Introducing Red Robin Group, LLC – Atlanta’s Newest Real Estate Brokerage

After three years under the leadership and guidance of Keller Williams Realty Intown Atlanta, Melissa Wakamo and Rob Smith have taken their team to the next level. On Tuesday, July 28, 2010, Red Robin Group, LLC became the newest independent real estate brokerage in Georgia.

“We are excited to announce that we will be starting our own brokerage this week,” said Rob Smith in a statement to the leadership and associates of Keller Williams Realty Intown Atlanta. “After spending three years as a team at Keller Williams, we feel compelled to try it on our own for a while. We’ve enjoyed our time at Keller Williams, and our decision to leave is in no way a reflection on the company. In fact, this was a really tough decision because of the tremendous value, support and structure that Keller Williams has provided over the years.”

“I’m happy for their opportunity to grow with new experiences, but also sad that we’ll see less of them,” said Rick Hale, operating partner and managing broker at Keller Williams Realty Intown Atlanta. “They are great folks, have contributed generously while here, and I wish them the best as they embark on their next endeavor. And in my book, once KW family, always KW family.”

“We’re very excited about this transition,” said Melissa Wakamo. “To me, this is just the next logical step in our real estate careers. And we’re already busy putting enhanced systems, tools and resources in place so that our team can better serve our clients in the months and years ahead.”

Red Robin Group is already looking forward to quite a few other endeavors on the immediate horizon, such as:


    • Smarter marketing tactics for their seller clients, including the latest and greatest lead-capture systems


    • An enhanced, specialized team focused on better serving their buyer clients


    • A commitment to being a more eco-friendly company by becoming totally paperless by January 2012
