Get to know Tina Smith
Metro Brokers was started with one office and a handful of sales associates in 1979 by John Hartrampf. More than 25 years later, Metro Brokers is one of the nation's largest full service real estate companies and the world's largest GMAC Real Estate franchise.
Under the leadership of Kevin Levent, who became President and CEO in 1996, the company has experienced exponential sales growth facilitated by the addition of nearly 2,000 new sales associates. Levent is considered a visionary by employees and sales associates alike, especially in the area of technology. He is also responsible for designing the most exciting new real estate offices in the South, featuring custom Italian light fixtures, modern art and furniture, loft style exposed rafters and ceiling conduits, eliptical coffee bars and private listing showrooms.
In June 2000, Levent hired Joe Dabbs as the company's Vice President of Operations. A 30-year veteran of the real estate industry and the former owner of one of the nation's largest real estate companies, Dabbs is responsible for recruiting and retention of new sales associates and instituting dozens of training programs to help those sales associates find success in real estate. He also founded the company's highly successful real estate academy which is now one of the largest in Georgia.
Another key decision by Levent was Metro Brokers' affiliation with GMAC Real Estate in 2001. While Metro Brokers remains an indepently owned and operated company, our affiliation with GMAC Real Estate has translated into increased brand name recognition in Atlanta and throughout the country. Metro Brokers has also benefited from the adoption of GMAC Real Estate's Premier Service®® philosophy which focuses on meeting your needs as a consumer.
In fact, GMAC Real Estate is the only national real estate company that gives clients the power to grade how an agent performs. With an overwhelming 94% satisfaction score, you already know you're getting the best.
