Ann Finley


How do you pick your agent?  

Do you look at their sales numbers and credentials, or look for the person behind the numbers?

Here is a little about me, and why you want me to be your agent:

My previous careers, both at Emory University and as an independent artist, allow me to bring some unique skills to the table.  My counseling background helps me listen to what you are saying (or not saying) and reason through emotional decisions.  My creative talents allow me to come up with unique ways to present and market your home. As a mom to 2 dogs and 2 cats it is easy for me to understand the priority you place on your pet's needs when searching for a home.

In addition, I will work hard for you, and will tell you the truth – not what you want to hear.  I am organized, thorough, and anticipate your needs.

In short, I will handle your transaction the way I want all mine to be handled.

Why real estate?

The first two home purchases I made could not have gone worse.  My agents were not helpful, and at times, even difficult to reach.  I thought real estate transactions were destined to be stressful, awful experiences.  When I purchased my third house (with a different realtor,) I was amazed at how easy the process was.  I promised myself I would be that realtor.

A little about me:

I grew up in Dumont, NJ, received a BA from Rutgers University, and an M.Ed in Counseling from the College of New Jersey.  My first job was at Emory University, where I worked for 18 years.  I left Emory to start IronCraft Folk Art, and made steel sculpture. After 10 years, I sold that business to become a jeweler, participating in art festivals around the country.  After another 8 years, I became tired of the travel, got my real estate license, and here I am…..

I stay involved in the arts by volunteering with the Atlanta Dogwood Arts Festival and Decatur Arts Festival, and will occasionally show my work.

I am a the coordinator of the Laurel Ridge/Shamrock Civic Association's Neighborhood Watch.

I have always loved animals, and created a line of jewelry called Barking Cat® Jewelry, which I use to help non-profit rescue groups raise funds.  My children are furry – 2 dogs, 2 indoor cats, and 2 outdoor feral cats that I have been trying to domesticate, for 6 years so far.

I also like music.  In my spare time, I play keyboards, guitar, and saxophone (although I'm really bad at the sax.)  I don't inflict my music on anyone except for a small group that gathers weekly in the comforts of someone's home. 

So, that's it

When you work with me, you work with someone who cares about making sure you have all the information you need to make good decisions and have a stress free transaction.

"Ann did a wonderful job helping me buy my first house. Although what I was looking for was a little out of the ordinary (a farm house with land), she absolutely rose to the challenge and worked really hard to make sure I saw lots of houses and doing lots of research. Once I had found the one, was relentless to help me buy it. We are forever grateful! I would recommend Ann in a heartbeat!"

  -R. Geiger, Client

"Ann is the best realtor I could have asked for to handle the sale of my home. She is knowledgeable, involved, professional, detail oriented, and yet very easy to work with. I simply could not have asked for a more competent or better realtor to represent my interest and facilitate my home sales. Her years of experience are evident, and if you are lucky enough to work with her, you can look forward to a smooth, successful sale!!!"

  -S. Shockey, Client

"Ann is an amazing real estate agent. She knows the Atlanta area real well, she is also very easy to work with. She made the whole process seem very easy and it was a great pleasure to work with her. She was proactive throughout the process and very organized. For people like us who have a million other things going on besides buying a house, she was very proactive and made sure everything was done in order. She would track everything and go out of her way to get answers which were clearly outside her remit. She ALWAYS had our best interest in mind, and was willing to work 24 hours a day to make sure we were taken care of."

  -P. Salwan, Client

"We put the house on the market on a Friday afternoon and had an offer that evening, two back up offers by Saturday. My house sold for full asking price, and the buyer paid closing costs. Ann is smart. She’s also a team player with an impressive network of friends in her business. These connections helped every step of the way. She enjoys her work, and she works hard! Lastly, Ann is ethical. Her genuine desire to do the best for me, her client, meant that I had very little to do. She made selling my home easy."
