Good luck on your endeavor. Suggestion and you may have thought of this already. I live in the west mid-town area of Atlanta - a booming city. Plenty of folks moving back into town to beat the awful traffic (I grew up here - a rarity). Ergo, home prices intown have just continued to rise for the last 10 years. Old neighborhoods are booming. New construction is booming - townhomes, apartment homes, high-rise, etc.
In our old neighborhood (built in the 30s & 40s), one realtor has set himself apart - has become the neighborhood selling guru. Knows the neighborhoods in our area very well. He gives $300 to the neighborhood association on every sell he makes in the respectful neighborhood. Needless to say, when you want to sell a home, his name is "top of mind." $300 may not sound like much, but for a neighborhood association (not a home owner`s association with dues - these old neighborhoods in Atlanta don`t do that), that money is really appreciated and he has made many new friends and I`m sure it has helped him to create a nice niche in his area.
Just thought I`d pass along for you to ponder.
