Meet the Team

Experienced. Trustworthy. Knowledgeable.


We're Happy to Meet You

We are a local, family-owned company of seasoned realtors, investors, and real estate advisors. We buy. We sell. We renovate. We rent and pretty much everything in between.

As one of the top Compass realtors in Atlanta, we are your one-stop, full-service resource for buying and selling homes. We offer a robust range of services — we buy, sell, and everything in between, and we can help you do the same. Our passion is to provide you with options and recommendations for your next move based on where you are and where you’d like to be.

The real estate industry is a complex one brimming with a broad range of individuals, some of whom won’t always have your best interests at heart. Here at Purpose Driven, we pride ourselves on prioritizing our clients above everything else. We are a team of honest and dedicated individuals who you can trust, no matter what.


Our Real Estate Approach Sets Us Apart

We start with YOU. Your situation. Your goals. Your dreams. Based on your aspirations and our insights, expertise, and connections in the real estate market. We create custom, personalized experiences for every client based on what they’re looking for in a property or sale. 

Buying a home is one of the most significant financial decisions you’ll make in your life. You’ll want someone you can trust to manage stress and remain detail-oriented throughout. We strive to epitomize the most valued tenants of our group, including honesty, loyalty, trust, and integrity.

We are relentless in our pursuit of perfection, but most importantly, we always have our client’s best interests in mind. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned seller. We will have your back from the first meeting through closing and beyond. Give us a call today. You won’t regret it.
