Agent of the Month Lorrie Collie Provides Insight Into Our Woodstock GA Homes

Woodstock GA homes agentThis month, we had the opportunity to speak with another one of our agents, Lorrie Collie, about her career and our exciting new Woodstock GA homes community, Oakhurst. Here’s what she had to say:

  1. How/why did you get into a career in real estate?

My real estate career began 15 years ago. I made a personal and professional decision to be the very best agent I could be by working day and night, knocking on doors, farming communities, attending seminars and furthering my education, which lead to receiving my real estate Broker’s license as soon as I became eligible. All of the foot blisters, worn out shoes and rejections after started to pay off. I started receiving customer calls from my continuous efforts, and I realized working with buyers to make their homeownership dreams come true would be the true blessing of choosing this career. I worked with all price ranges, loan types and both existing properties and new construction homes. Today, my priority continues to be customer satisfaction, and after 15 years, I still feel the passion for making homeownership a stress-free, exciting experience.

  1. Why did you choose to work with Brock Built Homes?

I chose Brock Built because I believe in the quality workmanship of their product and their family values. After doing serious due diligence in the Atlanta new construction market, I found that in touring communities in the upscale market that the quality and locations Brock Built provides were outstanding, and the price point was one that I had managed and sold in previously. 

  1. Give us a brief description of Oakhurst.

Oakhurst is a well thought out community with beautiful amenities and elegant designs, all value priced with the well-known Brock Built quality. Oakhurst will have 157 new craftsman-style Atlanta homes priced from the mid $200,000s in a variety of ranch, master on the main and master up plans. Oakhurst will also feature the unique Mews section, which will include beautiful gardens, picket fencing and trails. Amenities include a clubhouse, junior Olympic pool and a playground.

  1. How do you think the community’s location in Woodstock will impact its success?

Woodstock has doubled in size over the past 10 years, which makes it the fastest growing city in Cherokee County. There are unlimited possibilities thanks to the community’s convenience to downtown Woodstock, I-575, shopping, dining and the new Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta.

  1. What is your favorite part of working in real estate?

My favorite part of working in real estate is that I am in a position where I can really be a part of helping homebuyers find that “dream home,” and knowing that I helped in finding and making their dreams come to life. Happy homeowners are always my goal, and I strive for nothing less.

  1. What advice would you give today’s homebuyer?

The advice that I would give today’s homebuyer is don’t settle; when you find “the house,” you will absolutely know it. Don’t wait to make your offer when you really know that is the house for you. With the market heating up and rates creeping up, you don’t want to miss your opportunity move forward with your home purchase. You heard it from Lorrie, the Atlanta real estate market is heating up!
