Buying a Home in Georgia

Finding and purchasing a home that will meet your needs is a significant and often stressful time. Our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. We are experts in the area, and once we learn what it is that you’re looking for, finding your dream home is simple.

Before you start looking for a home you should ask yourself a few questions:

  • Where do you want to live? Are there particular neighborhoods or communities that you like?
  • What kind of house would you like (need)? Are you looking for a particular style? How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want?
  • Is a home office a necessity? Do you need a bonus room or flex-room?
  • Do you entertain often? Is a home suitable for entertaining something you’re looking for?
  • Do you want a yard, pool, gated or guard gated community?
  • Have you determined your price range or consulted a lender to determine the best price range?

Searching for your dream home can be a time-consuming experience. Working with our professional team will make the process much more efficient!

Brian and a team was a dream to work with. Real Tall Real Estate helped us buy AND sell our first home. We slept well throughout the entire process, even while we were in another country, Brian took care of everything.

You need Brian as your realtor! This was our first time buying a house, and at the same time, we were planning a wedding. With these two life events happening concurrently, it was a nerve wracking and emotional time. Brian did a fantastic job calming our nerves and navigating us through the house buying experience. Plus, he made it fun- you can always count on him for comic relief! Additionally, Brian provides more than just real estate advice- Need a recommendation? Mortgage broker? Contractor? Engineer? Brian has a reliable recommendation. However the thing I liked most about Brian is that he truly had our best interest in mind...he was not just trying to make a sale. Brian helped us to make a non-emotional decision to walk away from a house during due diligence because the inspector found a critical, expensive problem. At the time, I really wanted the house, but now looking back, it was the best decision to walk away. Without Brian, we may not have made that decision. Afterward this decision, Brian helped us buy an even better house- house of our dreams- and we couldn’t be happier!

Brian and his team are leagues above the other realtors we dealt with. Their responsiveness, ability to get you into houses not on the market yet, negotiation tactics, and looking out for your interest first are unparalleled. It was an absolute pleasure buying a house with Real Tall Real Estate, and we will certainly use them in our future adventures. Highly recommended!

Brian will help you find the home of your dreams and hold your hand to make sure the transaction is seamless. Pleased that we've worked with him on three different transactions.

Absolutely amazing team! I used Ryan & Brian to buy my condo and sell it. They’re the best, and will always have you in their best interest. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Brian and the Real Tall team were professional, responsive, flexible and patient! We were looking in Atlanta from out of town. Brian helped us maximize our time and stay focused on our priorities. The process from the start to finish could not have gone smoother. Thank you Brian!

Brian shepherded me through the buying process like the professional he is. He was both fun to spend time with, gave me realistic expectations throughout the process, and always fought for his client - no matter how silly my demands and desires. I loved working with him so much, I've contemplated  selling after less than a year in my house - just to work with him again :)
Brian helped me negotiate the condo-buying process when inventory was super-tight. His knowledge of the area helped weed out properties that were incompatible with my purchase goals - which of course saved time. His responsiveness to my inquiries was always immediate. He set up property tours  that were well organized and efficient. This is especially important in condos, where just getting into the building can seem like trying to get into Ft Knox. The closing process was smooth thanks to the attention to detail in all the various facets of home-buying. Thanks Brian!
My experience with Brian was second to none. I was out of state for the whole process and Brian and his team took care of everything, every step of the way. I would deal with Brian again without hesitation and would not hesitate to recommend him to people close to me. Thanks again!!!
Brian helped us purchase our first home and I couldn't recommend him more! We had pretty specific criteria for our house, and Brian worked hard to make sure we saw all possible options - he went above and beyond. As first-time homebuyers, we were full of questions, and Brian was always happy and  quick to answer our questions - I'm not sure when he sleeps! He was great to spend time with and an incredibly helpful guide through the complex process of buying a home. Brian is truly a 360 degree realtor - he understands all aspects of the process and is instrumental every step of the way.
I recently relocated to the Atlanta area, and was in need of transacting a long distance housing purchase. Upon locating a property of interest, I was so very fortunate to locate Brian's contact info on the internet. His knowledge of the market and contacts within the industry were second to none.  Following our initial conversation, he facilitated the coordination of a buyers "dream team" and guided us to the closing table in record time. I have "never" witnessed a smoother transition. I can honestly say, it was an absolute pleasure working with Brian! As such, I enthusiastically recommend you contact this extremely talented individual, and am exceedingly confident that all of your expectations will be surpassed as well. All the best!
Ryan and I had a great experience purchasing our first home together with Brian. He paid special attention to the details that both Ryan and I wanted in terms of space and design. He was available at all hours of the day and was very knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend him to  anyone seeking to buy a new home in the Atlanta area.
My wife and I met Brian at an open house and from there continued to work with him. Brian was there every step of the way throughout the process. He was very knowledgeable about the market dynamics and was able to provide us extensive info on the properties and neighborhoods we were interested in.  Brian is a great negotiator and really fights for his clients. The closing process was a breeze, no complaints here. He is prompt, responsive, detail oriented and just an overall pleasure to work with AND he has the best restaurant recommendations. Thanks for all of your help :-)
Brian Olivard is wonderful to work with. He is motivated to get the job done and attentive to all the details. He really understood what we were looking for and found it!! I am looking forward to working with him again. He will get all of our business.
My wife and I met Brian one Sunday afternoon as we were looking at open houses. We didn't have a realtor yet and were still not entirely sure where we wanted live. We did know we were looking in-town and Brian seemed very knowledgeable with ITP. We enjoyed speaking with him for a little while  and received his contact info. For the next several weeks he suggested places we might be interested in and finally found a new townhouse in a perfect location for us. We had some issues with the financial paperwork which was quite stressful towards the end (closing on a house is never tons of fun) but Brian made the entire process/experience very easy. I highly recommend this handsome devil, aka Real Tall Realtor!
First time we bought a house, it left a sour taste in our mouths as we felt pressured and as if our agent wasn't looking to get us the best deal possible. When the time came to buy a second property, we met with a lot of agents, most of who gave away similar vibes. Then we met Brian during an open house he was holding. He wasn't pressuring nor was he actively trying to become our agent. We felt that he was someone who would help us find what we want in the most pleasant way possible, and we were right.
Some 40 days after meeting Brian, we're holding the keys to a new house! During this house shopping journey, Brian would not only respond to our texts nearly immediately, he'd also get us to see places that haven't hit the market yet, which is huge in such a competitive world of Atlanta real estate. One thing that gave us confidence that Brian was our man was when we liked a house that was in somewhat rough shape, and he explained in detail that with our budget, we could find a much better property. I am certain that most agent would jump on putting in an offer so they can move on. Finally, when we found the one, Brian negotiated us great incentives, brand new appliances, etc. He was always on our side. And, as usual, when the transaction is over and keys are in hand, the relationship with your agent ends. But Brian still checks on us and for that reason alone, we will use him for our future endeavors. I cannot recommend him enough.
Shaun was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable, and made the whole process looking for a home easy & fun. It was my first time buying, and it can definitely be overwhelming. He really helped me narrow it down to the area I wanted to be in & the ideal place for me. I am very happy where I am &  absolutely loving my home!
Shaun was extremely helpful in the entire process from the very beginning. He took the time to completely understand my needs and did his absolute best to accommodate them. I would definitely recommend Shaun for anyone looking to find a home.
Shaun assisted us in the purchase of a Condo in Buckhead. We were from out of town and only had a limited amount of time to look and make a decision. He sent me a list of condos that fit my criteria and then put together a tour of the units. It all went very smoothly and we looked at 11 condos  altogether. With his help we narrowed it down to two and made offers. Shaun was very helpful in weeding out the bad properties and helped us understand the local market for pricing our offer. In the end we were successful and now own the unit that was our top choice. I highly recommend Shaun, he is patient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. When the time comes to sell, he will be the one I call for the listing.
Working with Brian was a great experience. He was very attentive to our needs and what we were looking for. He made sure everything was explained and kept the whole process moving. Highly recommend him!
We are in the process of working with Brian for the 3rd time in 2 years. He helped us purchase our first home back in 2015. He was extremely patient with us as first time home buyers and swayed us away from some homes we really liked but were at the top of our range, had some hidden problems and  would have been absolute disasters if we had purchased it. In the end, we ended up getting a townhome that was perfect for us and our budget! We were so impressed with Brian that when we decided to move to a different part of town a few years later we are using him as both the listing agent for our sale and the agent for our new home. He did a phenomenal job with our listing and as a result we had multiple offers within the first 24 hours! As long as my wife and I live in the Atlanta area we will not use another agent outside of Brian.
Moving from out of state on a short timeline for work, we found Brian with Real Tall Real Estate through a google search. Brian was quick to respond to our call and his team was very helpful. He was really quick to set us up with options that fit our short schedule. His guidance was really helpful and informed allowing us to quickly put in competitive offers and go under contract in this crazy market. He went out of his way to show us homes that fit our budget and lifestyle. The closing process was a breeze with Brian and his team. They made all the arrangements for the necessary inspections and reviews and went out of their way to find professionals that could work within our timeframe. Brian Olivard is the Real Tall Realtor and the whole team at Real Tall Real Estate was fantastic! We look forward to having the opportunbooty to use them again! #LiveTall
I recommend Brian to a friend to assist in the purchase of his new house. The experience and level of service was exceptional and he comes to top of mind for anyone who is in need of real estate assistance.

As I first time homebuyer, I must say this was one of the most taxing experiences that I have endured to date. As I write this review in my dream home, I can confidently say that I would not have made it through this process without Brian and the rest of the Real Tall Real Estate team. Brian advocated on my behalf countless times with builder sales agents, corporate VPs, agents, commissioners, etc. to ensure my experience as a first time homebuyer was as seamless as possible. Brian tailored his approach to meet my needs from day one. Not only did he do the standard due diligence of learning my style, wants/needs, and desired location, he was also extremely flexible in accommodating my busy schedule. Brian went above and beyond by FaceTiming me showings while I was out of town, coaching me throughout the emotional process of waiting on seller responses, and truly fought by my side until I had the key in my hand. The final days before closing truly exemplified the mission of the Real Tall team. We had an agreed upon cost for the home with signed contracts and Brian suggested that we go back to the sellers requesting a lower sale price to compensate for a low appraisal. Brian knew that I was fine paying the agreed upon price because I knew this was the home for me, but he was able to negotiate a lower sales price 2-days before closing which in turn reduced his commissions. I thanked him profusely for doing this and he stated, “I’m in this for the lifelong business.” I will never buy another house without Brian and the Real Tall Team. Thank you all so much for your time and support over the last 10-months. I could not be happier with my home.

I have had the pleasure of working with this team for 3 transactions. Every purchase and sale was met with the utmost professionalism and a real focus on making sure all of my needs were met. Cannot imagine using any other broker for buying or selling a house!

Brian and the Real Tall Real Estate team have become our Georgia family. When we moved to Georgia five years ago we found Brian by pure luck. He helped us find a perfect home for our family of three. Now as we leave Georgia back to Minnesota as an almost family of five Brian and his team helped us sell quickly and navigate a complicated sale. Brian or someone from his team are always prompt about communication. Would highly recommend them for buying or selling your home.

Brian is the most knowledgeable realtor we have ever used. He has a wide network of peers that allow him to constantly update you on the status of the market. He is the perfect balance of aggressive while not being pushy, and takes the time to understand the needs of each and every client. To top it off, he’s a really nice guy. We have used Brian in the purchase of two properties, and our children have used him as well. We all highly recommend Brian and his team!
