Gretchen Waters

I am a Realtor specializing in residential sales in the Atlanta area.  Licensed in 2003, I began my career with Re/max Executives and am now with Realty Associates of Atlanta.  I am an active member of the DeKalb Association of Realtors and a multi-year recipient of the Pinnacle Award.

I began working in the real estate industry in 1996 as an assistant to Barbara Dillon, a long respected Atlanta Realtor & Associate Broker.  Together our partnership has grown to over 56 combined years of experience helping our clients in selling, buying, relocating and managing residential properties all over Georgia.  We specialize in DeKalb, Gwinnett and North Fulton Counties, from million dollar homes to investment or first time home buyers.  Our knowledge of the area housing market, school systems, housing trends and local amenities comes with being Atlanta natives. Having attended Briarlake Elementary and Lakeside High schools in DeKalb County, I have witnessed the highs and lows and the changes to the area.  It is an area that I believe in and have chosen to raise my own family.

Our continued success comes from the personal relationship we build with our clients.  Our goal is not just to close a transaction but to give you the time and communication to transition to the next phase in your life as smoothly as possible.  We have worked with generations of clients, families of years ago and then with their children when they grow up.  The greatest compliment we receive is the referral of a friend or family member.  That is the basis of our business and what we strive for every time.

What Clients Are Saying …

Gretchen Waters is not only an outstanding real estate agent, she is a delightful person. Truly, she stood out like a ray of sunshine among the many agents we had dealings with along our lengthy journey to find the perfect house. I am so glad we chose her. Her diligence, patience and buoyant personality helped keep me sane during the stressful process that finding and purchasing a home can be.

Ours was a unique situation and Gretchen put earnest effort and many hours into finding a house that met our needs. We soon discovered that she has an amazing work ethic. A work ethic like hers is a rare find these days. In addition, she is  knowledgeable and thorough in all aspects of the home buying process. She is really good at spotting and pointing out things in prospective houses that could cause problems in the future. From start to finish, any questions we had were promptly addressed. In one email to her, we sent a list of 12 bullet points regarding the house we decided to make an offer on.  Gretchen researched and responded in detail to each point within 24 hours. We really put her to the test and sometimes, I wonder that she didn’t fire us as her clients.

After finding the perfect house, it turned out we were working with a difficult seller. At this point, we came to believe she is a miracle worker! During the negotiation phase, she was tenacious yet professional and represented us well. Because of Gretchen’s diligence, hard work and gracious and positive personality, we now have our ideal home. It is a pleasure to recommend Gretchen Waters.

Gretchen is just superior when it comes to knowing her clients and their needs! We have purchased two homes and sold one with Gretchen.  She is the best!

Gretchen Waters helped me sell my home in Clarkston. Gretchen made the process so easy, as I was trying to handle things from another state. Her knowledge of the housing market is impressive. She was a joy to work with!
