    We are so thrilled to introduce the new East Atlanta Main Street Coordinator, Chelsea Sommers! She will be a key coordinator and contributor to EABA and the EAV Main Street program. Here’s a little about Chelsea:

    “I have been a real estate agent with Keller Knapp (previously Red Robin Realtors) for almost a decade now. I love this line of work mostly because I love being out and about and meeting new people. 

    I have two young girls both attending Parkside Elementary. Before receiving my real estate license, I worked in the field of marketing and communications for Red Robin Group and United Way. 

    As for my life outside of work, I love to entertain at my home, spend time outside as much as possible and enjoy this amazing city I have come to call my home over the past 13 years. I’m very excited to explore all of the opportunities that come with this position and to get to know everyone!”

    Come say hello to Chelsea at the next In-Person EABA General Meeting on April 19th at 6 PM!
