Keller Williams Realty Metro Atlanta
315 W. Ponce de Leon Ave
Decatur, GA 30030
As an agent who's an expert in the Metro Atlanta area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home and at the right price, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show it to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

She pointed me in the right direction and was able to get me into a first time home buyers program. Her knowledge and patience guided me into my dream home.

"I was faced with an issue with trying to get qualified for a mortgage. When I met LaVonda I had given up on buying and started looking at rental properties, she asked me about buying when I explained to her my situation, she linked me with her loan officer. LaVonda as a Realtor showed me that it was more than just a job to her, that she really cared about my family needs and did everything that she could to help me get in a beautiful home and I was qualified for home for $150,000. She was very professional she was there when I needed her just to ask the little silly questions she understood my paranoia with this being the first time buying a house and she was very informative and explained everything to me she made this experience feel like I've done this a million times before and I would recommend her to anyone."

"LaVonda Gilchrest is a very highly experienced Realtor. She exudes knowledge of the profession of Real Estate. She is very professional and at the same time very caring. She is very patient and understands the needs of her clients. She is very attentive and she immediately knew exactly what my needs were when I described the type of house I wanted.

She was always available. I recommend LaVonda Gilchrest to be your Realtor for all of your real estate needs."
"I met LaVonda through friends. They highly recommended her. She was out of town at the time & they insisted I wait for her to return. I was impressed with her professionalism. I'm from another country. I did not have any knowledge about purchasing a new home in the US. LaVonda is very knowledgeable. She worked with me every step & made sure I understood all the details. I found LaVonda very efficient in every aspect. She worked with me as if she was purchasing the home for herself. Thanks to her I now own a wonderful townhouse. LaVonda is excellent. I would definitely recommend her."

"I've been working with LaVonda for years and she is the most attentive, tenacious, and expedient realtor with which I have ever had the pleasure of working. She will get the job done!"
"LaVonda was one of the best agents that I have worked with. I was building a home with Capshaw Homes and the agents I was working with left in the middle of the process, without verifying and confirming all the requests I had for my new home. LaVonda was assigned to my home and from that point forward she did everything in her power to make sure that I got everything I wanted in my home buying experience. Every time I texted or called her she made herself available for whatever I needed. She was a true professional and I would recommend anyone who is buying a home work with her."
"LaVonda was outstanding. No words can describe how great she was to my wife and I. She is very knowledgeable and professional, and will make you and your interests her top priority. I highly recommend her. Thank you for everything LaVonda!"
