12th Annual Grant Park Summer Shade Festival – Weekend Wrap Up

The 12th annual, Grant Park Summer Shade Festival has already come and gone but the memories, music and the fun will be talked about for many months ahead!  Between the high temperatures and the humidity, summer festivals in Atlanta can feel like a swamp on the surface of the sun.  Luckily, the Grant Park Neighborhood Association and the Conservancy put on a very well thought out event, with plenty of water stations and even cooling stations with cold water misting.  

Red Robin Group’s Realtors and Staff handed out over 1,500 Balloons and over 1000 temporary tattoos to the children and adults who attended the festival this weekend.  From a 2 month old’s first balloon, to a one year old’s first temporary tattoo, the memories and smiles were fantastic.  

Some of our favorite vendors were the “Cold Keurig,”  “The Ponce City Market” and the Mini Guitar builder who builds guitars from Cigar boxes, how cool!

When Melissa Wakamo began her real estate career in 2004, her goal was to focus on her immediate area and get to know her neighbors. "I've had a lot of fun over the years helping my neighbors sell their homes and helping newcomers become a part of our community."

Melissa quickly became one of metro Atlanta's top producing agents and consistently performed in the top 1% of all Atlanta agents. By 2009, Melissa's real estate team had grown to include several agents and support staff, dedicated to providing exceptional service to buyers and sellers in Atlanta's intown neighborhoods.

In 2010, Melissa transitioned Red Robin REALTORS® into an independently owned boutique brokerage. Even in the tough real estate market during that time, Red Robin REALTORS® continued to outperform other small brokerages and was able to help buyers and sellers adapt to the rapid changes in the market.

In 2017, Melissa had the opportunity to merge the Red Robin REALTORS team with another like-minded boutique brokerage, Keller Knapp Realty. The two community-focused organizations bring together more than 100 agents, including 3 of the top 10 agents in metro Atlanta. With offices in Oakhurst, Ormewood Park and Midtown, Keller Knapp Realty and Red Robin REALTORS team are the top boutique real estate firm in Atlanta.

In her role as Managing Broker, Melissa provides agent training, marketing and strategic oversight for the Brokerage, ensuring that the brokerage maintains its focus and commitment to the intown market.

Melissa's active participation in various neighborhood organizations and charitable efforts, as well as her passion for antiques, cooking, and gardening, keep her busy and in touch with the community.
