Seller says…

“it meant a lot to me that my neighbors were wonderful and friendly. I really felt like they were looking out for me.”

When I first moved to 434 East Side Avenue, my house was where all my friends from other parts of town would gather before going out to the East Atlanta Village for the night. Sometimes we’d have potluck dinners in the big, open living room and dining room; sometimes the party would move to the deck and backyard, and we’d grill out. It’s the perfect location – walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, parks, and festivals of East Atlanta, but on a quiet street.


It’s easy to see why the New York Times had such great things to say about East Atlanta. The neighborhood is diverse, friendly, walkable, and it has a lot of character. There is no end to the list of fun things to do, and ways to get involved — festivals like the Strut, the Beer Festival, EAV-o-Ween, and Brownwood Bike Rally; organizations like the East Atlanta Kids Club, the new library, and more. There are many opportunities to meet your neighbors and become part of a great community. And as a first-time homebuyer, it meant a lot to me that my neighbors were wonderful and friendly. I really felt like they were looking out for me.


In the spring, I always got lots of compliments on the two azaleas in the front. In the summer, the impressive crepe myrtles blazed bright fuchsia, and the hibiscus bushes out front were covered in lavender flowers. At night the backyard lit up with fireflies, and I would like in bed and watch them.The pecan tree in the front produced tasty pecans in the fall.


I love how the layout of this house makes efficient use of space – with the front half of the house being so open, and with all the windows letting in light, it never felt small to me. It has generous closets for a house of its size, as well as a good-sized laundry area, without sacrificing living space. The kitchen has loads of counter space – I cook and bake a lot, and never felt cramped in the kitchen. My friends with similar-sized houses frequently commented on the big bedrooms and how roomy my house felt. But I still got the small-house advantages of low utility bills and not too much space that needed to be cleaned. Same with the outside – plenty of flat, grassy yard, but not more yard than I wanted to care for. And I don’t need to tell you how great it is to have off-street parking in EAV.


This is a wonderful house, in a fantastic location, in one of Atlanta’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Come enjoy EAV living for yourself.

It was a pleasure working with Marc. He took our needs/wants into consideration to locate a variety of properties. He went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home.

Marc definitely is an expert in Real Estate, especially In-town area. He is very professional, easy to talk to and he is with you during the whole process till the end and beyond. We purchased our home more than 2 years ago, but we always call him for an expert opinion.

You will enjoy working with him.

In January I referred Marc to a very dear friend who inherited her Aunt's 130 year old home. In weeks Marc had a contract, and then a back-up contract. Impressive; especially because the first two real estate agents my friend spoke with said that she should have the historic home demolished and sell the property as a parking lot. My friend adores Marc, and I appreciate the respect he brought to her family home.

Marc has the experience to see through the noise that is the local real estate market to get you not only the best price on selling your home but also the home that suits you best for you to then move in to. We know, we used him to sell and buy our last two homes.

The home we sold went under contract in 30 days if that tells you anything about his talent as a listing agent. The home we then bought was not only a perfect fit for us but was wanted by at least 3 other buyers the day after we had our offer in. Marc was quick and nimble in getting us through both the sale and buy. He brought a soothing calm when things got a little hectic. He negotiated with skill and got us the best prices on both sides of our deals. I would use Marc again but most of all I would recommend him to anyone that needed a savvy gentleman to help them with their real estate needs.

Marc knows the area (East Atlanta Village and surrounding neighborhoods) better than just about anyone. There are few houses that he hasn't stepped foot in! He knows the ups, downs and trends for each as he has been well connected with area residents, businesses, and community groups for quite some time.

I was a seller, but I believe that Marc is just what a buyer needs as well - a well informed, personable champion looking out for your best interests.

We had a great experience with Marc. We were particularly impressed with his knowledge of the neighborhoods we were interested in, including architectural styles and history. He understood what we were looking for and came up with smart ideas for finding it.

Marc is extremely knowledgeable about the intown Atlanta market and its quirks. He is a true professional and works hard to help his clients find the property that they want and need.

Marc knew the neighborhood I was interested in as well or better than anyone I've met, and lives there as well. His enthusiasm for the community and knowledge of micro-locations within it was incredibly helpful in moving through the process. Negotiations were fairly quick and easy and the process as a whole was as stress-free as I can imagine these things get.

My wife and I used Marc and just closed on our first home. He made the process easy from start to finish. We were working with a limited budget and he was able to find us exactly what we wanted in a great location. I would certainly recommend Marc to anyone looking to buy a house in the Atlanta area. His schedule is flexible (nights/weekends) and he really made us feel comfortable from the first time we met. Thanks Marc!!!

There aren’t enough good things you can say about Marc and his team. We had a complicated closing and contract due to our house being a new build. I am so thankful we had an agent who was extremely experienced and knew what to do in every situation. Marc genuinely cared about our circumstances and our family more than “selling a home” and getting his cut.
