Johnson possesses 25 years of experience in residential real estate and maintains numerous leadership roles within the state of <span class="xn-location">Georgia's</span> leading real estate association.</p> <p>&quot;<span class="xn-location">Blue Ridge</span> is considered the jewel of <span class="xn-location">North Georgia</span>,&quot; said <span class="xn-person">Philip White</span>, president and CEO, Sotheby's International Realty. &quot;The market began developing years ago among retirees and second homeowners but became more popular for buyers looking for large outdoor space. The area also offers affordability compared to the surrounding areas and is within driving distance to <span class="xn-location">Atlanta</span>. The addition of the <span class="xn-location">Blue Ridge</span> office allows the company to further service their clients and I am thrilled to support their continued growth.&quot;</p> <p>&quot;Given the demand we are seeing for homes in the <span class="xn-location">North Georgia</span> area, it made sense for us to expand to better support this growing market,&quot; said Boehmig. &quot;While the availability of mountain and lakefront homes are highly competitive, our company is able to provide on-the-ground knowledge, a white-glove level of service, and international marketing opportunities through our affiliation with Sotheby's International Realty.&quot;</p> <p>Mountain Sotheby's International Realty will have several agents supporting the new office who bring an extensive familiarity of the North Georgian market.</p> <p>The Sotheby's International Realty® network currently has nearly 26,000 affiliated independent sales associates located in over 1,000 offices in 81 countries and territories worldwide. Mountain Sotheby's International Realty listings are marketed on the sothebysrealty.com global website. In addition to the referral opportunities and widened exposure generated from this source, the firm's brokers and clients will benefit from an association with Sotheby's auction house and worldwide <i>Sotheby's International Realty</i> marketing programs. Each office is independently owned and operated.</p> <div class="wcag-arialevel-3" style="display: block; font-size: 1.17em; margin-block-start: 1em; margin-block-end: 1em; margin-inline-start: 0px; margin-inline-end: 0px; font-weight: bold; text-align: left;" role="heading" aria-level="3"><b>Sotheby's International Realty </b></div><p>Sotheby's International Realty was founded in 1976 as a real estate service for discerning clients of Sotheby's auction house.
