Mary Ellen Vanaken's Story

As the owner of the Mary Ellen Vanaken Team, one of the top real estate teams in the Keller William Realty North Atlanta (KWNA) office, I look forward to working with you. My backyard has everything available from starter homes, condominiums, and investment properties to large luxury homes and estates. I enjoy working with all types of clients including first-time buyers, investors, and builders.

Besides being, a realtor and team owner with KWNA, I am also a member of Keller Williams Luxury and Keller Williams Sports & Entertainment Divisions. I have served on the Keller Williams North Atlanta Agent Leadership Council for 15 years and have been with KWNA for over 18 years.

I was born and raised on Long Island in New York. My father, Donald, was in the Army and served in the Vietnam war. I am passionate about helping our military and military families as they buy and sell homes worldwide.

Retaining the services of the Mary Ellen Vanaken Team entitles you to a network of professional individuals committed to helping you all the way through to the closing table. I utilize the latest technologies, market research, and business strategies to exceed my client’s expectations. 

Beginning your home search can be an overwhelming and daunting task. Because of that, our team makes sure that you, and all other potential buyers, understand each of the 8 steps that we take to make the process as easy and painless as possible. By the end of your search, with our support and guidance, you will live happily ever after in your new, dream home.

If you are selling a home in North Atlanta, my team and I will provide a comprehensive digital marketing strategy to sell your home. Our approach includes targeted Facebook advertising, email marketing, content marketing, and personalized 1-to-1 outreach.

I can also assist you with your investment needs. Using your VA loan to buy a multi-family unit can offer you years of income.

I work with the best VA Lenders and will work to make your transaction stress-free. 

I believe that a home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door and how you can instantly envision your life unfolding there. It is about your life and your dreams. Contact me today and allow me to assist you in finding your next dream home.
