Jill Petersen – CEO/President of Petersen Partners and Managing Buyers
Dan Petersen – CMO/CFO – Sales and Marketing
Petersen Partners | Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties
The collaborative chemistry of Jill and Dan Petersen is unmatched in Atlanta. In 2013, the nine-member, family-owned business, with annual sales goals of $50 million, demonstrated its effectiveness, ranking No. 1 among Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties teams.
“We were thrilled to lead the way for BHHS Georgia Properties last year, and I think that speaks to how we run and manage our business,” Jill says. “Dan and I both grew up in family-owned and operated companies, so we understand that growing a business and working and, more importantly, succeeding as a team takes a round-the-clock effort.”
Both Jill and Dan recognize the other’s strengths as well as weaknesses, which is why each is positioned to leverage their particular skillset.
As the dedicated CEO, a personable Jill focuses on the buyer side of the business – especially in Cobb and Fulton County – and has built a strong rapport with other agents around the nation. As CMO and CFO, Dan works on the sales and marketing side, using his extensive business experience, analytical background and technological skills to drive growth and sales.
“With me handling the overall marketing campaign for our listings, it frees up our agents to focus solely on the client,” Dan says. “This allows for a consistent, high-level of service that, time and again, helps us exceed not only our buyers’ and sellers’ expectations, but our own.”
Working in an international hub like Atlanta, the Petersen’s see themselves as fortunate. Through strategic positioning, they’ve been able to take advantage of the city’s diversity, cultivating a strong relocation reputation and building relationships with a number of high-level Fortune 500 executives.
Jill and Dan are proud of the success they’ve found and the team they’ve built, penning their achievements on three important factors: being professional, being honest and being relatable.
“Like many of our clients, we are busy rearing an active family, so we understand the specific needs and desires when searching for the perfect home in the perfect location,” Jill says. “People like working with those who understand them and can relate on a personal level.”
