In response to Atlanta’s rising stature on the global market as a major international city for living, working and investing, Shirley Gary announced that her company About Sales, Inc. is now Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta, part of Engel & Völkers, one of the largest international luxury real estate brands in the world.

“As part of Engel & Völkers’ global network that spans 38 countries and six continents, we offer our Atlanta clients access to a global audience,” says Gary. “At the same time, our in-depth expertise of the local market will greatly benefit international clients who are moving to Atlanta.”

Gary has been in real estate and new construction sales management throughout metro Atlanta for more than 20 years with such companies as Pulte Homes, DR Horton Homes, Sharon McSwain Homes and Paul Thomas Homes. Since starting About Sales in 2007 at the downturn of the market, by 2013 Gary had grown the company to almost $4 million in annual gross revenues.

“We are extremely pleased to have Shirley and her team represent our brand in the Buckhead Atlanta market,” said Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & Völkers North America. “There is no doubt that with her years of experience and leadership, Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta will be a valuable addition to our global network.”

In 2013, Engel & Völkers approached Gary to bring their luxury real estate brand to Atlanta’s prestigious Buckhead area and beyond. As Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta, Gary’s company continues to provide unparalleled professional service to its residential, luxury and commercial clients, including its widely respected new homes division. Currently, Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta includes 40 full time professional real estate advisors.

“Our decision to open in new markets depends on identifying the market leaders in leading markets,” said Tim Jones, SVP, Market Development Engel & Völkers North America. “Shirley Gary and her team were a clear choice for us – we are very happy to have them as part of the Engel & Völkers family.”

Coming this fall to Buckhead Atlanta:

Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta has offices on Piedmont Road, but the company’s new storefront (‘Property Shop’) will open in the fall of 2014 in OliverMcMillan’s sophisticated Buckhead Atlanta mixed-use project. A new concept for Atlanta real estate firms, the Shop’s elegant 35’ glass façade will showcase available real estate properties from Atlanta and around the world, similar to displays by other world-renowned luxury brands, including many that are slated to open in Buckhead Atlanta within the next 12 months.

Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta will be located on the ground floor of the Spanx headquarters office facing Pharr Road, next to American Cut, the premier steakhouse that will open later this fall.
