- Savvy Seller Winning in 2020
This gorgeous home located in the popular Waterford Green subdivision sold in late September. With 0 days on market, excellent price, and a quick close of just 32 days, you might think what an easy sale for the seller.
True, it was about as uncomplicated as it comes with home sales…but there is more to the story.
This seller called me many many months ago to discuss the sale of his home. He decided to partner with me, and we created a plan. Together, we looked at the market statistics, comparable sales, and discussed what buyers are looking for in East Cobb homes. We made a list of items that needed to be updated, replaced, and repaired. So for the rest of the story…….The savvy seller spent the time and money to properly prepare the home for the market.
The beautiful interior had refinished hardwoods, new carpet and soft neutral colors throughout.
Appliances were either repaired or replaced. Electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems were inspected and replaced if needed. The seller took the time and energy to present the home as “move in ready” to buyers.
Curb appeal was excellent with this home. The seller’s long time gardener gave extra attention to the home in getting it ready for market. The beautiful front entry and lushly-landscaped front lawn made a beautiful first impression.

- Another Home SOLD!
I have been working a lot with empty nesters lately. As a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), I am well-versed in the challenges that 55 + home owners may encounter. I recently listed and sold a beautiful home in Waterford Green subdivision.
Listing a home in October was challenging ,as we did not have the volume of buyers we would have in a spring market. However, fall and winter listings can be advantageous, as the buyers who are searching for a home at this time are typically serious. Our Dorsey Alston marketing and research efforts paid off, and we found the right buyer for this home in just 24 days! Sellers are happy, buyers are thrilled. It’s great to help folks find the “Next Happy Place!” See the seller’s comments below:
- Elegance and Luxury in the Heart of East Cobb
1297 Waterford Green Trail, Marietta, GA 30068
5BR | 5.5B | Finished Terrace Level | $809,000 | East Cobb | Walton
Built in 1994, this beautiful European style home was the last to be built in the Waterford Green Subdivision. When the owners first saw its spacious and elegant style, they instantly fell in love with the house they would call home for the next 24 years. As the first and only owners, they discovered what a true jewel this home really is.
Location , location, location … one of the things the owners love about this home is its close proximity to neighborhood amenities. Over the years, the family loved spending time together at the Waterford Green playground. And the commute to Roswell and The Perimeter areas is a snap. There is easy access to GA. 400, I-285 and I-75.
The large and well-designed kitchen is a cook’s dream. Starting with the five burner gas cook top and moving along to brand new double ovens, its a kitchen filled with function and beauty. The new pendant lighting over the island delivers a soft ambiance and modern feel to this beautiful living space. Gleaming hardwood floors provide comfort and beauty. The breakfast room/keeping room is cozy during the cool season, thanks to the gas fireplace.
A favorite space in this home is the sunroom. The builder thought that large and expansive decks were overrated, so he built this home with a large, light-filled room that features comfortable decks on either side. It’s a perfect space to serve as kid’s playroom, home office, sunroom, etc.
This custom tile shower was completed recently. The double shower head, shower seat, niche, and beautiful tile design makes this master bathroom a lovely place to begin and end each day.
Every bedroom in the home has its own private bath or en suite bath. All baths have been renovated to include quartz countertops. Quartz is a popular countertop option that offers many of the same benefits as granite—it is strong and durable, comes in a variety of colors, is resistant to stains, and is available in different patterns. However, unlike granite, quartz is non-porous. This means that it does not need a sealant, making it easy to clean. Quartz is also a little bit easier to install than granite, offering an added benefit when working in tight spaces such as the bathroom.
The spacious terrace level features the same elegant finishes and touches as the main level. Built for versatility, this space can be used for a game room, pool table, home office, or just about anything you can imagine.
The location of Waterford Green subdivision is a nature lovers paradise. Hiking, walking, canoeing, paddle boarding are all close by. Right outside the subdivision entrance are sidewalks and a multi- use path that leads to shopping , Gold Branch Park, Roswell River Boardwalk Park, and Hyde Farm. So much to see and enjoy-right in the heart of East Cobb!
The homeowners in Waterford Green love the sense of community that makes everyone feel welcome. The new website is great place to share information and stay up-to-date with community news.

Waterford Green subdivision
SOLD! One of the favorite things about this home according to the sellers….is the yard. This home sits on an acre that borders the Chattahoochee National River Park. It has a fenced back yard, but the property goes well behind the fenced in yard. It is one of the larger lots in Waterford Green.
Nestled behind beautiful magnolia trees for quiet and privacy is a beautiful stacked stone KOI pond complete with waterfall. The waterfall and pond area twinkles in the evening with light.
There is a deep well on the property that provides water for the pond and landscaping as well.
This home is a European/traditional with about 4900 square feet. 4 bedroom/3.5 bath makes it the perfect size for today’s consumer. Buyers are falling in love again with smaller more useable spaces than ever before. This open concept home has tons of natural light and the kitchen is the heart of the home with casual dining area and a keeping room. The kitchen is open to the family room as well.
This is a “cooks kitchen.” The custom island and hutch were created by Sterling Designs “Biltmore Estate For Your Home Collection” . Both pieces are handcrafted and designed for beauty and function. The island has a Viking Professional series downdraft cooktop for the best in-home cooking experience. The microwave, convection oven and warming drawer are all Viking Professional .
The island has vertical storage for large trays and cutting boards and cooking sheets. There are two double pull out racks for spices. The matching hutch also has tremendous storage and has space for a tv that can be hidden when not viewing.
The master suite features not one closet but two custom closets. Her closet has ample room. The inviting master suite has a marble fireplace and a covered porch/deck. Perfect to sit out and sip your morning coffee.
How about having your own spa-spa-like bathroom? This master bathroom was totally renovated and just finished in 2019. Complete with custom storage for things like blowdryers and other items used daily. The soaking tub looks over the private backyard.
Waterford Green is a classic swim tennis subdivision. Excellent public schools and easy access to a number of private schools makes this location a favorite. Situated along the East portion of Lower Roswell Road, it’s an easy to drive into Roswell and the Perimeter area in Sandy Springs. The sidewalks and mixed use trails outside the neighborhood entrances create a walkable environment to Parkaire shops, East Cobb Library, and to nearby parks and trails.
The amenities package is one of the best of the East Cobb subdivisions. The open air pavilion with wood burning fireplace, clubhouse, tennis courts, basketball courts, playground and pool makes it seem like your very own resort year round.

- Waterford Green: An East Cobb Classic
Sold 01/07/2019 Two days on market!
I am excited about my newest listing in Waterford Green. Research shows that many of today’s buyers are very busy and want to purchase a home that is renovated and reflects today’s trends. With this in mind, the sellers decided to totally renovate their home before putting it on the market. This home has the both of best worlds…being in an established neighborhood while having the look and feel of a newer home.
The entire home, both inside and out, has been painted-including the garage floors! The paint colors and carpeting are neutral and accentuate the beautiful light throughout the home.
We know that buyers still love a white kitchen, especially in the South. This kitchen sports white cabinets and white granite countertops with a gorgeous tile backsplash. The stainless steel appliances look sleek and modern. The 5 burner gas cooktop and double convection ovens are brand new. The kitchen is open to the family room and to a beautiful light filled room that can serve as casual dining area/keeping room.
Sometimes in a renovation, sellers stop short of taking care of the little things like fixtures and doorknobs. Not here. New light fixtures, ceiling fans, knobs and hardware are used throughout, adding to the overall esthetic of the home.
The sellers reworked the entire terrace level and built out a large spacious bathroom with gorgeous tile floors, bedroom, and plenty of finished storage for the game room. They also left a large unfinished space that includes lots of shelving for all of the “stuff” homeowners need to keep somewhere!
