The home buyer’s information is confidential, of course, but if you are considering a sale you can peruse the map to see if we already have a buyer that fits your home. If so, you can then connect directly with the buyer’s agent to get your home sale underway. Additionally, if you are a frustrated home buyer who is still searching for the perfect place, reach out to one of our agents to get pre-qualified and we can get you on our Home Buyer Inventory.

What People Are Saying…
“Scott Talley and 5Market Realty are top notch. Scott is the living and breathing example of honesty, integrity, professionalism and knowledge. Communication was EXCELLENT during the entire process. We had a unique situation and Scott truly excelled and exceeded our expectations. We are moving out of state. Scott made sure everyone interested in our property knew we would close but needed to stay for almost two months after closing. I’ve had 16 real estate transactions in my lifetime and I’m fairly confident no other agent could have gotten out done. If you respect and expect professionalism, honesty, integrity, communication and knowledge of the market, Scott Talley and the team at 5Market Realty are the ones to select. I’ve been in retail and customer service for 48 years and I appreciate true professionals. To sum it up…….SIMPLY THE BEST!!!”Martin Bruno
“Jeb was amazing! He was just what we needed: not pushy, not driving us around to a bunch of houses we didn’t want to see, only showing us properties he knew we would like. He took the time to get to know us, and used that information to tailor our experience to our needs… He’s a strong negotiator, not afraid to get you a deal and get his hands dirty for you…Overall excellent. Jeb is the man!”James Barlament
“Amber Stiles patiently helped me find just the right house. Since I was hours away, she did all of the legwork. We’re very happy with our house and will use 5Market Realty again!”Matt Adams
“Jullie was just great to help us with the sale of our property. She was very efficient and kept us posted on what was going on. She did everything she could do to help with our survey and walking the property with the buyers and us. The whole process was a very pleasant experience!”Carolyn Burnette
“Five Market realty recently represented me on the sale of 4 investment properties in Athens. They clearly are at the top of the local real estate market as they had a contract within 2 weeks on every property, two were under contract within a day of a signed listing agreement. I could not more highly recommend this group of professionals!”Melissa Clegg
“Christina is an incredibly knowledgeable Realtor. She has been in the business over 20 years, and it shows. No matter what came up, she knew how to handle it like a pro. I have used her to sell two homes and buy two homes.”Stephanie Hunt
“We used 5Market Realty for both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new home. Scott and Lauren are such a pleasure to work with! Both did exactly what was promised during the entire transaction, helping us to expediently get tasks completed, follow up on tasks, and calming anxieties that are always involved in selling and purchasing a home. 5Market Realty is the place to contact if you want to sell or buy a home!!”Kitty D.
“Ellen is very professional, detail-oriented, and one of the most genuine and amazing people I know! She puts so much effort into everything she does and is dedicated to helping her clients in any way she can. If you’re looking for the best realtor in Athens, I highly recommend choosing Ellen McLemore!”Mckenna Latour
“We bought a house with Alex Sams, an agent at 5Market during arguably the toughest sellers’ market in Athens history. We also had a strict budget and a short timeframe to find a home of our own. Also, worth mentioning, my husband and I are first time homebuyers. Despite those circumstances we had stellar outcome buying a home. As our agent, Alex expertly guided us through the buying process. We found a perfect home in an ideal, established neighborhood. The entire process was so much easier, and we ended up with a perfect home that fit our needs. I can’t say that would have been the case with a larger firm or a less knowledgeable agent. 5market Realty provides a nearly tailor-made service for buyer and seller needs.”Alicia V.
“We are so appreciative of Monica Gillespie’s support and guidance as we made our recent purchase of a 23 acre tract a few counties away. She professionally ROCKED every stage of the way from researching best fit for our needs, helping us get answers to all due diligence and assuring a quick & easy closing. But she is also a load of fun to spend the afternoon hiking the woods with! . So very happy with our lot and our new favorite person to see in Five Points. Call her. You won’t regret it!”Carolyn B.
“I am an out of state owner of an investment condo in Athens bought in 2007. I had tried to sell it many times over the years using a well know agency in town, but I was always told that the market wouldn’t support a sale anywhere near my original cost. Then about 30 days ago, I got a marketing letter from Scott Talley. I didn’t expect much, but I gave him a call. To my surprise, he said that he thought the property would move quickly. I gave him a low price for the listing, but he came back saying we should list it higher, at my target price. The day after the listing, he brought me an offer FOR THE FULL PRICE! After that, he handled everything! I didn’t even have to go to the closing. The wire transfer of the proceeds just arrived in my bank. I have bought and sold many houses, but Scott made this the easiest one of all. He knows what he is doing and he gets it done.”Kathryn Norton
“Talk about a Georgia Peach!!! We cannot say enough good things about Ellen. She really went out of her way to help, guide, protect and educate us during the entire process. It was appreciated since we are from out of state and all states are different when making a real estate purchase. Ellen is a great communicator and that was essential. Great personality, professional and knowledgeable in all aspects to help of towners! We stay connected because you just never know when we may need her services again. Besides, she is great to talk with. Trust me, you will be in good hands.”Fran M.
“Braden did a great job staging the house and getting great photos. She had very helpful suggestions on prepping the house for sale. Her marketing and pricing ideas were spot-on. She was extremely helpful at closing and even post-closing followup.”Jonathan F.
“Cameron was AWESOME!! We are buyers from California and we were trying to acquire a property to purchase in Athens… Cameron stayed in contact with us and aggressively tried to locate properties to our liking. Once we were able to get to Athens, some 4-5 months later, Cameron had a list of properties and spent two days with us until we found what we wanted… We thank him for his help and we love our new game-day property in Athens when for when we come to town!!! GO DAWGS!!!”Chris Milton
