Aaron Hofmann & his team of dedicated Realtors specialize in the Smyrna Vinings, East Cobb, Sandy Springs and Roswell areas. Our local market expertise provides an unparalleled benefit for our clients
Aaron Hofmann, founder of SmyrnaVinings.com and partner of The H2 Realty Group at Keller Williams, is a CPA and Realtor. Coming from a professional services background, Aaron has made the commitment to offer world-class service that homebuyers and home sellers deserve. Aaron uses his financial, marketing and technology expertise to ensure his clients receive the best service possible. There are many options available to the consumer these days, some more successful than others. Aaron has created a successful and unique marketing program and implemented industry best practices to ensure that his clients are more than satisfied.
Aaron has worked with clients throughout metro Atlanta to buy and sell their homes, condos and townhomes. Aaron's main focus has been on the Smyrna Vinings community on the northwest side of metro Atlanta. The Smyrna Vinings community includes Smyrna, Vinings, Mableton, Wildwood and the Cumberland areas. Sensing a real need for a community resource, Aaron created SmyrnaVinings.com. The site is the source for so much information in Smyrna Vinings. The Neighborhoods section provides an overview on every Smyrna Vinings neighborhood and includes homes, condos and townhomes. Both resales and new construction. You can also check out the Smyrna Vinings Events Calendar, read about restaurant reviews, the latest area developments, businesses, schools, parks, etc.
Aaron's wit and humor also come to play on SmyrnaVinings.com as he often writes about his experiences in the community. SmyrnaVinings.com has quickly become the #1 site in Smyrna Vinings due to its overwhelming popularity. Not only is it a great resource if you're looking to buy or sell your home, but for all Smyrna Vinings residents. Even the community poll has been a great tool to gauge popularity of area restaurants or gain insight into the community residents thoughts on current events.
Realizing the value our team has provided in creating SmyrnaVinings.com, we have launched AllAboutRoswell.com and AllAboutSandySprings.com, both community websites providing a great deal of information on local real estate, events, businesses, parks, schools, etc. AllAboutRoswell.com has quickly become a great resource for buyers looking for Roswell homes for sale, just as AllAboutSandySprings.com has proven to be a proven resource for homebuyers searching for Sandy Springs homes for sale.
Realizing that the current economic issues were not a short term issue, Aaron Hofmann became a Certified Distressed Property Expert in early 2009. This is a critical distinction and provides additional knowledge and expertise to advise clients on how to avoid foreclosure, including options such as short sales, loan modifications, deed-in-lieus, etc. Our team is committed to assisting Atlanta distressed homeowners with assessing their situation and creating a solution. In our experience, we have also found a lot of incorrect information about foreclosures and short sales, so we created an information resource for all of your questions, called ShortSalesCentral.com.
Areas of Expertise
Aaron uses his background to help his clients, from first-time homebuyers to luxury homes. Being a CPA has also allowed Aaron to provide additional financial and tax guidance to his clients which has proven to be highly successful. While Aaron Hofmann has sold property throughout metro Atlanta, he has developed an exclusive market niche and knowledge base on the Smyrna Vinings community which allows him to provide a higher level of service.
"I had my primary residence on the market FSBO in Smyrna from February to sometime in April. During that time...I met literally dozens of real estate agents showing the property (I'd guess around 25 or so). When I didn't sell the property FSBO and decided to list on the MLS...I called Aaron to handle the transaction. Out of all the agents that showed my house while it was FSBO...he was the most qualified and knowledgeable...and the one I felt would handle my deal most proficiently.
He began with a surprising request...that we raise the price $10k (not what I expected from an agent since it hadn't sold) and this was in a slow market. The strategy worked. We sold the house...have closed...and moved on. He did a great job for us. I've referred Aaron to two other homeowners in Atlanta...both listed with him. He'll get all my future business in Atlanta."
"Aaron Hofmann is a bright agent who puts a lot of thought and planning into his work. Aaron went above and beyond the call of duty to help me sell my home in Smyrna and purchase a home in Sandy Springs. He took what could have been a stressful experience and turned it into a very easy and rewarding one. Hopefully I will not need his services for a long time but I would definitely work with him again and have already recommended him to others!"
"From start to finish, everything Aaron did to help us sell and purchase our Smyrna home exceeded our expectations. Since this was the first time that we had ever tried to sell and buy at the same time, we had many questions and concerns. Aaron did a great job explaining the process and looking out for our best interests. Our house sold for full price in just over two weeks and he quickly negotiated a great price for our new home. The entire experience could not have been any better and we will definitely recommend Aaron to our friends and family."
