BUY, RENT, SELL, INVEST ATLANTA HOMES- Specializing in homes for sale in & around the metro Atlanta area.
My interest in real estate began about two decades ago when my Mom advised me to invest in raw land. Who knew that following her advice would lead to many wonderful opportunities where I would eventually pursue a career, and not just dabble in a hobby I found very interesting. I have always been intrigued with investments, how and why they worked, and also what caused them to fail.
Upon taking on my first investment feat at a very young age I was eager, and dived right in. The challenges that came my way were compared to natural disasters; in my mind. However; I had no choice, but to face each one “head on”; since I had borrowed money from the bank, and was now obligated to pay it back. I was building a duplex from the ground up, and had to follow through.
Somehow; I had to put the pieces of the puzzle together, and make it all work. Being responsible for the entire process; from the development of raw land to the very last shingle on the roof; provided intense and priceless "hands-on" experience. Hence began my real estate career.

Originally from the Bahamas; my childhood consisted of an adventurous island life. Floridas' close proximity to the Bahamas made for frequent trips to Miami, and I later found myself toggling between the two tropical shores.

My Clients Prospective
"Adell has been assisting me with my real estate investments for a number of years. I like how she cuts to the chase and isn't afraid to tell me what I don't want to hear. She always provides up to date statistics that helps me to make informed decisions." -Everett Roberts
"Being a single professional female that knew nothing about real estate; except for what I heard around the water cooler, I was concerned and apprehensive about buying a home. Adell guided me through the entire process and provided a lot of real information about the real estate market and how it was impacting the neighborhood I wanted to move into. Today; she's not only my Realtor, but my friend." -Nadja Diaz (Mar 2011)
"I had a lot on plate- "opening a new business", transferring 2 employees, and finding a new home for my family- I'm sure Adell's role extended beyond being just our REALTOR. She provided local information that played an important role on exactly where the location of my business should be. She found my employees a place to rent, and found my family a home that was perfect for us; in a neighborhood we've grown to love-" Adam, Shirley & Heather-Lynn(Aug 2011)
"Ms. Forbes is a very passionate Real Estate Agent with great attention to detail. I purchased a foreclosed home that was owned by the bank, and my Contract stated that the Bank would have the cost of a certain item, and at Closing the Bank denied they ever agreed to pay for the item. We were already at the closing and I really wanted the home so I ended up paying for the item at closing. A few weeks later I received a refund in the mail for the item I paid for. I found out that Ms. Forbes took it upon herself to go beyond the typical duty of an Agent, and after closing located the email that proved all along that I shouldn't have paid for this item. She is a determined person that pushes for the best benefit of her clients. It was a pleasure doing business with her, and will definately call on her again in the future"...Domonique Jackson-Russell (Jan 2013)
"Adell helped us sell a condo we hadn't had any luck with for over 2 years. We had used different Agents off and on but none of them were able to sell it. Eventhough we lived in a different State she kept us updated on Market Trends & Comps in the area of our condo; we always had current knowledge and this enabled up to make informed decisions during the process. Adell was a pleasure to work with, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a competent & reliable Agent" Chris Denedios (Dec 2012)
"Adell was always there when we needed her. All other Agents were not interested in representing us because we were not buying, but renting. After looking at so many different condos; Adell knew what we wanted, and stayed on top of helping us through this new process. We would encourage anyone looking for an Agent to contact her" Etrudy & Todd Mitchell (Dec 2012)
"I would definately recommend Adell Forbes to anyone looking for a new home or investment property. If you would like to sell your home she is very knowledgeable on what it takes to sell a home in todays' real estate market as well! Given the importance of moving quickly when trying to build your real estate investment portfolio; she is HIGHLY responsive! She also adapts to multiple forms of communication (text; email; ipad; phone calls etc) as my needs changed. I look forward to continuing to work with Adell with my future endeavours." K Mouhamadou (Jan 2013)
