Cassidy Turley established its Atlanta presence in 2011 with the acquisition of Carter's brokerage and property management operations.

"Lisa is a great addition to our Atlanta team, and I look forward to working with her as we continue to grow and thrive in the Southeast," said Doug Brandon, Cassidy Turley Regional Managing Principal. "Atlanta and the Southeast are among our highest priorities. Atlanta is a regional, national, and international business hub. It's a strategic market for Cassidy Turley not only due to its amazing growth and demographic patterns but also because our clients need us to be there."

She brings to Cassidy Turley an immense intellect combined with the ability to earn investor- and landlord-clients' trust, collaborate with tenant rep brokers to complete complex transactions and lead complex and diverse organizations.
