We came to Champ with a pretty challenging situation: buying and selling simultaneously with one contingent upon the other. Champ was extremely knowledgeable and patient throughout the process. He offered information and guidance while maintaining objectivity. He is very thoughtful with every action and never rushes the decision making process. In the end everything worked out incredibly smoothly despite all of the obstacles. Champ is always my first recommendation to friends in the market.

Champ was awesome! Patient, thorough, and a great negotiator. We used him for both the sale of our house and the purchase of a new one. He has great market insights and a good pool of resources that he used to our advantage. I would highly recommend him for either side of the real estate experience!

I worked with Champ to buy my first home, and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to buy in Atlanta. His persistence and patience helped me find the perfect condo. He listened to what I was looking for in a condo and got me in to see many, many listings until we found the one I was excited to call home. As a side note, we played this really fun game when touring homes where I got to list all the things I liked about the condo and Champ reminded me how that attribute either fit into my wish list or was the exact opposite of my wish list. For example, when we started the search, I said I absolutely DID NOT want to be on the first floor, it had to be a second story unit. I ended up buying a first floor walk-up condo, and before seeing the unit and signing the contract Champ reminded me, “you said you didn’t want to be on the first floor, do you still feel the same way?” I really appreciated his honesty and always felt like he was looking out for my best interests. In addition to being absolutely delightful to work with, Champ is incredibly knowledgeable and well-known in the in-town market, and he utilized these connections and skills throughout the buying process. I really saw Champ work his magic when my original lender had to take some time off for personal reasons. Champ reached out to a couple people and within 24hrs I had a new loan officer. We closed 3 weeks later, and the rest of the process went smoothly. Whether its a buyer’s market or seller’s market, Champ Hammett is the realtor you want in your corner!
Champ is literally the best person you could find to help you buy or sell your home. We’ve used him multiple times and are always impressed with his willingness to do anything and everything to get you the perfect home. 10/10 recommend!!
– Adam and Lindley-Stuart
My wife and I were having a bit of trouble finding the perfect home ourselves. We were referred to Champ by our good friends who just sold AND bought a house with Champ. We met on a Friday and put an offer on our now home the following Monday. Champ is hardworking and well connected in the city. 10 out of 10 would recommend! All around great guy!
– Hannah and Joseph
My first home buying experience couldn’t have gone any smoother or easier thanks to Champ. From beginning to end, Champ was readily available with his wealth of professional knowledge and a right balance of personal opinion to give me full perspective each step of the way. He was always readily available to answer any questions I had and that was especially important to me since I was also in the process of moving back from another state. Definitely recommend Champ to anyone in need.
Leja supported us through the sale of our home (which she helped us to buy 3
years prior…). I have so many great things to say about Leja that I’m not sure
where to start. We decided to sell our home on the heels of welcoming our first
child into the world, so needless to say we had A LOT on our plates. Leja saved the
day by providing phenomenal support throughout the process. She helped us
decide what *reasonable* improvements to make on the house to improve sellability,
but didn’t burden us with a laundry list of expensive home improvement
tasks. Additionally, she made excellent recommendations in regards to pricing the
home, striking just the right balance between enhancing value for us while
ensuring a quick sale once the home hit the market. She was an exceptional
communicator with other agents/clients/lenders/attorneys, and made sure
everyone involved in the process was kept up to speed. To top it all off, she’s so
much fun(!) and handles any issues that arise gracefully. I honestly am not sure we would have made it through the process without her.

“As a favor, Steve assisted us in refuting a bank appraisal we needed to realize our dream renovation. As appraisals are just ‘opinions of value’, successfully overturning one is no easy feat. We are living proof if your agent knows the business, knows the market and passionately advocates for you, it can be done. Thanks Steve!” Paul and Sara
Refuting an Appraisal for Our Dream Renovation – No Way!
“We had to relocate away from Atlanta for a promotion. Our relocation company required three home valuations from real estate agents. Two agents valued our home in the low $500,000’s; Steve insisted the market value was $625K. We chose Steve but requested he price it at $599K in order to get a quick sale.
In one weekend, we got an offer at $625K; $25,000 higher than our asking price and right where Steve valued it! In Texas, we were now able to get the home we really wanted with the added proceeds. Ask Steve about the need for a 4th valuation and his kudzu removal from our creek!” Laney and Chip
Confident Market Knowledge
“Steve encouraged us to submit a back-up offer and persisted with the listing agent. When the first offer deteriorated, Steve acted quickly and we got a great home in the neighborhood we loved. Once in, Steve helped us source and manage vendors for a great renovation” Xavier and Oksana
Persistent and Savvy
I hold Natalie in the highest regard. Having been a neighbor and friend for several years, I know first-hand the level of commitment Natalie gives to each of her clients. And with an extensive background as an architect, she has a foundation (pun intended) of knowledge that enhances her real estate expertise that you can’t find in most agents. I was anxious about selling my house, so Natalie performed an analysis and devised a plan based on my objectives. Within days she negotiated an above list selling price before a sign was even put in my yard! I trust Natalie and would recommend her services to anyone looking for a trustworthy and hardworking agent. – Julie Phillips
Natalie and I were co-workers at a large architecture firm in midtown before starting our own businesses. She has always displayed the highest integrity in all of her efforts and is able to cut to the chase quickly in terms of critical path decisions. When she added her real estate license to her architecture license, it was a no-brainer for me to hire her to act as my agent on one of my first projects. She’s constantly looking for ways to bring value to the deal, is highly competent, and has been very helpful to me as I present different design scenarios to her and the possible FMV of them. – Alex Wu
I worked with Natalie when buying a home. Initially, I wanted to buy a fixer upper. Natalie has the capabilities to assist not only with my home purchase, but to help with renovating my home. What I loved about Natalie most is that she didn’t pressure me to get a house that needed renovating, she made sure to have my best interest at heart. I was very specific about what I needed. She knew when to hold my hand and when to let me do it on my own. I told her the area, price tag, and other specs needed. She saw a home, well actually two homes that somehow were not on my radar! I fell in love with BOTH. However, my husband was the deciding factor in which one we purchased. With her knowledge, she made sure not only did the contract and closing went well, but also that our negotiations went through great. We plan to stay in our home for a long while, but if things change; I am calling Natalie!
If you are looking for a real estate agent for Atlanta’s intown neighborhoods, look no further…. Natalie is knowledgeable, caring and (most importantly) calm under fire, even when navigating complex transactions. She always advocates for her client’s best interests, whether they are buying or selling. Highly recommended! – Dan Carney
“Natalie definitely went the extra mile for me, far exceeding the usual services of a realtor. Whatever needed to be done she did with cheerful enthusiasm. She even helped me buy a new couch! Also, Natalie is charming and easy to be with. Buying a house, or any property is stressful and time consuming. Natalie will make the process easier and more pleasant.” -Karen Sherrard
“We worked with Natalie to renovate and sell our first home. Her unique knowledge of design and local market trends was invaluable — with her guidance we were able to achieve a premium sale price for the house. She was a reliable partner through every part of the negotiation, and always ready to give straightforward advice when we needed it. Even with a very particular buyer, Natalie was able to work behind the scenes to assuage their fears and get us closed on time, all in a short time table. I would recommend Natalie unreservedly.” -Guy Wyant
“Kyle recently assisted me and my daughter on a purchase in Atlanta. We are very impressed with Kyle’s professionalism! This man knows how to listen to the needs of the client. He is a rock star agent in my book and I have been in the business for many years working with real estate professionals – I don’t impress easily! But Kyle, you have won my loyalty for future business in Atlanta, and Victoria and I will refer you as the expert to go to for Buying or Selling a home.”

Danielle helped us find our new home with the same ease and attention that she took when selling our previous home. We originally asked to stay in Johns Creek, but she knew that we needed something different. We are now proud members of the historic Norcross community. She made what could have been a difficult process, a piece of cake! – Karen C.
Danielle was well-informed and highly knowledgable about selling a home. She was professional even when handling the tough conversations about what updates and changes needed to be made to our home to receive at the best offer. She was patient and kind while helping us navigate the sale of our family’s home that we bought 20 years earlier.
Danielle did a great job helping us find our new home. She was always available, very attentive to all of our needs, and she managed to negotiate the price down for us. She knew the Atlanta area very well. We would definitely recommend her. – Artemisa H.

Danielle was a steady, well-informed agent with very sound judgment who helped us through a fast-paced homebuying experience. We had very limited capacity to engage in searching and viewing with two busy careers and an infant but she was flexible, responsive and made the most of our time by really understanding what we were looking for. She certainly had easier tasks than us but she treats all of her clients with respect and patience. Talk with her, you won’t regret it! – Isha A.
Danielle was diligent, responsive and had a great understanding of the Atlanta market. She helped me price my home well and sold it very quickly. Selling a home can be a stressful process but with Danielle it was quick and easy. I would recommend her to anyone. – Chris H.

Working with Danielle was great. She was very knowledgeable of the areas we were looking (Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven and Chamblee), and helped us find a great home. We were also impressed with her professionalism and patience with our multiple requests. I would highly recommend her for other potential buyers! – Kevin A.
Danielle found us the perfect home (seriously we were about to put the house hunt on ice for a while when we got in touch and I’m writing this from the first place she showed us) and was a grounded, calming presence during the whole process! Highly recommended! – Andrew B.
What a great experience! Danielle guided us through the home buying process so effortlessly that we didn’t feel uneducated even though, as first time home buyers, we definitely were. She explained all the steps of the process and was ready with answers any time we had questions. Danielle also spent time learning what we liked and found the perfect house for us in no time. – Sarah L.
Neighborhood Resident. Neighborhood Specialist. “We especially liked the fact that Melissa was a resident of the neighborhood. We realized that selling our home and buying another could be a very complicated process. But Melissa worked really hard to keep things on track and kept us all calm during the whole process. We still keep in touch with Melissa and are so happy in our new home. We would highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home – she helped us do both!” Ginny B. and Steve S. | Ormewood Park
Ginny Bonner and Steve Spence
On top of her game. “You want a Realtor who is honest, dependable and on top of their game. Melissa came recommended to me by a friend and I could not have been more thrilled to have worked with her. This was my first home to sell, and she had it under contract in 1 week! The whole process was smooth from start to finish. Buying or selling your home is a big decision and choosing a Realtor is so important. If you want it done right and to be completely taken care of…call Melissa Wakamo!” Meg D. | Grant Park
We whole-heartedly recommend Melissa! “We had a fantastic experience working with Melissa Wakamo to sell our home in Grant Park and purchase another in intown Atlanta. Having lived in Grant Park for over 11 years, we knew Melissa well and had watched over the years as she grew Red Robin Group into such an impressive organization. So, it was an easy decision for us to approach Melissa when we were ready for a move.” Jim and Melissa M. | Grant Park

“Champ made the entire home buying process easy, fun, & eye opening. From the initial discussion of possibly purchasing, right down to closing, Champ was an advocate for everything I wanted in a home, & he made sure I was comfortable & prepared for every possible speed bump. He didn’t waste a minute of my time, eliminating properties that had sketchy neighborhoods, driving out to an unfamiliar property at night to see what the neighborhood was like, factoring in my commute time, my budget, & my long list of demands, he managed to find the perfect house for me, and I saw it well before it even hit the market.
I thought that I would never find a place that had everything I wanted, but was proved wrong, Champ paid attention to every tiny little detail, and was budget conscious, thorough, & determined. His advice was always spot-on & I quickly learned that he is an incredibly trustworthy & genuine guy. If you want an honest, knowledgeable, & thoughtful individual to find or sell your home, Champ is your guy! I couldn’t be happier with my experience.”
Honest, knowledgeable, & thoughtful
Lauren is everything you want in a realtor; friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and hard working. It took us 4 months to find the right house, and at no time did Lauren make us feel rushed or pressured. She works with you all the way and takes the time to explain every step of the home buying process so that you can be confident. We ended up with a house we love at a price we can afford with minimal stress along the way, the end result speaks for itself.Robert F

I really appreciate her upfront and clear style, speedy responding, and positive and funny yet professional demeanor. Each step of the way, I felt confident that her intention was to help me find the perfect fit for me, not just to complete a deal. Linda is a STELLAR Realtor®, a real gem. Thanks Linda!”-Annie B.
