“I strive to be a positive influence, a steady voice, and above all let my integrity lead the way.”
Growing up in Central Ohio, the Midwestern roots of my youth are heavily instilled in me. From my work ethic to my demeanor, I am a believer in getting the job done and getting it done the right way for my clients.
In college, at the University of Dayton, I worked third shift for a large manufacturing company, putting myself through undergrad. After graduation, the company moved me to Atlanta, where I worked as a systems analyst for the next five years. It was in 2004, when I realized I was spending more time dreaming about the beauty in old houses and exploring the unique neighborhoods in Atlanta than I did getting excited to go to my corporate job every day, that I decided I needed a new career. So after talking to a friend in the business, I got my real estate license and started dabbling in it. I was selling a couple of houses a month and after a year of learning the ins and outs of the business, I took a leap, leaving my job and beginning a new adventure that allowed me to work daily with what I’m passionate about – tapping into my knowledge of local communities and being the go-to resource to my clients.
My timing was impeccable…not long after I got into real estate full-time, the Great Recession occurred. I knew I had to make a go of it, so I dug in my heels, putting that Midwestern upbringing to the forefront, and forged ahead. I steadily grew my business in a down economy and began adding team members.
In 2006, Rick [Hale] asked me to join the Keller Williams Intown Atlanta office and in 2016, he and I merged our team’s, creating a unified group that consistently ranked at or near the top of the Keller Williams Atlanta Midtown market center. Now we are thrilled to be teaming up with Pam [Ahern] and her group to form RPM Group Home Advisors, where we believe in transforming our clients’ real estate experience. By being trusted advisors, we provide advice, guidance, and our expertise on the home buying process, the market, and the Atlanta neighborhoods, so that our clients can make the decisions that are best for them.
On a personal note, I’ve been married since 2006, have twin daughters, and a dog that finds any possible way to escape our backyard to explore. I enjoy restoring my 1997 Jeep Wrangler, spending time on the lake, and volunteering. I’ve helped run the Neighbor in Need program in East Atlanta since 2015, sat on the Governance Board of Burgess-Peterson Academy for five years, ran committees for East Atlanta Strut, the Porch Press, and have spent years serving on the Advisory Council of PAWS Atlanta, a no-kill animal shelter.
Everyday my goal is to help others – from my team members, to my family and friends, to the community – I strive to be a positive influence, a steady voice, and above all let my integrity lead the way. I’m thrilled to be on this journey with our great team and look forward to serving you in your real estate needs.
“Had an excellent experience with RPM Home Advisors, specifically Marc Takacs who was our realtor. He went above and beyond. Couldn’t have ask for anyone better. Marc’s assistants were also extremely helpful and professional. I appreciated the detailed and informative communications. Will definitely be using RPM in the future.”
“Marc, Darcy, Donna, and the entire RPM [Home Advisors] team did an outstanding job assisting us with the purchase of our home. We were first-time buyers and when we found “the one”, of course there were countless other offers we had to compete against. Luckily, Marc and his team knew precisely how to navigate the multiple offer situation and position us perfectly to come out as the winning bidder! Marc’s knowledge of the Atlanta market is unparalleled and the whole team provides a white glove experience from top to bottom. I would recommend them to ANYONE looking to buy or sell a home.”
“Selling a home can often be a difficult and frustrating process. Marc and Donna made our home sale very easy and they were wonderful to work with! Their advice was sound and we sold our house at the perfect time and price that we wanted. Thank you Marc and Donna!!!!”
“Marc Takacs was referred by a mutual friend 10 years ago when we were house shopping in our move to Atlanta. He led us to a great house in a great neighborhood and then continued to build a friendship with us over the years. We gladly chose Marc’s team when the time came 10 years later to sell our treasured home. Leaving a good place is never easy, but Marc’s friendship and professionalism made it all work out wonderfully.”
“I selected Marc and the RPM [HomeAdvisors] team to sell my home in East Atlanta after extensive research showed that they had among the highest list-price-to sales-price ratios combined with the shortest days on market in the community. In short, they had a track record of selling homes for more money in the shortest time. Every interaction with Marc and the other members of the RPM team was responsive and professional. Highly recommend!”
