ATLANTA/VININGS  – Two family-oriented firms have allied to present Atlantans and newcomers with the opportunity to live at The Aberdeen, the elegantly refined high-rise manor inspired by the rich Scottish heritage of Taz Anderson’s Highland clan. 

Taz Anderson, the former Georgia Tech football star and founder of Taz Anderson Realty Company, and his son, Geoff Anderson, firm president, have tapped Jenny Pruitt, co-founder and CEO of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty, and her son-in-law and company president David Boehmig, to exclusively market The Aberdeen, the 14-story luxury residential environment and English-style gardens, atop a 3-acre hill crest at 2931 Paces Ferry Road in Vinings.   

“Our SkyRise Group, an innovation of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty, will lead the sales and marketing of this extraordinary residence,” Jenny Pruitt announced.  “SkyRise Group Senior Vice President Mike Bugg, along with Vice President Anne Schwall and Director of Sales Marcia White, are proven experts in the sales of the finest high-rise homes, from Midtown to Vinings.”

“The Aberdeen, where European traditional design and skyline views are complemented by a complete continuum of luxury services, from 24-hour concierge attention to amenities including a putting green and golf academy, Bocce Ball court, beautiful salt water heated pool with sun shelf, state-of-the-art fitness center, Picnic Pavilion and nature trails, offers an unrivaled lifestyle,” Jenny Pruitt added. 

Referring to its location, she noted, “As a Vinings resident myself, I can vouch that one of the distinct advantages of this close-in historic village is Cobb County’s dramatically lower tax structure.”

Submitted by Tina Hunsicker, REALTOR®, Founding Partner

While I sell homes all throughout metro Atlanta, my primary focus is helping buyers and sellers with homes in Vinings.

I live in Vinings and as a REALTOR®, have a comprehensive understanding of the Vinings real estate market.  Below are a couple of interesting bits of trivia for Vinings. 

  • Only one home over $1 million has gone under contract since July 2008, it is a contingent sale. 
  • No homes in Vinings have closed in the past 8 months over $1 million. 
  • Almost half of the sales under $1 million in Vinings were foreclosures in the past 8 months. 
    Data from FMLS.

Vinings is in zip code 30339.  It is in Cobb County, resting west of I-75 and I-285 in metro  Atlanta. Known for beautiful homes, affordable taxes, and easy access to Buckhead, downtown, and other areas of Atlanta, Vinings is a desirable place for many to call home.

Tina Hunsicker is a REALTOR® with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty.  She is in the Top 5% of Atlanta Realtors for 2008, and in the top five agents with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty.
