We've Moved To A New Decatur Location

We've already shared this with a many of you but thought we'd make the details known here on our blog just in case we've not talked personally about it.  If you don't already know, our t eam moved office locations this past week.

As part of a larger commitment, we've set out to reduce our impact on the environment in both our personal and business lives (of course, if you know my wife Jesse you know she's got our personal impact down to a minimum already).  So far this year we've taken on recycling at home and the office, car pooling whenever possible, installing CFL light bulbs, upgraded the efficiency of our HVAC systems, installed new windows and insulation in our homes and (as our leases run course) we're trading-up for more fuel efficient cars.

Top Producing Atlanta Realtors

Ben - my brother and the Buyer Specialist on my team for those that don't know - and I rank as top full service agents working the Oakhurst, East Lake and Kirkwood markets. In fact, from January 1st 2005 to August 30th 2006 we are ranked in the top 100 agents in the State for listings taken and homes sold! That's no small feat given there are over 38,000 licensed agents working the state of Georgia...

About Joshua Keen

Your Atlanta Realtors

Having worked for years under the guise of one the largest Mega-Brokerages in the world, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Joshua decided that it would be worth while to put his real estate and service expertise to better use.

Since that time he has worked closely with his staff to perfect a unique team based approach that guarantees your needs are handled immediately so that your home sells quickly and for top dollar. Joshua, and his brother Ben, are lead agents of The Keen Team.
