by Audra H. Anders for The Aha! Connection
I’d like to introduce you to one of our newest Aha! Connection clients, Madalyn Suits. Madalyn recently invited me to her Keller Williams office at Town Brookhaven. Her beautiful office space is located towards the back of the Town Brookhaven development just before you get to the now closed CinéBistro and is on the second floor above the retail area. There are hundreds of Keller Williams agents working out of this Keller Williams Peachtree Road location but Madalyn’s “Suits Team” of 9 are rocking the real estate market together and loving it!
She promised to start sending us more listings to share with you in our Thursday Real Estate newsletter which is exciting to me because her team covers all over metro Atlanta! Here is the first listing she sent to me after our meeting: Just Listed in Brookhaven
I personally own a rental home in Brookhaven, my husband’s office is in Chamblee, my closest Aunt lives just north of Peachtree City, and I live in Dunwoody. Therefore when reviewing her team’s featured top 10 listings, I found it particularly interesting that 5 are in Brookhaven, 2 each in Dunwoody and Chamblee plus 1 in Peachtree Corners. Residential real estate is hopping right now and it is a “Seller’s Market” according to every realtor I’ve spoken to, including Madalyn. Madalyn mentioned a home in Brookhaven recently sold for $200K OVER asking price!
So, let me tell you a little bit about Madalyn. She has been a realtor since 1997, originally for Jenny Pruitt and later helped open the first Keller Williams office in Sandy Springs. Her career was initially built on relocation referrals, so she has sold houses to incoming Atlantans in neighborhoods all over the metro area. She has a husband in the mortgage business and four kids who attend Wesleyan.
When Madalyn talks about her team of 9, her face simply beams. She told me more than once that she would not ever want to be a lone realtor. Teamwork is what makes the Suits Team so special. Her team has divvied up responsibilities so all help each other with every client which helps keep everyone from being too overwhelmed! She proudly mentioned all her team are working moms with kids (*one is a fur baby only mom for now). She mentioned that nobody on her team is ever alone…they care about one another and stop at nothing to achieve success TOGETHER.
When Madalyn mentioned she has a passion for helping seniors, I couldn’t help but think I needed to introduce her to the Netflix movie “I Care a Lot”.…..I can assure you Madalyn is the opposite of Marla Grayson LOL. Seriously, Madalyn takes great pride in helping grandparents, their children, and their grandchildren…. she says it is so much fun to work with multiple generations of families.
While speaking to Madalyn, I gathered that the Suits Team clients are pretty much family…not simply clients. They recently hosted an incredible client appreciation party at Arnette’s Chop Shop and have already set the date for their very popular client Braves outing which will be May 19th. They take upwards of 450 clients to a Braves game every year! The Suits Team also spearheaded a Covid outreach project whereby clients purchased gift cards and the dollar amounts were matched by The Suits Team resulting in $23,000 worth of gift cards to support restaurants and those in need of food from Dunwoody to East Atlanta. Madalyn even told me she’s helped clients find jobs and contractors! Click here to read Madalyn’s latest blog post just to get the feel of her down to earth, friendly personality.
I will conclude by mentioning the top two items Madalyn stresses to her client family:
She prides her team in working closely with clients to make sure they understand that owning a home is not just about being able to afford the mortgage. She advises them to be cautious because expenses increase along with bigger mortgages/bigger houses….and she never wants a client to get in over their head. Since she and her team have experience in so many areas across metro Atlanta, they can help clients find the exact community to fit their personal tastes and styles.
I could go on and on to tell you about their home-stagers, how they price homes, how they have contractors on standby to help you get “sale ready” etc. but I think you get the gist. The Suits Team is a group of working moms working together 24/7 to keep their client family happy and in homes they love to live in!
