Demand: February residential sales were at 3,246, an increase of 6.1% from the previous year.

Price:  Average and median sales prices continue to gain traction and outpace 2015’s figures, with positive gains. The median sales price in February was $216,000, an increase of 4.4% from last February. The average sales price was $273,000, up 4.6% from the previous year.

Supply: Atlanta area housing inventory totaled 13,046 units in February, a decrease of 4.2% from February 2015. New listings totaled 4,196, up 5.6% from February 2015 and up 2.3% from the previous month. The supply for sales over a 12 month period declined to 3.0 months.

A Word from 2016 ABR President Lane McCormack: “The February report proves that the housing market is in great shape for 2016. The steady increase in prices is anticipated with the tight inventory supply in Atlanta. We are expecting this upward trend to continue, both in price and sales as we progress through spring.”

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.
