With passion and enthusiasm for the Atlanta marketplace, Marcus Aurelius Shannon joins First United Realty as a seasoned, Licensed Real Estate Agent. Marcus' interest in Real Estate started while he was still in High School, earning money at part time jobs to attend Real Estate seminars while his friends were off surfing the California coast. Although he had major successes in finance and accounting, even spending years working at CNN, Turner Entertainment and SunTrust Mortgage it wasn't until he decided to go into Real Estate he finally realized what his family and friends had known all along.
Marcus believes it is extremely important to navigate his clients through the real estate process based on their unique needs. By taking time to sit down with his clients and paying special attention to their location, size, and budget requirements, Marcus is able to conduct exceptional online and in-field market research to match his clients with their most ideal homes.
His attitude and willingness to assist has helped him create relationships within the real estate community that lead to cooperation and smooth transactions with cooperating Brokers. Because they respect and trust his professionalism, and because they know he will work diligently to overcome obstacles, other agents are eager to show his listings - and listing agents encourage sellers to strongly consider his buyers offer.
Sellers experience Marcus' unique, proven, cutting-edge systems to get them maximum dollar. Marcus also believes "The Right Home Sells Itself" and his buyers are treated with zero sales pressure. Marcus likens a real estate transaction to an airplane ride - you're apt to run into turbulence. However, with Marcus in the captain's seat and his team as the flight crew, you'll have the skill and experience on your side to avoid the turbulence and enjoy the ride. But knowledge, systems, and skills are not the most important reasons why clients enjoy working with him. The most important reason is trust.
Marcus has dedicated his career to serving clients for life. As a result, most of his clients come to him by referral from friends, family, and happy past clients. They refer to him without reservation because they know they can trust him to give his honest opinion, even if it means "No sale." They know they can trust him to protect his clients with a "win-win" or "no deal" way of negotiating, and to work tirelessly to solve any problems, while keeping the Golden Rule in mind.
