Buford and Lake Lanier Real Estate Experts

Your Real Estate Gateway to Lake Lanier Properties

About Us

Atlanta Home Connections Owner/Broker Virginia Horton-Lee built her business on the belief that everyone deserves expert representation when they’re buying and selling real estate.

“This is the first time in the history of our nation that consumers really need us,” Virginia says. “It is very difficult to sell your own home these days, and it’s even harder to buy one without help.”

Our History

Virginia began her journey to real estate success way back in 1997. She originally sold new homes for large national builders, but she was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug in 2007 and opened Atlanta Home Connections … right before the biggest market crash since the Great Depression.

It should tell you a lot that Atlanta Home Connections grew 290% during one of the most devastating economic crises in our country’s history. That’s right -- when other Real Estate firms were closing, we were growing. Our expertise, reputation and work ethic withstood a Recession that took out so many of our competitors.

“Virginia is a true professional. The experience of buying a new home can be so overwhelming and she walked me through every step. Every detail was taken care of professionally and completely. She believed in me, my vision for a new home and all the business details in between. Virginia's expertise in this field is outstanding and her patience is commendable. Thank you Virginia. It was my absolute pleasure to work with you. You are always there for me.” – Alex Rogers.

Our Services

Since then, we’ve proudly opened several new divisions of our company, including a rehab division, foreclosure division, international buyers division, and more. It feels great to be able to help our clients in so many different ways.

Lake Lanier Expertise - Not all lakeside properties are created the same. If you’re looking for deep water for your boat, we’d be happy to visit prospective properties with our company boat and check the depth of the lake that abuts each property. We can also point you to the best fishing spots, hidden boat-only restaurants, and everything else you need to know to make the most of lake living.

“We are now in our beautiful new house and have been thinking about everything that Virginia did to get us here. If you are looking for a house, I would love to share the great experience I had with her. It was so important to us.  This was the first time working with Virginia and I told her how picky I was. She told me this was my house and I should not settle. We looked at many houses before we found the perfect one.  Her care and knowledge of the area made this purchase entirely different from our first house.” - Alma Zapata and Juan Onesto

Luxury Property Management - Thinking of turning your upscale property into a source of passive income? We’d be happy to find, place, and manage tenants and your property for you. Renting is easy when Atlanta Home Connections does all the heavy lifting for you.

Foreclosure/Short Sale Division - We have been working with asset management companies and banks since 2009 to sell foreclosed homes and short sales to buyers and investors. If you’re looking for a great deal on a bank-owned home, we’ll find it.

Financing Guidance - We have personal relationships with several lenders in the area, some who specialize in financing 2nd and 3rd homes. We’d be glad to connect you with the right mortgage company who will make your lending process easy and stress-free.
