Headquartered at 3560 Old Milton Parkway, Atlantic Realty has been one of Metro Atlanta's leading REO listings brokers for the last 10 years, and in 2009, owner Greg Kurzner expanded the company by adding a residential sales division with the goal of becoming a full-service brokerage.

"Greg has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to position his company for growth by being ahead of the curve which is well aligned with ERA Real Estate's forward-thinking approach to providing innovative business solutions to our franchisees."

Kurzner's roots in the market date to 1988, and he has worked in and owned commercial, REO and residential real estate operations during his nearly 25-year career.
