlanta in 2010 and quickly fell in love with the city's charming, distinct and diverse neighborhoods. Over the years I've lived in Old Fourth Ward, Edgewood, Ormewood Park, East Atlanta, and now reside in Grant Park. I view my role as you real estate advisor and guide, not as a salesperson. I work hard to understand each of my client's unique goals and provide tailored and customized service. I work with both buyers and sellers and have experience guiding out-of-state buyers who are relocating to our wonderful city. As a Realtor® and as a parent of an Atlanta Public Schools student, I am happy to partner with School Sparrow to provide my clients with better, more equitable information on schools. Marisa is a Realtor® and member of Groundwork Realty Group. www.groundworkATL.com

With decades of combined real estate, design, and marketing expertise — Katie has one goal: to make your life easier. Her strategy for buying and selling begins with actively listening and understanding your individual needs, helping define goals, needs, and wants — and being by your side through this journey with skill and care. She is a skillful negotiator, motivated self-starter, and exceptional manager who can help keep all parties on track for a smooth closing. Katie moved to Chicago from downstate Illinois to get her bachelor’s degree in design and fell in love with the city — the people, the architecture, the history, the grit. She cares greatly about our community, which is why she donates to local nonprofits as part of every real estate closing. She currently resides in Old Irving Park and has lived and loved all over the city. She is happy to call Chicago home along with her writer husband, boisterous toddler, and wild rescue pup. In her free time, she paints giant paintings, scratches her handy-woman itch in her new home, is a wannabe chef, and adds to her ever-growing spoon collection.​ Whether you are thinking of buying for the first time and need an expert hand to hold, need added design/planning help while searching or selling, or are in a unique situation that requires extra support and care through your journey — reach out to Katie today to get started!
