Here is a link to find someone in your area:
There are many agents to choose from who work at a variety of long established local firms, small specailized boutique firms, as well as big name national franchise firms. What I can tell you is there are no short cuts to picking an agent to represent you. Approach it as a job interview because that is what it is. Do your own research and compare agent qualifications and be sure you pay more attention to the agent than the firm they work for because it is the individual agent not the firm that ultimately represents you. It's important to have a personal discussion with a few agents and find out how they work, particularly if they have a team, and try to get a feel for the level of personal service you will recieve from the team leader versus an assistant or newby buyers agent and make sure you feel comfortable with thier level of service, operational style, and approach.
I would be happy to consult with you about your relocation objectives and answer any questions you may have about our market, other possible market options, or my unique buyer representation services for luxury property purchasers.
There are many area's within Buckhead to look into when you do arrive from Illinois.
I would be happy to set up an appointment and show you the best area's and homes in town.
You can contact me at your convenience. Pauline Moore 404-247-0900
I'm coming into this conversation late in the game so I'm not sure if you've already found a home and relocated. I've just listed an incredible Luxury home located in Sandy Springs/Buckhead (inside the Perimeter). You can check out the web site for the property at: http://www.4955Riverview.com. Also, if you haven't found an agent yet I'd love to help you find the perfect home. Good luck with your move!

Zana, Kara, Mina and Lisa and the rest of the team are a class act.
If you seek the "best way/place to find a top realtor who specializes in luxury homes" then you have Trulia Voices recommendations from Marian and I - Marian and I are two disparate, unattached professionals (never met her) who have their own hyper-local specializations, and we can both speak with authority about the best Realtor that we know in the Buckhead luxury submarket.
Call Zana Dillard. You should at least interview with her and meet her team before you decide to align yourself with any other agent.
