Welcome to this week’s Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio Show! This week’s show is big, as we have the top agent for Coldwell Banker on the show, Debbie Sonenshine. Debbie has an amazing listing to tell us about, as well as information on the luxury real estate market in Atlanta. She’s followed by Christine Batten from PPG Architectural Coatings, which have some of the most trusted brands to turn to when it comes to time to paint your home or stain your deck.

We start off with Debbie Sonenshine, who leads the Sonenshine Team of Coldwell Banker. Debbie began working in real estate in 1981, and the rise of interest rates to 18 percent taught her how to work the market to successfully sell and find homes for clients in a demanding economic climate. Debbie began her real estate career in Atlanta, but she has gained a national reputation and won many awards in her years of service. This experience has led her to become the head of one of the most successful teams in the Atlanta market while remaining driven to understand and cater to the needs of clients.

As Debbie is one of the foremost experts in luxury properties in Georgia, we were excited to ask her what the gem of her listing collection is and it is a big one. Priced at $48 million, this stunning home is located inside the perimeter on 18.6 private acres in Fulton County. This is a world class estate, the likes of which can only be afforded by a handful of people, and it’s a feather in the cap of Atlanta to be offering such a magnificent property that comes fully furnished in the main home, pool house and guest house.

Debbie is also marketing the entertaining mansion offered by SEREI.net at 8495 Jett Ferry Road, but she wanted to make it clear to us that she and her team are devoted to Atlanta and not a price point. They work in a variety of areas at a range of prices, and may be able to help you in your search for your next home in Atlanta. To learn more about her and her team, listen to the full interview in the podcast above, visit www.sonenshineteam.com or call 404-252-4908.

Our second guest today is Christine Batten, an account development manager with PPG Architectural Coatings. Christine has been in the paint and coatings industry since 1987, working up from being a delivery driver for Duron all the way to operational management with Sherwin-Williams, then to PPG with sales and finally into her position as coordinator with new home construction.

PPG is one of the most trusted names in paint and other coverings, and Christine tells us why on the show – everything from having a strong tradition with construction to the multitude of materials they offer products for speaks to trust and innovation in the market. That couldn’t be truer with their home lines of paint, including Glidden, Olympic, PPG Porter Paints, Martha Stewart Living and much more. There’s also a wide variety of stains and other architectural coatings, including waterproofing coatings, roof coatings, deck coatings and many other products designed to make your home better.

Christine also gives us tips about how to choose what colors and coverings for your home, inside and out, including considerations for lighting, style and much more. You can listen to the full interview above to learn more design and safety tips about paint, or you can download it on iTunes to listen on-the-go as you head out to pick up your paints.
