The Drake Realty Story
Glenn F. Drake founded Drake Realty in 1991 exclusively to source and identify real estate investment opportunities within the Atlanta real estate market. Mr. Drake was in a unique position to achieve success in the real estate investment market. Along with an extensive background in tax research and a Master of Business Administration degree, he has been a licensed realtor in Georgia since 1987. Upon becoming a licensed broker in 1991, he formed Drake Realty and Tax Service, Inc, now known as Drake Realty.
In 2003, Bernie Drake joined the team at Drake Realty as a full-time Broker, although she has always been involved in the business on a part-time basis. She has held her real estate brokerage license since 1991. Until she transitioned to a full-time career at Drake Realty, she held a high-level management position in accounting for a large firm in Georgia. Bernie brings an unsurpassed level of financial knowledge and portfolio management experience to assist clients in identifying and evaluating real estate investment opportunities, both commercial and residential. Her background in management, combined with corporate and individual taxation, makes her a seamless fit to manage all administrative functions for the Drake Realty offices and serve as the Broker for Drake Realty in Georgia.
Buying, selling, and investing is not only something we do – it is something we live. Don’t simply ask your real estate agent how many homes they have sold for others. Ask how many they have bought for themselves!
As we have expanded over the years, we have consistently integrated our investment philosophy to generate superior results for homebuyers. Buying a home and investing in property have more in common than people may realize, and at the end of the day, buyer value is our number one priority. We work to ensure you’re getting exactly what you need for your family at the best price possible while meeting your personal preferences on style, functionality, and amenities. Our services include brokerage for buyers and sellers, property management, and “investment realty”. We also keep an extensive database of recommended contractors, mortgage companies, and other services that our clients may require. And we have used many of them ourselves!
The modern real estate market looks much different now than it did 30 years ago, as we have experienced digitalization, recessions, and innovative advancements. But through it all, one thing has remained constant: the diligence, persistence, and impeccable customer service excellence of the team at Drake Realty.
