A fresh face in the real estate market, Ariel Starke, Realtor for Harry Norman, REALTORS, is already breaking new ground in the industry as an up-and-coming agent. Driven by ambition, Starke found her way into real estate after searching for a flexible career that could allow her to maintain an active presence in her own community. “Being a Realtor never feels like work,” she says. “It’s an extension of my daily life and I enjoy it so much.”
With just over three years of experience behind her, Starke is finding success helping families find their forever home. Methodical and always ensuring her checklist is completed, she has quickly risen to the top within her firm and within the city of Atlanta. She was the Rookie of the Year at Harry Norman East Cobb in 2020, a Top Producer in 2020, 2021 and 2022 in the Atlanta Realtors Association, and a member of the Harry Norman Success Circle.
Known as a natural people connector, Starke is well networked within her community, which she says allows her to help her clients feel welcome and integrated when working with her. “I want them to feel connected to where they live,” she says. “I love recommending soccer teams, restaurants and introducing them to my other clients with kids at the same school. It adds the finishing touch, which allows them to really love their new home.”
Outside of the office, Starke is an avid hiker with her family, a mother to a 7- and 8-year-old, and an active member of the GIVES committee for the Junior League of Cobb-Marietta, which provides opportunities and assistance to underprivileged women and children in Cobb County.
