This morning Melissa Wakamo and Krish Dhokia, of Red Robin Group had an opportunity to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening of the East Side trail of the Atlanta BeltLine. 

With the spirit of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership’s emphasis on health, a fitness walk  took place after the ribbon cutting by B98.5 on-air personality Madison James.

“The Gateway will be a huge benefit to the surrounding area,” said Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. “The success of the Eastside Trail and Historic Fourth Ward Park demonstrate Atlanta’s desire for walkability and greenspace, and connecting these two projects will expand the impact they have already had on transforming our City’s landscape and mobility.”

The Eastside Trail Gateway is made possible by generous contributions from donors to the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, including: a friend of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership; the R. Howard Dobbs, Jr. Foundation; the John N. Goddard Foundation; and the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation. The Trust for Public Land secured the 0.76 acre property to preserve it for public use. The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership successfully raised private funds through its Capital Campaign for the land acquisition, design and construction of this project.

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.
