Nov 15 | 4th Annual “Holiday Lights” at Atlanta Botanical Gardens

The spectacular fourth annual “Garden Lights, Holiday Nights” returns with hot new colors that will blaze a festive trail through the Atlanta Botanical Garden.


“This is one of my personal favorite light shows in Atlanta! A must see.” —Melissa Wakamo, Realtor/Broker


This contemporary holiday light show features more than 1.5 million energy-efficient LED lights, and this year marks a major transformation in color schemes: the emphasis is blazing reds, brilliant oranges and sizzling yellows. Three towering cone trees ablaze in red and yellow will beckon visitors to the heart of the show. Just past them, the Crape Myrtle Allee will burst into flames of red, orange and yellow – evoking the warm, cozy comfort of a glowing hearth. At the allee’s opposite end, the Howell Fountain cone tree will create a seemingly infinite constellation of traditional red and green within its watery reflection. 


Next stop is the Great Lawn where washes of warm colors emanate from the flashy Orchestral Orbs, dancing to a new selection of holiday music and choreography for another show-stopping performance by this visitor favorite. In the Perennial Garden, be sure to discover the new romantic hot spot under the mistletoe ball arch.

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.
