Georgia Life Realty Joins Real Living Real Estate Brokerage Network

Villa Rica, GA-based brokerage to operate as Real Living Georgia Life Realty

IRVINE, CA (July 19, 2016) - Real Living Real Estate, one of the nation's leading real estate franchisors and a member of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage franchise networks, today announced that Georgia Life Realty has joined the network operating as Real Living Georgia Life Realty.

Broker/Co-Owner Debbie Hohenstein said Real Living Real Estate was a clear choice for her company with a philosophy and vision closely aligned to her own. "When I heard the Real Living slogan, 'The Power of Us, the Freedom to Be You,' I knew we had to move forward with this brand," she said. "We needed the tools and resources of a national franchise in order to stay competitive in our marketplace but still wanted to remain a personal, local and relationship-oriented brokerage. Real Living allows us to do just that."

In conjunction with the transition, Hohenstein and her company have moved operations to a new office in the historic downtown section of Villa Rica. "Now we’re right in the heart of town within walking distance to many local attractions, which will be advantageous to our agents and the clients they serve," said Warren Hohenstein, co-owner of Real Living Georgia Life Realty. "The office features modern appointments like a coffee bar, loft-style layout and other amenities that will enhance collaboration in the real estate process."

With their affiliation, Real Living Georgia Life Realty agents gain access to a comprehensive and integrated suite of real estate tools and resources. "We're excited to have the advantage of the innovative tools, technology and professional development offered by Real Living," Debbie Hohenstein said. "I always say you must change in order to grow and we expect to grow as a member of Real Living Real Estate."

Georgia Life Realty will commemorate its transition July 20 at 10 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, open house and welcome reception at the new headquarters, 211 Main St. Members of the Main Street Town Committee, brokerage agents, business alliances and others will also participate in the event.

Robert McAdams Jr., president of Real Living Real Estate, welcomed Real Living Georgia Life Realty to the network. "Debbie, Warren and the team are well respected throughout the Villa Rica community for their quality service and expertise," he said. "We're pleased they've joined us and we value their membership in our brand."

Added Gino Blefari, CEO of HSF Affiliates, "Real Living Georgia Life Realty is a fine company and will be a terrific ambassador of our brand."
