Shahla Macdonald was born with real estate in her blood. "For as long as I can remember, I've gone to open houses on Sundays!" She has consistently achieved selling success and been an individual top producer since 2002.  A Georgia native, she grew up in Roswell, in Brookfield Country Club. She attended Roswell High School and Emory University where she earned a dual major in English and Sociology. Both subjects strengthened her ability to communicate effectively. In Sociology, she learned how to look at contracts from all perspectives. This translates into real estate, in that, if you can get inside the head of the other party, you can write a contract that will be win-win for everyone. She prides herself on being a good listener and delivering what the client requests. She is easily accessible and will give her honest opinion and advice.


Upon completion of her degree at Emory University, Shahla lived in Virginia for 3 years while her husband attended law school at the University of Richmond. There, she did marketing for several small businesses. She taught small business owners how to reach new clients and increase their exposure in the marketplace. These have become vital skills in the virtual world of real estate. In 2002, she and her husband returned to Georgia and planted themselves in Woodstock to raise their family. Having two children, Shahla understands the needs and desires of young families. From amenities and school systems, to new construction and renovation, Shahla delivers results for her clients!


A member of the Atlanta Board of Realtors, Shahla specializes in the metro Atlanta area. A realtor since 2002, Shahla understands the market, has a proven marketing plan, and a history of demonstrated success. Experience matters, especially in challenging markets. Her success as a realtor comes from the pleasure of helping families like yours with their real estate needs. Work together to get a house SOLD BY SHAHLA!

Shahla was wonderful to work with and sold my house before it was even listed! I would highly recommend her. Everything about the sale went so smoothly.

Helped me buy and sell homes

Shahla is simply the best. She's warm, friendly, great listener, willing to push for what you want, but not afraid to tell you when you are overreaching. Every step of the way, in selling one home and then buying another, Shahla was there, always available. She took the time to learn who we are and what we wanted. And even what we didn't know what we wanted (or did not want). I think this sums up why we love Shahla. We were looking at a house and going through it, we started settling, and probably would have put in an offer for that house. Shahla said this house isn't for you and laid out the reasons why. Don't settle she said, you're perfect home is coming. And she was right. A week or so later, we found that perfect home. We consider ourselves Blessed to have had Shahla working with us.

Listed and sold a home

Shahla assisted us in selling our home for a job relocation. She had to jump through a lot of extra hoops to comply with the relocation company's requirements but did so willingly. Shahla offered great advice on getting our home ready to sell and in negotiations. She knows the area well being a life-long resident and knows real estate from both her own experience and being raised by agents. Shahla is easy to work with, provides top-notch service and is highly recommended.

Helped me buy and sell homes

If I could give Shahla 6 stars I would. I've honestly lost count of how many homes Shahla has helped me purchase and sell over the last 10+ years...I believe we are at 6 or 7 total transactions now. She is EXTREMELY knowledgeable in the real estate arena, the Atlanta metro area, economic situations in general (that affect home buying/selling), negotiating, issues that arise with a house, housing trends, etc. She has become a very good friend of ours over the years, and is a very ethical and professional real estate agent overall. I would highly recommend Shahla, and would be more than happy to speak with any potential buyers/sellers as a reference for her. Thanks as always, Shahla!!!
