Georgia is my home, I was born and raised here in this peach state. I lived a short minute in Chicago where I met and married my husband and we have an adult daughter.
I grew up in the Atlanta area and began my real estate career originating mortgages for a few years prior to becoming licensed in real estate. After becoming licensed, I honed my real estate skills working with a group of real estate investors who were also my broker . Our specialty was whole sale buying, renovating and retailing homes in Atlanta and East Atlanta concentrating on Grant Park, Kirkwood, Candler Park and other surrounding inner city communities. This fascinating experience continued for four years until I obtained my broker license; at which time, I began working with first time home buyers.
To date, I enjoy assisting the consumer with achieving home ownership, assisting the home owner with avoiding foreclosure and marketing bank owned properties. My specialty areas are East and South East suburbs of Atlanta, like DeKalb, Newton Henry and Rockdale County. Although I concentrate mostly East of down town Atlanta, with the assistance of my network affiliates, I sell all of Georgia.

|Teresa handled a recent real estate transaction for me with such amazing ease, follow-up, professionalism and speed; I was utterly amazed at the level of knowledge that she possesses. Teresa constantly stays abreast of the various industry changes and trends. I highly recommend her for any and all of your real estate needs. You would never regret your decision to utilize her services. Teresa is easily and truly one of the best real estate professionals that you will ever find in the metro ATL area. "Shan Bell. Atlanta, Ga" Teresa Lains is an AWESOME realtor! She took the time to listen to my ideas about a new home and helped me find the PERFECT ONE!!! I am generally a very busy person and I was very appreciative of the fact that Teresa's responses to me were always very timely and informative. She answered questions, sought out information, and coached me through the process. Everytime someone talks to me about buying or selling a home, I ALWAYS suggest Teresa. I hope that I will never have to move again, but if I do, Teresa Lains will be the only realtor to consider!!!! "Blake Lester, Stone Mountain Ga." " We got a last minutes call from the closing attorney ( while in route to our closing) that the Lender would not allow the seller to make a contribution to our closing cost, in spite of the contract disclosing this before hand. My husband and I were in a panic, especially being that we had absolutely NO representation, as ATL was representing the Seller... but the quick thinking agent handled this process with ease and expediently, it made us feel great, being that she was not even working for us !" " Patricia Sizemore, Stockbridge GA." I am a real estate investor here in Georgia, and although Teresa has assisted me in the past with several transaction, I can honestly say, that I do not use her exclusively. With that said, she never fails to make me feel as if I am her only client, she never asks me that embarrasing question " why didn't you use me for that transaction?" She is indeed a class act, I trust her opinion when she gives me comparables to assist me with my offers. " Andre Jackson, Lithonia GA." My Wife and I were transferring from the Virginia area Georgia, we did not have a clue about a Lease Purchase transaction. We found an ad in the paper concerning a Lease Purchase, thank God, the broker was ATL, they walked us through the transaction, answered our questions and worked with us to qualify for a mortgage loan after leasing the property for 12 months. They really made the transaction easy. "William and Shellie Grant, Lithonia GA." ATL was referred to us, my fiance was loosing his house to a foreclosure. In spite of trying to sell the property for almost 8 months with another real estate broker, he was less than 30 days from it being sold on the court house steps. We pulled the listing and placed it with ATL who worked out a short sale contract within 14 days of us listing the property. My fiance's credit was saved from a foreclosure, we really appreciated Teresa's hard work and how she kepted us in the loop of everything that was happening. "Tracy Mathis", Decatur GA.|
