Attorney, Broker, and Certified Appraiser
Deborah Reece, Esq. has faithfully served the real estate industry since 2002.
In 2001, Ms. Reece graduated from Mercy College with a Bachelor of Science, Computer Science degree. From 1997-2002, she started her early career as a Web Applications Programmer. In 2002, as a temporary fix to a layoff, she obtained a real estate license in New York.
Certified Residential Appraiser
In October 2002, Ms. Reece moved to Atlanta, Georgia and obtained an appraiser license. After working as an appraiser apprentice for almost 1 year, she took the necessary training and furthered her education to upgrade her license. Her hard work paid off. She obtained the highest residential appraiser license recognized by the state of Georgia. A Certified Residential Real Property Appraiser can appraise any and all residential property with no restrictions as to complexity or value. In 2003, she started her own appraisal company, Appraisal Planet, LLC, which is now known as Authentic Valuations, LLC.
In 2006, upon the expiration of her New York real estate license, she obtained her Georgia real estate license. With her real estate license, she helped relatives and close friends purchase real estate on a part-time basis.
Real Estate and Tax Attorney
In 2008, Ms. Reece further enhanced her education by attending Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School in Midtown, Atlanta Georgia. She continued to work as a real estate appraiser and agent part-time while attending law school. In 2011, Ms. Reece passed the Georgia Bar and was sworn in as an attorney. She currently assists her clients with real estate and tax related legal matters.
Real Estate Broker
In 2016, Ms. Reece once again furthered her education and career by obtaining her real estate broker license. This was a career move that was not fueled by personal growth. It was fueled by seller and buyer complaints regarding the lack of attentiveness and care for their needs by real estate agents. Ms. Reece felt the need to fill this void by providing sellers and buyers the same level of customer service and care given to valuation clients, family, and close friends. As a result, she started a Real Estate Brokerage Firm, Authentic Realty, LLC. The firm brings a humanly attentive approach to real estate by focusing on specific client needs rather than maximizing commission goals.
