People You Need to Know Magazine Spotlight: Yolanda Graham ~ Realtor
Do you know how many people have trouble navigating the real estate market to find the perfect house … ending up with a realtor who is not focused on their long-term needs? Well, Yolanda Graham is different; she acts as her clients’ trusted advisor, giving them the information they need to find their dream home or investment property.
Born in New York to parents Betty Robinson and Doc Graham, former Negro League baseball legend and close friend to Jackie Robinson, Yolanda understands the importance of history and how a home is an important part of a family — creating their history and memories. Moving to Atlanta in 2003, she has become a respected realtor at Keller Williams Realty Cityside, a business leader and activist. She has also had the pleasure of working with Who’s Who professionals within the Atlanta area, including prominent executives and athletes relocating to the great state of Georgia.
Yolanda has always had a strong sense of community, but overcoming a serious accident helped her understand the true meaning of perseverance and the important role that family plays in one’s life. She uses this strength and knowledge every day as she helps family and investors with their real estate needs.
Some of Yolanda’s accolades include achieving the Million Dollar Club in her Rookie Year. She is also an active member of the Cobb Board of Realtors and a Certified Distress Property Expert. Volunteer organizations that she devotes time and energy towards are Habitat for Humanity and the March of Dimes. Yolanda has also made a personal commitment to the American Cancer Society — in honor of both her grandfather (Al Robinson) and close friend Deborah Mack.
Having earned her MBA from Keller University, Yolanda’s success as a businesswoman can be credited to facing her fears and her passion for helping others.
