We polled the agents at Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty to see how long our REALTORS® have lived in the metro Atlanta area.


While all our agents have a strong love for our city and a great knowledge base of metro Atlanta’s many neighborhoods and areas, 29% of our agents are native Atlantans.

Here’s the breakdown for how long our agents have lived in metro Atlanta:

29% – “Forever“; they were born here

37% – Many would call this group “native” too because they have been here for more than 20 years

15% – 16-20 years.  This group was here for Super Bowl XXVIII in the Georgia Dome.

9% – 11-15 years. This group enjoyed the Centennial Olympic Games, held in Atlanta.

6% – 7-10 years.  In 2001, Mayor Shirley Franklin was elected Atlanta’s first female African-American mayor.  Also,  this group was here for NCAA men’s and women’s final four basketball tournaments.

1% – less than 7 years. This group saw the opening of the Georgia Aquarium, the High Museum of Art’s three-year partnership with Musée du Louvre.
