Dear Friends, Clients, and fellow community members,


As a young girl growing up on a small South Georgia farm, I witnessed my grandfather Charles DeVane make a deal with a simple nod and hand shake. Afterwards he looked down and said, “Always remember that you are only as good as your word.” This left a lasting impression on my values and is exactly why I believe honesty and trust is key in any business relationship. These two words brought me from a small secluded office to South Georgia’s premier real estate company that you see today.


Here at Coldwell Banker Active Real Estate, we base every single real estate transaction on that same principal, which has cultivated meaningful relationships with our clients that still exist today. Relationships that you can expect to come from the level the service we provide through our commitment to you. For many, a real estate transaction is the most important financial decision they will ever make. Our goal has always been to offer the best in this field of service and it gives us great satisfaction knowing we delivered.


It is no secret that the past few years have been hard on everyone, especially the housing market. Through this we not only survived but grew beyond anyone’s expectation. This, along with Coldwell Banker Active Real Estate’s core principals, are the epitome of what Active represents. Exceeding expectations every transaction through trust and honesty.


Though our foundation came from a simple life lesson shared by my Grandfather on a South Georgia farm, we have grown into an organization that is world class. Many claim to be the best, but doing the right thing even when no one is looking along with good quality service always pays off, and this is exactly why we are the only ones with the numbers to prove it. That said, thank so much for your interest in our company and we at Coldwell Banker Active Real Estate look forward to the opportunity to assist you in your real estate endeavors.


Warmest of regards,


Melissa Burgess, Broker
