Leianne Messina-Brown

Real Estate Professional

Leianne Messina-Brown is a resident of Sandy Springs/Dunwoody and specializes in this sought-after market, celebrating the lifestyle of this area as "small-town, Southern charm in the heart of Atlanta." Residents enjoy the quaintness of a small town while experiencing the luxuries of a large city, as these cities are convenient to Buckhead and Downtown Atlanta. Because of her local expertise, she is a top agent in the Sotheby's International Realty® relocation program for these popular suburbs. Additional successes include over $63 million in career sales and the "2007 Rookie of the Year" award (selling in excess of $5 million within her first year) with her previous brokerage. She is also a Member of the Atlanta REALTORS® Top Producers, a distinction that recognizes the top 15% of members for their achievements in real estate.

With more than 29 years of experience, Leianne is a proven leader in sales, marketing, branding and public relations. She honed her skills working for some of retail's powerhouse brands, including Ann Taylor, bebe, Jessica McClintock and The Gap, Inc. As the sponsorship and marketing director for The Sonoma County Crushers, a minor league baseball team in Northern California, she launched the team's inaugural season by developing marketing programs with Pepsi, Charles Schultz and major Sonoma and Napa County wineries. Her design and marketing background, paired with the Sotheby's International Realty brand, sets her efforts apart when preparing homes for sale and negotiating for her buyers. Her clients fondly say she can be "as tough as a bulldog, or as sweet as a golden retriever."

Her vast rolodex of connections spans from having lived and worked in some of the world's largest markets, such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Portland, Boston, Cape Cod, Tampa, Sarasota and Tokyo. After many years of travel, her favorite place to call home is her current - Atlanta - for the fantastic lifestyle it offers for her family, work and recreation.

Raised by a single mom, Leianne credits her exemplary work ethic to watching her mother deliver newspapers at 4 a.m. and bag groceries to support her family. Frequent moves across the country afford her the understanding of the importance of having access to safe and affordable housing. Now, a successful and driven REALTOR®, Leianne proudly donates a portion of her income to programs dedicated to housing assistance and foster care.

Leianne stays current in Metro Atlanta happenings by serving on numerous committees and boards, including the Dunwoody Perimeter Chamber. She’s previously worked with the Dunwoody Atlanta REALTORS® Association Leadership Development Committee, Atlanta REALTORS® Association Governmental Affairs Committee, SSYS-Sandy Springs Youth Sports and Wesleyan Arts Alliance. She was also the social chair for Chaparral Estates, participated on the Membership Development Committee for Dunwoody Country Club, was the publicity and marketing chair for the Wesleyan School Artist Market, the publicity co-chair for the Wesleyan Gala and the marketing consultant for the Huntcliff Equestrian Center. Additionally, her daughter rides for Fortitude Farm Interscholastic Equestrian Team (IEA) in Milton. Her children attend Wesleyan School, and she attends Northpoint Community Church and Passion Church.
