Erin was our agent for the sale of our home, for leasing a temporary home, and for the purchase of our current home. We feel so lucky to have had Erin as our agent because she really understands the in-town market, and in particular the nuances of our neighborhood where we were selling our home in Ansley Park and where we ultimately purchased our new home in Morningside. We had some bumps along the way, and Erin always handled every issue with confidence and professionalism. She was somehow always available when we needed her and we feel very good about the outcome of both the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new home.

Ashley was able to find our perfect home in less than a week. Professional and very knowledgeable, she was very responsive and supportive during the entire process. She began by listening to us as we described what we wanted and concentrated on properties and amenities in the areas that we were interested in. As we looked at properties, she was careful to point out various details to us but left the decision making process in our hands.
As first time buyers, we were unsure of the process but Ashley was extremely patient and sweet. She was always on top of everything and took great care of us!

Ashley and Erin were my agents for both the purchase of my new home and the listing (for lease/sale) of my prior home. They did a fantastic job and were excellent to work with. They were highly knowledgeable, very proactive, and professional. From obtaining feedback on the showings of my former home, to identifying homes in my target neighborhood to view (sometimes before they even hit the MLS lists), to helping me navigate the purchase of my new home, Ashley and Erin were on top of it all!
Buying, selling, and leasing real estate can be complicated, so I was glad I could rely on their knowledge and expertise to help me through the process. They always made me feel like I was their top priority, even though I know they had other clients too (many of whom were buying and selling homes of much greater value than mine). Before working with Ashley and Erin, I had used another real estate agent and had a disappointing experience. I know what bad looks like and what good looks like when it comes to real estate agents, and Ashley and Erin are what good looks like! I will definitely use them again for all of my future real estate needs, and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of an agent!
My wife and I can’t thank Erin enough for ushering us through the process of purchasing our first home following our move from NYC to Atlanta. Her knowledge of the intown Atlanta market as well as her ability to both listen and comprehend what we wanted and needed in our place of residence was greatly appreciated. We started our home search process as a couple but soon became a couple expecting our first child. Erin was equally well equipped to assist us in both scenarios and more than willing alter our game plan. What’s more, her enthusiasm and patience made her a joy to work with, so much so that we consider Erin not only our agent (for this and our next house) but also a friend.
It will come as no surprise to anyone that Erin Yabroudy was highly recommended to us by some dear friends that were helping us get acclimated from our move to Atlanta from New York 4 years ago. Novices to the home buying process Erin was not only patient with us, but also extremely helpful with her knowledge of the different areas we wanted to consider, and various considerations that we would have to take into account before we settled on our final choice of homes. I remember many late night conference calls and emails, many site visits, and lots of time explaining the nuances of financing, inspections, construction, escrows etc etc. Over a 3-4 month period Erin become a trusted confidant to us, not only on home purchase issues, but also on so many other things that two newcomers to Atlanta needed insight on: Schools, gardeners, handymen, nannies … the list goes on and on. Not once did she make us feel like we were a burden or nuisance, though I’m sure we weren’t her least demanding clients. Through it all, Erin, the consummate professional, was just as passionate at helping us into our new home as we were, and that made the process that much easier. We loved the home we settled on, and all credit that is due is owed to Erin and her hard work. We were so pleased with her work product that when it came time to sell the house it was not even a question who we wanted to represent us. And true to form, in a tough market, Erin helped us get our house sold in a mere 2.5 months. Erin is more than our real estate agent, he has become a trusted friend, and we have enjoyed getting to know her and family outside of work, and have no hesitations at all recommending her to anyone that is looking for the best in class service when it comes to buying or selling a home.

Erin and her team are truly miracle workers! When I began the process of selling my home, I went through a never ending list of hopes and desires ranging from timing to school districts and financial constraints. Erin worked through every single aspect of the process with me, she tackled all my challenges head on and accomplished every single desire I threw at her in regards to the selling of my old home and the buying of my new home! Erin and her team continually went above and beyond the call of duty, helping me schedule maintenance for my home on the market, and worked with the sellers agent on my new home to coordinate endless appointments with contractors. I truly could not have asked for a more diligent approach to this huge life event. Erin and her team understand how stressful the buying and selling of a home can be for their clients and they do everything in their power to make the process an easy, stress free one. I appreciated the fact that I always felt that Erin and her team were in total control and that I was always in the best of hands. I could not have been more pleased with my experience and I cannot imagine ever wanting to work with anyone else.
As empty nesters looking to relocate from the suburbs to midtown Atlanta, Erin quickly developed an understanding of our preferences in location, size and style.
We saw many homes, all of which were in line with our taste and budget. After finding one home we liked and making an unsuccessful offer, Erin was able to locate an even better opportunity for us. Erin provided sound advice on location, value and construction quality.
After moving into our new home in Ansley Park, Erin and her family were very helpful getting us involved socially in the neighborhood. We had several other issues related to the relocation over the next few months that Erin assisted with the resolution. We would highly recommend Erin to anyone interested in relocating to the midtown area of Atlanta.

Most people would agree that selling a house ranks very high on a list of life’s most stressful experiences, particularly in the 2009 market. Kevin McGlynn immediately took that stress away. His incredible attention to detail in getting my Ansley Park house ready to sell, listing and attracting interest in the house, and negotiating a price comfortable to both buyer and seller made all the difference.
Having lived intown for 30 years, Kevin’s involvement in community groups and activities, as well as the neighborhood schools, helps him to really understand what makes this area special. Kevin’s skills, knowledge, contacts, and ease with people made him the perfect agent. Thank you Kevin!
My wife and I purchased a home in Morningside in August, and we could not have done it without the help and guidance of Kevin McGlynn. It turned out to be a particularly difficult process with the Seller, and Kevin’s expertise and persistence were the deciding factors.
My wife and I have bought and sold eight homes in six different states, so we know what a difference professional expertise and client service can make. Kevin communicated with us on a daily basis – night and day – and we were able to close in a most difficult environment. Thank you Kevin!
I just wanted to let you both know how much Julie and I appreciate all that you both have done. This certainly wasn’t an easy or a routine transaction but the way you both went above and beyond to represent your respective party exemplifies why the two of you are so successful and more importantly respected. Your guidance, patience, empathy, hand holding and the occasional much needed push to maintain progress is very uncommon but it is the sole reason why our deal was finally able to be completed today.
Saying thanks to both of you doesn’t seem to be adequate, however please know that you both have our admiration and gratitude. We wish you both continued success and while we will do everything possible to refer business in your direction. Always feel free to use us as a reference.

Dear Ms. Beacham,
My fiancée and I closed on our first home today in the Virginia Highlands.
Let me rewind …
In January Andrea and I set out on a quest to find the perfect home in which to start our new lives together. After researching on the Internet for realtors with experience in the Va. Highlands area and calling around, we toured our first home with a RE/MAX agent who immediately turned us off for various reasons. The next day I spoke with my father who lives in Greensboro, NC telling him this and he asked if I wanted him to contact Jerry Attkisson, someone he had recently met at a Christmas party in Greensboro and who was apparently very involved in Atlanta real estate.
Jerry’s reply to my father’s inquiry was:
Van, I’m back in Atlanta and have given some thought to the right agent to help Troy in his hunt for a house. First, I would like to meet Troy and his fiancée and learn more about what they are looking for and areas they would consider. My top recommendation for an agent is Erin Yabroudy and if that is a fit I will introduce her to you. Give me a call or email and let me know when you are available and suggest a place to meet.
Rudely enough I bypassed Jerry and immediately gave Erin a call and we were off seeing houses the next day.
Fast forward to today …
Erin is a wonderful, caring, and delightful person with whom we fully expect to remain friends for years to come. In a professional light, Erin’s expertise of the buying process, the market, and investment approach was stellar and we could not have been more pleased … HONESTLY.
We were lucky enough to attend the Beacham open house to tour Erin’s new luxury workspace and your beautiful office. It does not seem possible to Andrea and I, but if Erin is able to provide the same experience for her other clients as she has provided us, Beacham & Co. is in for some big awards.
We recently bought our new home in Buckhead with Erin Yabroudy’s help and were extremely impressed with her professionalism and client service throughout the transaction. Her market knowledge, negotiating skills, scheduling flexibility, and attention to detail are all top notch.
She helped us very efficiently scan the market, understand our options, find our dream home, and negotiate a good deal better than any other Realtor we’ve ever worked with.
Chip and Monica Perry
On a personal and professional basis, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Erin on both the sale of our former home and the purchase of our new home.
Erin worked very hard for us and was always available to meet our demands. She has great business sense and is one of the most personable individuals I have ever met.
With the support of Beacham & Company behind her, you could not choose anyone better to help you find a home or sell your current residence.

You have been an invaluable resource to my father and my family in this process of selling the house he has lived in for 48 years. We hired you to sell our dad’s house because of your stellar reputation, your knowledge of our neighborhood, and your track record of successful sales. We would hire you again for all those reasons, but also because of your warm and good-humored disposition, your sensitivity to each particular circumstance and your boundless energy.
Leon, Elise, Jana and Harlan Eplan
I would recommend Erin to anyone looking for a bright, professional and hardworking real estate agent. She managed the entire sale process for us from start to finish after we had moved to Ohio. In the very difficult 2009 market, she was able to attract buyers and achieve a price point that significantly exceeded our corporate buyout appraisals and our expectations.
Chief Financial Officer
My wife and I recently purchased a house using Erin as our agent. We had been looking for some time on our own and did not have any luck. A friend of ours recommended Erin Yabroudy and she really helped us focus in on the type of home with which we would be most satisfied. Once we started with her our search became much easier.
It was really helpful to have some who knows the Atlanta area so well and also is very experienced with buying homes. One of the aspects that was appealing to me was that she was in no rush to get her sale done. She was extremely efficient and made our home buying process much easier, but she honestly seemed to be more concerned with making sure that we got the home that would make us the happiest.
I think she is an excellent real estate agent and I recommend her without reservation.
Chris Haraszti, M.D.
When we started the search for our first home, we considered representing ourselves. Upon further reflection on the potential complexities of a home purchase, we decided to use an agent; we are very glad that we did, and that Erin was that agent. Especially as first time home buyers, it was invaluable to have someone with Erin’s experience and knowledge. She is very familiar with the neighborhoods where we were focusing our search, and was a great resource in managing the contract negotiation, due diligence period, and even post-closing matters such as recommendations for home improvement contractors.
Through the whole process, even during the stressful times, Erin was patient, energetic, responsive and friendly (and she has a great sense of humor!). While on more than one occasion we came close to signing a contract before deciding to change direction, we never felt any pressure from Erin to do anything other than find the right house for us at the right price for us. She was thoroughly invested in making us comfortable with the process and achieving a result that would make us happy and give us peace of mind.
We really enjoyed working with her and getting to know her personally, and would recommend her without reservation to others looking for a real estate agent in the Atlanta area.

I just want to say that it was a pleasure to get to know you, and I appreciate the way you and your staff worked so enthusiastically and consistently to get our apartment sold during a time when there were so many available in the neighborhood. Our best wishes for the future.
Gwyn and Paul Webb
I worked with Erin on the purchase of my first home, and I really appreciated the patience, understanding, and advice she provided during the process. Her input and support was vital in the negotiation and closing, and she was there for me every step along the way. To this day, I was and am happy with the home she helped pick out for me to start my family.
She has also provided support after my purchase in efforts to refinance, which I truly appreciate because she didn’t have to assist. I highly recommend her to any purchaser, and my wife and I will definitely use her services when we are looking to sell our current home and find a new one.

Buying our home was a big decision and investment for us. Erin was terrific throughout the process of identifying a house that fit our needs, negotiating a price that worked for us, and providing the support necessary to get it closed.
We were very happy with her service and professionalism. She is a first-class agent.
Wick and Gardiner Garrard
Managing Partner, Total Technology Ventures
My husband and I probably bought a house during one of the most stressful times in our lives. We were expecting our first baby, we lived in Boston and were relocating back to Atlanta for first real job out of training. We had to do a lot of “looking” over the Internet and from afar, not to mention this was all in our first year of marriage.
Needless to say, it was not an easy feat. Erin was so good at helping us navigate this situation. She was easygoing when we were not and she was firm when we needed a gentle nudge to get the process moving. She was always available to answer the endless list of questions that came up and she even offered to show my parents, who lived locally, houses while we were not available to be in town.
I had a very good experience buying my first house and I attribute most of that to Erin’s expertise, patience and guidance. We even manage to stay friends to this day. Not many can say that for their Realtor!
Dr. Andrew and Molly Sipp
Erin was the consummate professional throughout the entire selling process. She really came through in the final days approaching closing when a neighbor raised an urgent issue that threatened the whole deal. Erin stepped in and mediated between the neighbors and buyers. She handled the entire negotiation and allowed us to close successfully in a way that protected the interest of all parties. It was a stressful situation, but Erin worked through it on our behalf. She was responsive, entirely competent, and helped us reach an agreement that we believe would not have been possible in the short time frame without her stepping in to manage the situation.
Christopher and Shannon McManus
My husband and I thought we already knew who was going to be our real estate agent, that is until we stopped by an open house and met Erin Yabroudy. We were so impressed with her that we immediately decided that we wanted her to be our agent.
Erin was incredibly professional and knowledgeable. As we started the process of both listing our home and looking for a new home, she guided us easily on the way. I appreciated her sound advice from the beginning. She suggested a very competitive listing price for our home and we had an offer within 10 days of going onto the market. We relied on her experience in the negotiating process as well as during the inspection period. It was a comforting feeling knowing that someone with Erin’s experience was helping us in this process.
Erin was always available to answer our questions. She always made us feel like we were her number one priority. I whole-heartedly recommend Erin to anyone who may need a real estate agent. Her poise, professionalism, knowledge and experience are second to none.
Jennifer and Edward Godfrey
Erin is the consummate professional. Her connections and intimate knowledge of the area in which we were looking allowed us to find a property before it was listed, saving us time and money.
Erin’s experience and sound advice take the anxiety out of what can otherwise be a stressful process. We recommend Erin without qualification.
Mike and Carrie Raeber
Partner, King & Spalding
We are grateful to Erin for providing us with much needed guidance as we bought a new home and sold our old one in a very short time frame. We have told acquaintances and friends many times that we could not have done it without her. She seamlessly guided us through the process, always available to manage and complete the next step along the way, offering valuable advice and strategy.
She made what could have been a very stressful time a pleasant one. We would highly recommend her to others in the real estate market.
Dr. Thomas McGahan, MD and Lauren McGahan
Selling a home can be a trying experience in this economic climate, but Erin Yabroudy was the right agent for our needs. Erin understood our goals and worked patiently to help us prepare our house for maximum buyer appeal. She then worked tirelessly to market our home and to use her wide array of personal contacts to attract those potential home buyers most likely to have an interest in our neighborhood, our architecture, and our price range.
Erin was focused, innovative, and dogged in her pursuit of potential purchasers, who she then skillfully helped to see the value and envision the unique promise our house presented for their dreams. While selling a house is often an unpleasant experience, ours was both satisfactory and rewarding. Not only did Erin find the right buyer at a satisfactory price, but we gained a fantastic new friend as part of the bargain.
James and Terri Coil

Erin is just a fantastic real estate agent. As a first-time home buyer with a variety of preconceived notions and expectations, my house-hunting process took an extraordinarily long time, but Erin never wavered — she stuck with me throughout and was just as determined as I was to find the perfect house for me.
I bought my home in Haynes Manor and I found that Erin’s knowledge about in-town real estate as well as her connections in the Atlanta residential real estate market gave me great confidence in her abilities. She was always professional, kind and patient. I was also amazed by Erin’s responsiveness — no matter how small my question about either the process or a particular property, she usually answered promptly and always the same day (even if the answer came via email at midnight).
Erin is a delightful person and I’m so glad that she was my real estate agent, because we became friends during the house-hunting process. I have recommended Erin to someone in my company who was moving here from out of state, and I would not hesitate to continue to recommend her to anyone seeking to buy a home in Atlanta.
Executive Vice President, Unisource Worldwide, Inc.
Throughout the course of career, I’ve had over seven relocations and have worked with a great number of relocation services and realtors. My experience with Erin Yabroudy and Beacham and Company was truly different.
Moving to a new area, it’s easy to make mistakes in choosing areas and houses, when you become emotionally attached to a particular property. Erin asked all the right questions to fully understand precisely what we were looking for in an area and in the right house. As she’s extremely knowledgeable of Atlanta and the most desirable in-town neighborhoods, she helped us find the perfect house for our family!
John A. Glaze
President, Unisource Worldwide Inc.
We first met Erin at a property she had listed and quickly connected with her. We were “casual lookers” happy with our current home, but just looking every so often to keep our options open. Erin was the consummate professional as we worked together over the next many months. She gave candid, constructive comments about locations and neighborhoods. She listened to us and our needs and searched out potential homes that fit our ideas. Many agents would have given up and said “they aren’t serious,” but Erin would always call if she saw a property she thought might be interesting.
At the end of the day we are in our perfect (and I mean perfect) home. It was a complicated purchasing process but Erin stayed on top of the whole deal and all went smoothly. I have and will continue to sing her praises to our friends. We saw some fantastic potential homes, we love the house we bought, and with her professional guidance it was a happy experience.
