Thanksgiving Rings in the Holiday Spirit!

Macy-s-tree-lighting-2014As meals are gobbled up, friendly football games are played and the air turns crisp, it is time to deck the halls in Atlanta. Here are a few of the not-to-be-missed festivities in and around our neighborhoods!  Several new or slightly altered events will allow so many more to enjoy city lights!

The Macy’s at Lenox Tree Lighting was pushed ahead on the calendar four days! All the same music and festivities can be enjoyed this Sunday, November 22!
The brand new neighborhood addition of the Ponce City Market is celebrating their inaugural Holiday Spectacular and Tower Lighting ceremony next Saturday, November 28 from 3-8pm.  It will surely be a new must-do extravaganza with local choral groups serenading guests, artists, elf sightings and Santa lighting the Tower at 7pm.

The East Atlanta Village Santa Fest and Tree Lighting will be Saturday and Sunday, December 5-6! Have you gotten your spot to sit with Santa and share your Christmas wishes?

Grant Park’s Candlelight Tour of Homes is sure to please this year, December 12-13. The 35th annual Tour-Banner-2015-WordpressCandlelight obviously offers a magnificent tour of old and new homes perfectly decorated, but also includes a Winter Wonderland of crafts and Santa visits for the little ones, a market and bake sale, and a Christmas Concert by the St. Paul UMC’s Choir. This year also brings a VIP Sip-Sational wine tasting experience at Bennett’s Market before the Tour!

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.
