"Sean and Shannon bring integrity and a passion for client service to the real estate profession. Their listening skills and compassion, combined with superior knowledge of real estate, are second to none. I have purchased property through The Dammann Team, and it will not be the last time I seek them out. As far as I am concerned, they are on my team!! Sean and Shannon will spend as much or as little time with you as you desire, and they give that time willingly and wholeheartedly. With a long history of real estate transactions in my past and a knowledge of other realtors, I know that I personally will never use anyone else."
“I was looking to purchase a property in 2020 that would make an excellent rental. I needed to work with someone who really knew the area, someone who understood it from a long-term perspective, because it was a fast-moving seller’s market and I was a new buyer to the area. Shannon found me the perfect house, and she did it so quickly that I was out of town! She knew we had to move fast so we walked through it together (on zoom) and discussed everything in great detail. I totally depended on her knowledge of the market and incredible judgement and I decided to make an offer that same day. I am so glad I did. Shannon guided me through the offer and counter-offer and my final offer was accepted as the first choice in a multiple offer situation. She then guided me through inspections, more negotiations and a final contract - all while I was out of town! My house has attracted wonderful tenants and has stayed rented from the moment I put it on the market. In a challenging market, Shannon got me everything I wanted, at a price I could afford. Shannon and Sean grew up in Atlanta so they know the area well. They have a thorough understanding of property from a home-owners perspective and also from an investor’s perspective. Shannon is a compassionate and respectful listener, which means she actually understands what you want. That quality, along with the level of service and incredible integrity displayed by both Shannon and Sean is what I benefited from most. I was able to depend on Shannon with every step of my purchase. I leaned on her more than a lot of buyers might, and I am so lucky that I could.”
“We have worked with Sean for years. He was the only agent we considered when we bought our first home in the area in 2009. Sean and his team were remarkable in helping us sort out zoning for the property, going way above and beyond. They were the only agents we considered when we went to buy a lot in 2017. They listed and sold our home with great attention to detail and to all of our needs. They helped us to get the property ready for sale so that we could get the best price for our property and we had multiple offers at or above the listing as soon as it went on the market. Highly recommend this amazing team!”
“Dear Sean, Just a note to let you know how happy Joan and I are with the selling of our house there in Decatur. After using another real estate agent for too long, we decided to ask you to handle our real estate and WOW, was it the right choice. Your knowledge of real estate and your concerns helped us to make good decisions and your long hours of hard work and dedication lead to a wonderful end. Your attention to detail, such as the book that you put together, telling clients about the amenities of the Decatur area was superb, all of the facts, figures, and directions were there for them to see. Sean, you are to be commended for your honesty and you should be proud because you show your passion and compassion for what you do in your work. Thanks again for everything.”
"Sean’s team was thorough and patient in our search for just the right house in Oakhurst. We had a great time every time we went house hunting, and we knew we were in excellent hands when it came time for the negotiations. The team handled everything from pricing to inspection, and made sure that we were comfortable with every step of the process. When it came time to close, Sean and his team were on hand to make sure everything went smoothly. We have already recommended them to several friends! "
“Over the past five years, we have bought and sold three houses through The Dammann Team. When Sean represented us as a buyer’s agent, we really appreciated his knowledge of the neighborhood and ability to keep us informed of the homes for sale. As our needs changed, he focused in on the best home for our lifestyle. In particular, the last home that we purchased, we felt that without Sean, we would have never had the opportunity to buy the home. We wholeheartedly recommend The Dammann Team to all of our friends.”
“Thanks to Sean Dammann and the team. The entire experience was good – it can be intimidating buying a 70 year old house, but your thorough approach made every step come off flawlessly. We felt prepared and well supported throughout the process.”
“Many thanks for all the hard work you did to sell our house in Atlanta and to help us get the best offer. We always felt that you were looking out for our best interests and we came to greatly value the excellent advice you gave us during the “heat of battle”.”
“We met Shannon, and later Sean, by sheer luck. My husband and I went to an open house to see a home where they were the listing agents. Shannon was so lovely and knowledgeable. We saw that house two or three times, but ultimately fell in love with a neighboring property. We liked Shannon so much, we asked her to be our buyers’ agent. It was a great decision! She is a very calming and stable presence—unflappable and smart. And Sean has deep knowledge of real estate and the market. As a team, these two are pretty perfect. Both Shannon and Sean became our confidantes, our trusted advisors, our go-to people for everything related to buying our dream house. They represented us well at every level, through some challenging negotiations, and made this purchase happen. But that’s not the end of it. We also had a house to sell. We never seriously considered hiring anyone but the Dammann Team to help. The old house needed work. Sean and Shannon recommended some terrific people to help update the house. But in the end, it became unnecessary. It was sold, as-is, five weeks after we moved into the new house. It was a great outcome. No muss, no fuss and relatively hassle-free. Again, this is in large part due to the Dammann Team. Would we hire them again? Absolutely. They gained our trust and respect and we could not be more pleased with our partnership. Our recommendation to have the Dammann Team represent you in buying or selling is enthusiastic and without reservation. They are the best!”
"Megan was a great communicator. She and her team set up an automatic search that helped bring available properties to our attention. And, very importantly, she worked with our limited schedule to arrange showings in small windows of time, sometimes last-minute, as we were repeatedly driving into Atlanta from out-of-state to view homes. Also, she really helped keep us positive and motivated through what turned out to be a very challenging and at times extremely frustrating search for our new home. The real achievement, though, was how Megan convinced us to see a house we really weren’t interested in based on the listing—even arranging a pre-market showing for us—and it turned out to be one of the few houses we considered making an offer on, and, in the end, the house we actually purchased. Without Megan we would have passed up this house, and it’s entirely thanks to her that we were able to find the house that met our needs. Megan and her team continued to be helpful even after the closing, providing references and advice for all those move-in tasks, which was essential for our move from out-of-state. And she’s made us personally feel welcome to Atlanta. Truly above and beyond. We wound up with a house that is within our budget, in a neighborhood we know and like, and with space enough to accommodate two work-from-home professionals and our dogs. We’ll definitely be recommending Megan and The Dammann Team to anyone we know who might be shopping for a home in Atlanta."
"We were very happy to work with Shannon Dammann Downs on the purchase of a new condo. She handled all of our questions and did some back-and-forth negotiating above and beyond the call of duty. At all times she was very professional and provided as much information as possible to us. We were so pleased that we also asked her to help us sell our own house, a bungalow in the MAK neighborhood of Decatur. She was willing to hear our ideas about the price that we would like to receive based on comps in the neighborhood. We were delighted to receive an offer very quickly and one that was well above our asking price. When the inevitable inspection report arrived, and things needed to be done, she helped us find excellent vendors to carry out the repairs whether small or large. We could not give a higher endorsement of Shannon Dammann Downs and her company. She’s a very easy-going and knowledgeable person to work with, a great combination! We never felt any pressure in buying or in selling. And we enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor on either side of the deal."
“We found Shannon and Sean through a recommendation from our realtor with Keller Williams in New Jersey. We had not purchased a home in 35 years and we were new to the Atlanta area and to Georgia. Shannon was extremely patient with us as buyers. The process was a little stressful as the housing inventory was very low in Spring of 2021. Our purchasing goals were to stay on budget and find a neighborhood we liked with the space we wanted and to avoid getting involved in a multiple offer bidding situation. Shannon helped us all along the way and listened to us. She was very knowledgeable about the areas we wanted to live in and arranged all of the home tours we requested. Despite the challenging market as buyers, we found a home that fit our needs and we are glad that we worked with Shannon and Sean and Keller Williams Metro Atlanta.”
"Dear Sean, I just wanted to thank you for all of the help you gave me when I bought my house in Decatur. I know that you went above and beyond the call of duty for me. You were patient with me while I was trying to find a home and you gave me invaluable advice. I am so grateful to you for helping us to get settled before school started, especially when it looked like we'd never make it. While I don't plan on moving again any time soon, when I do, you'll be my guy! I'll always be pleased to pass your name on as an outstanding realtor. Once again, many thanks for all of your hard work on my behalf."
“We used Sean as our listing agent to sell our house in Buckhead. As we were living in London at the time, Sean had to do a lot of extra work in our absence. When making decisions, his sole goal was how to best sell the house at the best price, and never about what was easiest for him. He single-handedly managed to get the house fixed, painted and ready for showing, as well as getting the repairs done at the buyers' request. Sean is extremely professional, and very effective in communicating with us, despite the distance and time difference between Atlanta and London. We are also very impressed with his knowledge for the business and his straight-forward approach. We will definitely use him again in the future.”
“We used Sean as our agent when we sold our Decatur home. We were very pleased with the work he did for us. Not only did he hold open houses and prepare very professional flyers, but he made a real effort to sell our home above and beyond what I think your "average" agent might do. He also kept in frequent touch with us to let us know when the house had been shown and would follow up with buyers to get their feedback which helped us market our home more effectively. It didn't take long for our house to sell thanks to Sean!”
“Great result! Our house sold quickly in a market going into a slowdown. Sean Dammann’s experience helped in responding to a buyers’ aggressive inspection report. You were able to quickly bring logic to the matter…and restore confidence and comfort to us.”
“The Dammann Team’s experience, integrity and professionalism facilitated a seamless sale of our home. Sean was extremely helpful and knowledgeable with pre-listing recommendations for minor renovations and overall presentation and staging. The process of showing our home and planning the open house was easy and convenient. We are extremely satisfied with the timing and value of our home sale. The team also provided excellent guidance during our property purchase, including beneficial review of HOA documents and help with approvals and permits. I would highly recommend The Dammann Team.”
“We have worked with other excellent realtors, but Sean’s team was by far the best. They knew who to call to get our house in shape for selling. When it came time for buying a new home, their negotiation skills and attention to detail saved us thousands. Sean trains other realtors, and it shows. In less experienced hands, our purchase could have easily fallen through. Sean’s team was extremely responsive, reliable, and proactive. It is always nice to be able to work with someone who is outgoing and friendly, but when it comes to selling and buying a house, what you really need is expertise – you will get all of these things with Sean and The Dammann Team.”
“I was desperate to move into the City of Decatur school district so that my son could go to high school with his best friends. The Dammann Team were the only agents I wanted to work with because they are so personally accessible — and because they know Decatur better than anyone else in real estate. Decatur is expensive and I was trying to buy a home in a "seller’s market.” Shannon and Sean were absolutely up to the challenge. They always responded right away when I had questions or if I was curious about a certain property that I had driven by. They also showed me a good number of places and were never discouraged when I didn’t feel a connection to the property. If I wanted to see a home, they got me in to see it. In the end, they got me a viewing of a home that was perfect for my son and me. When I felt instantly at home there, they jumped on the negotiations and I was very quickly under contract! We’re very happy with our new home and could not possibly be here without Shannon and Sean. Thank you, Dammann Team!”
“When we decided to sell our home in Decatur, there was no question that we would work with the Dammann Team. Sean and Shannon walked us through every step of the way, from getting the house ready to show to accepting the best offer and understanding the details of the closing. Sean and Shannon were kind, patient and above all, professional. They know their business! We will definitely work with them again with our future real estate needs.”
“Megan Ringer was extremely patient and communicative as our Buyer Agent. She created custom home listings that were delivered to us daily based on our home goals and preferences and she kept us well informed about new property listings, as well as the status of our home offers. She made the scheduling of home showings easy as she worked to accommodate around our work and school schedules, which we truly appreciated. Beyond the physicaltangible things we could see, there were also things we could not see but made a huge impact. For example, Megan went out of her way to research and provide references for home inspectors. When we finally found and purchased our 2nd home, she provided a vendor list of contractors for any future home renovations. She also researched and provided contact details for the Georgia Power refrigerator recycling program. She worked tirelessly to ensure all home repairs were done and warrantiesreceipts provided well before closing. While Megan may have had other clients, she never made us feel neglected. We would not have found and closed on this home if we did not have her as our realtor. Literally, the seller for our home said at the closing table that over 10+ offers came in, but he only wanted to work with Megan. We are over the moon about the results. We got a really great deal on our home and we know we would not have been able to do that without the help and guidance of Megan and the Dammann Team."
