Mark Spain Real Estate Opens Buford Office to Strengthen Metro Atlanta Presence

Buford, GA —Mark Spain Real Estate's fourth metro Atlanta location opened this week at 2050 Buford Hwy. NE, near downtown Buford.

This is the fifth location in Georgia for Mark Spain Real Estate and its seventh office in the southeast, having recently opened locations in Charlotte and Raleigh, NC.

According to Director of Sales Lisa Combs, the opening of the Buford office has her team of 15 agents—who also live in the Buford or surrounding region of Gwinnett County—eager to be closer to the clients they are serving.

“We serve a lot of clients in that area and to have more exposure in this region will allow us to gain more market share and better serve while being closer to the community,” said Lisa Combs. “As an individual born and raised in Gwinnett County, I am delighted to serve people in my community and help positively affect our local area that is so close to my heart.”

She explained their location—next to the public library that is just north of Highway 20 and two blocks south of Buford City Hall—is well suited to serve a wide region of focus. Mark Spain Real Estate agents out of the Buford office will be working with clients in a several county area, including Gwinnett, Dawson, Walton, Forsyth, DeKalb, Rockdale and Hall counties. At full capacity, the Mark Spain Real Estate Gwinnett office will be home to 35+ real estate professionals.

It allows them to provide far better quality of service and expertise to our clients.”

The Mark Spain Real Estate team of agents has sold houses in all 14 counties that make up metro Atlanta. With 2,318 closings last year, the firm averaged approximately eight homes sold per business day.

The firm’s rapid growth has not gone unnoticed. Mark Spain Real Estate was honored in spring 2017 by the Atlanta Business Chronicle with the Pacesetter Award. This award annually recognizes Atlanta’s top 100 fastest-growing privately held companies with a track record for taking their business to the next level. In September 2017, Inc. magazine ranked Mark Spain Real Estate No. 2,097 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Fewer than 200 real estate-related companies (including builders, property management, etc.) were on the list across the United States, making the Georgia-based firm’s appearance that much more significant.
