"The moment we drove up [to it] more than 20 years ago, we fell in love with the house,” said Kim Noonan. “The [place] was perfect, and over the years, we made three [next-door] land purchases and many improvements. Shanna understood [how special the house and property was,] and she was [particular] in every [part] of the [.fow2-1]marketing[.fow2-1] and sale of our home.

The main house, designed by famous [.fow1-2]residential[.fow1-2] architect William T. Baker, is made with a variety of rare and expensive materials. The grounds include multiple gardens, lawns, and a tennis court. The home was decorated by award-winning [.fow2-2]interior designer[.fow2-2] Suzanne Kasler.

I am [proud] to work with [homeowners] who [trust] me with their extraordinary properties,” Shanna Smith said of the Buckhead [.fow1-1]estate[.fow1-1]. “We had a good idea of the type of buyer who would [care about] everything 3490 Riverly Road offers. We [wanted] to [create] a [smart] [.fow2-1]marketing plan[.fow2-1] to re-launch the property, which had been on the market for over a year [before we got involved]. I am pleased we were able to achieve the results we [hoped for]. It is an [amazing] property, and our goal was to attract [the right] buyers.
