About Us

Mark Congdon

In 1979, my parents Al and Marcia were searching for a great place to build a weekend get-away. We discovered the North Georgia Mountains, Ellijay to be specific. We built the perfect weekend cabin in 1980, which our family and friends all enjoyed over the years. When my father retired from his business in Atlanta in 1994, they built their retirement home here as well. As my father was not the type to sit around and enjoy the beautiful views, trout streams and abundant wildlife, he started his 4th career path in Real Estate. This was in the early '90s, and he and I enjoyed scouting property to list, sell and build on, and I was able to shadow him as he grew the Real Estate business. He achieved sales in the multi-million dollar range regularly and became a life member of that club as well as being involved in the construction of numerous new homes in the area. After years of working together, he retired in 2010, and I continue the tradition.

My background begins with service in the U.S. Coast Guard. After my military service, I joined Home Depot in the mid '80s and had a great career in middle management, training and overseeing Installed Sales and other specialty areas. I retired in 2006 and, having many memories of great times in the Mountains, decided to move here to begin my Real Estate career using the years of experience I had gained. I have brought not only an inexhaustible amount of energy, but the ability to give new insight into the Real Estate business. My ability to work with people and listen to their wants is refreshing in this business of selling. That ability, coupled with my years of in depth knowledge of Ellijay and surrounding areas, has allowed me to offer a tremendous service to help folks like you find the property of your dreams. That energy, insight, knowledge and professionalism has culminated into my own place in the Circle of Excellence "Million Dollar Club" as well as "Top Producer" status with both my Listed property and "Units Sold".

As we all work through the constantly fluctuating Real Estate opportunities, my commitment to you is that I will listen to exactly what Real Estate needs you are searching to fill and, with my knowledge of both the area and the properties that are available, assist you in finding the property of your dreams. Please do not hesitate to contact me to use my experience to answer any questions you may have toward the purchase or sale of property in the North Georgia Mountains.
