Dan Buccini
Senior Real Estate Consultant


Dan relocated back to Atlanta in 2001, fulfilling a twenty five year
dream to return to the city that kept "Georgia on his mind". Dan had
left Atlanta to take control of sales and marketing for Dillard's and Lord and Taylor's specialty salons in Dallas. After increasing the business
seven fold, Dan was transferred to San Francisco to manage the
marketing of the salons in the Neiman Marcus chain. A sales
opportunity with West Coast Beauty Supply and Reid and Sibel Beauty
Supply resulted in a promotion to Vice President of Sales where Dan
managed a sales force of forty five sales representatives.

After twenty five years of retail management experience, Dan formed
his own company, a multi-store chain of salons and retail beauty centers
in San Francisco and Oakland. Dan credits the success of his company
to his ability to "listen and understand" the needs of individual clients
and to respond directly to those needs. Customer service was the base
he built both his business and reputation on in the bay area. A loyal and
repeat client base grew his company over a fifteen year period. The sale
of his company afforded him the opportunity to return to his favorite

Dan received his Georgia Real Estate License in February 2002 and his Associate Broker License in March 2015. He brings with him a time tested skill set in sales and marketing, grounded in customer service and individual client satisfaction. Coupled with his knowledge of the in-town and surrounding areas, you will find his
dedication to both his clients and his Real Estate practice a truly
positive experience.

Joan Golding
Senior Real Estate Consultant

I have worked in a real estate since 1983, with my ex-husband who was the CPA partner in an income tax and real estate brokerage firm in New York City.  Professionally I also used my master’s degree to work in media, marketing and communication, and later in higher education.

I moved to Atlanta in 1987, and spent weekends driving around the perimeter, visiting open houses, and model homes in new home developments. It was a good way to get to know the city, and what the housing market had to offer.  I throughly enjoyed those explorations.  Now I do the same thing to work for my clients, as a licensed Georgia agent. 

I recently turned my focus to working as a condo specialist. This is an exciting time to be in Atlanta, a trending metropolis, which has seen immense growth ever since we became an international city in 1996.  I feel lucky to be a part of the amazing transformation happening here, since nowhere is there better evidence of the highest standards of living in the U.S., than in the beautiful soaring residential architiecture over the uptown, midtown, and downtown metro area, in the high rises Above Atlanta.

Are you looking to move out of the suburbs?  Are you single, or an empty nester?  Do you want to upgrade, downsize?  Is upscale living your flavor? Consider living more efficiently: enjoy the security of high-rise living. Take an elevator downstairs to the gym.  No long communtes, and bumper-to-bumper traffic, no lawns to mow.  Reduce your gas budget and use it to live in health everyday, walk to restaurants, to concerts in the park.  Go shopping, to lunch, to church and to world-class entertainment.  Meet new friends.  Did you move here to work in the city, or do you want to invest in an affordable, expanding real estate market?   

Give me a call.  I look forward to serving you!
