“This is the 3rd time I’ve worked with Anna and her team – what a great experience. I listed my home in Decatur with Anna and within 2 hours after going live on MLS, I received a full purchase price offer. I was totally amazed. Anna and her team are with you 100% during the entire buy/sell process. I never had to worry about a thing. If you are looking for a reputable agent who will get you the best price possible and be with you every step of the way, contact Anna today!”

“My first time buying a home could not have been a better experience!

I was referred to Anna K’s team by a friend – where I was paired up with her Buyer Specialist – and I can’t imagine that there is a better buyer’s agent in town! Having my own agent made me even more comfortable with the entire process, which was terrifying as a single girl buying her own home. Her team were the best advisors I could have asked for. I trusted in her and she led me to the Promised Land!

EVERYONE that she referred me to was amazing.

A Big THANK YOU to  Anna, Ken, Leja & Bill – it was an incredible experience and you are a part of making my dream of home ownership a reality.”

“My wife and I are beyond pleased with our experience with Anna K Intown. Brian Olivard served as our buyer’s agent and was fantastic. We were in the process of moving from Pennsylvania to Atlanta, and as a result were doing most of our looking from afar. Brian visited home after home for us, taking videos and pictures and uploading them for us to review. Brian is very knowledgeable about the Atlanta intown market. After visiting the home we ultimately purchased, Brian advised us that it was a great deal and that we should make an offer immediately. Instead of following his advice, we decided to sleep on it. When we went to make an offer the next morning, the house was under contract. Thankfully, Brian did not scold us for our error, but instead helped us put in a back up offer on the home. The first offer fell through a few days later and we got the home! We are so grateful! I strongly recommend Anna K Intown (and Brian) for anyone looking to purchase a home in and around midtown Atlanta.”

“Anna and her team are amazing. I recently relocated back to Atlanta with the mission to sell our midtown condominium. That is exactly what we did! With Anna’s advice and marketing we sold and had a wonderful smooth experience. If anyone knows me, they know that I believe in Anna K!”
-Matthew Myers – Midtown Condo

 

“Anna K and her team were an absolute dream to work with. We were in the middle of a very fast relocation to Ohio, and needed an experienced realtor who is familiar with our neighborhood (Reynoldstown) so that we could sell our home quickly, but for top dollar. We are so glad we selected Anna and her team. They are extremely knowledgeable and professional. Their advice on pricing our home helped us get under contract in 2 days. It was more than we could have hoped for. Thank you so much Anna K Intown! Words can’t express how appreciative we are of all your hard work.”
-Gina Martel & Brian Kestner – Reynoldstown Home

 

“Fourth agent to list New York Avenue in Lake Claire and the best gets it sold! I was referred to her through a patient and she did a great job selling my house. She was very professional, courteous to my tenants, and guided me with truthful feedback from buyers to get my house sold! The transition went so smooth! I just can’t believe I don’t have NY Ave! Thanks again Anna K and team!”
-Shelly Mixon in Lake Claire/Candler Park

 

“Anna and Charlotte and their entire support team were amazing to work with.
Buying a home is a stressful adventure and we felt like we were in the absolute best hands. They took the time to listen to what we were looking for and what mattered most to us and then found us a home that is absolutely perfect. Charlotte was amazing and answered questions at all hours of the day/night and also within minutes of us reaching out to her. I can’t explain how comforting it is to feel in the loop.If you’re looking for a house in Atlanta you won’t find a group of people more familiar with the area or more helpful and awesome.”
-Bryson & Brad Smith in Candler Park

 

“My wife and I expected a rather difficult search for my new home in Atlanta and was not really looking forward to visiting hundreds of disappointing places. When meeting with Anna K. for the first time, my mood changed and I really liked that charming and motivating woman. She listened very carefully, analyzed my wishes professionally and successfully evaluated my taste. Anna immediately proposed a good selection of houses, which we visited the next day. Whenever I had a question, she responded within five minutes without ever putting us under pressure. Within two/ three weeks we found the house and are very pleased with it. Anna is the best Real Estate Agent you would wish, always very professional, knowledgeable and extremely motivating. “
- Charles & Eva Handschin in Morningside

 
“I was in a crunch and needed a place to live asap. The problem was I had no idea what or where to go! I called Anna and in less than a month (and over the holidays no less!) we had found my perfect home and were under contract. She’s so good!”
-Tracy Ariail in Inman Park
 

“Anna, was our selling agent for our Midtown Atlanta condo. Upon trying to sell this property twice in the last 4 years we actually had begun to consider short sale and other options. When Anna was recommended to me by a friend that I consider very discerning I chose to list with her and her team. Anna, gave insightful, affordable and realistic advice that we took to heart and implemented. Anna and her team kept us fully informed throughout the entire process and set realistic expectations. I believe that we were all surprised to see such great response to our listing. We saw a remarkable number of showings and sold in only 3 months time with only 1 reduction and closed at that new price. I recommend Anna Kilinski to sell your property.”
-Matt in Midtown

 

“In my opinion, there are a few key, yet fundamental traits and skills that are critical when choosing a real estate professional:• Integrity • community expertise • in-depth market knowledge • effective negotiation skills • a high-quality professional network…But at the end of the day, what all this boils down to is that your agent is working his/her butt off on your behalf. And if this is what you want to help find your new place in Atlanta, Georgia, let me tell you…. look no further than Anna Kilinkski and Leja LeBar. These ladies are top notch.I found Anna K after submitting an inquiry about a house I saw online. Never met either as I had just moved here. But within a week we were off and running.In short, we worked together for about 3 months. And it was enjoyable (fun is a better word) from our first tour of homes to the closing day.  I can’t tell you how much I value this. Home buying is a stressful process on so many levels, so this trait resonated with me.  In fact, on the day before closing there was a paperwork glitch with the bank. As I was about to lose my mind, she put me at ease. What she didn’t let me see is that she (and the banker) were working creatively and furiously behind the scenes on my behalf to figure out alternative ways to solve this paperwork glitch. That’s the kind of person you want on your team. As an agent or in life, right?A few other key things to note.
First, they know this city inside and out. She should. She’ s lived in it for a long time and is very plugged into the community. When looking at places, her enthusiasm for the city shined. Her insights, which are organically grown from her living here for years, proved invaluable. While I eventually found a house, I was in reality choosing a community. And that’s cool. Second, and I think this really important. I didn’t have the biggest budget nor did I need to move really fast …. An agent’s worst combination, right? But they never gave up on finding that right place for me nor did she try to force something on me just to move things along. She knew I was picky about houses and I was more intent on quality than speed so she worked within those parameters with flexibility, creativity and patience. No Crazy Eddy salesman here.Lastly…. What’s amazing about that process ….and fun for me …. is that with each successive trip, we were both getting dialed into that perfect house. The process is so much about communication…likes and dislikes. Etc. At first It was hard to describe why I liked/disliked a place. I’d say by our third outing, however, they knew what I was really after (Probably better than I knew myself). That comes down to communication , mainly listening.

Look … At the end of the day, all of the bulleted traits I listed in the beginning are tickets to entry for being a real estate agent. If you don’t have those you’re probably not going to be successful in selling real estate. Anna K’s team has those in spades. So the differentiator, IMO, is that the team is very passionate, dedicated, diligent and patient about the huge responsibility of finding me the right home. And to sweeten the pot, I simply enjoyed working with them both very much. They are both awesome people who I now consider friends.”

“I am an investor who has bought and sold hundreds of single family homes/condos over the last ten years and I have left nearly every transaction unimpressed with the listing agent’s performance, thinking that I had overpaid for their services. So much so, that I have never reused a listing agent on a subsequent listing after a sale. My impression now has completely changed in working with Anna and her team. Anna, Megan, and Ruth completely changed my understanding of how a sales transaction should take place. From the minute I signed the listing, Anna and her team took action and left no stone unturned throughout the entire process, including closing coordination that was on top of every single detail weeks prior to closing.The house Anna sold for me recently had some confusing flexibility in layout and a potential negative feature in that it was adjacent to a busy road. Instead of complaining to me and requesting excessive price reductions, Anna’s team staged the home with signs displaying options for each room and focused solely on the home’s lovely features when presenting to clients, not just that it was value priced because of the busy road.The specific thing I was most impressed with about Anna, was her uncanny ability to get feedback from buyer’s agents. In my experience, someone shows a home, leaves a card, and if they don’t write an offer, you have no idea what their impression was of the home or the list price. Anna was relentless in following up with showings, demanding feedback and opinion of price, location, amenities, etc… This was extremely helpful to me understanding the market better. It may not sound like much, but trust me, it is not easy to get other agents to do anything that doesn’t directly benefit them financially. It was very clear to me that Anna commanded the respect of her peers in the market and that is invaluable in a listing agent.I would highly recommend Anna and her team to anyone serious about selling a house. The friend of mine who recommended me to Anna simply said, “She will sell your house, period…That’s what she does.” Well, he was exactly right, and I am sure that I will have the opportunity to work with her again in the future.”
-Kelly Mahoney in Druid Hills

 

“Anna is a detail oriented aggressive agent. She is personable and professional, allowing her to be a successful and formidable negotiator. I have referred her to several friends and colleagues with no hesitation, and all have had an excellent experience.”
-Bahar & Greg Magnuson in Buckhead

 

“I am very grateful to have partnered with Anna Kilinski on the sale of my home. It took considerable knowledge, experience and patience to work through a very unique sale. As an agent, Anna went above and beyond to ensure that we moved forward through the steps of the sale, however as a counselor, Anna has a calm way of presenting difficult realities that sellers often wish to ignore. Anna always acted in my best interest, kept my best foot forward and did so with a genuine desire to represent me to the best possible outcome. I recommend her absolutely and without reservation.”
-Mike Herder in Historic Grant Park Intown Atlanta

 

“Anna was our Real Estate Agent for our home in Candler Park. She was a very good choice for us since she knows the Atlanta area so well and especially Candler Park since she lives there! She is highly professional and responds to your voicemail and texts promptly. What we liked about her the most was her Marketing abilities. Our online and brochure photographs of our home were spectacular! I would highly recommend Anna for any Atlanta Intown purchase or selling a house.”
-Deborah & Drew Buchter in Candler Park

 

“As a first time home buyer, the experience can be intimidating, the pace very fast, and the paperwork overwhelming. Compounded to that, I was buying my first house in Atlanta while living in Los Angeles. Anna made everything as smooth and easy as possible.When I scheduled literally one day to visit Atlanta and get a sense of exactly what I wanted, Anna cleared her schedule and spent the entire day with me. She had a rough idea of what I was looking for in terms of amenities and features in a home, so we looked at a good cross section of available properties in a variety of neighborhoods like Candler Park, Lake Claire, Inman Park, Grant Park and Ormewood Park. After the first three or four homes, Anna had asked sufficient questions to sharpen the focus even more, and we changed some of our viewings that afternoon based upon Anna’s thoughts and ideas.By the end of the day, I had three properties I loved, placed an offer and from there, Anna helped with all of the paperwork, advising me what was most important, what was kind of important, and what was your typical real estate jargon. Her confidence put me at ease. She was available at all times, and with a three hour time difference, that helped a lot. Six weeks after placing an offer I’m now living in a home I love, in a great neighborhood and now I’m just dealing with raking leaves in my yard for the first time. I didn’t think about that!”
-Alex Collins in Ormewood Park

 

“Anna listed and sold our home in midtown Atlanta this spring in very rapid fashion.
We listed our home after making minor repairs and touch up painting as suggested by Anna. All her advice paid off as the home was under contract approximately 3 weeks after listing even as similar homes in the neighborhood which had been on the market for months lingered.Anna also made the negotiations regarding the price of the home much easier with her extensive knowledge of the local market.  I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in Atlanta.”
-Gautham Mallampati in Midtown

 

We used Anna to sell our old house in Medlock Park and buy our new one in Oakhurst (Decatur). We interviewed four different local realtors, who knew our neighborhood well, including Anna. We were instantly impressed by her knowledge and professionalism. She was very prepared, even presenting a potential listing price with comps in the neighborhood. We selected her to represent us. The sale went quick, our first offer at list price (Anna’s advice got us priced to sell). As we began our search for homes to buy, we were looking in many neighborhoods (city of Decatur, fernbank school district, lake claire, oak grove, candler park or mary lin schools), and she was knowledgeable of all areas and provided honest advice. She was also patient with the process of narrowing down to the neighborhood. We were dealing with selling in a neighborhood with a significant number of homes on the market, and buying in areas where the inventory was low. Anna was very helpful in these different environments. We narrowed in on Oakhurst. We ended up in a bidding war on our new home.  Anna’s solid advice worked and we got the house of our dreams.We would definitely recommend Anna to anyone buying or selling. Just be willing to listen to her advice and follow it!
