Only a few weeks ago a neighborhood sandwich shop that was owned and managed by a local family closed it’s doors for the last time.  Many East Atlanta, Ormewood Park and Grant Park residents were saddened by the news and many of those same people, like myself am wondering what the future holds for this prime location.


The building at 792 Moreland Avenue was purchased by Bright Venture Holdings, LLC in June.   So, this begs the question:

What will the new owners do with the property?  Are there any neighbors who have information on plans for this building?  If so, please feel leave your comments here! 

What do you think? Of course we all have ideas about what we’d like to see go into the space.  Recognizing that any development should be in line with the approved guidelines for Moreland Ave, what would you like to see on this parcel in the neighborhood?  Feel free to email us your thoughts or join in on the discussion on our Facebook page

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.
