Agent Snapshot: Amber Rogers, Realtor, Coldwell Banker, Sandy Springs


Amber Rogers is a Realtor with Virtual Properties Realty

What was your first job in the realty industry? I sold SAND! My first job out of FSU (go NOLES!) circa 2005, was for Ginn Clubs & Resorts, selling pre development lots and luxury condos on Grand Bahama Island for a development that was called “Versailles Ser Mer”. It was to be the “next Atlantis-like” getaway with amenties for the stars. In fact, John Travolta was a client.

Where did you grow up? I grew up in East Cobb!

Growing up, what did you want to be? I wanted to be a business woman. I never was too sure what that meant but knew I wanted to control my own future

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? I go and I sit in one of my favorite places which I know will sell soon so I need to find a new favorite place but — I like to go and relax at my listing on the top of a cliff (205 N MIll Ct-30328). This is a temp get away for me of course as its only been listed about a month and is in the process of receiving offers. The owners/my clients know I do this zen ritual after or during a stressful real estate day. 🙂

If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? HMMMMM…..Donald Trump.
Because he is so successful but has had to learn through mistakes.

Where is your favorite place to hang out? I love any rooftop, and most recently “hung out” atop the W (Ivan Allen) heliopad rooftop with a colleague- Erik Dowdy, after showing a client one of the remaining two story penthouses. It was killer.

What do you love most about the industry? I love that every day is different!

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? I do everything I can to be real with people. It is not something that is hard for me to do.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job? The most difficult aspect of my job, hands down, is knowing when NOT to talk.

Where do you go to network and meet new clients? I gotta give it up to facebook. Its a world of networking there. I have been utilizing my film/tv background to network in those circles as well and its been great.

What has been your greatest accomplishment? Sticking with it! (in real estate)

What was the last good movie you saw or book you read? Can I get back to you on that?
Book…”The Four Agreements”…and that was years ago. I could use a “refresher-read”

What is your favorite restaurant? I love Red Sky in East Cobb. Shout out to Therry Kirby!!!

My favorites are Fontaine’s Oyster Bar (in the Highlands), I love Rays on the River for drinks after work or “wine down Wednesdays” – but am partial because its super convenient to where I live.
….and a new fave is C& S Seafood!

Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Atlanta? I love the Fox theatre.

What kind of car do you drive? I recently blew up the transmission in my fave Audi and now its an Accord.

Smartphone or paper? paper

What is your favorite city after Atlanta? Montreal

In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry? My advice is to never give up & to learn when to listen.

What’s your favorite real estate iPhone/Android app? RPR!

Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter? n/a I never could get into Twitter.
