When we met with Molly Carter Gaines to take on our search, we were fairly discouraged. We were moving back to the Atlanta-area after being overseas for two years, and were quite firm in our buyer needs- in-town living, walking distance to the Beltline and a home that would grow with us as our children age. We had started our search in February while still living abroad, but really hit the pavement hard once we returned to Atlanta in mid-summer. Upon our arrival, we had a wonderful agent who we had worked with in the past and truly think the world of; however, she was not as well-versed of the nuances of the specific neighborhood we had narrowed our...— Carly T.
I could write a bittersweet short story about how much I enjoy working with Molly on the sale of our home. We had lived in our home for seventeen years, and I was ambivalent about selling. It hurt my heart to leave. Molly was an empathetic presence who listened to me patiently and honestly helped me through parting with it by letting me know the buyer would love my home as much as I did. To sum her up in three words, I would say Authentic, Energetic, and Creative. In Molly, we found a person who could discuss area of improvement for our home without us feeling judged, could discuss ways to make cost-effective improvements, and easily understood and ...— Tara A.
I was fortunate enough to find Molly Carter Gaines as a realtor in Atlanta and she helped me find the most perfect home. Molly is a top notch professional and has skills beyond belief. I have been in the sales/service industry for twenty years now and would hire her in a heartbeat for any job pertaining to this. Her work ethic is one of the best I have ever seen.

I cannot say enough good things about her, except that I am thankful she played such an integral part in helping me pav...— Jennie S.
My husband and I had a absolutely flawless home buying experience with Molly. We moved to the Atlanta area from SC and looked on our own for almost a year to find the perfect home for our growing family. When Molly was recommended to us, within a week, we had a contract on a beautiful home and closed 4 weeks later. Molly is so well connected, full of positive energy, she gets to know her clients on a personal level to help with showing the best homes for each individual and/or family. One of the things I loved the most about Molly is she loves what she does! She promptly returns phone calls and texts and is always glad to answer ANY questions or con...— Amira W.
To say that Molly is the best realtor for In-Town Atlanta, may be slight exaggeration, but saying she is among the best is not.

Molly helped us find our dream home. We are so lucky that we were able to work with her. We connected with Molly after inquiring about a house that she had on the market. I can't tell you how many times my husband and I have said how thankful we are for that house because it led us to Molly. Not only is Molly a wonderful person, she has a tremendous understanding of the market in Atlanta, and can navigate it incredibly well. She negotiated on our behalf, and her experience helped us navigate properties with multiple offers. Molly is honest, energetic, and passionate about finding her clients the perfect home.— Carolyn G
Molly was a fantastic shepherd through our home buying journey. From knowing neighborhood comps down cold, to ensuring a smooth final closing session, she stayed on point and always presented us with a list of options, coupled with her sage advice. I particularly appreciated her guidance in the negotiations process during the selling of our home, which was a bit tricky with an inexperienced buyer. We felt like Molly had seen every situation before, and handled every obstacle with poise and grace. I would highly recommend her for any home seller, and if we ever move again, she will get our business.— Drew Z.
Molly is the absolute best Realtor I could have asked for! I had been putting off looking to buy a home, as it seemed extremely complicated and overwhelming, but after one meeting with Molly she handled everything. She is more than responsive, she is proactive to make sure your needs are met and everything is going as you hope. Within 2 months I have found the perfect home that I was hoping for. And on top she has great style and a great network to help with design ideas, renovations, and everything else needed to get settled in.— Miesje Z.
We had a great experience with Molly! She was extraordinarily responsive and always willing to do a showing for us at any time, day, or night. She was so quick to answer all of our questions throughout the process and has an incredibly upbeat and positive attitude. She was very personable and easygoing; no attitude or ego whatsoever. She was a pleasure to work with from the beginning until our closing and continues to reach out to offer guidance and advice with our forthcoming renovation. Thank you, Molly.— Catherine H.
We worked with Molly on two real estate transactions- as both buyer and seller- and could not have asked for a sharper, more trusting broker. She is a skilled listener and negotiator, with a deep knowledge of the Atlanta market. Most significantly, Molly is just a lovely person; her work ethic is second to none and she is a fiercely devoted advocate for her clients. Real estate is a high stake, personal journey and we feel incredibly lucky to have found Molly to guide us through it.— Cara M.
We had the best experience with Molly. While there is no way we would be in our current house without her knowledge, skills and connections, what set her apart the most was that she encouraged us to be patient in the process and wait for the right home instead of settling. That is how we knew we were working with the right realtor, and we ultimately landed in the perfect house for us. As a added bonus, Molly is just really lovely to be around. Cannot recommend her enough.— Rachel H.
Molly was a lifesaver. I was purchasing a newly constructed townhouse and didn't realize how much there was to negotiate and deal with. She handled so many things with the builder that saved me time, energy, and frustration. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. She gives great advice and is very responsive. Even though I asked her a ton of questions, she never made me feel like I was inconveniencing her. I would absolutely recommend her.— Rob B.
Molly was amazing during our entire home search and purchase process. She's knowledgeable, enthusiastic and super-patient (we were a little all over the place as buyers). This is our 4th time buying a home and our first time using Molly - she's been the best agent we've worked with! We can't say enough great things about her! Just wish we were buying another house now so we could work with her again.— Chris W.
I’m not usually one to write reviews, but for Molly, it’s worth sharing her work with the Zillow world. Molly helped me from start to finish with buying my first home. She walked me through the process and was responsive and patient with my many questions. She helped negotiate and represented my interests well, even when we had a slight differing of opinion. Would I work with her again? Absolutely.— Buyer
In a very complicated period in our lives Molly made selling and buying of our places seem easy. She's honest, smart, tough, savvy, funny, ahead of the game and someone you want to be on your side when you're buying and/or selling. If we have to move to Seattle or Miami anytime soon, I'll fly her in first. Not kidding. Molly is simply amazing. And that is an understatement.— Hein V.
The best realtor! Perfect combination of supportive and aggressive at finding us our house (and getting it) in this fast moving market. Sold my condo for the highest price ever of a unit in my complex. She is always responsive and available. You can't go wrong with her.— Rebecca L.
Molly is about as professional and honest as it gets! We continue to have a friendly relationship with her as well! If you want someone who has a wide knowledge of the local Atlanta area and treats all her clients with equal importance she the the realtor for you.— Seller
Molly is a great real estate agent! She held our hand every step of the process and checked in with us regularly. Also, she got us a good deal on the house! She listened to what we wanted and gave us her honest opinions on things. I highly recommend her.— Buyer
Molly is amazing! We could not be in our home today is it were not for her and the entire team she works with. Plus she was always so helpful to answer all our questions during the entire process. Don't think about it just go ahead and call her.— Maria A.
Molly is absolutely the best realtor I’ve ever worked with! She went out of her way, tirelessly, to accommodate us in the most professional way. I can’t say enough good things about her.— Connie S.
