Breaking News! East Atlanta Village Road Work

Just in time for the East Atlanta Strut, we caught construction workers milling around on Flat Shoals Road in the village this morning.  More than a dozen hard hat workers in neon yellow vests were digging up the sidewalks, hauling away dirt and rubble.  We watched drivers slow down at the intersection and curiously wonder what was going on in their neighborhood. 

Wakamo & Associates had an opportunity to interview the foreman on the project and this is what we found out.  The project is part of the City of Atlanta “Trip Hazard and Handicap Sidewalk Accessibility” program.  The East Atlanta Village along flat shoals will have new Handicap ramps at every intersection and all uneven and broken pavement will be replaced or repaired from the Glenwood Ave and Flat Shoals Rd intersection all the way to the Ormewood Ave and Flat Shoals Rd intersection.

This phase of the project will be completed within the next three to six weeks.  Which means that all you runners, joggers, and walkers will have a much safer sidewalk leading into the village.

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.
