As if it weren’t enough to be consistently among the top producers, Realtor Leianne Messina also refurbishes run-down properties to resell them as the owner and design director of her own company, Redneck Renovation.
Messina has ranked among the top 5 percent of all 9,000 members of the Atlanta Realtors Association for volume sold since 2011. A consistent Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club top producer, she has sold more than $90 million since she began her real estate career in 2005. Achieving early success, she was named the Coldwell Banker Rookie of the Year in 2007 after selling more than $5 million her first year.
Working with luxury buyers and sellers in upscale markets in Metro Atlanta, Messina strives to achieve profitable results for each client. Because of her professionalism and excellent customer service, repeat and referred clients make up a significant portion of her business. “I virtually hold my clients’ hands during the transaction,” Messina says. “I’m personally there for them, and almost all of them become dear friends of mine.”
Messina’s 31 years of experience in marketing, sales, public relations, branding and interior design underlies her success in marketing homes. She provides clients with professional staging products, services and photography to maximize the desirability of homes.
Clients also benefit from Messina’s design and renovation expertise when buying or selling a home. She creates custom vanities and home accessories for her Farmwoody home décor line, named for her beloved home, and blogs about her life there as a “Fancy Farmhand” with her dogs and chickens.
A member of numerous boards and committees serving her community, Messina tithes to her House That Built Me program, concentrating on housing assistance and children in foster care. Spending time with her two teenagers is her favorite pastime.
