midtown Atlanta front porch living near Piedmont ParkWelcome to our local Atlanta real estate site. My name is Ian Marshall ( Google+) and I have been a real estate agent and broker for over 10 years in Atlanta. Over the last decade, we have sold homes from Newnan all the way up to North Forsyth and everything in between. We have handpicked individual agents that live in each of these areas that I would be proud to recommend during your real estate search.

Some of our favorite communities to sell and are the exciting intown market and the northern corridor. This area consist of cities like Sandy Springs, Dunnwoody and Brookhaven. If you’re looking for a top agent or a listing agent in these areas then you have found the perfect place. By hiring agents that live in local markets we have made a usually difficult real estate search easy by allowing a local expert to help you navigate through choices of school systems, traffic flow or neighborhood amenities.

atlanta-home-condo-advanced-searchAfter years of teaching and consulting about real estate websites, I can truly say that I have found the perfect product and layout to start your Atlanta real estate search. Showcase IDX works with our local MLS and allows for one of the most user-friendly map searches I have ever seen.

There are very few websites out there that allow a consumer to get as detailed as you can find at the top of this page. You can go so deep as to find properties with just cathedral ceilings, pet restrictions or lot size.


Just some of the basic search options on our site include.

Search by school – Elementary, middle and high school district real estate.

Easy map search – We use a full screen and allow you to zoom in or zoom out of your favorite local communities or buildings.

Condo building type – Not only can you search by condo amenities but you can also search by mid rise, flat or high-rise building. We even have a pet restriction search.

Newest listings available in Atlanta – Each search you do on our site you can sort by the newest listed properties. This is huge. Everyone is chasing just listed homes and you can see them here, right now.

New construction homes – not only can you search by area or community but you can also sort by the newest build homes or the oldest built homes in any area. That means if you’re looking for new construction or historic we have made your search very easy.

Style search – We offer every style you can imagine from contemporary, rustic or craftsman all the way to Bungalow and even A-frame homes. We also include the basics like Colonial, Cape Cod or European.

Short sales and foreclosures -Ian Marshall Realty Group may have the best place on the web to find Atlanta short sales or foreclosures. Just search what ever popular community you may be looking for and hit the foreclosure or short sale criteria and the newest available distressed properties will pop up.

There are many more advanced searches we have on our site including By lot size, waterfront, pool homes and even what type of construction the property may be like brick or stucco. Like I said before, I have been working on real estate sites for years and I am so excited to be able to offer one of the easiest yet most advanced searches available on the market today.

List your home with Ian Marshall

“Ian, I can’t thank you enough for all of the help you have given us over the years. You have sold two houses with Brittney and I and have helped us buy our dream home (which might just happen to be in one of the pictures in this post). You helped me sell a house in the worst economy possible that NO ONE else was able to move. That house sat on the market for 18 months then you listed it and you sold it in 25 days at the height of the recession. You sold our current home for a cash offer and negotiated the extra money and time we needed to make a transition. You stood by us when we lost our first house due to a paperwork issue on a VA loan. You then helped us find our dream home only to lose out on it on a cash offer that didn’t pan out. We then were back in the hunt with 8 other contracts and contracted on our future home. We close at the end of the month and it is all to you and your team at eXp Realty. You have an amazing talent for this business and Britt and I are thankful to have you as our agent and our good friend.”

– The Pierce Family

“Ian is a true Brookhaven real estate expert. Literally, it’s his backyard.
When faced with making the biggest decision of our lives and confounded with so many choices in property, Ian helped us make an educated decision. There are thousands of Atlanta Real Estate agents and we picked the best without a doubt. We recommend Ian Marshall unreservedly.”

~Stephen Whatley

“Ian was a pleasure to work with. He was able to supply me an extensive list of available homes in the area within my price range. One of the many comforting things in dealing with Ian is that he really listened and understood what I was looking for and delivered. He found me the perfect house in a great area. He has a dedication to customer service that is hard to find these days.”

~ The Sullens Family, Marietta, GA

“Ian was a gift from God when I was relocating to Atlanta from Florida. I felt totally comfortable purchasing my new home from another state. Ian was professional, knowledgeable and always available to me even for the silliest of questions! I love my new home, but if I were to sell it and buy another one I would absolutely choose Ian for the job!”

~Stephanie Cannon

“Thank you for your dedication and hard work; you went well above the call of duty to make this a smooth transaction. By far, this has been the best experience ever with a real estate agent. I appreciate your strong knowledge of the market, and look forward to working with you again.”

~Chad Dixon, St. Simons Island, GA.

“Ian, Frank and I can’t thank you enough for everything you did during our house hunt. After researching the internet and seeing your testimonials we knew you were the Real Estate agent for us. Due to our quick move and the bad timing to go house hunting (Thanksgiving weekend), we were amazed that you were able to take time away from your family to help us with our house hunt. Moving from Jacksonville, Florida to Georgia and only having two days to find a home, we know we couldn’t have done it without you.

The second we met, you greeted us warmly and gave us a three ring binder with information about every house and a map, this confirmed that we made the right decision to have you as our Real Estate agent. We quickly began to think of you more as a close friend than as a Real Estate agent.

Without you the closing process would have never gone so smoothly. Your contacts in the industry from home inspections to home/car insurance and closing attorneys made this a seamless transaction. Total closing time took only 15 days. Now two weeks after moving in we are elated with our new home, neighborhood and friendly neighbors. Thank you for the fabulous house-warming gift! You’re the best and we can’t wait to have you and your lovely wife over for dinner!

We would highly recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a home. Without question, we know who we will call for our next transaction. Thanks again!!”

~Lissette and Frank Pauley, Mableton, GA.

“After becoming frustrated with another agent, I decided to call Ian Marshall to help me sell my home, as well as find a new home. When I met Ian, his friendly personality and positive demeanor made a great first impression. Nonetheless, a good agent needs to have more than just a good personality to get results…….and Ian Marshall certainly does. Throughout the process, Ian constantly exceeded my expectations. He researched my area to ensure that my house would be marketed at the right price, and I actually sold my home for much more than I originally expected. As I looked for my new home, he made sure that he understood exactly what my needs were, and had many great properties lined up for me to see each time we met. As a result, I was able to find a new home in a relatively short amount of time. Ian is also great at follow up; I never had to wonder about the status of anything. He returned my phone calls promptly, and often proactively reached out to me to keep me informed. It is clear to me that Ian has a true passion for what he does, and has a genuine interest in meeting his client’s needs. I HIGHLY recommend Ian for anyone looking to buy or sell a home!”

~Chanda Washington, Atlanta, GA

“My fiancee and I couldn’t have been more pleased working with Ian. From beginning to end, his professionalism, hard work, and knowledge of the Atlanta area made buying our first home easier than I could have ever imagined. We knew from the minute we saw our house that it was exactly what we had been looking for and Ian was the one that made it all happen. We came out of this experience knowing that Ian is someone we can trust and will always look out for our best interests. He came highly recommended to us and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.”

Thanks again for everything,

~Ben & Rachel Blakeley, Marietta, GA

“Working with Ian was terrific! He made the process of selling my condominium very smooth and hassle-free. Ian marketed the property effectively and with a great deal of genuine enthusiasm. Within a few weeks, I had an offer on the property and closed shortly after. It was a very good experience!”

~Sasha Davis, Atlanta, GA

“I just wanted to write and tell you thanks for all the hard work you put in to helping me find my first house. You made this a very pleasant experience for me. You have gone beyond the expectations I had of my real estate agent and you continued to exceed my every expectation after closing.”

~Jason Raines, Atlanta, GA

“Ian, thank you so much for all of your help in finding our home. You were a class act! On our first trip, you had an organized plan, complete with a 3 ring binder and information on each of the houses we would view. Always flexible, you changed your plan when our needs required it, and you were willing to go the extra mile to show us “our house” additional times. As well, your friendly ways enabled us to feel comfortable and to know that you would be willing to help us, even after we purchased the house. Thanks for the lovely house-warming gift. You are so very thoughtful.”

~Michael and Amber Puline, Ossining, NY

“Thank you so much for handling the sale of our duplex. We are very pleased with both the selling price and with how quickly and easily Ian handled all the details that can quickly go awry if left unattended. If we buy or sell again in Atlanta, we want Ian as our agent!”

~Janie & Dan K., Atlanta, GA

“As a small business owner looking to purchase a building for my business, I faced a lot of questions. Since this would be my first commercial purchase, I probably had even more questions of my own. Thankfully, I was able to enlist Ian’s services. Ian not only found me the perfect building for my business but you also took the time to educate and inform me about local trends and issues along the way. Ian found us an excellent building in a preferred location for a very reasonable price. I wasn’t sure that was going to be possible.”

~Darrell R., Emerald Data Networks, Marietta, GA

“Without a doubt, Ian Marshall was extremely helpful in helping me and my wife locate and purchase our first home. In every way, he went the extra mile. Although Ian is knowledgeable, experienced, and professional, his greatest qualities are caring for his clients and passion for his work. This may sound “cheesy” but it isn’t meant to be…we not only found a home through this process…we gained a friend.”

~Billy Nolan, NPCC World Missions, Alpharetta, GA

“My wife and I were recently married when we called Ian to try and find a first home for a couple of newlyweds. After finding out some information about my wife and I he narrowed down a couple of areas of Atlanta for us. After just showing us a few homes Ian had our tastes and preferences down. He landed us in a nice home close to both of our jobs which allows us to have more time together, instead of being caught in frustrating traffic. Ian was a complete part in securing our home for us. He met with the home inspector to make sure that our house was sound and in good shape and also did a complete check of the area to make sure that we were in a neighborhood that was going to see a nice increase in value. I would recommend Ian to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in the Atlanta area.”

~Andy Sandlin, Atlanta, GA

“After moving to Atlanta from Charlotte, NC in April 2004, we were completely overwhelmed by the prospect of buying a home. In addition to not knowing the city and which neighborhoods would suit our needs best, we were also concerned about neighborhood schools, living inside versus outside the perimeter, home prices, traffic and the famous Fulton County taxes. Faced with a daunting amount of research, we resigned ourselves to pay a hefty monthly rent for a small house for at least a year before getting started. However, as previous homeowners, this situation didn’t suit us. Luckily, we decided to contact Ian to see if he could help us out. He immediately jumped into action and began to educate us on the real estate market in Atlanta. To make our search most efficient, he began by giving us virtual tours of all the different neighborhoods. After narrowing down the areas we wanted to look at, we hit the road and took a real tour. Ian did a great job as a tour guide. He pointed out everything from the differences in architecture to the traffic flows for each area. Thanks to Ian’s upfront due diligence, it didn’t take long to find the perfect home for us. We were also pleased with Ian’s numerous professional contacts! He referred us to an excellent mortgage broker, contractor, building inspector and attorney. His excellent working relationships with all of these people made every step of buying a home easy and seamless. Ian exceeded our expectations in every way and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.”

~Kristen Whisnant, Charlotte, NC

“When my fiancée and I began looking for our first home, we had to make a lot of important decisions for the first time in our lives; the best decision we made was choosing Ian Marshall as our real estate agent. What we thought would be a stressful and lengthy process turned out to be a quick and pleasurable experience. In a few conversations with Mr. Marshall, he was able to understand our situation and exactly what we wanted. We only looked at 3 or 4 houses before finding the perfect home. And the process did not end there. Mr. Marshall helped us negotiate a lower price including additional renovations, and the seller paid all of the closing costs!”

~Edward McConnell, Marietta, GA

“Ian helped me buy the exact condo that I wanted, for a great price and within the time-frame that I needed. He took care of all of the details, and made buying easy.”

~Bradford Baker, Los Angeles, CA

“I moved from San Diego to Atlanta with hopes of getting my first home. Thanks to Ian Marshall this was accomplished in a relatively short amount of time. Like other people looking for their first home, I had a lot of reservations. I didn’t know anything about buying a house and had many questions regarding mortgages, closing costs, home inspections, etc. The list was very long to say the least. Ian was able to get me the answers to all these questions and more importantly he could explain them to me. There is a big difference. I have been in my home for about a year now and I know for a fact that it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thankfully, I had a Real Estate agent like Ian who made the transition from apartment living to owning my first home an easy and rewarding experience.”

~Steve McCullough, San Diego, CA

“Working with Ian made selling my home a positive experience. His dedication and professionalism was apparent from day one. Ian was always available for any questions that arose and quick to respond for anything I needed. Anyone interested buying or selling a home, Ian comes highly recommended.”

~Brad Hill, Brookhaven, GA

“I would definitely use Kelly again for any of my real estate needs.
She was very professional, reliable, honest, knowledgeable, patient and not at all pushy. Within 2 days of intense searching, I was able to decide on the area and building I wanted to be in. She also helped save me money with the way she negotiated the contract.”

~Frank Verrilli, Peachtree Lofts

“Kelly has a great knowledge of the Atlanta area condo/loft market. She is very dedicated to her clients and treats them as friends. Kelly is very thorough when searching for the right property for her clients. I will use her to re-sell my condo and to find another home when that time comes.”

~Brian Rooks, Lenox Villas

“I can’t say enough about how much of an asset Kelly was to me in regards to my condo purchase in the Highlands. I never had to handle any phone calls or any of the pre-qualifications. She took care of all details and honestly it was the easiest real estate transaction I have ever taken part in.”

~Ron Still, VA Highland Condo

“Kelly was a great help not only during the search and buying process but has continued to be available and willing to do anything she can to help long after the purchase is complete. She was able to provide insight and advice without seeming pushy. She was immensely patient and made my first home purchasing experience a breeze.”

~Jayson Grabowski, Peachtree Lofts

“Kelly was really helpful in my first home buying experience. She guided me through each step of the process with ease, explaining anything I needed to know. I did not even know what questions to ask or exactly what to look for, but she was helpful in clarifying everything and even took into consideration my personality and character in finding properties to look at. Kelly was patient, caring, and professional. I would use her time and time again in my home buying experience.”
